  1. Hey Johnny, I'm good mate, how are you? Not just yet mate, same situation as you. I'm finding it hard because I keep seeing more good surgeons pop up, haha. I've got a few I'm considering, but I haven't made any enquiries. What about yourself? Anyone in particular? Cheers
  2. Thanks a lot, everyone. Really good advice. I am a NW3, with no crown recession (of yet), and have been on min/fin for about two years. I'll see if I can find similar cases. Getting to the stage now where I am over contemplating, and just want to get it done. Starting to become a bit restrictive on my lifestyle. Thanks again everyone.
  3. Hi all, Recently I've been really narrowing down my options, and will be looking to get a HT this year. Initially, I didn't know where to start, but now, thanks to this forum, I almost don't know who to choose. This wonderful forum has shown me so many great surgeons I had never even heard of. Ideally, I would love to visit Hasson and Wong, but their cost is quite high, at 8$ & 6$ USD per graft (I am an Australian, and the conversion makes me cry). I was tossing up between LA Fue Clinic, Keser, and Dr. Pradeep Sethi at Eugenix, just to name a few. I guess my main question is, when choosing your final surgeon, what specifically tipped the scales in their favour for those that have had transplants? I'm looking for some tools to narrow down my options, it's become very hard to bite the bullet and choose someone. Thanks everyone!
  4. Your results are amazing! Congratulations! You look fantastic
  5. That's awesome mate, so happy for you! It honestly looks like such an amazing result at only a few months, I'm seriously impressed. Their team seems great, from the videos I've watched. Are you able to disclose whether the cash incentive provided a substantial discount? I understand if you don't feel comfortable saying so. Happy growing!
  6. Hey all, I've been posting a bit, and learning a lot thanks to how great/informative everyone on this forum is. I'm getting close to officially starting the process, and was wondering if anyone knew of some surgeons that may suit my case. I am: 27 years old, NW 3, and have been on a compound medication comprising of fin, minoxidil, and some other vitamins for about 1.5-2 years. This has resulted in subtle, new growth around the front of my hair, but my temples are still receding slowly. I guess I am looking for a doctor who can restore my hair-line, and can achieve good density - as the medication seems to be buffering other areas of my hair (according to my dermatologist). From what I've seen, Hasson and Wong do a great job with this sort of case, but does anyone else have any more suggestions? Money isn't too much of an issue, as I have saved considerably for this occasion, and distance too is a non-issue (living in Aus, so everywhere is far away). As usual, thanks so much to you all.
  7. I see, I hadn't even considered it to this depth, thanks a lot man. Are those techniques and tools, usually reserved for clinics where the surgeon does most/all of the work?
  8. Thanks for the info, mate. Mine is a receding issue, largely in the temples and the front. Crown and so on have had no loss so far. Do you know of any doctors that are specialised in these areas?
  9. I was thinking about Cinik/Asmed, for a quicker turn-around, but also looking at Cooley, Feriduni, Konier.
  10. Hey mate, you're definitely correct. It's a hard question to summarise, especially when I don't really know what I'm asking, haha. It's hard being on one side of the world. Most likely FUE dude, but ideally I would want the procedure this year. Yeah for sure, I've crunched some of the figures and they are pretty massive due to the Aussie dollar.
  11. I was just looking at some results, too, and I agree. I've seen a couple of people not too happy also, more-so as time has gone on. Decisions decisions.
  12. This was another option I had been considering. Especially seeing as the journey from Australia isn't as long.
  13. Thanks for the advice, everyone. Dr. Konior seems to be a popular choice, even though he may be expensive. I don't think I've seen much other than good/great results on these forums. I may have a look into his clinic, too.
  14. Hey mate, I wouldn't be too stressed. Your result at 4 months is really good compared to a lot of people. You will see much more growth from mo the 6-8, so try not to stress so much. It really can take a lot of time!
  15. Thanks, Jean. That makes a lot of sense. I'm from Australia, so I'm going to have to travel quite a bit regardless. Feriduni looks to have great results, and I hadn't heard of him before. Thanks a lot for the advice!
