    Nope just one session for hairline restoration. Maybe crown down the line..

    Nope just Rogaine. No intention of taking other medicine.

    Three months in... a bunch of the transplanted hair did not fall out and grew instead. Some tiny hairs starting to poke out (hard to tell from the pics), nothing to get excited about yet. Sorry I suck as a photographer.

    So just over a month now, not much to report but thought I'd give an update. Donor area a little sore still but seems to be healing ok. Recipient area still red and still has a bunch of transplanted hair left, haven't gone back to work yet. Sorry for the low quality pic.

    Some people say less shock loss, more density, saves donor hair, and is way cheaper. I'm happy so far with my FUE decision.

    Hi guys. So its done, went with the full shave. Dr. Rahal and team were excellent, I felt well taken care of during the entire experience, and boy what an experience. Some swelling as expected in the face, most intrusive part of post-op is the sleeping at 45 degrees and the weird hats but definitely not a big deal for a week or two. Missing the gym the most. I requested 4-6 weeks to work from home so by the time I get back I should mostly look the way I did when they last saw me, I've been pretty open with this anyway. Sorry I didn't get to update during Day 0 and 1 but here are some Pre-op & Day 2 pics. Lighting is a bit weird/yellow in the bathroom so take that into consideration. 2800 FUE grafts on the nose, conservative hairline restoration only.. crown later sometime down the road maybe. Doesn't seem like there's going to be any noticeable scarring at all and I plan to buzz the back and sides to a 2 guard. Pretty pleased so far just tempering my expectations and joy for when I actually see results! Does someone need to move this thread into a different section?

    Hey guys. My FUE surgery will be this Friday, just need some last minute advice. I would really like your opinion as to whether or not to completely shave my head. I would like to avoid this if at all possible but would not want to sacrifice quality on the end result. Can I get your input on pros and cons and reasoning please? Thanks

    I don't recall exactly, 3-4k maybe for my situation. Just ask them they'll tell you the standard pricing.

    OK so just got back from my meet and greet with Dr. Rahal himself. Spent 20 minutes to measure my head, talk to me about my concerns, and gave me a recommendation, all while people were rushing him to get to his next appointment. Instead of rushing he was calm and stayed with me as long as I needed, which I respect greatly (maybe because I owe him 5 digits and the next guy didnt? lol). We confirmed the ~5000 graft donor availability, that 2800-3000 grafts could easily be done, and that 45ish follicles per square cm was achievable with that amount. He checked my scalp elasticity and to my surprise said it was fine for FUT. Donor density also fine for FUT. However, he did notice that my skin scars with pigment, and also looked at an old booster shot scar on my shoulder which has grown in weird ways. There is also apparently an Asian predisposition to bad body skin healing leading to larger and more colored scars which he informed me of. So based on all that, he felt confident that the original FUE recommendation would suit me better. He also explained that in the last 2 years his practice has made great improvements on FUE technique (implanters, dull punch?, etc) and he sees zero difference now in terms of yield, density, shock loss etc between his FUT and FUE procedures. I'm not sure I buy this 100% but at least he said the words and seemed sincere. Long story short I walked out mostly reassured and on track for my end of Aug surgery. Funny aside, I also just had my eyes lasered, and I am that one guy you never hear about.. can't see properly and have to go back. So not feeling great with surgery odds at the moment.. if something is going to go wrong its going to go wrong with me. Fingers crossed guys. Funny aside #2, the receptionist there is dressed like a club girl, reason to choose Rahal on its own.

    OK you guys win lol, managed to get an appt with Rahal in two weeks for a final consult.

    Too late lol. He doesn't do FUT in Toronto yet and apparently my scalp would need some serious massaging to handle it.

    OK thanks!

    Well thats scary. Can you elaborate please, I will only see Dr. Rahal the day before the surgery and I'm assuming I will have had to pay the entire balance by then.

    Nadimi vs H&W vs Rahal - Consults

    Yes, I can't remember how many days in Toronto but its not alot. And FUE only. I ended up going with Rahal, will turn this into an update thread.

    I forgot to mention that in the Rahal consult they did assess my scalp stretchiness and deemed that I would need some serious stretching for FUT. Not sure if that changes things?
