    I'm schedueled for may 2'nd to get it done, it's going to cost $6000 :eek3:. I've been doing my research for a long ass time and decided to go though with it, so I'm going to post before and after pics. It takes 6-10 months for the hair to grow in 100% so I'll keep it updated. If any of you balding brollys have ever though about it you can look at my results to judge.

    oh I'm sure they did. But it was going bald before I ever did a cycle anyways. My family has a history of it. I've been on rogain and propecia for a long time and it really helped, but the steroids were still making it fall out a little.


    Oh, btw I've been off for a few months now and dont plan on going back on.

    Oh, and I'm a really ugly bald guy, I tried it once and everyone said how terrible I looked. I have huge bushy black eyebrows and a very big round head :wtc: I'm a pretty good looking guy with hair though.

    In on this but i've read that you're only delaying the process. I've been thinking about it but i should need that many graphs.

    $6,000 :eek3::eek3:

    Well, I guess you can't put a price on happiness so best of luck man :bigthumb:
    I'll be honest, if I started going bald and there was a tried and true method to stop it/restore my hair for $6,000 I would probably do it also.
    I shaved my head once and it didn't look that great. I am Italian and have dark bushy eyebrows so it looked kinda strange.

    Both my dad and my grandfather on my moms side have balding, so I am sure I will experience it at some point. My dad started noticeably balding ~ 34 and my Grandpa was a~ 40.

    I am 22 so I hope I still have at least a good 10 years on me, but we'll see.

    Good luck with the procedure.. Can't wait to see before/afters.
    Do you just go in every few months for maintenance on it or what?

    +1 for just shaving it.

    What the hell do you and the misses do to afford having all the work done?

    Good for you! I would HATE to lose my hair and I have a bad feeling my head is actually a funny shape under all my hair. Some people just don't suit being bald. However, from the occasional pic I have seen of you, I always thought you were pretty young (definitely under 30).. is it really that bad that you need a transplant now? Pretty unlucky to be balding in your 20's

    Some dudes look good with a shaved head, others don't.
    I think that would decide if I got the treatment. Before I go bald I will shave it and seehow it looks. If all is good, then I am game.

    Looks good with a shaved head:

    Others, not so much.
