  1. wow look at that ... thats beautiful. do you know how many grafts were placed in the temple points? H&W results really do put most other clinics to shame.
  2. Admittedly there have been some reports that Dr Diep's assessment of potential HT candidates has been troubling of late. @giegnosiganoe mentioned it recently in this thread https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/57595-should-i-switch-from-diep-to-hasson/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-552445 and @Biceps has said something about it in the past as well. https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/55726-hair-loss-getting-worse-on-big-3-weak-donor-area-what-are-my-options/ This is not to say that you aren't a good candidate, but for peace of mind it might be worth looking for a
  3. Some clinics will admittedly implant at half the density knowing full well the patient will be unsatisfied and will only HAVE to return for more surgery with them. My guess would be that's whats happened here. Please take the advice of other members here and consider another clinic - with the suggestions of Bloxham, Konior and H&W by another member the obvious starting points.
  4. ^^^ that seems legit only thing id worry about is how far the FUT scar actually goes around on the side of your head, and if you would potentially roll over the grafts in your sleep
  5. I had grafts put in my recipient area and into my FUT scar at the same (really really mind-numbingly stupid approach pursued by the surgeon). Only thing I could do to protect all the grafts was sleep sitting up, so i took my travel pillow and secured it under my shirt so it wouldnt move from around my neck. Then i surrounded myself with a lot of other pillows (big and small) keeping my arms and body in a sitting position. Didnt get much sleep admittedly. Face down pillow might be the best option. or get a massage table and bring a masseuse along for the ride.
  6. hair looks phenomenal man. congrats! when you say your hair texture was hard to manage at longer lengths, was it always that way (even before your HT)?
  7. theres absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to improve yourself and your appearance. This forum is generally conservative in it pronouncements of getting a HT (and I believe rightly so) because getting a HT is a lifelong commitment, surgery always carries with it certain risks, and ideally should only really be undertaken once all other options are exhausted but given your amount of loss, how you wear your hair (and without knowledge of medical therapies taken, family history etc) I agree the risks outweigh the rewards at the moment. Maybe just monitor the progress and consider a H
  8. if thats the area youre roughly looking to cover im honestly not sure where 1500 grafts would go. but again its how you wear your hair. that style manages to hide everything pretty naturally.
  9. honest advice here ... i dont think its worth it buddy. and im sure your fiance will still marry you without the extra 3mm of hair youre looking to fill in. (i could be wrong though and its just how you wear your hair ... worn back or up usually reveals the weaknesses). spend the money youll save on more alcohol for the wedding party
  10. i want your hair. wait where is the extra hair going again? its hard to tell given you wear your hair like that, but im not sure getting a HT is going to give you a big cosmetic improvement tbh. your loss looks very minimal are you wanting to fill in the temples slightly, or lower the hairline? whats the goal?
  11. visited them 2 years ago - some guy walked in after me who i assumed was also there for a consultation - turns out he was a patient and considered a "success". Cant say my consultation was all that informative either (when i asked about my donor Knudsen said "i could have 5,6,7 transplants, as many i wanted" even though every other clinic online told me i had hit donor depletion). I believe I paid somewhere around $50-100 for that consultation. In terms of results Knudsen has issues with density, so much so I think this should be obvious from their results page online. Ive also seen it i
  12. Well Konior and Hattingen are both clearly worth looking into. And by considering these clinics youre also getting the option to pursue FUT if they believe your donor is more suited to it. Every donor is different and Some people are more suited to one extraction method more than the other. As for FUE - Feriduni (i admire his artistry), De Freitas (hairline design), Bisanga (hes just always good), HLC (stick and place clinic in Turkey BUT i heard the post op care is minimal). As @Gasthoerer always says though theres no perfect clinic - just the clinic thats right for you. You need t
