Hello everyone, I have decided to Blog my hair restoration journey for everyone to see. My hair loss story seems to have helped so many people in the message boards that I thought I would try to reach even more people with my blog. I hope this information helps people who are considering surgery as a solution to their hairloss problems.
My hair loss started when I was around 27, starting in my crown and progressing forward to my hairline. As it became more and more noticeable it started to affect my everyday life. I was not as socialble around friends and family. My belief in myself along with my happiness level was not nearly as high. Almost every aspect of my life was changed, from work and professional relationships to my interactions with my closest friends. My self confidence took a huge hit and there was just no way to get it back. I tried medications such as Proscar and Rogaine, these products helped slow down my hair loss progression but they were not going to regrow my hair, they were not going to reverse my hair loss and get me back to where I wanted to be. So after 18 months of research I decided to get a Hair Transplant. The doctor I chose was Dr. Alvi Armani and the surgery was scheduled on March 14th of 2007. I am currently 8 months out from my first surgery and I can honestly say it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I've taken a huge step forward in beating hairloss and am a much happier man for it.
As with any surgery a lot of research needs to be done, along that research path a lot of questions arise that need to be answered. Hopefully my efforts here can help answer some of those questions. Below you will see pictures of me before my surgery, what I looked like immediately after surgery, and a monthly update of my progression with a description of what I experienced. You can email me at email@example.com for any questions you may have for me.
WHY I CHOSE ALVI ARMANI
I researched Hair Transplants for about a year and a half before I came to my decision. Hair transplants do not have a positive reputation in todays society, because of the negative stigma that hair transplants receive I was very skeptical at first. As I researched more and more I began to realize that the pluggy look of transplants performed back in the 80's and 90's were no longer the standard today.
Technology in this industry has changed for the better in a dramatic way over the last decade, doctors today truly can give a Hair transplant that looks as natural and attractive as an original head of hair. As I saw more and more results my faith in the technology became satisfied and I became excited. I decided that this was something that I wanted to do.
The next step was to begin researching the individual clinics, I had to choose who I wanted to have do my surgery. I researched many many doctors but only Dr. Armani's results really stood out to me. I found that Alvi Armaniís clinic time and time again gave eye popping results head and shoulders above the rest. There were other doctors who gave nice result, results that I could live with and probably be happy with, but only one doctorís results made me go WOW every time I saw the finished product and they were Armani's.
I decided that if I was going to spend the money on a restoration procedure these were the results that I wanted, and I will tell you that 8 months out from my first procedure these are the results that I got!
As you can see here hairloss hit me pretty hard, The crown spot is huge and while not slick it is very very see through. The midsection is almost as bad and the hairline is virtually unstylable. I tried many things, concealers, shampoos, gesl, ntohign gave me a stylable result that made me happy. I was not a very happy man in these pictures. These pictures were taken hours before my surgery.
