So I saw one of the best docs in the business a couple of years ago. I’m probably a NW2-ish but I have temple recession. 2 years ago my hair was in way better shape. Now, this past summer I basically lost my temple points and have some diffuse thinning up top. So much more apparent on one side of my head though, and as a result I can’t part my hair effectively on that side. I remember at the time of my consult, this doc kept saying how I was the perfect candidate because I already have good hair. So if I wanted to go aggressive, I could because he thought I had a low chance of losing more hair. He knew my family history (my dad had decent hair into his 30s but then he kept losing it and he’s now a NW7). Looking back on my consult, I’m really disappointed that the doctor was so confident about my hair. It’s not realistic. It felt like he just wanted more money. I ended up not getting the transplant.
Hair loss is ALWAYS progressive by its nature. Your doctor either didn’t know what he was talking about or was out to sell you his services at your expense (wanted to get into your wallet).
