  1. Are you open about having had a HT Matt? If so, how do people react when you tell them you had one done?
  2. BHRClinic, Could you please update us on Stinger's progress? Thank you.

    Dr. Nadimi FUE

    Hi Harry, Best of luck to you. I think you made a wise decision in choosing to have smaller surgeries. Please keep us posted. Cheers.
  4. Hi Jan, From the photos that you have posted, it does look like your hair loss pattern has been quite stable at a Norwood 5A for many years. But it is also important to remember that hair loss is progressive so having a good idea of where your hair loss will pattern will be in the distant future is important. As far as cost is concerned, here is how I look at it. Once you have found a few Doctors that you have full confidence in, it shouldn't matter who you end up going to. What matters is that you have total confidence in their ability to carry out your hair transplant. Saving a few thousand euros/dollars, etc, is obviously an added bonus but that feeling of total confidence in your decision should always come first. So take your time with thinking this over and you'll have your answer when there no longer is any doubt. Don't pull the trigger before you are absolutely sure. Finally, it doesn't look like your hair is really that fine. I would say it is around medium-fine. This has its benefits, as blond and medium fine hair produces very natural looking hairlines. In my opinion, blonde haired patients require lower density in the hairline for a result to look natural so you have that going for you as well. I hope this helps.
  5. Hi Devop911, It appears that you have a Norwood 5A pattern, although a reputable Doctor would have to see you in person in order to evaluate your future pattern. Do any of your immediate family members have a similar hair loss pattern (or perhaps a more advanced hair pattern)? This may be an indicator of where you will end up in the future, but hair loss can of course be unpredictable sometimes. Knock on wood. Second, It is important to highlight that once you have a strip taken out of your donor area, you are stuck with this scar for the rest of your life. It is still a widely used method of hair transplantation, and consequently produces wonderful results. However, it is important to emphasize that you won't be able to wear your hair short on the sides without the scar showing, so think long and hard before having a strip surgery. I would hate for you to lose more hair down the line and be stuck with a scar. But if it doesn't bother you, then it may be a method to consider. Third, I personally like the results of Dr. Devroye. I think he produces very natural results and is certainly one of the top tier Docs in the European market. I know that Hattingen is popular within the German speaking markets, so they may be a clinic to consider, especially if you're considering FUT. Best of luck to you.
  6. Thanks for sharing the additional photo. Best of luck with the second procedure and please do keep us updated. Cheers.
  7. This is what it is all about! I am very happy for you. Do you have any photos of the crown (from the back)?

    FUT is more popular than FUE

    Could you please reference a few cases that you consider to be bad FUE scarring from highly recommended, first tier clinics?
  9. Hey 1978Matt, Happy growing! I am sure you're gonna get a wonderful result. I would not expect anything less from a surgeon of Dr. Konior's calibre. Perhaps the picture is a bit deceiving, but it appears that your strip scar is relatively low compared to what we sometimes see from some surgeons like Dr. Hasson. Were there any advantages of collecting the strip from that location? Also, do you happen to know what your donor density was per cm2 before having any surgery? Matt3480, Out of curiosity, which other surgeons did Dr. Konior mention he was impressed by?

    If smoking actually contributed to a significantly lower growth rate, it would be unethical for any Doctor to perform a hair transplant on a smoker. I am not saying that you are wrong, but there does seem to be conflicting opinions on how bad smoking actually is for someone who has just had a HT. Interestingly, I have had a well established Doctor ask me if I smoked, while another well regarded Doctor openly claimed that smoking is an excuse used by some should the result not meet expectations.

    FUT result- Dr. Feriduni

    Why was the title edited? I believe it said "Bad FUT Result - Dr. Feriduni." This is a terrible result and I hope that the patient receives a full refund.
  12. This is obviously something that is bothering you a great deal. If I were in your situation, I would book a flight to a trusted Doctor to have my donor area examined to rule out the possibility of donor miniaturization. You don't seem convinced by your last visit, so why not end the speculation before you commit to surgery? You may have to pay a few hundred dollars for this, but it would give you peace of mind, knowing that you are making the right decision in pursuing surgery. No one will be able to look at your photos and say definitively that your donor is miniaturizing.
  13. Why don't you try coloring your hair so that the donor has a uniform color. The fact that you have grey patches throughout your donor may be making the donor area appear as if it has thinning patches in the photos. You could also try taking a few videos of your donor zone in an area with natural lighting, and send them in to the clinics you are considering, instead of photos. There are different sites that will allow you to upload content and share it via a link. Finally, you have some of the very best Doctors in the world in the US who produce incredibly natural results. Dr. Gabel, Drs. Ron and Paul Shapiro, Dr. Konior to name a few. Why not consider one of them for your surgery?
  14. You are really doing fantastic work these days Dr. Devroye. Keep it up!
