I currently wear hairpiece that I’ve had for about 25 years (I’m 50 now). it’s a bonding tape/glue kind. my shop in phila is closing and I’m wondering if it’s time to consider transplantation. however, how would i transition to that w/o everyone knowing? do you have anyone that is/was in this situation
We’ve transitioned many patients from a wig/ hair piece to hair transplant and SMP.
If you choose the SMP method, you can still have the hair piece during the process and when complete, have a “coming out” party and show the world you decided to shave it all off.
If you choose the hair transplant method, you can have the FUE surgery and still wear the hair piece (without the glue) and over the course of several weeks to months, have the hair piece made with thinner looking hair.
This a of course a very simple way of explaining a delicate process. You would need to sit down and discuss the plan with a doctor in detail.
