  1. Correct. But for other NW6 observers who don't see the transformation on this thread as a good result, hair transplantation is absolutely not for them. This is an example of a very good result - and still, IMO, with the potential to improve up to 12-18 months, and furthermore so, with a second pass down the line if OP desires, to add to density with an extra 1000-2000 donor scalp grafts.

  2. You If you would have come up with ONE more....you could have made it THE 10 HAIR TRANSPLANT COMMANDMENTS! Which would make you a Moses of sorts.

  3. Most ethical clinics wouldnt consider you a candidate at 20. I believe 25 is the youngest most are willing to consider Hair loss is progressive and incredibly unpredictable at your age, and it would be a tragedy to commit to surgery at this stage only to spend the rest of your 20s trying to play catch up with an unreliable donor and continued recession. Give the medication 12-18 months to see if it works. Take photos every 3-6 months, same lighting conditions/same hair length so you can monitor the progress. If you are self conscious about your hair loss you can try using conc

  4. I see much talk about the dreaded ugly duckling phase, and how you shouldn't expect to see results until 4-8 months depending on the patient, but how long does it take to return to baseline? As far as ugly duckling phase goes, doesn't that only affect the transplanted hairs? So after say 3 months, wouldn't your non-transplanted hair have grown to a decent length again where you can rock a normal hair style, and cover up the transplanted area if need be?

  5. BHR clinic and Dr. Bisanga are excited to be able to announce upcoming consultation dates in the United States. In an effort to stay accessible to all of his patients, Dr. Bisanga will be in Princeton, New Jersey on October 26 - 30. These dates present a great opportunity to have your hair loss examined including donor density measurements, check for miniaturisation, hair characteristics and hair grouping, potential future loss, candidacy for surgery, design, graft numbers etc...Consultations have limited availability and so we would encourage you to reach out and inform us of your interest at

  6. Haha, It's a good question. From what I've seen so far he is very caring and thinks long term. Who knows if he would do whatever you ask him to I've been thinking about the same when I was doing my research. The main problem with Dr. Ferreira is he has quite a lot of "time on tissue", but he was/is working for other clinics. He can't take his work from there and present as his own due to copyright infringement. For example right now he is still working some time in Madrid @ Dr. Jose Lorenzo clinic, thus any job he has done in there doesn't belong to him. He is at the point where he i

  7. I've asked Dr. Ferreira if he thinks I would benefit from temple work to which he said he don't think I would need this at this point. I've been chatting with loads of people since I've posted my original thread and/or my YT videos. As you can understand it's very difficult to find any information on Dr. Ferreira online, so people are questioning as well. Recently one guy I've been in touch with had his HT done (around 3 weeks ago) with Dr. Ferreira where he had reconstructed temples. Early to say of course, but It's been done.

  9. He’s posting as an individual and not as Eugenix. There’s nothing wrong with what he said, he’s allowed to post for himself, just as I express my own opinions.

  10. You are getting good advice here. 20 is far too young. The odds of you regretting surgery if you do it now are very high.

  11. I would advise against any procedure at your age. Give it a few more years, and in the meantime use concealer.

  12. It's a very subjective question on a number of criteria. Regarding shock loss, No. of grafts extracted/implanted, Size of recipient zone Size of donor extraction zone Volume of hair in or around recipient zone, Quality of native hair (miniaturising or not) Patient physiology Surgeon skill level Arguably type of HT (FUT v FUE) the list goes on. Regarding 'Back to baseline' - thats largely dependant on the patients natural speed of hair growth. There is evidence that certain vitamins, PRP, LLT and minoxidil can help speed up growth and 'bring in results earlier' -

  18. Congratulations! The work in the recipient looks pristine and the donor looks completely untouched. Excellent choice of doctor.

  19. I get it....I had your same attitude....but take it from me, a guy who rushed in to surgery with a doctor not recommended here with patient posted results and ended up with disastrous results and had to then come on here looking for help from an ethical doctor to fix those issues. If I was dead set on doing this surgery and I just waited for my surgery with a great ethical doctor I would have saved time, money, and a lot of stress. the fact that you think that worst case scenario you will just need a touch up tells me that you, just like me didn’t do enough research into how detailed this

  21. Never heard of this clinic, but so many things wrong. First, your age, you’re too young. Second, you haven’t given finasteride enough time to work.

  22. @Taken4Granted I wouldn't worry about the one red area. Probably just a bit of excess blood/coagulation factors that accumulated after you left the office. Worse case one graft may have become dislodged but will not have any effect on final appearance of the restoration. It's a very emotional journey and there will be times you get discouraged, especially during the ugly duckling phase. Just remember you chose a great surgeon and the end result will be worth the wait. Halloween would be a bit optimistic in my opinion. You may have a few random sprouts but don't get your hopes up. Since this is

  23. Let me add my 10 Cents here. I was 63 (last year) when I decided to have a hair transplant - now I'm 64. Although I wouldn't describe myself as a person lacking self-esteem, I have a university education both graduate and post-graduate and am successful in my profession but it certainly bugged me every now and again that I was (going) bald, so I decided quite early on to look after the parts of my body that I could influence myself - this included fitness in the form of regular running and some weight training as well as paying attention to what I eat and what I wear and guess what, it worked

  25. It's true that I do not have any medical license, and that my opinions are simply my views and clearly not medical advice...this is why I include a disclaimer at my forum signature on every post...and also why I routinely recommend that individuals seeking help should see a licensed physician (ideally in person) who is experienced and skilled in treating their hair loss...someone with a proven track record. Having said that, I do have credible experience (through past employment) working in this field in the clinical setting...I started researching this field in 1980 and have spent 4 deca

  26. 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

  27. Why would anyone encourage someone to go to a hair mill? Do you really want to be the 20th patient on the table after a 12 hour workday? Playing Russian Roulette with not only your donor but your life as well? Doctors and techs are people too, they make mistakes but this is easy to avoid.

  28. Sit down, young feller. I'll tell you a story - it was, I reckon, the summer of 09 and me and the Missus wuz havin' a homemade brew on the porch and she squints at me and sez "hey Old Man, the sun reflectin' off yer head is hurtin' my eyes". Well, Lordy, the light bulb went off and I figgured it was a sign from above. Bout then a young fella names Bosley sheweed up and after some discussion I shot him dead right there and thought "There's gotta be better Follicular Transplant fellas than that snake oil salesman!" Then I discovered this hear website and my eyes were open. So at 64 I got

  29. Hallo Guys, today I had my HT with doc Pekiner in Ankara. I went to the clinic, met the doctor, we designed my hairline, shaved my head, got anesthesia and the extraction started. After some extraction, the doctor says "your grafts are too short, in telogen phase. sometimes doing nothing is better than doing something". I have "nice hair" and the doctor said that, considering my donor area, the transplant could destroy my image. He stopped the operation after extracting 170 grafts. He said I could put that in the crown area but I refused because I didn't want stop training for
