TheDermatologyofIndianaLogo

At the Dermatology Center of Indiana we are hugely excited to share the personal journey of our NeoGraft patient Greg Rakestraw with you. Greg is on the journey to love his hair, and he’s enthusiastic about chronicling his NeoGraft experience so that others may learn the patient-perspective through him. Greg Rakestraw is no stranger to the limelight. A veteran sports caster, Rakestraw has been a sports-talk mainstay in Indianapolis for nearly two decades. Well known and well loved by many, Greg spends much of his time in the public eye. It’s important for Greg to feel good about his hair, and to steer clear of excessive social downtime. This makes NeoGraft the perfect fit for him. NeoGraft’s state-of-the-art revolutionary technology allows for patients to have excellent outcomes with high satisfaction. NeoGraft is the least invasive procedure of its kind—no scalpel incision, no linear scar, minimal down time, and minimal discomfort. Greg can get back to doing what he loves to do.

Greg’s Pre-Procedure Blog:

One of the highest compliments I get paid in my business is being called a pro. That translates to me that this person can come in and get the job done in any scenario, and treats all of those around him with class and respect. That everyone had a good experience because that person was involved in the process. That’s exactly how I feel about the folks at the Dermatology Center of Indiana and NeoGraft as I prepare to change my look, and more specifically  my hairline. I’ve been working with Dr. Scott Guenthner and his great staff now for over a month in preparation for the big day. And that big day is taking nearly 3,000  hairs and more importantly, hair follicles, and moving them a little further north on my scalp.

In radio we have these things called coverage maps that show where your station’s signal is the strongest, and how much ground it covers. Well, the coverage map of my head has been resembling a donut for quite some time. With the Dermatology Center of Indiana and NeoGraft, I now have a chance to do something about it. All it costs me in terms of time is missing one day of work and one night of basketball games. I’d say that’s quite the return on investment of my time.

The staff has been wonderful to work with, and has put me at ease the entire way. I’ll head to the Dermatology Center of Indiana first thing Friday morning, and I do so without any nerves or trepidation about the procedure. I simply can’t wait to love my hair again, and the early steps of the journey have me feeling this way thanks to Dr. Guenthner and his great staff.

Follow Greg’s journey with future blogs and photos as he travels his way through his NeoGraft journey at the Dermatology Center of Indiana.  NeoGraft offers great opportunities for both men and women to address the growing need from hair loss.

Greg’s Day #14 Post-Procedure Blog:

The journey to loving my hair again has taken its most important step. I’ve had my NeoGraft procedure. I got to skip work on a Friday, which is never a bad thing. I was awake and alert the entire time, listening to some music, answering e-mails and texts, even made a few phone calls while taking a break for lunch. I was at home in time for dinner, but more importantly for me, back at work on the air the next morning. Called a basketball game that afternoon, and was back on camera less than a week after the procedure. And now just over two weeks out from the big day…there’s growth. Lots of it. I now know how a beautiful woman feels, because no one ever looks me in the eye. Instead of checking out my curves, they go to the top of my head amazed at how much has changed in just a matter of days. Maybe it’s time for you to make that change. Log on to indyneograft.com to see some before, after, and in-progress pictures of how it’s going for me. Better yet, call for a FREE consultation with Dr. Scott Guenthner.

Greg’s 1 Month Post-Procedure Blog:

I don’t think the process of growing new hair counts as a 12-step program. Far from it. But certainly the journey for me, although it’s been less than 5 weeks, has been one that’s happening in stages. There was the lead-up to the procedure, getting comfortable with what was about to happen, meeting the staff, etc. There was the full-day event that was my NeoGraft procedure, and the quick turnaround time to getting back to my busy work and social life (OK, just work) in the 24 hours that followed. And then there has been the slow but steady rate of growth in places that haven’t seen hair on my scalp in years.

Now we’re in the questions phase. As in everyone is asking me about it. They hear the spots on the radio, and they see the developments and changes in my appearance. I get phone calls from friends asking about what I say in the commercials, and whether it’s true. The answer is . . . every word of it. Most of the questions I get are from people that are thinking about having it done themselves.

My response. . . what are you waiting for? It’s your own hair. There’s no scarring involved. If I wasn’t blabbing about it all the time on the radio no one would know that I’ve had any sort of hair work done, unless you knew me beforehand and knew how the light would reflect off the back of my head, and more and more off the top of my dome. That’s not the case anymore. Any other questions? Hit me up on Twitter @GregRakestraw, and I’d be happy to chat with you. Or better yet, call Dr. Guenthner. Just don’t wait as long to get this done as I did. There’s no time like the present . . . to start loving your hair again.
