Default Dr Nader, May 2017

After 15 or more years of thinking about it, and lots of time on this forum I'm taking the plunge. I'm 50, been on propecia (finesteride cut up) for about 20 years, and finally my genes have won. Time to fight back.

Interestingly enough, I got on propecia before they listed gynecomastia as a side effect, and have a nice scar and dead nipple because of that. Maybe I should be thankful it only affected one side..

And yes, with Dr. Nader. I got my appointment booked 2 days after my first email. Just like folks on the forum say, you have to be serious and communicate your seriousness. He has no time for lookie loos. I got through in early Feb and first available was 1 May. 1 patient per day is how he rolls.

His assessment is 4000 or so FUE grafts, and this will be done over two days.

Here are some before shots. Could be a zit or a dry spot in shot one. Both pre and post haircut. God, old age spots on my skull! F*ck me.

Plan is to keep it real short from here on out.

I'm two months away but excited, and I wanted to kick it off today with this post, wish me luck!

You'll be in good hands with Nader. I'm 5 weeks out from my 2nd Nader FUE of 1800 grafts. Everything was easy and is right on track just like last time. If you have any questions i'll try to help.

I just used info@nadermedical.com ( on website).

Key thing is in the subject line I communicated I was ready to go, and included pictures for the Dr's assessment.

I was then successful getting through on the phone to make sure the receptionist knew I was ready to go. I used Skype, and didn't ask a bunch of questions, etc.

I might have gotten lucky, but I think my attitude of "I did my research, picked you guys, now get me on the schedule" worked. And keep in mind earliest available was 3 months out.

The next day after the call I received a document with pricing, appointment confirmation and what the Dr recommended. Easy Peasy.

I will not post prices on the forum but as everyone else has noted he is quite reasonable.

good luck with your procedure, every result posted here by that doc has been good work so I think you'll be in good hands.

Feel free to share the prices tho there is no rule against as all the docs have their prices noted somewhere so there's nothing wrong with it and it may help another potential baldie find his doc down the line.

Hey "Wilkinte", your hair loss is very similar to mine when I had my surgery at age 50. I'm sure Dr. Nader will do a great job. Keep us informed on this website but if you want to see how mine turned out, check out my before/afters on MyFUEhairtransplant.com. I also explain exactly what to expect every day after surgery for the first 30 days and and then weekly updates. Go to my archives on the site to September 2012. Best of luck and happy growing. You will be very pleased 4-5 months after surgery.

Thanks for the kind word, and thanks for documenting your journey.

I hope my results are as good as yours, just hope I don't need as much narcotics as you did post surgery!

The only reason I had some pain issues is because I did NOT follow the doctors orders to take the pain meds. I thought I was a tough-guy and didn't need them. I did struggle one night for a couple hours but started taking the meds after that and had no problems. You must stay ahead of the pain and take as directed.

After my second surgery in 2015, I took the pain meds as prescribed and had no pain at all. I weened off the prescription and onto Ibuprofen after a few days.

Best of luck to you. Just remember to follow doctors orders on your prescription.
