Mike gets two thumbs up from his golfing buddy for his new thick and healthy hair.

Growing up, Mike always got complimented for his thick and healthy hair. Through his hair, Mike felt confident and had an outgoing personality. But, deep-down Mike had a gut-wrenching feeling that the family tradition of hair loss would eventually catch up with him.

In his early thirties, Mike first noticed his hair starting to fall out. It was terrible. As his hair got washed down the drain, so did his confidence. Mike felt inferior around his golfing buddies and even poked bald jokes at himself to prevent them from taking a swing and teasing him.

Mike then found a solution by reading the hair loss forums.

Only six months after his 3423 follicular unit transplantation with Dr. Rahal, Mike confidently holds his head up high. His shiny bald head is no longer the brightest thing to hit the fairway since Tiger Woods dazzled us with his dentistry. And, the jokes about balding have stopped.

Tell me about yourself?

“My name is Mike. I’m 38-years old and married with two little girls. I run a landscaping company in Toronto, and have about 15 to 20 employees that work for me.

In the summer I am a budding golfer. My putting isn’t too bad. I did once hit a sizzling five-iron which soared over the trees taking my spirits with it. But, between the passable shots there are always several absolute horrors with no rhythm. Golf is undeniably my favorite hobby.

Mike’s regained his confidence and is back in the game, thanks to Dr. Rahal.

How did hair loss make you feel?

My grandfather (on my mother’s side) suffered from balding, and deep down I had that gut-wrenching feeling that it would eventually happen to me.

The sad part about it was that I had great hair. It was the first thing people noticed about me. I would always get compliments about how thick and healthy my hair looked.

“Before, I had no confidence, but then I had a hair transplant and now I hold my head up high!”

For me, hair says something about you. It’s a dead-giveaway on how well you take care of yourself and project yourself to the rest of the world. Having healthy and well-kept hair is a key-element in someone’s overall sex appeal. It gives you confidence to hold your head up high.

As a young guy, I felt confident. I would always style my hair in the latest trends. Then as I reached my thirties it stopped. I began to style my hair to hide the bald patches. It was a terrible feeling. Losing my hair made me feel inferior around others.

Get your confidence back through hair

What made you decide to do something about it?

I tackled my hair loss by joking about it with work colleagues. I thought that if I joked about my situation then people wouldn’t attack me first. This grew into paranoia. I always felt my workers were staring at my head.

I eventually decided to ask one of my trusted neighbors for advice about my thinning hair. The front part of my hair was 85% gone. So I was worried what he would suggest. My neighbor told me that if I decided to go down the route of a hair transplant, it was not too late. That was a relief to hear.

I told my wife. My wife was not bothered by my thinning hair, but the thought of losing any more strands plagued my mind. My wife advised me to go ahead and have a hair transplant if losing my hair was bothering me that much.

I started researching recommended hair loss doctors online.

What type of hair loss treatment (plugs, drugs or rugs) have you tried?

I cut my hair really short. It helped. I also tried a hair loss product called Minoxidil and some other alternative treatments to help stop or in hopes of reversing the balding. However, these remedies did not work at all on me.

What was it that convinced you to go to Dr. Rahal for your hair transplant?

I found Dr. Rahal online. I had spent over a year researching for highly recommended hair loss doctors.

Dr. Rahal just stood out.

I read reviews and looked at before and after photos on the hair loss forums. I found this was the best source for honest and first-hand accounts. I could not find a single bad review about Dr. Rahal on the hair loss forums. He seemed to get the best hair transplant results.

It also helped that Dr. Rahal is based in Ottawa, which is great because I didn’t have to travel too far. Having said that, when I arrived at the guesthouse I met a patient from Phoenix, and then I met a patient from England, and even one guy from Italy.

People come from all over the world to get this procedure done successfully with Dr. Rahal. This just goes to show that he really is the best out there.

Can anybody tell you’ve had a hair transplant?

People who know me very well could see that something had changed with my hair. It looks so much fuller and thicker. I had to tell them because before I was really bald and now I have hair.

Everyone I meet never can guess that I had a hair transplant. The results just look so natural that you could never tell.

How do Dr. Rahal’s hair transplant results look and feel?

I am very happy. I have a lot of meetings with clients, and having hair gives me a boost of confidence. It makes me feel comfortable with myself. And, I no longer get teased by my golfing buddies or even work colleagues about my bald head!

Do you have any advice for those considering a hair transplant?

If you are the right candidate for this procedure, and hair loss is getting in the way of your life, then I would just go and get it done. For me, hair has always been very important. Losing my hair was like losing my identity. It was devastating.

A hair transplant changed my life for the better.”
