Since seeing is believing...
I think the doctor who did Gosselin's transplant is the same one who runs Balding Blog. Many of the transplants pictured there look natural to me.

Why don't more men get hair transplants? I've heard they're very successful and I wouldn't imagine it would be any worse than wisdom teeth removal.
You can buy a decent looking fedora for $15, why spend thousands on surgery to protect your head from the sun, rain or bird droppings?

I think many men do believe that, that hats effectively cover up hair loss. Just as many women probably used to think padding 'fixes' small breasts. It's easy to think of situations where that can be disastrous, or at least obviously deceptive (e.g., indoors). Plus, big dressy hats on men usually look stupid, such as with tee shirts, and baseball caps are inherently childish off the field. I think plain caps are okay sometimes.

I have never known anyone who is so obsessed with what's on top of a man's head.

That's basically an ad hominem. I'm only obsessed with my own hair and don't normally pay much attention to other men's hair. I don't really care whether or not more guys get transplants. I'm just competitive (including debates) and strongly dislike dishonesty and self-destructive behavior, especially when I've been coming across it for ages.

I'd contend that slicing your scalp open dozens of times to stuff hair into it is more self-destructive than going bald.

If it doesn't involve spending too much or instead of more important things, going despite the objections of a spouse, or (unfairly, I think) being ridiculed by important acquaintances or the public; it can only do tangible, lasting harm if the result looks ugly or unnatural, which I contend doesn't happen much these days.

Because going bald doesn't bother me at all. I have never spent one second dwelling on it or thinking anything negative about it.

But, But women dont like it you say? I guess if you say so yet for some reason I attract more women as a middle aged balding guy than I did as a young man with a full head of hair.

That boggles my mind. You've never felt it was making you less attractive?

If that's an attempt at reasoning, it's terrible - > correlation/causation. I could play the same game - I was unattractive in my early teens and to my knowledge then had more female admirers than I do now. I never said women won't date balding guys, but virtually all of them would be more interested in the version of the man with a full head of hair.

No it never has. It boggles my mind that something so common and genetically programmed causes such misery for so many men.

It's not reasoning, it's simply my experience.
