Hello. I am a 17 year old male that maybe hair transplantation is the answer to my problem. So heres what happaned. This was about 6-7 years ago when i was a young boy i used to pull on the front part of my hair. I know thta is one of the hair problems children face (Alopecia Trichotillomania), but i was doing that for a really short period of time. After about 2 weeks of pulling I had completely stopped pulling on my hair. After a long period of time most but not all of my hair grew back. Its been 6 to 7 years now and i have a few bald spots that have been bothering me ever since. I have one a little less than a dime, and my hairline isnt shaped right, and scattered mirco tin bald areas. Also, I would like to know from an estimate, how much it would cost for this procedure, and what is the difference betweeen FUE, FUT, and a hair transplant. I live in the los angeles area. I really want to fix my hair problem. Thank you.
Your first step should be to get a diagnosis. Small bald spots may reflect alopecia areata or ringworm and neither of these should be transplanted. There is no substitute for a diagnosis by a good doctor.
Assuming that you are a candidate for a hair transplant, it is difficult to estimate the cost of something that I have not seen. If you can send me pictures or give me some way to understand the size of the bald areas, maybe I can estimate the job. If it is small, use coins to tell me (e.g 3 dime size areas or one silver dollar size area). On that basis, I can estimate the job. Picking or pulling out the hair (trichotillomania) must be under absolute control or it will happen again. The picking must be solved before you transplant it. I can always tell if there is active picking going on in your head.
As you are in the Los Angeles area, pay me a visit and I will determine what the problem is, its scope, and what to do next.
