  1. Hmm. Density looks to be a little on the low side. Think he may need a second procedure
  2. Some people use wrist weights to up the intensity a bit but to be honest the games - particularly the boxing ones are absolutely exhausting and leave me a sweating mess after a few minutes My 'go to' game though is 'Beat Saber' - hitting coloured blocks with virtual lightsabers that come towards you in time with pounding music tracks. Hugely addictive, exhausting on more intense levels and just plain fun. Time flies when you're playing as well and before you know it you've done 45 mins and burnt hundreds af calories.
  3. I've got an Oculus Quest VR headset and it's a surprisingly useful tool for exercising. Quite a few fitness games available for it - boxing, tennis etc. Unlike the rowing machine that sits unused in the corner of my lounge, exercising in VR is a genuinely enjoyable, fun experience that I actually look forward to each day.
  4. I'm quite looking forward to it in the short term, but can imagine going stir crazy after a couple of weeks. Plenty of unwatched Netflix stuff, a bit of DIY I've no excuse to put off now, and hopefully force myself into a bit of exercise now and then.
  5. I stopped finasteride a few years ago after using it for over ten years. I didn't experience noticeable loss afterwards, but then it didn't really benefit me while I was on it. It possibly slowed my loss somewhat but who knows? I've seen enough good results from finasteride though to conclude I was just one of the unlucky ones.
  6. This patient is in his late 30's with fine quality hair and advancing loss. A combination of Propecia and surgery have gone a long way to addressing his concerns. We transferred 1,901 follicular units via FUE with an average of 2 hairs per graft. He is happy with how things are developing at a little over 9 months.
  7. Yes it does look like mpb unfortunately. As has been said though, it's early stages and you may well benefit from finasteride. If you respond well to it, you may stabilise things or even improve your situation. Best of luck with it.
  8. I don't use concealers much these days but I used to find that Dermmatch gave the most natural look to the hairline, while fibres worked great for the crown.
  9. Yep no need for concern. You're grafts will be well rooted by now. Sounds like you're following your surgeon's post op instructions and things should be fine.
  10. It's doing its job then. You've stabilised your hair which puts you in a great position when planning further work.
  11. Thanks Melvin. Yes, he's planning on addressing the crown in the near future so we'll hope to update this case further.
  12. This patient is in his early 40’s and was only really concerned with the front and top of his sparse scalp. We did an FUE procedure of 2,322 follicular units with an average of 2.3 hairs per graft. At the 6 month mark he is pretty happy and looking forward to further development. The follow up pictures were not taken at our normal location. These will be added in a few months because he has now said he would like to consider the crown. This can happen when people see the change that the front has brought.
  13. Don't recognise the name but that looks a spectacular result.
  14. Looks to have thickened up nicely over the last month. Very promising with hopefully plenty still to come.
  15. According to their website, Hasson and Wong are doing in-person consultations in Toronto today and tomorrow.
  16. Noticeable improvement from last month. Things definitely starting to happen. Next couple of months should be interesting.
  17. 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 l
  18. 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.
  19. Really promising signs at four months. Hopefully this gets updated again.
  20. 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.
