    I have consulted with Bosley, and Rahal. One said no, one said yes.

    rahal is a reputable surgeon and bosley just wants your money.

    you are not a candidate for a hair transplant!

    currently on any treatments? looks salvageable

    You are correct. Yes, I'm taking finasteride. Min gives me heart issues unfortunately.

    Rahal said I was a shock loss risk.

    Could you explain why I'm not a transplant candidate? Beyond the shock loss risk I mean.

    Because you have no obvious balding areas or receding hair line. You have diffused thinning at best. In other words, where exactly would you transplant hair?

    Fair enough. It's that it is diffuse and you can see through it when its dry. I wanted to get more density, and without saying it specifically, Rahal's office was concerned that I would at best end up where I was (killing the hair that is already there).
