  1. I seriously wish I could trade hair places with some people who think they have issues with their hair. 😒
  2. Yeah. I get a lot of light itchiness all over the donor and recipient area for months after that hair transplant. It's just a part of the healing process.
  3. How old are you? Why do you have to wait 5 or 6 years for a revision surgery? Even if you had the first one done at a very young age, it's already done, so waiting until a certain age to get it corrected doesn't make sense unless you are waiting due to finances on your end... or if the surgery isn't really that bad and you just want more to have a thick low aggressive hairline that the Drs refuse to do due to your age.

    Can donor area regenerate new follicles?

    They are also claiming 99% growth rate in only 4.5 months rather than the one year it takes for other hair transplants. You should ask how they get hair to grow faster than hair has ever grown on anyone. They also claim less scarring compared to everyone else FUE and "almost always no visible scarring". It's all a bunch of crap.

    Is A Hair Transplant Permanent?

    No. A hair transplant is not permanent. Hair that is transplanted lasts only as long is that hair would have lasted in the area it was taken from. As you get older and your so called safe area begins to thin with age, so will the transplanted hair since it is the same hair that was in the now thinning so called safe area. If anyone tells you not to worry about that because it doesn't happen until you are over 70 or something, don't believe it because it is not necessarily true (and besides, they then just admitted that it's not permanent. Think about that). It is certainly true that some people will pass away before the transplanted hair falls out, but this does not mean that will be true for everyone. If you are in these forums for a while you will see posts from people asking how their donor area looks and you will see responses that their donor looks weak or that they have retro-grade alopecia meaning they have thinning in the "safe" area. How is that possible if that hair is permanent? Many of those posts asking about their donor are from people who are under 40. Anyone who tells you that transplanted hair is permanent is either misinformed or lying.

    FUE on grey hair

    I have a lot of grey hair and I almost always use Just For Men hair color. I also simply dyed my hair the day before surgery as the Dr said doing that would make it easier for him and we would probably get a better yield because he would be able to see the hairs better. No real issues if you just dye it.
  7. Some guys heal very quickly in the donor area while others get some shock loss and take many months to fully recover. All you can do is wait a few months and see if and how much the donor area improves.

    FUE on grey hair

    On most skin tones, grey hair or very light colored hair is harder for the Dr to see exactly where it is coming out of the scalp from which makes lining up the punch tool a bit more difficult compared with darker hair. Darker hair (unless your skin tone is also very dark) is easy to see the spot it protrudes from the skin from.

    Donald Trump's Hair Mystery Has Been Solved

    If you are going to try to make a serious video about what Trump did with his hair, you should not show fake video clips. This is the real clip from Jimmy Fallon. His hair does not look bad.

    Dr. Hasson's Hairline Design

    In my opinion, many of the low, straight hairlines don't look right, especially if they curve down at the ends to meet the temple peaks. The more natural looking ones usually have more of a V shape.
  11. Wow. If I were you I would not even be considering a hair transplant anymore at this point since this is working so well.
  12. If you are completely smooth bald in the crown then the Dr can simply create a swirl pattern where and how he thinks it should be based on his experience. This is not an issue with reputable Drs and clinics. The swirl doesn't need to be in an exact certain location as long as the hairs are angled correctly and placed in the right direction according to how a natural head of hair would be.

    hair clogs

    It's a good idea to leave certain areas at a lower density. It's all about strategically placing hairs where they will have the bigger impact. Even if you don't leave that area totally alone, you can still tell the Dr to go with a lower density there in order to get more where you really want them.
  14. If you're OK with having some length to your hair then look into doing FUT along the lower portion of the thinned out donor area to remove as much of it as possible and use the grafts from that to place them into the upper portion of the thinned donor area.

    hair clogs

    Totally normal especially due to your curly hair. It looks thick once it's combed, so the simple solution is to comb your hair before going out 😊 I would leave the front alone and concentrate on covering the rest of the balding area.
