If hair cloning is a viable option in the future (perhaps in 15-20 years since I know the time line keeps moving every year) would you expect to see a large number of people elect to have a hair transplant for the sole reason of increasing overall hair density? If the amount of available donor hair was no obstacle, could someone thicken their existing hair?
Obviously, I would be satisfied just having decent hair coverage, and would elect to have a hair transplant in the future if I am a decent candidate, but I also don’t want previous hair loss remedies I’ve tried to affect any potential â€˜cure’ in the future either.
I’ve always believed that hair transplant candidates should go ahead and get their hair now while they are young enough to enjoy it. To be bluntly honest, there’s no point in waiting until you are an old man for what may never come about (hair cloning).
Researchers are making great strides with hair cloning, but I have no idea how many years it’s going to be before anything reliably safe and effective is commercially available. If reliable hair cloning ever does come about to allow for unlimited donor hair, I could see possibly more people having their existing hair thickened.
I obviously can’t know what the future holds, but I don’t see how moving hair from the back of the head into the top/front of the head would prevent any possible future treatment.
