View Full Version : Need help! 1st HT a nightmare

10-27-2010, 10:01 PM
When I was 23 years old I decided to go to a HT center in Virgina Beach, VA where I lived at the time to get consultation regarding my reseding hairline. I wanted density to the frontal area of my hair. I went to a surgical center who claimed to provide follicular unit hair transplantation. During my consultation, I was told that I needed a total of 2400 grafts which would provide me the amount of density that was needed for my hair texture. 7 months later, I notice that I had little to no hair growth and after a year still no growth.So I went back to the HT center in VA and they convinced me to undergo another HT procedure to add additional 1500 more grafts. I proceeded with the procedure and only received a little hair growth and when I confronted the surgeon he advised me to take propecia but I had an allergic reaction so I had to stop taking it. Since then, I have been so reluctant to pursue hair or scar repair procedures. Now I am 31 and to this day no results! I'm so ashamed of myself for doing this. When I cut my hair short the donor scar is huge. So now I am depressed and I isolate myself from my family and friends due to my embarrassment and self-esteem.Can someone please help me find a replicable HT center in the Dallas/ Ft Worth area or a solution to my dilemma. I attached photos of the horror that I have encountered.

Acell could be the end of your troubles. In the meantime, I recommend you post in the transplants threads; lots of guys with similar experiences to you will be able to help.

Sorry to hear your situ, research the HT section as many others have gained resolve through appropriate surgery.

Fixed by 35, i find your comment misleading.."Acell could be the end of your troubles."

Have you seen patients who have has acell performed in the flesh? I have and it certainly hasn't ended all their troubles..

I said could, I didn't say will. I was merely directing a new member of the forum to one of our more recent, and exciting, discussions which might offer some hope. I don't think that is unreasonable or irresponsible.
