  1. Thank you all very much for your advice. I received several confirmations from some of the larger clinics in India that I was a suitable candidate. I did receive two outright rejections. I was ready to book my flights when I decided to post in this forum. Thank you for your advice and for saving me what I assume would have been a slow, painful realisation that I had made a mistake with pursuing a transplant.
  2. I'm not concerned with the cost at this stage. If I went ahead with the treatment I would want to be sure I could generate the 9,000 units that I understand is what is required to give my head a reasonable coverage. I'm ok to use beard hair from around my neck and possibly under my chin but don't wish to have any facial beard hair removed (I like my beard). Also happy to use chest hair and any other body hair that can assist the procedure. If this isn't feasible then I won't proceed with the surgery. Any advice members can provide will be appreciated.
  3. This is what the surgeon advised, before we discussed chest hair. He said we could extract 500 units from my chest as well.
  4. G'day I am at stage 7 Norwood with my hair loss. It started in my late teens and I'm now in my mid-thirties. I'm looking at getting a hair transplant at the Dermalife clinic in India. I have been advised that they can transplant 9000 units in three sessions. 7000 units would be transplanted over two consecutive days and 3000 units on a return visit three months later. The transplant would be a mixture of beard, chest and head hair. In the first two sessions I've been advised that they can take 4,500 to 5000 from my head and 1,000 to 1,500 from my beard. I then advised that I have a reasonably thick chest covering and was told that this can be used as well. I've attached pictures of my hair and beard. I'd be interested to hear any opinions on whether this is a realistic assessment of my condition. Many thanks, Charlie
