Not to be rude but I can’t help but ask, before i ask a more detailed question; why Dr. Farjo, a contributing writer appears to be having serious balding problem.
Look at this another way — should a plastic surgeon make a statement by not having a boob job or a face lift? My former associate, Dr. Robert Bernstein, was asked about his balding on national TV (he has a class 6/7 balding pattern) and simply put, his hair loss does not bother him. Like Dr. Bernstein, there are many men who look handsome with a short haircut and some advanced balding pattern. Decisions on having a hair transplant reflect upon personal choices. I’ve written about this before here and here (and probably elsewhere).
I know a man with a broken nose who never had it fixed. He came to see me for a hair transplant and he said his nose was not a priority for him and the cost of a repair exceeded his budget. He obviously felt different about his hair. As to the cause, I am sure Dr. Farjo’s balding reflects genetic pattern balding like most men.
