    Default Questions to ask BEFORE a hair transplant #1 Dr. Lindsey

    Here's a video in which I go into some of the more common questions YOU should know, from YOUR doctor, before you sign up. Its an informal informational session that Wendy and I did this morning going over a bunch of the questions we get each week. We'll do another video or 2 for more questions in the coming month.



    This is by no means all inclusive--but ought to give most guys the questions, and our answers, they need to ask.

    Hey Dr. Lindsey, I have a question that I don't really know who to ask so I figured I'd make an account here and post it. I am a young male 22 years old who is seeing the effects of balding. I am curious, since FUE relocates hair to a bald spot, what would happen if you wax your head? If you wax the part of the head you expect balding to occur (obviously the risk here is you have to guess), doesn't that technically simulate "baldness" since the follicles are removed? As a result, you could then get the FUE immediately after. Just curious, I doubt this has ever been used in practice.

    Eagles...with all due respect...that sounds crazy. Wait til you need a transplant...then go to a reputable surgeon and if you are young...take your parents. You're less likely to do something foolish. That patch of hair in your donor region has to last a lifetime. Don't waste it in a 22year old crown prematurely.

    Sowrad,

    My colleague Dr. Feller and I disagree a little on the future of robotics..I think that currently we're at the "dumb phone" stage and in 10 years...robot FUE contraptions may well do everything better than the human hand and eye. He doesn't think it'll ever equal the human.

    BUT we both certainly agree that current robotic devices...on average...don't equal a skilled human. AND FUE is a challenge for skilled humans. Its simply unpredictable in that the stress applied to hair roots is tolerated variably by different hairs and different patients. I say that having done an FUE of limited size on my own son....but in general strip works better.

    Look at these 2 videos. I completely get that a lot of people want to avoid a linear scar. The fact is that most guys doing HT can't sew their way out of a dark closet...At a competent office though, a strip probably will yield a decent scar and excellent hair. Your problem will be finding those 50 offices out of the 2000 or so offices offering HT. And if you go to a really good office, statistically your scar will be 1-1.5mm wide and concealable with a half inch long haircut...and you'll get a better result at about half the cost of FUE. Do your research and make the decision that is right for you.

    THanks

    Dr. Lindsey
