Bald Class: Bald Class 5 Email Me

On April 20, 2007, I completed my 5th and final hair transplant with Dr. Charles. I was virtually bald when I started, so I knew I needed extensive work and the experience over the last 3 1/2 years has been very positive. Dr. Charles surgery team is very professional and genuinely concerned about your welfare, which makes the process very enjoyable. I have likely had 10,000+ grafts and the difference in my appearance is profound.

I strongly recommend that anyone who is considering a hair transplant, needs to talk to Dr. Glenn Charles before making such an important decision.

Non-Surgical Treatments:

Regular of use of Rogaine on a daily basis.

My Hair Loss Story

I had hereditary issues with male pattern baldness, which began in my mid-twenties.

Over the years, I had many conversations with various doctors about potential "solutions", including hairpieces, weaves, hair-plugs and scalp reduction techniques. None of these ideas were acceptable, so I tried using Propecia to see if I might be one of the few who had a positive experience. Unfortunately, I was not able to grow more than peach fuzz, so I discontinued taking the prescription.

In October 2003, I read about "follicular unit transplantation" in a Wall Street Journal article and was genuinely excited as I appeared to be a natural candidate for this type of procedure. I had very thick hair on the back of my head and around my ears, but had no discernible hair line and limited hair on top of my head.

The next time I was in for a haircut, I spoke with my barber about this surgery and he told me I would be an excellent candidate. He recommended Dr. Glenn Charles of Boca Raton in November of 2003. In life, you meet certain people who have a profound impact and Dr. Charles fills that bill in a very positive way. After seeing so many other people over the years who were disappointing, Dr. Charles was informative, candid and explained in detail what I could realistically expect from the process. He listened to my perspective and we had a frank conversation about mutually developing a long-term solution. I became a patient of Dr. Charles for the first time in late December 2003 and consider it to be a very positive, life-changing event.

How has my hair loss affected me?

Hair loss made me look older and did impact how people perceive me. In a society that favors youthful appearances, it can be challenging both personally and professionally.

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

Follicular unit hair transplant surgery only

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

I am very, very happy with the results of my five hair transplant surgeries with Dr. Glenn Charles

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?

Follicular unit hair transplant surgery is the only solution today. All other solutions do not compare favorably

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

It gives you a sense of confidence. When people are speaking with you, they tend to look you in the eye instead of looking at your bald head.

My general advice and suggestions.

I would strongly suggest that anyone who is looking for hair solutions needs to have a consultation session with Dr. Glenn Charles. He made a material difference in my life and can do the same for others
