  1. Protecting your scalp from sun damage at all times is advisable, you probably wouldn't impact the grafts at this late stage, but a sunburned scalp, in general, is not good for you.

    Should I start taking Propecia?

    Please do investigate taking Propecia, I think it can really help you from losing more hair.
  3. Combover it, or soften it with makeup if you're that concerned. Odds are it just looks like a sunburn or no one notices but you.
  4. Now's the fun part, gradual growth, you're hitting the very beginning phase that will last until next summer.

    What should I do?

    I understand addressing the thinning in the front but lowering your hairline really isn't necessary, nor particularly age appropriate, you have a great amount of hair for a man closing in on 40.
  6. So sorry this doesn't seem to be going how we all want it to end. That's a big let down. But there is hope for rectifying it with reputable repair docs, your short list for FUE repair should be: Gabel, Konior, Hasson &Wong in no particular order, all are outstanding.
  7. I'd ask your doctor what gentle cleaning method they recommend. Please default to their instructions.
  8. That sounds genetic and you should get a medical opinion. It's in your best interests before pursuing surgery.
  9. How do you know it's not genetic? have you been evaluated by a medical professional? If it's not genetic hair loss then an HT shouldn't be necessary because external factors have cause temporal hair loss. Almost all permanent hair loss is from your genetic predisposition to DHT that will shrink hair follicles on the top of the scalp. Fin helps reduce excess DHT in the body which means less is in the blood stream to potentially shrink your hair follicles, this, in turn, slows down or halts hair loss caused by DHT. Used early it can reverse some hair miniaturization, but it is case by case.
  10. Top tier docs make all the difference, keep us posted with updates on the progress of the repair session.
  11. At this point, he seems to have made peace with his hair loss and just dons the bad wigs for movie roles. Weird that really bad ones seem to be what he wears to public functions, seems he must not wear one in private life so is not terribly invested in naturalism or used to the application. Contrast that with Sean Connery, who although always bald in private life, wore first rate wigs and weaves in films.

  13. Gabel vet here. I always like to check in on what people post because it's usually transformational, and I like seeing what Dr. Gabel has been able to do for so many people, including myself. Please keep us posted on your progress if you can, I understand the privacy issue.

    Lapse between FUE procedures

    If you have baldness behind the hairline I suppose to could grow your hair and slick it back as a combover of sorts. Sounds like a style option limiting course of action though.
