People come from all over the world come to Tucson to have surgery with Dr. Sharon Keene, American Board of Surgery Certified, and the immediate past president of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. She is well respected not only by her patients, but also by her peers. What do patients have to say about their hair restoration procedure with Dr. Keene? Read on.
Tom H., from Denver, Colorado:
“Probably the most obvious benefit from hair transplants was an increase in self-confidence. It was really nice to wake up each morning looking at my own hair again. It was quite difficult to keep from staring into the mirror!
Probably the most unexpected benefit was the positive comments from friends and family as to how good I looked, and how young I look. I had numerous friends, and people I really didn’t know that well, comment on how young they thought I was. I am now 37 years old and most people guess my age at 29 or 30!”
R.C from Phoenix:
“I am taking this opportunity to tell you how very pleased I am with my recent hair transplant surgery. For many years I was bothered by my hair falling out and thinning. By the time I was 28 years old, I had quite a receding hairline. It bothered me enough to try to seek some sort of remedy.
At first, I went to a hair specialist and had some hairpieces made. The glue was bothersome, and I always felt as though everyone could tell it was a wig (which I’m sure they did). I couldn’t go out in the wind, do sports, or go swimming with this wealth of hair on top of my head.
My next adventure was to try transplants. I had it done several times … When all was finished, I had little clumps of hair around the top and back of my head and it was pretty obvious that I had had transplants. I was so discouraged that I gave up on trying anything else, and continued to always wear a hat to hide these transplants.
Years of dissatisfaction had gone by and my wife was well aware of how I felt. She took it upon herself to find you through a friend in New York and we made our first appointment with you. My first thoughts were not to bother with this problem again. I was much older (in my 60s) and it was, what I considered, somewhat expensive. I also felt that I was being vain in thinking about this at my age. My wife encouraged me to go ahead with the surgery and I agreed to have 1500 transplants done.
… Healing was quite rapid and the hardest part was waiting six months to see any growth. I can’t begin to tell you how different I feel about myself. I feel I can go without wearing a hat, the old transplant clumps are all blended in and when I comb my hair, I feel like there is something there.…Thank you Dr. Keene. Your recommendation from others is not exaggerated. You really are a WHIZ.”
C.W. from Phoenix:
“I wanted to thank you and your staff for all that you have done for me. I will never be able to express to you how happy I am with the results of my surgery. I can’t believe that a year has passed. I find it amazing to look at pictures and not recognize myself in them. I remember being apprehensive, and in fact I almost backed out the day of my surgery, what a mistake that would have been. It was such a simple procedure, and not one of the things that I was apprehensive about came true. I sure was one of your most skeptical patients. You made a believer out of me. This has changed my life and given me a new feeling of confidence.”
Henry G. from Tucson:
“…Knowing what I do today, I would fly to China to have Dr. Keene perform the surgery!…The hair surgery results have boosted my self-confidence and self-image. I have been told that I look 10 years younger. When I speak at conferences I am not concerned with what people are thinking about my bald head. They probably were thinking nothing of it but to me everyone was focusing on my looks (bald head) rather than the content of the lecture….If the cost were twice as much I would do it all over again without hesitation.”
E.C. from Tucson:
“What a great change it was to actually look forward to looking in the mirror each day and finding NEW HAIR! In less than six months my looks and attitude have done a 180 degree turn around. My self-confidence has grown incredibly and I am now more comfortable with my looks.
I used to avoid cameras, mirrors, meeting new people, and always grabbed a hat as I walked out the door. Now I never wear a hat and look forward to going out. I feel like a new man, like I’m 21 again. My dating has increased by leaps and bounds also. That alone has made it worth it! The “Bald” jokes have gone away, and I even feel like people accept me more…Once I saw the results of your patients, I knew this was what I had been waiting for. I’m glad I waited until I discovered you and your procedure. It made all the difference to me and every day I reap the rewards from a fantastic procedure. My life has really taken a great change for the better!”
