Getting Cosmetic Surgery – My Hair Transplant Experience

Contrary to what most people think about baldness, losing hair can be a traumatic experience for any man, especially if it happens at a relatively young age. I was no exception and found it difficult to accept my receding hairline at the age of 35. I thought I was losing my charm among women, which was a rude jolt considering I am still a bachelor. Every time I looked in the mirror or took a selfie, my bald head reminded me that I was getting old. So I finally decided to give a try to a hair transplant

After initial consultations where I was told about the procedure in detail, the doctor told me actual positions on my head where he would graft hair. He also spoke about the sedative that I would be given during the process. I remember swallowing a few tablets that he said were aimed at reducing my nervousness and anxiety. There was a painkiller among these tablets, which was a hint that the process would be a little bit painful. 

The clinic staff gave me a loose gown to wear, and they made me sit on a chair. A woman trimmed my hair using a trimmer, and someone inserted a drip in my hand. The doctor said that this drip would make it easy for him to administer any medication if it was needed. I was then taken to a bed where the transplant was to be carried out.

I saw that there were two monitors near the procedure bed.… Click Here

Finding Cool Places To Walk

Walking is an exercise that has so many health benefits that it is hard to believe. Yet, most people hardly walk more than a few steps as they have a busy schedule and use an automobile to cover distances. I love walking and try to discover places where walking is pleasurable. Besides helping in losing weight and keeping my heart healthy, walking also improves my mood instantly. Here is a list of my favorite places in Los Angeles for walking

Echo Park Lake

Echo Park Lake is one of my personal favorites. One round of this park constitutes nearly a mile or close to 2000 steps. The best part of walking in this park is the large numbers of lotus plants and their blooms that you can see while walking. Of course, you also get to see the ducks, geese, and turtles swimming in the lake as you walk in the park. This park is just a minute walk from downtown LA.

Venice Beach

Venice Beach is perhaps the best beach in Los Angeles for avid walkers. Famous for its open-air gym called Muscle Beach, walking here in a loop is quite fun. You enjoy watching all the beachgoers as well as the skaters in the skateboard park. It is an experience unto itself looking at the beautiful graffiti done by artists on the graffiti walls. You can bring your dog along with you though it should be leashed. 

Lake Hollywood Reservoir

This is a real gem even for the walkers, as many don’t know the beautiful walking experience.… Click Here
