My Hair Loss Story

I started losing it in early 20's.  Didnt have time to do anything until now - late 30's

How has my hair loss affected me?

I was a little insecure and wore a hat alot into my early 30's....  Then got comfortable with being just about bald and stopped wearing a hat as much, but never liked that i was going bald.  So, at age 36 I started to read about the progress in the hair industry.  I read and read, and researched and researched.   I was insecure, and self consious of my hair loss and finally got a proceedure done by Shapiro.

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

Rogaine, Proscar, Not sure but I am using LaserComb now, and not sure if it works at all.

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

Dr Shapiro, Matt, Janna and the crew there were excellent!

I am 9 months (April 28, 2007) post op now, and the results are showing significantly - great actually.  Thanks Dr. Shapiro and Janna and Matt!  The crown filled in quiet a bit b/c of the Proscar and Rogaine.  I feel like I reversed the clock by at least 10 years and my hair looks like it did when I was 30 or maybe younger.  I think I am about at the end of the growth....this may be my last picture post - I might post one at 1 year next.  I would definately do this again, and the Shapiro Medical Group was great.  See my results for yourself.  I think my results are some of the best on this site!!

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?

Rogaine, Proscar, Nizoral 2%.

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

I actually had a 24 year old ask me out, she was a contestant on America's Top Model - that would never have happened prior to my way.

My general advice and suggestions.

Expect a numb head for a while.  Do your homework and find the best Dr.  you can.  Be patient.   Dont be afraid.
