  1. I wrote an article about this recently. There is factor x, which could be a genetic or underlying health condition responsible for poor growth. Top 3 Reasons Hair Transplants Fail
  2. To be honest, I haven't personally seen any worth while results. However, i'm sure it works for some otherwise it wouldn't continue to be offered by hair transplant clinics. I do feel that for the money you are better off buying Finasteride and Minoxidil.

    shock loss in donor area: your experiences

    Well it’s difficult to say if it’s actually shock loss or donor depletion without pictures. I had some minor shock loss in the donor area that resolved around 6 months after.
  4. Awesome density, you’ve got a great head or hair. Dr. Cinik has served you well congrats my man 👏🏼

    Advice for a newbie

    I think you mistook what they said. They probably meant to give the hair loss medication more time, so that those new hairs grow and mature fully. That doesnt mean stop taking the medication. I strongly suggest to get back on it asap.
  6. The question that everyone researching hair transplants ask. It really depends, while there is a risk of failure with any surgeon, the chances drop drastically if the surgeon is elite and has a long track record. I encourage you all to read this article and share it with others considering a hair transplant. What Is The Success Rate Of Hair Transplant Surgery?

    Advice for a newbie

    A clinic told you to stop using finasteride and minoxidil? That doesn’t sound right. It’s usually the exact opposite.

    Best Hairline Surgeon

    If you’re in the UK I would suggest looking up Dr. Reddy and Dr. Farjo as well.

    shock loss in donor area: your experiences

    Normally we don’t allow links to other forums. However, if it is to show your pictures I will allow it this one time. I do suggest posting a recent picture on here.
  10. Hey Guys, We decided to create a new YouTube channel, the name of the channel is "HTNetwork" we will be uploading all of our new content on this channel. The old channel will only be up for doctor interviews. Please like and subscribe. If you guys have any questions, comments or concerns please let us know. We are really trying to make this channel interactive with you guys. This video is more of an introductory video for those new to the site and those interested in how to research a physician. I encourage you guys to share this video with anyone interested in researching hair transplant surgeons. We would like to eventually introduce Q&A segments and also Q&A's with our physicians, so if you guys have any suggestions please let us know thanks.
  11. I just shaved my beard in December, too much maintenance. Your hair is looking awesome thanks for keeping us posted.
  12. Great stuff, an increase in libido is never a bad thing 😅 I hope you’ll create a thread once you have your HT.
