About

I first noticed that I was thinning at the age of 21 and let me tell you it freaked me out. I was wondering what I did wrong to merit such a curse at such a young age. Luckily it was a slow process which allowed me to get used to it, however, getting used to is never meant accepting it. I was always self conscious. I was still able to create a half believable comb over until now. At 45 years old I could not longer cover it up. I decided now is the time to take the plunge. Luckily, so much progress has been made on hair restoration since I first noticed I was thinning. Thanks to the hard work of pioneers like Dr. Hasson I went ahead and did it.


My Surgical Treatments to Date

March 22, 2011. 6309 grafts.

Bald Class

Bald class 5A

Norwood stage 5A

In stage 5A, the hairline continues to progress toward the back of the head.

Always self conscience of my hair loss. I always wore a baseball cap to cover it up and rarely felt comfortable not wearing it. I lacked confidence and often didn't want to go out if I couldn't hide my hair loss.

I tried Rogaine but it didn't work very well and ended up getting a rash, I ended up not using it anymore. The only option was a hair transplant.

So far I am happy with what I am seeing. I was told that its not before the 8-12 month mark that I will see the final results. If things continue to progress I think I will be happy with the final result. Here's hoping!

Lateral Slit Technique, Hasson and Wong in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

It's strange how even a little hair makes me feel different about myself. I know I have a long way to go yet but I have a hairline now, which I haven't had in quite some time. So, feeling better no doubt about it, time will tell how much better I will feel.

I can't speak for any other HT surgeons out there in terms of how good they are. I can only speak from my experience and research but I say you just can't go wrong with Hasson and Wong. Dr. Hasson has a great reputation and is really one of the top HT surgeons out there. I tried my best to find bad reviews and could not find any viable complaints. So, if you are considering a HT definitely look into Hasson and Wong, http://www.hassonandwong.com.

Bald class: 5A
Procedure 1

Before Pics I thought I would add some before pics which I should have done before so you can get an idea as to where I was hair loss wise when this started and how it is progressing. Any feedback would be appreciated. If you take a look at my more first posts you can see the progression from 1-4 months.

Procedure 1

4 months Here is a pic of my hair at 4 months. It seems to be growing a little each day. I was told by the surgeon that the growth of the transplanted hair should be moving faster now, at least the appearance will look more dramatic in the upcoming weeks and months. I'm excited at what I am seeing so far and what will be coming.

Bald class: 5A
Procedure 1

Month 2 This is my scalp at 2 months. It has been confirmed that i am experiencing early regrowth! That was nice to hear. The waiting game is fully under way and I hope that this is only the beginning of a relatively short waiting period.

Bald class: 5A
Procedure 1

1 Month This is a photo of my scalp at only 1 month! Normally, at this point almost all the grafts should have fallen out and I would be left with a basically bald head. Fortunately, very few of the grafts have fallen out and at this point I am thinking that I might be one of the lucky ones (5%) of those that experience early regrowth. But, there is still time for the grafts to fall out, but so far so good.
