My first attempt to address my hairloss was with a product called scalpmed, a minoxidil-based formula that may have slowed the problem but was definitely not the miracle cure I'd invested my hope in. I decided that I needed to read up on what was causing my hairloss and what my options were.I found tons of information and people's personal experiences in hairloss forums. It became apparent that transplantation was my best bet for restoring my hair. I began researching the procedures and looking at other people's transplant results, and took note of those I saw from the Alvi Armani Clinic. Patients were achieving some consistently amazing results and I was especially impressed with the hairline work. Even better was the option of FUE hair transplant which wouldn't leave a scar and was much less invasive than traditional strip surgery.

10 Month Progress

I'm now just over 10 months and am really quite thrilled with my hair. I haven't had a hairline this full in years! A quick overview, At around 2 weeks I was almost completely back to normal other than some redness in the recipient area. The grafts had all shed at about a month out and the donor area had become almost completely undetectable. Right around three months I was very excited to see new growth coming in, and every month since has shown a marked improvement over the last. I saw a lot of growth from months 6 to 10 and things are actually still improving. I get comments and compliments that I look younger and healthier now, and it feels great to have confidence in my hair again.

10 Months


Here are some pictures of me at 10 months. Looking at my before photos below I am still amazed at how much of a hairline has been created from what I had before which was nothing. My hairline now is very full, so far I am really happy with it.

I didn’t Feel a Thing during My Alvi Armani FUE Procedure

I was always worried about my loss but what restricted me from getting a surgery was the fear of pain during the procedure. The photos I saw over the internet assured me of a surgery with maximum results but they cannot describe the pain or painlessness of a procedure right?

Searching for a painless FUE procedure, I found Alvi Armani by stroke of luck. Dr. Alvi Armani was in charge back then, and he assured me that the procedure will be painless and right he was. FUE surgery is actually painless. Local anesthetics will numb the senses so during the procedure I actually didn’t feel a thing.
