  1. Yeah, Bill...help me out what were you trying to say? Also, met with Dr. DeYarman, very nice man. He said 2k graphs needed instead of 4k. I'm a bit confused....why would the # of graphs differ so much? Also, was told the # of graphs using the ARTAS machine, 2k, was like 4k compared to the FUT method from back 15 years ago. Is that true? The graphs are that much better/effective/yield?
  2. Hi Folks, I have done a lot of reading, despite some skeptics, I am leaning towards Dr. Umar (had consult) or Deyarman (consult soon). I'm in need of some repair work from 15 yrs ago to add density (probably 4-5.5k graphs). I think I am realistic in what results are achievable, I'm tired of using topikk on the scraps I have left. The ARTAS system Dr. Deyarman is using is intriguing but so is some of the repair work performed by Dr. Umar. Despite my adequate facial/body hair, Dr. Umar felt my head donor area was adequate and felt using that was the best course of action. Please provide your thoughts and experiences. I feel like this is my only shot to get it right!
  3. I am considering Deyarman myself, would love to see/hear an update if possible.
