Peterson, who lives in St. Petersburg, Fla., lost his hair after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and underwent a hair transplants at age 30.
The transplant took place in October and Peterson, now 50, was a happy camper.
“It was a little nerve-wracking because you’re like, ‘Is this a joke?’,” Peterson said.
“I was really looking forward to the day.
I was excited.
I knew that I could still be a productive part of the world.”
Peterson was one of the first people to receive the hair transplant.
After five years of being a regular patient, he was finally ready to give it a go.
But it wasn’t until Peterson went back to work and looked at his hair he was overwhelmed by what he saw.
“I was shocked,” Peterson told The Associated Press.
“But I was also really hopeful and excited.
It was a big jump in my life.”
Peterson had previously lost his eyebrows and eyelashes to a condition called keratoconus and his hair was a mess.
He had to get rid of a chunk of it for a hair job at a salon.
But Peterson didn’t have time to wait for a transplant to be done and decided to try a hair transfer.
Peterson said he didn’t get as excited about it because it was a new experience for him.
He decided to give his hair a new look, and he had a lot of fun doing so.
“At first, I was like, what is this?
This is a big deal.
I don’t know how it’s going to work.
But when you see your hair back and you’re happy, it’s just a big surprise,” Peterson, a former Marine, said.
The transplant took a while to get done, but Peterson was in heaven after getting it done.

Peterson told the AP he thought he was going to be able to see his hair the rest of his life, but his hair never really came back.
“In the first couple of weeks after my transplant, I just couldn’t do anything.
I had a hair out of control.
I couldn’t put it on or take it off.
I just had no hair.
I’d have to cut it.
That was the last time I saw it,” Peterson added.
Peterson’s hair was completely replaced.
He didn’t lose any of the original colors or style of his hair.
He said it’s the first time he’s ever felt like he’s back to normal.
“When I came out of that process, I saw that my hair is back to what it was before.
I’ve got a little bit of color back,” Peterson joked.”
After I came back, it was like I was a totally different person.
I’m a much better person now.
It took about six months to get used to everything back, and now I’m completely back to who I was before,” Peterson continued.
“It’s so beautiful.
I can’t even describe it.”
The hair transplant was the first one Peterson did with a surgeon who specializes in hair transplant.
The results were quick.
Peterson’s hair regrew into a full, beautiful head of hair that has not only grown back but also feels much more natural.
“He’s just like a miracle worker, he’s so positive and he’s like an angel.
I mean, I’m just so thankful,” Peterson concluded.
“You can’t thank him enough.”© 2018 Cox Media Group.
