  1. Based on your hair characteristics (fine hair, advanced hair loss) I think you'd be better served by an FUT. You need lots of grafts to make an appreciable difference and FUT is still the best way to maximize your total grafts.
  2. Any reason why you didn't go with Rahal for a second procedure? Which doctor did you choose for the jaw implant?
  3. Just wanted to say that your results are incredible.... And that I hate you...lol. Hoping one day I'll be touched by Rahal's hands.
  4. I would bring the temples forward a bit to match the lower hairline. Your hairline is lower, but the temples are still a bit further back. It would make it a bit more in proportion.
  5. Uh yeah sure bruh.... try writing in a style that doesn't scream shill.
  6. So is the current pricing for Rahal still $8 FUE and $4 for FUT in Canadian dollars? Any info about current pricing is appreciated. Thanks.
  7. Purely speaking from my own experience, but at the time of my surgery I had already taken finasteride for about 5 years. It did nothing to stop shock loss. In fact, my shock loss was pronounced and excessive. Everything seemed to regrow, but don't count on it making a difference in regards to shock loss. I think like the posters above said, it's really more a function of how traumatic the surgery was and your body's ability to handle that stress.
  8. Where is everyone even getting this topical finasteride?
  9. The sense of losing control. It's a stark visual reminder of how little control we have over our bodies and our eventual decline. Ugh. But you are right, having the ability to intervene at all is a good thing. There are worse things that can happen to us physically that we have ZERO ability to stop.
  10. I think when it comes down to artistry for hairlines, Rahal is really amazing. Konior is probably on par with Rahal. That said, if you are only considering FUE, Rahal does use a tech / nurse to do a lot of the extractions. That's not to say the tech (Mike I believe) isn't highly trained, but it is something to be aware of.
  11. I don't know what the hell they'd sue for.... It's an empty threat that they keep using, but they know that they would be destroyed by a countersuit. They would lose hands down. There is no argument that would convince a jury that they are meeting the bare minimum best practices for this kind of surgery. Further, I suspect the person who is actually doing the surgery is not even a doctor, and from the sound it of, perhaps not even a nurse.
  12. I think it's a viable option if you are fully committed to wearing a partial piece for the rest of your life. And it does seem that it fits your lifestyle. In fact, you can find a section on Dr. Konior's website saying that for a patient that is very committed and motivated, the hair transplant in the front + partial hair system in the back can give a very good cosmetic outcome. In fact, I think for a very bald guy it's the best way to get the look of a "full head of hair."
  13. Ughh..... You could not make this stuff up if you wanted to. This place has to be shut down before more people fall victim. How scary that this Dr. Searle now has set up a clinic in California.
