  1. ^not too sure about that. Apparently this guy went to Dr. Diep: Scar Stretching
  2. Hey, My Uncle lives in Manchester, UK and is interested in getting a hair transplant. He is willing to travel to New York (since I live in NJ). He also requested a doctor that uses Neograft (although I recommended ARTAS/FUE as I have read better reviews on that method). I wanted to know if you guys could provide me with with doctors in the UK/NY that perform FUE. He has diffuse thinning (and prob less than average donor area). BHT is also an option for him. Which doctors would fit those requirements? Does Farjo in Manchester perform FUE/BHT? Also I heard Hasson/Wong are having consultations in UK, can someone provide me with additional details on that? Thank you all so much for your help. Also I predict he would probably want a bigger session of 3,500 grafts+ (if donor permits) to hope to make it a one time procedure. Thanks again.
  3. I dont think fibers would help cover it too much especially if your hair is shaven. I would go for something like Couvre or DermMatch instead which sticks to your scalp. Good luck!
  4. gillenator- haha thanks! i'll post some more pics up in a month or so! also i think the quality of my hair has improved in general because before i would leave concealer on for days but i wash it out every night now. I make sure to condition daily and use vit e oil whenever i'm bumming at home. might be overdoing it but i'm ok with that haha
  5. Raymond2013- thanks for the reply and feedback man! i'm on a daily dose of .5mg.
  6. I use Nioxin (System 2) about three times a week, the shampoo and conditioner. Days in between I use a more natural shampoo and conditioner since Nioxin can be too drying for my hair for everyday use. When I do use it, it makes my hair look a lot thicker so I love it. Plus the conditioner always makes my hair feel clean especially since I'm a daily hair concealer user. It doesn't do anything to regrow hair and I don't believe I had any shedding from it. I believe all its good for is to maintain the quality of your existing hair and improve the condition of your scalp so that your hair remains healthy and manageable. If you're destined to lose your hair, Nioxin will not prevent that. Hope this helps!
  7. Hey Guys, Went to Dr. True last week for a 5month follow up. He says I'm progressing very nicely and is definitely happy with my improvement so far. Please check out the pics and let me know your thoughts. Been on Propecia and MSM supplement for 5 months. Thanks!
  8. also look into beard/body hair transplantation if you want to go down that route for additional coverage once your donor area is depleted
  9. Thanks for the feedback guys! I'm glad you all think I'm making great progress, its definitely reassuring since its hard not to keep staring in the mirror haha. Dr. True was aiming for 2000 but my donor zone was not as dense as he thought (only 55 cm^2) so I have a longer but as of now, very thin scar in which he got 1704 grafts. I feel like my left side above my ear has stretched a little, and I do have some shockloss still, but at 4 months only I'm hoping things will get better. The pics attached I took about a a week and a half ago.
  10. Gillenator- Thank you for the feedback , I definitely appreciate it and will keep the forum updated with my progress! BrianR- Although I'm a huge concealer user, I have not used any in the last pic. I have been on .5mg propecia and been using Nioxin shampoo which might be contributing to that illusion of density (or maybe no so much the Propecia yet). Also it looks like the lighting is a little different in both pics. I'll post more pics soon. Thanks for the feedback though!
  11. First 4 pics are before, last 4 are after 4 months. Please comment guys, thanks!
