Thanks for additional photos. I am still confused though.
So first pics are his before and after. Are these the only ones that exist? They do not compare to each other. One shows a recession in the temples while the other is a top view.
Third photo is again an entirely different angle. This angle is focused on the thinning crown.
I still feel like there are unanswered questions:
1. In what areas did you receive hair? Please provide post op pics.
I don't know where you received the transplanted hair, but that is the only relevant area to study. If the doc didn't plant hair there, it is irrelevant. If the doc planted hair there, but it's not growing, let's see the extent of it.
Please post comparable pics.
2. Are you on finasteride, minoxidil, or other medications? How long have you been on them? Have you been consistent with the dosage?
@det9925 That's a pretty harsh statement. There are several good docs in the US, but they are significantly more expensive. Several US docs push conservative treatments that take a full 1.5 years+ to mature. They don't want to use too much from the donor. Bloxham and Gabel come to mind. Skill fluctuates between one surgeon and another, and does not correlate to a geographic location. The docs recommended on this site are all ethical. 10 months isn't a sufficient time to judge a HT, 18 months is much better. Also, I don't know how you're judging this HT with the lack of comparable pics. You don't know where the hair was transferred. How are you able to judge?
Hey guys, I'm currently in the decision stages for my first FUT.
I'm trying to decide on these two clinics.
Advantages of Cooley
Excellent strip scar
Is there every step of the way (extraction, incision, etc).
Techs have been working with him for over a decade
Advantages of Hasson and Wong:
Tons of great results from previous patients (more than Cooley)
Well known innovators
Do both FUT and FUE and have no preference between either
Who do you guys recommend?
