Had the majority of my work done in 2008 so 11 years ago now, have changed things up a bit with procedures between to refine the hairline etc between the and now.
1) extremely happy, life changing!
2) yes, I had FUT, I’d prefer to not have it, but the choice between that and a bald head is a no brainer, and it doesn’t really affect how I have my hair
3) I’d have still done FUT
4) no hair loss since meds’ (propecia and regaine) in 2007
here is my thread in case you’re interested
I'm a 60 yr old male who's had multiple hair transplants ( HT ), with 4 different doctors. My first HT was in 1984 when the technology was in the Stone Age compared to today. As a result, some of my surgeries have been as much about remediation of large, poorly- placed plugs, transected grafts, etc, as it's been about trying to add new hair. My last HT was in 2013 with Dr. Feller. It was my first HT with him, and by far the best. He's outstanding. But now Feller has cut back on the number of surgeries he's doing. This is likely my LAST hair transplant since I have very little donor left, so i really wanted to make the right choice for a surgeon. After considering going many different surgeons my gut told me to return to Feller Bloxham. I'm going to do my HT on April 30th with Dr. Blake Bloxham, Feller's partner at Feller Bloxham Hair. I met with Dr. Bloxham last fall was greatly impressed with his professionalism, knowledge, and empathy for my situation. He estimates that he can do another FUT of ~ 1200 grafts from my remaining donor area. I'm confident Dr. Bloxham and his staff will do an outstanding job, and am really looking to the procedure.
I realize ~1200 grafts is nothing these days, but that's about all I have left for a strip. All the previous HT's have left me with very little donor area. I'll post some pictures when I get a chance. This is likely my LAST HT since I have very little donor left. Now, I have only the left side of my head ( above my ear and running towards the back of my head ) available for a donor strip. I have thinning in the middle of my scalp that runs from front to back. Dr. Bloxham's goal is to provide density to the middle front, as well as provide more density to the thinning middle that goes to back to my crown. My crown area has the thinnest coverage. I've been told many times that the front area is much easier to get better results. Dr. Bloxham plans to go from front to back until the grafts run out. My plan after this last HT is to try SMP to address the remaining lack of coverage/density that might exist. So my game plan consists of a combination of a final HT and then SMP? Have other people been in this same situation?
Thanks for letting me know.
so I am on finpecia right now ( bought 6 months supply from Dr. Bhatti's clinic after my first HT done on 18th March in India )
After my stock is finished, I anyways need to buy more supply of finastride . I live in Toronto.
Which brand name for finastride I should be going forward with ? " Propecia " 1 mg ??
I heard local doctor's prescription is required before I could buy propecia here in Canada
Hey man, I don’t mean to cause you more worry but to be very honest for the amount of grafts you got all just in your frontal third area and at 7 months there should be more there. You very likely could get another growth spurt since technically this is about 60% of the final result so I think if at the 9 or 10 month mark it hasn’t improved then the clinic has some explaining to do, it wasn’t 1,500 grafts but 4,500 so something could be off by them.
