  1. What's wrong with the truth? It's nothing to be ashamed of.
  2. 1) Hair systems don't require surgery. 2) Hair systems don't produce permanent scars. 3) Hair systems don't require long waiting periods for results. 4) Not everyone is a good candidate for a hair transplant, but nearly everyone can wear a hair system. 5) Hair transplant results can be unpredictable. 6) Hair systems aren't permanent -- if you don't like the results, you can give up wearing them or change them any time you like. 7) Hair loss is progressive; hair systems can keep up with ongoing hair loss easier than hair transplants can.
  3. And, as I thoroughly documented there, the conspiracy theory about RCA "hiding" its television technology to sell more radios is completely erroneous.
  4. Dr. Glenn Waldman in Thousand Oaks does hair transplantation, but I have no idea what his work is like: (link removed by moderator)
  5. I'm no expert, but looking at your "before" pictures, I'd have thought you needed considerably more than 1,800 grafts to achieve a satisfactory result in a single pass. Were you led to believe otherwise?
  6. He doesn't have enough native hair coverage left for concealer to be that effective. It's a hairpiece:
  7. What exactly is the evolutionary reason behind male baldness? What exactly is the evolutionary reason behind male baldness? It happened to me about 10 years ago and its advantages are not immediately apparent. | Notes and Queries | guardian.co.uk
  8. Lots of men worry about losing their hair. But instead of fretting about their beauty, it might make sense for them to count their blessings — because, by rights, bald men should probably be extinct by now. So why aren't they? New Scientist has taken at look a that particularly interesting question in a wonderful feature, that tries to get to the bottom of why baldness should still be so widespread amongst the males of our species. Why Haven't Bald Men Gone Extinct?
  9. I'd say it holds even more water, since thousands and thousands of years ago both reproduction and death typically occurred at significantly earlier ages, before one generally sees the onset of MPB.
  10. I don't think #1 is very plausible, as MPB is something that generally occurs after the usual age of reproduction and therefore doesn't really drive evolutionary selection.
  11. Eh? Dr. Charles said "I agree that it is likely that you will experience regrowth in the donor area."
  12. So what? The fact that one government agency did something reprehensible 40+ years ago means that all current government agencies are corrupt?
  13. But of course, the Tuskegee experiment had nothing to do with the FDA.
  14. A lot of people simply don't realize that there is a big difference between practitioners and that research is warranted. Being famous doesn't necessarily make one smarter or more knowledgeable.
