  1. I agree - longer term based on the research and the consensus view from the majority of HT surgeons I've seen (with one or two notable exceptions) - pursuing the maximum number of FUT procedures and then following that with FUE does maximize total lifetime doner. The number I've seen mentioned in very broad terms as rule of thumb is an incremental 2,000 grafts over an 'FUE only' patient. On your first FUE post-FUT'ing out........you could even consider putting some grafts into the linear scar.........300 - 400 say...........AND still end up 'ahead' in terms of lifetime doner. In your
  2. Ok no fin and 27 years old...........I'm afraid its very unlikely your hairloss has stopped...........your hair loss journey is only starting................Dr.Bloxham was right to be conservative and see if 2,000 grafts might give you the coverage that might make you happy. It still might I can see the hair are immature and wire-y.......i think leave it as I said till 15 months and revist. If you were on Fin and good responder I would have said go for it in terms of 3-4k grafts (recent Japanese long term studies of Fin have demonstrated good efficacy over the long term in terms of haltin
  3. The reality is Bloxham from what I've seen has a conservative approach..........he is working on the basis that every patient ends up a NW5-6......and then asks what would be required to provide coverage for this. Using this he wont go low or too dense unless he's super confident that furture hairloss is probably unlikely. Its conservative and it does ensure nobody is left in a bad place up the road. There is merit in his approach and its admirable..........but for a certain cohort, based on their high expectations, it practically guarantees your back in the chair 18 months later. Looking at t
  4. You could argue that two strips of 3000 each would have been possible on this patient........with virgin doner above and below the strip available for FUE after that, who knows possibly another 2000 by FUE..........never would have had to gone to body/beard hair as an option in that scenario.......and then BHT would have been break in case of emergencies type thing. HOWEVER - maybe patient always wants the tight hairstyle look - from photos it doesn’t appear so. Regardless this is a elite elite level result that the doctor and patient should be very happy with.......Uber natural you’
  5. I dont see anyone within 500 miles of NYC putting out better or more refined FUE work than Dr.Carlos Wesley with plenty of patient case studies over many years on this site and others backing him up.......he seems to offer or be expert in no shave FUE also which is interesting. He's also in the class of HT doctor who genuinely seems to be trying to push the profession forward with his work around scarless surgery where the FU graft is taken from below the skin via one mini-FUT like incision in the scalp. V interesting. After that Dr.True & Dorin..........then Dr.Bloxham who is more of
  6. (1) Corn row hair placement in recipient = wrong methodology (2) FUE harvesting from a concentrated patch from safe zone = wrong methodology Put another way if you walked into Dr.Konior displaying those two characteristics, corn row placement & concentrated FUE pattern, you would be classed as a repair patient & rightly so. Can Diep supporters explain how I'm wrong to flag two foundational flaws with Diep's work and how he deviates from standards in his profession? Deviating from standards in your medical profession has another name - malpractice.
  7. (1) Corn row hair placement in recipient area > Not a SINGLE other elite clinic take this approach (2) FUE harvesting not dispersed across full safe zone but rather punches crowded into one side of the safe zone > Not a SINGLE other elite clinic take this approach to FUE Either Dr.Diep is a man from the future with a revolutionary approach around the fundamentals of how HT's should be done (that is yet to be adopted by H&W, Couto, Konior for some unknown reason) OR Dr.Diep is doing it wrong. We can argue about why he does it but we should be able to agree he decides,
  8. Great snap to find and your right the FUT scar placement position + all around 5 star stellar result points to H&W........& more specifically Dr.Hasson of the pair. What blade number is Elon sporting here do you think - he’s obviously gone a little too far and would be advised to leave it slightly longer for perfect coverage. Hard to say also from photo as he might be a little sweaty but is he suffering a little thinning of temporal points or is it retrograde alopecia?
  9. I would go as far to say your a case that Hasson specializes in - mega session FUT. i could easily see you comprosmising for the more conservative Gabel alternative hairline and then being back in the chair 12 months later working towards something similar to what Hasson feels he can accomplish in one session. I would wait if preference is the Hasson solution - you’ve waited long enough already what’s another couple of months. Borders will open post November election I think.
  10. Very hard to say unless you tell us what the proposed/actual lowering of the hairline is/was - an inch, two inches, temple points.......no frame of reference for anyone to comment whether 1,500 would be good..........for example if you told us you lowered your hairline by half a cm.......then I'd say it should be good density with 1,500 600 into the crown area may improve things a little bit - I could imagine another clinic easily placing the whole 2k in there
  11. One day there will be a cure....hair cloning to create infinite donor reserve to be transplanted seems like the best bet...............I, for one, look forward to being a NW0 with 120 FU's per/cm in my hairline as I'm lowered into my grave 😂 God bless the scientists
  12. Be great to get a doctor's answer on this Q. We all know lots of factors (laxity, head size, donor density) play a big role but someone with average donor density, average laxity and average head side what would the average full utilization of FUT technique followed by max FUE get a person to in terms of lifetime maximum donor? From all I've seen on here and around - I'm going to guess: FUT = c.6,500 Follow on FUE = c2,500 Total: c.9,000 max Thoughts?
  13. From everything I’ve seen the two people who consistently get the best scars I’ve seen are Konior and Hasson. Look at the scars Hasson gets from from unbelievably large FUT sessions 6000+..... Both Konior and Hasson are also FUE masters and could provide this solution if they feel it’s best. id suggest at this point that you consistently start doing scalp laxity exercises to set yourself up in the best possible shape for a revision.
  14. As per title I’ve seen it remarked here that hair loss progression tends to happen aggressively for people in their 20’s & 30’s......then leveling off significantly in 40’s,50’s, 60’s. Why is this? The obvious answer I would imagine is that testosterone levels fall and by extension DHT levels. Any other explanation? Plus anybody seen any scientific data on the same to back this up. Finally a thought experiment - could an individual who religiously took finasteride in their 20/30’s to protect their DHT sensitive hair hit their mid-40’s and come off the drug with little to no hair
  15. Nonsense - even bro scientist's would be offended by the above Your girlfriend/wife shouldn't take finasteride while your hoping to get pregnant - this is the only way for foetal development problems to arise i.e. the female exposes herself to the drug. Now for the scientific evidence.There is evidence in some edge cases that finasteride can potentially negatively effect sperm movility (its activity level & movement forward reducing its ability to make its way to the egg) & sperm volume (the volume of healthy sperms you produce) in some individuals. This has shown to be very
