  1. And whats your transection rate for beard hair, please??
  2. Okay, thats good to know. Do you happen to know the transection rate for chest hairs at your clinic?? I had a nice chat with Dr. Arika at your Eugenix yesterday btw and I'm considering using your clinic
  3. Okay, thats very strange then because I was consulted by someone named Abhinay Singh who works for Eugenics and who told me they dont chest hairs at all. His email is abhinay@eugenix.in. His exact words were "Beard hair has a good success rate but not chest. Would avoid using them". Is he perhaps at a different location in India then the one you work at??
  4. Just a heads up here, Eugenix only does beard hair, they dont chest hairs, leg hairs....etc
  5. Thread bookmarked. Has Eugenix been an approved clinic by this forum yet??
  6. A cure will be discovered by accident and there will be very little prior announcement. It will simply arrive some day. Minoxidil was discovered by accident as well. It was originally designed as a new drug for hypertension. When they conducted their clinical trial they found it didnt do much for hypertension, but to everyone's surprise people were reporting hair growth. Penicillin was also discovered by accident. Sir Fleming dropped a bit of bread mold into his petri dish, it in turn inhibited the growth of bacteria and the rest is history
  7. I was 21 years old and in living in a college dorm when it happened. I remember just getting out of the shower and seeing all these thin, bald lines on my scalp. Thats when I knew the process had started
  8. Here is my advice to you: First, post a picture of your abdomen to see how many grafts you have to donate (or tell us approximately how many you have). Then if the transection rate is about 1/4 I would try to make a deal with your doctor for some type of discount. As far as scarring is concerned, laser treatment for scars can do wonders, so I wouldnt worry about that. If you do get crazy scaring just get some laser therapy afterwards: https://www.google.ca/search?q=laser+treatment+scars&lr=&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjdzufLiI7qAhVykuAKHSu_AnwQ_AUoAXoECA8QAw&biw=1280&bih=545
  9. Whats the transection rate for chest and abdominal hairs?? NVM I found it: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3764758/
  10. Rumor has it his clinic either has (or slowly is) turning into a hair mill
  11. Look how far down the neck he went. Almost to the adam's apple
  12. At 0:30 seconds you can see how far down the neck he went. Patient seemed very happy too btw
  13. I think some of you guys are giving bad information by the way. Dr. Umar's beard hair transplants are riddled with hair taken from the neck area. Just have a look on youtube
  14. I'm gonna grow it out long and perhaps colour it with that Just for Men stuff so you guys can see better
  15. How can it be just 500 when the average man has 30,000 beard hairs?? Or did you mean 5,000?? https://www.google.ca/search?as_q=how+many+beard+hairs+average+man%3F&as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&as_nlo=&as_nhi=&lr=&cr=&as_qdr=all&as_sitesearch=&as_occt=any&safe=images&as_filetype=&tbs=
  16. Let me first apologize for the shitty picture quality, but its the best I could do on my smartphone. Also I'm not asking for an exact number, just a rough estimate. The hairs are hard to see though, I have partial grey hair Where I drew the arrow is how far the beard hairs go down to my neck. The 3rd pic is my chin and just below it
  17. I heard a bad batch of holding solution can cause a HT to fail as well
  18. Does a motorized punch give a higher transection rate??
  19. So I'm scheduled to have a 3,500 FUE session done. Why is it some doctors are able to do a large FUE session like that, while others can only do 2,000 FUE maximum?? Does it come down to individual technique and skill, or is it something else??
  20. Just got email back from my clinic, they said for a 3,000 FUE I will spend about 30 to 45 minutes on my stomach, and 8 hours in a sitting position. Thats really good news, I can easily do 45 minutes on my stomach 🙂 Not 8 hours though, that would be too much. I'll probably bring my own lunch too
  21. Sitting position is even better. I'm gonna find out if my surgeon can offer that. If not, I might go somewhere else
  22. I'm currently on Fodmap diet, but that only controls it. It doesnt cure. There are no medications you can take to cure it either, you can only take drugs that lessen the symptoms. Thanks for posting about 45 degree angle. I'm gonna ask my surgeon about that. I'm assuming you were lying face down, right??
  23. I'm scheduled for a 3,000 graft FUE. I also have irritable bowel syndrome and I'm not always comfortable lying on my stomach for long periods of time. IBS causes stomach cramps, bloating.....etc in case you didnt know. Is this going to be a problem, or is it doable??
