  1. Thanks for these comments - very helpful. Raphael 84 - it's great advice to have the surgeon see me beforehand - this is what I intend to do. My scalp doesn't show signs of scarring/bad work from the HT but I would like it examined properly. I'm 41 and on fin for 1 year which seems to be working. Really interesting that you mention scalp condition. I have been suffering from an intensely itchy scalp on and off (no dandruff) for over a year and half now - maybe longer - well before the first HT. The itching comes and goes but at times it's felt like burning and feels very tender e
  2. I'm considering a 2nd HT to add density to the front where I feel the first HT is lacking somewhat in sdensity. Is DHI or pre-made slits a better/safer to minimise shockloss and transection risk? I think I've read DHI is better - but grateful for views on this.
  3. Yes Unbald Eagle - I think too few grafts were used on both of us. Not really wanting to lower my hairline - so curious as to whether doctors would place grafts just in front of the hairline and not really lower it or just transplant in between hairs. Temple points would need to be strengthened. I'm most worried about them placing grafts in between existing hair as I don't want transection. I have heard shaving the recipient area is best and some docs mandate this. Although really not looking forward to that (I didn't have to shave completely last time).
  4. Thanks Melvin - yes I think it will need more grafts to get me happy. Shaving the recipient area and shockloss will be the hardest part.... Dr. Reddy seems solid but I understand he is booked well into next year. I'm looking at options in Europe (not Turkey though).
  5. photos before ht attached. Yes I think not enough grafts were placed. Another clinic has quoted 1200-1500 grafts to create a dense result. But I am concerned about losing existing hairs due to permanent shock loss. Has anyone had experience of adding density in between existing hairs? Success or otherwise? I am waiting for a face to face consultation with the uk clinic so don’t want to name them until that has happened.
  6. The HT was at a UK clinic (not recommended on this site). I had 1200 grafts implanted into the area as shown in the first photo. I think a big part of the problem is not enough grafts were planted. However, I'm concerned about shock loss and permanent shock loss to existing grafts and looking worse if I go for a 2nd HT. On fin for 1 year and seems to be working.
  7. Photos attached. First one of showing the day after my HT. Others are showing the result after nearly 10 months under harsh lighting - i have tried to highlight the issue rather than hide it away for the purposes of this post. when my hair is arranged properly the gaps in density can sometimes be relatively hidden or harder to spot - as in the final photo taken outside with no product. Essentially my native hair can help hide the problem. But under harsh lighting it is nearly impossible to hide. any advice from people who have had a 2nd transplant to add density in the
  8. Hi Seb1928 - is there any update on how your 2nd hair transplant is progressing? I am considering getting a 2nd hair transplant to add density. I am concerned about shock loss- especially permanent of grafts from the 1st transplant. Have your shock loss grafts recovered? How are you feeling about the 2nd procedure?
  9. Has anyone had any success or failure with a second HT to add density? Mine is the frontal area - temples and forelock. I am concerned about permanent shock loss of hairs transplanted in the first HT. ? Did you have shock loss of hairs from the first HT or not? Did shock loss hairs grow back? Interested if people are satisfied with the result - or has it barely improved or made things worse? There seem to be few examples of these cases on the forums (although seem to be plenty of examples where people are unhappy with density after the first HT!) My background: First HT w
