Smile If the top of your head was a banker, it would be getting ripped off!

We know that about 50% of hair loss can occur before it is recognized by the human eye. Is this good news or bad news for hair loss suffers? Both! It’s bad news for people who wanted to prevent their hair loss from occurring prior to taking some type of medical treatment like Propecia and/or Rogaine. However, it is good news for people who have already lost a significant amount of hair because it means they only have to replace 50% of their hair to give the “appearance” of a full head of hair. That’s right; you don’t have to replace every hair you lost! Just 50% of the lost can give you the “appearance” of a full head of hair!

Of course, the degree of hair loss is a major factor in determining if hair transplantation can give you the “appearance” of a full head of hair. Factors such as donor hair density and the amount of hair loss are also essential.

So, if the top of your head was a banker, it would be getting ripped off! Lose 14,000 grafts and only have to pay back 7,000 grafts. That’s a good deal for you!

Thumbs up Well put Joe!

The internet is filled with such BS when it comes to hair loss and surgical hair restoration. I think it's so important for people to understand that early intervention is always key when treating hair loss and like you eluded to, more grafts isn't always better when undergoing hair transplant surgery. Utilizing your donor reserve wisely can mean the difference between a great hair transplant and a mediocre one.

Default Cookie??!

Oh man, Dave, I'm jealous -- has your seduction training already worked and you now have a significant other named Cookie? Does she have any single friends that don't mind the follicularly challenged? :-)

I was just kidding with you about the Cookster. I can set you up with girls to seduce....I'll even tell them that you're going to seduce them beforehand.
