On 25th February 2013, I had an FUE session of over 2600 grafts, by Dr Feriduni in Hasselt, Belgium.
I use minoxidil.
My Hair Loss Story
Ever since my teens I’ve had a slightly raised hairline, however during my early 20s I just considered it “mature” and didn’t worry about it too much. When I got to my mid 20s, I noticed my hairline receding more, to the extent that it became difficult to style. I began cutting my hair shorter, however this dealt a massive blow to my confidence and eventually I decided that I had to do something about it. My baptism into the hair loss world was imminent.
On the 11th month of the 11th year of the millennium, I declared war on my hair loss. A few friends recommended the hair loss drug finasteride having had success with it, so I was eager to started. Soon after, I added minoxidil and Nizoral shampoo to my regime, part of the ‘big 3’ approach; hair loss treatments that are most backed up by scientific studies and literature.
My hair loss affected me quite badly, although I was relatively fortunate to reach my late 20s before it became a big problem for me. Towards the latter part of my 20s, I cleverly styled my hair to disguise the receded areas, and did this so well that many people wondered why I even thought a hair transplant necessary. However, beyond the illusion lay my recession, and the rain and wind would often betray this secret.
I had limited success with the ‘big 3’ approach, and realised that my confidence would always be veneer thin unless I took further action. I wanted hair surgery.
I consulted with Dr Feriduni via email in August 2012 and we agreed on an FUE procedure of 2400-2600 grafts, to restore density in the frontal area and create a new hairline. As shown below, two lines were drawn to indicate a conservative and more aggressive hairline. I opted for the latter.
