  1. @Lennney Steady improvement is what I see in each set of your pictures.
  2. @Barberman1986 Great long term results . Mind sharing some more after pics from top and also how many grafts in each transplant .
  3. Just because it has a lot of promising results online .If anything comes after finasteride and minoxidyl , then prp it is . Secondly my type of hair loss ( diffuse thinning all over scalp ) seems a perfect case for prp treatment . My doc Dr Bhatti seems to me as a person who works with military precision . From very beginning He has recommended only what has sure shot result . Nothing more nothing less . Maybe that is the reason he doesn't recommend prp( which works only In 50%-60% of cases ) However me personally want to give my first HT my best shot . This is a long term procedure . Want to have HT just once ( or twice if unfortunate ) and then move on .
  4. I am taking prp with a cell and will be taking 2nd session today after 1.5 month from 1st session from Dr Bhatti . Thanks for the replies @Lennney @HLPToronto @Melvin-Moderator and others. I am not thinking much of results now as I think it is futile . Just doing all efforts and taking pics once a month . Time and Next 6 months will till rest of the story.
  5. Thanks . Waiting for that day @Bill - Seemiller @Melvin-Moderator @Lennney Waiting for your comments guys
  6. Thanks for the advice . However Dr Bhatti suggests that minoxidil for 6 months post op is sufficient.I will be using for 7 months . the only problem with it is that the wetness look already thin hair , balding .
  7. 6.5 month update - Just four days left for six and a half month to complete. So will count this as the six and a half month update Following the finax . minoxidil, nizoral once a week , biotin , folli hair supplement routine But will finally stop the minoxidil at 7 month mark. Or just use it alternate days at night so that I can wash it next morning Maybe can return to normal shampoo ( after HT was using baby shampoo ) Will consult Dr Bhatti on the above two things Have a second PRP session scheduled with Dr Bhatti on 4th september. So how is my progress guys.
  8. 5 month 1 week update - So visited Dr Bhatti at the 5 month mark. Also took a PRP+A cell treatment. Dr Bhatti said that the growth is normal at 5 month mark. All is OK as per him. Further he does not recommend PRP and in his experience is not of much use. But he still offers the same if patients persists. Still not decided whether I should take PRP or not. If I do go ahead I think I should take it at day 30 and day 90 from my first prp and then wait for result . What do you guys suggest . should I go for it ? If yes then at what duration ? As far as the results are concerned . All looks good the day I shampoo like seen in pics below. But the moment I apply 1 ml minoxidyl or just the next day of shampoo ( I shampoo alternate day ) the illusion of a full head of hair is gone. This was the case before HT too. Still waiting for the day when I would be able to go a day without shampoo or carry off a little minoxidyl. My current meds are-( from the day of my HT ) 1 biotin 5 mg - once a day 2 finasteride 1mg - once a day 3 minoxidyl 5 - once a day 4 nizoral 2% shampoo - once a week 5 J & J baby shampoo - alternate day RO water for hair washing as water in my city is abnormally hard.
  9. So 4.5 month result is below - Thinking of visiting Dr Bhatti once to have his opinion Also maybe thinking of getting a PRP. Although Dr Bhatti says it is of not much use. Rest patiently waiting and wishing for the best.
  10. 4th Month - 2nd set of pics Actually I was not very satisfied with the pics posted before . So for providing a clear picture I am posting a 2nd set of pics. Have also combed my hair becuase without combing now the recipient area sort of gets hidden. All I can say at this point is that keeping my fingers crossed for next 1 month and 21 days.
  11. That result at 3 months seems awesome and your HT surely looks like will score a homerun. You definitely seem to be a fast grower
  12. @HLPTorontohoping for the best @Lennney Thanks lennney for the thread. All i can say is that I am eagerly waiting. Regarding numbness , it is still there in recipient area only , It is felt on touching only and is mild
