  1. Yeah, I’m ecstatic! I’ve got TONS of baby hair coming in.....super fine but so many that my thin and bald spots are diminished. You’re gonna be impressed with Nadimi! The second month of waiting stinks though!
  2. What a difference 1 month makes.....at 2 months I didn’t want to post a pic because I looked slightly worse than pre op, to being so excited at month 3 I’m actually posting a touch early. (4/11 was surgery, today is 7/8) The front crown peak is getting thicker and the temple line has lowered. The split pic is today on left, pre op on right. I have to confess I was getting anxious as I could only tell a difference in the mirror in the last 10 days! I’m back to excited again!!!
  3. I was going to post month 2 photos surgery date 4/11 (today is 6/12) but there is absolutely no change in appearance from month 1, although I do have numerous tiny hairs just poking through. I’m excited for the time to pass so I can start seeing the results I will post an enlarged pic of some new growth. I am happy that I am seeing new growth this early in the process
  4. Hi Payam, I don’t mind disclosing as it’s been widely discussed on this forum. she is $9800 for the first 1500 then $5 per additional graft. She works with Konior and had several months waiting when I booked, so I would anticipate her prices going up as her results have been extraordinary, learned from one of the best and has plenty of demand.
  5. Thanks Bill. I think at 6 weeks post op (the pic I believe RameshK is referring) May be a bit premature to comment on density.....
  6. Hi 24! I look exactly the same as 1 month unfortunately, which is slightly worse than pre op! Probably payback for all my delayed gratification speeches to my kids through the years!!! I’ll post another comparison shot in a couple days at my 2 month mark, but no noticeable change apparent yet, though close up reveals new growth, sorta like 4 day whisker stubble. (Hopefully the resolution will show it). Moderate occasional itchiness at the recipient site, which I’m optimistically interpreting as growth. I am taking pre natal vitamins as a side effect is hair growth!!!!
  7. Here is a pic on the donor area taken immediately after a haircut a few days ago. On the forum guys have talked about punch size and scarring with other physicians. Dr Nadimi used a punch small enough I could barely see where they were extracted and there is zero scarring.
  8. Today is Four weeks exactly, I think I’ve shed just about all the grafts. They shed just about overnight, on day 19 or 20. I was thinking I might be the exception and not shed any because the grafts were actually growing. I think I’ve got some frontal shock loss but my wife tells me that isn’t the case. I’m anxious for the result! I tried to edit 2 pics side by side for comparison. The first is immediate post op and the second is today (4 weeks post op)
  9. @RecessionProof no, after the first concern of “bumps” and washing more, that is all I’m doing. I do live in Florida so the humidity may have an impact. According to her instructions I can start foam minoxidil in a couple days which I will do...
  10. i assume her work is “cleaner” because she is so meticulous, and that may be the reason most of the consults I have seen from other patient experiences are around the 1500 mark....from my layman research I believe the cleaner work is less traumatic so hopefully less shock loss. Interestingly, my grafts are growing at the same rate of the non disturbed hair, though it may appear I have shed some. Below are day 13 post procedure photos no one could tell after the 3rd or 4th day, other than my new haircut. People I did tell were shocked and amazed.
  11. Rest assured 24needmore you made the right choice in a physician! I too was a little anxious but there was no need. Flew in to ohare late the night prior, Arrived at office just before 6 am, completed paperwork for about 15 minutes then met with Dr Nadimi. She is professional, on task, detailed. She asked my opinion on hairline and my expectations but I deferred to her as she is the expert. Drew hairline referencing facial features (my hairloss wasn’t symmetrical) and calculated density over the square centimeter area she drew. She commented my hair loss was less than she anticipated from her notes on our FaceTime and emailed pics consult. Put me completely at ease with her confidence....not overly so but enough I knew I was in the right spot and in good hands. i believe she schedules 1500 as she is takes her time (this is my assumption based only on other Reports But possibly fudges alittle on the high side during the extraction for higher density) Shaved head and redrew her lines using a surgical pen both harvest and implant areas The initial lidocaine injections are a little painful (similar to a tattoo if you can relate). The subsequent aren’t bad, and I was impressed she could predict by skin tone when the lidocaine is wearing off. (She commented I metabolized it quickly so I got more than average) the harvest was 3 steps, right, back and left, with breaks in between. I was a touch too cognizant the first side, so they gave me additional Valium so I dozed off and on the rest of the day. the procedure, except the lidocaine injections is painless. really not much difference as a patient whether she is harvesting or implanting, other than how you sit. The rest of the day is face up, though your eyes are covered (patient safety in case someone drops something sharp) I was completely comfortable the entire procedure, and truthfully wasn’t aware of the time due to the Valium. You get breaks for restroom, and a jimmy johns sub you get to order for lunch. (I ordered ham and cheese instead of Italian as I didn’t want her to have to smell Italian dressing and salami the rest of the day....I wanted her to be as comfortable as possible too!!!) cleaned up, donor area is bandaged up, and was completely comfortable going to the hotel by myself in an Uber. My biggest concern was bumping my head as I’m tall) I think we finished up around 430 or 5 pm returned next day (Friday) to get cleaned, returned the following day (Saturday)as well, though no cleaning was really required. Looked good enough I went downtown for a malinarttis pizza, no one gave me a second glance. I couldn’t even tell I just had a procedure. Had a follow up on Monday AM before catching my flight. Pain if any post surgery on a scale of 1 to 10 was at worst a 1, mostly a zero. After returning home, I reached out to her as I noticed some small bumps and was concerned about folliculitis. (It was Thursday so I knew she had a procedure,) but I almost immediately received a call from her office, relaying her message that it appeared to be flaking only and to wash a little more (she was right, I was hesitant to wash) and the bumps cleared up immediately just allowing more soapy water to flow over the receipiant area. (The first week you wash the donor area gently then tilt your head and body forward allowing the soapy water to wash forward). She then followed up with a call later that day personally. my experience with her procedure wise was off the charts. I work just outside the medical field and work with docs almost daily. She is in a different league compared to the “average” it is a long term result but I’m super confident my result will be outstanding. I plan on posting monthly pics.....I think most people just go back to the daily life, but my experience with her was so good I’m going to try to commit 12 monthly pic updates.
  12. Age 53, started taking finasteride and topical minoxidil when I made the decision for surgery. Dr Nadimi was about 6 months out for a specific date so was on therapy for 6 months prior to surgery. Appeared to stabilize or at least slow down the hair loss, though my hair loss wasn’t overly significant or super fast.
  13. 1680 in total. I’m ecstatic. I know it’s a long term result but her skill, confidence and team were incredible.
