Hi to all! First, sorry about my english, I'll give my best. I am now 22 years old, and I'm suffering from hair loss from my age of 19. It first started with front corners of my head, but with the time It got worse and I am now losing hair on whole top of my scalp and in back of my head too (that's in area that I circled in one of my pictures, and It bothers me because I am aware that donor grafts should be there). I am using alpecin liquid lotion once a day and alpecin shampoo aproximatly every three days. I am using those products for about one year and a couple of months now. I stopped using it for two times and every time I noticed that my hair was falling of more then when I use it. I also need to use it because of dandruff and itching, especially on the back top of my scalp. When I use alpecin liquid, I don't have those problems. Before that I used Head&Sholders shampoo because of dandruff and I first thought that was the reason of my hair loss, but I now see that I's genetic. In my family my father my uncle, both of my grandparents are/were bold in some point, and I think that my case is most similar with my father who is now NW 5A or NW 6. He has a little hair on his scalp and hair in back of his head has fine density, but he also has that ''hole'' that I circled on last picture. So, I am now 22, and I am aware that I will probably lose more hair in next couple of years, and I am considering on having a HT (precisely FUE, because I don't want a scar, and probably in Turkey) till my age of 28. But I am wondering if I will have enough donor capacity for a solid HT, because I now see that hair on back of my head is sheeding too. Considering that I will lose more of my hair on top, my expectations from HT would be to get a look of hair that I have now, because I can get solid hair cut from it (I cut hair on my sides to zero, and hair on top on 3, and I got a lot of compliments since I do so ). I could settle with compensation to have less hair on my crown, and get a solid hairline (I would probably get buzz cut then). What do you guys think? Is it real or I should give up from hair and be reconciled on getting bold? Do you think that I should use some other non-surgical treatments instead of Alpecin (I don't want to use drugs with possible side effects). Bellow are the pictures, the first one is from february 2014, and others are from last month.
Just an idea I posted in a thread a while back. If one of the reasons that FUE yield is low is that the grafts stay out of the head too long before being placed, why doesn't a doctor use the "Magnum Method" (ha) 1. Extract 50-100 grafts 2. Place 50-100 grafts 3. Repeat until procedure is complete. So simple. Why isn't this happening more?
Hello, what?s your opinion about my donor? 7 weeks ago I had a surgery with only 1500 grafts, but now the donor seems to be quite thin for me. Could it be shock loss and could the density increase in the next weeks/months? Thank you for your help!
