Samson Posted August 5, 2009 Share Posted August 5, 2009 Hello Everyone, First-time noob poster here, but a LONG time lurker on this wonderful website. I really want to thank both Pat and Bill for creating such an open and honest forum about hairloss. This site has been an invaluable research tool for me. I really can't thank you enough. I've been thinking about having a hair transplant for about 12 years now. That's right 12 years. I had a consultation with the Bosley office in Seattle at that time. I decided to skip the procedure (thank god) and try a new drug that I discovered after research on the Internet. The drug was called finasteride and it completely stopped my hair loss and even grew a lot of hairs on my crown. As a result of this drug I was able to keep my head of hair which to this day is still actually quite substantial. For all of those of you who are still debating taking this drug I would highly recommend that you at least try it. Even with a good head of hair, I still have a receding pattern on my forehead that I have never liked and I feel that hair transplant techonology has evolved enough for me to take the plunge. I was directed to Hasson and Wong's website and I was really impressed with both the results and the honesty of the photographs. After researching this an other hair loss websites I was blown away with the consistently good results of the clinic. I started the process on an online consultation and I was put in contact with both Joe and Christina. Long story made short, I booked a consultation with Dr. Hasson tomorrow (8/6/09) and secured a procedure date of September 2, 2009. I'm nervous but excited. I have been compiling a list of questions to ask Dr. Hasson (I'm about 4 pages right now). I have the good fortune of being less than day's driving from Vancouver and I'm looking forward to getting out of the house. It's been near 100 degrees here (Washington State) for over a week and the weather channel says that is will be in lower 70's in Vancouver. That sounds wonderful. I will try to post photographs in the next couple of days. I will be asking the clinic to take before pictures tomorrow and I will post them if they do so. Blue wall here I come! I will also take notes tomorrow and post a summary of them for your review. If anyone wants me to ask a specific question let me know and I try to remember to ask it. I will also try to start a weblog soon to document my results. BTW, does anyone know the wait time to cross the border into Canada? I will be taking I-5 to the border. I have never used my passport before if that makes a difference. Best Regards! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
