My Hair Loss StoryI first noticed that I was thinning at the age of 21 and let me tell you it freaked me out. I was wondering what I did wrong to merit such a curse at such a young age. Luckily it was a slow process which allowed me to get used to it, however, getting used to is never meant accepting it. I was always self conscious. I was still able to create a half believable comb over until now. At 45 years old I could not longer cover it up. I decided now is the time to take the plunge. Luckily, so much progress has been made on hair restoration since I first noticed I was thinning. Thanks to the hard work of pioneers like Dr. Hasson I went ahead and did it.
How has my hair loss affected me?
Always self conscience of my hair loss. I always wore a baseball cap to cover it up and rarely felt comfortable not wearing it. I lacked confidence and often didn't want to go out if I couldn't hide my hair loss.
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
I tried Rogaine but it didn't work very well and ended up getting a rash, I ended up not using it anymore. The only option was a hair transplant.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
So far I am happy with what I am seeing. I was told that its not before the 8-12 month mark that I will see the final results. If things continue to progress I think I will be happy with the final result. Here's hoping!
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
Lateral Slit Technique, Hasson and Wong in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
It's strange how even a little hair makes me feel different about myself. I know I have a long way to go yet but I have a hairline now, which I haven't had in quite some time. So, feeling better no doubt about it, time will tell how much better I will feel.
My general advice and suggestions.
I can't speak for any other HT surgeons out there in terms of how good they are. I can only speak from my experience and research but I say you just can't go wrong with Hasson and Wong. Dr. Hasson has a great reputation and is really one of the top HT surgeons out there. I tried my best to find bad reviews and could not find any viable complaints. So, if you are considering a HT definitely look into Hasson and Wong, http://www.hassonandwong.com.
