Why I chose to pursue a hair transplant!

Let me introduce myself.  I'm 50 years old, recently retired as a public school administrator and its time to get in better physical shape, play lots of golf, and generally try to look and feel BETTER!  I have a beautiful wife of 19 years who is a hair dresser.  A while ago I presented her with the idea of investigating hair transplant procedures.  I have typical male pattern baldness.  She was very supportive and said "When I married you, you had hair!"  That response inspired me to do my homework and look into the different processes and procedures.

After investigating different procedures I was convinced that I DID NOT want to do the strip procedure where they remove a strip of hair from the back of your head and then suture the scalp back together.  That completed turned me off and I had no desire to pursue that process.

After lots of consideration and research I decided on the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) procedure.  I also wanted this performed by a medical doctor and NOT someone who did not have extensive medical training.  After all....this is surgery!

I searched the internet for days, read many articles and viewed many YouTube videos before deciding to contact Carolina Hair Surgery for additional information.

I contacted Dr. Michael Vories after viewing many of his videos on YouTube.  After a phone conversation and personal consultation, I had no doubt  I wanted Dr. Vories to perform the procedure. Other companies want you to meet with their consultants about the procedure but Dr. Vories wanted to meet me in person to examine my hair and give me the honest truth what he could do or not do for me.  After our meeting I was convinced beyond any doubt that he was going to do the procedure.

I decided to devote an entire week for the procedure not knowing exactly how many days it would take.  One thing I did know for sure....if I was going to invest in this I wanted it to be done by the best physician and fill in the most area based on what my head would allow.  The week of September 10th was scheduled for my procedure.  I was ready both physically and emotionally for the most transformational week in my life!
