My Hair Loss Story

Same as most everyone else...Started in my early 20's and the last two years my hair loss has gotten much more advanced. I took Propecia for a few years in between and stopped b/c I was in California at the time and couldn't really afford to keep up with it. I always wanted to have a procedure done but it was never really a realistic option for me, I'm only 27. I finally reached a point where I got so tired of the whole Toppik/Dermatch routine (even though these products are heaven sent). I finally got in a situation where I could swing it and after a lot of research I went for it and am anxious to see the results!

How has my hair loss affected me?

Terrible. I've learned to live with it but it's always something I have to contend with. Not something I hope to be worrying about as much around summer/fall of this year though!

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

I've had good luck w/ finasteride and both Nizoral and Nioxin shampoos. They can only fight the good fight for so long though.

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

Hopefully!!

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

Not yet...

My general advice and suggestions.

If you're on the fence, just do it! Do your homework, find a reputed physician that you're comfortable with and go for it.
