I started losing my hair when I was in my early 20’s and I hated it. Who wouldn’t? I don’t like to admit that I care about my looks. I should just shave my head and be done with it, at least for a while I have a fairly big head and I look like an alien without hair.
With a receding hairline, I looked older. My right front temple was almost completely gone by the time I finished college. My self-confidence was also gone.
Some would say that this is a good way to build character. Adversity make us better people. I’m already a good person. I don’t need to lose my hair to make me a better person. I decided to battle my hair loss.
I spent hours every night on hair loss forums. I won’t get into all of the details of the crazy experiments I tried. Here are a few of the off-the-wall ones. Mesotherapy , Rogaine , Washing my hair with vinegar, Trying silly, expensive shampoos like Nioxin, Buying and trying a hair system, Quit exercising for fear it was increasing testosterone, Oil applications, Biotin supplements, Laser Light Therapy ($700), Doubling my Propecia dose The list goes on but I won’t bore you.
1 year ago I decided to get a hair transplant. I probably spent over a hundred hours researching surgeons, techniques, studying results. I decided to go with Dr. Safiye Kurt. She’s based in Istanbul.
I chose Dr. Kurt, because he seemed to be performing FUE (I’ll get into this), and had good results.
My results were pretty good. The transplant made a huge difference in the overall appearance of my hair. I went from a receding hairline to a solid but mature hairline. I didn't want the hairline of a 15 year old. I wanted something to match my age.
However, I do have some gaps where the hair didn’t grow and I have a fairly large bald spot on the right side of my head where my surgeon probably removed too many hairs.
I would do it again in a heartbeat. In fact, I’m going in for a touch-up procedure in May. I’m going with Dr. Safiye Kurt as second session.
