Hi all good day, Am new here on the forum and i was wondering if someone can give me some advice. Can you recommend a good hair transplant surgeon that has experience with African hair at an affordable price? Also I have been researching for quite some time, is anyone familiar with these clinics in Turkey: 1. Comfort Zone Cosmetic Surgery 2. Medical Park Hospital Group Hair Transplant They offer hair transplants at affordable prices. Thank you.
This black woman had a hair transplant restoration by Dr. Diep 1 year ago of 3,326 hair grafts. Because of the new hairline, her look has changed. 1's= 889 grafts 2's= 2,298 grafts 3's= 134 grafts 4's= 5 grafts
Amazing FUE hair transplant result on Black African man with Norwood 3, frontal hair loss. Dr. Diep transplanted 1,198 hair grafts into the frontal area, lowering his hairline, creating a natural and dense Black African hairline. Since the Black African hair and root are very curly, it is very difficult to harvest by the FUE method and produce excellent result. Through many years of experience, Dr. Diep has invented the "DFC" method, better known as Diep FUE Curve technique, a form of FUE to specifically to harvest any time of hair whether straight, slightly bent or very curly with precision and minimal damage to the roots. Due to Dr. Diep's invention, The DFC technique, Mhtaclinic now can gaurantee FUE harvesting on Blacks at least 1,300 hair grafts without the need to do the FUE Pre test for the client. Hair transplant is an art form, requiring not only the surgical skill of the hair surgeon, but his or her artistic and aesthetic talent as well to produce natural looking hairline. Dr. Diep specializes in both FUE and FUT surgeries. 1,198 hair grafts: 1's: 378 hair grafts 2's: 608 hair grafts 3's: 141 hair grafts 4's: 71 hair grafts To observe more of Dr. Diep FUE work of art on this Black man, please click and view the links below: http://youtu.be/FUpJOKniXr0 http://youtu.be/pogKzqiJIBY http://youtu.be/jq8hDhwUSAY http://youtu.be/DL5q96HCPao http://youtu.be/4MrbzjNky5s http://youtu.be/NsH5hOyffVQ http://youtu.be/ZYpyaXNWlhY'>http://youtu.be/ZYpyaXNWlhY'>http://youtu.be/ZYpyaXNWlhY'>http://youtu.be/ZYpyaXNWlhY http://youtu.be/fHGvmbaytjE http://youtu.be/Q5Yz74O25N8 http://youtu.be/ZYpyaXNWlhY
Alright guys I've been coming to this site on and off since probably late 2007. So ive done a good amount of research. I've finally made an initial decision to make at least push for a HT. Basically I'm just really tired of hats. Really putting a damper on my life man. I'm sure many of you understand so I'm not gonna go on a rant. Let's just say I have reached the point where I have had enough. So I am now kind of just looking for guidance. So I guess I'll just sort of go through my thoughts and questions...im not expecting any one person to answer everything but please feel free to comment wherever you see fit. Keep in mind that some things i may say, I know better, just speaking out of frustration. Alright so first off, I'm am African American and looking to get a fue. I really really don't want a big scar in the back of my head. I mean who does. I want to be able to wear my hair short. However I have not been able to find many good pics of African Americans Hair translplants let alone FUEs. Any links or pics would be greatly appreciated. I kno it FUTs are widely considered to give you more coverage for your money. I guess I'm not necessarily looking for it to be extra thick or anything. I am totally fine with the "buzzed I'm not going bald look". Is that even possible to coordinate that with a surgeon??. Or I could easily just shave the sides and just have the top. I've also read that African American hair is curly so not as many grafts are needed to achieve a thicker look? So I'm thinking maybe a 1500 or 2000 grafts or so? And as far is the scarring from fue is concerned, I'm not too worried about it. I have a darker complexion so I can't see scarring being that noticeable or a problem. Plus I've seen plenty of posts where the stated they didnt notice any scarring. I reside in the state of nc. I've looked at a few surgeons recommended on this site and most of them require a consultation for a price. I'm looking for the best yet least expensive fue surgeon if at all possible? Is there a price range here? I think $10 per graft is a little much..any information would greatly be appreciated. Now hypothetically say I did decide to go with a fut. For coverage/thickness sake. How long are we talking for the scar to heal? And I know I'll never be able to shave my head completely. So, what are the chances I would at least be able to wear my hair short one day? Or would I have to rock a mini fro for the rest of eternity lol. How about how Michael Vick wears his hair? Would that be possible..I am not familiar with the 2 and 3 blades you guys say. and how long after surgery would it take to heal, where i could go in public with out people noticing? and is scar healing anything different with african americans? I believe i read something about it before but do not recall. Correct me if I'm wrong but FUTs generally go for 4-5 per graft (if there is any good surgeons for less please let me know, don't care if it's India or somewhere). But any honest feedback would be nice. But here is the thing...I am only 25...Looking at a 5A maybe. I guess is started when I was around 21 or when I had braids. Didn really notice it until after I cut my hair. I think that could have accelerated the process (traction alopecia). I already know what you guys are going to tell me. But I have put alot of thought into this over the years. You are going to probably tell me to wait. But I am young now, I feel like I should have my hair now. If this gives me 5 to 10 years then so be it. I don't really mind shaving my head when I get older but I need to be living my life to the fullest now. They'll probably have some new method by then anyway. and there is this notion (could be my frustration talking), that even after a transplant you still need to be on meds??!! Isn't that the point of a transplant. Not to have to do that anymore. I dont want, every time i go on a trip, to be worried about "oh, did i forget my freakin minoxidil and pills". I know you need to predict future hairless maybe throughout genetics and also need to stabilize it. I really don't know much about my biological father. I know he is bald now, but I know he had hair at my age. And my grandfathers on my moms side Didn go much further then I am now and he was like 78 and that is where i get most of my genetics believe it or not but i know genetics can be a tricky thing. As far as stabilizing it. I've tried every natural method I could find. I took procerin for about 3 months. Then starting taking provillus for about a year and a half. Tried biotin, protein, nioxin, hair products to make my hair healthier, etc.. I just can't see myself taking finasteride. I can not have limp dick. And it's not meant to work on the frontal hairline anyhow, which is what I desire the most. So first I'd like to see the best yet least expensive fue surgeon. I don't care if I have to travel to India or someplace as long as travel fare plus surgery doesn't cost more then it originally would..and I know someone will say price shouldn matter when selecting a good surgeon, but still have to take it into consideration. There always has to be a way to get the bang for your buck. And then as a second option FUTs. I guess answer this, if i were to get a FUT would i EVER, (with what we know now, concealers, scar FUE, etc.. and EVER being the key word) be able to wear my hair short. Say like how dwayne wade or obama has theirs?? Oh, and one more thing, if you can tell from the pics.. I have these lines in my head (another reason why i want hair), I believe that is another result from the braids because they were NOT there before, believe me! If there is any procedure to remove them, or anything i can do. Please Please let me know. and the red mark is where i prefer my hairline start. Thanks for reading if you did. Any help or guidance will greatly greatly be appreciated. Thanks. *Random sidenote questions*...Any idea why TV personalities who are balding dont get transplants? I know they have the money and the access to the best surgeons. There are a few political analysts on msnbc whos heads just look a complete mess. im just like why would you get on television like that.. also one such as tony Kornheiser from PTI, espn..Well he probably just doesn't care. But what about Mike Tirico from ESPN. and why did Joe Biden not go in for a second prodedure?.. Just curious lol.
