Used Toppik since 2002
My Hair Loss StoryI started losing my hair at when I was 20-21, some kind fellow worker had great delight in pointing out to me- 'hey your going bald' thanks for that, then followed 15 years of constant comments which haven't driven me suicidal but have hugely knocked my confidence, I started looking at solutions around 2000 and have used cover ups for some time and had a spell of propecia but had to stop due to the expense, so toppik has been used for around 7-8 years. That was ok and relatively affordable but, starting to look silly and noticeable. Decided after reading an article in the press that fue/ fut had really come on albeit at a price- Went to Farjo's in Aug 09 for consultation, then had to work miracles to raise cash to surgery in Feb 2010....
How has my hair loss affected me?
Quite a lot,.it's hard to describe, luckily most people on here share the common understanding on how horrid a feeling this whole thing is, spend so may days thinking why me?
Confidence has been knocked a lot, playing in mens sports teams for past 15-20 years hasn't helped with constant ribbing- which sometimes went too far.
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
Toppik was great for quite some time, but as I got balder it started to lose it's usefullness.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
Too early to say , but I have realistic expectations as I have had crown work done- anything better than now has to be an improvement
