I got a haircut after 8 months of hair transplant. My crown / vertex looked really thin after the cut. It was 2 months ago. Now I am waiting for my hair to grow up again, but confused on how to calculate my days / months about transplant. Should I say I am at 10 months or 2 months? Does hair grow faster after haircut?
I am 31 years old and soon going to be 32 in the next few months, have been losing hair for the past 5 years. I have tried using both Minoxidil and Finpecia for about a year together and then stopped about 6 months back, as I just couldn't see myself doing it any further for the rest of my life. I'm not sure if it did stop my hair loss or helped regrow some, as there was nothing noticeable to my eye.
I've been following this forum for about 2 years as a silent spectator while deciding if I really needed a hair transplant (Parents being against it) or should I wait further or look for an alternate solution (Hair System?). I've really been stressed for the past few years due to the hair loss and it did impact my self confidence, with some individuals (friends/colleagues) making jokes in public about the balding spot didn't help either. Being unmarried and balding is not making it easier for me.
The forum helped me reading through all the patient's reviews and their journeys. I then decided I do need a HT, so it finally came down between Dr Bhatti and Dr Lorenzo, but considering the cost (wasn't that important factor) and Chandigarh also being my home town, I opted for Dr Bhatti and fixed my appointment with him over email for the next month.
After discussing with Dr Bhatti over the email, he mentioned I'm Norwood 3V and that I would need 1500 grafts for the front, 1000 grafts to cover my crown. My hair other than the balding spot is reasonably thick, I have attached the pictures to give a fair idea.
Need everyones honest view on the frontal hairline, should I lower it further or continue with the same? Do you think 1000 grafts will be enough for the crown?
How much density should I be aiming for at the front and the crown while making sure I do not waste my donor area (as I may at some time in future need it again, I hope not - but still)
Should I consider transplanting my chest hair instead for the crown, instead of wasting the donor area at the back? If yes, will it look unnatural considering the hair surrounding it is thick and original hair (instead of the chest hair)?
I will of course be discussing this with Dr Bhatti in person (didn't feel like bombarding him with so many questions over email), but I will be in a better situation if I have everyones view and I got almost a month to ponder over it.
Would love everyones view
PS: I'm suffering from Hypothyroidism (under control via pills).
This 32-year-old male had been on Propecia (finasteride 1mg) therapy for over a year and hadn't seen the improvement of crown coverage that he desired. He then underwent a 2228-micrograft FUT procedure with Dr. Carlos Wesley in NYC.
The patient can be seen both before and one year following his hair restoration surgery to his crown. During the procedure the patient's grafts were stored in a mixture of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and ACell.
This 49-year-old gentleman wanted to finally cover the balding crown that had been bothering him for many years. A 2284-graft session by Dr. Wesley allowed for coverage over this large surface area. ACell and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) were used as storage media. The patient returned 10 months after his follicular unit transplantation procedure.

ok guys i have an update ...
first of all i am soooooo confused ........... no one online or a doctor that have a sure answer for this
but today i have learned something...
-masterbathing more than 2-3 times / week can increase the DHT level which covers the root of my hair and after doing that for years it will cause my hair to fall out...
i usually masterbate 2-5 times/day !! ....and i have started doing that when i were 9-10....... maybe that is why !!
-i have realized that only my dad is bald ... all my grandparents have hair all over there head ..... that means its not genetic i guess
-also i have realized some of the drugs out there named " proporsia " or something like that .. is very effective but one of its side effect is to lose my erection completely . losing interest in the opposite sex , shrinking the balls ... and somethings people dont want to say it because its too embarrassing ............ ( maybe they will have feelings for guys or something .. ewww )
-so now .. the question is how to decrease the DHT level from scalp only............
- how to increase the thickness of my hair because it looks a lot thinner right now !
*also know that .. i am not so rich .. i live in egypt and we earn around 150$/month here ... there is always a cheap medicine for every expensive one .. so tell me the name of the drug/formula *
please answer me fast
