My Hair Loss StoryGiven my paternal family history the prospect of falling victim to hairloss was with me from my teenage years. It became a noticeable reality in my mid 40s. Between the ages of 43 and 50 there was significant hairloss, resulting almost to the position reached prior to the hair transplant performed by Dr Wong on 13 May 2010.
How has my hair loss affected me?
In retrospect I needn't have worried about losing my hair until my 40s. The degree to which it dogged my thoughts is clearly emphasised by having an unneccessary procedure at the age of 26. The rationale at the time was to thicken a hairline, which I perceived to be too fine when in actuality it was just, fine.
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
None to date.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
With Dr Wong and his team yes, certainly to this point - an understandable qualification I feel given the end result is as yet unknown. I am, however, optimistic and realistic too.
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
Following a positive outcome to the qualification mentioned above: nothing would give me greater pleasure than to fully endorse my experience with Dr Wong and the Hasson & Wong clinic as a whole.
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
So far it has given me hope - and leave to dream!
My general advice and suggestions.
An echo to a well established mantra - thorough and exacting research.
