  1. alright folks, well here we are. 15 months later, this is how it looks. obviously i'm ecstatic, i have my confidence back and its changed my life entirely. The £9500 i spent was worth every single penny, and then some. however, it is worth noting that the reduced density on one side remains - it's not obvious in the photos, but when my hair is greasy after 3-4 days and the hairs clump together, there is less hair on one side than the other (can see more of the scalp). It's unnoticeable to most people, but i know it's like that. So, the thing i picked up on after 6 months or so, as
  2. 6 months in. I'm happy with the actual hairline, i won't judge the final result until i get to 12 months. There's more density on 1 side than the other, clinic tells me that it could just be more grafts fell on one side so to wait and see. EDIT: - yes i'm gippy - forgot i'd already had a profile back in december, i'd joined so many hairsites over the years....
  3. googling around, it looks like some clinics offer aftercare sprays - Liposomal ATP sprays that apparently do promote care and nuture the new grafts. But i cannot find anywhere to buy it! Where can i get some?
  4. just had my transplant done, on Tuesday 15th. 3100 grafts, 6586 hairs. I've currently got bad swelling around my forehead and it has gone to the sides of my face, so i've currently got a really fat head! I'm continuing to take Medrol and using icepacks. I got comprehensive post-op instructions from the surgery (Dr. Devroye) . I stayed at the clinic overnight, so have followed it to the letter so far. His team took care of Day `, before I then came back home. It's now approaching the end of Day 2 - i've not done anything really - just panicked a bit over my fat face due to the
  5. as per title really. i'm in UK - going to Brussels to have my op with Dr.Devroye, 3000 grafts estimated, Norwood 3. 8000 euro + any extra grafts i might need if 3k not enough. Very excited - been wanting this for 5 years, i'm now 33 and its time. Any prep i should do beforehand? How best to look after the new hairs afterward? Will i need more than 2 weeks off work?
  6. Hello good Sir. can i ask where abouts you would be travelling from? i'm from the UK and like you, made my decision and about to pay the deposit next week - i went with Dr Devroye. did you consider any of the doctors in Belgium, who seem to have lots of testimonials? i considered Bhatti but in the end didn't fancy travelling all the way to India and back, plus any aftercare issues to consider (i'm having FUT).
  7. It has been a 5 year journey, and next week I will be in a position to pay a deposit of around £2.7k to Dr. Devroye's clinic. I have had 2 previous consultations, 1 with Ziering back in 2014, and 1 with Dr. Bisanga last year. I went with Dr. Devroye for a number of reasons, but the main thing was I personally clicked more with him, his approach, and the conversation we had. I don't feel like there is any other reason to have further consultations with other doctors. He was a lovely person on first impressions and I found his staff to be super friendly and polite. Plus it was v
  8. well, here's what i've gathered so far: As for the catching up with the rest of this thread: look - its not like a used car market. Prices won't be changing So often as to render it completely pointless information......if anything, if prices really were changing that often over time, then surely knowing the prices and trends would be useful and interesting information? In any case, knowing a ballpark figure or what the person paid for it would be useful information. As for discounts - again - surely this would be useful information for everyone to know??? If there a
  9. What makes you assume I didnt google his name? Did you read the joke of a thread you posted? I did. That happened in 1997 , and he himself responded to that post with some reasonable statements, unlike you. You clearly have no reading comprehension skills and unable to back up anything you say with evidence, apart from bleating 'I'm right you're wrong I'm an expert bla bla bla". I will refrain from responding to your posts. For anyone else I absolutely welcome any suggestions for UK and European doctors with prices. Thanks..
  10. again, struggling to get some well reasoned points out of your posts. i'd rather ignore the conjecture and hearsay and base my opinions on some reasonable arguments and evidence. When it comes to FUT vs FUE for my case - it appears to be factually correct that FUE would do damage to the donor area and render it not possible to extract more in the future. From the rresponses above, someone helpfully suggested that a combination is good, FUT + FUE after if required. For the time being given the various advantages FUT has over FUE, and given that i don't care about scaring/recovery issu
  11. Can you back up everything you've said with some evidence please. These are the kind of posts I've been seeing on these forums and it's exactly why it's been so difficult to find someone, as you sew seeds of doubt. I want FUT because I've seen from many sources that you would get more grafts and you won't destroy the donor area. So basically your message is pay tons of money? Why do you say Rodgers will get me a "shit result"? 95% of all UK surgeons are bad, really? My question to your entire post is : please explain why you think all that with evidence.
