MALE VOICE: At first I was in denial. I tried to cover up the fact that I was losing my hair. I didn’t want to admit it to myself, first of all. And I tried combing my hair a different ways and it never really worked. It was always apparent that my hair was receding and there is not much I could do about it. I tried Rogaine and it really…I was losing hair mostly in the front here and Rogaine really doesn’t do anything for that. So I had to at first admit to myself that there was a problem. And then, I had to decide that I wanted to do something about it. People always ask me, was there any pain? Was it painful? And it really wasn’t. You know, there is no pain at all. Maybe some discomfort. A little bit a few days after the surgery but it was nothing like it’s, unfortunately, it’s reputation for being painful and going on for months and months and months. Everything you see here was done in one day. I came in at 8:00 in the morning and I left at 5:30. So everybody thinks, oh, you must have had months of treatment. This is all one day you are looking at. That’s what it is. I feel like I can age gracefully. More gracefully than I could without any hair. I mean, and I have a young girlfriend. I got tired of people asking if she was my daughter. And it doesn’t happen anymore.
