I am interested: how can I proceed further?
Local patients should schedule a preliminary consultation with Dr. Swinehart. At this time, you may examine literature, see before and after photographs, and view a videotape. Out of town patients may send good quality photographs of the scalp, taken from several angles; the surgeon will be happy to respond to you personally in writing.
A final word
You have one final question to answer: do you want to be bald, or would you like to have hair? You should undergo hair replacement surgery for yourself, out of personal pride, and not necessarily to please others or to attempt to achieve what may not be possible in your personal or business life.
The field of hair restoration surgery has made great strides over the past few years, making aesthetic, pleasing results achievable for many patients. Future advancements will undoubtedly be achieved in the years to come. However, today's "state of the art" procedures can make cosmetic hair replacement an obtainable goal for many individuals experiencing hair loss.
Thank you very much for your interest and consideration!
James M. Swinehart, M.D.
