My Hair Loss Story

At the prime age of 15/16 I began noticing hair loss near the temples.  Both my father and grandfather on my mother's side are bald, so from high school on I knew I was doomed.  My hair loss didn't really accelerate until I reached about 21, then it seemed the follicles on the top of my head were thin and frail.  At age 23 I (stupidly) had 500 graphs put in at the temples and front area.  For a while it looked good, but as the years went on the hair around the graphs fell out. 

How has my hair loss affected me?

It really affects you self-esteem to see other guys with a full head of hair and then looking at yourself in the mirror and see a bald guy. 

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

initially rogaine and proscar worked well, but I think I've plateaued.

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

not sure yet, I've only out of surgery 7 days 

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?

I don't know, pills and liquids slow it down but aren't really good for the long haul.  It's kind of like terminal cancer, medications slow it down but never cure it.

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

It hasn't changed it yet but hopefully will

My general advice and suggestions.

If you're starting to lose your hair and it bothers you be proactive about it, it's not going to get any better if you don't.
