  1. Interesting. Your donor looks much healthier here than in your other pics from this year. What length is that? I'd send them all of to a few docs for there responses (Bisanga, BLoxham, Konior, Feriduni, Gabel all gave me the most straightforward consultations)
  2. ok) sorry if i came across paternalistic - this industry can just be a bit rough. having temple recession suggests balding btw, but it could just be a progression to a mature hairline. hard to say taking finasteride it seems has some pretty big risks as well which i hope you discussed with your prescribing doctor; https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/55085-court-let-merck-hide-secrets-about-propecia-risks/ https://www.hairlosslearningcenter.org/topic/merck-makers-of-propecia-caught-lying-for-second-time/3390 hope everything works out for you sir
  3. Yeah it must be a hairpiece on entourage and his real hair on that latest show. Guess the makers of that show refused to fork out the extra cash on a fancy wig. That halo effect must be tough for Piven to work with as well, as directors dont want to spend extra time setting up the lighting etc just to shoot an actors hair in a favourable way. As for Biden I feel like we are almost on the verge of creating a Biden hair timeline LOL.
  4. As youre just 21 and we don't have any pictures I'd be concerned if it is a "very high hairline" or you actually have the beginning stages of male pattern baldness (and thus might bald even further). A lot of physicians are uncomfortable with operating on those under 25 as it is difficult to tell what someones balding pattern might be and where they might eventually end up. Im not saying any of this to worry you, but I just dont want anything bad happening to you. So is it possible for you to send in consultations with other clinics as well to get their perspective? A few I consider ethical off the top of my head are Bisanga, Feriduni, Konior, BLoxham/ Also do you have a family history of balding, tried any medications, are you able to take photos under the same lighting with the same hair length so you can assess if you are balding? That's smart not deciding on anything before June as well, as this stuff is permanent and shouldnt be rushed into.
  5. You're just 4 months in today right? Then the ugly duckling stage should just be finishing and this is when you hopefully start seeing some noticeable growth. The hairs at this stage should be pretty weak as the hair shaft is still developing and has to go through more cycles to get thicker and reach full maturity Although your hair is cut at different lengths from the photos you provided, a simple comparison between them reveals your hair in the 4 month photo looks more uniform, meaning i suspect growth has already begun (whereas your hair in the pre-op photo looks really bare). Realistically Month 4 is way too early for most to assess their growth (took me until month9-10 to hit full density with my first FUE) so hopefully in the next month or so you;ll see some improvements. Just a waiting game at this stage buddy As for hair fibres i used them after 4 weeks. There are other threads on it, and ask your doc https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/54981-hair-fibers-after-hair-transplant-surgeons-recomandations/ Keep us updated
  6. 1) they should know what DUPA is. FULL STOP 2) pretty sure they should have checked your donor with a magnifying loupe to check for signs of miniaturisation, and in doing so this would have probably revealed if you did have DUPA or what class baldness you might develop into etc 3) FUE is not scarless. Jesus. It actually creates more scarring, in terms of surface area, than FUT, but just appears scarless because its more spread out 4) In terms of whether medications would buffer the follicles in the safe zone if you develop DUPA ... DUPA has no safe zone; that's why it has the "U" in the acronym .. its UNPATTERNED (meaning its not predictable). It would come down to whether you are happy on the meds for the rest of your life and whether you want to risk surgery Here's a link: https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/55074-dr-charles-answers-whether-you-can-have-a-hair-transplant-with-dupa/ 5) I would have hoped going to a dermatologist or HT doctor would assess it, I'd consider asking for my money back from this derm. Send some photos to some of the more established doctors here for a consult, they might actually give you educated answers to your questions On a side note without photos we can only guess, but you might have DPA and not DUPA. The difference comes down to whether your donor appears stable or not.
  7. interesting case as most guys would focus more on the hairline. not a fan of the hairstyle but Feriduni really is the elite
  8. https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/55060-the-dreaded-halo-effect-any-genuinely-workable-solutions/?tab=comments#comment-519547 thats the other thread if you wanted to find it. when you click your profile you should be able to find all your topics/posts etc EVERYONE understands why you dont want to show your face lol. i just wish i had advice to give. theres another thread where we were talking about joe biden and then jeremy piven who seems to be dealing with the same issue https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/55028-joe-biden-hair-vs-balding/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-520274 adding density to your situation would be the obvious answer (so another HT), other than that im not sure
  9. Piven aint likeable (he can never play the lead and when he does the tv/movie always fails), but he has range.
  10. yeah melvin is right - he had more work done. the link is from 2011 though so might have been between that time.
  11. and with a simple link you managed to you answer another thread as well. https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/55091-duration-of-hair-transplant-over-time/?tab=comments#comment-520088
  12. Jesus that's insane - 11 repair cases to 60 cases in a decade. Its completely flipped I wrote on another thread i had a feeling this was happening, sad to see this is confirmed by your stats. Thanks for sharing ...
