  1. Looks fine- eat healthy and try to remain stress free. Looks natural and how it should be.
  2. You can find super smp at more places now. Make sure it is temporary and you can be ok with a shade look. I would get it done at a place that does solely smp and has thousands of smp clients to show for and maybe introduce you to. Best of luck.
  3. Expectations are mentioned and some doctor give gaurantees and says things like it can be done and you will be showcase, your density is nice, and etc. In reality, you may end up with issues later and only time could tell. when it comes to hairline markings they may use a thick eyeliner pencil to draw a pattern and then do something slightly different and uneven. It happens. Best you can do is get video evidence at time of meeting and something in writing. Always use a finer pencil or pen to show hairline and to keep it consistent during surgery.
  4. Some folks have slight density losses in that area as is and it is natural. You can try, after talking to your doctor, a little rogain foam to stimulate growth. Some people general itch that area or twist hairs there out if habits, wearing glasses also compresses that zone with traction little bit too.
  5. Honestly 1500 months apart is not a bad idea to keep healing optimal and scalp safer. Rahal did 3016 in one day when it was scheduled originally for two. All i know it was very long. Lots of room for errors and when the yield and shape of hairline was not as dense as promised or outlined, then it was due to the high density in a smaller zone that caused more issues. Honestly, I am still trying to get repaired to this day and it has really affected me negatively. with 1500 grafts you can safely gauge real growth without wasting another 1500 grafts. If it doesnt grow well then you did not waste too much nor deplete your donor and can stop safely. If you do 3000 grafts, it can be significant hit on your donor and if it doesnt grow well then you are held hostage as you paid a lot and risked priceless grafts in the process. This isnt a cut and dry successful procedure. Ive spoke to thousands who went back into the chair to so call tweak or fix and etc. most of the time they do not post so they do not break with the clinic due to funds or free repairs etc. out of body graft time should be kept to minimum and multiple patients should not be worked on when you have surgery. People talk about fue fatigue but do not say a word when a doc is doing fue on you then two other strip patients simultaneously which is wrong. Fatigue is fatigue and if you are paying thousands for a procedure then the focus should be you you but the dollars and cents matter in the end. I am going to say it as is. best of luck to you and please be super careful. I do not want anyone to face what I am facing.
  6. It may or may not —mine did not heal fully after the first procedure. The way the doctor extracted it created that halo and stencil of donor depletion on me. To this day i have issues.
  7. Fine hair? Be careful with FUE and harsh extraction methods. See results with your exact hairtype first. Out of body graft time is important. Id limit exessive grafts and break this surgery up months apart rather than one go with a lot of grafts. best of luck— i had it bad as my first was a 3016 grafts session in a smaller frontal area dense packed. It seems to have made things downhill
  8. Nape nor beard hair is fully permanent. Yield is extremely low. Nape is very fragile. in my case, both seem to be problematic. Does not look natural.
  9. Well, since the surgery wasnt like what was shown and nor showcase as told, it is obviously depressing. Inexperience i think was a big factor when my journey started, and marketing had a lot to do with it probably, including surgery protocol. Now, i am struggling to get this fixed after so many years. Damage was done and clearly caused issues. I am close to 40 now and been suffering for many years since this journey started.
  10. Dr Mwamba seems to be really good at it and replenishing donor area with alternative hairs. Dr Cooley I heard does it well too.
  11. Good luck and be careful. Approach with caution. I can tell you to proceed carefully with few grafts. Do not dense pack. Have everything in writing and ask for surgical consents prior to putting deposit. Ask what gaurantee if grafts do not grow. Your hair brings back memories and i wish i could turn back time. Im suffering at the moment. dr Freitas is decent. I would get multiple opinions though. Send consults off to Hasson Wong, Dr Feitas, Dr Keser, Etc. Dr Bisanga is also good for hairline work. best of luck and if you need to see how fue hair looks, you can always hit me up. If you live near, I can show in person.
  12. Tough to say at this point— they are supposed to give update July 21st on canadian travel, however, you never know what is happening due to delta variant spread. get a letter you are having surgery and call border patrol for up to date restrictions. That would be the best way. Best of luck
  13. Do not go see a hair surgeon at this stage. Try meds and rogaine after seeing a dermatologist. Get a blood workup to check vitamin d as well . you have signs of male pattern baldness but see how meds first. Stay away from docs until you allow meds to work a year in your body. there are great surgeons in US and Europe. Do not rush into this. I was in similar boat and got screwed and trying to get out of the mess.
  14. It is there and id say 50% at least. It can be permanent and if FUE done wrong, you can have it in your donor as well.
  15. I do not recommend over 1800-2000 grafts for a fue session in a single day. too long to extract safely and you do not want your grafts out of body for too long. Speed extraction leaves room for more errors as the surgery is very intricate and delicate. ive been through this so i am talking from surgical inflicted experience.
