  1. I won't, because I think you have your mind set already. You already disregarded every piece of sound advice in this thread because wearing a hat is hard to deal with. You're willing to risk permanent disfigurement at the chance of having one week of good hair. You're not in a rational state of mind and you have no perspective on what it would actually be like to ruin your life by overharvesting your donor area at 21 with a low hairline and shoddy surgeons.

  2. I am sure you will get the 'who was your surgeon' questions, but I would suggest we all wait for a response from a medical Dr on this or someone who has had the same artery/nerve problem. Did your Doctor give any indication of the prognosis?

  3. I'd be wary of letting them do a "touch up" if they didn't treat his donor area respectfully the first time.

  4. You might lose ground, just because you can never really sure how much the medication is doing. All the hair that Minoxidil has been maintaining will shed.

  5. Many guys experience zero sides using Finasteride. If you caught your hair loss early enough, why bother with the Minoxidil? It's annoying to apply a topical everyday when you can just take a pill.

  7. Thank you for being open about your HT experience. I think it takes balls to continue documenting something like this, even when the results appear to be disappointing. I followed you from the beginning, and you seem like a patient and optimistic guy. Please don't get discouraged. It does seem like something went wrong with your procedure, though. Your poor growth could maybe (emphasis on "maybe") be attributed to physiology, not taking finasteride, and all the other reasons that are generally given, but why does your donor look patchy and over-harvested? That seems a little harder to mak

  8. 7 months and 20 days Hey folks Hope all is well. I just wanted to post these pictures as its 7 months and 20 days. I have contacted Dr Sethi / Eugenix and awaiting feedback. If I am honest, I am feeling a bit disappointed with the growth at this stage. I have read in other forums that most of the hair grows by month 8 and after that its really very tiny progress and whatever is there at this stage, will mature further. I have also asked the clinic about the scenario where I do not achieve results and gaps are still seen at month 12, what options does Eugenix provides.

  9. @NAVI 1) his hair is incredibly short. if he grew it longer likely provide enough coverage so that sunlight wouldnt be as much of an issue 2) the result is incredibly natural - which is the most important aspect of any HT 3) most clinics would likely reject such a candidate given his higher level NW 4) every patient is different, has different goals, has a different donor. and yes it's possible the OP has thinner hair, but when you compare his before and after photos though nobody can say this result is not an absolute win. but in the end I guess it's all about expectations

  11. HAH! I would be absolutely stunned if i could get that type of hair cut. I would be content and esctatic with 5-7mm all over with consistency and no gaps tbh. I paid 1700usd for the surgery.

  12. Ayyyy the magic of Hollywood. Reminder for all of us not to unreasonably compare ourselves to celebrities and/or models on social media. They have so many tricks up their sleeves to make things look picture perfect, and if any of us had access to the same stylists, tricks, etc. we'd be feeling really good about ourselves most all of the time.

  13. Perfect. I wish you a fabulous result regardless of the clinic you choose. But ai do feel strongly that you require less number of grafts if you do decide to embark on hair transplantation.

  14. I did do 0.5mg MWF originally when I was able to buy Propecia brand name at a reasonable price. However, prices went up so I switched to proscar: more difficult to split into roughly 0.625mg. I can only judge my results on minimal head hair shedding, which has stayed low for a long time. I shed way more leg hair tbh in comparison. (body hair shedding said to be a fin side effect). You have to just go by feel in my opinion and I think you're on the right track. I think to get near optimal you need 3 times a week, ideally, at 0.25mg or above. Whatever you can tolerate. Twi

  15. @home1212 Yes, not spending an hour every damn day on concealer and buzzing techniques to stay presentable is going to be my absolute favorite part of all this. Just shower and go!

  16. Low 1000 grafts for sure, but is the risk worth it? Would it change your life significantly?

  17. Around 2,000 imo. Given your age, you’re likely a good candidate for high density. Get on virtual calls with doctors

  19. Hairline design and reconstruction is a form of art in itself. There are multiple factors involved in ensuring a natural looking hairline. At least 6 rows of singles: light in pigmentation, slow growing and thinner in calibre, are planted on the initiating point of the hairline zone. These are taken from basically the nape of the neck. With this, skilled hands, proper angles and good survival is crucial. It is not a matter of luck for an individual to have a natural looking hairline after transplantation but rather an assurity that a confident surgeon should provide. It should be an assurity a

  20. If you ever consider a revision in the future, do not go back to this doctor. The hair transplant industry in cali is pretty chop-shop still, even with surgeons that are more recognized.

  21. You should let the conditioner soak on the recipient area and gently remove the scabs. You shouldn’t have that many blood scabs by day 9. I think this will be next topic for a video, sometimes guys are too gentle, and they let the scabs linger for way too long.
