On 22nd of February I received a Hair Transplant by Doc. Pathomvanich in Bangkok, Thailand with a total hair count of 4920 Hairs and 2582 Grafts.
533 Single Hairs
1760 2 Hairs
289 3 Hairs
It equated to about 40cm per cc. Hopefully its enough density, I believe it will be. If not, I can always go back again.
Cost was around $6500 for procedure.
My Hotel and Flights and Spending money $2000.
Total expenses to Thailand around $8500.
I got a hair quote in NYC for about 6k, however I really had a good feeling about Dr. Path, he just seems very honest and ethical, and indeed he has lived up to my description of him
Thanks Dr. Path!
Starting on Nov.23, 2009 1.25MG Finasteride/Day 3 months prior to transplant.
Doctor who prescribed said he saw the thinning starting to develop.
I shed for first 2 months quite a bit, but not too noticeable. Shedding has now since stopped, even after hair transplant.
My Hair Loss Story
Since 15-16, Always had high temples, always wore long hair to cover.
I wanted different hair style someday so I decided to have something done about it.
Although very receded, it continued to stay about the same for the last ten years, so I took Finasteride 1.25mg every day as precaution 3 months prior to hair transplant.
How has my hair loss affected me?
Makes you feel older.
Think about it EVERY day.
Extra time, in last 10 years trying to style my hair to cover receding temples probably equates for a thousand plus hours in mirror!
ETC ETC ETC.
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
So Far, on Finasteride, I take at 6pm every day. I havent noticed much of a difference, however nothing changed. Lots of shedding about 4 weeks after. Shedding seemed to stop around 3 months time. I can only hope it works. I am positive person however and workout often to in good spirits about all this. Very private about it though. Nobody even knows my personal struggle with my hair. I have hidden it very well last 10 years.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
So far absolutely. I know it will probably fall out next week and regroup in scalp, however just seeing it grow really looks amazing. I feel so much more youthful. I am pretty sure I will go skydiving and take up motorbike riding!hehe
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
Finasteride to attempt to stop any more hairloss.
I never used Rogaine but heard it works, just too messy and time consuming since im active.
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
In a very positive way. Best money I spent.
DO NOT BE FRUGAL WHEN GETTING SURGERY DONE, ITS NOT TO BE TAKEN LIGHTLY, SPEND MONEY ON TOP DOCTOR AND GET BEST RESULTS. REMEMBER, THEY HAVE LOTS OF INCREDIBLY TEDIOUS THINGS THAT REQUIRE THE SKILL AND EFFORT SOME DOCTORS CANNOT PERFORM. ie-Making hair grow a certain way, implanting in spaces which allow follicle not to die, etc.
My general advice and suggestions.
I love that I can share my experiences on here and will help anyone with my suggestions.
If you have worried about your hair for a LONG LONG time, then do something about it before its too late.
Thanks for viewing my weblog.
