  1. W/o the use of Fin can we expect the transplanted hairs to be relatively permanent? I understand that if a patient undergoes chemo or they have other health issues that arise this could influence the life of the hair follicles. I was just curious what you all have to say about this. I've been told different things by different people. Thanks.
  2. Thanks, paddyirishman! That gave me a nice boost in confidence that I made the right decision.
  3. From what you're saying I guess it's a matter of making sure it is done correctly. I did do quite a bit of research before making any decisions, had 2 separate consults w/ 2 different surgeons and Dr. Panine seemed the best fit. I looked through his before and after photos and they looked amazing. So for you personally would you say that if given the opportunity to go back in time you would do it all over again?
  4. I'm scheduled w/ Dr. Panine next month for a 2500 FUE procedure. I'm 42 and have been ever so slooowly thinning/balding since my late 20s/ early 30s. It really became noticeable in my mid 30s when I could no longer style my hair the way I was used to w/o scalp showing. Now I guess I'm around a Norwood 4 or 5. Just noticed how bad the crown is getting in a photo that was taken of me from behind. Yikes! Anyhow, my plan is to rebuild the hairline and leave the crown alone for a possible future procedure if I choose to go that route. I'm being pretty reasonable about this. I just want to be able to look in the mirror and have a decent age appropriate hair line again. The crown doesn't really bother me all that much to be honest. I have been taking Rogaine for about 3 years which seems to have slowed things down but it's really difficult to tell to be sure. I have explored the option of Propecia but I really don't think I want to go that route. I also use Caboki fibers which does a great job of filling in the thinning areas of my hair. I use it everyday and have gotten quite accustomed to the process. I'm pretty excited about having this procedure done but would like to hear others' opinions who have already had it done. Was it worth it? Would you do it again if you could go back? Thanks!
