Hi all,

I'm new to the forum, I've checked it out to review surgeons' work over the past few years here and there. I have never really shared my hair loss experience much with others in my daily life and I realize that it would be good for me to reach out and connect with people who understand what it's like and have support to share. I'm interested in the camaraderie here and making a few online acquaintances.

I'm in my early 30s now, my hair loss became noticeable to me in my early 20s. It was a tough time period for me and I didn't talk about it with my friends at the time. It seemed to happen very quickly for me. At that time I really only confided in my mother about it. I eventually decided to get an FUT, which was a mostly uninformed decision, and later on I got an FUE from a good surgeon which really stabilized things for me. I also use hair fibers and have a look that I am genuinely happy with even though I plan to improve it in the future. I have mostly a full head of hair look, with slightly receded hairline when using the fibers. I plan on sharing more of my story in this thread as things go on, but that's the gist of it. I'm at a good place with my hair restoration and daily life now, but kept it quiet for a long time and this is my end to that. Thanks for having me.

I'm glad the hair transplant seems to have mostly worked out for you so far. Don't ever think that you need to let anyone else know about it. If having a hair transplant makes you look and feel better then you did the right thing for you. Everyone has their own issues to deal with and it isn't anyone's business what your issues are just as it's none of your business to know theirs. Some people like to tell others and that's fine, but some would rather keep their personal life to themselves and that is fine too. Sometimes when you need to get it out it's easier to tell people who don't know you, so here we are.

BeHappy: I really appreciate your response and encouragement, this was what I was looking for when I came here. I don't feel pressure to tell other people about my hair transplant, it was more of a need to just talk about the whole journey of experiencing hair loss, backing away from my social activities and group at the time, and not really discussing it with my friends.

Sharing it now with other people feels good because I realize that most of the people here can relate and I'm also at a good point with my hair. It's manageable and I am content with my look. Nice username by the way 😊
