  1. Yeah, unbelieveable. I even considered questioning him in the video comments, but this would probably make the patient feel bad, so I didn't.
  2. Definately will not even come close to that clinic.
  3. In Santa Catarina, Brazil. It seems to be the implanted hair :P.
  4. Hello, everyone. I was watching this Hair transplant and it seemed interesting. I'm no doctor, but his donor area looked very poor, and the bald area was considerably big. Still, the doctor decided to do what he calls a dense packing on the front, with no distribution to other bald areas, aside from the crown. Also, the number of follicles extracted seems to be more than his got available. It would be better if you watch the video, but I attached some pictures in case you don't want to. What do you guys think?
  5. Hello everyone, just an update. I've been to another doctor, we examined my hair scalp with a trichoscope. There are quite a few hairs close to "full miniaturization" on my bald area and, according to the doctor, those can be saved with the proper treatment (Propecia, rogaine and some vitamins). Also, he evaluated my donor area as 5.5/10 (very different from what the other doctor (who acted as salesman) told me). Therefore, I got back on meds and will wait a year before considering a hair transplant again. I'm so thankful for this forum because it provided me so much information that I was able to "judge" what doctors were telling me. If it wasn't for this forum, I could've gotten a premature hair transplant. Research, research and research. Kind regards, Arthur Passos.
  6. Hi, an update. I've managed to get a better picture of my grandmother's head.
  7. First of all, thank you so much for your consistent reply. I really appreciate it.
  8. Yeah, I know I should have continued with minoxidil. I'll try it again. I've tried fina 1mg, but the side effects (low libido) were very hard on me, so I stopped it.
  9. Hello everyone. I'm 22, fom Brazil, and I'm balding really fast. I've noticed I was balding when I was 17. There is no family history, except for my mother and grandmother's thin hair. Here's the thing: I went to the doctor when I was 18 looking for some kind of treatment. He recommended minoxidil and some vitamins. He also said I couldn't get a hair transplant because my donor area was very poor. I believed him, because, IMHO, my donor area is poor. I stopped minoxidil a few months later because I wasn't seeing any improvements and I thought I could shave my head some day. Four years later, I can't shave it. I decided to go for a hair transplant, but I've been researching and I see a lot of doctors and non doctors claiming it's usually a bad idea to get a hair transplant in their early 20s. They even say it's unethical to do a hair transplant without thinking on the long term. Anyways, I've talked to a local doctor who does hair transplants. He said my donor area is very good and there is no problem at all on performing hair transplant on young patients. When I questioned him about another doc saying the opposite. He said: every doctor is going to tell a different thing. I don't know who to believe. I'm starting to think he's saying my donor area is very good only because he wants the money. He asked me 4.738,80 Euros for the procedure. I've attached some pictures of my wet hair to show you how thin my hair is. It's wet because I let it grow a lot so I can hide it. If it wasn't wet, it'd be harder for you guys to see it. I need help. Is he lying to me or is my donor area good enough to do hair transplantation in such an young age. What do you guys think? Any suggestions? This is my first post here. I've read the guidelines and it looks fine to me, but please, correct me if I'm doing it wrong.
