  1. Thanks for the photos and write-up! You chose a great doc, I look forward to seeing your results!
  2. No one on this forum should feel obligated to answer any of your questions when all you’re doing is going around trashing other people’s results.
  3. Dr. Arocha, I am curious about PRP and how it is best utilized. I’m not exactly sure how to best phrase the question so I’ll try a couple of different ways and see if any make sense. Is PRP a time sensitive therapy in that it works best for patient’s in early stages of balding? Can PRP “wake up” follicles that have been inactive for long periods of time? Personally, I feel like my hair has stabilized with Propecia over the past two years and wonder when an optimal time to consider a PRP treatment might be. Could it be that the longer I wait, the chances I will see a noticeable imp
  4. 5 months post-op is usually when you have to start telling guys to be patient because it’s still early in the process…something tells me you don’t require any of this reassurance, haha! Happy to see a guy get rewarded for his patience by waiting until the right opportunity with the right clinic was found!
  5. Would love to see how the final results turned out if you get a chance.
  6. Here is a repair case where Dr. Cooley used electrolysis: https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/51305-fut-repair-with-dr-cooley/
  7. I am no authority on the subject, but I have seen commercials for a class action lawsuit regarding Just for Men for some kind of adverse reactions to phenylenediamine. Is this a substantial risk for the average user? Is this just a case of lawyers trying to make some money? I have no clue. Have you used the product in the past?
  8. Well I hope they help. It's a sort of art that I have yet to master myself. But I have even used a combination of the two before. Dermmatch is makeup for the scalp (some guys can work magic with it, but I find it hard to pull off, possibly because I couldn't really get an identical shading), and the Hairatin seems to get the scalp and hold on to the hair a bit. Let us know how it works for you.
  9. Have you tried Hairatin? It's a bit pricier, but I believe it is a better product. Regardless of which you use it's tough to pull off on the hairline.
  10. I would suggest sticking with what has been working for you for the past decade. Quartering a pill is worth the minor inconvenience rather than going through a potential backslide in your hair retention.
  11. Hell man, I thought you were from like Uzbekistan or somewhere you needed a travel visa or something lol. You're in NY, why not go get a consultation with Dr. Bernstein. From what I've heard the guy doesn't have an ounce of bullshit in him. Perhaps more importantly, I checked out the link. The 13th photo looked really familiar to me, and I remembered seeing it on Realself's website. Check it out. https://www.realself.com/photos/fue-hair-transplant?tags=9953#media-photo-1622205-1494008-1 Apparently it was done by someone by the name of Dr. Karadeniz... Tell me that's not the s
  12. You’re the older brother, you have special license to pull rank on him. Especially if your paying for his trip/surgery. I don’t think you can let him go through a sketchy elective surgery with a clean conscience. You’ll hate yourself if it disfigures him for life. Besides, he owes it to himself to put in the time and do his own research. I did a cursory search on Smile. I couldn’t find much. As far as I could tell they’ve been open for about a year. I couldn’t find any actual before after photos. Not even on their website or facebook. I didn't spend a lot of time looking, maybe I miss
  13. I think it’s great that you’re looking out for your younger brother. Actually, I’m about your age and have brothers around your brothers age as well (hair loss runs in our family too😊). I bet that we’re also similar in that the last thing that we would is for one to be harmed by imitating decisions that we make ourselves. Whether we like it or not, we have a lot of influence on their behavior. What about you? Do you feel good about going through a hair transplant, or are you reconsidering? I don't want you to be a lab rat for your brother, but at the very least, can’t he wait to see
  14. You're right, it is very early in the process. Having said that, I think you put your trust in the right guy because Dr. Panine does great work, and in a few months your results should be evidence of that!
