Age: 42 | Bald Class: Email Me
Dr. John Diep and his staff in Los Gatos, California (San Francisco Bay Area)
I had him concentrate on my crown area since to me, this affected my appearance the most.
I used Rogaine starting at 24 yrs old until I was 30. I quit completely 2 years ago because I kept losing hair, and it was such a pain to keep using twice daily. I had to up my dosage to get results, and I just wasn't going to do that.
I had many opportunities to take Propecia, but was too scared of its side effects, so I never turned in my script to the pharmacy. I'm so glad I didn't because HT surgery makes so much more sense.

How has my hair loss affected me?
Self-confidence, appearance, and I look 5 years older than I am
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
Rogaine initially, but it tapers off unless you increase dosage, and I wasn't about to sleep with a drenched head every night.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
Yes, and the results are pending as this is my 2nd week post-op.
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
Rogaine at first, but then HT. I wanted to wait till my balding was close to it's peak.
