Booked a hair transplant for September - anybody done one? Allow turkey - don’t like the idea of being that far away if something goes wrong.

Turn 30 in a few months. Been steadily getting thinner on top for the last 3/4 years and I tried the 0 all over during Covid and I don’t like it. Found a good clinic here in NYC, which is run by the doctor who co authored one of the first research papers on the FUE technique.
I know that it’s a bit of an embarrassing subject but I’m pleased to be able to do something about it.
Just wondered whether anybody here has been through the procedure and could share any advice

Have you ever seen a hair transplant that looks good?

Not that I'm a staunch defender of hair transplants but there are some you don't really think about that have an effect on the way you view that person - Jurgen Klopp and Damon Albarn are two that come to mind. Not sure I'd get one though.

I reckon they're pretty good these days aren't they? David Silva's looks impressive.

Is it $$$ in NY?

I know two guys that have had transplants. One of them paid £££’s and got it done on Harley street and it looks amazing. Other guy got it done in Europe somewhere on the cheap and its dreadful, he looked better before he had it done.
I don’t think it’s embarrassing at all. I’d probably have one if I was turning into a baldy.

My hairline is receding a bit in the corners. It's otherwise really thick, so just a bit annoying really. I probably need to keep it a bit shorter and avoid the Bobby Charlton look.

Mate of mine had his done in turkey. Came out really good in the end. Looked fucking weird to start with - your scalp where the hairs are transplanted in gets quite scabby/gnarly. Fine after a few weeks though

Quite a few people, I have coarse curly hair so, people who have had decent ones are Andros Townsend, Lewis Hamilton (who denies it), Jamie Fox, Tyga, Tory Lanez. Yep, Elon’s is very good. A load of celebs have had them.

Maybe they’re not for everyone, but the technology they use is quite advanced now and I’m happy to give it a shot if it gives me hair for another 10 years.

It is quite expensive out here, but I’d rather know I’m getting a decent doctor and be a 20 minute cab ride away from the clinic if I ever need to go back for follow ups.

colleague has had it done, looks good, didn't meet him before had it done though and found out from someone else, and wouldn't know otherwise. cosmetic surgery is pretty common with both men and women in Brazil,

Yeah the Tory Lanez comeback was epic. Go for it man, nothing to be embarrassed about in these times.

Are you left with a scar at the back of your head where they take it from?
