tkerr22Age: 45 | Bald Class: Email Me have had three HT's, first one done in 2001, had 1500 grafts to the front and midscalp area. Had 2nd HT in 2002 with 500 grafts to the front and midscalp. Had some results from first Ht but nothing great. second HT was horrible and regret it, didn't see any results and left me with two scars. Third HT with Dr. Alexander was fantastic as he dense packed 2000 grafts to the front and am very happy with those results! Am going back June 23rd to get one more HT for the midscalp and crown.
On June 23rd, 2006 had a second session with Dr. Alexander, receiving around 1700 grafts, all placed in the midscalp location
I take propecia daily and have for 5 years or so now. seems to have curtailed and slowed down hairloss but no regrowth
My Hair Loss Storystarted losing my hair around age 18, received my first HT at 27, receiving around 1500 grafts from a very mediocre doctor. received my second HT at age 29, receiving only 500 grafts from a horrible doctor. got my senses together and did a lot of research and found Dr. Alexander in Phoenix who performed my third HT in June of 2005 receiving 200 grafts. Have seen great results from him and am returning to him in June of 2006 for another HT for my midscalp to my crown as my front is great now!
How has my hair loss affected me?
self esteem went down, couldn't go out without a hat, if I did thought everyone was staring at me
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
HT's with Dr. Alexander, first great improvement I have seen!! Has been great and am looking forward to my new growth as well!
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
First two not so much, and when I had my first with Dr. Alexander was thrilled with the results and realized how crappy the first two were!
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
using propecia just to keep what you have, and if you have the time and money and are a good candidate find a great HT doctor and do something about it
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
giving me back my confidence, feel like I can do anything again and not worry about my hair. That's the main thing, I don't worry about it as much, and hopefully in a few months, will never have to!
