I am not here to bash MDs nor the help that they are doing but I have been struggling with hair loss for the past 12 years. I tried many products and it just made me go bald faster. At one time, I even considered surgery. I did my research and decided to do the procedure. However, the after math is not what I was expecting. After 4 years of losing my hair, I did the surgery and it was the worst thing I could have done. I was 27 years old. I didn't want to be bald. The MD and the rest of the staff in one particular company convinced me into doing to surgery. I was skeptical but really wanted my hair back. I borrowed the money for the surgery. It cost $3,500.00. The surgery itself didn't hurt at all. I was so nervous but I really wanted this. After the surgery, for weeks I was waiting for the back of my head to heal. Eventually it healed. 3 months went by and I wasn't noticing hair grow. After 5 months I started to see hair growing but not to the extent where my whole top head was covered with hair. After 6 months, I realized that I wasn't going to get my full set of hair back. The hair that they placed in the top of my head wasn't enough to cover the whole top of my head. I was still bald and thin. That is when I realized that I made the biggest mistake of my life. Not only did I borrow money paying back with interest but I was still balding. I still couldn't go out into the world without a hat or handkerchief unless I would shave off my head. Now I have some hair back on the top but still not enough. I still look like I am seriously balding. When I shave all my hair off, you notice the big scare in the back of my head now. Itís a long line about 5 inches long. Now people see me and look at the huge scare and ask questions. Professionally, it really was the worst thing I could have done because of all the staring and being talk upon. I really don't like shaving my head bald because of the ugly scare but also because I don't like the bald look on me. I love my hair. I look a lot better with hair than without. After the surgery and all was said and done, I started looking for other ways so I don't have to be bald. I came across Hair Club for Men. Another bad experience.
