  • Steroids (like the ones he took for the unexpected swelling/inflammation after the surgery) often cause mood changes, including depressive symptoms. That's likely a large part of why he had such a dark period right after the surgery, and why it resolved so quickly.

  • Between the tattooing, the surgery, and the medication described here you're talking thousands if not tens of thousands.

    saltyninjasaltyninjaپیش 2 روز
    • Actually, for the medication (Finasteride) and the Scalp Micro-Pigmentation it isn't as much as you might think. Here in the UK, a years supply of Finasteride is around £125 which is $167. The SMP treatment costs £1650 which is $2215. For most, if you start treatment as soon as you notice your hair thinning these two treatments is all that will be needed.

      AdamT19931AdamT19931پیش 3 ساعت
  • The non- transplanted hair is still going to thin, he’s going to have to continue to do this multiple times. Not everyone can afford this, plus he will have to start using finasteride, which could have potential life altering side effects over long periods of time. Just shave it, or get it cut with whatever it is you have left and move on.

  • While you were healing and your poor face was so swollen, I'm wondering if you were on Prednisone or some other steroid? They can MESS with your mood and emotions terribly. I have to take prednisone for autoimmune issues sometimes and it makes me a hungry, crabby, emotional mess.

  • ok, but how much does this cost? if it's tens of thousands of dollarinos, it's not really affordable...

    VV VBVV VBپیش 2 روز
    • it's really not affordable for most people including myself. Although the cost really depends on a lot of factors but it's mainly the number of hair grafts and the surgeon you choose. If you really want an affordable option and also want great results,consider getting it done in other countries outside of the US. A lot of great options out there. Always take consultation and research your options before finalizing.

  • I see a lot of negative comments about your hair cut, which I feel is weird considering this is a video about your journey with hair insecurity. I think the most important thing is that you gained confidence through this journey, and it really shows. It doesn't actually matter how your hair is styled..its how you FEEL. And now, your hair grows back- You can try all these different hair cuts and styles!! I think you looked great, pre haircut and post. Because YOU feel better, and that makes you glow! Men could use more positive role models like you!

  • Finastride is fcking poison . It’s banned in most countries for irreversible side effects. If you are one of the 2% who get the hormones messed up there is no coming back.

    GammaGGammaGپیش 3 روز
    • @Sami Nelson exactly same situation. Bad stomach (IBS) due to antibiotics. Started losing hair at 27 , took hair supplements, creams and finastride (for 7mos) felt the symptoms and stopped . Took 2years for hormones to normalize .

      GammaGGammaGپیش روز
    • Oh wow I didn’t know that, I’m not surprised though. I’m all for modern medicine but sometimes the side effects are worse than what they’re fixing. Even medically necessary antibiotics gave me acid reflux that still hasn’t gone away. As someone who’s lost like 40% of their hair due to stress I can definitely understand the desire to take something to fix it but I just can’t see the risk being worth it. Good for Zach that he’s fine and happy though.
