Mate it's easy Hasson and Wong hook you up with everything like flight pillow and choice of 3 hats I used the black bandana it fits over your head well without touching your scalp you forget you have it on I also took the sleeping pills they supplied me on the flight home so woke up back in England. Canadian customs know all about Ht patients because the best surgeons in the world are in Canada both times I've been they knew who Dr Hasson is they ask you why your face looks saw if it is a bit droopy and you tell them then they wave you on they're really nice I said I'd take my bandana off in public to which they said they had private rooms but they wasn't fussed about checking.

Spex thanks for all your help and advice over the years too you're proper legend pal.

Hairshopeing cheers.

Looks real good bonkers.

I have a question about your Propecia use. You note that you have been using Propecia since 2003, and have been loosing it since 1999? Were you undergoing agressive MPB between 1999 and 2003? Or was Propecia not very effective in stopping the losses?

In other words- did you maintain while on Propecia?

I went from nw1 to seriously diffuse nw5 all in the space of about 6 months in 1999 I was literally at the barbers and he told me my crown had gone in weeks I was in denial went to hospital for blood tests but it was just mpb propecia saved the rest of my hair but didn't regrow then minoxidil added a bit of vellus soft hair and I learnt how to use minoxidil as a cosmetic thickner to make it look thicker each day which helped a lot propecia and minoxidil IMO saved a lot of hair right to this day that I would of lost Dr Hasson said I had about 20000 minoxidil hairs when he checked pre Op which must have been around well over ten years.

Around 8000 - 10000 grafts Dr Hasson said. my scalp is still very visibly slack and moves around a lot, it used to piss me off having a extra scalp rolled over like a fat mans belly hanging from the back of my head as it was extremely visible even with long hair before my ops but it appears to have been a blessing in disguise.
