  1. Simple and straight talk, result speaks. I am not any paid guy or here to promote anyone. Had 3 hair transplants till now. 1. Dr. Glenn Charls- You can see my first blog and attached pictures FUT-2000 GRAFTS Don't know what went wrong but i just got 40% of growth back, result was not at all satisfactory and i was hoping to get some growth even towards the end of 1 year, contacted Jennifer and dr. Charles and he agreed on looking the result that its just 40% growth and offered me another corrective surgery- which i denied Left with big scar and unsatisfied result. Just like a monk i was seeking for something which would give me the peace of mind and worry free hair. Second Procedure Dr. AP-India, Delhi Test graft of 600 grafts FUE--Right temple region aDid a very clean and nice work-Packed and dense and could see that from my previous surgery . Results--70-80% growth, i could see see the visible change but again, 600 grafts don't make that big of a change but now i was little more confidant and pull off my public appearance comfortably Satisfaction level- moderately satisfied but still don;t want to pull my hair back and flaunt a hairstyle. Third Procedure--THIS GUY IS A WINNER Did not give and started my search again- Found a Dr. over internet and blogs-did my research about him and saw the results--I must say, those were amazing. I decided to get a procedure done. Dr. Ritesh Safaria, India, Mumbai 2000 grafts, FUE- Frontal and sides This guy has magic hands and he can see what actually suits you. I am not any paid guy or here to promote anyone. Did an amazingly clean and packed work (He still says its was not highly packed though) - Better in any any way from previous procedures - I could see that in a week how it healed and i recovered. Results--I can jump up and shout out loud- YAHOO- I think i received 200% growth, happiest ever. Full frontal growth and perfect framing of the face, i could see myself differently and that reflected in my confidence level. Not worried about ant bad hair day anymore or hiding myself from gush of wind. I will be going for fourth- If required with Dr. Ritesh Safaria Check my photos for more results

    Third procedure

    This is my before and after pictures of third procedure with Dr Ritesh safaria
  3. Thanks nick, That's what worried me, I did see few posts saying that the follicle is secure beneath the scalp and after some days it would look like you never had a procedure, but it will grow back. I have pretty long hair, helps me covering up those bald spots.
  4. Hi Guys, I am at my Day 13 post OP, all the scabbing is gone but little redness in the transplanted region. I also saw saw some hair shafts coming along with scabs (No bleeding). Please review my pictures and comment if everything looks normal. I don't see much hair in the region, probably the shafts have fallen. There were 2000 grafts placed on the day of procedure, does it even looks like 2000 grafts ?? just curious. As per as my physician a dense packing was done, I know i am expecting things too early but I am just another guy with post HT worries. Thanks
  5. Thanks Guys I will keep updating the progress. Have Hi hopes, happy that made a correct decision.
  6. Hi guys, I am 28 years old guy with frontal and temporal recession, started loosing hair 3 years back and wanted to stay ahead of the game. I have very thick and long hair and was able to hide my baldness any how by combing forward but didn't want to struggle anymore. Did my research for almost an year and talked to several physicians but finally choose Dr. Glenn Charles because of his good reputation and quality of work. I must tell he is a great man and will explain you every aspect of it, i was initially given an estimate of 2000-2300 grafts as per my expectations but on the day of surgery he suggested me to go for 2000 grafts to get optimal results (I was under constant communication with him before my Surgery day). He explained me why i can't i get it done as per my expectation as it would look very unnatural and kind of female hairline. He did a dense packing in the marked area as you can view my attached pics. The procedure went very fine, although i was very sacred of the anesthesia procedure. The staff was very friendly and was talking to me all the time. I am healing fine and its just 10th day,sometimes i get little discomfort due to stitches but its OK, I recommend you to get a neck pillow for few days for sleeping. Please look at my pics and comment on the quality of work done by Dr. Glenn Charles 2000 grafts FUT Its a waiting game for me now and will keep you guys posted. I do recommend Dr. Glenn Charles for the procedure
