About

I am 27. Hair loss has bothered me for a while and i wanted to do something about it. It was affecting my self confidence big time. I was in denial for sometime until i started noticing the hair loss in my pictures. I had to find a permanant solution to this. I did alot of research over the internet and read through user blogs on this website and decided to go with Dr True. My experience with Dr True has been nothing less than exceptional. I went through a intial round of consultation with Dr True ofcourse free of charge. We discussed and decided on the plan of action. I got my surgery done at the True and Dorin clinic in NY. The doctors and the the staff were extremly cordial and very professional. The surgery was practically painless and there were no post surgery complications. I remeber taking just one tylenol after the surgery that was it. I am looking forward on going back for my second HT with Dr True end of this year. I would totally recommend Dr True!! :)

Yes

Nothing.

Yes I am . I am planning to go in for another transplant soon to keep up with my hair loss and add more density to the already transplanted area.

I would not advise any products. They have side effects with no permanat solutions. Hair transplant is the way to go. Just lead a healthy life style eat right and exercise in the mean time.

Dont stress!!

Procedure 2

Before Surgery I am 30 years old. My hair loss was very slow progression for around 5 years (maybe 10 years), so I didn't notice it at first. I only looked at myself in a mirror, and I only noticed my receding hairline at first. I did some research online, and I found this website. I looked at hundreds of photos, and it seemed around 1500-2000 grafts on my hairline will be enough for me. I looked at recommended physicians around my area and Dr. Edmond Griffin was recommended. There is almost no reviews about him on this website, but after reading his profile description on this website which talked good things about him, I decided to go with him. But it was a terrible mistake.

Procedure 1

Day of the 2nd hair transplant12 22 2008 Its been 13 months since my second hair transplant. Unfortunately for me, my hair loss accelerated a little after i stopped using rogaine for about 6 months after my 1st transplant started taking shape. I ended up loosing more native hair in the mid and top region of the scalp. After my second transplant, Dr true advised me to give propecia a try. I went on propecia in Feb 2009. The drug has been very effective in keeping my existing hair and in slowly adding density to my top area of the scalp. These pictures were taken right after the 2nd hair transplant.

Procedure 1

Night before the 2nd Surgery Hi People..... Its time again. I have been eagerly waiting for the day. Tomorrow, i go in for my 2nd Hair Transplant surgery with Dr True. I met with him a couple of weeks back and he was kind enough to be flexible with the surgery dates around the holiday season. So what have we decided on...... We are going to do a dense session this time going back to the areas where he had done the earlier hair transplant i.e frontal and the temple area. He is going to add greater density. He will also be working in my mid section as i have thinned a bit there. He is looking at doing 2500 grafts this time around. Wish me the best of luck!! I will try and keep you all posted on a monthly basis with my pics. I know there are alot of people out there looking for hope!! I can tell you, there is HOPE!!! Just decide and go for it. You will not regret it a bittt!!

Procedure 1

One year after surgery Its been a year since my hair transplant surgery. My donor area has healed totally. I stopped using Rogaine for a few weeks now. It was not suiting me. I was on Rogaine for about a year. I think that has caused some hair shedding but its more stable now. I had a haircut a week back. These pictures were taken today.
