  1. Does the pain and trauma from getting tattooed have any effect on FUE growth? How long should you wait until after your surgery? edit* I’m not talking about a hair tattoo, I meant getting tattooed on your arm and chest. Sorry for the confusion.
  2. Density does need a touch up however the hairline outline looks very good and natural. You'll have a killer result with another small procedure. Although I will say you really didn't need to a HT to begin with. Only someone that is obsessed with HT's would notice that you were balding.
  3. growth at 3 months is considered early, most people start growing at month 4 I think.
  4. That's one of the cleanest and most dense packed post op pics I've ever seen, there's no reason why you shouldn't have a great result in a year!
  5. I've heard PRP is very expensive but some doctors swear by it after a HT and that it maximizes and speeds up your final result. Some doctors don't bring it up. Is there actual any evidence that proves PRP actually does allow you to have a better result after a HT?
  6. My surgeon has been excellent with his follow up and he's going to fix it for me. Because I did not reach out to the surgeon privately first, I am requesting this thread to be deleted if possible. This is completely my choice and not based off anyone's influence.
  7. Looks great! And it looks like he is responding very well to fin. Did you already have these 2 years post op pics or did he recently come in?
  8. When I first got into fitness, this youtuber was one of the guys I followed for advice and I remember, even before I knew anything about wigs and hair transplants, something was off about his hairline too me but I couldn't put my finger on it...like it looks too thick and weird that his hairline is pushed back to the top of his head but his temples still so low. Add to that he has that curved female hairline. I also frequent bodybuilding.com and his videos are quite popular on there and there has been numerous members on there that pointed out his odd hairline and think it's a wig.
  9. Your hair "loss" is completely normal for someone approaching 40, I can promise you that you have better hair than most people your age. But if you really want to get a HT, I would look into a hairline specialist. Keep in mind because your hair is naturally thick, you will risk shock loss with a HT, which take many months to heal. Dr. Diep is one name that comes to mind for hairlines.
  10. Problem with that is money for most folks. You're talking about a difference of $100 a month if not more.
  11. I've been taking generic Finasteride from Costco and I just wanted to see if anyone knows if other pharmacies (like HEB or Kroger) is considered more reputable and has more effective Finasteride. Or if it's all literally the same?
  12. Recreating temporal points is a very challenging skill only a short list of doctors have master. That's why hair pieces still look like crap today because most of them don't blend in well with temporal points too far back.
