  1. It will take time for texture to blend in, for me it took close to 12-14 months. So hang in there. Next 2 -3 months you should start seeing some good growth.
  2. You will start noticing growth with in next 45-60 days and it will thicken further by 6th month mark, happy days ahead, enjoy the growth. Congratulations again. Consider trimming with No 2 clipper after few weeks, makes ugly duckling phase tolerable.
  3. @elicochin, I am not a HT specialist, though assessment by Dr. Arika sounds reasonable. You do have limited donor so combo scalp plus BHT (beard, chest etc) would have to be used. In my personal opinion it is possible to achieve a good cosmesis with such combo HT. Just as in my case I hope yours would turn out to be a positive experience as well. In my opinion you have chosen the right HT specialist. Good luck with the HT.
  4. NOT dramatic altercation ...........should read dramatic ALTERATION, please spell and grammar check before posting, thanks.
  5. I got it done few years ago. (Nov, 2015) so at that time there were no options like they have now. Dr. Arika and Dr. Pradeep did a lot of work on my scalp including harvesting and designing and punching holes etc..etc..Looking at the website I do not think any of those options would be a bad idea. The clinic takes pride in their work and I am sure they will do good by you.
  6. Already such a great transformation, one thing is for sure, beard hair will soften over time (2 years or so) and will blend in more as time goes by. Given where you started this is an excellent example of how to blend scalp hairs with beard hairs. Well done Dr. Sethi and Dr. Bansal.
  7. Wait for 6 more months, the density might improve somewhat. This is a bit early to take a final call on this HT. 2500 is way too less number of grafts for the area being covered, again as many have mentioned you will require supplemental body hair transplants to achieve higher density. Do post your beard and chest area pictures grown out if possible. If at 1 year to 14 months results remain the same and if you desire further density then consider sending your pictures to suitable surgeons. (forum seniors are here to guide you). Often there will be ''some'' improvement in density between 6-12 months, I am praying for your results. Good luck.
  8. agree, however if you are traveling within few days of HT then I would not choose an aisle seat. I did travel on day 5 or 6 after my final day of transplant (last session done after couple weeks of first sessions). I had no issues. Though I personally would NOT choose Aisle seat, its just me that I worry about people walking past the aisle might accidentally bump my head. No other reason. Having said that the plan of spreading the HT sessions over a period of few weeks helped me heal quickly. Plus got me the results I wanted. Good luck with your procedure.
  9. https://www.eugenix.in/cost-of-hair-transplant.html So the prices are very competitive and the pricing is very transparent. With Exclusive package you get two days of stay and food complementary, I guess beyond two days you can extend the stay with reasonable price. So now tell me how is this double the cost of other clinic, this is exceptionally great price for such wonderful clinic whch has as you all admit exceptional results in high Norwood cases. Temples, Whorl on the crown and Hairline are aesthetically important areas. I like the overall theme, it is all well explained.
  10. I have been trying to make folks understand the same, my experience has been nothing but great.
  11. Yes, they provide 2 nights free stay if you book their package and also pick up from the airport as well as drop off....in short end to end service. DHT slight;ly differs in for the fact that slits are made first then grafts are harvested and immediately implanted. In transplant terms (solid organ) we call it as ''Cold ischemic Time''....lower the cold ischemic time..less grafts are lost. (same is true in solid organ trans plants eg: more than 4 hours of cold ischemic time for transplanted hearts increases the rate of rejection). This is also the reason that grafts grow faster with DHT...., at least most of mine grew by 6-7 months time. I hope your results turn out great, praying for your results. Good luck.
