  1. Thanks. I have to say I’m happy with the results and would have no problem recommending Dr D.
  2. The density is a little thin on my right side and the donor area looks a little bit more obvious than I thought. Don't get me wrong. All in all I'm definitely happy with my choice and how things went and considering I'm only 5 months out, hopefully it will improve further over the next 12 months. Demirsoy also rejected me initially if I recall correctly.
  3. Here you go guys. Almost 5 months post op now. Looking forward to the hair all being the same length. Don't think the result is perfect but I'm pretty happy with my decision all round.
  4. Hi @OliverTja I’m now 15 weeks post op. The redness has gone down but definitely still lingering a bit. My native hair is almost grown back to its normal length and the transplanted hairs have begone to grow in. im happy with my progress so far and my decision to go ahead with the surgery. Even if the final result does not surpass the current state by much I am still happy with the improved appearance of my hairline. Pics taken today and attached.
  5. I actually decide to get on Finasteride a few days after posting my OP (where I said I wouldn't be taking it). Unfortunately I experienced some worrying side effects even taking just 1/4 of the pill. I had sharp pains in my testicles and violent mood swings. I will not go back to taking the medication. I am continuing with the Minoxidil once or twice daily.
  6. Hi @markymarc123, I've attached two pics of the donor area - 1 from a distance and one up close. Hair is still a bit damp from the shower. I've had two haircuts on the back and sides since the operation and the top hasn't been touched. Also attached a pic from above but the recipient area isn't very interesting at the moment. Some hairs there but I'm not sure if they are new growth or the initial hairs still remaining from the transplant. The area is still a bit pink/red. My hair is another couple of months off its "normal" length so looking forward to that. Here's a close up of the recipient area from a couple of days ago to give you a better idea of how it's looking at the moment.
  7. Thanks. The extractions were performed with a motorized tool. I’m almost positive that forceps were used but I was asleep for 90% of this part of the operation.
  8. €1.25/graft but the minimum surgery cost is €2,500 so you need to get >2,000 grafts to hit this threshold. Also hotels and transfers are charged at a fixed rate of €250 on top of the surgery. The total for me was €2,750: - Surgery @ €2,500 (€1.38/graft) - Hotel and transfers @ €250
