  1. 3500 grafts would make a huge difference for you if that is possible. If you go to option #1 or #2 your scar will likely get better not worse. Given that you are in Chicago #1 is a no-brainer. #2 is a great option. Who the hell is Brett Bolton?
  2. At 7 weeks this is probably an ingrown hair or folliculitus along the scar. It’s probably nothing to worry about and will usually resolve in its own. It may pop like a pimple and there may be a small amount if blood or pus if it does. That said, contact your surgeon to be sure. Yours is a bit large and angry looking. He may prescribe antibiotics or just wait and see.

    A normal baseball cap is fine.
  4. I don’t have an opinion on Karadenize. I’m not that familiar with his work. I’ve seen some good results from Eugenix in India mixing beard and scalp hair in high Norwood cases. The surgeons are hands on and it is low cost compared to the clinics in Belgium.
  5. Epinephrine is a vasoconstrictor and helps control bleeding during surgery. Less epinephrine means more bleeding during surgery and more bruising and scabbing afterwards. But by three weeks out the scabbing and bruising was gone and the work looks good.
  6. Great result. Very natural hairline that will age well.
  7. Congratulations! Great result!
  8. Looks really good so far. Day 10 donor pics look fantastic. Density is amazing. Are you taking Finasteride?
  9. All hair- not just transplanted hair- grows back at smaller caliber initially and needs to mature.
  10. Looks more like a Ludwig or perhaps Olsen pattern but it’s hard to tell because it’s combed forward in the pictures. You’ve established that you are a good candidate for a HT through in person consultations with several good surgeons. That’s good. Your question is, between Feriduni and Wong, which one will give you the lowest transection rate and best overall result? Both surgeons are among the best in the world at what they do, are well respected by their peers and highly regarded on this forum. You cannot make a bad choice between the two. I wouldn’t worry about transection numbers with these surgeons. There are no good numbers published to help you there anyway. Both surgeons have very experienced teams and both consistently produce good to excellent yields based on their patient and clinic posted results. I would focus on more subjective factors to help differentiate between the two. Which surgeon’s results look more natural to you? Whose hairlines look better to you? Which clinic have you had better interactions with? Again, you cannot make a bad choice between the two.
  11. Great progress Legend. The best is yet to come.
  12. I think you can have an excellent result. You should focus on the hairline, front and mid sections first. You’ll probably need 5000+ grafts for desirable density. Erdogan, Lorenzo, and Hasson & Wong are your best bets for mega FUE sessions. If you’re willing to do it in stages then you have many additional options. Konior, Feriduni, etc. Also, I’d avoid the temporal regions for now.
  13. I think it looks pretty good actually. It might look even better if you let it grow to a 3/4. I think you made the right call.
  14. I take them too. My doctor wasn’t concerned about it, but definitely ask.
