  1. I had mine done at Asmed in March. So far at 7 months I’m happy though I’m definitely hoping for some improvement the next 5 months. Just realize that everybody’s body is different and will react differently to a hair transplant. Even the best doctors have bad transplants. It also come down to cost. If you have a lot of money, then there is no reason to go to a place like ASMED but rather a more high end surgeon that will do most the surgery himself or at least in the room with the technicians for most of it. But ASMED was less than half than what I would have paid for a top doctor in the US which made it much easier for me to commit You have to have realistic expectations and not try to get too aggressive. Doing a transplant without committing to taking finasteride for most your life is also a mistake If you can’t commit to the drug, then I wouldn’t commit to a transplant
  2. I think the first problem here is how aggressive they allowed you to go on lowering the hairline. Very difficult to lower a hairline that much and look natural. They set you up for failure.
  3. I recommend finding the surgeon with the absolute longest wait list as you don't need to have another surgery anytime soon.
  4. Seems good to me so far! Hopefully things keep progressing the next few months for you.
  5. I didn't mean to sound too negative in my post, we are both still far too early to know our results. I am mostly happy with mine at the five month mark, but still need LOTS of improvement the next five to seven months for it to be a success. I think yours will be a success. As we know, hair transplant pictures can be very deceiving based on lighting, angles, hair style, etc. Putting the pictures in harsh conditions is the best to not camouflage the results like some do.
  6. Kraistoff- How do you think it compares to where you were at for 5 months? Hopefully not the case but it seems to have the signs of the new "signature" look that most recent ASMED hairlines have where it is patchy in at least one of the areas behind the new hairline. Mine appears to be the same (Templerunner and I had the surgery on the same day). Hopefully it's just a 5 month thing for us.
  7. Here are my 4.5 month pictures. I'm still not good at taking these pictures but I don't enjoy it so no re-dos. Much improvement from 3.5 month, but still FAR from where I want to be. It's pretty obvious in the pictures which is the transplanted hair. As long as it keeps progressing each of the next six months I think I will be happy in the end. I'll get a haircut before my next set of pictures which hopefully will contrast the transplanted hair better.
  8. Not to derail your thread but i am curious what type of work do you do that allows a 4 month vacation? Here in the US unless you are a school teacher, taking anything beyond two weeks is pretty unheard of. I've been out of college for 10 years and the longest vacation I have ever taken is 5 work days. I only took four days when I went to Instanbul for hair transplant (though i can work from home which helps).
  9. Wow that looks amazing for 4 months!! I think you are on pace for a very good result I will update mine in the next few days. Mine is not nearly as good as yours yet but it’s gotten MUCh better the last couple weeks so I’m excited.
  10. You need to wait a few YEARS years before you have another surgery. Just because a doctor says they will perform a surgery that will make you look better now doesn't mean they care what you will look like in 10 years. It is a business and they want your money.
  11. Like I've said multiple times before, it is a waste of time trying to put any sense into him. If I recall, he doesn't take finasteride, minoxidil, or any supplements. He began searching for new surgeons after only about 5 months. He is under 30, had two transplants, and wants a third before he is 30.
  12. Correct, the minimum dosage it comes in is 1mg. You should just take half a pill every day. I'm no doctor but it just seems to make way more sense.
  13. What is up with this notion of people switching to every other day on finasteride? It only has a half life of 8 hours! That means that every other day you will not have it in your system, including a good portion of the day you took it. Why would you consider this? Just reduce to 0.5mg daily instead of 1mg every other day.
