    Default Any hope for a hair transplant? ?

    Hey guys,

    Been on and off this forum for years now, I've just turned 27 and my hair loss is so severe now :/ I started losing it at 20-21 years old, which as you can imagine was very difficult to come to terms with. Back then I was already dealing with some pretty horrific things that my family went through, so hair loss on top of that was a real soul destroyer and I suffered greatly for quite a few years. I'm at the point now where I have to either shave it off and accept it, or get a hair transplant for something to frame my face. Itís not a nice situation to be in, I still feel far too young to be fully bald, it will age me significantly and will affect my confidence unless I can fully accept it and be happy bald.

    I wonít touch propecia and have been using minoxidil for years and itís not really doing anything anymore, I think it helped to slow down my mpb for a while. I am well aware of hair transplants, the procedure, the expectations etc. I went to a reputable clinic recently who reckoned I had about 4,500 grafts worth of donor hair. They were reluctant to operate due to my age and said that they would only be willing to transplant 1,500 grafts for a frontal lock to frame my face until seeing how far my hair loss progressed in the future. However, the way I look at it is this; I am a diffuse thinner, you can see exactly where my hair loss is going to end at a norwood 5-6. I could use those 4,500 grafts for a semi decent result and possibly fill out the rest with body hair. I have a lot of chest and beard hair, the chest hair is even quite thick and grows pretty long!! Iím also aware that going down the HT route is a long, expensive and potentially risky. Itís a really tough to decision to come to so I was just hoping to get some opinions/advice on this forum from those more experienced than me who have gone down this route. Itís also worth mentioning that I canít really afford prices in UK so I would be considering going to a reputable clinic in somewhere like Turkey.

    I am really tired of hair loss affecting me so badly and I just want to move on with my life one way or another. Iíve attached some pictures for you to look at my donor hair and density. Look forward to hearing from some of you.

    Thank you!
