I am 37. I have been losing hair since age 20. My Dad is NW6, so were one of my Dad's brothers and my maternal Grandfather. I also have had dandruff on and off for a long time.
Previous hair transplant: In 2011, FUT 2250 grafts with Dr Madhu Pathuri, (no pictures) I think I was NW5 back then before the transplant. A couple of years back, I had some trauma and I feel it affected my scalp as well. I feel I may have lost transplanted hairs in the front.
Medication: FInasteride 1 mg for close to 10 years. Minoxidil 5% on and off for 7-8 years.
I don't want to add unnecessary details here. At this point, because I am on a non-immigrant Visa, I am looking at surgeons within US. Since I already have a scar from previous FUT and have advanced hair loss, I am considering FUT. I am in CA. At the top of my list are Gabel, Shapiro and Cooley. I have ruled out the ones with long wait times.
I want to improve the overall look. I am not sure what is possible. I don't have any specific hair line in mind. I would like to get the transplant done in 1-3 months.
I am open to suggestions.
