  1. You should wait before deciding on a HT. You still have a lot of hair. The issue is you have started to lose hair now, and you will continue to lose further, so you fill in the areas with a HT that you lost now what happens when you lose more hair ? You end up chasing and chasing your hair. If you have a lot of hair now, you have a lot of hair to lose. So the best plan is to try and hold onto what you have, when its gone you can never get it back. When you recede and lose a lot more thats the time to have your pattern assessed by a qualified surgeon and get as many opinions as possible. Then your doner can be assessed and it's potential for coverage to what you lost and what you will continue to lose. All of that is for the future , not now. When their is a time to look further into a HT , research, research, research. All the best. Paddy
  2. In my opinion you still have a lot of hair and a HT at this point in time would not be a good idea. You should take something that your body can tolerate to help retain what you have which is what your priority is at this moment in time. All the best Paddy
  3. 6 WEEK UPDATE I AM AT THE STAGE NOW ON MY JOURNEY THAT IS CALLED THE UGLY DUCKLING PHASE. LOTS OF TRANSPLANTED HAIR HAS SHED, AND THE HAIR THAT'S LEFT IS NOT VERY EXCITING AT THE MOMENT. AS IM GONE 6 WEEKS POST SURGERY I AM RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE UGLY DUCKLING PHASE, AS IN ANOTHER 6 WEEKS TIME FROM NOW WHICH WILL BE AT THE 3 MONTH MARK NEW HAIR WILL START TO PUSH THROUGH . THE GOOD NEWS IS I HAVE EXPERIENCED NO MORE SHEDDING THANKFULLY. THE REDNESS IS NOW GONE IN MY RECIPENT. THE NUMBNESS WHICH WAS JUST ABOUT GONE A WEEK AGO HAS NOW COMPLETELY DISSAPEARED ALTOGETHER. MY DONER AREA FEELS GREAT, AND IS COMPLETELY HEALED NOW. THERE IS NO MORE ITCHINESS THERE AT ALL. I AM STILL WEARING A HAT WHEN I'M OUT AND ABOUT IN PUBLIC . WHEN I MET PEOPLE I KNOW WITHOUT THE HAT NOBODY HAS MADE ANY COMMENT ABOUT A HAIRTRANSPLANT AS ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO NOTICE ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY HAS BEEN DONE. TOP TIP : I HAD BEEN PUTTING ALOE VERA GEL ON MY DONER UP TO NOW TO HELP WITH HEALING AND ITCHINESS. I HAVE ALSO NOW BEEN PUTTING IN ON MY RECIPENT ALSO, IT IS REALLY GOOD AS A MOISTURISER FOR DRY SCALP. I ALSO USE JOHNSON'S BABY SHAMPOO WHICH IS GENTLE AND KIND TO THE SCALP WHEN I WASH MY HAIR. PATIENCE AT THIS STAGE IS IMPORTANT AS THE ONLY THING I CAN DO IS SIT BACK AND WAIT. ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS PLEASE FEEL FREE. ............PADDY........
  4. A correction of what @Portugal25 said about the price per graft with Dr. Arika. The cost is €1.80 per graft which includes tax. ( It's not €1.80 per graft plus tax ) We know that price is not the most important thing to look at when researching for world class surgeons , however at that price compared to others who are not in Dr.Arika league (who @Portugal25 also pointed out ) it certainly is an excellent price. .....Paddy...
  5. Hello Fluff. Your recipent is looking really good. The redness is normal, and it will fade away week by week. Well done on removing the crusts, it's a big step forward. Your doner area looks really clean and is healing well. Yes the Aloe Vera Gel for your doner area has great healing properties. You will be finished your medication, so you can relax now as your grafts are well and truly anchored at this point in time. If you check in on my thread their is some great tips and advice for you on your journey. All the best Fluff ....Paddy....
  6. Hello @ahglet The prices at @Eugenix Hair Science are still the same. I paid 120 rs for my surgery with Dr.Arika. You can still have surgery with Dr. Arika for only 120 rs per graft , and she is highly talented. Please see my thread with all the information. .....Paddy....
  7. Patient Safety and Health is the utmost importance @Eugenix Hair Science as I and thousands of others who had the experience of having their HT there.
  8. @Abhinay Singh the huge transformation and really impressive improvement is clear to see. Congratulations to you, you are only at 2 months , you have a lot to look forward to for the months ahead. Well done. ........Paddy.....
  9. @Corbyn @Abhinay Singh @Fluffhead @eyesonyouuuu @Portugal25 @inquisitivebald @Looking for HT Thanks Benson for your kind words and appreciation and also for tagging me in the conversation to share my experience and knowledge to help you. I was a Norwood 6 before my HT with Eugenix. When you ask if you have any hope or better to shave it off, the answer is you have great hope. You are a norwood 6, maybe eventually be a 7. There are solutions. @Eugenix Hair Science has a proven track record of dealing with high norwoods and achieving outstanding results. Dr.Arika and Dr.Pradeep with supporting Doctors and team are pioneers of the DHT ( Direct Hair Transplantation) technique where very near 100% graft growth is achieved with simultaneous implantation of the grafts as their out of body time is kept to a minimum with no root touch. Your scalp doner will be optimised to its potential while at the same time well managed without being overharvested as Eugenix past results have shown . They are also highly skilled in Body Hair Transplantation with beard grafts as I had used for my HT , their is no scarring at all noticable to the naked eye and nobody or even myself can make out extractions were made . Chest Hair if needed can also be used. I would highly recommend Benson to speak with Dr.Arika as she is very honest and genuine as she will talk to you regarding any concerns you may have. Medication is not needed for newly transplanted hair and you will have that for life. It can take 12 to 18 months before you see the final result of a HT . There is no need to stay for a few weeks after the HT, I left the next day after mine. I stayed at the facility near Delhi and it is 5 star. Yes Eugenix can clean your doner area when you are there, as I had , but its not a neccesity as their work is really clean, you need a little beataline antiseptic solution and antiseptic ointment prescribed that I had to take for the first 7 days on my doner as a precaution for infection. There is no need to worry about the doctors being tired as they all work like clockwork and know their jobs to perfection with the goal of giving each and every patient the best possible result . The prices have not increased as you can still get a HT for the same price with Dr.Arika, and even at that it is really reasonable priced for the outstanding results that can be achieved. You will enjoy your HT for life. .............Paddy..........
  10. Congratulations @Bigjab for your HT. Your pictures show the work is really clean. Now that your procedure is over you can relax. Take care for the next 5 days untill your grafts are securely anchored . ......Paddy....
  11. Thanks @Jaden for your appreciation. It's my pleasure to share my experience and knowledge to help anybody researching a Hair Transplantation. All those tips will help greatly to your plans for travel before and after your HT, knowledge of what to expect for your HT, post op , and all the aftercare also. ......Paddy....
  12. @Jijypuru being open to travelling for the best surgeon to serve your best individual needs ,would serve you well in the long term. .....Paddy....
