Every hair loss "solution" seems to come with compromises.
I disagree. There are so many men whose lives have been transformed because they've had an HT.
Ideally I'd save the money and get it done later, but I feel at 28 I need to do something now. I'd have to save hard for a good few years, by which time I feel I'd be putting my life on hold
If I absolutely have to I'd do a graft and deal with it, but I'd so much prefer FUE.
Really wish I had a spare 13k kicking around.
Where were you looking to go to? A lot of your decision also depends on the surgeon. For instance, Rahal charges a preposterous amount of money for his hair transplants. So obviously, going there may seem like a non-option.
Have you considered maybe Dr Keser from Turkey? I've seen his work on various forums and it looks really good, plus he isn't that dear.
But definitely avoid getting an FUT. You are likely to get a big scar, which mostly (in my opinion) depends on your genetics. So sure, MAYBE it won't be bad. But maybe it will. Ultimately you don't want to be replacing one problem with another. Get a good FUE and in five years time you will be thanking yourself I'm sure. Wheras if you went for FUT you will probably ask yourself "Oh, why didn't I just spend the extra 1-2k and do it properly the first time!".
