My Hair Loss Story

Hair loss sucks. Plain and simple. Not to say it gets easier with age but being at your mid-twenties and having no hairline is just not fair. I know life ain't fair but damn it i am doing something about this one...

How has my hair loss affected me?

Everyday I wake up and look in the mirror, every gust of wind, every drop of sweat that that made it look worse..... You guys get the point! A mid twenty year old male having the Male Pattern Baldness of a forty year old just didn't sit well with me.

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

Too early to tell. I have only been on meds for about 6 months, I'll let you know...  I think it has stopped my loss for now!!!

Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?

You couldn't of asked for a more nice and professional staff, that actually cared about their patients. So far everything is smooth. Its only been a month since my hair transplant, so don't laugh at me.

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?

First before any RESEARCH everything, including meds, and especially a qualified Dr. that suits YOU.
too early for me to comment on meds or HT.

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

So far... I got to go see the mall of America, that was cool.

My general advice and suggestions.

Please research and take your time. If you are younger like me I know you want to rush into a hair transplant, trust me i know, but research at least a good year or two if you have to put a time limit on it. Honestly research it until you're at peace and are knowledgeable about your decision.
