  1. Appreciate that mate, and your welcome, always happy to help. My hair is really fine, I want to say approx 30 micron if i remember rightly but there was a lot discussed and I didn't take note of that detail. Either way it is definitely close to the bottom of the spectrum. Good luck for your procedure coming up, hopefully you can resolve your temples - is he willing to work on them now?
  2. Thanks Newhair and Literalno. I will give it a shot for you Literalno haha Temple points blend in completely naturally in all situations. I get comments about how well I am looking but no one has had the courage to mention the hair specifically yet lol. For me, and I'm sure many others, self image is why we pursue hair surgery - the new frame to my face has completely changed the way I look, I actually look ten years younger and in turn feel it. The new confidence has enhanced my professional life in terms of networking and motivation. Personally, the list is long but ultimately it's that inner contentment which allows me to enjoy life to the maximum and fulfil my potential. Although I have done well in life so far, hairloss has held me back and I have missed many opportunities as a result. Now the chains are off after around 13 years of battling and I can begin again feeling limitless, and man am I gonna smash it!
  3. Well It’s 6 months tomorrow and I have to say I’m really happy with the results. This has been life changing on my personal and professional life and I can’t thank Dr Rahal and his team in Ottawa enough. I had it cut the shortest I’ve had it yesterday which can be seen in the last 6 pictures. Thrown in a couple wet ones also. Still hoping for more of an improvement over the coming months. Any feedback appreciated. Cheers everyone.
  4. In the short time I was staying for surgery I met 14 other people who were having or just had surgery - not one of them were intending to post on a forum regardless of result
  5. It’s not a necessity mate, I didn’t take it and know of many others who haven’t. Rahal’s clinic do recommend it but just state you don’t want to start using it
  6. It must be case dependent, does your hair really need fortification in that area? Can you share pictures? I literally had no hair in the points apart from a few stray from my first op. I made it clear they were important to me and he had no problem with the idea..
  7. literalno check out my update and you can see the temple points coming in. Just make sure during the consultation on the day prior you communicate your exact requirements with Dr Rahal and he will tell you if it is practical or not. He will draw out a plan where a breakdown of number of grafts per area will be allocated, so you can discuss expected density etc then. I wanted the temple points even further out but because of the amount of grafts needed he wouldn't do it. Either way he drew a hairline that I was still more than happy with.
  8. Thanks Matt, not bad hey!
  9. Thanks man, they are looking decent at about a meter away but up close I’m hoping for more density to be honest. Few more pics at 5 month 6 days - hair slightly damp
  10. Cheers Melvin it’s been a long time coming!
  11. 5 month pictures Took pictures straight out of bed and it shows there is still remaining shockloss below the scar on the right side of my head. Really hoping this resolves soon.. Happy with progress so far especially the temple points coming in stronger even when cut short Any questions or comments welcome. Cheers
  12. Remaining balance due the day prior to surgery, and yes if you end up with less grafts than paid for then typically you should receive the appropriate refund but I would clarify this with the clinic before hand. The refund may not apply if you have struck a discounted deal with the clinic, which can happen with last minute bookings etc.

    Need a helpful gp for finasteride

    I will second that, been using him for a few years after Spex put me onto him. 14 month supply generic finasteride for ~ 140gbp, easy online prescription
  14. I'll get some close ups on the next update but so far it looks good to me - integration into the side hair and hairline above looks perfect, just awaiting more growth to sprout, then thickening should have them framing my face nicely I'm hoping. A young woman said I look like Wolverine the other day which I was taken a back by as I never get compared to guys with good heads of hair lol
  15. thatoldchestnut, thank you I hope so. Literalno, thanks, few more pics 4month 4 days in different lighting. Last one taken a bit further away in less light but shows the shape coming in of the left temple point, which is the weaker of the two.
