My Hair Loss Story
I began noticing some recession of the frontal hairline at age 19. The loss was fairly fast by age 21 I was almost NW3a. At that time I started using Minox (5%) and proscar at 1.25mg, and had some response, but no re-growth it only stopped my shedding and hair loss. So I kept taking Minox and proscar until I was age 24. Then I decided to get my 1st HT with Dr. Rassman of NHI in California. The total transplanted graphs were 1100 micros which only gave me a very light and sparse hair line. So, the years went by and I’ve had no further hair loss ( I reacted well with fina and minox). Then on May 26th of last year at age 37 I finally decided to take the plunge and do another hair transplant procedure. At that time I went with Dr. Marcelo Pitchon from Brazil. I don't know what happened but for my disappointment I’ve had absolutely no growth and as matter of fact even 14 months after the HT it’s still hard to believe that not a single hair grew. I assumed that Dr. Pitchon used a very poor technique. It was indeed a very traumatic experience. So, after my 2nd HT I was left with much less hair in the top of my head and a ½ an inch wide scar in the back . It just became obvious that I needed a 3rd procedure to repair and actually achieve what that 2nd procedure was supposed to do. That is when I started to research online (hairlosshelp.com) and saw some of the amazing results that Dr. Hasson had achieved with the lateral slit technique and dense packing. So, I researched a little more but still had some doubts , that’s when I decided to call Hasson and Wong and spoke with Joe aka Jotronic and he suggested that I send some pictures so Dr. Hasson could evaluate … Then, after a day Joe called me back and we talked about my concerns and past traumatic experiences , we had a couple of laughs on the phone and he explained what Dr. Hasson suggested , I’ve felt no pressure from him and any one from Dr. Hasson’s clinic and that was very encouraging . The next morning I called then and arranged my 3rd HT procedure confident and full of hopes ….
