My Hair Loss Story

After leaving staples in for 30 days to reduce risk of scar stretching, at 23 days post op started getting regrowth of transplanted hair that had fallen out. Began to notice loss at age 25. Started taking propecia age 32 and added Minox and MSM around four years later. Propecia halted loss and gave some limited renewed growth. Had great results with the addition of Minox and MSM initially, but after 1.5 years the gains had scaled back, leading to my decision to go for hair restoration surgery.

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

Minox; Propecia; MSM

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

The experience so far has been positive and the results at this early stage look promising. I really like the hairline that Dr Hasson designed for me. 

The journey back to UK was not smooth and if I had to plan this trip over again I would stay five or six days in Vancouver before flying back. Head swelling coupled with extensive temple work made it difficult to wear a hat. Consequently throughout the journey I noticed people staring at me with a curious mixture of fascination and revulsion, which made for a memorable flight home. Airport security also seemed to interpret all my facial swelling and red scalp as signs that I was carrying Polonium 210 in my hand luggage :-) 

I've created this blog to help track my progress and to alleviate the boredom after spending seven tedious days recovering at home! I'd appreciate any comments on the results.
