Hello all, I will be 26 in a few weeks, and I am considering a hair transplant in January 2018 with Dr Tejinder Bhatti. I have found HRN to be quite informative, and there are obviously some very experienced members aboard! As I’ve read so many conflicting things on HTs online, I really don’t know what to do and would be grateful for any advice. Background Started receding at the age of around 19/20. Hair has always been naturally thin and fine (same for all males in my family). Crown area is controlled and it’s only really the temples/hairline which are evident. I use coconut oil about 3 times a week and caffeine shampoo only. I find this helps my hair to grow thicker and fuller, consistent usage = 5/6 years. Hair transplant 1500 grafts have been recommended by Dr Bhatti to restore the hairline. Issues At first it seemed like a no brainer. Receding hair with controlled crown area = small hairline transplant to fix up the overall look. Will look perfect. However, having read so many things online I’m unsure on whether HT is even worth at all? I understand Dr Bhatti’s hairlines have been questioned in the past also. Questions - pictures attached to assist 1) would I be making my overall remote hair worse by going through with a small hairline HT? Shock loss etc etc 2) Dr Bhattis preferred conservative approach widows peak hairline v my preferred straight rounded look ( I’m not necessarily saying low and aggressive, but surely a hairline is supposed to be straight and Symmetrical? This hasn’t been discussed with Dr Bhatti yet, but do others agree on my preferred hairline look? 3) do people think I would actually be able to hide the transplant area when I return to work after 2/3 weeks? Dr Bhatti has said I can grow my hair out quite a lot to cover it up. Has this worked for other people? I usually keep my hair short at the sides and back and long on top anyway. 4) is a hairline transplant at 26 really worth it, if your hair is going to bald further behind the transplanted hair as they say? The question I suppose is.. WHEN will it bald further?! , something which no one can predict. It could happen shortly after HT or it could happen when I’m 40! Who knows! ( the males in my familia all have full heads of hair) makes it even more confusing? Live for the now ? And worry about the future if we get there ? Any advice, comments or past experiences would be greatly appreciated. Cheers dudes. BennyB
Hey Guys, So I have a predicament. Actually, an obsession. I had a 3400 FUT last Jan. 2016 with Dr. Sharon Keene. As you can see in one of the pics, I was really bad, stage 5, worse than I realized. Denial is real. Anyways, I had 1000 grafts in the crown and 2400 in the front. She gave me back my hairline, and when I grow it out, the front looks pretty good. However, I am still hat ridden because the crown is still weak and the mid center is really thinning out. As of now, I think I can get a friend to loan me enough money for 1500 grafts since she did last time and I paid her back. Dr. Keene says 1500 would make a difference, but I'm skeptical. Using my friends credit card would get me 1500 grafts, but I would be in debt to her again for a surgery I don't even know is worth it. I went to a meeting with Mike Ferco the other day. He is a representative of Hasson & Wong, and I felt like I was being sold a car actually, It was really weird because I know how awesome everyone says H&W are, but this guy came across like a salesman who works for Bosley. However, I liked him enough to see what he had to say, and he said for a stage 5, 7000 grafts is needed. I do NOT have the money for 3500 grafts, but if I did I would drive right over the border (I'm in Seattle) and go to H&W. So I don't know what to do. Take my friends kind offer and get 1500 to 1600 grafts, or just try to get my credit straightened up over the next year so maybe I can get work done at H&W? I am so sick of wearing my hat and its driving me crazy not knowing what to do. Any advice, expertise, perspective or criticism is welcomed. Please let me know what you would do given these circumstances. Is 1500 with Dr. Keene worth it?
Hi all, This is my first day as a member of this site, although I have been reading the different threads for some time now. I live in Sydney Australia and I have finally made the decision to go for a HT. Now let the confusion begin. To cut a long story short I have come across a couple of places that look the goods when it comes to the actual procedure. Hasson & Wong have told me that I need @4500 grafts for receding hair line and crown area. So my question/s for anyone that can help me make up my mind are. 1. Has anybody heard of or dealt with Hair Club Lahore, Pakistan. 2. Has anybody been to Hasson & Wong In Canada that currently live in Sydney? 3. Do you guys have suggestions for other HT clinics for those living in Australia? 4. Would Dr. Damkerng Pathomvanich be a good option as he is a lot closer and also a lot cheaper than H & W? Currently I am about 80% decided on Hasson & Wong, as they have a fair bit of experience and a pretty good track record. Having said that I have not actually seen the work first hand on a patient. I am about 3 weeks away from making my final decision and committing to H&W. Any information or guidance will be greatly appreciated and hopefully after my procedure I can return the favor through my personal experience to anyone considering HT in the future.
