WorkInProgressAge: 54 | Bald Class: Email Me Session 1 - I had 3800 grafts transplanted on 2/19/2009
I have been using propecia since 2/1/2008 and started to cosistently use Rogaine Foam since 9/1/2008.
My Hair Loss StoryI have been gradually losing my hair since my early 20's. I have a diffuse thinning hair loss pattern.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
I am very pleased that I chose Dr Arocha and his staff for my first hair transplant. The procedure was not painfull at all and that day seemed to go by really fast even though I was there for most of the day. They were just great! I was surprised at how little redness in the recipient area I had considereing that I have fair skin color. No one at work could tell I had a HT done, so I was happy. It has only been 2.5 months and I am already seeing growth!
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
Propecia and Rogaine foam
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
It was a big relief to get the surgery done and now I just have to be patient and wait for the hair to grow. I will be having a second surgery in a year with Dr Arocha to address the hair loss in the crown.
My general advice and suggestions.
Do you research (this site is great) and consult with several Dr's and their patients when considering a HT. I had been coming to this site for over a year before I finally decided to schedule the surgery with Dr Arocha
