My Hair Loss StoryStarted very young. Had two bad transplants (plugs) in the 80's which had removed surgical, which left some scaring on the left and right front sides (temple area). (I have pictures posted. Search on my name.) As hair thinned, those scars became more noticeable. After extensive research, selected Dr. Bernstein.

Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
Everything looks good so far. Procedure was painless. Took one sleeping pill and one pain pill first night and fine the next day. Overall experience, was excellent and am hoping for the same with overall results.
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
Of course, rogaine and propercia (monitor side effects.) HT, if right for you. Very much a personal and individual decision.
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
