    Doesn't have to be inevitable though. Baldness can be a great look - check out Vin, Dwayne, Terry or indeed Hitman 47 (it helps to be ripped and look like a mean f*cker, or constantly suck lollipops). I agree it can also look not so good ...

    I'm more Barry from EastEnders or that guy from The Office US so it's definitely inevitable for me!

    I thoroughly researched it following help from Michael. Ive decided through lockdown and having a 0.5 grade shaved head to stick with it.

    Quick trim twice a week, and once I get beach body ready (haha still waiting for that!) then Id look like Jason Statham. Well maybe on a good day with a tail wind and a very blind panel of judges!

    Continue to be amazed how much colder my head is now though. I know they say about how much is lost from the head, but until I had a shaved head Id always taken it with a small pinch of salt.

    Agreed, you really do feel the cold with a shaved head. Id love to get it all permanently removed so I dont have to shave twice a week

    Id happily pay for 0.5 all over and never growing.

    Glad someone else appreciates the cold feeling.

    Hair transplant

    Thanks guys for the comments. Hopefully this is a resource if people are considering a transplant and happy to answer questions by pm.

    My issue wasnt vanity it was just that I hated my hairline and well worth the money. For those who have asked by pm I am happy to share the total was about 12.6 K for three mega sessions. I would never consider going abroad just not me although prices are considerably cheaper.

    Also from pms 4,560 grafts and 13,950 hairs transplanted. Apparently I was lucky in that my average hair / per graft ratio was on the high side

    Hair transplant

    So last update post from me. Nearly 10 months since my third session so probably final result

    Ralph Lauren? Some nice design details on that coat
    Oh and I needed a hair transplant about 35yrs ago so no going back now but good to see decent results!

    That’s a pretty amazing, and surprising result.

    Ive always thought that if I started to thin excessively I’d just get on with it and maybe just have a very close cut, but that result looks great. Hopefully I won’t have to consider it, but it opens up options.

    Thanks for pointing the update!

    Wow! That looks very natural.

    I have the opposite problem; have to get mine cut every 2.5 weeks otherwise I look like a cross between a 70s detective and Captain Caveman.

    I travelled to Istanbul in November, there were lots of people on the plane home with bright white perfect teeth or sore looking heads. I sat behind a guy who had a transplant procedure done and he was saying to the guy he was sat next to that the pain was horrendous, so much so that had he known he wouldn't have gone through with it. His scalp did look sore (they all did) but I'm not sure if it was just his personal pain threshold that was the issue or whether it hurt everyone equally!

    I can only go with my experience. No pain at all. The local was nippy and uncomfortable but had more pain with a paper cut and healed quickly.

    I suppose people react differently

    Not aimed at the OP, but Im glad Ive got good teeth and hair, Id be terrified of some bodged operation aimed at improving my appearance. I find the current male beauty trend - the whole macho tattoo, man bun and bright blue teeth look - very peculiar. A lot of it just looks a bit silly imho. And like a lot of things in modern life, it involves spending needlessly. All imho, ymmv, live and let live and all that

    And possibly better medical care? Yours looks amazing but there are some horror stories. Today, I was reading an article where a couple went abroad to get veneers and theyre now in agonising pain. But not sure what they actually expected for 4K, for both sets and the holiday!

    No issue at all with your viewpoint.

    All procedures are carried out by Doctors supported by technicians. I believe from what I have read its mostly technicians in Turkey who carry out the procedures. Also the clinics in Scotland are regulated by NHS quality standards through Health Improvement Scotland.

    Maybe I have been lucky but genuinely was virtually pain free

    Looks good and fair play too for posting the pics - makes a change from cars, knives and watches.
