  1. Wow, I had a similar situation with my mom, except she blamed the “gel” she would say “you’re not balding, its all that gel you use in your head making it fall out.” I can see how myths and old wives tales’ get popular. Still today, she thinks it was the gel lol.
  2. It’s a very difficult choice, wish we had something else besides fin. I can’t take it due to sides. Heard exosome therapy, but I really need to talk to somw surgeons about it.
  3. Here’s the problem going FUE first. The surgeon will choose the most robust grafts, getting strip afterward wouldn’t be as beneficial. Many of the 2,3, and 4 hair grafts will he gone. You’ll have a strip of leftovers essentially. Best to go FUT first, and then go FUE.
  4. It’s possible to get great results with FUE alone, I’m an example of someone who was Norwood 6 and had only FUE. The difference is the amount of sessions and practicality. It’s more practical to get one or two large FUT procedures, and then whatever is left over FUE out. You will get more grafts, than choosing FUT alone or FUE alone. The problem that many, including me have is the linear scar.
  5. Looks good for 4 months, the hairs appear a little curly, but that will straighten out in the next months. I would definitely feel encouraged.
  6. Great post, I was wondering if an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) would work to counter the gyno. Did you ever try one?
  7. WOW that is just 6 months. You should definitely give it another 6 months, it may look even better. Proof that if you catch it early you can save it.
  8. Thank you for answering Dr. Arocha, if you don’t mind filming your responses, we can make a YouTube video and reach a bigger audience who want to know the same information.
  9. I’m 100% satisfied with his results, and I wouldn’t change a thing. You can judge yourself, take a look at my hair transplant journey in my signature.
  10. Here’s a good example of a guy who looked worse after the hair transplant. He had a perfectly normal hairline before, the hairline he got didn’t match his ethnicity. Caucasians on average have higher hairline with angular temples. Men of African descent have straighter hairlines with square temples, most wouldn’t know why his hairline doesn’t look natural, but they would just know it isn’t, and that’s the reason.
  11. Mate how old are you? I would hold off surgery for a while, your hair looks good.
  12. It’s still way too early to say anything about the donor. Give it some time to heal. The community is too quick to freak people out before it’s even healed. Thanks for posting your review.
  13. You’ve got some good names, but have you looked at actual reviews? It’s important to base your decision off of real reviews, not just one review either. I suggest looking at our review section and searching some names. Elites in Europe are Bisanga, Feriduni, Reddy, Devroye just to name a few.
  14. Very different doctors. Diep and Hasson both have outstanding FUE results, Bloxham is mainly FUT. Bloxham is a very talented young surgeon, but he doesn’t have the experience of the other two. Not saying he doesn’t deliver great results because he does, but that is one undeniable fact. I know a lot of people here hate on Diep, he was my personal doctor who changed my life, so I have nothing but good things to say about him. Hasson has been viewed as an elite surgeon for longer than some members have been alive, decades of quality and experience. My unbiased and fair answer .
  15. FUT gives you the most grafts, for the least amount of money, and slightly better growth. Downside is the linear scar, but if you can live with that, it’s the best way to go.
  16. You need A LOT of grafts moved in one single setting, the best way to do this is with FUT hands down. If you needed a small touch up then FUE would be the way to go. Don’t pay too much attention to graft placement techniques, what you should concern yourself is the quality of the results. I’ve seen some black market FUE clinics pride themselves on providing DHI but their results are garbage.
  17. Never heard of that doctor, and 3 years is not long at ALL. Most of our recommendations have 10+years of experience and hundreds of real reviews here.
  18. Wow I had no idea, he must’ve gone to one of those “commercial chain” clinics.
  19. Every punch causes scars, if you can’t accept scars, don’t get surgery. You should insist the surgeon use what ever tools give you the best results. In the end, using a small punch is worthless if you get mo growth.
  20. If you cant afford quality surgeons DO NOT get surgery! We’re talking about your hair here, not a TV. Definitely make sure you’re choosing a doctor based on legitimate reviews. There are some high quality surgeons that are still affordable, check out Eugenix, Dr. Bisanga in athens, and Dr. Maras in Cyorus.
  21. Yes, finasteride can help the donor area. Thinning can occur in the donor, it’s important to know the distinction between DHT resistance and DHT proof. The donor is DHT resistant not DHT proof. Therefore, it is susceptible to some miniaturization. It shouldn’t be too much unless you have DUPA which is another discussion altogether.
