For aging men, going bald can be a big fear. Losing your hair is always a huge stigma, especially at a young age as many others still have their lush locks.

To combat this stigma, there is a group of young people on TikTok who have shared their stories about hair transplants and the benefits they have had for their mental health. GQ recently spoke with Kegs, a 25-year-old Irishman who, after trying various methods to preserve his hair, decided to have a hair transplant. “It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I never imagined how much confidence this whole trip would give me.”

Many other men not only advocate for hair transplantation, but also offer information on how to do it safely. For example, one account recommended against seeing a “technician” because while transplants from these people may be cheaper, you never know who they are or how skilled they are.
