Sisters, I am new here. I am a South Asian woman, and I started losing my hair in my early 20s. At 31 I had one hair transplant procedure (about 400 grafts) and I had permanent shock loss and really came worse. Although now I cannot be sure because my loss is quite severe for my age. Seven days ago I had another procedure. I researched the doctor, and I flew out to his office (across the country). I am still in the in-pain, very-swollen, scabs-itch situation. I see that there are some women here who have had hair transplant procedures, and I really need both practical and emotional support as I start this journey forward. I have many questions, so if I can get some help, I will appreciate it. Also, if there are women who are interested in hair transplant, I will be happy to chronicle the procedure for you. It is not what it is advertised it to be--it is a surgery and not as simple as those Bosley ads make them out to be. Peace.
