My Hair Loss Story

My story is pretty straightforward; mother's side of the family has the hair loss gene, consequently, so do I. However, mine started going only during a rough patch in university when I was about 23, and stopped after I had successfully navigated through it. So I was left to decide if I wanted to salvage what remained (which was substantial enough) and figured I'd go ahead with a procedure, which brings me to this blog.

How has my hair loss affected me?

I can't say for certain if I ever felt "affected" by my hair loss. More than anything, I was just annoyed that it went the way that it did; fairly fast for a couple of years, then just stopping. I'm not afraid of baldness per say, just the notion that I felt it was a little too premature in my case.

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

Before my surgical treatment, I had never indulged in any other form of hair treatment or surgery.

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

So far, so good! Although I am only into the first week and a bit post-op, the transplant has settled nicely, the swelling is completely gone and while the sutures are a little itchy, they remain fastened and secure and overall I have had zero problems!!

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?

I think from just the magnitude of difference that I see already, hair restoration surgery is the way to go. It's a literal "nip it in the bud" solution; you get positive results from day one that are dramatic and inspiring.

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

Again, it's too early to tell, however the intended results are designed to bring me back to the appearance of "looking my age" and eliminating any stigma that may be associated with hair loss.

My general advice and suggestions.

If you are even thinking about getting the surgery done, don't procrastinate. Do your due diligence and initiate the actions that will get you from contemplation to completion! It's worth it, man.
