Bald Class: Bald Class 4

I was Cooleyfied on 8/30/06 with 3507 grafts
and am very pleased with his skill and staff. I was in the chair from
7am to 11pm where Dr. Cooley drove me to my hotel himself when it was
all done. I will gladly see him again for all of my dermatology needs
in the future and am very excited to see the results in the next few
months.

My Hair Loss Story

Started thinning at 19 and although everyone says I look good with a shaved head, I'm sick of the look and need a little variety. So.. after 5 years of HT reasearch, I finally decided to get the job done. So far, so good.
