So I am 31/M and have been considering a hair transplant. Not going to get into the details too much but every site I have seen the ‘success’ photos are dudes with major black and thick hairs and any that I have seen that would be considered thin follicle hair just look like they have added on a couple more years before you have to shave it anyway.
So I am asking is there anyone here who has what you would call ‘thin’ hair had a successful hair transplant that doesn’t look completely terrible?
I use a construction metaphor for explaining fine hair vs a coarser hair. Think of fine has as lumbar 1 by 1, and medium hair as lumbar 2 by 2 and coarse hair as lumber of 4 by 4. If you were to build a fence, you would opt for 4 by 4 first for the fence as there is more wood in a 4 by 4 than a one by one. Fine hair reflects a one by one measurement of lumber and a fence made of 1 by 1’s take more 1 by 1’s than if you had 4 by 4 wood boards. A hair transplant with fine hair means that less hair volume will be moved per hair shaft transplanted. Men with fine hair always had fine hair, so that they are not surprised when then get a hair transplant with their own fine hair. I just don’t want a new patient to expect that they will get the results of a man with coarse hair if they get a hair transplant with me. Setting realistic expectation is what it is all about.
