My Hair Loss Story

Thinning since age 21.  Made the mistake of having approx 500 mini's done in the late 90's and tried to cover it up ever since.  Finally decided to have additional HT's  to cover the old work and I'm glad I did. 

How has my hair loss affected me?

Like the rest of the people on this site, I'm tired of seeing eyes looking up at my hairline when I meet people. 

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

Pretty good results from my last HT.  I found Dr. Alexander via his patients' results on this site.  Looking forward to seeing how these 2,600 grow in. 

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

I'm glad that I decided to get back in the chair and fill in the old bad work.  I definatley have way more hair now and the first hack job Dr. Sword did is now covered up.  This is definately not a fast process.

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?

Finasteride

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

More self-confidence

My general advice and suggestions.

Find a good Doc the first time around and be patient.  It will be worth it 8 to 12 months down the road
