Hi David;

On those late nights spent researching on this wonderful site, i have come across many of your posts and read your story. Although this is the first time we are conversing, i feel like i already know u.

Thanks for your input into this forum, and for doing a good job moderating.

Dr. Path is a true legend in my mind right now, very happy with the results.

As for the Hoff, thank for the compliment ( i think?)

Cheers

JF

I am from AUS myself and I had considered Dr Path as one of my first options. Would you have any idea if he also performs the FUE technique and how experienced he is at this technique?
MoeyK;

Thanks for taking the time to post and encouragement with your kind words.

In my research i didnt come across any FUE performed by Dr. Path, nor did I ever speak to him about it, so i dont know if he does but if i was gambling man i would say that he doesnt. Best to drop him an email or check his web site though.

Is there a particular reason you want to pursue FUE? I can certainly understand why people would choose FUE over FUT but personally with the loss that i had and the results that i was after, FUT was the only option for me.

I have to say you are on the right track though, as a fellow aussie, that you are looking outside of Aus as there are no quality work being done here.

Let me know if i can answer any questions mate.

Cheers

JF

Hey JollyFolly,

The main reason I want to do FUE over Strip is because of the scar. I do understand that both methods cause scarring, FUE creates white dots which are barely visible and Strip causes the line across the back of the head.

I just feel uncomfortable knowing that there is the potential for the scarring from the strip surgery to turn out bad and stand out! Id prefer to be balding then to have a scar on the back of my head. I understand there is a new method of closing the scar.

In your own opinion, do you believe if I visit a doctor at the top of the tree in strip, that the scar would be barely visible? Its so frustrating this whole hair issue lol.

Yeah I will definately be going out of AUS for surgery. I cant believe the prices that surgeons in AUS charge when they dont even have a repuatation.

Hey MoeyK;

I can certainly understand your concerns regarding scars from FUT. I know i pondered about it for hours. But i was confident in Dr. Path's work so for me it never came back in to my thoughts as an issue, i was more concerned about yield and if my physiology would be suited for a good result.

I believe that with a top surgeon the chances of a better outcome whether it be scar size or yield or a natural looking result increases. Hence why it is so important that you research as much as you can and pick a doc that is not only highly recommended on this forum, but also a doc whose work you think looks good and would suit your physiology. A doc who has the skills and experience to make your outcome a good one given your pattern of loss and other individual factors unique to you.

I had another haircut yesterday and cut the back with a 6 guard and the sides even shorter, the scar is not visible at all. I just hope the scar does not stretch over time but i was blessed with very good laxity and hope scar remains as is.

Just wondering though, what are you on the NW scale and how old are you? Your profile says that you are 23? If thats correct you may be too young for HT and if you are not on any meds perhaps it may be wise to have a look into them before you consider HT.

Hey jolly folly,

Yeah that's 100% correct. Better the surgeon better the yield outcome and scar


I've been on rogaine two years and finasteride 4 months. When you see my pictures you will 100% agree I need a HT for my hairline.


If you add me as a friend am I able to send you pictures?
That way you can tell me what NW I am cause I got no idea lol need someone's HONEST opinion.


Let me know ASAP.


Thanks.

yesterday marked the 12 month post op, how time has flown..

it is also 13 months approx. since i started meds.

here are some pics i took today.. as you can see the side shots where the transplanted hairs to the temples are not grey like the native hairs and kinda look unnatural but when i start to dye my greys again it should blend well.

I think having curly hair makes the result look even more impressive..

I don't see your face but I reckon 20 years (at least) was taken off of you after this amazing HT! And I thought you'd need more than 4K grafts just by looking at your pre-op.

As I've said before, "Wow!!"
