  1. Thanks for guiding me to the right thread @Shifty By first post, I meant this one.
  2. Thanks for the update. Your hair looks great. Could you please update your regimen on the main post so that it's easier to find?
  3. Thanks for sharing your experience OP. This gives me some hope I have similar questions like the person above. Are there any scars from the extraction on your forehead? Any pitting? If people look normally can they see any signs of scars? Would it be possible for you to share some closeups of the forehead region where repair was done.
  4. I took fin for 2 years and then switched to Dut approximately 2.5 years ago. I didn't notice any dramatic improvements with Dut. If anything, I may have lost some ground even on Dutasteride. Given my experience, I am wondering if Dut is really worth taking? Should I switch back to finasteride? And will I lose significant ground if I make the switch?
  5. Fin (and later Dutasteride) as well as minox didn't really slow down the progress of hairloss for me. Right now I am taking Dutasteride daily and applying topical minox daily. I am thinking of going on a month long or 2 month long break from the meds and then switch back to fin from dutasteride after the break. What are risks associated with such breaks? Will I lose hair irreversibly? I don't know if it's really a thing but my thought is that I need to flush my system of all the medicines and start again. Maybe a stupid idea but worth trying if risks are low?
  6. I had a similar experience which has left me depressed and locked in my home for years. Once I can afford a repair I'll post pictures of my terrible hairline and crown work too. As a young guy it can be tempting to believe surgeons because you are so desperate to overcome baldness. But there are a lot of unethical surgeons out there who'll butcher you for money. Better to do your research and go to a honest surgeon.
  7. I switched to Dutasteride more than 2 years ago. No improvements on that either. The only thing that was made any improvement to my hair was dermarolling. But I got lazy and stopped it and lost all my gains.
  8. There can be several reasons for this. You could be undergoing the shedding phase and are due for regrowth in sometime. Or you could be heading towards your initial hairloss stage. Not everyone respons to fin and minox in the same way. I had the same experience initially. I regrew massive amounts of hair but my body "probably" adjusted to the meds and I quickly went down the spiral of massive hairloss and never quite recovered.
  9. Recently came across this article in Nature journal: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-01568-2 It talks about a major breakthrough in regenerative medicine. While current hairtransplants can already produce some remarkable results if done right, I am wondering how much of an impact regenerative medicine could have on people without strong donor regions. What do you guys think?
  10. I think I just noticed Dr. Pradeep Sethi from Eugenix sitting amongst the audience at timestamp 11:05 (https://youtu.be/XASvPhbsRO4?t=665) Maybe if this technique is realistic and works well in practice it would be great to see other clinics adopting it.
  11. Having undergone a botched transplant myself, I truly appreciate ethical surgeons like you. Your work including that of many other ethical surgeons on this forum restores my faith in the medical fraternity. I am truly hoping that I can manage to gather enough funds within the next few years so that I can get repair work done at your clinic.
  12. @LMC If you are still around on the forum, kindly share your updated pics.
  13. I have seen several posts on various MPB and Hairloss forums where the users claimed that supplementation with Vitamin D, Biotin, Zinc, Magnesium etc. dramatically boosted their hair growth. Since our physiology determines our overall health, it's not too far-fetched to assume that supplements can have impact on hair quality. I was wondering if anyone else here has had any hair quality improvements and even hair growth with supplements?
  14. Good points @BeHappy I was just shocked how Dr. Bhatti managed to slip between the cracks for so long despite such bad results. The threads go back to 2018. I am glad that the forum protects the interests of the members though. Everyone was very supportive to me on my thread.
  15. So far everything looks really clean and well done. If your final results turn out well, I might seriously start considering Eugenix for my repair.
