  1. Yes I would like to add enough density up front that it doesn't appear as sparse and looks full. I did show Nader my old college ID from when I was about 21-22 which I wanted to replicate that hairline, which may have been too aggressive for 1 procedure/low graft amount. If I do return, I will likely request 2-3k in the frontal core. No way 500-1k would be enough I would imagine.
  2. From Today, trying to mimic part down the middle as from pics from a year ago.
  3. I should include how bad it looked prior with additional images. To claim I wasted over 4k grafts is absurd, but I have seen your postings previously and your incessant flaming in your replies is quite offputting.
  4. I sent messages to Nader, and will likely make a final assessment at around the 12-15 month mark. I expressed my desire for more density, and if it doesn't improve in that time frame, he was suggesting a touch-up between 500-1000 additional grafts, yet I am under the impression I would likely need at least twice that amount for fuller density. Is there any other suggestions in terms of maintenance outside of my present routine that should be added/modified? 1. Rogaine Foam twice daily applied to crown and front hairline (after am shower and at night) 2. RegenePure DR/NT. Hair is washed daily, sometimes twice a day if I go to the gym. 3. 5000mcg Biotin at bedtime. 4. 1.25mg Finasterie. (5mg tabs cut into quarters)
  5. @gillenator, correct 2200 in the frontal core, but the latest pictures I have taken are from today which is almost at the 10th month mark.
  6. I'm on Finasteride, Rogaine Foam 2x daily, and use RegenePure DR/NT also taking 5000mcg biotin. Was certainly hoping for more at the hairline. Going to send a text to Nader to see what he states.
  7. Admittedly, haven't reached out to Nader as of yet. The crown certainly has improved. Just really awaiting at least 1 year before I can firmly believe whether I will need (likely) a 2nd go around.
  8. I'm almost a year out myself from 4350 FUE graft surgery from Nader. I'm likely going to go for a 2nd procedure as well for more density if it doesn't improve much more by month 18.
  9. Haven't updated my thread in a while. This was taken 3/12/2019 so a bit shy of 10 months.
  10. Figured I'd update this 4 months out. This post includes images from 3 months out 8/20.
  11. This is present day, 3 weeks after. All scabs are out, starting to shed the donor hairs pretty good, also have a lot of bumps/pimples in the back near recipient area in the crown as well as some near the front.
  12. First two are after the 2nd procedure, and last 2 are the after flying back the next day.
  13. Below are just prior, and images taken after the first procedure.
  14. About 3 weeks out now after going to see Dr. Nader in Reynosa, MX. After speaking with Brenda on the phone back in March, tried scheduling earliest appointment possible. Was advised I'd need between 3.5-4k grafts to cover the crown and front. I would prefer not to make numerous trips and have a good hairline so was willing to pay any additional for further density, and Luis advised that he'd rather take precaution to not do excessive grafts as too many may stress the skin where the grafts may be rejected, so went with 4,350. Background, 36 year old male of mixed Euro/Latin ancestry This was a 2 day procedure. First day was approximately 2,150 covering the crown area and going through the middle, the 2nd day continuing up the middle and the frontal hairline.temple area. I was likely close to a Norwood 4A. Below are before and immediately after.
