plus does anybody really know if and when this ever happens...
what will the costs be when it first comes out?
all this medical research isn't free

so even after it finally becomes available...cloning and stem cell hair procedures could be very expensive for several years.....sure it may be possible to grow unlimited amounts of donor hair "one day".....but it's not going to be like it's dirt cheap...at least not in the beginning and it will still probably involve surgery and just the surgery in and of itself can be pretty pricey.

i am hopeful that new technology enables big leaps in hair transplantation..
guys in their twenties & early thrirties may be able to wait it out.....
but for many the waiting game is taking too long and we gotta take the leap now.

there are still so many unknowns about cloning and stem cell in regard to hair
tranplants that I feel it's not at all irresponsible for folks to be still be advocating FUT procedures
it's a proven successful procedure

I really have high hopes in Histogen which might be available within 3 to 5 years but who knows.
As for cloning as to take one graft and clone it and have unlimited supply in one session i think we still need along time to see this happening.
As for the stemcel procedure it is available now and it promises at least 80-85% re-growth at the donor area, i don't think it is expensive but the problem is that you can't have many grafts in one session since the maximum is 2000 and then you have to wait 9 months between sessions.
