Default 5000 Grafts w/ Dr. Luis Nader ?

Hello folks this is my firist post, thanks to the admin and everyone that helps supports the cure for baldness!!! Great job!!!

So I want to go to mexico to Dr. Luis Nader we have been emailing back and fourth for few weeks now, he has answered all my question and seem very knowledgeable. There is lots of images on this site that look promising, anyone here that had a ht with him?

Also will 5000 grafts be enough for me? I want to get a frontal, mid and back.

Hi, do you have photos with your head not shaved? That can show your donor area and the extent of baldness clearly on the scalp? It's hard to really tell from the photos you have up right now because you can't really figure out what norwood pattern it is.

That doctor you mentioned, I personally have not heard of at all. Did you see any of his work? Are you also going for FUE or Strip? 5000 Is a lot of grafts. If it is FUE, I don't think it can be done in one session.

I agree that 5000 grafts is a very large case. I hope you are intending on keeping your hair much longer because you will most likely have some scarring that may be noticable with a very short hair syle. Make sure you are aware of all the details and have realistic expectations. You never want to be in a position where you are saying to yourself I wish I would have never had the surgery or I should have left my hair the way it was.

5k grafts is a very large case for strip and especially fue. And with an unknown surgeon it's even riskier. He could be good, but why take the chance? 5k grafts will come close to depleting your donor supply: are you certain you want to gamble that on a doc you know little about?

I would only trust 5,000 grafts to someone capable of it, like Hasson and Wong. I wouldn't trust 500 grafts with someone I've never heard of, especially in Mexico. Haven't you heard about all the phony doctors down there? Don't do it!

Damn, with all the stuff you put in your hair are you like a negative NW1?

Hey Sean360. It's a VERY long time now since you had your procedure. Is there any chance of hearing from you again as to how well things did or did not go with Dr.Nader?
