  1. Okay, so I've been scouring this forum for results posted by Dr. Wesley's office, and I've noticed that you're pretty skeptical of his abilities. I've looked into doctors in New York including Bloxham, Shaver, Dorin and Wesley. I'm leaning towards Wesley now. I was really apprehensive when I saw his results because I thought the same thing as you seem to think. For NW 2/3 recession, he gets pretty meager coverage for the numbers of grafts he uses. But the specific technique he uses actually has a unique appeal compared to a lot of HT docs, at least to me. His whole thing is not just covering t
  2. Thanks for the thoughts, everyone. Anyone have any experiences with a preventative-style surgery? Any regrets? Anybody wish they had done a surgery like that? I'm leaning more heavily towards preventative. I understand that finasteride typically works very well, but I figure a preventative surgery is the best method for someone who wants to ensure he doesn't go through an ugly balding phase. If I stay on finasteride, it may keep my hair looking good enough for the rest of my life, but there's a not insignificant chance that it'll yield to worse balding down the line. A preventative surger
  3. Yeah, I definitely don't want the horn hair thing. Though the one thing I'm considering is that maybe if it starts to thin a bit more in the forelock after transplanting the receded parts, I can get away with styling my side hairs to hide the thinning. Then I can fill in those parts with new transplants. I'm not thrilled with that idea, though. I am taking finasteride at this point to help soften the blow of any shock loss. Minoxidil, too.
  4. I wanted to get people's opinions and, if you've got 'em, experiences with two different styles of hair transplants I've noticed. Let me try to illustrate with an example: Say you've got a receding hairline and you're thinning on top. The thinning isn't so bad, but it's obvious you're likely going to lose a decent amount of hair there in the future. However, what's really bad is the recession. It's really nasty. Here's where the two methods differ: Restorative transplant: This is pretty much what every HT doc does. They'll fill in the parts that are totally bald or thinning pretty
  5. This is what I'm working with. I'm on finasteride and minoxidil currently. I assume I'll be able to fill in the sparse-looking areas with a HT now, but I'm mostly concerned with the very front of my forelock and how thinning progresses in the future. I'd like to be able to get multiple HTs in the front before it gets as sparse as the area immediately behind it. Is that realistic?
  6. Greetings everyone. Long time listener, first time caller. I've got a question about my specific type of hair loss and how feasible my plan is for attacking it. I have a pretty classic NW2/3 hairline, and I recently noticed that there is some generalized thinning all throughout the forelock. The hairline around my temples is getting to be pretty gnarly. The very front is faring okay, but the rear forelock is a bit worse. I'd like to get a transplant to restore the most diffuse thinning areas and strengthen my hairline somewhat conservatively. I'm sure this can be done for my first procedu
