Most posts I read on various hair loss forums like Reddit, seem to be from guys who’re in their late teens/early 20’s who were probably going to be able to grow beards anyway, but for whom the minox may have just accelerated the process. Any success stories from older guys? I’m nearing 40 myself and looking for some inspiration. Much appreciated.
Men react differently to hair loss at any age. The most common reactions involve opting for very short haircuts or even shaving their heads. This trend is noticeable in places like airports or shopping centers. Some men embrace this change and never look back.
Others take a different route, seeking ways to regain their hair. Many of them share their experiences and seek solutions on platforms like Reddit or various forums. Some younger men might become fixated on their hair loss due to familial experiences.
Then, there’s a group who prefer not to rely on medications and choose the hair transplant route. They seek an immediate solution, despite the significant cost involved. I’ve performed hair transplants on men as old as 92, driven by various reasons like wanting to appear younger for dating purposes. Typically, men between 35 to 55 years old make this decision. With today’s technology, unlike older methods, about half of men can restore their hair in a single transplant session.
The crucial question here is personal: Does hair loss bother someone enough to (1) commit to lifelong medication (assuming it works), or (2) opt for a hair transplant despite the cost?
There are numerous success stories addressing hair loss, many of which are shared on platforms like Reddit. Are you bothered enough to go through treatments such as daily medications or a hair transplant. Only you can answer this question.
