Keep cool xadiohead. If you will start thinking now about your future result then it will be a very hard time for you. The only one answer that we got from asmed is still: waiting, waiting, waiting.
@abysmoThanks for sharing your post. I will follow your further progress
7100 grafts look like too much. Was that performed in one session ? I do not think the guy needed 7100 grafts. Also with that amount the result should have been more dense and consistence especially at the back. Unless half of what has been transplanted have been lost.
Gone through this thread and struggling to work out what has happened here what with things seemingly going well and then suddenly thinning in the transplanted area where there seemed to be little native hair.
Think you should be having a few consultations with some of the top surgeons to firstly work out what exactly happened with your first surgery in their opinion. Personally, would be inclined to get the opinion of the top surgeons from North America i.e Konior, H&W etc and maybe some of the ones based in Belgium.
Not sure how many grafts you have left after the first procedure but they need to used extremely wisely and for that reason, I'd probably only consider the elite surgeons who pretty much do all the work themselves even if it costs more. Again, think it's advisable turning to someone like Dr Konior if you are considering another procedure.
Even though your crown is thinning, focus should be on the frontal area and really think getting back on finasteride would be good idea in your case (maybe try experimenting with dose if you've suffered sides in the past) to try and stop the crown from getting worse. How old are you?
So here I am after many years of research I have made my mind up to get my HT done from Dr Pradeep Sethi and Dr Arika Bansal at their Delhi Centre on 24th April.
Apologies in advance I can’t keep this post short because I have been one of the silent readers on this forum for many years and now, I think it is time to share my experience with others. I know there are many people out there like me who are reluctant to travel to India from UK. I hope they get some inspiration and confidence from my post. It took me many years to make up my own mind to get my HT done in India there several factors like long travel time, cost and skills of doctors etc but now I feel there is one Centre out there in India which produces world class results within. I am saying this because I have spoken to lot of their patients in last one and half years and few of them have even posted their results here on this forum. I also know lot of celebrities got their HT done from Dr Pradeep some came out in open and shares their experience and some doesn’t want to for obvious reasons.
I have known Dr Sethi and Dr Bansal for more than one and half year now. Spoken to them several times about my concerns and questions and they have my answered my question without getting frustrated. When I first started following them on their YouTube channel they were not even recommended here on this community at that time. I used to think if these guys are so good how come Bill and his team have missed it. I am glad Bill has found them and recommended here because this has given me some confidence that I was on right track and given us more options within India. Even after Eugenix got recommended I waited for their patients to post their results here before I finalized them because personally, I trust the results shared by patients more than posted by clinics. I have compared Eugenix results with other clinics within India and I don’t see any doctor producing FUE results which is equivalent to the results they are producing. Some can disagree with me, but this is my judgement. I have also seen results from doctor who are recommended here and produced some bad results, but I guess every doctor has produced bad results occasionally and it could be due to various reasons.
Important notes to fellow HT candidates:
Do your research contact the clinic speak to their patients and once you are confident then make up your mind because that is what I did. I have not found any negative results from Eugenix yet. Don’t be put off by negativity surrounded on forums. This is public forum where anybody can post anything about clinics. This happens lot in India because of competition. I did see one negative post from one forum member recently which has put doubts in my mind. I have just called Eugenix and clarified what has happened I am satisfied with their response. We should always hear stories from both sides. Guy who has posted these comments didn’t had surgery with Eugenix but decided to share someone else experience because he himself has chosen different surgeon. I don’t believe in justifying my reason why I have chosen Dr Pradeep Sethi I will post my results here and will do my results do the talking. I can also go on about other doctors and clinics and criticize them why I didn’t shortlist them for my own surgery but I don’t think it is ethical. If my results are not good, I am happy to take criticism and accept blame. I am not sure what was the motive behind him writing negative comments about other clinics. Anyways this post is not about him or others this post is about my own surgery.
Little bit about myself
Norwood Scale: 3
HT planned for frontal area
Grafts recommended by Drs: 2500-3000
Surgery Date: 24th April 2019
I will try to post my update every month along with my pictures and will continue to share my experience about Eugenix and surgeons to keep this community up to date. Even though I feel I have made the right choice I am bit nervous that how my results will turn out because for doctors I am just another patient but for me it will be life changing experience.
I will continue to post my update to help fellow candidates and I look forward to seeing your comments and feedback. Happy to answers questions about my experience after my surgery.Long way to go.
