Dates set with Dr Lorenzo


Recommended Posts

We'll here I go again into battle:D thought I would start my thread now and will follow up as things progress. I've got an appt with dr Lorenzo this Friday 6th December for a consultation and will be in the chair on the 20th December.

I'm pretty stoked I was able to get in pretty quickly with the doc, but I'm a small fue case.

Plan of attack, is to hit my temple peaks which one is receding and the other is completely shot with a little recession on the one side. I reckon I'm approx 700 grafts tops so for myself fue was the better option. I've also got pretty coarse hair, so fue allows the doc to cherry pick the finer hairs, for the area needing work on.

I will report back after my consult on fri.

Thanks spanker. For me it's the last piece in the jigsaw puzzle. I'd never regret having my strip previously, it was the right choice for me, but fue is probably my best option this time. Hopefully some people might see with this case how strip and fue combined work together for a great outcome and less of the good vs evil as we've come to see on the forums recently .

I won't get any of that started here, but if I was JUST doing temple points, I would definitely go FUE. I have actually thought about it in my future because I have very fine and straight body hair and it would make great temple points. I also have medium caliber hair with enough fine ones that it would be done with scalp hair too.

Awesome, did you get a cancellation date or he just squeezed you in between procedures?

in any case good luck, and your results from your previous HT are quite dramatic btw.

go dense or go home

So how's it going? Any updates?

I'm looking at around the same number or less maybe later this year but for temple corners instead of TP (last HT!)

go dense or go home
