  1. Interesting question as 2 of my friends used smile against my advice and to be fair the have both a good results. I would say out of any of the cheap clinics these do good results from what I've seen especially in person, was very surprised
  2. Good man enjoy, maybe a thread for this one? Would like to see a crown result from dr b
  3. Thanks mate really appreciate it. I am one happy man my barber commented the other day saying hes seen a few ht now but mine is by far the best result which is great to hear. To be fair I was never one of those guys who got to depressed with hair loss I just didn't like how it was making me look so decided it was a ht or a skinhead. I am grateful I can try different styles and even tried the hairdryer a few times haha. So far best change I have ever made and I would encourage anyone to do it if it's a issue. This forum was great in educating me and exploring all options available, so thanks to you and your team as you boys do a great job. 👍👍
  4. Haha thanks once I compared my pics I was balled over with the transformation. My chubby bald cousin can do one haha,
  5. Hi gents, Apologises it has been a while I decided to just wait until 12 months to post as I was saying the same thing every month ha. A summary of the last 12 months which flew by is that I made an excellent decision to finally commit to my ht and also in the research to use Dr B and his team top class and really do care. I am still trying different styles but it's a good problem to have ha. I have posted some pics below including outdoor ones to see it as it looks in sunlight (very rare in the uk) and one pic I did as a comparison from a year ago that showed me how far I had come and definitely impressed me. I met with dr b and hilda 2 weeks ago in London to show my results and make sure everything was as he expected. He made a recommendation of going on oral minoxidil instead of regaine which he says in better, so looking into that. We had a good chat and he explained one side was a little weaker than he was happy with so has offered me a free top up in that area to meet his high standards. This confirmed that I made the right decision at the start in picking a doctor who doesn't just want your money. So some time in the near future I will go get my top up but I am a happy man who now owns 2 combs haha! Any questions give me a shout
  6. Hi pal, Flight out was empty and back full haha always the way. The flights were fine paid extra and got a front seat to get off asap. I managed to spray ok every 2 hours just used the toilets in the airport and then reapplied the bandana. You can pay for the coach at the airport and end point really easy every 30mins no problem at all. You can get a taxi each way but as I say think it was€70 each way or a€10 euro coach seat so j decided to save some pennies. I was thinking about driving but because I am from Manchester it would of taken forever rather than a 1/2 hour flight with a beer in hand. Good luck anyway I know it's a big step
  7. Hi Danny, I went last year nearly to the day , very happy. I travelled by Ryanair from Manchester to Brussels smaller airport for around £70 return. Then used a shared coach service for €10 if I remember correctly rather than pay €70 on a taxi. I stayed at the hotel recommended by bhr which is 1 minute walk away and a comfortable hotel and stayed for 2 extra days to help recover. I just wondered about and because you have a bandana from the clinic no one ready notices you. I originally planned to get a taxi to the airport after surgery but felt comfortable enough with my bandana to get the coach again and had no problem. Any more info let me know
  8. Ahhh ok pal happy growing it's a rollercoaster but enjoy it
  9. Hi arminho, Congratulations on your ht and I hope you get the desired results. I must say though imo you are probably on the low graft side for a dense result as I would of thought 1500-2000 would be more appropriate but that's just my opinion. Also on 1 side there seems to be a gap between the new grafts and old hair if this is the case it seems unusual and I would ask the clinic why. As I say hopefully it will turn out well but just my observations. Regards
  10. Looking good already, I was considering doing this also but I am a bit lazy haha. Keep us updated
  11. Surprised how well in actually looks now, as I thought the graft num ers were far to low. I personally would try and add more density probably around another 1000 or so just behind the front to boost the cover but you have come along way from the start and overall looks well
  12. Agreed with above all looks on track, try and just chill it's a long process. Once your about 4-6 months in it becomes more enjoyable when you see progress.
  13. Thanks Cosmo I will check them out, think.ive had the gummies before but definitely look at the others
  14. Hi gents, I am 10 months post op now and so far a happy camper. My question is what do you more experienced ht chaps swear by in regards to shampoos/conditioners etc mainly for hair care and adding volume. Also any vitamins which incorporate all the right vitamins in one pill rather than taking loads? I am currently just using head and shoulders and taking local drug store hair vitamins but wondering if there is anything better I could be doing. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hi Melvin, I will definitely get this done if it can help with anyone journeys then no probs.
  16. Hey pal am from Manchester so know about uk prices being daft. I went Belgium not much difference just better doctors imo. If you're not happy look seriously at Turkey such as edorgen, kesser, demisroy etc who are alot cheaper. Two of my friends have used smile clinic and have had good results for £1600 but I would probably go with a more established clinic for a top up.
  17. Hi tekken, I haven't had a ht in Turkey but have been many times from the uk on holiday and have never had any issues it's as safe as anywhere in this current climate. I am currently looking at my next holiday in Turkey without any hesitation whatsoever also a lot less guns than the US haha. Enjoy
  18. Most clinics dont do symmetric hairlines as apparently they look unnatural and once grew in you wouldn't be able to notice anyway
  19. I can remember actually thinking I would need a 2nd ht asap which really frustrated me but a few months later its back to normal and looks fine. I might get it a 2nd one on the crown in the future if it gets worse but that was always the plan enjoy the process because once the ugly duckling phase is gone it's a good ride.
  20. My crown went worse post ht like yours which worried me but went back to normal after a few months I would try not to worry and play the long game you have choose a good doctor so sure your results will be good
  21. In my opinion I think the results look well! Everyone wants thick density but it is not going to happen. I would hope you wouldn't need to use toppik anymore but that may come over the next few months, if I was you I would be happy with possibly looking for a 2nd OP to add more density if you feel you need it in the future.
  22. Same as above demisroy is doing great results in a cheaper price range
  23. Haha thanks pal yeah been doing crossfit, so hopefully will be a slim lad with a good hair do to match soon haha
