Because after 7 years, it is more likely it has more to do with your hair not your surgery,. And that is the job of dermatologist.
A surgeon job is to do the surgery, a dermatologist job is to take care of your hair and see all the medical factors.
Sure, there is a lot of common areas in their work (in fact, many of the FUE only surgeons are actually dermatologists) and there is a good chance that many clinic has a dermatologist in its team, but I won't take the risk and will ask a specialist immediately
Not sure how it is hassle to ask a specialist and provide him with your history, but whatever suits you
Thank you for the encouragement, as this makes me feel a lot better? Would you say based on the pictures I provided (including the more recent ones I put in my most recent post) that I am safe for now not to do anything drastic like take Propecia or Rogaine at this point? It doesn't don't know if my hair had gotten worse or not in the past year, as the one picture I have on my hairline is only on my right side and is a bit blurry and at a weird angle. I don't remember the temples looking as thin as they do now, but I don't really trust my memory for that.
That said, two dermatologists did tell me I had nothing to worry about for now, so I should probably just trust that. I am actually going back to see the one that did the biopsy in two weeks for a three month followup to see if the telogen effluvium they diagnosed me with has cleared up. I plan to ask them to compare the pictures they took back then with my crown and my hairline to see if they notice any change, as well as inquire about doing a miniaturization study.at some point (since another fear of mine is that there is miniaturization that I'm not noticing due to having always had very thick hair)
Dr rahal tops my list and I'm also a fan of Dr hasson
I would like to know how many surgeries were performed at the day of this patients surgery , who did the incisions and who planted the grafts and which team was involved.
