  1. There are plenty of doctors who COULD do what you're asking, because it's not all that difficult, but it's a question of who WILL. It's NOT more aesthetically complex than being conservative. Any competent surgeon would be capable of doing this work, but that isn't the point. You're not on medication and unwilling to try, you want a juvenile hairline at a relatively young age, and you have a bleeding issue. There's a list of recommended surgeons on the site. Look at their results and pick a few whose work you like. Get consults with ALL of them, and at least one in person consultation wit
  2. Sure, but how many grafts do you have in the tank compared to how many grafts you would need to cover your scalp? Reputable doctors likely won't want to touch this kind of hairline goal at your age it you're not stable on medication. If you're going to pursue surgery at all you should start by getting an in-person consultation from a surgeon who can examine your scalp for areas of miniaturization and provide an estimate on your total donor grafts available. All that said, that hairline would still be a massive gamble. Family history is a guess at best.
  3. I believe by day 13 they should be totally secure but feel free to check with the clinic.
  4. It's up to you whether you want to ask the clinic to touch up the work, but based on photos I wouldn't bother if it were me. Unless those sparse areas are much more obvious in different lighting or you desperately want to comb your hair that particular way, why mess with it? If it looks good you win.
  5. Looks about right so far. It's obviously harder to tell with unshaven transplants but you look like you're doing a fine job of cleaning in these photos. Have you mentioned how old you are? Didn't see that in the original post.
  6. No matter how much you liked a first consultation with a surgeon (any surgeon) it's always best to get multiple opinions. In theory everybody should be recommending a similar graft count and strategy for your goals. If one doctor says something wildly different than the others I would generally consider that a red flag. There are loads of cheap clinics in Turkey and just as many horror stories to go with them. There are good budget clinics, but be careful.
  7. Nobody is going to have shock loss from PRP. They're not making incisions in your head like they do with surgery, just injections. Any hair that sheds after a PRP treatment will either come back (likely thicker) or was already walking "dead" anyway.
  8. This is a very thoughtful and detailed response. I think we don't often touch on scalp issues in this forum because honestly most of us are simply dealing with androgenetic alopecia, and this is good information. With that said, I agree 100% that the first thing to look at is simply the fact that the graft count was likely insufficient to meet patient goals and expectations so there were bound to be issues from the start.
  9. Yeah, don't neglect the washing. One if the doctors here had a video about a patient who neglected washing for the first couple of weeks and then when he finally did wash he tore out a huge number of grafts because the scabbing had gotten out of controk.
  10. Yeah, this looks plenty familiar. My frontal thinning is very similar. Thanks for including the additional photos. Without these kinds of images earlier stage diffuse thinning can be tougher to see.
  11. From what I understand he has a relatively low daily graft count per day. If I remember your thread correctly @Rolandasyou had around 3,500 but spread over two days. If a small punch size is being used and total punches per day is kept low, possibly this leads to a faster healing time because the total scalp trauma at one time is kept to a minimum.
  12. Yeah, a six year update is usually unheard of, but this result still holds up even though medication wasn't taken.
  13. There are plenty of cases on here where grafts were placed into thinning areas successfully, but it is a risk because shock loss does happen and there are a few stories on here about that as well. One factor is your unique physiology and unfortunately that's something that's hard for you or the doctor to gauge. No way to know how your body will respond, although being on Finasteride helps reduce this risk. The other is skill of the surgeon. If a surgeon transects an existing follicle trying to transplant a new one, that transected follicle won't grow any more hair. If you're ref
  14. I'll be interested to see how this goes. You've got a decent amount of native hair so as long as there are no issues with shock loss I think you have potential for a very nice result. I appreciate your breakdown of how the plan was mapped on the scalp. Donor looks good. Any notable pain or discomfort so far? Edit: I personally wouldn't drop the Minoxidil at this point. It's probably keeping your native hair thicker and healthier in appearance, and even those weaker hairs partially rejuvenated by Minoxidil can contribute to the fullness and density in your result if the doctor
