Default Today was a bit embarrassing

Hi All

I was ay work today, in a middle of a busy office, when a girl said to me " Your hair looks different, your hair line is better, have you had some of those implants"

Just as I could feel myslef getting hot a sweaty and a little bit red, someone called for me in the next offfice and I got away with it. Later when I regained my composure I went back to tell her that I have been on Propecia and Minoxidil for the last year.

It was actually the result of my HT coming through. Itshould of been a great moment in theory, but it made me feel uneasy and I was shaking like mad.

I thought I would share that with everyone.

well she did say it "looked better"

so it's hard to tell from here if it was a backhanded compliment or
mean-spirited.

i would probably just say "hey thanks...I like the way it looks as well".

it's amazing that women that use all kinds of disguises, paints, gloss, cosmetic surgeries, ect to cover or change their face from the way it naturally looks are sometimes the very first to point out if a guy does something to enhance his look wth something like a hair transplant

I think you guys are way over thinking this one. It doesn't sound at all like the girl meant it to be hurtful. She was actually trying to give a compliment. We are just so paranoid about hair loss, HT's, etc. The way she put it sounded like it wasn't a big deal to her.

At some point in time, HT's will become more of the norm and socially acceptable and a comment like this won't be the anomaly.

Id take it as a compliment, you've had a positive confirmation that your hair is looking better.

I dropped by my office today after having a 4300 graft surgery 3 days ago. wore sunglasses but no hat. Basically I just decided "F-it" I dont really care what people think because I am on the road to looking better. Yeah i sort of look like hell now, but doesn't a butterfly start as caterpillar? One wise-guy made some smart remark and acting dead serious I said "wow dude you're really going to make fun of someone with a brain tumor"? I let him squirm a few moments, then I laughed and said "ah you idiot I don't have a brain tumor I had a hair transplant". Once the initial shock wears off people go back to their own little world with their own worries/insecurities and have better things to do than worry about someone else's scalp.

It's funny how people deem it ok to insult people about hairloss in public...yet saying people gained weight is taboo...I only hope one day this is reversed!

Buzz2,

I was wondering, why didn't you just answer saying 'yes I have'. This was just one individual but there'll many others who'll ask you the same question. So why not just accept the fact and be open about it? Anyways, things will only get better now and you should be upbeat that people are noticing the difference.

Cheers!

I think it is positive Buzz and compliment to Dr Saifi work if she thinks you look better.

Yea, I can see how someone noticing that you had a HT would make you nervous but judging by your photos your HT looks really natural. I would take it as a compliment.
