I had 1500 FUE grafts resulting in 3000ish hairs in September of 2014. My doctor was/is Dr. Vories in Charleston, SC

Non-Surgical Treatments:

Rogaine liquid at night, Rogaine foam in the am, and name brand proscar (1/4 tablet each day)

My Hair Loss Story

I'm a 33 year old guy who always had super thick hair. I even remember being in high school wishing it would thin a little bit. Well, I got my wish. I didn't even notice my diffuse pattern hair loss until about 2 years ago, as it just kind of snuck up on me. I immediately got on Finasteride and began taking 5 mg tablets, breaking them into quarters, and taking 1 quarter pill each day. I also immediately began using rogaine 2 times per day.

I had great results, stabilized my loss and even regrew a good bit of hair with the above treatments. I got to a point after about 1 year where I just wanted a little more hair. I then decided to look into a transplant. I found Dr. Mike Vories through a basic internet search, and scheduled a consultation. He told me he could restore my hair with 1500-2000 grafts, so I set up a surgery date for 9/14.

I'm currently at my 6 month mark from my surgery, and things are starting to look up. I'm anticipating some thickening of grafted hairs in the next few months.

How has my hair loss affected me?

Hair loss has greatly effected my self confidence

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

Rogaine, Proscar, and hair restoration have all worked well for me.

Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?

So far!! (fingers crossed)

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?

I would recommend getting on meds as soon as you notice any hair loss. I waited a little later than I should have, but am so glad I got in them when I did.

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

If I get the results I hope for, they will change my life.

My general advice and suggestions.

Be patient with treatments! They take commitment and time to work.
