  1. I want to maximize my donor availability in case I need more procedures in the future as I have a family history of hair loss (though not severe NW6/7 type). My surgeon has a great record of very fine scars, and I generally wear my hair mid-length anyways so it should be practically undetectable. Finally, I think that FUT simply produces more robust grafts Thanks a lot Melvin - you've been a great source of guidance during my research. My surgeon is Dr. Cooley who I selected after numerous consultations and viewing no less than 1,000 hair transplant result photos. I sincerely hope you'
  2. Sorry for a blog-type post, but hope you'll give it a read and share your thoughts/advice: I've booked a HT appointment that's 1 week away and all the sudden I'm being plagued by constant doubts and fears. "Am I too young? What if my hair loss kicks into overdrive and leaves me looking ridiculous? What if I get poor growth, a bad scar, etc.?" The only thing I can say for certain is that I have very high confidence in is my surgeon who, after so much vetting, is one of the only people who I would trust without any lingering feeling of "maybe I should have gone to X instead". I posted
  3. I had the same impression, but if you look at his pre-op pictures his natural hairline (unless he had a prior transplant, but it doesn't look like that to me) is actually that rounded, juvenile type. IMO you don't go wrong my mimicking nature, and what was natural in this case was to reestablish those rounded temple points.
  4. The risky thing about doing an HT at a young age is that you may end up "chasing" your progressing hair loss over the years if you're not on preventive medication. In my opinion, a hair transplant in your situation is not out of the question. I have a low amount of hairline recession like you and when I asked Dr. Bloxham (a highly regarded hair transplant surgeon) during my in-person consultation about whether it's prudent for someone in our shoes to get a hair transplant he said (paraphrasing) "It's not a bad idea because regardless of whether you get a HT now or later you will still need to
  5. Dr. Path has been posting more results recently and I've been extremely impressed with the quality of his work. I see you're mainly concerned about the hairline, and I have to say, he's been knocking them out of the park lately:
  6. This is by far the most active Korean site for hair transplants/hair loss: https://daedamo.com/new/bbs/board.php?bo_table=graft The great thing about that message board is that there are lots of patient (not clinic) posted before/after, much like this forum. Unfortunately, I think you need a Korean phone number to register, and you need to register to view whole conversations... This is one recent example someone posted of Korean graft work and this is another As for which Korean doctors are good, I'm nowhere near familiar enough to be confident making such a recommendation. This pe
  7. Check Europe. This chart was posted recently: One more suggestion, hear me out, if you're willing to break away from the tried and true of this forum there are some incredible FUE surgeons in Korea that are priced roughly between Turkey and NA. The Korean HT "scene" is obscure to most Westerners but if you're willing to put some work in it could be worth it. I've been doing a bit of research lately and their surgical standards, technique, and results are truly top notch.
  8. You may want to avoid creatine as it's been linked to an increase in DHT. Also, according to Dr. Larry Shapiro and Dr. Cooley, whey protein concentrate is better for hair than isolate (link to small sample study). I have no experience with either of these though.
  9. Work looks pristine as expected! If it was anyone else using that many grafts for that area I'd raise an eyebrow, but I've seen the density that Dr. Hasson gets when he really goes for the fences as it looks like he did for you and it's indeed something to marvel at. You have all the ingredients for a great result. Good luck!
  10. Dr. Diep has achieved great results for patients in the past... That being said, everything I've seen recently doesn't inspire confidence at all (to put it very lightly). If an omnipotent being could view all your branching timelines in the future, I think 95% of the time you will have better hair in the ones where you choose Dr. Hasson.
  11. Nice! For the second procedure were any grafts used for the crown? Also, could you post photos of the linear scar from the first FUT?
  12. Depends on how much you're saving, haha. I understand where you're coming from - every dollar you can save without compromising your results is worth pursuing. In your case I think that it is relatively low risk. I'm sure if the doctor trainee transected a graft, the senior doctor would intervene and prevent it from happening again. You do stand to lose some grafts forever, but the number is so low that you may be able to overlook it. In the end, IMO the most important factor of surgery is having a highly experienced doctor doing the majority of the procedure. If he is as well respected a
