I don’t think I have much to offer regarding hair replacement surgery, except to say that I have friends who did it and now regret it. Maybe I’ve never seen a really good job, but those I have seen are immediately obvious and…frankly…pathetic.
You mention that people make judgements, and I agree. But I think the harshest judgements are reserved for the dreaded combovers or the hair transplant victims who just don’t look quite right.
It’s like looking at a wrinkled, gray-haired old broad with fake boobs and collagen lips. Your first thought is, “How pathetic. Just let it go, honey.”
And the thing is, society is much more forgiving of guys. I agree with most of the above posts…let it go, guy. Impress people with your physique, your brain, and your confidence. Who needs hair, anyway?
