I would never let someone drill holes in my head because of vanity or low self esteem.

I worked with a guy who started going bald in his 20's. He went for one of the "hair transplant" procedures...It was funny as hell. You could see all the little holes in his head, where they transplanted the hair...everyone called him "Barbie-doll head"...because it did indeed look like a doll's head...holes in the scalp with hair growing out of them...all in nice neat rows...
He never finished the treatments...said it hurt too much, and he got too much ridicule over it...Last time I saw him, all the transplanted hair had died off, and he was bald as a cueball again.

That's what I did. I have a Matt Lauer thing going on now. The chicks seem to dig it :D

I'm looking forward to doing that soon. I'd be there already if my wife didn't object.

Go to Bosley. They do each hair one at a time I beileve. Can't tell the difference. However I think it costs like $5000 - $10,000.

Have you tried using rogain? It's pretty cheap nowadays. Actually just buy %5 monoxadil. Same thing and way cheaper. And even if it doesn't regrow it, it can at least keep the hair that is there and keep it healthy and thicker.
