  1. OK Here is the 6th month pics to update this thread. as I said I am quite pleased so far as KO pointed out earlier in the thread I do have fine hair caliber and also I would like to point out is that I did ask Dr D to approach step 1 of my restoration with the strategy of placing a light sprinkle of grafts over as large an area as possible rather than go for the dense packing for complete coverage in a smaller area. Just my personal decision but with my limited donor I thought this was best for me. Also as I think I mentioned in the opening post I am more than willing to explore to possibility
  2. Hi all , I am just past the 6th month point and I will update some pics when I return from work this evening. I am really pleased with how things have turned out so far.
  3. Hi KO, yes i do have relatively fine hair calibre. I realise this is another thing that's gonna go against me so I'm just trying to give myself the best opportunity which nature will allow. After my next visit to turkey I'll probably explore the idea of beard hair and possibly smp too. I've always wore my hair as short as possible but I need to address my fut scars also so I'm thinking beard + smp will come into play at some point.
  4. After all that Ive just realized ive put this thread under the wrong topic !!! Ive emailed Bill to see if there's any way he can get it switched to Experiences and reviews...
  5. Thanks Guys, Just thought I'd say also, some of the advice and support on here which makes up this community it really is amazing. I've read so many posts and threads especially from some of the more regulars, I think without some of your help I would never had done this.So Thanks guys. Anyway here's a few more pics over the last few days up until today, day 10. Yeah I agree gotta get through the first few months, it all feels good now but not looking forward to the ugly duckling phase but its a long road and its only part 1 of my long term commitment to "doing something about it"
  6. Hi everyone, Long time lurker here and i would like to share my recent experience with you. I'll start with a bit of background, I was about 18/19 when I had that horrible feeling which I guess you all know so well, the dreaded thought of losing my hair. After a relationship break up I decided to do something about it so at 24yo I had my first HT. This is 12 years ago now, I am the big 40 in a few days so let me just enjoy the next few days by saying I am a 39 yo guy... Anyway, I was so naive back then, very badly advised and chose the wrong clinic, but to be honest even 12 years ago the
  7. Absolutely HairJo! I had my 1st HT 12 years ago and now I'm 40 touchwood I've not lost anything ...well only thing I lost was the use of other certain body parts personally I'd never go back on it. Just minoxidil and biotin for me. But it's a personal choice, some swear by it others won't go near it. And like you said we ain't gonna stay young forever so if and when the time does come, out come the clippers for the Bruce Willis look !!!
  8. The newly transplanted hairs will grow as long as it's extracted from a non DHT affected area or "safe zone" that's why it's so important to find a highly experienced and ethical surgeon in the first place who has the best possible opinion on where your safe zone will be not just now but in years to come. To give yourself the best chance of a successful HT you need to consider Fin otherwise what you thought is permanently transplanted hairs will fall out in years to come. But as your probably aware fin does come with a risk of side effects,I'm still experiencing them 12 years after coming off
  9. Good thread, always love the big Fin debates many pros and cons to consider... Anyway sorry to be corrective but in his defence Wayne Rooney, has never and will never be able to take Fin, not at least he's still a pro footballer. Fin has properties which are able to mask other banned substances so all athletes who are governed by anti doping agencies are unable to take it. Google Austrailian footballer Stan Lazaridis who received a lengthy ban just by taking the anti hairloss drug. Must be the one thing that sucks about being a footballer!! Although I'm sure Rooneys 200k a week and his hot w
  10. So I have been in contact with David the moderator and he has kindly informed of how to create a thread, so when I return to the UK in a few days I will start from the beginning under a new title. I have been taking regular pics and have bought a new digi camera as it's quite difficult to document everything from my iPhone. So for now I'm gonna enjoy my last few days in Istanbul and update everything shortly. Many thanks Burlio
  11. Hi everyone, I'll try and keep this short for now as this is my first time posting on here and I'm doing this from my iPhone and I've already lost what I've typed twice argh !! Ok, I'm 39 years old been losing my hair since the age of 19/20. I have had two previous HTs in the UK just a few hundred grafts each time this was when my hairloss was in its infancy and I also took Fin at the time. I since had side effects from it so I'm just on minix, biotin and any other natural supplements which come recommend. The first HT was just to fill in my receding hairline and the second was to fill in a
