Thinking of a Hair Transplant Just in Hairline, Does This Look Right?

Ok so I actually have quite a thick head of hair. No hint of a bald spot or problems anywhere except for the actual hairline. One side has receded ( not to mention more then the other side ) & a friend who has had transplants says since they take from the back & implant in the front that it should be easy. Also why don't more celebrities have this done? why do they wear wigs like John Travolta if it's fixable with a transplant? That's what makes me suspicious of having it done.

Hair loss for those who have it and it will continue until you die.

Hair loss for those who have it  and it will continue until you die. It never stops. I have done celebrities that you do not realize have had surgery. You need to investigate both transplants and the Fleming-Mayer Flap. We do both and u need to see the adv/disadv of each.

You should get a consult with an actual doctor, not a sales person for a clinic. Try to get an honest opinion on your need for a transplant.

See a hair transplant specialist. Whether or not you are a candidate for work depends so much on your age, family history, balding pattern and expectations.
