  1. Yes exactly, by day 6-7. I’m asking because by that time I began to shower then after while the crusts were moist/swollen I would massage with more force to remove the crusts and they indeed start coming off. I’m wondering if by massaging too hard by day 6-7 there is still the possibility of damaging grafts (there was no blood or dislodged grafts). Thanks
  2. Dr Bloxham within the first 6-7 days is It still possible to damage grafts permanently say by more forceful massage in the shower even if there is no bleeding?
  3. Very nice. How many grafts went into the temple points? Why do the immediate post op photos don’t show any grafts into the temple points?
  4. Sorry to hear you began losing your hair so early. I can totally relate though, I began losing my hair around 15-16 also. So know that you’re not alone. Most reputable doctors will not perform surgery at your age simply because it’s difficult to predict how your hair loss will progress. What you need to do is try to maintain your hair with treatments such as finasteride and nizoral shampoo. I’ve seen some doctors recommend surgery after the minimum age of 25 or so. I also recommend waiting it out to see if/how your hair progresses while on fin. I know this isn’t something you wanted to hear but know that this advice is for your own good. Hows your scalp health? I know for me when I was losing hair at that young age my scalp was horribly unhealthy. I had uncontrolled seborrheic dermatitis and it accelerated my hair loss imo. So if your scalp is unhealthy also try to address that to give the meds the best chance to work. in regards to your stress and mental health. Please seek a qualified therapist/psychologist. I dealt with/still deal with the same and it can truly help you. The sooner you start the better. If you’re in college they usually have therapist on site that provide services. Good luck and feel free to ask any questions!
  5. Couldn’t agree more. It’s nice to have doctors actually come and take part in some of the discussions. Just because they don’t agree with your opinion does not mean one should disrespectfully attack them Great response by @Dr. Patrick Mwamba
  6. I’m in line with doctor bloxham on this one. Sounds hormone related, and while you’ve been on fin for two months, your body is still trying to find “homeostasis” and as a result you’re experiencing acne. Follow up with the doc that prescribed it just in case and maybe a derm that’s well versed in hair loss that has lots of experience with fin. is ur skin more oily since taking fin? When I get acne breakouts what works best for me is a leave on salicylic acid lotion once a day (at least 1% concentration). Just my experience but u may want to give it a shot
  7. If under 40 I would seriously consider treatment (mainly fin) before going with a transplant. It’s important to stabilize your loss so you’re not chasing it with transplants. Looks like you have good donor and hair characteristics with relatively minor loss (nw 3). There’s lots of options. First I’d decide fut or fue. Then go from there. Plenty of good docs in North America and Europe. Find patient posted results that have similar loss and hair as u and with a hairline that you would like as your end result. IMO, each doc has their own philosophy regarding hairlines and some go a bit more aggressive in their designs than others. Good luck
  8. @KO hi, did lupanzula review why there may have been less than optimal growth? I remember you mentioned you had a scalp condition like dermatitis and I’m wondering what he said regarding that
  9. Dr. B typically, when you review family hair loss history with a male patient, how detailed does it get? Father, grandfathers, brothers? I’m asking because I have a mixed bag. Thanks in advance
  10. #1: please brush up on your english or use a better translation site #2: fut is not a “histhorical” method. It has its place and still produces great results and for some patients is the more logical approach #3: please describe how your “#iceplasma fue” is different from other fue surgery? What tool do u use to extract grafts (manual punch, cit, motorized, waw, Harris safe, dull, trumpet, hybrid)? How do u place grafts (forceps, implanters)? Storage solution? We want to know what makes your fue so special that you had to give it a certain name?
  11. Good hair progress But when r u gonna trim ur pinky nail? What is it used for?
  12. Interesting. Thanks for the response. does this also mean inflammation driven scalp disorders such as Seborrheic dermatitis can contribute to hair loss? can one take any type of whey protein concentrate/isolate since that is the main ingredient that has benefits of antioxidant activity?
  13. Great post. after the “spurt” of growth at 3-5 months is there another or several more of these “spurts” where new hairs sprout thru the scalp? If so, when does this typically occur?
  14. Dr B are uva rays as harmful as uvb for grafts?
  15. I think you’ll be fine then. I’d just their judgement. For extra precaution maybe wear a hat if you please
  16. What did ur doctor say? I’ve heard differing opinions on this
  17. If you really want to know you should review the data and statistics for each from the fda studies.
  18. Which exact treatments is the patient on? I just want to know what "maximal medical management" includes
  19. @Parsa Mohebi, MD 2339 grafts went into the crown but there is no crown picture for the post op? Why is there no overhead shot either?
  20. What exactly does help hair whey protein do to address hair loss? From reading the ingredients it’s whey protein concentrate mixed with some vitamins.
  21. What device do u use for fue extraction (manual, waw, harris safe, etc). Do u have pics immediately post op including the donor and recipient placement?
