  1. So I have read a ton of things on SMP, and it seems like HIS Hair Clinic is the one that comes up the most. I don't know, however, if HIS is just similar to Bosley for HT's because they market better than everybody else. I've watched videos of folks that have had it done, and it looks good. However, I don't ever see much after a year or two or three. So what I am wondering, is does anybody have any experience, or can point me in the right direction to find some of the top SMP practitioners that have results that are shown to last (at least as long as a few years)? I realize the procedure
  2. Thanks for the kinds words. As for your comments for others to get tested, it probably wouldn't hurt. I was actually all set to go for my second transplant in October, but when I found out about this I had to hold off to see if it would stop. I was really bummed and have been looking forward to procedure #2 for 2 years now, but I definitely didn't want to do it knowing that it would risk the grafts both short and long term.

Having said that, I did reach out to a couple SMP clinics to at least get some more info. Any good ones you all have seen/heard of? My biggest concern is being able to cover up the s
  4. Well, to try to keep this short I'll give a short synopsis. Was going bald so at age 30 had a HT from a very reputable surgeon and loved the result. Was excited about my new hair, but then after a year I started to see my hair thinning. Not so much in the part that received the HT, but the rest of my hair. Was taking Propecia and using 5% minoxidil two times a day faithfully. Even started on Nizoral (at the HT surgeon's advising) and it just got worse. Thought I was going through a case of telogen effluvium, so I went to dermatologist. The Derm thought the same thing, until after a couple mont
