Rightly skeptical. In most cases, they won't create a virtual full head of hair. (Maybe the percentage increases if the transplant is paired with Toppik or something.) But most men will look better. If some men have an all-or-nothing mindset, that's self-defeating, like women who ignore their fitness because they can't have Barbie bodies.

Also, I think some men won't get hair transplants because it's like admitting defeat over money they've spent on treatments (medication and snake-oil stuff).

Generally men are not beauty concious, they takes it lightly, they like the natural hairs but if the person facing the baldness problem and want to look smart then he definitely go for the hair transplant and this is right also because if someone wants to go for the hair transplant for looks smart then the best solution for those is hair transplant in Indore.

As if that wasn't enough reason for why hair transplants for men are unpopular, the other is that young and old men alike are waking up to how pointless it is to obsess over their hair.

Yeah that.

I personally like the way I look with a shaved head. I don't have that "classical" head shape but it feels clean and easy to maintain. I don't completely shave it bald, just leave some stubble with a shaver.

You all would be so surprised at the number of ladies who like bald men or shaved heads.
I personally think it is an attractive trait. My husband shaves his head because he is balding.
I don't like the look of transplants... you can almost always tell.

Maybe not 'beauty' conscious, but a lot of guys are very self-conscious about going bald. A balding head makes you look a lot older than your actual age. Most just accept it because (for some) the alternatives are either not very realistic looking or unaffordable. The topical application that begins with an R actually kinda works but it is expensive, and the hair growth is thinner than your natural hair. You also have to keep using it forever or you will probably lose whatever hair it grew. Most wigs for men look ridiculous, and the custom glue-ons require costly maintenance. The plugs cost a bundle, and how good they look depend on the skills of the surgeon. One option that some guys choose to pull a Vin Diesel and shave the whole thing off, which also requires a lot of maintenance but you can buy a trimmer and shave it fresh every day yourself at home.

I'd like to know why? Its difficult for you to fathom why a man might want to make himself more attractive to women, or to keep himself looking good if he does a job like sales...

I find it interesting that women will criticize men who do a few things to improve their appearance, when women spend countless billions of dollars every year on cosmetics, hair products, fake hair and a bunch of other stuff for exactly the same reason. Even so, I wouldn't disrespect any woman who spends a lot of money on her makeup and wigs and stuff. Many women do look better when they use these things. And looking good is a part of feeling good. You find balding men attractive, but a lot of women say that they don't. I think that you should give the hair plugs a chance. You might fall in love with them.

That isn't natural either, but people do it, because they know (or believe) that it looks better. How are hair plugs different from that?
because straight teeth look natural when they are done and dont have plug marks on the top of their head.
i never had braces and my teeth are perfectly straight.

I'm relatively young and not going bald yet, but as soon as I start to lose hair, I'll be at the surgeons office so fast.

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.
I am going to be 50 this year and have a full head of hair. So that is my excuse.
