  1. Hang in there... I've gotten on it, had the most phenomenal regrowth one could ask for. All of a sudden, life became worth living. Got off hoping finasteride would keep all my gains. Lost EVERYTHING in 2-3 months. Got back on telling myself I'd never get off. Regrew everything, confident as hell. Ran out due to being stuck abroad from COVID travel restrictions. Lost EVERYTHING in 2 months. Back on now for 1 month. Hair looks awful, depressed as hell. The last two huge regrowth periods, I was on offshore oil contracts making cash surrounded by 20 men. Never really thou

  2. I’d say the only option would be to add more grafts in order to achieve more density. Something like smp in the recipient may be possible but I doubt it would give you what you want. I’ve heard with thick haired individuals double grafts can be possible in temple points but I find it odd that only one side had them. I’d Def bring these up with them if you do decide to have a touch up with them. i find it a bit odd how a few eugenix cases where there was one guy unhappy with his donor just disappeared. So thanks for keeping us updated

  3. Supply vs Demand. There are 7000 hairs in the same area where there were 40000 once. So yes you are 100% correct - HT doesn't do magic. It just puts some hairs in the area where there's none - it's depends how much coverage is required vs how much supply you have. Simple.

  7. I think this is a pretty good result so far mate, especially for a UK clinic and with that little grafts. The donor area isn’t bad, hopefully it should improve slightly over the next few months 👍🏽

  8. Honestly, the risk with a transplant for you outweighs the reward at this time. Especially being a diffuse thinner, you'll risk shocking the hair you currently have, potentially leaving you with less coverage than before the HT. Stay on fin and wait it out.

  9. Bro I hate to say this but if you are really looking at NW 7 so young in life a HT may give you a lot of heartache and grief. Please be exceptionally careful.

  11. Aside of the fact it is just not good for you, it can have an effect on the cardiovascular system. It has been directly correlated to about 20% of deaths when it comes to heart attacks. Thus, if it has an effect on blood circulation due to the nicotine constricting vessels, it will have an effect on hair transplants. And then you have to contend with coloring of the teeth and the smell. Stick to the plan. You'll look good, smell good, and have a "commercial" white smile. Bet you will get a bunch of compliments. If you're not a candidate, (and the doctor is a straight shooter), they'

  12. Extremely happy for you. You must feel like a new man; you certainly look like one. All the best and congratulations to both you and the clinic.

  13. Incredible result really, congratulation! There is no secret: an excellent HT Dr, an excellent donor area, a very nice implantation BUT ALSO a very healthy lifestyle + Fin to perfect this result! Well done and enjoy KM90 ;) 🤞

  14. Looks good to me for 7 months, you have 5 months to go though until the final growth. It's worth remembering that everybody always wants more. Always expect to do 2 hair transplants. Often touch up sessions finish the job off nicely if needed.

  15. Hey mate. Thanks for posting the update and clear pictures. Although, there is a slight difference from your 5 month update but I think its the lighting and good/bad hair days difference I still think that your growth is really good and it suits you. Surely this will get better considering you are a fast grower. I am following your progress and look forward to your next few months . I have no doubt that it will get better. Stay positive Cheers

  17. I think it probably is an issue of length. Longer hair tends to emphasize any demarcation you might have in density and if I compare your pre-op photos to the spots you've highlighted these areas do seem to represent the areas where the native hair was all but gone. Just a couple of things based on photos: 1. The recent photos vs. the older "good" photos are comparing your hair in less favorable conditions vs. your hair in more of a "best case" kind of scenario. 2. For anybody with spots that are thinner there's a length sweet spot (transplant or no). 3. You do act

  19. I feel you have every right to be upset with your result at this stage. You've been incredibly patient, but at almost 8 months things should be looking better. Sure your recipient may show further growth and thickening, but your donor area does not appear to have been managed with great care. I do not think, however, that it was over harvested. If anything, Eugenix is very conservative and ethical in their graft estimates. I agree with another poster that you chose a slightly aggressive hairline given your pattern of baldness, but the yield in the first six rows of your hairline is subpar to m

  20. Sorry I'm a little late on posting my monthly update, but the pictures were taken on Sunday at exactly 7 months. Oddly enough, I feel like my result has regressed over the past month. There are a few places on my hairline, particularly on the left side and in the middle, that are suddenly looking quite sparse. Not sure if I've lost transplanted hair, or if this is an illusion due to my hair being longer. Haven't noticed any abnormal shedding events, and I'm a model patient (taking fin, dut and shampooing with Nizoral). Have taken a bunch of photos in all sorts of conditions - wet hair, partial

  22. I understand, I think that your hair is certainly passable particularly for your age, and you should overall be happy with your result. Could it be a little bit better in terms of yield and graft placement? In my humble opinion yes, but hindset is 20/20 and I think just as every situation in life, one should be an optimist when possible. So certainly enjoy your hair and I didn't mean to criticize the result. I am in a high Norwood situation myself and thus am concerned about yield and maximizing results, and would maybe pay a premium like with dr.wong or dr.konior to do so. But of course,

  23. I do think that boards like this tend to focus on outliers i.e. "My HT came out great!" or "My HT is a disaster!" Most patients have average donors and have average results, which look totally fine. If I was this guy, I would be happy with this result. If this guy is happy, that is the most important thing.

  24. The risk of side effects from finasteride is about 5%. I'd suggest starting off low and then seeing how your body reacts and working from there. You can also use topical finasteride. There are topical finasteride/minoxidil combo solutions as well and you won't get the systemic side effects from oral finasteride.

  25. 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

  26. Still think between 2000-3000 grafts will give you really good density. I could see the first batch of pics were taken in quite flattering conditions. The last pic shows you would really benefit from a procedure.

  28. @Tbcruz, this is looking really good! Your hairline is solid with how far along you are! Plenty of time to see some extra growth, as well. Congrats, man! I’m really happy for you!!

  29. Others may disagree, but I do not think you really need a HT. I understand you may want one, but your hair looks good to me and you risk making troubles for yourself with a HT. If you do one, as I suspect you will, be very conservative with what you have done.
