My Hair Loss Story
I've always had a high hairline which made me appear to have a large forehead. For the past 4 years, my hair has been slowly receding. It's receded about 1 inch in the hairline and about 2 inches in the temples. Thus, my already high hairline now looks even higher. So now I'm going to do something about it...
How has my hair loss affected me?
Due to my already high hairline, it's made my forehead look even bigger and disproportionate. Even though it's only receded an inch, it looks like much more... Thus, I appear to be balding as opposed to simply having a mature hairline.
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
FUT at True & Dorin.
I went from a clear Norwood 3 down to a Norwood 1 in less than two years. I now have the same hairline at age 30 that I had at age 20 and it looks great. It's given me a much more youthful appearance as well as a nice, solid frame to my face.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
Yes, I'm very happy with my expereince so far. It's restored the hairline of my youth and improved my overall appearance. Also, it's give me many more styling options with my hair.
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
FUT by True and Dorin.
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
It just looks a lot better now. I no longer have a widow's peak. I can comb my hair back if I wish. It looks good when I get out of the shower or after swimming. On windy days or while riding my bike, I don't have to worry about a large segment of my forehead being exposed and revealing my hair loss.
My general advice and suggestions.
It is essential to do a lot of research before taking the plunge. You must have realistic expectations, be aware of the risks, understand the anxiety caused by anticipation of your result and, most importantly, choose a quality physician.
Research involves going to several in person consultations, meeting plenty of HT patients in person, speaking to them on the phone and asking lots questions.
The online forums are essential too, but do not fixate on any single site as they all have different theories and philosophies and membership bases. You will find certain docs heavily promoted on some sites while never mentioned on others. This is why it's important for you to build relationships and get to know actual patients which can be done via email.
