Hey! Thank you so much for the comment, it means a lot to know that my effort at communicating my story wasn't for nothing.

Toppik really looks like a nice product, I was really amazed the first time I saw it on youtube but by then I was already in the mind set for the surgery so I didn't really care to try it. Beside, I'd rather have something more permanent, I can't imagine myself spreading that on my head while I am in the army. I work out usually multiple times a day and I have to wear a headdress most of the time so, it wouldn't be very effective I believe.

About you and the surgery, I would tell you to consider it. Most people I've talked to in real life, they always ask me about the physical pain of the surgery where they don't understand that the emotional and psychological pain of losing my hair was much MUCH greater than the pain received during surgery. I remember towards the end of week 2, where my hair weren't falling yet and where the follicles were healed, that my hairline looked the best and I was truly happy with my decision. I'm very excited to go back to that but I know that I am in the waiting period.

If it is something you really want to happen, make a plan and follow it through. I saw the Alvi Armani hair transplant ad when I was 24 and I tore the ad from the newspaper and keep it in my home for the next 4 years, it was on one of my dashboards where I put important stuff, it stayed there reminding me that one day I would go through it. Only when I was 28 (in 2011) that I decided that I would save the money and get it done a year from now. Christmas last year I told my whole family that I would do it and so I was committed. I swore I wouldn't go back on my word and have them look at my face without the change I promise myself.

So you could do something similar. As long as you don't set yourself a date, it might happen but if you do set a date, it will happen. Make a plan to save the money, make the sacrifices. Man, I sold my car September 2011 in order to save more money because I knew my finances wouldn't make it. When I look back on it, I am glad I did, I save tons of money, I biked around all the time which gave me more cardio that now I don't even think I'll get a car for another year because I want to pay more on the house. It's all about the focus and once you have it, not lose it.

Just as a side note, please don't make my "results" for my surgery the spark to start yours. Like I've said already, the surgeons offer us a "service" but it does not guaranty results. I have the absolute faith Alvi Armani in Beverly Hills offered me the "best" service I could have hoped for but now the results are up to me and my body. I am very positive that I will get amazing results (a little bit of positive thinking never hurt) but I know that regardless of what happen, whatever the results may be it was all up to my body to provide. So what I am saying is that maybe my results will be mediocre at best, but that shouldn't stop you from trying it yourself. A body's physiology is very different from one person to another and there is no way to know in advance how the results will take.

Thanks again for the comment and hope you get to follow me on my results!
Take care and talk to you again soon!
