  4. i am having my HT on friday at same clinic, but DHI. excited that finally all the doubts if do it or not will be away
  5. Today
  6. Hello folks, Its been a week I got my HT at Eugenix. I have been loosing hairs for about 10-12 years . Started finex and minoxidil for about 2 years initially, then stopped it. Now taking it past 6 months. After seeing Eugenix good results, I had booked my HT with them. Nelson was my first point of contact and he's a great guy. Responsive and helpful. Did one video consultation with Dr Sethi and booked my appointment. Landed at Delhi a day before and was picked it up their friendly staff. There was some confusion so my HT was postponed for a day but that wasnt a big deal really. On the day of the surgery, Dr Pradeep drew the hairline and I left it on the expert to decide the hairline ( Although like everyone, I would have loved to have an little aggressive hairline but he explained, it wont look good 5 years from now) . I found Dr Pradeep to be friendly, honest and with good ethical values. Procedure was painless and was done by Dr Pradeep, Dr Shishir and the staff. Lasted for about 6 hours. Attaching the pics. One thing which really impressed me was their in house accommodation. The rooms are good sized and they provide u with all the meals and the fact that I was visiting india after a long time, I ordered whatever I was craving to eat All in all, it was a great experience and I'm hoping the results to be as good
  7. I can still see the outline of it, but it's definitely looking much better. It should continue to improve over the next few months.
  8. I just though I'd post an update at 6 weeks post surgery I have seen big improvements in the donor area and I'm fairly confident now that I will have a good final result.
  9. Good Day Gentlemen, just a few pics after all - one from the top and back before the procedure and one each afterwards as well as one after the staples - post-OP pictures were taken on day 9 (15th November) - some won't upload so I'll try a little later on Cheers to all!
  10. @Traveller99 You are right where you should be. 4 months post op is still very early in the process. Things are only just beginning. You will see some nice improvements over the next months. Sit tight and enjoy the new growth. I look forward to your month 5 photos to compare.
  11. No other possible goals, he wants everything - front and back. If a reputable doctor has suggested this, by identifying that the donor is sufficient for the first and upcoming procedures, you want a second professional opinion. I suppose no dense packing Given the young age and family history, more loss will come. Attempt first to stabilize the loss with medications
  12. @happyandsad If your concern is the curious glances of people, especially at the Istanbul airport, I can calmly tell you to stay calm, in Istanbul, especially the locals are used to seeing hundreds of people with headbands and hats on their head, many know that in Turkey you go there as well as to see the beauties of the city also to do hair transplants. Your concern should instead be to rely on certified clinicians and surgeons, there is a myriad of pseudo-clinics where, if you mess up, you could find yourself ruined for life. I can advise you to choose well so who will have to put your hands on your head and not give a damn about everything else. Good luck
  13. Let’s say my vitamins/minerals are good what else can it be? Some type of diffuse thinning? If it is diffusion hair loss any suggestions on what or how to treat this? Cause I’m almost certain now by looking at others experiences & situation it might be DUPA ); my uncle who has Down syndrome has very thin diffuse hair loss on the scalp and crown but doesn’t look bad in certain angles. and I explained my diet on my other reply above^^
  14. Why did you have to shave your head if I can ask? Cause I heard that can also accelerate hair loss. And why is it that you stopped treatment? And I’m pretty sure if you were to get on the BIG 3 from what I heard it’ll make some great gains on your situation dude!
