  1. Hi Jerry. Any updates on this? Can you send further pics if possible please.
  2. Thank you Shera for your comments. From your experience with finasteride, did you experience any side effects? And is finasteride usually stopped after the 6 months? In relation to the males on my mother’s side, they have full heads of hair and are all 40+. However, I agree, this doesn’t really tell me much on where I will end up on baldness scale in years to come. Glad to hear the HT can be concealed. And yes the posts about Dr Bhatti’s widows peak preference were from a few years ago, glad to hear this has changed. I’m still in talks with Dr Bhatti, and yes I may contact you further, given you’ve already been through it all. Thank you very much.
  3. Hello all, I will be 26 in a few weeks, and I am considering a hair transplant in January 2018 with Dr Tejinder Bhatti. I have found HRN to be quite informative, and there are obviously some very experienced members aboard! As I’ve read so many conflicting things on HTs online, I really don’t know what to do and would be grateful for any advice. Background Started receding at the age of around 19/20. Hair has always been naturally thin and fine (same for all males in my family). Crown area is controlled and it’s only really the temples/hairline which are evident. I use coconut oil about 3 times a week and caffeine shampoo only. I find this helps my hair to grow thicker and fuller, consistent usage = 5/6 years. Hair transplant 1500 grafts have been recommended by Dr Bhatti to restore the hairline. Issues At first it seemed like a no brainer. Receding hair with controlled crown area = small hairline transplant to fix up the overall look. Will look perfect. However, having read so many things online I’m unsure on whether HT is even worth at all? I understand Dr Bhatti’s hairlines have been questioned in the past also. Questions - pictures attached to assist 1) would I be making my overall remote hair worse by going through with a small hairline HT? Shock loss etc etc 2) Dr Bhattis preferred conservative approach widows peak hairline v my preferred straight rounded look ( I’m not necessarily saying low and aggressive, but surely a hairline is supposed to be straight and Symmetrical? This hasn’t been discussed with Dr Bhatti yet, but do others agree on my preferred hairline look? 3) do people think I would actually be able to hide the transplant area when I return to work after 2/3 weeks? Dr Bhatti has said I can grow my hair out quite a lot to cover it up. Has this worked for other people? I usually keep my hair short at the sides and back and long on top anyway. 4) is a hairline transplant at 26 really worth it, if your hair is going to bald further behind the transplanted hair as they say? The question I suppose is.. WHEN will it bald further?! , something which no one can predict. It could happen shortly after HT or it could happen when I’m 40! Who knows! ( the males in my familia all have full heads of hair) makes it even more confusing? Live for the now ? And worry about the future if we get there ? Any advice, comments or past experiences would be greatly appreciated. Cheers dudes. BennyB
