  1. MM doesn't lower his hairline, he just fills in the temples with some kind of system. His PR/Stylists do it for his public appearances. I cant say I've seen any times it has looked unnatural but yes they are combined with concealers as well, and he dyes his hair different shades. Clooney has to shave some hairs even if he's wearing a system. Some don't even appear to match the texture of his natural hair or even the colour. Like the one he's wearing on the first page of this thread.
  2. Donor looks a bit weak and maybe only has a total of 4000 FUE grafts before it would start to look very thin. You need to have it examined in person. H&W, Cooley, Shapiro, Bloxham, Bernstein, Mohebi all solid guys to go and visit. Then there's my own doc and his protégé Nadimi of course, though from experience the waiting lists can be long.
  3. That is normal and over time they will straighten out and look less coarse. Might take another 6-9 months to fully change. great results so far.
  4. A work colleague of mine went to Turkey. $3000 for "5000 graphs". 10 months on I'd say about 2000 grew and that is being optimistic. I will say he was a solid NW5.5 with not the greatest donor area. He told me he was in a room with one doctor and 7 other patients, being worked on by some young techs. Don't do it man.
  5. Who did your ARTAS? Your hair appears not that straight judging by your photo. Are you mixed race? Unless things have changed the ARTAS only has FDA approval for straight hair.
  6. Apart from the concealers he has behind the hairline. His Dad Nick Clooney shows the pattern:
  7. Yeah it looks nothing like 5000 hairs because....it wasn't, at least according to one of your earlier posts - 3100 hairs. Overall it looks like a solid result to me.
  8. I didn't need that many to reach my goals at that point in time. Thanks. I'm glad to have gone FUT first as that has preserved the donor area.
  9. This appears permanent shock loss around the perimeter of the area transplanted. Balding was progressing in that direction so the hairs there were mostly like DHT prone and less likely to grow back. Implanting grafts in front of them will reduce blood supply to them. The Terms and Conditions of the surgeries I've had state that permanent shock loss is always a risk. I imagine Gabel's are the same. A pain I know but you'll probably have to schedule another few hundred to get to where you want to be.
  10. I think he just wears a system now and again but his real hair is probably not that bad. It could be for a variety of reasons. Perhaps for a role he has to wear a piece to get a certain look, and has to shave his natural hair down but does not want to be seen in public looking weird...so he gets a stylist to fix him up for events with a temporary piece up top.
  11. Would be great to see some pictures of progression. It just shows that propecia is no guarantee. I think about 300 is about the number needed to fill in a 'good' scar. If it is say, 300mm long by 2mm then you get 50 grafts/cm2.
