Can a hair transplant be performed on an African American? Every video or before and after photo I see has a Caucasian guy with minimal hair loss. He will have hair around the side and maybe slight balding around the crown. An African American male cannot hide their balding issue, or better yet doesn’t have the hair to spare for a hair transplant while maintaining a short hair cut. Has a successful hair transplant ever been performed on African American male to continue the growth of hair where it was lost mainly around the middle or back of the crown?

Thank you,
