Procedure 1
Dr. Rahal



Age: 42 | Bald Class: Bald Class 3a Email Me

My first hair transplant was on 09-15-06 at age 29 from Dr. Wolf in Cincinnatti which consisted of 1500 FUE over 3 days. Although this produced results, it just wasn't enough as my hair in the frontal 3rd was very thin and 1500 grafts will only go so far.In July of 2007 I contacted Dr. Rahal for an online consult, but I was still on the fence about having another hair transplant at the time. unlike most of the other online consults I did with many of the top docs, Dr. Rahal didn't just throw out a graft number. He wanted to know more about my expectations, goals and wanted to devise an overall plan for me. This really impressed me, so about 3 weeks later I contacted Dr. Rahal's office and booked a surgery date.

Non-Surgical Treatments:

Propecia 1 mg daily for almost 3 years now, but considering increasing the dosage. Just started Minox 5% on 11006-07 once daily.

My Hair Loss Story

I started noticing my hair loss at about 23 years old, but I'm sure it started sooner I got on propecia at age 27, which pretty much has halted or slowed my loss to this point.

How has my hair loss affected me?

It has made me less confident and more self conscience.

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?


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

Yes. I definitely feel like I have taken the proper steps in dealing with Hair loss.

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?


How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

I feel a lot better mood wise.

My general advice and suggestions.

Do lots of research and find the right doctor for you. When it comes to hair restoration, make a plan for the long term not the immediate future.
