  1. he said shock loss of native hair when transplanted hair is placed in close proximity is not unexpected and should grow back along with the new hair placed there
  2. Hey no need to worry, literally just asked my doc on same issue.........transplants placed in between existing hairs (in my case older transplants) - he said shock loss of native hair when transplanted hair is placed in close proximity is not unexpected. Good news is that the hairs arent gone they're just taking a break after getting knocked around a little i.e. your hair transplant. They'll be back in a couple of months. Looks to me like some toppik could cover your thinning up top very easily
  3. Had 2nd pass surgery on area previously transplanted to add density.. Previously transplanted hairs were shaved down and new hair planted beside them. 1 month post op - all newly transplanted hairs have fallen out. The old transplants continued to grow and are now about an inch. However one area of about the size of a penny has seemed to have lost BOTH the new & old transplants through shock loss. Is this normal/OK??? For some reason I kind of thought the previously transplanted hairs might be immune to shock loss given they are DHT resistant and 'strong'
  4. Thanks - felt that was the case but great to get it confirmed. Feel this board and others allows a forum where alot of folks can over-think their post op period a little too much........what shampoo, what supplements, conditioner, no conditioner When real story is that 72 hours post op - each graft transplanted either 'made it' and is happily alive in your scalp or didnt and you'll find out in 12 months
  5. Seems to be that fairly soon after a hair transplant is done perhaps 10 days perhaps sooner even 3 days? - that the results you can expect 6 months / 8 months / 12 months down the line are now already 'baked in the cake' - in that the transplanted follicles have survived being out of the body for the period of the operation but once placed back in your body they were able to re-connect to blood supply in the scalp (or not) and they've now gone into a resting phase. I see lots of folks 10 days post op taking supplements, doing this or that thinking that it will help have a better result. When in actual fact the result your gonna get is likely set in stone fairly quickly after your out of the operating room i.e. the hair follicles have been reconnected to the blood supply or they havent and all the MSM / biotin in the world isn't going to change that. Sound fairly accurate?
  6. 9 Months out from an FUT procedure with on-site here recommended and top-rated surgeon. I will be returning to the clinic in the coming weeks but wanted to get a sense of what the community believes from previous cases to be a fair and just refund/compensation. Growth has been OK from the procedure and I'm still being patient around potential maturing and thickening to happen in areas I currently consider weak. Let's see what happens there however my confidence in the whole process has been undercut by what is clearly now mistakes made during my procedure. The clinic I went to & I choose for these reasons - speaks proudly & openly on websites/youtube about the use of microscopes to separate grafts into 1's, 2's, 3's and how they create a natural feathered look - moving from singles in the hairline to multi-hair grafts further back. My issue............in the frontline of grafts placed in my new hairline the clinic has placed what I count to be at least double-digit number of 2's and 3's. This is has created what I consider and I think anyone would consider being an unnatural pluggy look. From the previous examination of photos, there will be no hair growing in front of these grafts ironically the recipient sites where the 2's & 3's were placed were actually the very sites made to give a broken up uneven natural look to the hairline. Secondly considering now that its clear that the clinic did not or the technicians did not correctly categorize grafts I can only presume that there was a misallocation of the correct grafts into wrong areas of the recipient area? Thoughts anyone? The result - graft survival may have compromised as they were placed in slits too small or too large? Thoughts on this theory? They went into the wrong areas not just in my hairline but further back to NOT create a feathered look and may explain why further back in the transplanted area currently looks thin? In returning to the clinic what would the community believe to be the 'right' response? My view is that I didn't receive the service I expected, demonstrable mistakes were made and I would like a full refund so I can go to another clinic to repair this.
