  1. It's so weird; I never understood why people don't post updates but after going through the dance I get it. I've had results, and in my opinion, pretty damn good results. However, they are not as good as the chia pet results that are always posted to this site. I've realized this website mainly posts only the very best results. Apart from skill of the doctor, I now understand that individual hair transplant also have a huge luck factor. All my graphs have grown in, but compared to guys with smaller foreheads or thicker natural hair, anything I post to this page is going to be criticized
  2. I completely agree; I felt much better opting for an FUT procedure. Not to mention it shaved about 5 grand off the price for me. FUE tends to be about 50% more expensive so for a school teacher like that makes a big difference. I felt confident that any possible scar issues could be resolved with a small transplant or SMP procedure, however, my scar seems like it is going to be pencil thin as advertised. I know people on here like to say that money shouldn't matter but that's absolute horseshit; it does. I didn't opt for a cheaper transplant in Turkey because I was afraid if I had an
  3. I think I will have an average result and possibly need a 2nd transplant because my hair is pretty thin. The strange thing to me is other transplants of 2000 grafts or so seem to provide or take up more space than my 2000 grafts. Regardless, I have to wait or see. I'm just thankful I wasn't butchered and I know if I have any issues Dr. C is not more than a phone call away. Of course, I just rechecked my pictures and my hairline was much more receded than the typical patients receiving 2000 to 2500 grafts. Perhaps I fall into the category of people who should have been more aggressive.
  4. I'm only about a month and 3 weeks post. Most of my hairs have fallen out. The recipient area is still red but I'm the only one in reality who seems to notice. The donor site (fut) does feel slightly raised. I can trace the line with my hand but good luck showing it someone... they struggle to see it. As far as I'm concerned, I have about another 2-3 months before I have anything to post. People are right about one thing: By the time your results for your hair transplant come in life has moved on and you aren't thinking about it anymore. I just spent two weeks in Costa Rica and bar
  5. 100% agree. I also had scalp micropigmentation with Scalp Micro USA and I was concerned over their lack of pics since so many people were getting it done. The truth is most people want to keep it a secret, even the majority of cases look good in competent hands. This does beg the question though, how much blame or credit do we attribute to the doctor that really has to do with the physical characteristics and natural response of the client to their hair transplant?
  6. Legend, I agree. I thought hair loss would be easier as I age. In some ways, it's worse because it compounds the rest of the aging process. WIth app dating so prominent, I find it harder and harder to compete with younger guys. Of course, I never really was able to compete much in my prime to begin with. And I'll be happy with average results! I was not expecting miracles--just wanted to reduce the Frankenstein-like hairline.
  7. I'm not sure how good mine will look but I posted. I think it will be fine. There is always a possibility that I need a second one. However, posting seems like a good defense mechanism. Publicity favors the patient. So, I never understood why more people do not post. I can tell you when researching Dr. Charles that the majority of patients I talked to didn't even know sites like these existed. Most of the world does not research things like crazy! A wealthy person will go in to see a surgeon, the surgeon tells him what he wants to hear, he schedules and has the transplant. I wen
  8. I would like to see updated pics since you claimed in a different thread that you weren't happy with your results.
  9. Surprised no one has commented on this but I would love to see your final results. I just recently had a procedure with Dr. Charles.
  10. I had my procedure with Dr. Charles a month ago--2052 graphs. So I'm looking forward to seeing some results in a few more months.
