  1. Good Day Has anybody had any experience with these doctors at Medical Hair Restoration in Cape Town, South Africa? I have heard good things from a friend, but was wondering if anyone has had a transplant with them? Many Thanks
  2. Understood, thank you. Guess I'll have to bite the bullet and shave for a while. How depressing.
  3. Thanks @waitforanagen. How do you feel about a small session (maybe 1-2000 grafts) just to restore a hairline and a little coverage?
  4. @MJ2012, I appreciate your directness and honesty, even though it is painful to hear. If anyone else would like to comment, I am still open for suggestions and to hear ideas...

  6. Hello all! I am a 26 year old balding male and I am considering a FUT hair transplant with Dr Craig Ress in Cape Town, South Africa after a recommendation from a friend. My situation differs quite largely from his though. I am guessing I am a Norwood Level 5 and I have been using Finpecia for about a year and concealing with a generic of Toppik (Mo Fibres) for about a year. I feel the Finpecia has only slowed the hair loss and not stopped it. The concealer is great, but I feel it is becoming a lot more noticeable of late. I have also tried shaving my head, but do not feel confident with the look. I have since decided to look properly into the hair transplant and with having the month of March 2013 off when I arrive back in South Africa - I figured it was a perfect time for the treatment. I am currently booked for the procedure for the 28th of February, but am not 100% sure of the move. My concerns are these: 1. How many grafts will I need to get decent coverage? 2. How long would the scar be? 3. Is it the best time for me to go ahead with this treatment, or should I wait a few more years? 4. Has anybody had any experience with Dr Ress? (Hair Loss | Restoration | Transplants | Surgery - MHR) 5. What sort of results should I expect? 6. Do I have sufficient donor hair? Thanks in advance for any help!
