  1. Well yeah I know it helps thicken miniaturized hair and increased hair caliber improves coverage. The sexual side effects are just too real for me to risk it again. Are you able to link me to those results? I haven't seen any patient posted results but if I can see some patient posted results of him that would help. I haven't been able.to locate any
  2. I would never do fut. My hair is only long on sides here because of quarantine I couldn't get haircuts. Yeah well Diep and Hansson sure wouldn't be posting their duds on their websites or the internet either. But the results couto posts are consistently more impressive than what hw posts imo. Not to say hw doesn't have some impressive results. But when I look at the pics they post themselves on their website, which would be their best most likely, their best doesn't seem to be as consistently good as coutos best. I think couto gets a higher yield. I think couto also does the entire surgery himself but I'm not sure I'll have to ask them when I call them at the number they provided for setting up my consultation and surgery with them. I'm just hesitant to call cuz I have to set my alarm clock for 3 in the morning. Given what my donor looks like as long as if I get a high yield I think the net affect of taking 1250 grafts out spread throughout the entire donor and filling in my thin hairline would be a net positive for sure
  3. Couto has many more impressive videos than any other surgeon ive seen. If you'd video collection doesn't wow you then no one's should haha. The wow factor from before and after results of hair transplant are from the transplant not from finasteride. Finasteride helps prevent further loss but won't make you go from looking bald to having a nice hairline like a transplant would. So the impressive results from transplant before afters are primarily all because of the surgery, not from the medication. Medication primarily preserves what you've got. And I know finasteride works but I've had shitty and scary as hell experiences on it and have read about the whole community of post finasteride syndrome and all. I'm not going on it again. I just need to get a good high yield surgery of about 1250 or so in my hairline I bet and save the rest for my crown and vertex
  4. Oh also I asked hw if they have experienced a hindrance to their yield on patients that have had multiple previous procedures and they said they do not notice any decrease in yield due to previous procedure. The bathroom lighting kind of simulates what it looks like in the sun outside during the day. I want my hairline to still be solid and frame my face when I am outside during the day. I don't want it to fade away and disappear with sunlight the way it does now. If it can be dense enough to frame my face and not disappear in sunlight then I'd be satisfied and content with it.
  5. No I think he was saying that instead of me doing the 5000 grafts with Erdogan I should have been good with 2500 assuming the yield was better than what I had with the 5000. Those pics you posted were a skin fade in the donor area that's why it looked like so much skin. My donor with hair grown out now looks like this. Also my first art as procedure was actually about 1800 in the hairline and 300 on my beard not 2500 in my hairline
  6. Yeah I agree 5000 was way too much because when I see a high yield 5000 graft surgery, someone goes from slick bald to having hair and I already had a lot of hair so it just goes to show you how extremely horrible erdogans yield on me was. I had the really bad post finasteride syndrome if you've ever heard of it. No joke. Well what do you think of couto? He has amazing yield in his results
  7. I just want to improve the density here so it's not so see through. It's so see through that is still basically half forehead and doesn't help frame my face enough. And here is a top view before Erdogan. He had a horrible yield on me. I bet a high yield 1250 or so to fill in these sparse areas would do wonders I've been on of finasteride before and I've experienced sexual side effects on it.
  8. Hmm im still seriously considering couto. I forgot to ask Diep about taking my donor issues uniformly and symmetrical throughout my entire donor area target than from a patch so I have another quick consultation with him on the 29th. After that I'm gonna make my decision. I might call couto at the number they provide and set up the date for me to go visit him for an in person consultation like he said then he would be squeezing me in for my surgery over the course of that same week after he performs the surgeries of clients he already has scheduled.
  9. Couto compilation. He's also $5.4 per graft vs $8.44 for diep but with plane ticket and extra hotel nights I'd only be saving about 4k but I care more about results than 4k lol
  10. He's the one in Chicago right? I looked at his work on his website and wasn't as impressed as hw and Diep or couto I thought
  11. Damn here's another great one by couto only 1500 grafts. Such high yield. Video linked as well
  12. Dang you're lucky. I had 5000 grafts there and had more hair than you and got way less yield than you
  13. Here's a Pic I just took of myself lol for my nose. Donor area looks pretty bushy still thankfully. Haven't been able to cut it since barbershops are closed
  14. I'd say the side by side Pic I posted earlier in this thread is the best Pic I have that shows the result
  15. They can be cool though like here I prefer straight lines like this though
  16. I don't like widows peaks so I will be extremely clear to him on that haha
  17. Pretty incredible for only around 2500 grafts right here. Also I've had 1mm punch by artas and my scars were barely even noticeable when I shaved my head down for my 2nd surgery and they're completely undetectable even when I shave to.5 gaurd. Diep just uploaded this today on YouTube.
  18. My donor definitely still has capacity. Especially when compared to how thin my top is. People are constantly getting transplanted n to areas that have native hair to reinforce density for an extremely positive net result. If this wasn't the case then people would only be getting transplants in areas where there is no native hair and the idea of "improving density" wouldn't exist. Hasson suggested the exact same number of grafts as diep and rahal. I've also had 1mm punches before from artas, and I was totally fine, my scars aren't even noticeable when my hair is cut to.5mm from those 1mm punches. I have had hair transplanted between native hairs before. You're over estimating how much permanent shock loss there is. Also I will demand my hair be extracted uniformly. Hw also said I would have more donor capacity after a 2000 graft surgery. So did erdogan, diep, and rahal. I disagree that my donor looks "really thin" sure it's not as good as it was before, but it's definitely thicker than my hairline and crown, meaning I would have a net gain from a high yield redistribution of some of those hairs to my top. 1500 grafts in my see through and rounded hairline to make it dense and more sharp will make a big cosmetic difference to my forehead and face. Also most of the hairs in my hairline currently are transplanted anyway, they're not native hairs. Also I am willing to sacrifice a little bit of density in my donor in order to fix my crown in the future. What's the point of having a dense donor area if you're thin on top? Makes more sense to redistribute the hairs in my opinion. And idk I've seen some dense high yield looking surgeries from hasson for sure but idk I feel like from pictures and videos I've seen from diep that he gets a higher yield for the amount of grafts used. But I haven't made my decision for sure yet. I'm still considering hw too. I have awhile before a will decide for sure
  19. Yeah I'm optimistic about 2000 grafts with diep. 1500 with good yield in hairline should make it nice and 500 in the crown the improve the density. And in the future another 1000 from diep assuming it goes well in the crown as my hair thins on top.
  20. It'll def help with where my top currently is at. And I'll still have more left. Yeah eventually I'll run out of grafts but that doesn't mean to stop doing hair transplants. I'll keep doing them until I have no more donor to spare.
  21. IvE tried finasteride, laser, and minoxidil. I don't like minoxidil, laser, or finasteride. I want real growing hair, more than I have now So I need transplantation. I also don't want to deal with hassle of microneedling. I want to fix it and forget it. I know I will continue to thin but that's life and I'll still have more donors in that tank after this to fill in a thinning crow. After this my hairline And crown should be good so I'll just need to fill in the top and back as it thins over the next 2-3 decades. I don't want anything to do with finasteride. I had post finasteride syndrome and have read horror stories.
