  1. Most of my noticeable loss occurred between 2000 - 2010 (22 to 32yrs old), but as far as I can tell has stalled since 2012. I would have been about a NW5. There are no guarantees though. Why not try taking 0.5mg a couple of times a week? Say Monday and Friday. If that works add in a Wednesday...then up dose to 1mg MWF. That would be enough to hopefully slow things down. Currently I'm doing 1.25mg Proscar every 3 days without much side effect problem. I take it last thing at night and any minor sides have worn off by the time I wake up (slight brain fogginess).
  2. Looks like you are based in California. I d suggest visiting a couple of other respected guys in that area like Carmen and Mohebi. Never met them myself but they seem like two of the more ethical guys out there. If your donor is suspect I'm sure they won't BS you.
  3. Well he's not your average patient. He got a few bad surgeries in the 90s and was left with little choice but to get it repaired. The repairs were successful so why not maintain or improve it? He also works in the industry so may have had a couple for free as well. Whatever the case, it feels good to have hair.
  4. Yeah I had a look and agree. The hairline grafts are far too thick. Not elite level work I'm afraid.
  5. A couple more months and you should start seeing things, but you know the routine already
  6. Plug removal is usually associated with the old 4mm diameter plugs. I think yours are significantly smaller and there are quite a lot. Taking them out might just put a whole bunch of scars in their place. I don't think the answer will be found online. You'll need to go and visit some of the top guys in person and see what they think is possible.
  7. 4000+ grafts in one sitting looks unrealistic looking at your donor zone. A high 'bell shaped' hairline could be possible but there is never going to be enough to fully address that crown. You might be better off investigating SMP first. See if you like that and then maybe go for a HT to address the front, for a short cropped look.
  8. What I mean is to put his side of the story on this forum. I'm on your side but I have seen cases like this where people complain and then some odd or crucial details are revealed that were never disclosed by the complainant
  9. Meds for 6 months and keep researching. 1000 FUE might do it. There are only a handful of elite doctors out there who rarely if ever fcuk up. You've just got to find them for yourself. Don't trust any forum posters, even me!
  10. Say you saw a youtube video where Matthew McConnaghey mentioned this 'Regenix' stuff...
  11. I think there was a guy years ago. 2014? who had beard hair placed in his crown by Bhatti. Didn't look great I'm afraid
  12. Some of those docs are quite hands off and don't really meet the criteria of -Doctor does the work himself Gabel and Mohebi are probably the most involved. See also Cooley, Vories, Josephitis. I think H&W mostly delegate so depends if you're willing to accept that.
