I’m a junior in College and my roommates are telling me that I am losing my hair. I never noticed it before but I now realize that I can see through my entire scalp. It looks like my hair is thinning everywhere. I am thinking seriously about getting a hair transplant.
You need to be evaluated by an expert who specializes in hair transplantation, and is honest and doesn’t do it just for the money he gets from you. A good opinion is critical. I met with a man from Reddit last week who thought he was balding and had seen another doctor who offered him a hair transplant. When I examined him with the HAIR CHECK instrument and a trichoscope, it was clear he was not balding (and he did not have DUPA), so what he was seeing was very fine hair with very poor density (which I measured as very low). He was probably born that way and just noticed it recently from comments by friends. If he got a hair transplant with his poor hair and poor density, he would end up deformed for life because he had terrible hair and just would never make a good hair transplant candidate. If he felt strongly about his appearance, a wig might work for him or he should just accept what he has. We could offer him Scalp Micropigmentation which would make his hair appear much thicker. It would make his white scalp less prominent which is a much better option than a wig because it is full freedom to be himself.
