  1. And if the patient goes back and gets another sub par result he's screwed because he won't have anymore hair to use. We've seen different stories here of patients going back to the same place to get a bad hair transplant "fixed" and achieve no improvement. Money is never the limiting factor, the amount of grafts are. And they could be wasted.
  2. When is it ever a good idea to go back to the same doctor for a no cost repair? Donor hair is finite.
  3. The rule of thumb, if I remember correct, is that by the six month mark 50% of the grafts should have grown out, and at nine months 90%.
  4. With such a poor donor you will be limiting your choices if you stick to Dubai. A norwood 7 is hard to build back from and can easily go very bad if you choose the wrong doctor. If you can't find someone with the right background it might be better to do no hair transplant.
  5. What's your HT objective at this point? You went the SMP route to cover up for bad prior procedures but you have enough hair to try again?
  6. Glad it worked out for you after so many years. You are fortunate with your hair loss in that your crown didn't open up like it does for many men when they go bald. That means a less amount of transplanting needed to catch up.
  7. Did your scalp become irritated and red? If not you should be fine. Make sure to keep it healthy as grafts are still waiting to regrow.
  8. What happens when you go slick bald up top and have hair on sides? Won't SMP look very strange at that point?
  9. From reading earlier in the thread, the quantity appears to be driven in part from the amount another person had done at the same place, Heliboy. He was another early site contributer from back in the day. He also had a large number (17k) done with Dr. Umar, following a botched HT. Here are some of his details: http://web.archive.org/web/20070428165826/http://www.myhairtransformation.com/ https://www.dermhairclinic.com/botched-hair-surgery-repair-bht/ Another thing to keep in mind is that hairs from below the neck will have a shorter growing time, so more of the
  10. There is a video floating around on youtube of a patient who had 20,000 grafts, some scalp but mostly beard and body. I was doing some digging on a reply for a different thread found this post. Looks like "Endhairpiece" was the person in that video. He didn't stick around to post much follow up photos but it was interesting to read about his initial procedure. He had 13 days of surgery, with only weekends off. I can't imagine being cooped up on the hospital bed that long. This first procedure was about 18,000, which averages out to a little over 1k grafts performed a day. It was slo
  11. I thought I remembered seeing something else with him. He was in a Dr. Umar video ad for a hair product recently, which shows the body hairs all these years later: https://ugro.com/gashee-hair-stories-i-was-looking-for-something-to-up-my-game-josh/?fbclid=IwAR1KCPyIHvRjB08x0X6uB4QsmsPB8v0kBXqT30S9zsJzURLJ0g6_w2NTHwY
  12. Your photo album shows your hairline from 2014. What have you been up to since then? Any more procedures that you've posted?
  13. If you go to the 13:31 mark of this Dr. Bhatti video he makes his claim that donor dominance is untrue. That being said if you were to ask them they will most likely not do any BHT other than under the jowl for beard hair and around the pecs for the chest donor.
