  1. 4350 is what was necessary with the thinness of my hair to make this work. Anything less would’ve looked thin. Under very harsh lighting I can still see about an inch into my hairline if my hair is styled back. In my opinion, that’s what sets Hasson apart from the rest. He tells you how much you “really” need.
  2. 40. I stopped fin in August. Was on it for a total of 9months. I actually felt like more of my hair was coming out in the shower when I was using it so I stopped. so far I haven’t experienced any rapid loss elsewhere.
  3. Dude, you’re looking good and right on track. You probably stare in the mirror everyday so it’s tougher to notice the growth/change, but to me it’s apparent. Keep giving it time. Next 6 months is when the magic happens. Below are your pics side by side from month 4 to month 5. Definitely improving. Hang in there! It’ll only continue to get better
  4. I chose it. I always had (or at least used to have) a minor/soft widows peak. I showed him a picture of me in my twenties and said “can we recreate that?” And he did. I did have him draw on several hairlines before settling on one. (You can see in some of my operation day pics posted earlier that there’s several lines on my scalp.) Don’t be scared to be picky. i drew them on my head at home too before going so I knew what I wanted. The new widows peak is a but more pronounced than I had practiced drawing, but I like it. Hasson was really patient with that stage and we discussed options and “the look” it would likely generate. He’s good.
  5. Thanks very much. Not only Canadians. I traveled from The US and the guys in there with me that day were Israel and somewhere in the Far East. I would select him no matter where I was based.
  6. 1 YEAR MARK 12 months ago today I was on a plane home from Dr Hasson’s clinic in Vancouver with a face swollen full of saline, and a scab covered head, wondering what the next few months would be like and how this would all turn out. The first three months were definitely rough, but at month 4 things began to turn a corner, and from there it continued to improve. And looking back today it was certainly money well-spent and I’d recommend it to anyone who was in my position. if anyone ever has questions about the process I’d be happy to answer. I never would’ve selected Hasson or been as well prepared as I was mentally for the journey without the benefit of this site. So all I can offer to do is pay it forward to others. Thanks to all the guys on this site for their support along the way, and good luck to those if you beginning your own journey. *pics below were taken today at barber shop w pretty harsh lighting. no sprays, fibers, or fillers.
  7. Hair looks great. Congrats! Certainly have come a long way.
  8. Ya, once I shed (at about 3.5 weeks) there wasn’t much to shave up front for the first month or two so I just keep the rest of my head shaved with a #1 guard. Then as the front started to grow I’d just hit the whole head with a #1 until about month four, then I started to let it go. Good luck!
  9. Good luck man! Video is a nice touch, certainly looked like a lux trip. Hope the results turn out just as plush. At the moment everything looks good. A few tough months ahead, but you looked good with a shaved head, so that’ll be an easy way to wear it until you’re through the ugly duckling phase until 4+ months. Keep us posted.
  10. @Yolando looking good on the growth, congrats. You are certainly through the worst of it now, and Im hopeful you’ll end up with a great result. Now that you're developing solid fuzz everywhere and the new hairline is showing, have you considered taking a very short clipper setting and shaving the entire head down to a 1 or 0? When I was at the 3-5 month post-op stage, my native areas of hair would always outgrow the transplanted area, and I found that shaving the whole head uniformly made everything much less noticeable and helped me deal socially. it had no impact on the final result and (I believe) it also got rid of a lot of the kinked and twisted hair growth that usually comes first in the transplanted areas. ....just a suggestion. If the scar prevents you from doing so however, I get it Either way, congrats on your progress so far and happy growing. You’re going to have a solid head of hair by Spring!
  11. Hey Fellas. 11 Month update below. Hair is starting to smooth out at bit. Getting less kinky and curly by the week, which is great because it’s becoming more manageable. Daily shampoo and conditioning with quality products seems to be helping in that regard as well. Overall the hairline is super strong. Hasson said the plan was to build a “wall of hair up front” and that’s exactly what he did. Given the extent of the pre-existing hair loss it’s still naturally a bit thinner behind that wall, but absent heavy studio-type lighting, you’d never know. In one of the pics below I styled it so you can see where some of that thinness is, but one spritz of Toppik and its unnoticeable. This procedure has been a huge change in my life. With the exception of the first 3-4 ugly duckling months, not a day has since passed that I haven’t been so glad I made the decision to go to Hasson. Any questions, LMK.
