  1. Billy Zane, born in 1966. Back to the Future (probably filmed 1984): Full head of hair, age 18 Dead Calm (filmed 1988): Starting to thin, age 22 Mid 1990s: Thin forelock and then wore systems in films, late 20s/early 30s. 2000+ basically NW6. Same issue with Sean Connery.
  2. Cant decide had near full coverage with two FUTs totalling nearly 8000 grafts:
  3. 3500 is too much for someone only 26. You may have to come off fin and the worst thing will be a low hairline and NW6 pattern. 2500 is more ethical with a hairline maybe 0.5 inch lower in the centre, with some recession into the corners. eg:
  4. nw2 with a bit of early thinning. No HT needed
  5. He did on my first HT. We finished up gone 12. I think I was the record holder for a while until another guy from London told me his lasted until nearly 1am.
  6. Finasteride first and then in 6-12 months time, fill in the red zones + some selective grafting in the green below.
  7. Nobody 'needs' a HT, so I would not expect a doctor to comment on that. No doctor can guarrantee you wont get permanent shockloss either. Only you can decide if the risk v reward is worth it. The plan sounds decent. Not sure about the crown. Depending on how you wear your hair it might not look too bad currently. Obviously in your second photo you damped it down to show the loss. Once you've done one HT youre pretty much committed to another 2, maybe even 3 later down the line. But if you're ok with that...?
  8. I would echo these sentiments. You may get lucky and one Ht does the job for a few years, but most likely the operation causes other hair to fall out. Then in a matter of 5 or 6 years you've chased the loss with 3 surgeries, putting your 'life on hold', and waiting 12 months to see results each time.
  9. Try lower amounts of fin. 0.25mg, Monday Wed Fri for example and re-evaluate in a year's time. Donor looks decent though you maybe have quite fine hair. You need to either lose more hair or manage to halt loss before considering a HT. Maybe consider from age 30.
  10. They probably aren't bad and fall into the very conservative HT Surgeon bracket along side the likes of Bernstein, Farjo, Carmen etc. That is not a bad thing in itself, but less likely to please younger patients. I had a quick look at some results and not sure I rate the hairline artistry tbh.
  11. Nice. Looks like it has softened a bit in recent months.
  12. Both those links present hypothesis with no data to back it up. I'll carry on unless they follow up with some hard facts.
