  1. Rawkerboi, Well, I will need a couple more months to decide if the surgery is an overwhelming success. The kind of success that will make it very hard to move away from Radha Rani. I have lost a lot of hair in the last few months, both native and transplanted on the right side of my head. From hairline, all the way to the vertex. It’s bizzare! It’s nothing ackward to look at or strikingly obvious, but, a good observer will notice the difference from the left side. The left side is almost a 100 percent. It’s just beautiful! As I have reported earlier in my updates, it’s the right side that took a long time to heal. The right side has the widest of the scar too. I still experience a very, very mild pain on the right side scar, when I workout. The hair fall thus could be related to this stress and trauma that has always been on the right side. I expect the lost hair to come back in a few months, as they are not genetic loss and I have been on Fin for a year now since the operation. So, I will form an opinion then. The other thing is that, I don’t think I will be able to afford the downtime in the future the Strip surgery brings along. So, even if I am 100 hundred percent happy with Radha Rani in due time, as I expect. I don’t know if I will go to her again, as she is not known for her FUE practice. Anyways, I don’t think I will have the headache of thinking about the next surgery for a year or two. So, judgement reserved until then.
  2. Thanks Khali! ————————————————- I have stopped updating the thread, as there's nothing really to report except for some trivial matters. I believe, I won’t have the need to update in the near future as well. Il probably do half yearly updates from now on to record the long term experience. Il be glad to post pictures in the meantime on request.
  3. As to why Erdogan has refused to operate on you, is because, these miniaturised hair are so weak, they would not able to handle the trauma caused by a surgery. A normal, healthy hair lost due to trauma will come back in its next growth cycle. But, the miniaturised ones have had their knockout punch. They are lost forever. As you must know already, most doctors advise their patients to be on Fin for a certain period before they operate. This is because, Fin helps in improving the health of the miniaturised hair. Thus, minimising the loss of hair permanently due to trauma from the surgery.
  4. Miniaturised hair is a very common terminology used in hair transplant literature describing a DHT affected hair. I am surprised you haven’t known about in all these years. In individuals with healthy follicles, hair growth will follow the cycle of growth, rest, and shedding for the entirety of one’s life. This means a full head of hair with little to no thinning or loss. In those with hair miniaturization, the cycle is interrupted for one reason or another. The two most common interruptions occur during the anagen phase of growth (typically experienced by those with Male-Pattern Baldness (MPB)) and the telogen phase of growth (known as telogen effluvium, and triggered by a number of causes). These interruptions can lead to shortening of the hair strands and constricting of the follicles, and this eventually leads to hair thinning and loss. MPB is caused by sensitivity to androgen hormone DHT. This sensitivity leads to irritation and inflammation of the follicle, and eventually contributes directly to hair miniaturization. In simplest terms, hair miniaturization is shrinking of the hair strand – and, eventually, the hair follicle. Generally, you will be able to see a clear difference between a miniaturised hair and a healthy hair. It’s as apparent as a difference between a malnutrioned person and a healthy person.
  5. Lol Rawkerboi! It was a shortlived Christmas. I started liquifying the foam before application. It becomes just like regual rogaine. Thanks for your wishes! And, thank you too Rajiv Kumar! I am glad you found some useful information here.
  6. Thanks boys! BjornBorg, never have used fibers in my life. Neither do I use any other hair products.
  7. 7 Months, 2.5 Weeks. I think it is time to declare this surgery a success. My observation still largely remains the same. Those patches without growth still remains without growth. The major ones are, a couple of spots on the right side with visible scalp and a single spot on the left side with sparse growth. Like I have reported from the 5 th month or so, it's the length of the surrounding hair, type of the hair and the type of my balding pattern has all helped to give a pretty good final product. HT s are all about optics and illusion, the following pictures will make you endorse that fact. They are mighty impressive! Just imagine if the growth was uniform and full. Phew! So, like I said, I am declaring the surgery successful, if not outrageously successful. I figured why take pictures specifically for the monthly reports, but would rather post real time pictures taken of the month.
  8. Rawkerboi, My monthly reports here are just reports and nothing more. It doesn’t and I don’t intend to use it as an emotional outlet, be it good or bad. They are just collection of events leading up to the next month. More like a log, which might be useful for someone down the line. My prediction of a moderate result is not based on any rationale or my fear/worries, but just a gut feeling. I went into this surgery well prepared for a complete failure. Besides, I am a sort of a person who will get ready for another surgery than sulking at a failure. Anyways, thanks for your interest. Thanks for being kind.
  9. To bring in some perspective, One month before surgery. Though, a short hair cut (my general/forced appearance) drastically changes the dynamics for me. My first post has pictures of my hair cut short a couple of weeks before my surgery. It doesn’t look half bad as this.
  10. I had them too. But, I am not really sure if it is okay to have them. I had them pretty late though, like in the 3-4 th week. I thought I was shedding. So, dint do anything about it.
  11. Hairbomb, I do not believe there s a good FUE surgeon in India. So, can’t recommend. Sorry! My next destination is ASMED, unless this turns out to be a super success, which I highly doubt it will be.
