Thanks for this gem of a site! I’m scheduling my first miniaturization with the Hair Club for Men. Two questions:
- What questions should I ask the physician when we meet?
- Have you heard anything from your colleagues in the hair transplant world re: Hair Club for Men’s experience and success in restoring hair?
Thanks for your time!
- First and foremost, you should educate yourself on hair transplant surgery and hair loss. Just as you have found this site, you can find tons of information on the rest of the web. Just double check sources and make sure the information is credible. You can also use NewHair.com for extensive medical information on hair transplantation and hair loss.
- With respect to the reputation / success of other medical groups, it would be unprofessional of me to comment (positive or negative) on the matter since it would obviously be a conflict of interest. We have many suggestions in this blog on how to qualify doctors and you should follow that advice.
You need to know what the mapping of your miniaturization shows and you should ask the doctor what he/she might predict will be the eventual loss of hair (distribution/pattern) and the rate at which you might bald. If you are using medications like Propecia, you should be able to compare the progress or reversal of the miniaturization over a time period of months.
