  1. Heading says 29 year old. I do agree there should be no rush to get anything done. He’s good for now.
  2. Please could you start your own thread/post and ask the forum this question? This is the best way to get our advice. Thanks.
  3. Decent clinics don’t need telling which size punch to use from there patients. Choose someone reputable and let them do what they do best! Facts are FUT has a scar but FUE will leave teeny tiny scars too. It all depends on how short you wear your hair. A decent FUT scar is thin and quite undetectable. FUE done well is also quite undetectable even when a larger punch is used. Unless your buzzing really close.
  4. Hi personally I would not go ahead and instead consult with the other Drs I mentioned. What Melvin was explaining is very true. It takes years to became a expert in this field. To go with someone who has only recently started showing a interest is risky. The others I mentioned have a proven track record. With hundreds of reviews and results on this forum and elsewhere. I ruled out the clinic you are choosing in the past as I got the hard sell, along with just about all the other Uk clinics. Out of my 5 HTs I had the best results in Turkey. Please consider the other Drs I mentioned if you don’t want to travel. It takes a skilled Dr to deal with hairlines/temple points. I don’t believe yours has got any real experience yet. Being available in just 10 days time means alarm bells to me. Decent clinics have waiting lists.
  5. I would proceed with extreme caution, I see that your chosen Dr has only recently taken a interest in Hair Transplants. I could not find any results from him. Have you also consulted with the recommended Drs on here? Reddy and Farjo? Or even Dr Ball?
  6. 1500 grafts in your newly proposed hairline (in grey) would give good density and would still look natural. Go for it. We certainly are our own worst critics. Is the clinic your speaking with recommended by this forum?
  7. I honestly wouldn’t do anything if I was in your position. Your hair is really good and for now totally age appropriate. No way would I risk what you have right now. As others have mentioned a hairline should be appropriate for our advancing age. If you do have a hairline correction then I certainly wouldn’t lower it much.
  8. My first 2 FUT seemed to grow from about 4.5/5 months. The 3 FUE I have had all seem to start from approx 3.5/4 months. Although in all cases the crown took longer! Maybe from about 5 months i started to notice the most growth starting. My next ht will be mostly BHT so be interesting to see when that starts sprouting. Only with my first Ht did I start panicking thinking ok this is a fail then at 6 months in. Then i discovered this forum!
  9. It will improve from here, that’s about 7 months so far. Some of us improve even beyond the 12 month mark. 650 grafts isn’t that many but like you say should be enough to boost small areas in terms of density. How many grafts did you have in your first procedure.?
  10. Please see the following: By the 9th month, approximately 90 – 100% of the hairs have “popped” through the scalp, and most of the changes of a hair transplant from that point forward are due to maturation.
  11. Would you be able to share pics? Which clinic did you get it done? And how many grafts did you have implanted?
  12. Looking good and right on track I would say. The scar will become less noticeable over time. But yes it’s all about finding what grade we can get away with.
  13. Who is the clinic ? How many grafts are they going for ? I have had FUT twice. It is all down their skill and closure of it.
  14. Looking good Zoomster. Do you also think it’s because your coming across more confident that the ladies are noticing you more?
