Can Men Really Bald Gracefully?
I see many men that are depressed to the point of taking medication or even considering taking their lives because they are balding. Once the “big man on campus”, now they are looking more like their dad while their non-balding friends remain with a youthful appearance. I remember going into clubs in my late twenties and thinking to myself I looked like everyone’s dad. I am not sure if anyone else had this thought, but it did not matter because I was convinced it was true, because my hair was thinning.

Finally after several years of thinking about my receding hairline at age 38, I had a hair transplant. This turned out to be a great decision. I looked much younger after the hair grew in providing a frame for my face. I have also seen the balding process breakup marriages when the husband’s self-esteem has plummeted; so low he always accuses his spouse of cheating or starts to cheat himself to gain conformation from other seemingly attractive women that he is still desirable.
Several patients mention their performance at work is suffering because they feel their clients want a more youthful person to handle their business. I have heard this countless times from men of all walks of life. Some people feel intimidated by their coworkers
with hair, creating a non-healthy work atmosphere. Some believe men in power always have hair. Look at all the presidents except Ford. Would Barrack have been elected the president sporting a shaved head? I would like to think so, but I cannot prove that.
The overwhelming theme is frustration leading to overall dissatisfaction with your own appearance. The frustration stems from the fact for the most part baling it is out of control, and is governed by our genetic makeup. I always felt cheated that my hair was receding and most of my friends were not. As you will see, you can have some control over what is going to take place and there are several good options you can utilize to improve on your looks.
This is very serious sensitive stuff!
Saying to your husband/significant other “honey, you look great” usually will not make these feelings go away. This is a perfect thing to say especially if you mean it. How you proceed from here is very important. The options for slowing the process or surgically improving your appearance are:
