    The psychological effect is a big one. Are you ok with people knowing you've had work done? If the answer is no then don't do it. The toll a hair transplant takes on the scalp is what really messed me up. The scarring and flaky skin are a lot to handle. If you think "I'll just shave it off when I'll lose hair around the grafts" don't get a hair transplant.

    Scars can be cool, but scars from cosmetic surgery are not.

    A person is a good candidate for a hair transplant when they have a stable supply of donor hair which is adequate to cover the current and future areas of hair loss. Since it is very difficult to assess the long-term stability of donor hair and the extent of future hair loss when patients are very young, it is best to wait to have a hair transplant until at least the age of 25.

    Hi! I don't know if I am replying correctly to the thread. But I have a few questions about scalp to chest hair transplant, in which I am interested to undergo. Based on statistics of men who undergone this surgery, how much is the %recovery growth rate, how many months to wait until hair will sprout, and would hair sourced from the scalp grow continuously like they were in the head? Thank you.

    Hi,
    Its proven to be inconsistent. If you are going to try it it should be as a last resort and if you do do a TEST first to see how it takes/looks..
