    Default question about hair transplants...does it really work?

    I am losing my hair, I tried Rogaine and it didn't work. I am now thinking about doing hair transplants. I keep getting info from Bosley and Hair Club for Men, does anyone have advice on whether one company is better than another? I live in the California Bay Area. Also, I was wondering what the success rate for transplants is.

    Thanks for the info,

    It really depends on the type of hair loss, if you are a diffuse thinner it is probably not the best idea to get a HT. It is also good to take propecia for at least a year to see if you can tolerate it and to stabilize your hair loss. Before taking the plunge try to get as many opinions as possible and it would be wise to consult with some of the IAHRS doctors since they are all top notch.

    Good Luck

    It works but it won't give you the same thickness or fullness you had with the original hair or anything close to it UNLESS you have a very small bald area. Men with small bald areas and good donor hair density can expect very good results though -assuming they get their HTs done by good doctors. I think even 30% of the original density is better than nothing.
    Word of advice, STAY THE F**K AWAY FROM BOSLEY. These guys spend millions of $$ on advertising and unfortunately a lot of men fall for their ads. I was one of those men but that was a long time ago when I didnt know better.

    Again, the fullness from an HT is nowhere near the fullness you had with your original hair. This is a fact a lot of men seem to overlook. Many doctors use misleading "before and after" pics, so you have to be careful.
    Also, another scary possibility- your transplanted hair might end up falling out...PERMANENTLY. It's supposedly a rare thing but it is a possibility and the vast majority of doctors WONT mention it to you. I found out the hard way.
