It’s impossible to provide good advice without any photos, generally when hairloss is extensive it’s rec to “strip” out first before going through FUE. But can’t really say anything on your personal situation without pictures.
After 3 years of wait(worst decision) and 2 years of Rogaine(no guts to take propecia another worst decision) I decided to get my 1st HT done. I have advanced hair loss in the crown area and minimal hair loss in the frontal region. I sent photos to around 10+ doctors (Thanks to this forum as I am able to get list of good doctors) and most of them suggested to go for 2500-3000 grafts 1st and then 1000-1500 grafts later after 12 months for a FUE procedure. 1 of the top doctor suggested to go with 2000 grafts FUT 1st and 1500 grafts FUE after 12 months for maximum coverage and a decent hairline in the front. He suggested I should not go with aggressive hairline because of my Donor area. So I am in a dilemma now whether combination of FUT & FUE over a 12 months is the best scenario or should I go with FUE all the way? I would ideally wanna go to Europe but travel is a big no for me so I restricted myself to North America with top 5 doctors in my list are Dr Konior, Diep, Vories, Shapiro & H&W.
Congrats on your recent hair transplant procedure with an excellent doctor. Dr. Kongkiat Laorwong produces excellent results. I encourage you to take and share some photos of your procedure. When was your procedure? Did you just have surgery or did the results grow in? Let’s hear some more details and see some photos 🙂
I am 27 years old from Toronto, Canada and I just want to share that after months and months of intensive research, I have decided to go with Dr. Cinik in Turkey on August 29th.
I will be posting regular updates of my HT as the weeks and months go by with photos of my progress.
