Dr Pathomvanich November 2014 4300 FUT

Hello gentlemen,

 

I'm in my 30s from the English speaking world. My first post to this site was 6 years ago, since then I've used this site extensively for research on hair loss options, whether they be transplants or medication, etc. I have a lot to thank for this site! Anyhow, after a lot of research I ended up with two options for doctors in Thailand. So, while living in Thailand,I went and had 4300 grafts done with Dr Path in Bangkok.

 

I don't have the breakdown on follicle counts,

 

Diffuse patterned hair-loss.

Strategy was to replace loss at front right side with highest density, decreasing density to left hairline, and crown, in-between existing hair.

Didn't suffer much shock loss, although this was a possibility going with this strategy.

 

 

Photos: Pre-op (long) and pre-op buzzed and about 5 days post-op. I apologise for the orientation problems. I wasn't sure how to fix that.

Post op scar at around 1 and 2 months.

I suffered some shock loss from below the donor area, which took about 2 months to grow back, Profile shot of the scar shows in that awkward phase were the hair isn't quite long enough to disguise it, and shock loss accentuates.

 

The growth in the crown and hairline so far is just my existing hair, nothing new so to speak, just yet. But I am seeing thickening in the hairline already. Will update post as time goes along ;)

Congratulations on the procedure. That is a solid number of grafts that should serve you well , esp since the back of your crown is still somewhat intact with decent native hair density. Would look forward to seeing your progress. Are you taking any meds ?

FUT #1, ~ 1600 grafts hairline (Ron Shapiro 2004)

Thanks Fortune, after having the procedure the future started to feels a lot more promising with regards to my emotional outlook and confidence.

 

I've seen quite a lot of growth in my hairline within the last month, but it's quite hard to see in photos, so I wanted to wait longer till it's more visible before I post another update.

 

As for my medication. I've been on Finasteride for the last 5 years.

I was advised that generics may not have the same efficacy by Dr Path, so I've recently switched from a generic to MSD Proscar which is split into 1mg and taken daily.

 

I've avoided taking Minoxidil as I have too many negative side-effects for it to be worth my while.

Very neat. How does the scar look?

 

I'm a single guy, so I don't have a significant other to take the photo for me. But with that said, I have tried to find it and it's invisible to my eye.

You have(or had lol)a similar hair loss pattern as me.except my left side had recceded where as yours was the right.

 

Your result so far at the month youre at is more then good imo. The next six months are just going to be a brucie bonus. Where it will only get thicker which will give the full look feel to it.

 

Good luck on the rest if your journey buddy.

8 year update. 

I have experienced some loss over the years, but it's been pretty slow and steady. 

Currently cut short, so coverage looks less.

Will be looking at another surgery soon to add more density.
