It's been a day post-op, and I'm looking forward to the results. The entire crew was professional and friendly during my procedure, and made sure I was comfortable and relaxed. The procedure was methodical and unrushed. The physician personally handled the equipment for selecting donor grafts and creating implantation sites and remained in office to oversee the entire process. The technicians and RN had years of experience in their field. The front office was and continues to be accommodating and supportive. Expectations from research online were met, and I'm glad I chose Bosley. UPDATE 🙂, 1 year and three days post-op. It worked! I can actually choose hairstyles again, instead of pushing it all together and trying to justify not shaving it. Now, for a good 9 months I still wore my head shaved. But even the new hairline that was established made it look sleek. No one noticed the donor site scars, even when I pointed out the donor area (I do have fair skin, which I've been told helps scarring to blend in.) It was really encouraging to see new growth over the months. Around month 6 I tried growing it out, and it hadn't quite filled in yet. I called Dr. Epstein with concerns about it, and he encouraged me to be patient. After the 9 or 10 month mark was when all those hairs thickened up and started growing in sync. Now I sweep my hair back or down across my forehead, and I’ll experiment with growing out the front. Follow your prescribed regimen (don’t be scared of finasteride, I didn’t experience side effects!), be patient, and look forward to your investment. Thanks again to the crew that worked on my procedure!
