  1. any update on this? i just had my consultation with dr gabel over the phone this past weekend and we're planning on going the same unshaven route. he was super friendly and informative and patient enough to wait for me to send photos back and forth so he could draw a hairline.
  2. awesome man. she's definitely on my shortlist of surgeons. i'm still waiting to see the final results from a couple of other patients before i pull the trigger, but yours definitely looks very promising
  3. bumping this. thanks for the replies. going to look into gabel and cooley.
  4. other doctors would disagree with 40 grafts/cm 2 being low density, and that anything more would choke the blood supply to other grafts
  5. does one's hair typically change color after a hair transplant?
  6. @lukeyb1687 do you have a graft breakdown or how many grafts per cm2? not sure if you covered that already
  7. right there with you brother, i'm an actor as well. how has life changed for you? i can only imagine you exuding nothing BUT confidence in auditions and everything. how did you go about normal life post-op?
  8. do they work? are the results as good as actually getting shaved? is it only donor or recipient or both? is this an actual thing that can be requested upon having a procedure? i feel like this would make recovery time way more manageable. anyone have any thoughts or experiences?
  9. my current bartending job allows us to wear hats or whatever the hell we really want to be honest, as long as we wear a tee or garment of clothing that says the name of the place. only drawback to this is that i'm also in drama school as well and the teacher doesn't allow us to wear hats in class for whatever reason. apparently professional actors don't wear hats idk. i'm sure if i let him know that i'll be getting a procedure done thats going to leave an unsightly scar for a few months i could get away with it
  10. i'm interested to hear people's stories. also, i feel like it would be helpful for ppl to know how to deal with security checkpoints when traveling for procedures post op. i think i read somewhere that a guy wore a bandana and they only made him take it off once or twice as opposed to wearing a hat.
  11. my younger brother unfortunately suffers from worse hairloss than i do and he's only 25. he's looking into smp too so i'm interested to see the results. if that works, that could be the true illusion of density haha at least for the crown.
  12. i might actually look into SMP on the crown. still not entirely sold on it yet tho. i guess we'll see. right now i'm not too worried about it. it's more of a nuisance to camouflage it, than a need to get it taken care of.
  13. this right here. consult with as many doctors as you can as well. and i don't believe that you're married to getting multiple surgeries down the road, unless you choose to do it. obviously it could get to a point where losing hair just isn't a big deal to you anymore, so don't go into it thinking that it's a requirement to get more surgeries unless it's of your own accord. i'm in a similar situation you are, although yours is a little better. i have intermediate miniaturization in the hairline, but also the crown. i'm aiming to do surgery this fall if possible, just trying to work out logistics and finances. here's my thread if you want to take a look
  14. ah disregard. i misread what you said initially. i thought you meant he put grafts into areas that weren't thinning, but i'm glad you clarified that. hasson was my first choice, but i think i'm sold on dr nadimi now
  15. i was told by a surgeon i consulted with that there is no such thing as preventative hair surgery. i'm interested in the final result
  16. i'm very interested in this no shave technique. why don't more surgeons employ this? seems it would make life way easier post-op
  17. i've never had an issue with fin. maybe some tiredness every now and then, but i also don't live the highest quality of life, and my job can be extremely stressful, so it could be that. but libido doesn't seem to be affected, and performance level is fine. also keep in mind, as i don't believe this was addressed, but the older you get, the less frequently you're going to want to have sex all the time. is it really fin? or have you just gotten older. not saying thats the case for everyone, but it's definitely a drug that affects everyone differently.
  18. can't fight father time, my friend. also measure your face into thirds. forelock to eyebrow, eyebrow to tip of nose, tip of nose to chin. if they're all in the same ball park of equality, then you might not have as big a forehead as you think
