  1. I traveled from within the US. Roundtrip flight was around $250, hotel cost for 6 days was around $600.
  2. @Kiwi Guy It was $13,5 but people should also factor in cost for travel. I know fin is basically the front line of defense and proven to have great results but I can't risk the potential side effects. And I get that the chances of getting those are low but I feel like over the course of years it can't be healthy for you. People already complain about low sex drive, watery semen, gyno..it's just all too much. I can't risk stuff down there
  3. @Phil36fromaus summarized it pretty well. Dr. Konior's initial assessment over email from just looking at pictures was that I would need 3,000 grafts (2,000 for the hairline and 500-1,000 for the middle area). However, he mentioned that a conservative approach would be to go for 2,000 as the higher you go up the more of a risk you are for shock loss. So me being risk averse, I decided to go with the conservative approach. Looking back, if I could make that decision again I would go for the 3,000 grafts. Because at this point I will more than likely need another HT in 5 years or so as I don't take Fin or Minox so if I had went for the 3,000 maybe that timeline could've been delayed further. Who knows though. If I could get even 30% more density and thickness of what I have now, I'll be happy with the result. I'm almost at 6 months so hopefully in the next 3 months, I'm hoping and praying I get more density.
  4. Hi All, Below are pictures at around the 2-3 month mark I think, can't really remember when I took those pics. And then followed up with pictures I took today. In all, I'm at 5 and a half months and the progress looks decent. I'm definitely hoping for some more thickness in the front and a better haircut will make things look better as well.
  5. @RecessionProof I told him 3. Good luck! The first month is a complete drag but it gets a bit easier after that. The part I hate the most is that whenever I move my neck up, down, sideways I feel like i'm stretching the scar as it feels really tight but I guess that's expected and should hopefully go away in the coming months.
  6. Hi All - Been traveling for work. Not much to show at this point. I'll try to post pics when I get home but just more of the same. Full on ugly duckling phase.
  7. Congrats on your journey. Hopefully you've achieved the results you wanted. But you should know you're one of those few people that actually look good bald. Like a Bruce Willis or Jason Statham.
  8. I had a FUT and my incision area is still tender when I rest my head on a pillow, which is expected. I also feel like my incision area is a bit tight but that's also to be expected so i'm just waiting it out at this point. Other than that I guess I'm healing well. I'm in prime ugly duckling phase right now. I do also totally trust Dr. K and it almost seems like he can do more with less grafts than other doctors but even in my case I wish we had gone more aggressive but he seemed a bit conservative so I didn't wanna push it. I've noticed that Dr. K and Dr. Nadimi (his fellow doctor) seem to stay in the 1500 range for FUE and 2000-2400 range for FUT. Just something I've noticed. Was yours a FUE this time around? I fear I'll also have to get a FUE in the future to add a bit more coverage as I don't plan on taking fin or using minox
  9. I think you and I basically had our procedures done around the same time as I was also there in mid June. Can I ask why you only opted for 1,500 as it seems you could've done with more? Also, was this a FUE or FUT? You and I are pretty much in similar conditions. Best of luck to both of us.
  10. So obnoxious for people to stop updating their threads. If you started it, you might as well finish it regardless of the results.
  11. I started using ACV diluted 1:1 with water and sprayed it 20 mins before showering and I felt it helped a bit but my scalp is still dry after a full week. Not sure what else to do here. I'll try doing coconut oil overnight and see along with the ACV to see if that helps.
  12. I was pretty much out the entire procedure but from what I could tell he uses one main tech and sometimes two but I'm almost sure he was behind me the entire time.
  13. I've been using coconut oil and it's not helping at all. I put it on and leave it in for an hour before showering. I think I may switch to spraying a 1:1 mixture of water and apple cider vinegar 10 mins before showering and see how that works for a week.
  14. Yeah, I'm hoping that it and it will go away in a few months. Feels very strange though. I'll keep this thread updated.
