Dr. Charles and I discussed my options and decided to stay conservative and just fill in the temporal recession. We believe that my hair loss has stabilized in other places. During the FUT procedure, we transplanted 2052 grafts into the temporal areas.

Non-Surgical Treatments:

SMP Finasteride Minoxidil 5%

My Hair Loss Story

When I was 18, I noticed something wasn't right on my head. For a young man, my hairline seemed like it was kicking back at almost a 90 degree angle from the square tuft in the middle. I would later realize this was a receding hairline and my hairline was very receded for such a young age. This probably progressed to the time I was 26. I shaved my head and this really opened my eyes to how bad my hairline was compared to other people my age. I even had a nice little bald spot on the top of my vertex that was likely due to a mixture of hair loss and spinning on my head during my bboy days back in high school. Even though I saw a dermatologist when I was 18, he did not tell me about Propeica or minoxidil. I started these treatments at 26, although not religiously, and this probably caused my hair to regress even further. When I was 34, I shaved my head and had an SMP. The procedure was amazing, but I decided I looked ridiculous with a shaved head. So, I had the SMP removed in the front. Finally, on June 7th, 2018, I had a hair transplant with Dr. Glenn Charles. I'll provide more in the section below.

How has my hair loss affected me?

It's so awful, I created a website about it.  You can view my feelings in full here.  https://dudewhereismyhair.wordpress.com/2013/02/07/young-hair-loss-in-men/

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

Propecia has really heald the line.  I think my hair loss is progressing but at a phenomonally slow rate since I began Propecia at 26.  My current hairline had nearly as much recession when I was 23/24 as it has now. 

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

Give me 6 months :)  So far, everything has been spectacular.  The procedure and recovery were not too arduous.

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?

Propecia.  Your penis will be fine.  Keeping the hair you have is a gift from God.   

I highly recommend SMP if you have a great beard, small forehead, or look good with a shaved head.  For most of the white dudes like me, find a good hair transplant surgeon!  

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

Give me 6 months to answer this question.  My transplant

My general advice and suggestions.

Do your research.  There is so much negativity online.  Keep in mind you never hear the good stories: My penis works fine despite 10 years of taking Propecia, I had a great SMP procedure and what looks to be a promising hair transplant.
