View Full Version : About to schedule Hair Transplant

Hello Everyone,

I started to thin on the top of my head when I was around 21 years old. I was lucky at the time my hairline was not affected and simply carried a hair style where I would grow my hair long on top and brush my hair from my crown forward to cover up thinning, and spike my frontal hairline upwards. It also helped i am tall standing 6'3 and people could not notice.

However since the age of 28 my hairline started to thin and has slowly ruined my cover up. I was using concealers to cover up as well. I am now at the age of 34 and I have see through hair (especially in sunlight) and its obvious im balding. Concealers at this point even look stupid. However at this point the way i style my hair i look like a norwood 3, but I have actually been diagnosed has a norwood 4/5. I am actually headed to be a norwood 7 (most older family members are norwood 7)

I live in the Montreal region and seriously considering getting a HT.

What do you guys think? Should I do it? If so FUT or FUE. It seems like FUT seems more reasonable considering the price and higher success rate/yeild. The scarring issue does worry me and what will it look like 10-30 years down the road.

Also any recommended doctors?

I appreciate all answers and comments. Thank you to tall
