My HT with Dr Woods to get my life back. (Hair Transplant)

Thanks for your reply.

In relation to medications I have taken finasteride in the past but am of the understanding that it loses its effectiveness for men once we enter our 40's. I am 45 years old now.
I use Rogaine Foam daily.

To be honest I had receded on both temple points at around 18 years of age. I was referred to a Dermatologist and Trichologist by my GP way back then and it was recommended I use Ionil T (Tar based) shampoo for a psoriasis type condition. The Dermatologist told me he expected that would assist me with the hair loss as well, which it has done for all these years.

Nevertheless the receding sides continued to bother me somewhat & finally in 2004 I had my first HT which was successful but very conservative. I moved on with life but always had wished that the surgeon had lowered my hairline a bit more aggressively on that first occasion.

10 years later in 2014 I returned to the same initial surgeon & decided to go for another procedure to improve the hairline. This was where the merry go 'round started. He left significant gaps on both sides and went noticeably lower on one side at the front which required further procedures to fix. So one more procedure led to another & then another! I really regret ever having gone back!

I still consult with a Dermatologist & Trichologist occasionally. The Dermatologist has conducted miniaturization testing/mapping and has assured me that for a person my age my hair is in fact quite stable. The only real significant hair loss I have had since age 18 & certainly in the past 10 years has been shock loss/trauma related from surgery. Needless to say I was VERY selective in screening for another surgeon given my experience as I have been left disappointed by previous procedures.
