    Scaring is the only thing that would prevent me. I've seen a couple dudes with egregious scars. They're straight up fugged and can't even shave their head.

    Permanent scarring, inability to create anything close to a full head of hair, lifelong commitment to hormone-altering drugs, probable need for multiple procedures, ridiculous cost. Plus, I don't trust most of these doctors since they seem to be totally committed to making ridiculous amounts of money with hair transplants, but don't seem to want to innovate in any way.

    All of the above and lastly at the end of the day it is surgery. Surgery is never something to be taken lightly. At least for me it isn't. With every surgery there is the potential for things to go wrong, if it does, then what?

    A very small percentage of individuals that experience hair loss opt for surgical hair restoration. There are many reasons for this including finances and lack of awareness.
