I was planning to go through with an FUE procedure a couple months ago with Dr Rahal in Ottawa. I'm a pretty diffuse thinner with a receding hairline, so I was hoping to fill in the top, and also lower my temples just a bit. However, after meeting with Dr. Rahal, he informed me that if he filled in the top, I would probably lose as many hairs from shock-loss as the number he put in.
He could still lower my hairline, but it will still be thin, so I walked away. I really, really respected him for telling me the straight-up truth, as opposed to taking my $20,000 and risking my unhappiness.
However, I'd still like some opinions from others who may have similar hair, or a similar experience. Do you think a transplant of any kind is just off the table for me? Opinions are extremely appreciated!
