  1. Hey Bill I never really left I have been lurking in the backround. Seems your "the Man" of the message board now. Congrats! I was going to contact Dr. Feller about my pics and see if he wanted to put something together for the site. My camera took a dump so we'll see.
  2. I had all three of my procedures with Dr. Feller who I can't recommend enough. Top notch work! Dr. Feller had told me in the past that when the staples come out you can start up your gym routine again but you will hear many different opinions on this. I am a little worried with this being my 3rd about starting up again that soon so I will verify with Dr. Feller beforehand. As far as styling goes to me its only a matter of if you have coverage in the areas you want to style. You are not going to get your "teen hair" back but with the correct amount of grafts you can do anything as far as styling, perhaps just not as dense/full as you might expect. You know what this got me thinking I have seen so many after shots of guys who got 2 or 3 procedures and went from bald to hairy but during the time they didn't have hair to style they forgot how to style it! I mean come on, you shell out all that hard earned money to get a nice head of hair but you get that stupid greasy combed to the side look. Come on guys you got hair now rock out!!!!!!
  3. Whats up everyone its been a long time since I posted here but to bring you up to speed I had a 2,000 graft procedure, my 3rd, on Dec 4th. Of course everything went beautifully but I am at that point where the lack of physical activity is making me nuts. I am off from work and of course have not been to the gym. Yep I am sitting around getting a big fat a$$. Oh what I wouldn't give for a chest workout right now with a half hour of cardio. Arggg what did everyone here do to pass the down time and how soon did you start your gym routine again?

  5. I had a transplant back in September and have been tanning since. I use a stand up tanning booth and just keep my hat on. Not all the way on mind you, just enough to cover my scalp. Have not had any problems at all and I have a nice tan!
  6. Great results but does he have any grafts left just in case he thins out in another area or is he safe for the long haul? I got 2700 grafts an the front part of my head and am going for another in the future. His pattern of baldness looks like mine and I hope I don't need that many grafts! I will most likley get another 2500 and hope that does the trick. The thought of paying out to get up to that graft count makes me feel poor.....but hairy!
  7. Ya I had surgery on Sep 13th with Feller. He is definetly one of the top docs in hair restoration. I had 2500 grafts done and am starting to see the results. I think you paid WAY to much for your first procedure! I paid 8500 for my procedure and my second will be with Feller as well. He is the Man.
  8. I also had to jump in on this thread here. Hey dhuge67 I think it would be wise if nothing else to have a couple consultations with other docs. I live in the Eastern PA area and travled to see Dr. Feller after other previous consultations. Dr. Feller gave me sound advise and did not pull any punches. I highly recommend traveling to Great Neck, NY and meeting him. I am 26 years old myself and had a transplant in September with Feller. 2700 grafts out of a planned 2500 procedure. It was interesting expirence and the results are starting to show. But, I can also now see where more work will be needed which is not a surprise because Feller told me this would be the case. Don't rush into getting this done! I would simply postpone with Pistone for awhile and get free consultations with Feller and True/Dorin which are both up the Jersey turnpike in NY if you live in east PA. If they give the same info that Pistone did then rock on and get the transplant. You might even decide to go with someone else instead! In conclusion I feel your pain as far as being young and bald. Its a raw deal but at least you know there are answers. Just make the right decision and in the end it will pay off. Pistone might be the next Feller or Hasson/Wong but also could be a Bosley reject *shudders*
  9. I am a little over 1 month post op and would like to get a second transplant to cover the crown area. About how long did others here wait to get their second?

  11. You know what Billy I think having a transplant in your case was a mistake. I mean come on your a Lions fan for crying out loud. Watching them will have you hair falling out all over again! HA HA HA But in all seriousness your looking good!

    Scalp Med

    I saw the infomercial as well. The "results" of their product are incredible or so they want you to think. During my time watching it they never said what was in this product and were very vague on many other points all the while bashing any of the proven treatments we have today. It was a rather shameless advertisment right down to the sobbing women saying how Scalp Med saved her not to mention the rather shapely hostess that was ready to fall out of her blouse. Until I hear some hardcore evidence that this stuff is the "miracle drug" we have been waiting for I will stick to my transplants, Rogaine, and Propecia thank you very much!
  13. This is a joke topic right?

    Well I wouldn't feel good going without the hat but thats just me. THere are concealers available to cover up that you had a transplant although I have no need for them. Some people from what I gather leave their hair long to cover up the redness and the grafts from the transplant. I believe it takes several weeks for the redness to go away maybe longer for others. Feller has had open houses in the past to show off his work. Give him a call and see if its possible to schedule a consultation where you can inspect his work. I don't live in the New York area, actually I live a couple hours from there so I plan to put pics of my transplant up as soon as I get the pics from Dr. Feller.

    Im going back to work not this Friday but next Friday. I'm fortunateto work in a warehouse and wear a hat to work so I anticipate no problems. As far as my selection of Dr. Feller, I did a years worth of research and decided on him based on other consults and patient reviews. Most of all call it a gut feeling. I just knew that Dr. Feller was the man.
