  1. Thank you all for the advice. I’ve decided to give it a couple of years to see how things progress. Can I ask, if I was to get a strip procedure in the future, where would they take the strip from? Would they stick within the fue extraction sites? Or would they take the strip from the area above? Cheers
  2. Hi thank you all for your replies! I actually made a misteake in my post, I was actually only 20 years old when I had my procedure, not 21! JeanLDD I won’t go back there because they overharvested my donor area. Sean + Shera, you both mention that beard/body hairs don’t look natural most of the time. However I plan on buzz cutting my hair once I’ve had a transplant using them grafts. Hopefully that would eliminate the unnatural appearance/wiry nature of the body hairs? It seems from your comments that my best option for the moment is to wait a while. Although this isn’t exactly what I wanted to hear, I will consider it.
  3. Also Spex, Do you find that beard grafts are inconsistent in terms of survival? Or inconsistent in aesthetic appearance? (eg too coarse/wiry etc). Thanks again for the help
  4. Hi spex, thanks for your comment. My question would be, I understand that hair loss is progressive, but if I cover the top of my head in grafts, would this not cover me for a nw6 in the future? I would prefer to act before I’m left looking unnatural. Cheers
  5. Hello folks, Firstly thanks to everyone who provide their opinions regularly on this forum, although this is my first post many of you have provided me with a lot of useful information over the past couple of years. My story: Currently 22 years old male from London, started losing my hair at a very young age, got an FUE transplant at the age of 21!! In this thread I do not want to say who was my chosen surgeon, as I am going to write a full thread on my experience and before/after pictures etc. So at the time of my transplant I was on propecia, but unfortunately I had to stop taking the drug due to sides 6 months ago. I now use Finasteide gel (topical). Anyway, I had 3000 FUE grafts and it was an amazing result, however my hair loss is progressing and it doesn't look as good now. I use toppik and with that it looks good. My plans: So I think a few people will think that my best option would be to wait, but I am planning on getting another hair transplant. My donor area is no longer plentiful, but I have been told I have 3,000-4,000 scalp hair remaining. I am thinking about going to Dr Umar for a transplant consisting of 1/3 scalp and 2/3 beard grafts, and adding density to the whole top of my head. I would keep the hair buzzed down and combine it with temporary smp. Dr Umar said that from the pictures, he estimates this could be achieved with 3,000-4,500 grafts (1/3 scalp, 2/3 beard). My thinking is that, say if I got 4,500 grafts, that would bring my total up to 7,500 grafts. This should provide adequate coverge in the nw5 area, right? The purpose of this thread was to get impartial advice, I am already grateful for all that I have learned from this forum, and would appreciate some advice on my specific case. Cheers, Ronnie
