My Hair Loss StoryI started losing my hair at 19...i paniked and had a hair transplant with minigrafts..500 approx, to make a long story short I am 37 now and I have a transplant scheduled with Dr Rahal on January 19, 2012...I am looking to get 4000 plus grafts to soften my existing grafts and add some density...I feel I have chosen the best surgeon available and I am so excited, not to sound to gay, but I am! I hope one year from now things will be a lot different. My wife is supportive and she is behind me, which helps a lot.. any way, I am gonna add some photos from January,2011. I will post pre op pictures and many post pictures throughout the whole process.. also, I just recently, 6 months ago, got back on finasteride and rogaine..I hope I will see some added benefit from that before my surgery!!
How has my hair loss affected me?
One word " paranoid " from previous work!

Finasteride, Rogaine, only recently started back though!

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
Young people, get on meds and stay on meds...I started early and got lazy taking meds in my late twenties and thirties..I am fully dedicated to medicine now and looking forward to my hair transplant with Dr Rahal! I WILL stay on the meds though!
