I had my hair transplant done by Dr. Ziering in August 2004. My hair had been thinning over the last 5-7 years or so, and I had a golf ball size spot in the front of my hair (at my bang line). I was so self-conscious of it, and it was becoming more and more difficult to hide with hair styles. I was delighted to meet Dr. Ziering and learn I was a candidate for transplant. The procedure itself was a piece of cake, and a very relaxing day all in all. I watched three movies, took a nap, had lunch and chatted with the very friendly staff. I had no pain at all. The post-op period was a little more challenging, but very doable. I am SO glad I had the transplant done, and feel so much better about myself now. I can’t thank Dr. Ziering and his staff enough. They are a great group of people and make the whole procedure easy. You can email me if you’d like to chat more about the procedure. We can also exchange phone number at that time. Good luck, and just do it!! You will love it!
