  1. I don’t think it’s fair to say that, as we don’t know how the scarring will look in the end. I posted an example of @FUEblonde1985 and everyone said the same thing, at the end his donor looked good, and the patient, while initially skeptical himself mentioned it was not an issue for him. I would caution the forum in making dogmatic statements/assumptions without waiting the appropriate time. It’s impossible to know right now, we’ll have to wait and see how it turns out. That said, I agree that’s why these forums are important, because you get no nonsense information, without hype. Healthy debate is good, and encouraged.
  2. What are you talking about, I literally found dozens with a quick search on YouTube. @Dadda check out @FUEblonde1985 thread, he had the same reservations, and you’ll notice people in the beginning of the thread, said his donor was done, but at the end, it wasn’t noticeable at all. Anyways, all of this is a moot point, since you’ve already had surgery. I really hope you keep us updated and happy growing.
  3. Dr. Diep does this to preserve donor for future surgeries, and reduce the scarring. FUE intrinsically reduces the overall density and he believes it’s best to leave a portion of the scalp virgin, for future surgeries.
  4. A new study was published a few days ago, similar results to Replicel. Looks like we're nowhere near a cure. Thoughts?? New Study Shows Japanese Scientist May Reverse Balding Through Cell Therapy
  5. I believe the government has forced these clinics to close temporarily. I'm not sure on H&W, but I do know that Gabel and Rahal are temporarily closed.
  6. I've heard fraxel laser surgery is the best. Why would you want to laser the hairs off, you could camoflauge the hairs with another surgery. Do you mind posting some pics?
  7. Looks better, do you have any smp results combined with surgery. I myself was interested in using smp, as a somewhat more permanent concealer.
  8. Great results, he already looks 10 years younger, funny how hair can do that to a person. Thanks for the presentation Dr. Vories, and keep up the great work.
  9. You have insane growth, I love that the clinic is wetting the hair, because it really shows the true density, the fun has just begun in terms of growth and maturation.
  10. According to the WHO the US has surpassed China and Italy in reported cases. However, the numbers China have put out are laughable and I would bet the numbers are actually triple what they reported, especially the deaths. They lied from the beginning. I believe Italy's numbers are true, from what I gather they have three times as many deaths as the US, but the US has more cases. The only thing I can think of is the overall age of the population. Another thing I have considered is that there may be more diseases in the US, and therefore, the population has a stronger immunity. Same thing happened to the Native Americans when they were wiped out by the common cold from conquistadors and pilgrims. I'm still finding it hard to believe that this virus is much worse than the flu, just based on the numbers in the US. Each year around 34,000-61,000 people die a year. I understand what the media says and how there's so much conflicting information, some say it's way worse and catastrophic, take a look at Italy. But now we've surpassed Italy, and the numbers are not even close to Italy, in terms of deaths.
  11. The hairline design is definitely a matter of taste, so your assessment is fair, but in my opinion I think it looks great.
  12. Sounds like shock loss, you will look worse before you look better. Nothing to be concerned about, but yea it sucks. Been through it myself.
