  1. Thank you @ndubya @yesplease thanks man, I see what you mean and I think it's the angle and light as when I look with 2 mirrors I can't see it. But overall I'm over the moon lol. @Salsa I'm so glad I could help with your journey, that means a lot to me as that's why I shared my story! How long ago did you have your procedure? 1700 must look amazing to lower the hairline! Congrats on doing it! Thank you @Melvin-Moderator Thank you @Lyubo93! Thank you @jj51702my friend! @Markitodid you end up connecting with Dr. Cinik?
  2. Thank you all! Nope no Fin/Minox had horrible side effects several years ago with them and will never put them in/on my body again! Depending on the style I want I'll use different products, however for this photo I used Matte Fiber (Generic from Sally's, but comparable to American Crew Fiber) shampoo and conditioner I use 2chic repairing every 3 days or so. For more slick looks I'll use molding clay/pomade. Just had a hair cut #2 & #3 fade on sides and back and I can't tell I even had a hair transplant!
  3. Hey all sorry it's been so long!! Approaching the 21 month mark this month! Crazy how time flies! I'm still amazed that I have hair and how thick it is. It's been a process of experimenting with new hair products on different lengths and styles but at least I have options now!! Still trying to figure the best look, but at the moment I'm just trimming the sides and back.
  4. Hi Markito, From my experience yes I recommend him. Did you look through all progress and result photos? What are the doubts you have? Everyone's hairloss pattern will be different, best thing you can do is look through all results and find patients who have similar loss to you and compare. Best,
  5. @HG1 looking incredible mate! You Must Be chuffed!
  6. Hi @clerksband, It certainly does look thicker but it still looks great! Don't forget that a hair transplant will never full look like the real deal just a very close imitation. It's to give the illusion of a full head of hair. With that said, I wouldn't be able to tell that the front was transplanted if I didn't know.
  7. Why are you wanting to buzz it? Just let it grow at this stage
  8. Hey Alex, How long ago did you have your surgery? I didn't suffer too much from itching but I also applied coconut oil regularly. Is the itching on the transplanted area, I would expect its normal as the nerves are stitching themselves back together and the hair follicles are growing. Best
  9. Woah! That was one of my biggest hold-ups I couldn't afford $12,000 to do it. Where did you go? Why not? The travel wasn't that bad lol! Just a long flight (even with the layover).
  10. Years of research, Dr. Ciniks pricing is still pretty much the same as it was 18 months ago. I highly recommend him, based on my personal experience. I'll keep you all posted on my buddy who had his crown and slight touch up on his hairline done 4 months ago.
  11. Thank you! My incisions were done by Dr. Cinik. Thanks for the support man
  12. 17 months in and a fresh haircut. From when I started this journey to now I'm over the moon with my progress!! Thank to all of you in the forum who have followed my journey and for everyone's input, and of course Dr.Cinik and his team. I'm lucky that my MPB didn't cause any crown loss. However if I have any additional loss behind the frontal third/crown I'll likely do a touch up on the hairline as well, but so far I'm amazed how much has changed! Happy growing to all!
  13. Thank you man! Appreciate the support 🙏😊
