    melvin did you personally see any changes in your hair from month 12 to 18th month?
  3. What I'm getting at is doctors should stress getting on finasteride leading up to surgery. They know that most likly it would help or prevent this issue but they dont make a point to say hey get on finasteride 6 months or 1years before surgery because if not you could have xzy happen Some doctors do stress this I believe and wont operate if your not on finasteride. They all should be doin this and I feel we all would be better off if this is standard
  4. Well u have minor shockloss then. And I can attest to me personal being on the medium shockloss category after surgery for recipiant with the same doctor. I'm not blaming him just saying my experience. I had major shockloss from donor area but it came back. I had a 3 inch by 3 inch empty hair box in my donor area. It been a year and recipient new thin spots that appeared after surgery never came back like my donor did. I was not on finasteride prior to surgery were u on finasteride before ur surgery. I call it the ugly duckling phase because you hair is fried and looks like shit after the traumatic surgery you get from punching 3k holes around existing hairs. This inevitable can cause you to be much thinner afterwards telogan effluvium until that hair hopefully grows back.
  5. Progressive hair loss? The dude said he been that way for 15 years. 15 whole years and they happen to just fall out on their own after traumatic surgery. Come on Looks at the first pics and look at month 5. It obvious his native hair took a hit during the surgery. 5 months is enough time for hair lenght to be the same. Theirs also shockloss in any transplant man why do you think your donor area looks like shit after fue. Or what do you think we call the ugly duckling phase for. The thing is the donor almost always comes back where as the recipiant area not as often. Obviously their varing degrees of it but everyone has some for of shockloss from minor to major. When a transplant knocksout native hair it will accelerate the balding process. Even if it does come back it will be a degree thinner. That's how you bald, your hairs naturally shed in a cycle and come back thinner and finer the next time around the telogan phase is sped up and the anagen phase is shortened
  6. This guy had shockloss of the recipiant area. All those hairs that were their before disappeared. I wonder if those came back. It's the dark side of transplants no one talks much about what's the point to transplant 2 7k hairs if you lose at least 10% for fue yeild and then lose ur native hair their like another 500 hairs like him. Doctors never preach to customers about this. They should make it more of a point.
  7. U have to give it time either way it's out of your control what's done is done to the poster above. Use toppik or another concealer as it works wonderful to cover the thinning spots until 12 to 18months for hair to fully mature or wear a hat to get by then get another transplant if need be. Like you I got alot of shockloss unfortunately. U can also hop on minoxidil to help get some more density if you havnt yet
  8. his post ops pics do not look like 8k grafts i don't get it but amazing result
  9. 6months is still way to early to judge have to give it more time like you said
  10. My Biggest problems are exactly the same as his. I suffered alot of shockloss in recipient and donor area.the doctor said it could take up to 18month for shockloss to return if I recall idk how that's even possible to take that long.The donor came back and 10.5mths in the recipient has not.i been on minox whole time. I wear hat now and before surgery I was fine mostly with my hair and never wore a hat. So I'm concerned that it may not get better by the 12 months. Hopefully I'm wrong but sucks to pay 20k to have to wear a hat.whats the point to transplant 5k hairs just to shockloss 2k of them out and have new areas of thinning out. I am displeased
  11. No I never did but I'll eventually post pics at 12 months after I follow up with the doctor.
  12. I'm a diep patient 10.5months in and I'm under expectation so far but everyone is different so I want to give the maximum time for the process before I say anything to give benefit of doubt to doctors work. Problem is I was somewhat an early grower so idk its not like I grow late but who knows. That being said I choose him for the same reason you are considering him because he seemingly gets great results for the least number of graphs from the people on here or on his channel.

    Do i have MpB or could it be something else?

    I suppose it's possible but you would need to get blood work done and see if thyroid problem I guess could cause hair lost too. The most likely answer tho is you obv do like the rest of us. So it's either finasteride and minoxidil for a year to hope that has big enuff cosmetic upgrade or just surgery. Good news is your donor area looks dense and thick so that helps for better results if you elect for surgery
  14. Overthinking it. Your fine 3 mins is not gonna cause any damage. Just make sure to wear hat next time if you want to be super safe for the next few months.
