I've Made My Decision...Just scheduled with Doc Shapiro!


Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

Well, I am pretty excited. Just got off the phone with Matt Zupan at SMG and scheduled my procedure with Shapiro for early July (they are booking really far out right now, and I was lucky to get this spot!). I feel very confident in this choice. Despite my desire for a low, dense hairline, I know Dr. Shapiro will develop an appropriate strategy for helping me to combat the loss.

 

Special thanks to Bspot, Pat, M&M, troy, and buddyebsen for the advice on selecting a surgeon. I appreciated the feedback, gentlemen.

 

troy--would still like to see your work with Dr. Rose. Work got busy this week, but will contact you soon. Hope you are well.

Current Regimen:

Nizoral 1% (3x weekly)

EMU Oil (nightly application)

MSM (3,000mg daily)

Viviscal (2x daily)

Daily Multivitamin

Thanks, guys! I have to admit, I am pretty pumped right now. I will definately post the before and afters so we can all evaluate the final product.

 

On the phone today I mentioned to Matt how helpful this forum was in helping me build up the courage to schedule the procedure. It's a great service, and a community I look forward to continuing to be a part of. You guys have a good thing going here.

 

Bspot, rest assured that I will have plenty of questions as the big day gets closer. Thanks for the offer!

Congrats on your decision, Bball! I'd wish you luck but with where you're headed you won't need it. Be sure to try and document your procedure with good quality before and after pics. You'll be glad you did and help others in the process.

BBall - Congratulations on your choice. You won't be disappointed. I just finished my procedure there this past week (photos and writeup to come later this week) and the experience truly exceeded my expectations. Dr. Ron Shapiro is a true caring professional who really takes the time prior to, during and after surgery to discuss and answer all questions you might have. Further - Matt is extremely knowledgeable and helpful ... as is the entire staff.

 

Keep us posted!

Thanks, everyone! Hairbank, I will make sure to keep detailed records, and get some good before and after pics, from consistent angles, and with good lighting.

 

M&M, congrats on the procedure. I'll be looking forward to hearing more about it.
