  1. I’d think twice about getting a 2nd hair transplant at asmed if they couldn’t even get the right density for 5000 GRAFTS, I mean get that into your head 5000. ignore the guys that say “yeah it looks great 😁” just being honest here like the few others, you didn’t get what you spent above the odds in Turkey for and you are CLEARLY aware of it and so is Asmed hence the offer for a revise. this guy had the exact same issue as yourself and was recommended a 2nd op by asmed and it still turned out whack, watch his videos. In Turkey Cinik is well known but his donor work isn’t the best in my opinion, id maybe recommend something like Hair of Istanbul (check their insta for their work) it’s not a clinic which comes up in the forums but I’ve seen the work and seen individual reviews and believe it’s worth checking out. Of course there is also a clinic in turkey which only uses Drs to operate on you as well and they cost around the same as Asmed (despite asmed using technicians to do most of your work).
  2. I’d like to see how the scars would look like with a number one on the sides and back or even a 0.5. you have a similar skin/hair contrast to myself and I also get the same haircut 😄.
  3. Liking the temple peak progress! Did you notice major results at the 2 month mark?
  4. Could you share an image of your donor before the procedure but when you had short hair is possible. That way we could compare the changes of how much patching has happened.
  5. Taking it 3x a week at 1mg as recommended by the hairloss show. Initially took it for a month nearly 2 years ago and noticed sides within a month. I’m on month 2 and no sides. Fin stays in the body tissue for a few days.
  6. There’s having scars which we all know comes with the territory of having an FUE which I mentioned in my previous comment and then there having a patchy moth eaten looking donor, 2 huge different things. Yes I understand different characteristics affect how the donor will look such as skin and hair colour and the contrast as I’ve been looking into this stuff for a while. My main point is that I believe that using a larger punch does obviously cover more surface area leading to a larger scar and if it’s done in the thousands then you get what I mean. No matter what the specific Dr tries to say regarding scarring the punch size is vital, not many people mention this and just go with the flow and then they have the extra headache of even having to do SMP. Imagine not being able to get short back and sides or even a fade because you have really patchy donor. Melving you say that you can see signs of surgery only if you look for it and that’s how it’s meant to be, if it’s moth eaten then it sticks out like a sore thumb . I’ve watched Joe Tillman interview Dr Sethi, when Sethi brought up that he believes that you can extract 50% of the donor without anyone noticing anything Joe immediately stops him telling him he doesn’t believe it’s true, Dr Sethi then just goes along with Joe. So which one is it?? Just to note I’ve seen 1 or 2 donor results from this forum at Eugenix and they seem ok when kept short as the contrast between skin and hair is minor.
  7. There you go. A huge reason for FUE is that your able to keep your hair quite short. Why is it that some clinics such as Asmed, HLC and Pekiner have great donors after thousands of grafts being extracted? Yes there are scars but they are barely visible and well hidden, they don’t wave a magic wand or anything I believe it’s just up to the punch size and how the grafts are extracted. Check the link: https://www.dermhairclinic.com/best-punch-size-fue-hair-restoration/ there have also been a few studies.
  8. I just had a read of your previous thread on eugenix being put up as a IHRP member and someone put up a donor image of a patient with a clearly depleted donor, looking at this patient here it seems that there is obvious patching even with just over 3k grafts taken (with hair grown out). Im wondering if this is due to the size of the punch used since Eugenix have told me over WhatsApp and email that they use 0.95mm for scalp and 0.8 only for beard, I’ve read on this and have seen certain clinics say that they would never go above a 0.8 as it causes more trauma and it clearly covers more surface area when it comes to scarring. Eugenix’s response is that the more tissue around the follicle the better the survival rate which is understandable but I don’t want to risk having patches at the back of my head if I prefer to keep my hair short. I understand people in India tend to keep their hair longer so a larger punch size won’t be noticeable when the hair is kept quite long, but clinics like HLC and Asmed provide results where the donor look barely touched (even when the patient has a fade) and they are extremely focused on the donor preservation. But Eugenix do produce great results, the donor is my main concern before jumping into surgery. Could you speak more on this please.
  9. I’ve seen an interview with dr Pradeep and Joe where he goes that the DHT method along with the no root touch technique has resulted in quite a few early growers in their clinic.
  10. Is #1 the shortest you usually go for? Looking at you hair and the recipient I think you’d def suit a #0.5. Looks good BTW!
  11. Can you upload a image of your donor? You mentioned low donor reserves, I’m curious to see how it would look after the extractions.
  12. I’ve used toppling in the past and it can get messy but this was on the top of the scalp. I’ve never heard of people using it on the donor, in guessing it is going to come off easily even with the hold spray. Best option especially if you keep your hair short on the back and sides is to maybe get SMP done but be careful as there are some dodgy SMP clinics out there.
