  1. Thank you very much for your answer. I think I'll just be honest to him about enjoying my 20s and 30s. I mean that is when hair matters the most right? This is how my hair look after toppik and is what I want to replicate in the front:
  2. I'm just wondering what you guys think though lol. I'm going there in 10 days and want to get a HT by December.
  3. I hope you're doing well now! While i'm not suffering that much (i would say that this is simply an inconvenience), I'm simply not satisfied with my hair and would like to have normal density frontal hair. My toppik routine takes me about 10 minutes, but I feel like crap whenever I don't have it on. Your routine takes you 6 hours?!
  4. Thanks for sharing your opinion. I don't agree that I have great hair and I'm sick of using so much toppik on my frontal third. If I get a 2000-3000 graft hair transplant on that that part, it would allow me to style my hair the way I want. I'm also planning to switch to Dutasteride soon to further future proof my hair.
  5. Hey guys! I live 5 mins away from Dr. Konior's office, and seeing how he is one of the best HT docs in the midwest, I booked an appointment. Some things about me and questions: -I'm 24 and I've been balding since I was 16. The pictures show what I lost over 6 years. -I started propecia two years ago at the "late" age of 22 and it completely stopped my hair loss. -I am obviously a diffuse thinner (although my hairline thinned the most), but toppik easily hides it. My main concern is my frontal third because it's a pain in the a** to apply hair concealer and style that area. I don't care about my crown and don't mind if I'm in my 40s with a bald patch on top--that's quite normal for that age. -I want to enjoy my 20s and 30s, so a HT is absolutely necessary. -How many grafts do you guys predict I will need for just the frontal third to get thick density? -Do you think Dr. K will operate on me? Thanks!!
