About

I used to have longer hair.  Not very long, but long.  I started losing hair around 20 or so I think.  Due to my longer hair I didn't quite notice.  I really only got my hair cut two or three times a year.  It went very quickly however and soon I couldn't keep my hair long. 
With the receeding hair line, the hair would form an awkward triangle thing and just look bad.  I would wear a hat or bandana everyday so I could keep my hair longer.  Then I started losing more and had to cut it short.  It literally bothered me every single day.  So, a hair transplant was my next step.
I will post pictures. More information in journal.


My Surgical Treatments to Date

On June 1st 2012 I had my first hair transplant.  It was 2389 grafts and was performed by Dr. Glenn Charles and his fantastic staff.  It was done in one session. More information in journal.

My Non Surgical Treatments

None

Bald Class

Bald class 4

Norwood class 4

Characterized by further frontal hair loss and enlargement of vertex, but there is still a solid band of hair across the top (mid-scalp) separating front and vertex.

It bothers me every day.  I constantly check to make sure as much of the baldness is covered as possible.

The transplant I just had.

More than I could have even imagined.

I would absoultely recommend Dr. Glenn Charles and his amazing staff!!!!!!

To come when all my new hair grows in.  

If you're considering it, do it!

Procedure 1

Dr. Glenn Charles Hair Transplant 2 days after surgery and history. I quickly lost hair and at 24 was desperate for a solution.  It bothered me every single day and I knew I had to do something.  I am getting married on May 25th 2013 and I know those pictures will be forever.  So I decided to have a transplant.  I wanted to look my best for my wedding and so I started to do a lot of research on doctors.  My concern first was the doctor. After much research I decided on Dr. Glenn Charles. I went to the Boca Raton office.  There really is something special going on down there.  It is really a family and they make you feel so comfortable. During the whole time I was doing research and planning they were always willing (and more than happy) to answer all the questions I had. Also, not once were they pushy to try and sell me on a transplant.  It was more about me feeling comfortable and making the choice on my own.  Once I scheduled my surgery I just had to wait and get excited! I flew down on Thursday May 31st and got a hotel right down the street.  In the morning I had breakfast and made my way to the office shortly before 9 a.m.  Once I got there I was greated by some of the super friendly staff and was quickly called in for some pre-op pictures.  Then I went into the doctors office and immediately felt comfotable.  Dr. Charles asked if there were any more questions I had before we started talking about what we were going to do. He first drew in a new hairline that was his recommendation.  Then I told him exactly what I was looking for and we changed a few of the lines.  He even brought to attention some areas that I am so glad I got filled in a little.  It made the new hair line look unbelievably natural.  Once we went over some proceedures and information he gave me some anxiety medication and an antibiotic. We then went into the operating room and were all set to get started.  The worst part of the whole proceedure was the local anesthetic to the donor area (in the back of my head) and the front top where the grafts will go.  It felt like a bunch of little bee stings, but was over quickly and defintely worth it.  Once that was over he started the procedure.  There was a t.v. and dvd player in the room.  There was a very interesting documentary on about the history of the earth that I just ended up watching all day, but you can watch anything on tv, movies, listen to music, whatever will make you comfortable.  He started by removing the donor hairs and then his staff went to work prepairing them to be put back in.  He then made the incisions for my new grafts and it was time for lunch.  Also, I did not feel any pain during any of those parts.  We took a small break for lunch, which they ordered in for me!  The food was delicious and then they were back to work.  Actually at one point I think I fell alseep for a little while. Before I knew it the surgery was over and I went out for post-op pictures.  Then we went over some more information about what to do to best take care of everything once I got home.  I then actually left and went to the airport to fly home.  The first night there was very minimal pain and no bleeding. So far everything has been great.  Very little discomfort and I am getting very excited.  Everything looks absolutely great. I really can not say enough about how great Dr. Charles and his staff were.  The entire time I felt so comfortable and relaxed.  He answered all my questions and really was enjoyable to talk to.  I highly recommend him for a hair transplant, and as my hair in my crown thins eventually I will go back for a second transplant if needed.  (Please note, the thinning hair in my crown was not worked on during this session.  The area Dr. Charles did was perfect!) I will post pictures very soon so you can see exactly what I am talking about.
