Hi everyone, I have a procedure scheduled with Dr. Nadimi out of Dr. Konior's office on 7-20-18, so I'm about 60 days out from surgery. I intend on documenting it as well as I can. This forum has been a great source of information for me and I want to pass along the help by trying to document whatever I can about the experience, my progress and results. That being said, I'm going to try to post pictures at the major milestones, i.e., before, after, 2 weeks, 1 months, and then monthly beyond that. I'll start by providing my backgrounds, I'm a 37-year-old white male and I've been losing my hair for about 17 years. I'd put myself currently at a IV or V. I've been on minoxidil for about 10 years, maybe a little more and it's done a pretty good job I'd say. At Dr. Nadimi's urging, I began taking generic fin about 20 days ago. So far I don't believe I've experienced any sides and I haven't missed a day of taking it. I intend on taking it for about a year to see if or to what degree it helps. I've read quite a bit of information concerning the sides, but you typically only find posts blasting it, although I understand the sides only occur in a small number of individuals. Regardless, I try to put that out of my mind, and to focus on taking affirmative steps to combat my hair loss. My dad is probably about a NW VII, and my brothers were both headed in that direction, but they've both chosen to shave their heads. My dad's father had a pretty good head of hair into his 90's. I believe my mom's father was about a NW VII, but he passed away in his sixties. Regardless, I've decided that since I have the option to try to take action and improve my follicular situation, I've decided to do it. I met with Dr. Nadimi on March 5th, 2018 and I really enjoyed meeting with her. She was pretty blunt with her advice and recommended a 1500 graft FUE procedure. I believe Konior's office tries to limit their FUE procedures to 1500 grafts, but I've noticed they've harvested between 100 and 200 additional grafts if its available and time permits. If it's an option, I'll certainly encourage it because I definitely have some space to cover. I've taken about 15 days off of work, so between those days and the weekends, I'll have about 17 days (including the date of the procedure) to recover. I'll be working from home to the best of my ability, so my apartment will basically be my office. I believe I'll need at least one additional procedure, but my hope is that I respond well to the fin and it stabilizes the loss and - with any luck - thickens some of my miniaturized hair requiring fewer grafts down the line. Ultimately, I'll see the full results from the HT at a point when I'll have been on fin for about 18 months, so it'll give me a better sense of the next step. Regardless, I just wanted to put my procedure on interested parties' radar in case they're interested in following along as a source of info for anyone considering booking a procedure with Dr. Nadimi. Thanks.
Hi Guys, Intro: I am 32 years old and have been reading up on this forum for the past 5 years or so but have never posted . Now that i have gone through a HT procedure i would like to post my results for your opinions and will be updating from time to time. I have always had a high forehead since childhood but noticed my hairline receding when i was around 20. I had been wanting to get a HT from the time i was 24 but waited it out since i it was still bearable to me and was not in a great hurry also i dont think that my hairloss was too much at the time and it has been receding very slowly. I have never taken any medicines or ointments to stop hair loss. Anyway after years of reading up on different forums online and doing my research i finally narrowed down to Dr. Tejinder Bhatti at Darling Buds clinic and booked an appointment for the 3rd of February 2016 which is today as i am writing this post from my hotel room after the surgery! Meeting with Dr Bhatti : On meeting Dr Bhatti the evening prior to surgery for consultation he recommended that i go for between 1200-1300 grafts but on my insistence he agreed for 1500 since i think my hairloss rate is acceptable for my age at 32 and wanted the lowest hairline for my HT. I will be going in for my Post procedure wash tomorrow morning and then heading back to delhi in the afternoon . I will keep posting updates on my result so please feel free to give your opinions and any questions u might have!
Dr. Arocha and his team performed a 1500 FUT artistic hair restoration on this patient. Using minimal grafts, Dr. Arocha was able to help this patient achieve more density and frame his face. The after photos were taken 10 months after his procedure. Before: After: Before: After: Before: After:
