parkaveadmanBald Class: Email Me I've had two FUT surgeries already. The first was in Massachusetts in 2009 with Dr. Distefano where I got 1400 grafts and I saw great results but was left with a very bad thick scar. My second surgery was also FUT with Dr. Pong in Chiang Mai, Thailand where I think it was around 1,500. He cut out the thick scar and did a better job with sewing it up, unfortunately a lot of scar tissue was left after it healed and now I have a 1.5mm thick scar that goes all the way to my ears and I have to keep my hair pretty long to cover it up.
I've been on Finastride since I was 19 years old. I'd really like to get off of it at some point. Also on Rogaine on and off.
My Hair Loss StoryI'm 32 years old. Suffered from hair loss since I was 19.
How has my hair loss affected me?
It's been a journey of sadness but I'm starting to get used to it that I'm balding and it doesn't affect my confidence so much anymore but I'd like to repair the scar now so I can wear my hair shorter one day. Totally missed the boat on all those cool hipster hair cuts ;P
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
Transplants only. Rogaine is dumb, stop using it and it the results go away. 20+ years they have been in business and all they have to show for it is advancing from a liquid to a foam.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
Yes and no. First transplant, I had good results but I was left with a terrible scar. Second one I had not great results and the scar improved but their is now a lot of scar tissue.
