  1. I think it looks very nice, neat work & a great use of 2500 grafts. Really look forward to seeing your results.

    5236 grafts FUE Dr. Nader

    Looks like very nice work. Great review - look forward to seeing how you progress.

    How bad is it?

    I think a good Dr should be able to get you a really good cosmetic result with around 2000 grafts.
  4. You can definitely accelerate the loss of native hair if you undergo a transplant too early. It is a genuine risk and reason why you must go with a recommended surgeon recognized as being a top quality doc. Although I have a much better hairline now, I have significantly weakened a fair bit of my frontal third by persisting with a "quack" for too many small procedures chasing a perfect result that he was not capable of delivering. Sometimes I feel tempted to try and correct this but I know how real the risks can be & have learnt to live with a reasonable result.
  5. Still early days but you should be on the cusp of some good times. I think FUE can take a bit longer to start coming through but you have every reason to feel confident at this stage imho. Best.
  6. Great reply Fozzie - you nailed it.
  7. Great review. Thanks for sharing & please keep us updated with your progress. Looks like great work. Best of luck.
  8. Good luck. I live in Australia & it would be handy to know there are good FUE surgeons in close proximity (rather than having to travel half way around the world).

    I don't think it looks too bad. Maybe not a great result but at least you haven't been disfigured like I have seen with some botched jobs. The transplanted hairline looks rather fine but that could be due to the calibre of your donor. Overall whilst I can agree that its not a "home run result", I wouldn't consider it to be a bad one either & not something you should feel too stressed over. Best.
  10. The shedding with my last procedure was very dramatic & at the 4 month mark I was pretty convinced it had failed. I ended up shaving my head at zero with the clippers & then tried growing it out at the 7/8 month mark and was pleasantly surprised.

    Prp. Is it worth it?

    Thanks. I have had a psoriasis type scalp condition so used ionil t shampoo daily since my late teens. Also fin/minox daily & use a capillus lasercap.
  12. Hi guys. I have had several transplants in the past & have very little shiny bald spots on the scalp but there is no doubt my native hair behind the transplants is weak & miniaturising. Reluctant to undergo more surgery as i have experienced a history of one problrm area being addressed only for the trauma to adversely affect adjacent hair. What is the consensus with prp these days? Can it work in thickening up existing hair? Also is there a risk of a shock loss type situ arising from the trauma of having prp injections into the scalp? Your advice is appreciated.cheers.
  13. 4.5 months post op & you only appear to have some regrowth happening?
  14. Just wondering if I could get the opinion of experienced posters on the effectiveness of PRP in thickening thinning hair. Also have people heard of, or any thoughts on Factor 4 PRP & whether shock loss, similar to that in a transplant can be a problem with PRP? Thanks, would really appreciate any feedback on the above.
