  1. Run a search here: www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/hair-loss-doctors-europe.asp It seem the closest to you that are recommended are in the Netherlands and Belgium.
  2. Welcome Stuart, you already have gotten great advice in the previous replies. I can only reiterate by saying that it is very important to do your research, this Forum has the best resources, finally I just had another HT by Dr. Siporin yesterday and am very happy, I will be posting the details very soon. Best of luck.
  3. I agree Bill, at this point it would get more readership in the Q&A section.
  4. The work looks really good and ultra refined. My hair loss is very similar to this patient, the closure looks great but I was was wondering why he did not use the tricho method.
  5. As Bill said an evaluation by a dermatologist is a good idea. I like the Revita shampoo I have been using for about one year.
  6. I never tried Nizoral but have used Revita for about one year, I like the way it cleans my hair without drying and it is probably helping, hard to say what it would do on it's own since I take 1/4 Proscar daily and I do one 20 min. laser session per week, I am very happy with it and not considering any other shampoo.
  7. Bosley is a factory assembly line. You might come out just ok in the best case scenario, more often you'll end up with problems. They are not cheaper, often they are more expensive and I am not even talking about the cost of corrective surgeries should you need them. Do not take unnecessary risks, stay with the recommended Doctors it's the only way to be sure. Where are you located?
  8. I have been using Revita for more than 6 months now and I think it has helped decrease the amount of hair I see falling in the shower, I also do laser once a week and 1/4 Proscar per day. Either way it is a very nice shampoo, one of the best I have tried so far, I found the best deal on Amazon and I buy 4 at a time.
  9. I am in a similar situation, you're right when you say more hair will help you attract nicer females, best of luck with the ladies, I mean the HT, sorry...
  10. Your pictures are low quality so it's a little hard to see. In one picture (very short) it looks like you could have diffused hair loss, on one other your hair looks longer and very dense... The first thing to do is to get better pictures IMO. Go to this great link, it has Jotronic's expert advice: http://hairtransplantmentor.com/hair-loss-photo-tips.htm
  11. Do not take unnecessary risks, stay with the recommended Doctors it's the only way to be sure. The additional travel expense (sometimes partially compensated by the surgeon) is well worth it because you'll be safe from many problems and complications.
  12. Hi J, La La Land, Great to hear how thorough you are. I also did not want to shave which was easier to achieve due to my low transplant count and it's correct that it limits somewhat the density that the surgeon feels is safe to reach without compromising too much the existing hairs. It looks like I'll be getting a final touch up which should get me to the density I am looking for, then it should be over, no more HT for me. Let me know when and who you decide on, for my part I'll be going back to Dr Siporin for this final touch. It's nice to see how well you are using the resources available on the Forum to make your decision, you will get great results. All the best, HK
  13. I am repeating my same post from your other thread: 9 consults, that's impressive!! You are making an excellent case for HT candidates and their decision making process. I would love to hear about how you perceived the differences to be between the Dr's.
  14. I have been using Revita for almost a year and I like it a lot. To thicken the hair after Shampooing I use a leave in conditioning cream made by Garnier: Fructis Sleek & Shine
  15. I can relate to not wanting to shave your hair, I insisted to keep my hair long for my 2 HT, I believe it does make it more difficult for the surgeon and might limit the size of the session but it is worth it to me to remain undetected.
  16. 9 consults, that's impressive!! You are making an excellent case for HT candidates and their decision making process. I would love to hear about how you perceived the differences to be between the Dr's.
  17. I used to spend big bucks on Propecia and now I take 1/4 Proscar per day. I has made no difference on the effectiveness. Pill cutters are cheap, you cut your Proscar pill 4 ways, it's very easy to do. Sure, some days you get a tiny bit more or less, it does not make any difference. That's what most of us do.
  18. This is a repeat of my other post in reply to a question about DHI: I did some research on DHI a few months ago, I was focusing on their Athens office where some of the founders still operate I believe. My overall impression is that this is a Hair mill in all it's splendor, the guarantees are shady and meaningless, the patient reports are even more scary than those from Bosley.

  20. La La Land, Just checking in to get your feedback on your recent Dr consultations.
  21. In my situation I was able to keep my hair long so the transplanted hair growth was almost completely invisible. I never told anyone except my hairstylist after the 2nd HT, she was going to notice the nicely healing scar anyway. The scar is now invisible even to her expert eyes on most days. My best excuse has been Propecia, "Yeah!! I got some great results from the pills!"
  22. Great post!! It's the essence of the joy felt after successful HT's. I read you Weblog too, congratulations on a great patient/surgeon success story. I will be looking forward to your updated pictures in January 2009.
  23. Hey Mikey11, I'd love to see the lab results. Thanks for keeping us posted.
