I was losing my hair fast from the front and on the crown area, and as a man, I was afraid I might lose even more at a fast pace. So I had a hair transplant operation at Dr. Carmen’s clinic. This was my first try for a hair transplant, and they took the hair follicles from the back of the head area. The procedure was overall good, especially the aftercare and the density of the new hair.
