A lot of people know me as co-owner of Austin Hair Graft, a laser technician for over 25 years, mother of triplets, and Dr. Hall’s wife. But many of you may not know that around the time I turned forty I started noticing significant changes in my hair. I began to have lots of hair breakage and thinning at my temples. I have a lot of hair in general so I was able to style my hair most of the time in a way that hid the thinning, but the continued slow receding definitely bothered me.
In 2011, after having seen a real need among our patients, we decided to incorporate hair restoration into our plastic surgery practice. Austin Hair Graft was formed with the goal of offering patients a comprehensive surgical and non-surgical approach to hair rejuvenation. I decided early the following year to undergo FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplantation to fill in the thinning hair at my temples.
I was surprised by how quick and easy the entire process was. I slept, watched movies on our office iPad, and listened to praise music throughout my treatment. Even after my treatment I was very comfortable. I had no trouble sleeping, had minimal pain and swelling, and was even back to work the next day. I still can’t believe it’s been 4 years since I had the procedure! I loved my first procedure so much, that in 2013, I decided to have a second FUE transplant procedure to restore my thinning eyebrows. The amazing thing is that you would never know I had ever had hair restoration. So many of our patients are completely taken by surprise when I share my story with them. I am truly so happy I made the decision for myself to have both procedures. It has helped restore a more youthful appearance to my hairline and brows that I absolutely love.
My results are amazingly natural and I’ve continued to have fantastic growth over all these years, especially as I’ve continued our post hair transplantation maintenance protocols. I encourage you to schedule a complimentary consultation with our trained medical professionals if you’ve been considering hair restoration. Let us go over options with you and develop a comprehensive treatment plan so you know all your available options.
