Just seven months after hair transplant surgery, Michael has regained his confidence. His passion for adventure has returned. He’s exploring new places and experiencing new things.

Michael York is a 32-year-old outdoor enthusiast. He has a passion for adventure – traveling, camping and hiking. But hair loss was stopping him from enjoying life.

Then he found Dr. Rahal.

Only seven months after his hair replacement for men, Michael has regained his confidence. His passion for adventure has returned. He’s exploring new places and experiencing new things.

“I’m 32-years-old, from the west coast of Nevada in the United States. My passion for the outdoors developed at the age of 18, when I started hiking and camping outside to lose weight. I weighed just over 300 pounds!

It was hard work, but I finally lost the weight and started to get my confidence back. Just when I was feeling good about myself, my hair started falling out, and I withdrew from life. You can control your weight but not your hair loss.  It was one challenge after another.

Take control of your hair loss

“Hair loss affected all aspects of my life”

Having a hair transplant transformed my life. I left a corporate job of ten years to study and become a nurse.

I became so preoccupied with hair loss in my early twenties that it affected my relationships. Rather than go out with my friends and socialize, I thought about toupees and other ways to cover up my head.

My hair loss would get me down and stop me from doing the things I enjoyed. Eventually it started to affect all aspects of my life. It affected the way I perceived myself in the mirror every day, my work and my personal life. Hair loss became devastating all the way around.

“I felt ashamed of my hair loss”

I felt afraid to ask a doctor for help about my hair loss. Instead I traveled to Europe and got over-the-counter Proscar (Finasteride).  In the United States you need a prescription for this hair loss drug. In Europe you don’t.

I ended up taking Proscar pills (from Europe) years before I ever consulted with a doctor. But my hair continued to fall out.  I researched online for alternative treatments and eventually discovered Rogaine. It worked to an extent, but by that point it was way too late. I had lost a substantial amount of hair, and I was just trying to keep what I had.

How do you find the best hair transplant doctor?

I started researching online for hair implants for men and found Dr. Rahal off the Hair Transplant Network. At first I considered two hair restoration doctors from the hair loss forum. Looking at the before and after photos and reading their blogs. Ultimately, I decided to go with Dr. Rahal based on the patient photos I saw online.

It didn’t look like there was a better hair restoration surgeon out there.

I took a chance and booked my flight for my consultation. Dr. Rahal’s staffs made me feel very comfortable. I was very impressed by the level of service and professionalism. All my questions were answered, and I went into the procedure knowing exactly what to expect.

Describe your hair transplant procedure?

During my procedure I did not feel any discomfort. On a scale of one to ten (ten being the highest level of pain), I would say the level of pain was a two. It was very tolerable. I had a total of 4500 grafts around the hairline and over the crown.

The hair transplant improved my hair quality tremendously.

My new hairline has re-framed my face and made me look much younger. In two weeks, I will be at seven months post-op.  It’s comforting to know my hair is still improving.

Only seven months after his hair transplant surgery by Dr. Rahal, Michael has regained his self-confidence. His life is back on track, and he is studying to become a nurse.

“People can’t believe how amazing my hair looks”

No one can guess I had a hair transplant. My cousin is a cosmetologist, and she can’t even tell. She has clients come in from other doctors with shoddy hair transplants, but she really can’t believe how amazing and natural my hair looks.

Hair restoration for men transformed my life. I left a corporate job of ten years to study and become a nurse. I plan on taking the program this fall. Being a nurse will open up a lot of opportunities for me, especially in travel.

What advice can you give to someone considering a hair transplant?

When looking for hair transplants for men, I would say it’s very important to do your research. I became an active member on the Hair Transplant Network, which is a valuable source of transparent information for young men.

I am very involved in the hair loss forums. A lot of people reach out and ask me about Dr. Rahal because I documented my procedure so well.

My advice is don’t rush into anything, and keep your expectations realistic.
