About

Hair loss started at the age of 22. No family history of hairloss. Wanted to stay ahead of hairloss, so opted for a hairtransplant surgery.

Bald Class

Bald class 2

Norwood stage 2

There is a slight recession of the hairline around the temples. This is also known as an adult or mature hairline.

Rogaine and Ayurvedic hair oils

Hair transplant was very smooth. Dr Charles was very patient and answered all my questions and made sure I was very comfortable. The staff were very pleasant and provided every form of assistance. The whole procedure took 5 hrs including lunch break. The procedure was performed under local anasthesia and there was hardly any pain. When the anasthetic is being injected a slight sting is felt, but apart from that there is no pain. I watched television the whole time the procedure was being performed. 
I will comment on my results as I keep updating my pictures. 
With my over all hair transplant procedure experience, I shall definitely recommed Dr Glenn Charles as your choice of doctor. 

If you have progressive hairloss, hair transplant is definitely the treatment one can consider. Do your research in terms of the doctor you choose. Hairtransplantnetwork is a great place to start and is huge source of information. I would like to thank the editors, contributors and founders of the website for providing this forum and helping out many hairloss affected souls like me.

14 month update Hi Friends, Sorry for the late post again. Only because I have been travelling a lot lately.  My hair transplant has not progressed the way it should. I have emailed these latest pics to Dr. Charles for his opinion. On my last call with him (after 9 months), Dr Charles had agreed to fix my hairline but had asked me to wait for a few months.

9th month result Sorry for the late post friends. Results are not looking positive at all. On recieving my last email, Dr Charles had called me and said that he was not pleased with the results and  would correct my hairlin. However he has asked me to wait for few more months before deciding the next course of action. I am not seeng any hope of improvement, but lets wait and see

6 months update The results so far have been only okay. The density of hairline has not been good. The left side of hairline looks fine however the right side of hairline looks very bad. I hope that it gets better in the next few months, but I do not have much hope. I have emailed Dr Charles for his feedback on the latest pictures.
