ABOUT ME

BEST LITTLE HAIRHOUSE IN BC... I have been losing my hair for about 8 years now. I started thinking about hair restoration a few years ago. In February 2002 I finally took the plunge! And I can tell you this: Hasson and Wong is the way to go. I would say this to anyone: "If Dr. Hasson is not one of your top 3 choices, you haven't done enough research." With the exception of my consult with Hasson and Wong, every consultation I had left me wondering. I saw plenty of before and after pictures of hair transplants, but when I would ask if they were from actual patients of the doctor we were talking about, I always got the same answer: "Well, uh, no& But, Hair Transplants are all the same". I'm sorry, but that is FAR from the truth! I wanted to see actual patients of the ACTUAL Doctor who is going to be digging very near my brain. But, I found out, if you don't ASK the question, you won't get the answer! There is even a consultant out there, who works for another company, who had his work done by Dr. Hasson! Go figure... After combing the Internet, among other sources, I noticed that every good path lead to Hasson and Wong. In January 2002 I had a consultation at their Seattle office. Even though the information I had gathered showed that they were superior to other clinics, I still I walked in Mike Ferko's office with quite an attitude. I was sure that I could trip him up since I had all the right questions to ask. I was mistaken. As I was thumbing through the pages of their before and after photos, I came across a picture of a transplant patient that I recognized from their website. I said, "Hey! I recognize this guy! He looks GREAT, but how do I really know that he's your patient? You could have gotten this picture from anywhere!" His response? "Oh- That's George, He's stopping by in five minutes- you should stick around and meet him." Sure enough, George waltzes through the door- Larger than life! He let me inspect his mop-top. It looked great! And, if that wasn't enough, I was able to look at 2 more Hasson hairlines while I was there! I sat back down in my chair, and booked my appointment for 2 weeks later! I had a 3000 graft hair transplant (all follicular units) in February 2002, and the rest is history- Summed up in the following pictures.

MY PICTURES

 

Left: Before 1st HT, Right: 4 months after 2nd HT.
Losing 45#... Zero dollars Color and cut at Gene Juarez... $130.00 Two Megasessions with Dr. Hasson... $17,550.00 Going from bald-fat-grump-man to decent looking and being fully aware that my 2nd procedure has only STARTED to grow... PRICELESS

Just in case you were wondering, Jo...

Before, 4 months and 6 months
Here's the REAL deal... Here's my progress in one picture. This is my before, 4 month post-op and 6 month post-op pictures. At 6 months I am roughly at 60% density. The end result should be around February 2003 (12 months).
 
I'm OUT!
Ok- Jotronic- Showing the "Full Monty" does really "help the cause", so here I am! 3000 grafts and 35# later. Look how GRUMPY I looked!

7-1/2 month side
 
3-1/2 month front
PicFront view at 3-1/2 months. The hair is just starting to come in, so the follicles are pretty thin and wispy. Anyway- It's pretty fun to see the transformation. I would guess that only a few hundred of my 3000 grafts are in so far.

Front view of 8 day post-op of Hasson HT. We buzzed the top of my head for the procedure.
 
8 day post-op picture
Side view- 8 day post-op of Hasson 3000 graft transplant. You can see a few stray hairs below my new hairline- Those are from my original hairline. This is an hour after getting almost all of the scabs off.
 
Staples at 9 days
Day before staples were removed- I had 58 staples from ear to ear.
 
Scar picture with a 2 month buzz cut
2 month post op buzz cut to show scar from back. I buzzed with clippers on LOWEST setting.
 
Scar picture with a 2 month buzz cut
2 month post op buzz cut to show scar from side. I buzzed with clippers on LOWEST setting. (Jotronic inspired me...) Scar goes from ear to ear. You have to look close to see the scar- It illustrates that there is no gap in the hair around the sca

3-1/2 month side
Here's a picture at 3 1/2 months from the side. I have a few "stray hairs" left over from my "old hairline" which I will just trim or pluck.

6 month Hairline
Close up of hairline at 6 months. A few of the "stray hairs" that are below the hairline are from my "old" hairline, but they blend in pretty well. There are only a couple that are too low.

Yo Adrian!
This is the swelling I had around the 4-6 day period...
 
Scar picture with a 2 month buzz cut
A closer view of back- Still a bit pink/red. The red has since faded away.
 
4 month comparison of 2nd surgery
Left is my hairline 4 months after my 2nd surgery, and right is my hairline prior to my 2nd surgery. Notice the "see though look" on the right.

14 Months Back
This is a shot of the back of my hair 1 hour after a "Number 2 Buzz" haircut. No sign of scar- My stylist has never even noticed... (By the way- A "Number 2" is the 2nd lowest setting on a barber's clippers...)
 
14 Months Front
LOOK AT ME! I'M JOTRONIC!!!
 
14 Months Side
Again- This is at 14 months with that "Number 2" clipper haircut. Notice no gap at all in my hair where the scar is. (It's YOUR job to find it!)
 
scar picture up close at 14 months
Here's the width of my scar- I tried to show it with red. (Sorry- I'm no good at photo-shop...)

1 year after HT. NOTE: I had no work done in the crown area. I didn't bother combing my hair, but I suppose I could cover it a bit with a brush-stroke...

Left is my hairline 4 months after my 2nd surgery, and right is my hairline before my 2nd surgery. Notice that the left has a "see through" look.

Before pictures
These are the pictures of my head before the surgery. Note- The lighting, equipment, etc makes my hair look darker than it really was.
 
5 day scabs
5 day post-op (eeeewwwwww...)
 
Pro- pics
Finally found my good pictures taken by the pros- These are taken at 7.5 months. It's been a year now, and I STILL have new sprouts popping up!

Crown Before
I had no work done in my crown. The Propecia/Proscar seems to be helping there- I think it's filled in a bit...
 
Ok- We need a before-candid picture. This was taken in June of 2001
 
another candid before shot- June 2001 in Maui- Woohoo!
 
Freddie Krueger
This is epsecially for NJsnowball. Here's a closeup of a burn I got in Maui. June 2001. How 'bout that for a before shot? Gross, I know- But it shows the hairline!
 
1 year after HT
1 year after HT. I usually have my hair cut flat on top- This is what I would call the "Q-Tip look"! I had it cut again the next day
 
1 year after HT
As per request- What does your hair look like when you are NOT smiling (like in your "before" photo) I know- Not as good...
