I am not quite ready for a hair transplant but I have thought about it a bit. I still have a lot of hair although I am definitely balding but would want to hold on as long as possible before having a hair transplant. The way I see it, the longer I wait, the better the procedures become!

It's not definite I would even do it, but something that sprang to mind is that if I had a transplant now then it would cover my temples that have receeded and then I would have all my "normal" hair that is already there. However, surely that normal hair will continue to be lost over time and so I will then be left with transplanted hair on my temples and then baldness behind. Is this right?! Or does the process somehow stop existing hair from then falling out or would I effectively need a SECOND hair transplant later on?!

Hey Steve,

I'm no expert but my father has had the procedure done, and he was told that unfortunately, all hair can eventually be lost. The procedure is merely "postponing" full baldness and helps you avoid going bald just in one area.

However, don't despair There are SO many other treatments you can combine with hair transplants (surgery being one of the most dramatic ones) so ask your GP about ointments / shampoo to help prevent further hair loss IN COMBINATION with the surgery My dad is nearing 50 and used to be almost half bald, now he is regaining hair in the front, so it DOES work! He's not even that good at remembering to use the treatment regularly
