  1. I used to be on hair fibers. The routine was applying minoxidil foam in the morning before applying concealer, then again at night after washing it out.
  2. I can't imagine being successful in suing an online review board. In cases like these do they wind up repaying the legal defense costs when they lose?
  3. The beard are the second best. Hopefully these can be mixed in with your existing scalp grafts so that they don't stand out as much.
  4. I think it goes back to how well the grafting from the arms went. It's another non-optimal hair donor supply, similar to the back. Going into the 500 graft session I wasn't promised that it would be a good yield, but from the follow up prior to starting the next surgery I was told the results went well. That may have given an indication that future BHT's would similarly be successful. The other thing to consider is that the newer punch tool came out more recently than Umar's earlier papers. Part of the design intent was extract body hair grafts with less transection and to get those g
  5. This has been 13k grafts. Contact the clinic for a consultation to obtain their pricing.
  6. In my experience with FUE, and perhaps it varies based on how different clinics do things their own way, I found that donor heals up much faster than recipient. I'm two months out from my surgery and the recipents areas are still red, which was the same thing in my earlier HT's. As far as scabbing, instructions on this seems to vary a bit as well, but if you have any left after two weeks it's probably too long and could negatively impact your final result. Some days after the transplant, gentle showing is allowed, and scabs are teased off with small pressure. If it's the scabs you're w
  7. It's been over ten years since I used this product. Very surprised to see that it's $47 both on Amazon and through the company's website. I can't remember how much I used to pay for it, but nothing like that. Very expensive now.
  8. Biafine/avo cream. After surgery it was applied to donor and recipient areas. The post op care was to apply it just to the recipient for a week and to use Aquaphor to the donor.
  9. The redness has gone down enough to do shaving with an electric buzzer without a guard. The results of this last HT will take time to come, but even at this very early stage the appearance of a more full head of hair is there, low Norwood. I don't prefer this hairstyle but the option is always there. Once I start growing this out then the lack of density is evident. The trick of transplantation is to use hair styling to make up for the amount of missing hairs that we can't possibly replace, even with surgery. So there would be an ugly duckling phase from this point until it grows long eno
  10. One issue I have when the hair is this short is that the grey hair becomes a factor, as it's not as easy to conceal. Normally I'd use Control GX from Just For Men, showering with it each day and the hair gradually regaining colour, but when the hair is buzzed it won't have the chance to take effect. The greying pattern begins at the natural end of the temple area, goes above around the ears, and down under the safe area in the back of the head. When viewed from a distance the grey hair might look more like a bald area. With these transplants I am getting dark hair put ahead of the recessed
  11. At this point of the recovery no scabbing is present. Compared to earlier hair transplants with same clinic all of a sudden there was minimal crust after the surgery days, just dot sized pieces. Not sure if it's my body responding differently to the same procedure or if there were new surgical tools and techniques. Compared to the last large HT I had, over a couple of years ago, a new FUE punch came out, which may be why. I'm not advertising a product, but I read about the Dr.UGraft device in a press release and it looks like it's made available to sale to other hair transplant surgeons as
  12. I missed the original post as it has been edited out, but once things have settled down and your HT results become clear, and you start a new thread at that time to clarify how things turned out?
  13. I returned to the Dermhair Clinic for a fifth procedure this summer. So far I have had two larger sessions and two smaller ones, for a total of approximately 10,000 grafts. This new one was 3,000 taking place over three days. Donor was derived from multiple sources - beard, some scalp, and body hair from chest, arms and some from the back. I expect the latter to take time to see the results as BHT take longer to return from the dormant phase after surgery, plus any going into the crown take longer as well. Full results will probably take longer than 12 months. The grafts were placed
