  1. So having read all this I’m now a bit confused... Is there a consensus that Fin can actually cause hair loss or additional shedding of native hair?? I thought the whole point of it was to prevent hair loss and keep what was still there. Is it generally accepted that in some men the medication will actually have the opposite of the intended effect??
  2. Thanks @Legend007 ... fingers crossed 🤞
  3. I’d just try to stay positive and hang in there @ViciousKeepLeftSign. I’m no expert, but I’m a little ahead of you in the process and can say that aesthetically things do get worse before they get better... just gotta focus on the destination. Good luck!
  4. Awesome results. Congrats. Talk about money well-spent!
  5. That was a major concern of mine and I asked about it frequently during the procedure. I was told by both the Dr and the technician doing the extractions (who was amazing by the way) that while the extra bleeding made their jobs a bit more difficult, that it wouldn’t impact the results. As for the scabbing, although it was likely more excessive as a result, I was just more patient in allowing the scabs time to fall off. Only once or twice did I see what may have been a follicle come off with a scab. I try to use those Day 21 photos as a metric... all the scabs are gone at that point but the implanted hairs (pre-shed) pretty much all seem to still be in place. So I’m trying to take that as a positive indication. Time will tell.
  6. Thanks. He did mention the measure, but it was said so quickly in the context of the initial discussion that morning that I don’t recall the estimate. I do know that his goal was to pack as densely as possible given the thinness/fineness of my hair type.
  7. Day 46. Completely shedded at this point. Trying to keep the rest of my hair really short (#1 clipper) to detract from obvious, but it is what it is I guess. The rest of my hair grows pretty quick (this is 5 days growth) so I’m shaving the non-recipient part of my scalp weekly. Definitely not an ideal look at the office, but hoping it’ll all soon pass and begin to fill in. Redness still quite prominent. Overall, just a rough period in general.
  8. @highlander6 great results! Congrats
  9. Good luck! Will be following your progress.
  10. Day 32 photos below - some taken with flash, some without. A majority of the transplanted hair has shed at this point. Recipient area of my scalp remains partially numb/desensitized. Pink skin discoloration is prominent. Ugly duckling phase in full effect. 🦆🦆🦆
  11. @CosmoKramer looks great. Congrats! How do you feel about the texture of the hair? How long does it take for hair to start feeling smooth / laying naturally? I notice a lot of guys appear to have what looks to be coarse curly hair following a HT while only some small other minority of guys seem to get a smooth look to the hair.

  13. Welcome, and good luck! With 4-5 months leave from work you should be absolutely fine. If you shave your head with the surgery and keep it cleanly trimmed, by the time you return to work it will simply look like you have a normal short-shaved head. People will be so shocked to see you with a shaved head they won’t even be thinking about a hair transplant. I wouldn’t worry if I were you.
  14. Looking good at 80days in! Best of luck.
  15. Not sure. I was face down in a pillow during the extractions but assuming they know what they’re doing. Would leave that question to folks on this forum who know more. I do know that the majority of the bruising was on the sides where the skin is thinner.