  15. And I thank you for being here & getting feedback from you guys that’s why I’m still here asking what can I possible do to treat my case? Yeah my anxiety has been through the roof lately and my stress has pretty much been the same from the beginning of the year my arms, body, and face twitches quite a few times now like if my stress hasn’t made any progress on calming down. yeah I was thinking of getting a second opinion since my dermatologist was just doing his hourly job. I’m suppose to get my physical check and I’d be sure to bring up my hair loss & if had any correlation with any body complications I’m having. I’m honestly so scared of trying minoxidil at the moment since I’ve heard it can make your hair loss worse besides the initial shedding phase. Biotin can keep the hair i have as healthy as possible but before trying all these treatments I want like an official examination of my hair loss until i actually start a regimen for it. Glad there’s experienced people like you to give some guidance an advice before doing anything at all. No i did not have a product on my hair that’s how it gets if I don’t shower for 1 day or 2. It gets really greasy, flaky and the thinning is way more noticeable in this state. I’m saying why i don’t shower for 1/2 days just cause I heard if I over wash my hair while having dandruff it can be bad for haircare. I’ll show you a photo how my hair looks when dry BUT the appearance is honestly too good to be true due to it being like my last layer of hair density if wind were to blow my hair and mess with it... it would look like the second picture 😞 I say my diet is not the best but i try to keep it a basic & fulfilling but it’s obviously not sufficient enough in my case i need to be eating 2x times the amount of everyone else. For example I would eat like cereal in the morning before school prolly a couple snacks like granola bar or apple. I do exercise a good amount since I’m a skater around. Around lunch time I would the same hint like a sub sandwich also I get dehydrated super fast so I try to always drink water, juice, lemonade etc whenever I’m starting my day also when I’m eating. And used to get hot flashes a lot back then but now I think it’s a bit better I’ll only get 1 or 2 rarely. So far I eat okay I think but it can be way better to be honest i sometimes starve when I’m at work since I’m one of few workers at my job. Yeah i know to some degree everyone experiences hair loss at some point but I do also know that there is ways or I hope there’s is options to maintain & prevent any shedding from now on that’s why I want to get to the bottom of this problem to see if you guys can point out im going through the early stages or something... If I had started the products the dermatologist gave me i know it would of made some sort of change but i don’t know if that change will be Good if honestly don’t know what’s going on with my hair first I hope you can understand where I’m coming from... but I really appreciate you’re feedback dude! Both pictures hair is fully dry just the one above shows when my hair looks when blown by wind ..
  16. Hey all, Just wondering if anyone has been advised against a HT due to their family history? I'm late 20's, NW3, and all of my father's side, and my older brother are essentially bald. Like, NW 7's. I've been on medication for a couple of years, which has slowed my recession - although it is still ocurring slowly. Would I be unwise to opt for a transplant? I'm worried it may only be a temporary fix. Just for reference, I'm on finasteride and minox, but I know some people still lose the battle even with meds when their genetics are too stacked against them. Any general advice is appreciated, cheers!
  17. Look under a bright light...Do you see some strands finer than others? That's miniaturization of the native hair. That's hair loss. Could you be in the process of maturing your hairline as 1978matt suggested? Very likely. Unfortunately you did not post any other photos. Check family history and talk to the doctor about getting on some type of regimen to help you retain and perhaps enhance.
  18. Hey everyone, my name is Alan and am glad to be part of this forum. I was diagnosed with androgenic hairloss in my early 20's, i went trough a finasteride + minoxidil treatment for years having fantastic results until 2 years ago when i took a break. I begin to notice my hair thinning again, so i resumed my finasteride course (5mg) (i break the pill into 4 pieces and take ona piece each day), but now after 2 months of use i noticed some issues with my chest. Primarily itchy nipples and tenderness along with pain in some areas somewhere near the nipples, so i see them as chest pains. It's also not consistent, one day one nipple can be itchy, the next day could be both, no itchinness at all, or pain in either one. So should i stop using finasteride? I've read this could be a rare side effect, and after years of using it it's the first time i experience something like this. But if this is dangerous as i'm concerned there's suppousedly a chance of developing breast cancer, i'm willing to stop using it forever.
  19. You don't need a HT in my opinion. You would probably need 2 sessions a year apart to be able to get a density to match the hair you have already. Not worth the risk with such a decent hairline already.
  20. Its a maturing hairline. I'm guessing you are quite young, 18ish? The same thing happened to me in my late teens: the temples receded into a NW2/3. You wont necessarily continue balding beyond that but if there is a history of high level baldness in the family somewhere you might want to see a doctor and start taking finasteride.
  21. In response to your dandruff question mate, I take oral Min. I started on 1mg, then went to 1.5, and now I'm on a compound medication which contains 2.5mg on minox. Never had any sides or anything of the like. Though, I'm unsure which is thought to be more effective (oral or topical)
  22. So, after discussing this with him in more detail, his main goal is to mainly to restore his hairline and add some thickness to his mid scalp. Do you think he should move forward or would this just be a waste of time?
  23. My brother and I plan on going to Istanbul in January for our hair transplants. I’ve done plenty of research but I always like to hear different experiences. How long did you stay and what was the flight like on the way back? Did you get a lot of funny looks at the airport/on the plane (lol)? How was your experience overall?
  24. Yesterday
  25. According to one of your videos you had retrograde alopecia only in the nape area, however how does one have any hope of a hair transplant if they have retrograde alopecia not just in the nape but also on the sides above the sideburns as well as at the back of the head just above the FUT donor zone? This is a possibility in which case the person would be better off just saving their money!
