  1. Hi, I had an FUE procedure with Dr Path in April 2015. When it comes to strip the Dr cuts out the strip, has the technician's cut it up and insert it into the recipient sites the Dr has created-as far as I'm aware. For Fue he uses a motorised hand tool to cut all the grafts, the technicians then extract the cut grafts from the scalp using forceps. The Dr creates the recipient sites and the technicians insert them. The Dr has a large team with a lot of experience. Can you post the links to the websites where you have seen these botched jobs?
  2. Hi All, I've just updated my blog with 6 and a half month post op pics. Let me know what you think? Pics taken before and after a haircut. The sides were shaved to a blade/guard no 2 (6mm). I'm very happy with the design of the hairline but worried about the density, the hair that has grown is thick already and I can't see many thin new hairs in the hairline. You can see there is quite a difference between my existing and transplanted hair. Thanks, 88
  3. Hey mate, Check out my FUE procedure with Dr Path 6 months ago. Like u late 20s, receding hairline stabilised with meds. My website blog showing everything is just below this post. Also yes only my sides and back were shaved. He shaved maybe 1cm of my existing hairline to blend the new grafts.
  4. Hi All, I have just created my hair transplant blog and started a new thread. I'd really love to hear your input and thoughts? See below. http://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/eve/180905-dr-path-blog-fue-1-756-grafts.html Thanks, 88
  5. I hope so David, the thing is that I can't see any new thin micro hairs come through. It just seems to be the same hairs just getting longer and thicker, it that normal? I would have expected almost peach fuzz hair, and that later on that would thicken therefore giving a great result at the year mark. But at the moment it seems like there's just sparse thick hairs. Transhair - I'm not sure of the surface area but I do remember the doctor measured the area and told me the number of grafts it would take to get coverage of 30 grafts per/cm, 35 per/cm, 40 per/cm, 45 per/cm and 50 per/cm. I cho
  6. Looks great, you must be very happy? Hows your FUT scar at the back, has it settled down?
  7. Apologies, please try the updated link in my post above.
  8. Hi All, I have just created my surgery blog with Dr Path from just over 5 months ago. It is the first blog website on here for an FUE performed by Dr Path. I would really appreciate all of your input. Here is the link. The surgery is far from standard, there were definitely some ups and downs. Thanks in advance... http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/blog/home-page.asp?WebID=3100 I had my FUE surgery with Dr Path on the 8th of April 2015, I was a little apprehensive as Dr Path would be predominantly be seen as a strip surgeon however through online consultation and numerous e
  9. Yes Dr Path does the same, all fue grafts are examined under microscope, trimmed and discarded if damaged. I think because of the danger in transection is higher with fue the doctor predominantly aims for 2s. If he gets that and extracts it perfectly, great. If not it may be able to be spliced so as to get a viable single.
  10. The coverage from his first op really is sub par. Interesting I thought that cutting down larger graphs was the norm. I had an fue procedure with Dr Path 4 months ago. The doctor used 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s but he said that they never extract singles by themselves as the transection rate was much too high on singles. So they extract 2s and 3s and then cut them down to singles. Does this sound normal?
  11. Great result doctor with such a small number of grafts for a large balding area. I'm sure he's very happy.
  12. It looks good Dr. Can I ask what was the target number of grafts per square cm that was agreed upon before surgery. It seems like a large bald area for only 1442 grafts. How many cm was the measured bald area that was operated on?
  13. Hey mate, Pictures can be deceiving but I agree with others here ur hairline looks OK without the toppik. I would maybe just use the toppik behind the hairline, cos at the moment with the toppik it looks like a microphone and unnatural. If u actually look at guys with full heads of hair and great hairlines, there is always a bit of miniaturisation in the hairline. I think u should show your natural hairline. And use the toppik to reinforce just behind it. So it looks natural but also gives the illusion of density. There are VERY few white guys that have the hairline you're going for.
  14. Hi Transhair, I had FUE surgery with Dr Path last month. All good so far. Great team and Dr Path is great to deal with. Let me know if u have any questions. Cheers, 88
  15. Good news. The Doctor has confirmed they will perform the follow up free of charge next Monday. Which is an excellent outcome. I will post a full report of my experience etc. soon. Very happy! Thank you all for the advice.
