Hello everyone. I have decided to make the plunge into getting a hair transplant. I have fine/thin blonde hair and am looking for the best possible doctor to do this procedure. Cost or distance isn’t an issue, I am located in Florida but would be willing to travel to find the best doctor for this procedure.

I’m also curious if guys think I can have a good outcome with my fine/thin hair?

here are some pics.

thanks in advance!

Yea I use to have the real self app myself, but to be honest most of the responses there are very generic. You will start to notice all the doctor reply’s are the same or at least very similar. I think they get ratings for replying a lot.

thinhairguy, 

I have blonde hair but not as thin as yours. Your welcomes to check my thread. How old are you and are you on any meds ?

I am 33 and have never taken any meds for hair loss. I have been looking into Dr Woong and Dr Diep. Any feedback on those two doctors?

Im just worried with my hair so thin that I might not get a full look Im looking for. Anyone know of any other threads with fine hair like mine?

Based on your pictures, if I were you deff give finasteride a go and see if that improves your crown and midscaple.

both doctors you mentioned you can’t go wrong with to be honest. Are you solely interested in fue or both fue and fut as options?

Not sure why this post was reported, but some good advice. Dr. Diep was my personal, and while I have dark hair and it’s more on the thicker side. I know a few blonde guys who had excellent results @JBlonde @E39 @SWdan and even @FUEblonde1985 even though he was skeptical, I thought it his hair looked amazing. I’d suggest reaching out to them for their unbiased opinions.

Dr. Wong has done some nice procedures on guys with fine hair. Check out the thread started by a patient who goes by the name Zaxter. I had an in-person consult with Dr. Wong myself a month ago. I'm interested in him because I have hair on the finer side and he seems to be able to achieve great coverage on fine-haired dudes. Really enjoyed my consult with him, he's an absolute beauty.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I prefer to go FUE because I want to be able to buzz the back of my head in the future after the procedure, but I would be open to FUT if the doctor thinks it would give me better results.

Take a look at another blonde member who had FUE with Dr. Hasson @Arminius

I didn't report it, but I'm taking a guess it was due to the lopez7 member who signed up today and makes one post about how we should go to another forum.

Blonds and redheads usually have a lower natural hair density that dark hair guys. The good news is that blond hair with a light skin tone usually doesn't need as much density from a hair transplant to get good looking results.

I would avoid Diep. Fullstop. I am not saying I would prefer H&W over Diep, I am saying I would prefer almost anybody to Diep. In your case with thin hair, I think he is an especially bad choice. That said, if you can afford H&W, they are arguably the best clinic in the world so I would go there against almost anybody else, especially if you are in North America already.

@thinhairguy your hair and hairloss seems very similar to another member @Rolandas you should check out his thread.

You definitely can achieve a great result. I’m very satisfied with my results from Dr. Diep. That being said, I would definitely try finasteride first. It could help immensely.

Dr. Wong is incredible. You should, at the minimum, do a virtual consult with him. He saved me from making a BIG mistake by explaining to me, in his professional opinion, why the plan proposed by Rahal was not good for me long-term. Dr. Wong also provided me with much better value and a great (so far 7 months) result. His service afterwards is outstanding as well. Very easy to get a hold of - gives you his personal number to text him with questions etc.

Blonde bearded bro here. Definitely give topical finasteride + minoxidil + microneedling a go for 6 months before trying a HT. It's way cheaper and could be a permanent solution.
