Urgent help?



How many grafts left in donor area ? 


What’s the least amount of grafts I can use to receive good coverage in temples ? 


Been on finsteride for 4.5 months . Progressing everywhere but temples . Not interested in waiting I want to do a conservative surgery to get thicking up temples , and I can lead the rest to treatment . 

I am 26

i had a previous surgery for 800 grafts terrible growth . Doctor used multiple techs . Not really sure they were expiernced 


i cut cut my hair lower than I usually wear so it  can be properly evaluated

Your donor density looks pretty low, but that might be just the pictures. Try and take some pictures without flash and with a shorter hair cut. I would be careful of going through another FUE surgery at this point. You don't want to thin out your donor area too much.

@Melvin-Moderator if you look close you can see my previous fue scar . Hoping to see how many grafts I have left if they work around that, also which would be better to camoflouge scar. Smp or beard hair into scar area?

Wow i've never seen FUE scars look like a strip scar before. I think beard hair would be best. However, SMP would be good if you plan on doing a zero bald fade.

@Melvin-Moderator I had dreadlocks when I had the fue done. So they shaved a small area.But if I knew what I knew now I wouldn’t of listen to that doctor at all. How many grafts do you think I have left in donor by guess? I wanted to do a 800- 1200 graft procedure for frontal. But I don’t know how many I will have down the line for future need

Moving forward don't EVER have grafts extracted from a small area. This is bad news, you need to make sure the grafts are spread out. I mean you definitely have 1200 grafts left in the donor bank. At this point it may be a good idea to go to another surgeon who can make the donor area look homogenous. Right now it looks like you got a bad haircut. Who was your surgeon?

Yates, they were terrible. I’m stuck in between choosing a fut or fue.

fut has better yield for Adrian Americans with my hair texture . 

But I think it would be hard for me to conceal the scar , especially with a part of my donor already thinning because of this bad fue scar. 

But then again I don’t want to do another fue for 1000 grafts . And have limited donor for a further procedure down the line if needed.


im stuck 🤦🏽‍♂️
