  1. Very impressive for a small number of grafts, Dr. Konior is giving Dr. Wong a run for his money for crowns. You and @makehairgreatagain have had fantastic results.
  2. Good choice for FUE, please make a thread, I’d love to follow your progress.
  3. Yes, our online consultations go to us and them, so of there’s no reply we can intervene. Best to use our link. Resubmit the consultations using the link, and if you have any issues hearing back let me know, and I’ll intervene.
  4. I’ve seen another thread by you, what I’m about to say may sound harsh, but please don’t take it the wrong way. From your actions, it seems you may be suffering from a lot of anxiety, it can manifest in many ways. Hair is not something that you need to worry about, at least not in the foreseeable future. If you continuously have these thoughts or worries, I would seriously consider speaking to a therapist, you may have slight body dysmorphia or OCD. Seeing a therapist is nothing to be ashamed of, mental health is just as important as physical health. best wishes,
  5. Dr. Diep was my personal surgeon, and I can personally vouch for him. That said, I agree and echo others. Never let location be the deciding factor. Btw where are you submitting your consultations? This link you can submit free online consultations with all of the aforementioned surgeons. https://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/hair-transplant-surgeons.asp
  6. If you haven't heard any honest reviews in over 7 years, they probably don't exist. Best to research another surgeon with actual reviews. It's already been mentioned here before, but if you're in Texas look at Dr. Arocha.
  7. Each year I see more and more threads of guys wondering if they're going bald, and some unfortunate souls happen to have genetic hair loss, but many of them are just going through a seasonal shed. I want to share this article, where two studies that found certain seasons contributed to hair shedding. If you're noticing more hair shedding, don't be so quick to think the finasteride or minoxidil stopped working lol. Seasonal Hair Shedding is NOT Hair Loss Studies Show
  8. It could be saturation, they may have different rooms one for before photos and one after. I wouldn’t say every clinic does this, some not all.
  9. Could be the other generic was under doses, or this one is overdosed. If I were you I’d stick to proscar and cut it into 1/4 tablets.
  10. The bald spot could be alopecia areata or shock loss. If that area was bald, your hair transplant is not a failure.
  11. Sounds like your age and expectations are not realistic. It’s normal to see scalp under harsh lights, even after getting a hair transplant. There’s a lot of information we need to give you a better answer. Did they transplant into pre-existing hair, or were you completely bald in that area? Are you on finasteride? Did you recently start minoxidil? Either way the hairline looks good, so I wouldn’t say its a failure regardless, it looks natural and like a normal hairline
  12. I don’t know how they would be able to confirm that without blood tests. The side effects would also be individual, unless they did a double-blind test with a large pool. As far as I’m aware, jury’s still out on the efficacy and side effects.
  13. Below is our list of recommendations, remember lists are just starting points. You can look up their reviews and results on the link below and if you’re impressed by anyone you can submit free online consultations. https://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/hair-transplant-surgeons.asp
