  1. very impressive, love the conservative and natural hairline design and graft extraction/placement work looks excellent
  2. I'd be stunned if any reputable, ethical doctor told you that you could get 5K+ grafts in one sitting from an FUT strip surgery. That's highly unlikely even with someone with an excellent donor. You're probably looking looking at possibly 3k grafts for a frontal zone restoration from an FUT mega-session. Just my opinion but definitely more realistic based on the tons of cases I've seen and my own HT experience.
  3. If you've viewed enough of any doctor's cases and post-op photos, their work - especially hairline designs - is like their unique signature.
  4. unless they changed their procedure, I had a 2nd procedure with Rahal just about or over 12 months later and they did not require another round of bloodwork
  5. already looks good, will only get better over the next 12 months! congrats
  6. if you need a mega-session in one sitting and will need future surgery as your hair loss pattern progresses - go with the FUT gold standard
  7. Dr. Wong was an excellent choice, congrats! Design and work looks meticulous. Continued success healing and growing.
  8. your transformation is amazing, very happy for your Abhinay! It helps that you have a great donor, course dark hair and you went to an excellent clinic for high norwoods, congrats again!
  9. Sorry you had to go thru this. I think your donor needs some more time to heal before doing SMP - especially since you're only 6 months post op. While SMP is not as invasive or traumatic to your donor as the actual graft extractions - I think it would be wise to give your body more time to heal, at least after 12-18 months.
  10. I had 3 FUE procedures with Rahal over a 4 year period to restore my hairline, midscalp and crown. 1st procedure was 2k grafts, second was 1.5k and 3rd was 1k grafts. He definitely prefers smaller FUE sessions for graft viability and also to limit trauma to your donor in one sitting. While this method took longer, my recoveries were all a breeze, and graft yields were high. I'd rather have a safe, conservative and ethical doctor like Rahal than someone who wants to exploit you for as many grafts as possible in one sitting.
