StevenAge: 56 | Bald Class: 9-1-2011, 2975 graphs by Dr. Bernardino Arocha (First Session)
Minoxidil, 2Xs daily
My Hair Loss StoryI had a full head of hair well into my 20s. In my late 30s, I began to notice a receding hairline, and thinning in the crown area. I continued to experience significant hair loss into my 40s, even though minoxidil worked well on the crown area. So, I started doing some research. I first met Dr. Bernardino Arocha in the summer of 2010. He quoted me a reasonable price, based on my research of several other hair transplant surgeons, and indicated that I needed approximately 3000 graphs in the frontal area to get a look of fullness. At the time, I was a full-time law student, and needed to wait until I had adequate funding.
So, I returned to see Dr. Arocha about one year later. He not only remembered me, he kept all of his promises, and I was able to have the hair restoration surgery on 9-1-2011. His staff was excellent, attentive, and always polite. I have had a great experience with Dr. Arocha, and the only discomfort I experienced from the entire procedure was just during the first couple of days directly after the surgery, and that was only from my donor area.
I highly recommend Dr. Arocha. He is an artist, a man who keeps his word, and someone I completely trust. I am truly grateful to Dr. Arocha for his integrity, and mainly for just caring.
How has my hair loss affected me?
I am pursuing a legal career to become a litigator. For better or worse, first impressions are often critical. So, in order to look and feel my best I chose to correct my hair loss with hair restoration surgery.
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
Minoxidil has worked well in the crown area.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
I am extremely pleased with Dr. Arocha and his staff. I had the surgery on Thursday, 9/1/2011. I took advantage of the Labor Day weekend, and went back to school and work the following Tuesday. I have absolutely no discomfort. My wife informs me that in the donor area I have only a very small scar that is completely hidden by my hair. I will be adding pictures to chronicle my hair growth results.
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
Hair restoration surgery is a solution I would highly recommend.
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
Since my hair restoration surgery was recently performed on 9-1-2011, I am waiting to see the
final results. However, I am already seeing tiny fine hairs grow where
no hair has grown for years. I am confident that I will have a renewed look very soon.
My general advice and suggestions.
Do your homework. I researched doctors and procedures for probably about 5 years before I went to Dr. Arocha. I knew approximately what I should pay, and I had read several hundred testimonials about patients' experiences with their doctors and treatments. Do your research until you feel comfortable about your decision.
