I didn't notice my hair loss until my girlfriend...

I didn't notice my hair loss until my girlfriend casually pointed it out. After I did a little research, I talked to my doc and got a prescription for Finisteride to help stop my loss. I took the prescription for 6 months and noticed that my hair loss stopped, but I still wanted to add some more density through the top and in the corners where my hairline had receded. That's when I decided to meet with Dr. Barbieri.
Let me start off saying, I knew 6 months before I did a procedure that I did not want a strip procedure. I read so many negative reviews and didn't want a scar. I'm only 28, and I enjoying buzzing my hair in the summer so I didn't want to lose that option. Once I learned that the Artas FUE was available in KC, I knew that was the best choice for me.
I scheduled my procedure to coincide with a few days off work. The procedure was much easier than expected.
I arrived at the office at 7 am, and talked with the Doctor and his team. They cut my hair as they needed to, and gave me an antibiotic and a Xanax to relax me. Then they numbed my scalp with a local anesthetic and the team and robot started working. I napped on and off for a couple of hours. After they finished taking out my new hair, they numbed the top and made recipient sites for the new hair. Then I watched Netflix while the team placed the new hair. It was a low key day
I did 1000 grafts and am pleased with my result
I am sharing my result because I want other guys to know there are options besides a strip procedure to get your hair back.

There's been no follow up since my procedure. I'm very disappointed with this. Not once has Hair By Robotics or any of their employees checked on me.
On top of that, when I cut my hair with a 1 guard, I can see the area where they took my grafts from. I would love someone to explain to me how this could happen with such a small procedure, but they have not even contacted me. I was aware that their could be a tiny scar, but I thought that the purpose of the Robot was to spread out the harvesting.
They don't care about their patients, results, or hair transplant at all.
Needless to say, if I ever have another hair transplant, it won't be from a company like Hair By Robotics.
