My Hair Loss StoryStarted losing hair @ age 21. Very slowly progressed from Norwood 2 to Norwood 4a in 2006. Kept hair very short for last few years. Look works well for my head. Keep body in excellent shape for athletic look to counteract hair loss. Social life dating just fine, but I have no plans to get to a Norwood 6. Time for Action!
How has my hair loss affected me?
Sunlight activities are shyed away from. Prefer to go out at night. Forced me to work extra hard on my body to counteract issue.
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
Not happy with libido issues on Avodart. Propecia just started, let's see. Toppik was great but felt insecure about "powder head" look.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
Surgery was comfortable. Doc Dorin, Doc True, and staff were professional, attentive, and caring. 3 weeks post op at time of this writing (9/14/06), hairs from grafts falling out. Looking forward to month 3-6 when they come back again.
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
Hair transplantation is the only way to go...
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
My general advice and suggestions.
Look closely at completed patients and their hairlines to ensure you are happy with the artistry of the doctor.
