I recently though it would be a good idea to write down my top 10 rules regarding hair transplants.

So, in no particular order, here are my 10 Commandments Of Hair Restoration Surgery

1. You will always want more hair
2. You will never have enough hair
3. You will always consider “another” procedure
4. We can only predict so much in medicine and there will always be the 1/10 of 1% that don’t work out the way every other case does
5. There is no such thing as a “scarless” hair transplant
6. FUE is not scarless
7. This procedure comes down to “supply versus demand”. Donor area versus balding area. Expectations must be managed accordingly.
8. Always create a higher hairline with greater density than a lower hairline with lower density.
9. In all patients but in younger patients especially, imagine the end point of hair loss over time and create the complete treatment plan over many years accordingly.
10. Rarely if ever perform a hair transplant on someone under the age of 20.
