Just wanted to make a quick thread to let everyone know that I'm officially "retiring" my Future_HT_Doc account and screen name.

Cali,

I remember that bump! I think it was the first time in working on the forums that I actually saw a real case of a dislodged graft. For what it's worth, the image you showed will help many...

Ontop,

Yeah, sounds like you've pretty much got the idea!

It will definitely heal better than a strip scar in the sense that, well, there will be no strip scar. As long as the millimeter...

Wibbles,

We were obtaining approximately 18 FUGs per mFUE graft with the smaller punches -- which is actually the "medium" size of the punches we're experimenting with. I haven't experimented...

Lieli,

Makes sense! Like you said, both have their place and one procedure was better suited for your needs. Best of luck and thanks for sharing!

Interesting. Future hair loss treatments is a big area of interest for me. I'll take a look.

Awesome! This lady seemed like a perfect mFUE candidate; needed the yield and quality of a strip, but didn't want the scarring. I suspect she will heal very well. I think the mFUE grafts look...

Sorry if it seemed like I was trying to make this thread about FUE yield or anything like that. I wasn't. I was really just thinking out loud as I was typing.

Hi Eyes,

Altogether, you're okay. Let me explain what I mean. When we see threads like this on the forums, we -- members -- immediately think "disaster" case. This isn't what happened here. Your...

Mav,

It all depends on how systemic it goes. If topical fin stays in the scalp, you shouldn't -- theoretically -- experience any of the systemic side effects of the hormone level changes. If it...

Mav,

Absolutely not. We spend a lot of time reviewing protocol before a clinic is recommended here, and I feel very comfortable endorsing HRN clinics because of this. I wouldn't stand behind any...

Spanker,

You're right about "herd" symptoms and placebo side effects. However, there is no doubt that altering hormone profiles is serious business. I think many doctors are starting to feel less...

Sean,

I think a number of doctors actually use the NeoGraft in this manner. Without the suction feature, it's very similar to a number of motorized devices available on the market. However, many...

Unfortunately, you're right. Blocking the DHT from ever binding to androgen receptors in the follicle is the only way to truly avoid the AGA process. Like I said above, however, I think the...
