Results of 2000 FUT w Dr. Scott Alexander from April 1st 2015

Recommended Posts

Hang in there man, do not let this take you down, the way I see it you have a partner and you have a good beard so you don't need to be out there searching for females or anything, worst case scenario is you grow the beard out, get some scalp micropigmentation and shave your head to look like you have that short haired strong beard look. Get the micropigmentation to help disguise the HT scar and rock out bro. Don't let the vanity shit destroy your life... be strong.

Your results look uniform.  I think you are right, you may have gone on to lose more native hair.  Had it not been for the transplants, you would be in worse shape. Now, the question becomes, is the native hair still there?  Why not go on a medical regimen, (Propecia, Rogaine, PRP, Laser), and do it for a good year.  Take good photos and see what happens.  Worse case scenario, you lose a year. Bet to say you may return to have as close a density as to what 

 

 

 

Question for you, your names is LaserCap are you associated or affiliated with marketing, sales, or clinical representation of any type of Laser Cap hair solution, products, promotion,  and/or business? Hahahah 

I agree I may try the lasercap it's just expensive and I'd rather try and save for another Transplant If this is going to be my unfortunate disappointing outcome. 

 

I was using all of the about you listed besides the lasercap and PRP (which I've been researching). Until Spex stated to stop rolgain and nioxin bc they are notorious for shedding.

I really do appreciate you advice and support buddy. 😃

To be totally honest I don't think you can necessarily conclude these are transplanted hairs that have shredded. It looks like the transplanted hairs may have remained while the native hairs have continued to recede, and that is the most obvious explanation for what has happened here. It could also be the result of continued recession and also the natural growth/shed cycle of the transplanted hair.

As in regards to Native hair receding further back, it is not and I can assure you this, as I am the one looking at my own head. However, let's just assume the native hair has received further back......the transplanted hair is still thinning(alot) So, if what you are proposing is in fact the truth, wouldn't there be the "DHT resistant" transplanted hair on my frontal hair line(where transplant was done) followed by a gap (or balding area) then leading back to the native hair on the crown?

P.S. its shedding not shredding

If your opinion that anything is "clearly" represented by a few low resolution photos taken from distances far too back to discern anything meaningful - then the credibility of your opinion seems suspect. The only thing that is "clear" here is that the photos are ambiguous. Could it be transplanted hair shedding? Maybe. Is it the likely cause of the thinning? No.

The reasons why it is not likely the cause:

1) The scientific literature has established fairly confidently that hairs transplanted when pulled from the safe zone typically do not miniaturize in people with MPB.

2) His photos indicate that the hair pulled was well within the safe zone.

3) The pattern of thinning here is relatively uniform. If this was a case of "some" of his transplanted hairs being outside the safe zone, then we might expect that the thinning pattern to be less uniform, unless you want to take the hypothesis that "all" of his transplanted hair were susceptible to MPB.

4) The more thin areas of his scalp are the exact areas that appeared to be receding prior to the transplant.

What I see......is that clearly from the pictures I posted the "transplanted hair" that I'm sure you are well aware is RESISTANT to DHT, has thinned significantly from the 5 month post opp pictures. In addition, as I'm sure once again you are well aware, it takes 12-24 months for the full results. So wouldn't it be safe to say... at 5 months the results are clearly a success? So.......which leads me back to my original question.....after 4 plus year why has PERMINATE TRANSPLANTED HAIR 50% or more thinned out?

Let's focus on my question and a possible solution. Not bringing up opinions on the matter that may or may not be of any relevance. 

Hair transplant = success - 4 Years later = thinning

Also, I've seen your pictures you posted of YOUR (FUEBLOND1985) transplant results....its funny we must have used the same "low resolution" camera from the same distances....how funny!

Welp.....you seem to be adding your two sense quite a bit and also going in a circle. I want to know why infact the TRANSPLANTED HAIR has thinned from the success pictures? IT is CLEAR it HAS.....forget about your "hypothesis" Dr. FUEBLONDE just a for a second, k?

Let's say my whole damn head went bald due to significat progression in alopecia, after the transplant. By the scientific studies you have "clearly" referenced then the "my hypothesis" would be that I should have my transplant DHT resistant hair from the FUT on my frontal hairline that was recreated...... and then be bald EVERWHERE else. (Dr. I didn't catch your name)

Example picture attached doc for your research Dr. FUEBLONDE.

While I believe the clinical findings in general you are referencing to, to indeed be true. (which is why I got a damn FUT in the first place and bought into the surgery) , I'm just curious can you reference a study and site your sources? Instead of trying to overcompensate to sound educated and like you know what you are talking about.

Your facts are something that ANYONE who has undergone a FUE or FUT should already know?...Go ahead bud, look one up....and put your expert opinion and reasoning below.  Thanks

The bizarre way in which you have responded to proposed alternative hypothesis to what you are experiencing would seem to indicate to me that you are not able to credibly assess your own situation and you are evaluating your hair based on some type of emotionally impulsive reaction to your continued hair thinning rather than an objective evaluation of exactly what is happening to your hair.

You have posted pictures. The quality of those photos are not good and any conclusions drawn by US based on only those photos is highly speculative. Your OWN doctor told you that you will continue to need future transplants from continued recession, and told you he doesn't think your transplanted hair is disappearing by way DHT miniaturization. Your posting on this thread trying to get lay people on the internet to agree with your own assessment as opposed to your doctors, with some grainy photos with unreliable hair styling as your evidence, and when people dispute, your retort is that only you can see what is going on, and your conclusion is definitely the correct one, and any alternative theory is clearly impossible.

If this is your position, I am not sure exactly why are you are posting at all since you have made up your mind already about what is happening. No one is saying that your hypothesis is absolutely wrong - I am saying that jumping to the most unlikely conclusion (that your transplanted hair is falling by way of DHT) is pretty counterproductive when you could be using other approaches to solve the problem rather than complain about a non-existent one.

Objective evaluation of what is exactly happening huh? Because your option is the answer and you know what's going on huh? Again, what are your credentials? You are a dude that got a hair transplant just like myself, making an ultimate assumption on pictures from "low resolution grainy pictures". Yes, Im here asking for help and advice. While your option is valued and appreciated, let's agree to disagree on this one. I gave a clear explanation of why I believe the hair to be thinning in the transplanted area and explained it has not thinned even remotely close to what your explanation would show. 

 

And my reaction was to your rude ass response to a gentleman who posted a comment on this thread. 

Thanks your advice and like I said let's agree to disagree on this one and move on. God bless 😃

Lasercap I send you a person message regarding advice for the laser cap or advice on selecting one. That's for all your help and support thus far.

havent seen anything like this. maybe once or twice but....

 

hang in there bro.. bad situations are 80% how we react to them and 20% the actual situation. Think of the positives.. You will get through this. We're all on this forum cause we know how it feels to lose hair. I would like to see some pictures, from where ever you can (fb, IG, etc..) after the 1 year mark and as periodically as you can up until now. That would help a lot.

 

Good luck
