About

I have had a total of four hair restoration surgeries. I had my first two surgeries approximately 10 years ago.  The first two procedures were done with some older tech, and continued minimization left poor results.  Grafts were poorly angled and did not appear to be natural with enough density. Also, two donor scars were created in the donor area from first two procedures.
Dr. Robert Thomas- Chicago 2002 440 grafts 2003 580 grafts
July of 2012, Dr. Matt Leavitt1964 grafts- I had another procedure to correct prior surgery and create natural density.  I went to Matt Leavitt in Orlando FL. Overall, I was semi happy with the results, grafts were done correctly and looked great.  I just was not happy with the lack of temple work.  
I went to see Dr. Glenn Charles May 29th of 2013 for approximately 1100 more grafts concentrating in my temples and a little more density in the hairline. Waiting to see results but my experience with Dr. Charles thus this far has been remarkable.  His reputation does precede him.     
Enjoy!

Bald Class

Bald class 2A

Norwood class 2A.

The class A variation of the Norwood scale is a slightly different and less common progression of hair loss. The main differences are that the hairline recedes back uniformly, without leaving an island of hair in the middle, and there is no bald area at the vertex. Instead, the hairline progresses directly from front to back.

Procedure 1

HT with Dr. Charles pre and post opt photos  I went to see Dr. Glenn Charles May 29th of 2013 for approximately 1100 more grafts concentrating in my temples and a little more density in the hairline. What can I say about my experience with Dr. Glenn Charles and the CMG staff; they were specular, Dr. Charles took his time and thoroughly explained every step of the strategic direction of his vision.  He spent a great deal of time working on making my linear scar perfect- great scar revision from prior surgeries.  The process was easy and Dr. Charles has a great bedside manor. His staff provided world-class customer service.  Now I know why you can't find a bad review online about Dr. Charles. Waiting to see results but my experience with Dr. Charles thus this far has been remarkable.  His reputation does precede him.       Email me with any questions about Dr. Charles- I would recommend him.  I already sent my dad to him.

Procedure 1

9 months At the 9 month mark- its so important to keep and review before and after photos.   Thank you to this website...  Regularly, I am unhappy with my hair until I review the before and after progress.  I am happy with the results thus this far.   The only thing, I am unhappy with is the lack of temple work.  I am going to see Dr. Charles next month for approximately 1000 more grafts concentrating in my temples and a little more density in the hairline.  I probably don’t need it but I want it.

Procedure 1

6 months Greetings, Well its that time… At the 6-month mark, like most, I would like to see more growth and density. They say you are 60% of the overall results at this point.   Eagerly waiting for the other 40%... I am seeing more growth on one side than the other.  But overall, I am happy with the growth at this point, especially when you compare the before and after pictures.  The scar is turning out great- 2 to 3 mm; considering this is my third procedure and they combined two scars into one- I am pleased.  I can see hairs starting to penetrate the donor scar. I have tried to take the best pictures pulling back the hair to show the grafts and any imperfection. (I see a lot of photos with the hair styled- it hard to evaulate the work when the hair is styled); I was post one just because.   I want to return for another procedure ASAP.  I would like to have another procedure for my temple and temple points that were missed on my last procedure.   Most say you have to wait a year. Has any had a second procedure inside of that year timeframe?   Please comment or ask any questions. Warm regards,
