My Hair Loss Story

I am 36 and hair loss started 15 years back

How has my hair loss affected me?

Yes a signal about you are loosing hairs, when i look at the mirror and photographs. Hair transplant  came into my mind in early 2002 and was able to get some cd's and brochures from leading hair transplant clinic in US at that time.

It took almost 8 years to finally  decide on a clinic and surgeon who can perform my HT

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

Finax and Minoxidil i suppose is working. couldn't see any visible difference though.

 Almost 10 years back i was on finasteride and minoxidil for  two years and then discontinued beacuse i was worried of side effects.Am back on finasteride and minoxidil from past2.5 years

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

Yes i  had a great experience with the HT clinic and the surgeon i have choosen. In a nut shell i can tell that it was professional approach with a personal touch.

Dr Radha Rani is trained under Dr Pathomvanich's and she has a great respect to him. All my initial consultation was through email and phone call.  I was aiming for a mega session and unfortunately my donor area didn't had the enough density to achieve that, however i am happy for what i have got.I did fly back on the third day after the HT and was able to remove the 13 retention sutures placed over the absorbable sutures on the 5th day.

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?

Don't get carried away by all the advertisments which dosen't have a scientific/research proof.

At present use only FDA approved hairloss drugs

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

 I will be happy soon when i see my transplants growing. I am possitive.

My general advice and suggestions.

Do proper reasearch,  Forums will be of great help , Talk to the people who have undergone HT,  Talk to doctor, Understand the pros and cons of HT. Dont think HT as a one stop shop based on your age and level of baldness. Build a faith in the surgeon and clinic and then just-do-it
