  1. Noticeable improvement from last month. Things definitely starting to happen. Next couple of months should be interesting.
  2. I had my first FUT procedure over twenty years ago, and my last one in 2008. I actually have three scars (two smallish ones and one 'ear to ear'). Dr Farjo suggested we remove one of the scars in my last procedure, but I got greedy for more grafts so declined. Despite this, and a further 2000 plus grafts via FUE, my scars have caused me zero issues. I can cut my hair pretty short without any evidence of them. As for whether I regret going the FUT route, well that's a bit of a moot point really as back in the nineties FUE wasn't really an option. All I can say is that over twenty years later, the hair from those procedures continues to grow well, and the scars remain hidden, so I'm happy how things panned out.
  3. For me it was not having to be so reliant on concealers. I used to spend hours in front of the mirror trying to hide every single thinning area with far too much spray, fibres etc. It takes me way less time theses days, generally a brief shake of fibres if I can be bothered and I'm done.
  4. Really promising signs at four months. Hopefully this gets updated again.
  5. At 5-6 months you're likely to be seeing real improvement, with the new hairs now reaching a length that makes a noticeable difference.
  6. This patient is in his late 30’s , not on meds but feels his hair has not altered much in the past few years. We performed an FUE procedure of 1735 units with an average of 2.2 hairs per graft. He is happy at the 8th month mark and I have added a video with pics to follow.
  7. If you end up with a 'good' fut scar (and this is dependant on both the surgeon's skill and your own physiology), then you will be able to cut your hair quite short without it being detected. But I've yet to see a strip scar that can be completely hidden by smp/grafts or a combination of both when buzzed. It's worth having a browse of the smp section to see some examples of what can be achieved.
  8. It can be a tough time no doubt about it, but I just kept reminding myself that each day it was getting better and one day closer to the final result. You just have to try not to fixate on it, park it to one side and get on with the day to day stuff.
  9. Yep, that's an impressive result and quite the contrast from your starting point. Congrats.
  10. Thanks John. These cases are particularly satisfying as they can have such a positive effect on the patient.
  11. This patient came to us well over a decade ago in a very sorry state. He had undergone plug surgery at a young age, continued to thin and was feeling lost and very vulnerable. His first step was to look at meds to try to halt any further deterioration. Then we removed and redistributed the offending hair and rebuilt the frontal aspect. Over the years he has had 3 smallish procedures in total with approximately 3,300 follicular units being used, with the most recent being just under three years ago. He has allowed us to use some of his pictures to show the transformation and thankfully these days we see very few of these cases.
  12. Really noticeable improvement this month, things definitely starting to happen now. Should be a killer result this.
  13. Doesn't look good but it's still early days and it could well recover. All you can do is be patient and hopefully the next month or so things will improve.
