  1. FUT does not have the ugly duckling problem of FUE. A lot depends on the length of your. 2 weeks out of the limelight is pretty much all you need, unless you buzz your head. It is really more noticeable to you than other people. Your hair is not important to them.
  2. FUT is easy unless you wear your hair short. Took 2 weeks off and nobody noticed. I was retired when I then had FUT so that was not a problem.
  3. There is no medical need for a man to get a transplant. Thank you for the compliment on my education Get your ducks in a row before you try to throw out your insults. Reread your post.
  4. Your transplant is much more important to you than to anyone else. 50% of the population could care less if you even have a head. Women will only notice if they are interested in you, otherwise you are invisible. One thing to understand is that it is not about you, it is about them. Say nothing about getting a transplant. the men won't care at all unless they want to get one also. The women will file it in their memory banks forever, and you will always be the guy who got the transplant. A woman can get a boob job and it is accepted, even though the girls will still talk about her behind her back. DON'T TELL ANYBODY ANYTHING.
  5. I have had both FUT and FUE. I thought FUT was much easier. Since I don't wear short hair it is no problem hiding the FUT scar. Interestingly when I had FUE and they shaved my donor area, I appeared to have 2 FUT scars, and I know darn well there should only be one, and the FUT doctor only removed staples from one incision. This is a mystery.
  6. I retired in 2005 from one job and went to a retirement party about a year after my first transplant in 2011, and One guy asked why I was the only one who was looking younger than when I retired. I just laughed and drank another beer.
  7. Medina that is much less than I paid for 2300, and I consider that I got a good price with good results. About 15 months post op.
  8. I saw that on my stepson, but the hair grew back. I can't remember the name of it.
  9. Does Artificial Intelligence have a future in Hair Transplants? I could see a robot placing grafts in a fraction of the time a surgeon would take, and with better precision. https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/does-ai-have-a-place-in-medicine/
  10. There are way too many variables for anyone to give you a very concrete answer, especially since you are very far away from knowing the results of your first transplant. There are many here who can give you good advice, but much more data will be needed. You may want to have your first transplant, wait a year, and come back with your questions including pictures. Be sure to express your concerns with your surgeon.
  11. Sorry about that I was talking about something closer to the end result. At 6 months you should at least see the promise of what is to come.
  12. I am also 72. I see that you have not gone gray. Are you coloring your hair. Other than gray around the ears my hair has stayed brown. I too have a balding spot on the crown, but enough is enough. I only had 2 procedures one FUT and one FUE in 2011 and 2018 respectively. I was in Walmart yesterday and I saw myself in a mirror and I was amazed at how thick my hair looked. I don't use any fibers. I probably have much more donor hair, but I am done with transplants. Styling my hair has become a much bigger issue now that I have hair. Young guys should realize that they will care about how they look as they grow older.
  13. Why do they use temporary dye, and if is basically a tattoo why not use a tattoo artist who may be more skilled than a doctor. I think I just answered my own question since SMP uses different size needles than Tattoo. I will come back to my other question as to why they use temporary dye.
  14. The one question I should have asked was whether you wear your hair long or short? Most on here default to short hair, while I think long hair.
  15. Depending on the length of your hair it could take months before the donor area looks normal.
  16. I am a little surprised nobody has responded to your post.I like your plan of washing your hair. I also let my hair air dry, and my hair is longer than yours. I continued doing that for 2-3 months, but others will tell you that you only need a week or so. I err on the side of caution. I can't say anything about the medications because I don't use them. As far as shampoo goes I use Biotin Collagen Shampoo and Conditioner that I buy at Walmart, and I like it. I am 14 months post transplant and I experienced no shedding, but that is not the norm.
  17. I can't relate to losing hair at 27 because I really didn't notice my hair loss until my 40s. Nobody at 27 wants to look old. Hair transplants at any age surely improve your self confidence, but I believe it would have a higher impact at 27. Basically it improves the dating game especially for a young man.
  18. I would avoid the mesh because it lets in sunlight.
  19. I live in Florida so the UV blocker worked the best for me.
  20. This forum is an excellent source of information. Growing old is a bitch, and a bald head is a big part of that. I say anything you can do to improve your looks should be done. I am 14 months post my last transplant, and I am happy with the results.
  21. As an Official Old Man at 72, it is a thin line we walk. Trying to look too young is a deadly sin. We have all seen people with jet Black hair, and it just does not look natural. Looking like something that could naturally be is VERY important. If I walked around with a young guys haircut it would look foolish - the same thing with clothes.
