For anyone who has had a hair transplant or known someone who has, what was the experience like once returning to work? Did people ask questions? Was it super noticeable? My idea is that you just have to own it I guess, which sucks when working at major companies.
Most people can get away with a hair transplant never being detected. First you have to have all of the crusts washed off the first day so that there are no scabs on your recipient area, just a short beard. Second, if you are very bald, let your beard grow out so people will focus on your beard, or if you have a beard, shave it off. People pick up big changes and facial hair so let it grow to create big changes. The need for facial hair may not be required if you have some hair to use as cover. Be creative. Everyone I have done hair transplants made it work for them.
