My first post, although a long time reader!

Spreadlocks, congrats on your success. Was this an FUT or an FUE?

Hi there ranechabria. It was fut. Having realised how unnoticeable my scar is I think I'm a real fut fan.

Pretty incredible and most important, the patient is happy. Well, I would say that you seem nearer to ecstatic, but, even better. Big congratulations. Enjoy the hair! Brilliant!

Hi, congrats your hair looks great and very natural. From the pictures, it doesnt seem like you had lost a great deal of hair though? I would be happy with what you had before your transplant! I wonder whether people who have lost more hair would have results that looked as successful as yours?

Also, are you taking medication? I would like a transplant but have been advised that I would need to take propecia or equivalent for the rest of my life and it has been shown to cause impotence and lowered libido etc. I wouldnt want to end up in a position where my hair looked good for a while and then it started thinning in other areas. Did you experience shock loss or any other issues?

Thanks.

you and I seem to be in the same ballpark beginning with our hairlines. I hope to look around the way you do when I'm at 9.5 month. although, you got nearly 1000 more grafts. Only time will tell!!

Mate. Looking at your thread I would say for the 3 month mark you are pretty much where I was if not even a bit further on leading me to think your result is gonna be equally as good as if not better than mine. You had a thousand less grafts but you covered a MUCH smaller area. You are gonna have a stormer result. Just patients now man. The good times are on the way. Just have to wait out a little

Thank you mate. I think my pre ops are pretty decieving as I grew the hair long in a way to hide the loss. The Doc Said I was performing one of the best cover ups he had ever witnessed As for greater hairloss, as long as the hair is transplanted at the correct density and the patient has the donor supply to facilitate it there is no reason it should look any worse at all. Speak to Spex maybe though as I am not a pro.

I think it's essential to be on meds to avoid any future loss. A few years ago I went on 1MG of Finestride per day and have suffered no side effects at all. None whatsoever. Since then I take my one pill each morning and I don't think I have lost a single hair since. If it continues to hold out like it has I will never need any more work (Fingers crossed). I am not sure on shock loss as I wasn't sure how much I had as I wore it long. Here is a step by step account in pictures of my pre ops, 2 wekks, 1 month, 2 month, 3 month etc. etc.

Quality job Spreadlocks, very impressive! Make no wonder your over the moon with it. I'm 2 weeks out also with Dr Feller and if I end up with a result half as good as yours I'll be more than happy!
Enjoy your new hair and new confidence!

Have you made a thread mate? You got Pics. I am sure you are gonna have a great result. You have chosen a great doc. ALl the way through I second guessed everything. The procedure, the doc, the hairline, the meds, the scar. etc. etc. etc. I am now 100% sure I made the right choices and it looks like you have too

I've got a thread on here somewhere man, I'm new to this and not great with computers either!
I got 2000 grafts in the hairline and frontal thirds and I agree with everything you said about Feller and Spex, they are like Batman and Robin of the transplant world, saving bald people!
