osris's Hair Loss Story
I’ve being suffering from male pattern baldness since I was 30; I’m now 48. During this time I managed to disguise this fact through the use of various hair thickeners and concealers, combined with various intricate combovers (think Donald Trump!) and could get away with it until fairly recently. But it got to the stage where I began to feel self-conscious about it, and increasingly anxious about being discovered due to harsh winds, rain or other unforeseen combover related calamities.
So in the end, I decided to get a hair transplant. I had thought about this option several years ago, but didn’t have the money available then, and wearing a hairpiece was something I didn’t consider, as that would have made me even more nervous in high winds, despite the very good glues and tapes I hear you can get to secure hairpieces.
Being based in the UK, I didn’t want to travel abroad for a hair transplant, and so did some research on UK doctors (mainly from reading the Hair Restoration Social Network’s forum) and saw that of the UK doctors, Dr Bessam Farjo was recommended above all, so I decided to go with him, and had a hair transplant in November 2011.
As I write this, it’s April 2012, and the transplanted hairs are growing in well. I will post some pre-and post-op photos on the forum, and create a Patient Hair Loss Website.
