About

 
I started losing my hair from a very early age. I was 17 and I remember getting comments from my friends about how I would soon become bald. I had  learned to live with it till last year when I decided to do something about it. That is when I found out about  this wonderful website and I began educating myself until I felt that I was mentally ready to go for it. Many thanks to David, Bill, Pat and everyone else who take time to log in and feed this site with all the valuable information needed for someone like me to help me take charge and finally do something about my hair loss.
At about mid September I sent my pics for evaluation to Hasson and Wong. Joe then calls me 10 days later. He tells me that he needs to see more pictures of the top of my head which I send the next day.  On October 11 I call the clinic to get some feedback. Joe tells me that based on the pictures I provided I would need roughly 4000 to 4500 grafts. I then ask about when Dr Hasson's next opening is. Joe tells me that one was in mid November, which I turned down because I would be away on a family vacation a week later. The next possible opening was at the end of January 2012. It seemed a little far away but what can I say? It was the best option i had at that point. Dr. Hasson is the surgeon I chose based on what I learned from researching on the internet since last year. I  decided to reserve the date. Joe then calls me a few hours later to inform me that a cancellation ocurred and a new opening appeared for Friday October 14. He wanted to know if I was interested in filling up Dr Hasson's empty seat. It seemed a little short notice, but I was thrilled about getting the operation done sooner regardless. I just started my scalp exersises 2 days ago but I knew inside me, I was ready and willing. I tell him "You know what Joe? Sign me up man. I'm ready."

Bald Class

Bald class 3V

Norwood stage 3 Vertex

In terms of the receding hairline, stage 3 vertex balding is a less drastic version of stage 3.
However, people experiencing stage 3 vertex balding will also begin losing hair on the crown of their head. This often starts as one small bald spot.

never tried any.

I could not be happier so far. No need for painkillers nor for sleeping pills.

Hair transplant followed by meds to maintain what you got left and stop further loss.

Too soon to tell. I feel great already for the step I took. I wish I did it earlier.

I live in New York for the last 30 some years. I have spent countless hours researching on the internet for the top rated hair transplant websites, comparing thousands of before and after pictures and reading reviews of many prominent doctors. Actually a few of the best doctors have offices within a couple of blocks away from where my business is located. Despite all this, I decided to fly for 6 hours without thinking about the extra cost (air fair, hotels), or inconvenience. You may be wondering why I made this decision. It owes to the fact that I discovered the work of Dr. Hasson, a reportedly very talented and "artistic" surgeon who I felt he would be the only doctor that would work for me.
These are of course all of my own opinions.
The bottom line is: Do your research very carefully and don't let destination be a factor.

One year Well, this is it. Full year and it seems like yesterday since I had my operation.  I'm thrilled with the results and very thankful to Dr Hasson and his skillful crew for giving me back a full head of hair, a younger look and lots of confindence. For those considering of taking the plunge, my advise is first find a reputable Doctor and then just do it. For this  month I include 3 sets of pictures. Tell me what you think. So long.

9 months a Hey guys. Its being a while since my last update but I made sure I took enouph pictures for each month so what I'm doing today Sept 6th is Im uploading months 9, 10 and 11 short by a week. I took a nice six week family vacation to my hometown in Greece. I have to tell you that my mom, my sister all of my friends and relatives they were all speachless. Whoever knew about  my transplant could not believe the results. From all the others I got the best comments ever considering I haven't seen them for 2 years. Some of them told me that I look better than ever that it must be the water that we drink in New York. xaxaxaxaxaxaxaxaxa. That felt good.  Anyway. Here are the pictures. please leave me some comments let me know what you think.

8 months a      It seems like yesterday but it's been already eight months since I had my operation. Time flies. Looking at this months progress I don't see any big difference compare to last . I think it's about the same. Which is good. I'm very happy with the results so far. There is still four more months to go until final. Let's wait.  See you on my next update.

7 months a Well, I am at 7th month mark. What an interesting jorney so far. So since last month I see that hairs are thicker,  a lot more manageable to comb / direct, density has improved. I still see thin hair, (not a lot), sprouting along the hair line, Iam assuming the same is happening behind it  but it's hard to see in between. Scar is almost  90 % invisable. Overall I'm very happy so far. Positive comments are coming almost daily. It feels great. So long. See you next month.
