Hairloss and Banking Code

More men are talking about how losing their hair hit their confidence and are doing something about it in the form of transplants. But what results can you expect from surgery?

The idea of getting a hair transplant used to be something men were embarrassed to talk about but there's been a big shift in attitudes.

You and Yours was contacted by a mother prepared to stump that sort of money up to help her son get a transplant after seeing him lose his confidence. We explore what options are available and find out what you can expect for your money.
