  1. Considering Smp after failed fue. I'm located round leicester. Where is closest and best place to go.?
  2. I went to a company called ADHI in Pune, India, they gave me a total of 4100 grafts in Jan 2014 which only covered my frontal region of head. Problem I have they have now said my donor area is too weak to support any more extraction and having a look at my donor area I have to agree. The frontal area grew well but I decided to shave it off as it looked stupid to have growth at the front and bald patch in the middle and back. Now that I have shaven my head my head looks silly with a patch of hair at front. I have discussed this situation with ADHI and they have suggested I go for a lace now. I tried a lace from a UK based co. but it just hasn't worked out due an excessive scalp sweating issue I have which affects the bonding of lace to my scalp, plus the whole maintenance issue with I lace I'd rather not have Any advice on what to do welcome.
  3. Not a fan of side effects of propecia and to be honest I've got very little hair to save so I can't see how either products will help my situation
  4. First procedure done Jan 14, 2nd Procedure done April 14, so its been about 15 months since first procedure
  5. I had first procedure done in Jan 14, then 2nd procedure April 14, So its been 15 months since I had first procedure done
  6. I was a Norwood grade 4. I was promised full head of hair using head to head and body to hair. Total 4100 grafts. They have implanted less then a quarter. The front quarter of my implanted hair has grown well but the other 3/4 of my head is bold. I don't know what to do? Company promised the earth and hasn't delivered. I can't have any more grafts as my donor area too weak now. Company was adhi in Pune India. They used technicians not renowned dr's. Any advice welcome
  7. It varies from person to person. From my personal experience the recipient area healed miles quicker then the donor area. The donor area on the other hand I suffered from pimples coming and going for up to 6 months. The redness on donor area subsided after 2 weeks. Using a mixture of betadine ointment and water helps reducing the redness and minimise the risk of infection
  8. I'd say 30 is an average age for a lot of hair transplant patients. As for choosing right dr try using a recommended dr from this site or maybe you have friends/family that have done it before with great results.? At the very least get some online consultations done with your current photos so you get an idea of how many grafts, assessment of your donor area etc..
  9. Yes no damage and I flew 2 days post op India to uk with no problems whatsoever with checking in, customs, security checks etc
  10. I would recommend you go to a reputable clinic for a free 1-1 consultation in India for an expert opinion on the density of your donor area. I used a company called adhi in pune who I would highly recommend.
  11. I'm at 5 month stage post op and still suffering the odd pimple breakout but on donor area only. I don't find any ointments, creams, or lotions of any use. I just leave it to nature to sort itself out
  12. What you've described sounds totally normal at this stage. Try using a less harsh shampoo like baby shampoo.
  13. You can fly next day but it will mean you will have to travel with a bandage. Better if you stay an extra day or 2 get bandaged removed at clinic and fly back wearing a normal baseball cap.
  14. It is normal to be asked for a deposit before ht. I had to pay 250 British pounds as a deposit and I decided to do it via western union to save on taxes and other associated fees. No problem for me doing it this way
  15. I'm Muslim so quite simply I've turned up to work with a mosque hat. Yes it's frustrating I've had a ridiculous load of questions and curiosity "what have you done"? "You gone hajj"? Etc..6 weeks have no passed all questioning has now stopped thank god. But when I do take hat off I guess I got another round of questioning!
