  1. i am NW6 and had 1 FUT done. I am not on finasteride. If you are going to have multiple FUT surgeries, you do not need to be on finasteride, because your entire head will be transplanted hairs pretty much.
  2. its been 3 months and my scar and laxity recovery has been really great so far! Like I feel normal, so i can't imagine what 4 more months would look like
  3. I had my first FUT surgery in December 2020 (focused on the frontal half of scalp). And now I am going back in July 2021 to continue at the back of scalp/crown area. I am a Norwood 6. I don't think it's foolish if you are doing different areas of the scalp.
  4. It's because my sides were not strong enough. But my back is. And the maximum he was able to harvest was 2,100 grafts. He said this is fine, I just would have to have multiple sessions vs one big one. You can see my crown in my previous post. Also when can I start doing scalp laxity exercises after a transplant (don't want to stretch the scar or anything)?
  5. Does the crown take up more grafts? I am a Norwood 6. I did about 2,100 FUT grafts in my first procedure for a conservative frontal half of my scalp (did not address the temples). The surgeon said it might take 2 more FUT's to cover the back half and the crown dip to get full head coverage. I also lost the temples and was hoping to get that done with the 3rd procedure (when covering the crown dip). Do you think the temples would be addressed in the 3rd procedure, or will a 4th (potentially FUE) procedure have to be done? Thanks for the scalp exercises tip, I will look into that.
  6. I am 2 months post-op. How long until guys usually see new hair growth from the transplanted hair? Also my surgeon said I can get another transplant as soon as 6 months if I wanted to (people recommend 1 year just to see the full results first), is this true? How many FUT's can guys usually undergo (on average)? Like how can you tell if your skin doesn't have enough laxity. Is it also true that every subsequent FUT strip, the amount of grafts you harvest decreases? (like 1st transplant can be 2,500 grafts, but the 2nd strip will only give 2,000 grafts, and then 3rd would be 1,500)?
  7. Yeah I'm 2 months out and still have numbness at the donor and recipient site. Like everyone said, it can take up to 6 months to get full sensation back. It does not hurt, just a weird feeling like @hairlossPAsaid lol, it's hard to describe it. You can sleep and shower normally.
  8. He said he is 12 months post-op. But I agree it could be the products that could be making the hairs look/feel thicker.
  9. For your advanced hair loss and long-term management: do FUT, not FUE. You will probably need at least 3 hair transplants to get full scalp coverage.
  10. Hey at day 10, start scrubbing off all the scabs now! You can scrub with some more force now and also use the shower head normally. You do not need to use cups anymore at this point. Your grafts are pretty much anchored into your skin. But also follow the post-op instructions of your surgeon. You should have a scab-free scalp afterwards.
  11. These forums have helped me make better/informed decisions regarding hair transplantation. I saw both good and bad reviews of doctors. I don't even see the incentive of lying or false promoting. My experience has felt authentic on here with people helping each other out. Just remember, you are not forced to do anything. At the end of the day, you are the ultimate decision maker of your life. Extensive research, multiple consultations, and reviewing results before making a decision to undergo a hair transplantation is from your own control and efforts.
  12. Yeah I'm two weeks post-op from my surgery and do not have any COVID symptoms. The mask didn't bother me at all. Totally forgot I had it on. They also gave me a surgical jacket to wear cause it was cold. I was super cozy. Only had mild discomfort when laying on my neck when laying in different positions for hours.
  13. No I could definitely tell my surgeon was making precise incisions on my scalp, not at this rapid fire rate.
  14. Good points. Yeah it depends on the surgeon. If they are highly rated/recommended (especially from the list on these forums, it may be worth paying). But if it’s from a small clinic (or a place with unknown history/reviews), then paying them might be kinda iffy. OP, I still recommend picking one of the surgeons on this Forums list and go from there.
