  1. I might do that actually. They're pretty thick-skinned really and would probably see the funny side (I hope...)
  2. I would like to recommend this article to one or two of my male relatives but I don't have the heart
  3. This patient had extensive loss and just wanted a freshen up. We were able to add 2605 FUT grafts with an average of 2 hairs per graft. We see things here at 6 months and expect further improvement over the next few months.
  4. If Dr. Konior is relatively near to you, I'd say it's a no-brainier from the results I've seen. Your only problem might be waiting time as I believe he's often booked up for up to a year.
  5. Best of luck with your repair. You'll be amazed at the difference a state of the art transplant can make. It would be good to see some pics/graft numbers etc if you're able to.
  6. Sensible approach by Dr. Shapiro. You look like you have a good amount of hair at the crown that could potentially be saved by finasteride, so concentrating the grafts of the frontal area makes sense. Still very early days so hang in there. Things should start happening in the next few weeks.
  7. That's a nice amount of grafts and should make a big difference. Grow well.
  8. Nice article Bill. I cringe at some of the misconceptions and inaccuracies whenever the media report a story on the latest celeb to have a transplant. The myth that always annoys me is when a less than reputable clinic describes their transplants as a 'totally scarless procedure'.
  9. You raise legitimate concerns and it's the reason why a reputable clinic will always formulate a long term plan and not just try for a quick fix.
  10. Go see your GP to see if he'll prescribe it to you. I got mine this way for many years and it only cost me the price of the prescription (around 30 pounds per year).
  11. If I recall correctly, I saw it advertised in a newspaper, with the usual claims of being THE cure for hair loss. I hadn't developed my rather cynical nature back then and was full of optimism that I would soon have my flowing locks restored. Alas, it wasn't to be.
  12. I tried this for a year or so over twenty years ago. It did absolutely nothing.
  13. This sounds about right. I had a 2000 FUE graft surgery with Dr. Lorenzo a few years ago. We started around 8am and got finished around 6pm. He did all the extractions and all the implanting, and it felt like he just didn't stop or ease off all day except for half hour for lunch.
  14. This patient is in his late 30's and has been on hair meds for a number of years. His main priority was the crown and to add a small boost to the front. He received a total of 2743 grafts by FUT with an average of 2.2 h/g Here we see him at 8 months and he is happy with the progress.
  15. I'm just going to be blunt here. You do not need a hair transplant. By the look of the pics it's going to be years before your hair loss pattern really shows itself (if at all) and I really wouldn't advise any surgery at this point.
  16. My first was twenty years ago. I didn't have the Internet or forums like this to research and read other people's transplant stories, so it was very much a step into the unknown. They were anxious months waiting for growth to happen. My subsequent transplants have been much less stressful, with no real nerves or worries on the day, and as SBS says above, excitement and optimism for the outcome as the post op months go on.
  17. Nice natural result. Clear improvement on the temples as well with what appears to be a modest number of grafts. Good work.
  18. Thank you. The patient is certainly pleased with how things turned out. We'll hopefully show more video results in the future.
