    RIP Anthony Bourdain

    Used to enjoy his shows with my ex and also my mom. Bought my first piece of nice cutlery (Global chef's knife) due to his recommendation years back. Was an excellent investment, as it's still going strong today. And yea since it's a hair forum, the guy always had a dense mop. I think it looked even more impressive because of the grey/white.

    To celebrate the occasion, perhaps he could adopt King Buzzo of the Melvins as his avatar... Really though, the forum couldn't have selected a finer fellow for the job.
  3. Crazy density @ 7 months, appears to match donor hair. Take note for the future, Prince Harry?

    Your whole case looks good to me, hairline included. Excellent growth. That 9.5 month overhead pic especially caught my eye.
  5. I totally get the desire for complete discretion, but how does he explain having a boatload more hair now?
  6. There are minoxidil tablets called Loniten. I have no personal experience with them. I shied away from looking much into Loniten when I read something about possibly needing to take a diuretic with it to prevent fluid retention. That might have been for someone on a much higher dose than generally used for hair loss though, I don't recall exactly.
  7. I'd LOVE to ditch the minoxidil, but since I started the big 3 at the same time (albeit about a decade too late) I don't know how much of a factor minox has played. Never much of any regrowth on big 3, but maintained for about 5.5 years now. Just can't deal with the liquid anymore, it's a greasy ass ache to apply and seems to really irritate my scalp more than it used to. Even with the foam though, I still feel like I need to wash my head about every day. Would be nice to wash hair in the morning, slather on some dermmatch and toppik, then skip a day washing to be able to enjoy my fraudulent full head of hair for a couple days with no extra hassles.
  8. Underrated doc I think, at least on this forum. If he were US/Canada-based, he'd make a lot more short lists, imo.
  9. Matty, I'm pretty sure Dr. Feller has always been open about the fact that most, if not all, of his hair on top is transplanted. He'd likely be a total slaphead by now if not. Since this thread was bumped, just something I've thought about from time to time which likely has been brought up before... You don't see many (any?) reports of people who have gone to what are generally considered the top FUE clinics who seem to regret their decision in doing so. Dr. Lorenzo's reputation seems as solid as ever even though he might delegate more of the workload these days. Dr. Erdogan and staff still seem to be thriving while pumping out multiple procedures on a daily basis. By this time, surely the internet should be chock-full of their dissatisfied FUE patients if the results are really that much of a crap shoot. If the FUE procedure in general is really as unpredictable as you guys purport, even these top name FUE doctors should have plenty of negative press out there. Where are all these bad reviews?

    What is a combo intervention?

    Bud, I'm certainly not the one to clarify those questions. I was just basing my assumption off various cases I've read about on here. Concurrent scalp/beard FUE transplants seem fairly commonplace, but I could probably count on Jason Pierre-Paul's right hand the # of strip/FUE one-session transplants I remember reading about. I'm sure Swooping will clear things up right away when he gets wind of your thread. Good luck.

    What is a combo intervention?

    I would assume it means a combo of scalp and beard/body hair.
  12. I agreed with Dr. Feller in another thread on this point, and I'll do so again here. This is absolutely true for me, even if I sound like a tinkerbell for admitting it. Never having had any type of surgery at 40 years old now, strip just scares the hell out of me. Getting my head carved into seems pretty extreme for the sake of vanity. The procedure just appears so archaic, like how they would have performed a hair transplant on The Knick (excellent show that ran for a while set in 1900 NYC hospital). I'd club a baby seal to have Chris Cornell hair (RIP...wtf?), so even a bad scar would probably be a total non-issue for me... -HairLostFears
  13. I think I've seen more great results from ASMED than I have from any other clinic, however, I'm not quite sure what to make of this one. Almost half the available grafts for that frontal band area on a still young man who isn't on finasteride? Graft distribution just seems way off here. Y'all are the experts and I'm an anonymous nobody, so hopefully I'm not coming across as 'Are you guys sure you know what you're doing??'. I guess I'm basically just wondering how this approach could possibly stand the test of time.

    Impressive work, doctor. Fella might still look stoic in the afters, but he's surely beaming inside.
