    And remember, if the transplant surgeon tells you the transplanted hair will never fall out, he's lying.

    This is not entirely true. Transplanted hair can eventually fall out due to aging or genetics, but in most cases the majority of transplanted hair can last a lifetime, depending on your genetics and if the hair transplanted was taken from the more "safe" area of the donor zone.

    No it IS true. Because if the surgeon tells you that it will never fall out, how does he know you won't get senescent alopecia? If he doesn't have a crystal ball, he is lying to you from the get go. And that is not a doctor you should let touch your head.

    Transplanted hairs DEFINITELY can fall out and some will start to miniaturize just like the native hair -both happened to me- but not all will. I think this is a fact that most, if not all doctors lie about and try to hide.

    My personal experience of more than fifty years (I started losing my hair when I hit puberty), is my hair loss has been relentless. My transplants, helped by custom made rogaine (commercial rogaine was not yet available) looked OK for about two years, but after two years things started downhill again and continued--in fits and start--to this day.

    In my opinion, you should always research and consider the below things before going to a hair transplant surgery.

    1. Surgery Procedure

    Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantations (FUT). I can not explain you these terms but i am sure, if you will dig out on the internet you will find a great information about these procedures, so always consider your option.

    2. HAIR AND SKIN TYPE, INCLUDING ETHNICITY

    3. Cost of the Surgery.

    4. Expertise and work experience of the surgeon

    5. Complication and risk of hair transplants- Consult with the doctor and the previous patient that already undergo hair transplant surgery.

    6. Needed preparations and medical care - Depending on your preferred procedure of having a hair transplant, there are precautions and things you may need to avoid before, during, and after the operation.

    7. The clinic where surgery will take place.

    So, Before undergoing Hair Transplants, here are the top 7 things you should consider first..
