BaldBeardedGuyAge: 40 | Bald Class: Email Me No surgeries till visiting this network and doing some research. I considered some clinics in Dubai but it was too much of a risk and cost to put the limited donor hairs to unknown doctors. I decided to consult Dr. Damkerng Pathomvanich in Thailand and had my operation on the 11th of March 2009 (after a 3 month waiting list).
I wished to have at least 4000 grafts but due to my thick non-elastic scalp I was only able to give 3575 grafts:
1-hair grafts - 500
2-hair grafts - 2617
3-hair grafts - 304
4-hair grafts - 154
Total grafts = 3575
Total hairs = 6723
I have not taken any medicine or ointments to stop or reduce my hair loss.
My Hair Loss StoryStarted losing hair in the early 20s. Accepted my fate for a while and then decided to take some action.
How has my hair loss affected me?
It really haven't affected my lifestyle but recently after I got married I wanted to have a big change in the way I look. Began to workout and try to loose weight. At the same time I decided to do something about my baldness and I'm still young being 29 years old.
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
I haven't tried any, too many gimicks on the market such as snake oil and other local tribesman medicines where I live.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
I just had my hair transplant 3 hours ago and I have to say that I'm really happy with the Dr. Pathomvanich skills, clinic and staff. I was given all the information that I needed and were happy to answer any questions I had about the operation.
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
It will be a year before I see the final results so I'll update you once I see them. It seems that a hair transplant is the way to go.
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
In one years time I'll let you guys know :)
My general advice and suggestions.
Research, research, research.
