  1. I remember Dr. Sethi explained me that when the hair root is extracted is has to be extracted with some tissues surrounding it, that contributes to early growth and high survival rates.
  2. Thank you guys for encouraging me, much appreciated.
  3. I take Finasteride. Too bad I stopped taking it 15 years ago when I still had some hair. I am a NW7 now, I take finasteride because my donor area is also thinning out due to DHT
  4. I had my procedure with Eugenix 6 weeks ago so obviously I cannot discuss in terms of results. Most of the transplanted hair have fallen in the last weeks. Dr. Arika Bansal was involved in my procedure and made the slits. She is a very experienced doctor and so do the technicians. I suffer from a severe hair loss and my scalp donor was already depleted from other three failed sessions from other clinics, so the last session was mainly BHT taken from my beard, groin and thighs. I saw some impressive results from Eugenix of patients with severe baldness, I also met in the clinic some former patients and witnessed firsthand, very natural results that I could never tell it was a hair transplant.
  5. Thank you my friend. Hope mine will be as good as yours
  6. Thank you bro. I went again to that clinic because they offered me free repair and they were so confident that the hair will grow. That clinic was also in India. In 2006 FUE was relatively new, few doctors around the world performed it and it was very costly and that clinic offered it for $4 per grafts, I could not afford other clinic as they charged more than double that amount. Dr. Arika which performed on me and Dr. Pradeep from Eugenix have lots of experience with FUE, and explained me that because my hair root is very curly the transaction rate were probably very high if not handled correctly so that could explain why it didn't grow. It is much more complicated to extract curly follicles without damaging them. The other thing that can explain the poor result I had is that with my previous procedures they first extracted the grafts, then made the slits and only after, while the grafts were several hours outside the body, they were implanted into the recipient area. In Eugenix they perform it differently. Since time out of body is crucial for grafts survival, they make the slits before and then simultaneously extract and implant the grafts so they stay the least time out of body. They have large team, everyone is doing other thing at the same time, some do the extraction, some prepare the extracted grafts in the insertion needle, others insert into recipient, it is done very efficiently.
  7. Thanks all of you guys for the support. Really appreciate it.
  8. I've been a forum member since 2014, started to bald 20 years ago and had 3 FUE sessions before which did not succeed and left me with a damn depleted scalp donor. My experience with hair restoration surgeries so far are not good to say the least. I had my first FUE performed in 2006 with a very reputed clinic, I had a 4200 graft session with very poor results, no more than 10% of grafts grew and I losted a huge amount of priceless scalp grafts, the second corrective procedure was done again by that clinic in 2008, another session of 3K scalp grafts and 1K beard grafts, final results were very poor again, 6 years later in 2014 I had another 3200 FUE grafts session performed by another clinic, the results were better but many of the transplanted grafts started to shed a year or two later, so I suspected they were not taken from the safe zone. So, over 11K grafts so far and I am still completely bald. Over the last months I made a lot of research for a clinic to come for a corrective procedure. I came to Eugenix after I was declined by many clinics in the world and with not much of a donor to work with. My scalp donor is completely depleted and there are lots of bald areas to cover on top. I had a 3613 grafts session with Eugenix which mostly taken from my beard. Other body parts that were used are groin to add density to the crown and thighs to soften the hairline. Unfortunately, I stupidly removed my chest hair long ago so it could not be used. Only few hundreds grafts could be taken from scalp. Grafts from temples were extracted and replaced since the hair direction was wrong. So far I'm 5 days post procedure. My beard completely healed by now.
