  1. IMO, you’ve made great choices based on solid research and are likely to get a fantastic result. Thanks for taking the time to document and best of luck!
  2. Yes, recipient looks fantastic but scars definitely not cool. Have you asked Hasson about them? Also, do you have any post-op pics of that area?
  3. Yes, this is true. There can be a change of direction on either side of the FUT scar. Some doctors (eg Hasson) take that into account and remove the strip in a way that minimizes change of direction. Also, for those with wavy or curly hair, the change of direction if usually much less noticeable or even totally invisible. But one should definitely consider this point when choosing between FUT and FUE, especially if you have stick straight hair.
  4. +1 to Melvin and Cosmo They will show. How much depends on the punch size, the contrast between the color of your normal skin and your scar tissue, the contrast between your hair color and your scar tissue, and the total number of grafts. They can be very pronounced or in some cases very subtle. Most fall somewhere in between.
  5. Nah, I’m sure they’d be happy to take you and your $9.6 AUD per graft. 😂 Their FUT prices are considerably lower than FUE though. Pricing is on website, but currently 3k FUT is $13k and FUE is $22k. Their FUT is great value, IMO.
  6. You are in Canada and want FUT. Just go to Hasson and Wong. It’s $13k for 3k grafts. That is great value- they are world class at FUT. Don’t try to save a few dollars. You will regret it.
  7. While that is technically correct, it would rarely happen in practice. If the clinic uses microscopes, they’d sort that graft as a double and use it as such. Otherwise they’d sort as a single. Less refined clinics wouldn’t care. Splitting grafts is rarely done with FUE. Takes too much time. It’s much easier to just extract another single.
  8. Yes, exactly. Not to mention that after my 5000 graft “historical” procedure, the back of my head looks better than that guys at that length. Not nearly as shaggy. For any newbies reading this thread, you can’t remove 5000 grafts (15000! follicles) and not leave a mark. No such method exists.
  9. I should add, it’s really quite low in the donor. Not that safe of an area to harvest from. Hopefully it’s just shock loss. Sometimes spots near injection sites can shock out like that.
  10. Do you have any immediate post op pics of the donor? If so, please post them, Assuming that the area wasn’t over harvested, it can be shock loss due to trauma of surgery. If that is the case, it will probably grow back in a few months. What did the surgeon say about it?
  11. ^ this, exactly. There are no sure things in hair transplants but a H&W FUT is about as close as it gets.
  12. This seems incredible, to be able to shave to zero with no visible scarring. In the picture, the skin in the donor above and behind the ear looks like it was digitally smoothed. Was this picture touched up at all? Regardless, the top looks great.
  13. I agree with that. At the same time, in order to maximize sales and better serve local populations, a company like L’Oreal needs to figure out which hair products to market in Thailand, say, vs Denmark, rather then selling the exact same portfolio of products globally. They need some way to account for regional differences, even if it’s imperfect.
  14. I wouldn’t call the classification pseudoscience. There is a documented methodology behind it. It may not be perfect, but it is still useful in this context. “The ethnic origins of subjects assessed here attempted to follow most criteria adopted by ethnologists. The latter combine, for such difficult tasks, the common origin of a given subject with his/her two preceding generations (par- ents and grandparents) together with a common language, all acknowledging that both criteria are less imprecise than genetic standards with regard the vast diversity in DNA polymorphism, worldwide. Interestingly, using language as a discriminant criterion confers to ethnic origin an intrinsic cultural component, thereby considering that humans and their origins cannot be restricted to mere (and complex) biological entities. Accordingly, it comes clear that terms such as “Danish” or “Thai” embraced in the present paper should be solely viewed as arbitrary shortcuts. They, in addition, concern subjects living in cities that may not perfectly reflect the ethnic profile of their respective countries.”
