Is hair transplant surgery an allowable medical expense?

If your reasoning isn't supported by a contributing medical condition which requires such a procedure, the IRS generally will not permit the deduction for the expense." You may not deduct medical expenses for cosmetic surgery; specifically, procedures undergone with the intention to merely enhance your appearance.
