My Hair Loss StoryStarted losing my hair at 17. got my sergury done as i was turning 22 by Dr Rahal.
(update) my first session was done in August 2005 with 2401 grafs which covered the front of my scalp.I have recently done my second session (December 2008) with 2650 grafs on the mid sclap also with Dr Rahal as I loved his previous work on me and was extremely satisfied.
It's now been 3 years and 5 months since I did my first session with Dr Rahal when I was 22. Let me tell you that these have been the best 3 years and 5 months of my life. I wake up in the morning looking in the mirror and do not get depressed cause I look 15 years older then my real age. It gets depressing when strangers confuse your mother for your wife let me tell you. When they say it changes your life .. it really did, I started taking care of myself in every way possible after my first sergury in 2005. I am much healthier now, much happier, I lost arround 40 lbs of pure fat and started eating much healthier. Ppl actually like being arround me and beleive me ppl NOTICE the confidence in your acts and words.
This is why I felt like my second session was at the right time to cover my mid scalp (even though I still had some of my original hair) I knew it will eventually fall off therefore I decided to make a smooth transition without another depressing phase.
It's now been a week since my second session and it went very smoothly. Dr. Rahal and his staff did an amazing job as usual and took very good care of me. I am just waiting very anxiously for the results of my second surgery :) I will post some pics for you guys eventually to show you the resutls
