Another 8,000-10,000 grafts left in the tank?? Wow, that would have to be some kind of record! How was your experience with FUE compared to FUT?

I had fue with a uk butcher but got lucky the grafts grew well most others weren't so lucky with him. However he did push a graft into my skull then left it to infect but could be worse. At the time fue and a short marine hair cut with a good illusion because the sides were so short changed my life for about 5 years I'm glad I did it even though I was only 25 at the time.

Not sure but if I used all my grafts it's got to be close to a record but doubt I'd go that far. I'm sure there's a few people with baggy stretchy scalps mines not particularly stretchy mainly baggy I put this down to the fact I've been boxing since I was 7 where I cut and gain weight fast I usually cut 3 stone in 8 weeks for a fight or because I lay a lot with my arm and hand supporting the back of my head which could be accidental scalp exercising. .

Yes that's the main thing we're all here for the life changer I don't shy away from events and stuff when having bad hair day anymore.

Strangely after this latest op I've felt zero stubble but now at nearly 7 months I'm feeling loads does anyone have a theory of why this is as I felt stubble at 4 months the op before last? I assumed I couldn't feel stubble because my hair is obviously thicker this time blocking me touching the scalp but it can't be I hope this is a late growth spurt as this could get affro status.

congrats , what a tranfrormation, u look great, i cant believe you went to a nw5 diffused in 6 months thats such a short period of time, , and have over 8000 grafts implanted, and still have 8000 grafts in reserve, that amazes me,im happy for ya, the combo of meds and hts truly made a difference for you, did you fear you would lose more hair when u started meds ,since you were losing hair at such a fast pace.congrats to hasson and wong as well.i just looked at the after picture and i still cant believe it ,WOW.

I was so hurt by hair loss at such a young age that I was willing to gamble what I had by going on meds, I'm the kind of guy that doesn't wake up in a nightmare I fight through it and try get my self out of sh@t so I did the same in real life. However I did lose hair in my crown from minoxidil that never grew back hence the reason for having the 1000 graft fue session when I was about 25.

The hardest decision I've had to make is gambling the hair I had when Dr Hasson worked on me but Jotronic told me it wouldn't be a problem Dr Hasson would shave my hair down and could easily work around my existing hairs even with a 5300 graft session I took his word and as usual he was correct to be honest I wouldn't of believed many other people than Jotronic but as soon as he told me I was well up for it!!

Thanks hairthere, you may be able to give me some advice my hair is curly like yours but is quite frizzy have you played with styles? I've found if i let it grow out it still looks short but curls and covers more ground with longer hair my hair looks great forward but if i chop 2 cm off it doesn't work at all also if i brush or comb it straight it's not as effective but i need to at least comb it to get it to stand up and back.
