  1. So my doctor has said that this seems like miniaturized donor hair or transected grafts but also said that it could not be since transected grafts were not placed neither were miniaturized donor hair. Not sure what to make of them now. It is quite concerning.
  2. Hi, I am on fin since 10 years, along with dutas since one year plus topical fin + minox since 10 years as well. So im basically covered i guess I know about shock loss and that it usually recovers unless quite minaturized hairs were affected. What i want to know is, do the shocked hair come back in thinner than before, or the same thickness? I have had semi miniaturized hair in the area, they were a little thinner than my normal hair but they did have length and added to the density. Now it seems they are a little thinner, or maybe i am just imagining things. So would like to know if this could happen.
  3. Hi all, Here is a question that my transplant surgeon also does not seem to know. I have had FUE done into crown. After 1 month noticed shock loss of native hair around the periphery of the grafted region. The native hair were not fully miniaturized, but they were thinner than my other terminal hair. Now 12 weeks post op the native hair is slowly recovering, but it appears thinner than they were before. The question is, does native hair lost to shock loss come in thinner than before or does it come back in the same thickness as before?
  4. Anyone have a similar experience? Would like to know if this is normal at this stage
  5. I'm not sure it is regrowth of transplant hair. Regrowth and at 11 weeks post op, that too in the crown, i'd be in the 0.1% of early growers which is highly unlikely. So I'd just like to know if anybody else noticed something like this and if it turned out alright. Are these dead grafts, remnants of broken grafts fallen out(?), or is the native hair poking through. Thanks
  6. Hey Ernie, Thats the thing, I am at 11 weeks post op, but the picture is from 8 weeks post op. I know transplanted grafts do not grow that quick. Also as I've read, the transplanted grafts grow in very thin and wispy initially. The ones I have are like thick coarse stubble. Like what you would feel from a shaved head. (They are also not graft length which is usually a few mm, these ones are smaller) Not sure what to make of it, are they native hair coming through? Do native hair come in thick like this. The thing is their growth is very very slow, I doubt they even are growing because I feel them to be the same length from a few weeks back. But yeah I do feel more of them lately.
  7. Hey all, Since 1.5 to 2 months post op, I have noticed tiny stubble in my transplanted region (the crown). These are not grafts, but probably remnants of the grafts, i'm not sure. They are like 1mm in length and are very tiny. When i run my fingers over them, they feel like very small stubble, almost like thick beard hair cut short. The thing is now that I am 11 weeks post op, the hairs are still the same length, although i feel quite more of them have cropped up. Are these new hairs that have yet to grow? or are they dead grafts, or the remnants of fallen out grafts? Hoping to get an answer because it is worrying me in the sense that I am hoping these hair will grow and not stay the same length. Attaching a picture of how it looked 8 weeks post op.
  8. Thanks for the responses. Im guessing it was probably a pimple or an inflammation around a graft. The pain seems to have disappeared today. Ah well guess its all part of the healing.
  9. Well it isn't a tingling sensation. It's just that one graft or two that when I touch it slightly, it feels like a needle prick in the scalp. If not touched, there is nothing, no tingling or prick sensations.
  10. Hi all, I am 2.5 months post my FUE procedure in the crown area. I'm seeing a few hair grafts that have not shed and are neither growing. There is a small area, maybe just one or two grafts that give a needle like pricking sensation when slightly touched. Is this normal? Thanks!
  11. I have diffuse hairloss in a norwood III pattern probably. Yes I am on medications, dutasteride + finasteride + minox since 10 years. Hairloss pretty stable thanks to the meds. Just need a small amount of grafts to thicken density in the frontal third and perhaps the crown. Since my doctor said id need around 1200 grafts, i though i may as well get an fue done. Only because i dont want to go through an extended healing period with FUT.
  12. Hi guys, So I have had an FUT done a few years ago and thinking of going for another surgery to increase density. My doctor says around 1000 grafts will be sufficient. Now I'm in a bit of a dilemma if I should opt for FUE or FUT as my second procedure. I know I will need a third surgery down the road; so would a 1000 graft FUE done now in any way affect a future FUT? My donor density is a little less than average at 70/sqcm. Hoping someone can help me out here
  13. Oh ok, so what would be an acceptable or an ideal rate?
  14. I thought so too, but it seems like she has been doing it for a while and is now getting better at it. I think I might just be the first one on this forum to undergo a FUE through her. Let's see how it goes. Fingers crossed!
