Hello guys! Just like many of you in this platform, I am also here to seek help regarding hair transplant recommendations. I have been balding for few years now. I started loosing frontal hair first, and my forehead increased. My hair at the crown and front would not grown longer compared to hair at sides and back. Some pictures I found from few years ago that shows my balding crown. My baldness is hereditary from dad's side. I will attach some pictures of progressive balding, and some changes in the past few months due to medicines. To give you an intro, I am from India and currently working in Malaysia. I have been contemplating a hair transplant, but the surgery, medicine (the effects or side effects) stopped me from proceeding. I have equally gone worrying about progressive baldness after a transplant, which might end up looking weirder in later years. In the past few months I have tried some medications. I went to a famous skincare doctor in Malaysia - Dr. Ranjit. "Ranjit Skin Specialist Laser & Hair Clinic". He gave me two medicines, and I could admit it showed some improvement, but I started getting a bit worried about his medicines because he never really tell me what the actual medicine is. He only gave a slip that mentioned the ingredients. I have no idea why a doctor have to be secretive about medications. Out of my fear of the unknown medicines, I decided to consult some other doctor who would prescribe me a known medicine, which I can read about online, and understand better about it's side effects, or even the cost for the matter. I spoke with few clinics in Malaysia - Glojas, Inder Kaur, Nathan's Skin and Laser to name a few. I proceeded with Nathan's clinic because Dr. Ruban sounded friendly and he called me on phone to talk about my hair loss once he saw my photos. However when I met him in person he seemed to be too busy and impatient to talk to me properly. Anyhow, that being said right now I am on medications from him (since September 2019): Dutasteride 0.5mg twice a week Minoxidil 2.5mg every day Minoxidil 15% topical You can see my progress after taking medicines from Dr. Ranjit and Dr. Ruban over the past few months. I think at this point I want to go for a hair transplant, after I see the medicines taking effect on my crown. Perhaps a transplant + post transplant medicines could be more effective. I don't see many good hair transplant results from clinics in Malaysia, compared to India. So I was considering to do it from India and I did speak with few clinics: Eugenix MedLinks Medispa Dr. Madhu's Hair Hospital & Research DHT Clinic Thai Hair Clinic Everyone has different price and quote, obviously but most of them told me I need to do within a range of 4000 - 4500 grafts in a single or double sitting surgery. I am almost deciding on Dr. Suneet Soni from Medispa, and the quote from his clinic seems reasonable. I quite liked some of his results on YouTube, though I am a bit skeptical about FUT marks on the head. They call it a "trichopatic" closure or something, but to be honest all clinics have some kind of fancy name for their "technology" of surgery. While I was deciding on Dr. Suneet, I came across Dr. Suradej Pong from THTC. Now that he is in Thailand, and nearer to Malaysia, I may want to consider him as well. I was actually impressed to see that he mentions to keep hair longer to cover the grafts donor and recipient area after the operation. It will be really helpful if someone could suggest me some places near to Malaysia, within Malaysia or around here, or even maybe in Turkey, Korea or so. I would like to look for few more options before deciding. Right now I only have few Indian clinics in my mind. I think I could look for an option nearby in Malaysia. Anyways, that's pretty much about it. I hope someone can help me with some suggestions for my baldness. Thanks guys, in advance. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ UPDATES: 14 Dec 2019: Spoke to Dr. Suneet Soni on phone, and he said that he 4000 or slightly higher grafts can be transplanted (and could consider beard hair too, if required). I asked few doubts I had regarding the scar, progressive hairloss, medications. Dr. Suneet was very polite and kind, and answered to all my questions. If there are surgery scars visible, options in the future are: small amount of FUE transplant, or SMP.
Hi I posted a few weeks ago to ask about recommendations for an FUT doctor in either India, Malaysia or elsewhere in Asia. I'd already found Dr Radha in India, but communications broke down a few months ago due to Dr Radha's own personal circumstances and i tried contacting her again a few days ago but an auto reply says she's uncontactable until August so it looks like those problems are still there and i'm back to square one. I understand in India the cost should be $1/graft and in Malaysia can be $1.5/graft, and these prices are my limits. I live in Vietnam so i'm looking for somewhere easy to travel to from there. Some people previously recommended Thai doctors but the prices are too high for me there. Thanks in advance for any recomendations
Hi Everyone I'm 38 years old, from the UK, but currently living in Vietnam. I had my first and only FUT treatment approx 6 years ago in the UK at Transform in Manchester. I had approx 2500 grafts as I was quite thin on top and around the crown. The treatment worked well and got me to a stage i was happy with. The doctor told me that the remainder of my hair would fall out at some point and i would need a 2nd treatment. Well, i think that time has come! I'd researched in to my 2nd treatment and found Dr Radhi in India, but for some personal reasons of Dr Radhi's, she failed to continue communication so i am back to square one looking for the right place and doctor. So i'm looking for recommendations and any advice on my 2nd treatment. The easiest place for me to travel to would be Malaysia, and on research it seems i'd be looking at about $1.5/graft. It seems India is still cheaper (about $1/graft) and equally good quality. I know from previous searches people have replied to others about not going for the cheapest option etc, but money is an issue and these prices per graft are all i can afford and from already researching Dr Radhi, i was confident of receiving the same if not better quality than i did from Transform in the UK. So if anyone can give any advice on places and doctors in or around Asia, any personal experiences especially, i would appreciate it. I have attached a few photo's of my current hair situation. Thanks in advance...
