You can pinpoint the time when the surgeon tried to be more helpful, but actually did the guy a disservice 8:00 in the vid. It doesn't appear he emphasized just how important post-op care is. I am also surprised how little emphasis the doc placed on raising blood pressure with working out. You're right @options, this will be an interesting case for: How important is post op care? Does it really make that big of a difference? Does sun-damage do any damage to the hair or only the scalp?
Great post @CosmoKramer
I also found out that Jeffree Star, the makeup/youtube celebrity also documented his HT. I love that its easy to explain my decision by pointing to a recent success story, rather than trying to explain from scratch.
First of all, @Dr Blake Bloxham is the MVP with the response!
I agree with looking into using body hair as a supplement to whatever HT you ultimately go with. If I were you, to help you decide FUE v FUT, I would look at similar demographic patients and what hairstyle you would wear if you had the hair for it. There are definitely pros and cons to both procedures, but the scarring with FUE really is minimal, and less noticeable while FUT may (potentially) get you better HT results. I think the advice Dr. Blake mentioned about "unpredictable curving" is something you should pay attention to. Address the issue with all docs you reach out to.
Your case is a little more complicated than others, so it is imperative you spend that much more time researching and collecting information.
This is a horrible thing to say to someone considering its completely unfounded, to believe this you have to have very poor skills of observation when looking at post-op results. Surprising considering how long you've been here, this comment says more about you than it does the OP.
I've had others mention the same to me about this surgeon but few seem to want to openly admit it for whatever reason. The density placed in this case and others by him is visibly significantly less than any of the top surgeons. The damage to his donor is very clear too, and placement angles of grafts do not look precise.
Neb clearly has a good sense (better than most here) of observational standards, HnW certainly a top notch option for future repair work also and I'd trust them to clean up the mess.
My questions is very centric and basic to solve my case (see last topic: fue or fut for me):
As a patient or as HT specialist what would you do or recommend: 1600 FUE GRAFTS OR 2300 FUT & FUE GRAFTS for a 42 year old hispanic man with a 55 to 60 graft density in 5 to 6 Norwood focussing 1300 or 1800 grafts on the crown and the rest to cover frontal density??????????????
Note: if the doctor cannot get more than 1600 for getting something for the front then use that 1600 for the crown.
Thank you !!!!!!!!!!!
