Default Hair Transplant very soon, need help and advice

Hi,

I am in Thailand with my wife and had my consultation today for an operation booked this Sunday (4 days away). I took a limited time promotion at Masterpiece Clinic which does 3000 grafts for 89000 baht (about $3800 aud) and they have done over a thousand patients so it was a good offer. However at my consultation today the Dr said I only needed 1200 grafts to cover 24cm2 in front of my receding hairline. This bothered me when he rejected blending hair past my hairline as it is thinning and looks much less than his machine calculated at 125 hairs x cm2. I will post pictures of my thin hair soon of this very soon to confirm this with the viewers here.

With the operation only a few days away I wish to know i anyone reccommends using the remaining 1800 grafts which is part of this promotion or listening to Drs advice? Thanks.

What it looks like is not relevant to what it is. The numbers do not lie. Assuming your hair has the average per FU for Caucasians of 2.2 or 2.3 hairs each, your average existing density is roughly 56 FU per cm2. Anyone that is going to attempt to thicken this area would need to shave the recipient and many clinics do not do this. If a clinic is saying no, they are doing you a favour because they know that the chance of permanent shock loss is quite high, due to transection of the native hair. One should never insist that a clinic perform a procedure that they are not comfortable with because it will be you that will ultimately pay the price.

This forum has over 180,000 posts and 12,000 before and after pictures and not one about Masterpiece Clinic by any of those thousands of patients. Hmmm?

I think you should ask if anyone has heard of them or recommends them - not asking about what to do with the extra 1800 grafts.

This website recommends two (2) good surgeons in Thailand and Masterpiece Clinic is not either.

Thanks for response.

I should note that my Follicular Unit is much lower per cm2 in frontal area. (As can be seen in picture). I am confident that incisions can be made around the native hairs as I can visually see this and my hair is see through in the frontal region from 2-3 feet away under any light. (And has been for a few years so hair will not grow back on meds).

Masterpiece Clinic does have a website where they have many reviews, however being prominently for Thai, I would never be able to do this without my wife helping translate. Luckily the DR does speak English.

Happy to update results, but will only go through with it if the Dr agrees to do an extra 300-400 inbetween native hairs in frontal region. I can't see the point of bringing forward a hairline when it is seethrough behind, it defeats the purpose I believe.

The hair transplant went very well. I had 1500 grafts done over about 30cm2 with another 100 carefully placed into noticible thinning areas behind hairline. I would post pics but my photos taken from the phone arent accepted within size limit on this forum strangely.

Wow. Photos attached this time.

My only hope now is that given my natural fine hair, there will be enough grafts per cm2 to make the hairline strong.

Really sorry mate but this is awful work. Looks like you maybe got 6-700 grafts at best. In all seriousness I would be considering the fact that you might need repair work in future if it looks particularly unnatural. Consult this site among other research to find surgeons who do good work.

Hey Jean, how about you take your opinion and go to hell with it. You don't know what you are talking about and you sound in no way supportive for this forum. The count was 1574 grafts, your expecting they lied to me and put their whole hospital at risk.
