    Surgery For Hair Loss : A Scam?

    I noticed my hair is getting thinner, and I don't have the M shaped hairline that I had a few years ago. I was looking at some hair restoration doctors, even thinking of going to Bosley in California, there is also supposed to be a "reputable" one in Australia by the name of Dr. . Is hair loss surgery legitimate? Or is it a painful way for someone to take your money? There are a lot of lifelike toupees out there too and it seems like a less painful and expensive way to hide hair loss. I heard wore one because he had patchy hair loss.

    One of my friends' father did the plug/chia head surgery. He looked like a doll with hair plug for 6 months..but then it actually looked good.
    First they punch holes in ur thinning area.....(local anesth)
    They take the hair from the back of ur head..or pubic area if u wish and implant it in the holes. Then they water it and Presto! Ur got chia head!

    No but seriously that is the only surgery that I am aware of that actually works....might be wrong
    Everyday I strive to be the person my dog thinks I am.

    but remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.

    You can always be proactive!

    You can look in the mirror (and in your best Eric Cartman impersonation) be like "Screw you hairs, I'm going home!"

    Shave it off or buzz cut it !

    Control your Coiffure! Fear no Follicles! (ok I'm done)

    You get up there and show those hairs who's boss!

    Before you get cut on - research. Look at your mother's brother's and your father to see their hair loss. There are ages where it hits. Some drop hair in their 20's - others get bald spots in the their 40-50's. Each has a different genetic cause - oh and by the way - we are not suppose to give medical advice per the VMD TOS or ask for it.

    Hi George,

    Yes hair loss surgery is legitimate. Though itís hard to find good surgery doctors. There are very few who are qualified to do the procedure, and even less that are truly good at it. For a patient who is investing thousands of dollars, it is of utmost importance to know that you are getting top quality service from the doctor you choose. Nothing would be more heartbreaking than spending all that money and receiving low quality results.

    Get referrals from previous patients or if you did not get any referral look up "Dr.Cole Forhair clinic" you can google their website, where they have mastered this art. A successful surgery can help you regain your confidence and feel & look young again.
