I hear about the self-confidence issue all of the time. You would not believe how many wealthy, very successful people I have performed hair transplants on and the reason driving them is almost always the issue of “self confidence”. A few well known people in the world of tech, some CEOs of fortune 500 companies and some very famous actors, had hair transplants by me in the very early part of their career. We have become friends and the actors, as a good example, absolutely believe that the hair transplants transformed them in terms of their “self-confidence” giving them the freedom to be themselves and to do what they do best without worrying about hair loss. Issues of self-confidence is not something men talk about to just anybody, but to the man in the mirror, they tell it the way it is. Even Donald Trump has a hair problem and I am sure that is part of his insecurity. The post below from Reddit shows the importance of family and friends in opening up and talking about hair loss problems.
