  1. Thanks so much I might have to pay him a visit when this Corona thing blows over!
  2. Hello all, I would like to push my transplanted hairline up about 1cm as I feel it is too low. I'd like to do it with laser or electrolysis, I know it's wasting the grafts but I don't want lots of little white dots if they're removed by FUE. My question is, would this leave scars or redness? My implantations were done with a Choi Pen (DHI). Can anyone link me to a case where someone had their hairline moved up without any visible scarring? Or can anyone recommend me a doctor in Europe who has successfully moved up a hairline? Thanks, K
  3. Hello everyone, I am a little bit paranoid about the naturalness of my transplanted hairline. Even though they used single hairs on the hairline, and probably the finest hairs I had, it still has a slightly pluggy appearance. I think this is because I have black hair on white skin. I found a very interesting article from South Korea, in which they used laser hair removal (but not completely remove) on females with transplanted hairlines to soften them up and make them look more natural. If you look at the before and after picture in this article it is quite incredible. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4323598/ As you may know, laser hair removal is done by reducing the pigment and size of the hair follicle and it requires sometimes up to 8 sessions to completely get rid of the hair. These guys did 2-3 sessions so that they didn't remove the transplanted hair but made it thinner, I think it looks amazing and I would like to try it. If the worse case scenario happens and it completely removes the hair instead of making it thinner, then I'm okay with that too because I do think my new hairline is a little bit low for my liking. My question is, does anyone know of a case done by a man and can give me some examples? Or has this not been done before? My other concern is this, I shaved a very small section of my hairline to see what is looks like underneath. I was surprised to find it's still pink at 4 months, does anyone know when this goes? Also, there are very small little bumps, it's not cobblestoning, more subtle but still visible, I think the term is tenting but even then it's not as extreme as the examples if you google that term. If I did laser removal on a bit of the hairline, would the pinkness and bumps show up? Could these also be fixed by laser? I will be consulting with a laser specialist soon but wanted to know your thoughts. Thanks, K
  4. Like you Melvin I didn't even realise it at first, at age 16 my friend bluntly said 'you've got a receding hairline'. I looked in the mirror and thought oh yeah, it is going back a bit. Didn't think anything of it until a year later I was in the barbers and he lifted up my fringe and said 'how old are you?' I said 17 he said 'Shit man'. It was after that I became very self conscious and grew my hair long to cover it. A year after that at 18 I wasn't able to hide it anymore so I just cut it short and wore the hairline proudly, I was much less attractive though, I think a receding hairline can suit guys but as a teenager I just looked ill. At aged 21 (Norwood 4) one guy was shocked to find out my age, he said he thought I was 30 The hardest part was being at university where all my friends were having lots of sex and I was lonely as hell. I was very successful with girls prior to the hair loss, I hate it when someone says it's all about confidence because that's not true. I still tried, and I was still confident but always rejected even when I went for not very attractive girls. The reason I know for a fact that premature baldness was the dealbreaker is because I always get female attention when I have a hat on. I recently heard of the term 'hatfish', google examples it means when you're shocked to find that a guy is ugly when they take their hat off, that's me. 4 months ago, aged 23 I felt like my back was against the wall. My hair looked so bad that I was forced to decide between shave it or HT. I had some money saved and just thought why not, lets give it a go and if it looks bad I'll shave it and SMP the scars. Fingers crossed everything works out okay and I'll be able to enjoy the rest of my 20s. It went so quick that I never got to experience being a young man experimenting with styles or being able to express my personality.
  5. Hi all, I've had a few whiteheads show up in my recipient area around the hairline. I squeezed one and it popped with a fair bit of pus coming out but that was followed by a little bit of blood, does that means I've damaged the graft? Are you supposed to just leave them? Thanks, K
  6. Hi all, I'm well into my ugly ducking phase and I guess I'm just looking for reassurance. I often see people saying a hair transplant was the best decision they ever made and I would love to know some success stories about how your life was changed for the better. Did it motivate you to get in shape and start looking after yourself? Did it improve your success with women? Did you find yourself excelling in your career? Are you much happier than you were before? Are there any negatives? Thanks for your time, K
  7. It's simply about price for me, I don't have much money. I can stretch to afford the more trusted and experienced doctors in Turkey and even then it's still like a fraction of the price in the UK. Plus, I haven't really seen any great work from the UK. I'd be open to any other country really but I don't know where else you can get a great surgeon for under 3 euros a graft.
  8. Hi guys, I had a hair transplant but they did not do anything on the temples, I think it looks a bit weird that there is a dense solid hairline but thinning wispy temples. Just wondered if anyone knew of a place in Turkey that does great and natural work on the temples? Thanks, K
  9. Hello, I'm going for my DHI in Turkey soon, which clinic did you go with? Could you attach some pics? Thanks
