I: I agree, as long as you have an otherwise healthy scalp with good circulation and no growths or significant sun damage that would make the grafts not "take". It is also important to have a good consultation to determine your options, to discuss your goals, and pricing.

My hair comes out in the shower and when I comb it. Falls out mostly on top. But also sides. My hair is coarse. Could I be going bald?

Hair falling out: Need more information such as is your father bald? If so when did it start with him. Make a family tree and see who got bald and at what age. Some men become bald very early and this runs in family. Assuming your father is not bald and none of his make relatives are bald u are prob OK. This assumes your father is you genetic father of course. If it does not run in your family then check with Dr.
