  1. This 29-year-old man was Grade 4A on the Norwood Hamilton Scale of baldness when he came to us for his hair transplantation procedure. We gave him 2407 grafts for his procedure with adequate density and coverage. All the grafts were taken from the scalp donor. He started seeing good growth and a complete change in look and by 11 months he has absolutely amazing results. He is also taking medications for his pre-existing hair.

  2. With thinning like you have - either a shorter buzz, down to a 2 or 1 guard so you have some hair-maybe that would lessen the intimidating vibe? Or maybe look into using some concealers, hair fibers like Toppik; or Dermmatch is another one that can give you the illusion of thicker hair -linking below to how to apply dermmatch by our forum moderator. You can get them on amazon, etc, you'd have to re-apply them after you wash your hair, but at least you know its just for a few more years until your 25. On the mental side, hair loss has got to be even harder for guys that are more out

  6. That’s spot on, hair transplants don’t stop hair loss, so prevention is key!

  7. There are certain cuts that help with the way your hair is. If you have a good barber they will find a style which suits. I did this for a few years before my first Ht. And I do understand how depressing it can be, I didn’t show anybody my head for years. Permanent hat on my head, even at the gym...

  8. I would add that it's a journey. You'll need to look into medications like Finasteride and minoxidil to maintain your hair and have healthy habits. A transplant is a right step but its up to the person to do the maintenance.

  9. First, see a physician and get started on finasteride and minoxidil. It sounds like you might be depressed as well. Do you have a good social support network? Please feel free to PM. Hang in there buddy

  16. I had my first transplant at 22 and it was absolutely the right decision. I ended up having to get off finasteride due to side effects but even that has not changed my considerations for the most part. The benefits massively outweigh the risks with a high-level surgeon. For someone in their early twenties I would likely recommend FUT to maximise graft numbers and suggest to anyone in that position to accept the scarring, for the vast majority a clinic like Hasson and Wong will leave you able to leave your back and sides relatively short regardless. ASMED for myself was a great choice althoug

  18. I have used this many times when needed. After x5 Hts and never had any issues. On the contrary infact it works really well. After clearing the flakes i then used baby shampoo going forward.

  19. You will not lose your grafts. They were secure after day 10. You will be fine using it. It will definitely shift the flakes.

  20. That’s the best way to do it or else you’ll be hyper focusing on it every day haha!

  21. Thanks @Curious25 Another great question. Ill be sure to ask Dr. Bisanga to discuss his thoughts on this also.

  22. It would be great to get a regular person to test their DHT serum levels first, and then after a few months of using topical fin. I would love to see if it affects DHT levels systemically.

  23. I guess you might be right... famous footballers and high profile patients should be most of his patients since there are not that many actual patient reviews around... but I dont see all those famous people posting their cases on Forums... I would presume they want it to be a secret 🤫 However, there are exceptions. I have followed Dr Couto (and all Spain-Europe based Doctors) for a long time and certainly he has done several famous footballers, at least I´m almost certain about 4 of them from what I have read on different Forums (but I´m sure there should be a lot more than 4) For

  24. The general population rarely notice mild to moderate balding - let alone a partially depleted donor zone! It's just us hyper obsessed baldies who can identify these minor imperfections - if you can even call them that, and the whole purpose of this thread was to actually point towards the community to analyse it with close up pictures! Of course we'l find something. A colleague at my work has what looks like fue punch holes all around what would be classed as his donor region - and I knew full well he wouldn't have had/hadn't had a hair restoration procedure - yet it intrigued me day

  25. Hey there, I appreciate the kind words. Me at the (2.5 month approaching the 3month mark) is better than how I was before my transplant. It is so liberating to have done something about hair loss which has taken over the past 10 years of my life. I got a lot of shit for wanting to get a hair transplant from my family... funny how they all like my results now. I'm just glad I listened to myself, instead of shaving all my hair off. Anyways thanks for the positivity!

  26. To be honest, if you are conservative in your approach - there's no difference giving a 23 year old a hair transplant, than there is a high NW in his late 40's/50's, other than the fact that the younger patient is likely to reap many more years of benefit, as opposed to the older patient who will have lived a substantiative period of time throughout his life balding, or bald. Balding at an early age tends to signal towards a higher probability of that individual reaching a higher level on the NW scale. That's literally the only reason (and rightly so) there is caution when dealing with you

  27. I echo what others have said, consult with a dermatologist asap.

  28. You need to see a dermatologist ASAP. It could be seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis among other things. Treatments usually involve anti fungals, steroids, etc. make sure to show the derm these pictures u have as well with the big flakes

  29. Yeah, I would definitely see a dermatologist about this. I have seborrheic dermatitis as well, and I've had to learn over the years what triggers my outbreaks. I know there are certain products I have to avoid, how frequently I need to wash my hair, etc. - and I also have some quick solutions when I do have an outbreak. My doctor prescribed me Ketoconazole shampoo which I use periodically and helps keep the outbreaks away, and I also have Clobetasol Propionate, which is a liquid steroid that I can apply to my scalp when an outbreak starts to get particularly bad. I've also found the raw Apple

  30. The grafts themselves are secure after approx 10 days. Anything after this time it would be the hair and not the graft. Maybe you should see a dermatologist? I have had the same happen to me. Looks like cradle cap. I used baby shampoo and also t-gel. If you look at adult cradle cap type treatments you should find something suitable. Does appear you have Seborrheic dermatitis. But it needs a expert to see it.

  31. Too many better options nearby in Europe (Belgium, Spain, Sweden) to even consider UK for a hair transplant. It will even be cheaper as well

  33. Maybe you should contact Joe T and ask if one of his other 'approved' doctors can fix it for free...
