  1. I first noticed my temples receding at around 22, but it stopped at a NW 2-3 and was otherwise very thick for many years. So much so that nobody would have considered me to be “balding” and by the time I reached my mid-thirties I thought I’d dodged a bullet and that I’d be one of those guys who has some temporal recession/mature hairline but otherwise has a full head of hair (a look I actually preferred, tbh). Unfortunately, as I approached 40 I started to recede further and thin out, and it’s looking like it could progress to a high NW. I’d say I’ve moved from a NW2-3 to a NW3-4 over the span of about 3-4 years after a good 12 or so years of no progression. My father is a NW 5, but he has brothers who are NW3 and the males on my mother’s side all have perfect, Brad Pitt hair (including my grandfather who died at 80 with a ridiculous amount of hair). My older brother seems to have held at a NW2-3 (what I hoped I’d stabilized at). In short, as frustrating as it is, there’s really no surefire way to predict male pattern baldness. That applies to when it commences and to how rapidly it progresses.
  2. I wish I had something helpful to offer here. I had some similar symptoms, and they’ve lessened over the last 1.5 - 2 years since stopping fin, but haven’t completely subsided. Has your pain diminished at all? Hopefully it will resolve with more time. On a separate note, how has your hair loss been since then? Considering a transplant?
  3. Agreed, there should be pictures of both environments, as people’s lives are spent in both settings. I just wanted to point out that it is reasonable to hope for an HT that looks decent both indoors and outside. They are both “normal” conditions and you shouldn’t be expected to be satisfied with results that only look acceptable in the most optimal of conditions.
  4. Although I understand what you’re getting at here, I would say that the pics he provided are in “normal lighting”, as people are routinely outside during daylight hours in their normal lives. Obviously outdoors/sunny lighting isn’t typically going to be as flattering a setting for an HT as indoor, non-overhead lighting. That doesn’t mean it isn’t “normal lighting”. And, wanting your HT to look natural when outside during the day is a reasonable expectation.
  5. What an amazing journey that you’ve been on! Congrats. I’m in my 40s and thinking about taking the plunge for my first transplant. Have you ever put together a post chronicling all of the procedures that you’ve had? It would be really interesting to see how your transplants have changed and held up over time. Cheers!
  6. Awesome, congrats! Any other preop pics to share? A little difficult to get a clear grasp of your baseline hairloss with the one pic you included. Would be great to be able to compare a little more clearly with the post-ops. Regardless, good luck!
  7. Congrats on taking the plunge. Now the waiting game begins. Whats your age? Are you on medical therapy?
  8. Looks great, congrats! sorry if I missed it - what’s your age? Are you on meds?
  9. Glad you’re happy but it really isn’t helpful to post a picture-less review
  10. Interesting. It appears she does a number of different cosmetic surgeries in addition to hair transplants. Not something we typically see with the surgeons on this site.
  11. Temple points improved. Not sure about that hairline, though. Looking somewhat sparse in these photos for 3500 grafts. Other examples you posted look solid.
  12. Thanks but this isn't terribly helpful info without photos
