I'm just wondering, why were you reluctant to mention SMG at the beginning? I'm not trying to belligerent, it's an honest question.

I'm just curious as to why people don't mention the surgeon's name when they're not happy with the results. I thought it was a legal issue, but it's clearly not the case.

This was my hair grown out before surgery. The pre-op pics is a buzz cut so a little harder to see how my hair fits my face.

Hi Beaverbuzz,
Your hair looked PERFECT before your HT. I hope you get the hair that you initially wanted but I have to ask...why did you decide to risk a surgery like this?
I am so used to seeing guys who really NEED a transplant on here.
You are already where most of want to be hair-wise. I would be thanking my lucky stars if I were in your shoes.
Hope things work out.
M.

Beaverbuzz,

Your hair did look very good before the surgery, but I understand from the buzz pics that you might have wanted to shape up the temples. If your geners are good for lack of hair loss on the parents side, consider carefully how much more you want to mess with the temples.If you think that you will have not much more hair loss then maybe spare a few grafts, but otherwise, if your geners aren't good, think about leaving it alone. You looked very good buzzed and you still have that option with FUE. The more you tap that donor supply though, the more moth-eaten look you will have at shorter grades.

MAGNUMpi: Its safe to say hair loss affects us all differently. One only needs to look at hairloss forums to see people taking extreme measures to go from a NW1.5 to a NW1. Like I said in an earlier post, I actually prefer recession in my hairline; however, I wanted to tweak it a bit. The thing that bothered me the most was the asymmetric hairline. I don't think this was irresponsible given the stability of my hair and the number of grafts I needed.

Davis91: Thanks for the insight. You have made a similar comment that my brother made to me when the lack of growth became apparent. The donor area is definitely a concern of mine now as I am going to need a repair now. I was never told what my donor is like so I am not sure how much is there either.

I have stayed at a NW2ish since I was 18. I am not sure how much farther I will go; however, I do know I cant live with the way my hair is now, I am going to need to get it repaired. On the right corner it is see through. I can't even put toppik there because you end up seeing the fibers on my scalp.

Dude I cannot see anything wrong with your hair. If you think you needed an HT. I need to go jump off a building.
