My Hair Loss Story

I have been losing hair for about 5 years - on Propecia for about 4.  It took me some time to decide whether or not I should get on the pill so I lost a good amount of hair in between.  Losing hair on the crown was a little easier to deal with but once it started going away in the front, it became harder to deal with.  I spent most my time in college with a hat on and not going out much.  I was already a bit shy and non-social so with this additional issue, my self-esteem dropped even more.  I visited many doctors and most all had said a HT could be done but would have to be conservative since we did not know the actual pattern I was headed down.  I decided to hold off and just deal with it.  As the years went on, my self-esteem remained low and I continued wearing a hat.  Recently, it started to affect work.  I was so focused on modeling my hair in a way that wouldn't look so bad that I would get to work late quite often.  At this point, I was up to my neck with dealing with my hair - it was time to move on. I went back to Dr. Feller and he was very supportive.  We decided to remain conservative and focus on the front with about 2500 grafts.  Near the end, I got a little close to 3000.

How has my hair loss affected me?

Lower self-esteem.  Less social activities - and those I did go to, always had a hat on.

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

Propecia worked well.  Rogaine is okay.

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

Got it Aug 27.  So far so good.  Hopefully I can be patient :)

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?

Started Rogaine right away and do your research on the Propecia (but don't wait too long :)

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

Just a matter of time....

My general advice and suggestions.

Do the research - do not rush into anything.
