1551 grafts with Luis nader !

Recommended Posts

I say give it until month 10. If your results are still as shown here, then maybe you're looking at a failed transplant. I do doubt it though. Nader has shown great results.

I don’t think the results are bad n it will get better:. But ur density is not there because u r transplanting around 1500 grafts for ur whole midscalp.. usually that’s just enough to just do the hairline n temples dense packed.. if ur results aren’t to ur satisfaction then u can go in for a second round,, I think doctor Nader is conservative in the dense packing because he wants most of ur grafts to survive.. n since he is affordable the second transplant to get more density will really achieve the results u Want n u be satisfied .. he’s a good doctor but ur density u want can’t be achieved with 1500 grafts to zones 1,2, n 3, u need at least 2000-2500 for that ..

I was quoted 1200 to the hairline n 200 to the temple points from other doctors In California that charges $8+ a graft .. just to give u an estimation of what to expect .. best wishes to ya .. keep us updated

I do think it will get better, but the transplanted hair was transplanted into the temples & hairline mainly and he he put some random hairs around the midscalp if you look at my post op pics. I have a feeling I’m gonna need the full 12 months. I could also be needing a second procedure as well .. I guess only time will tell

I think it's coming in good. Everyone's hair growth cycles are different. Some of mine are extremely thin and others came in completely thick. Nader said by month 10 it should thicken up considerably. I've seen timelines where guys are still seeing growth after 14 months. Are you still taking biotin, fenasteride, and minoxidil?

Yea I spoke to Dr Nader and he said it’s till early and I should be satisfied by the time I reach 10 months that it’s still gonna thicken up considerably. So I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

 

I take vitamins only that have biotin msm and other things to help hair get thicker and stronger. Look a couple pages back and you can see what I take. I uploaded a picture of it. I don’t take fin or min.

Redness is still present sometimes more than other times idk why. But overall not bad. I usually leave the house with my hair combed forward and I have no problem at all. Hopefully when it gets denser I can do a combover and eventually grow my hair out and comb it back.

 

It has deff gotten denser..if this continues month by month I think I will be satisfied.

Lemme know what you guys think ?

I’m not that thrilled with the results, density is not where I thought it would be at this stage. On another note I do see a lot of fine hair that has to mature and a couple of new hairs poking through.

 

Keep in mind these pictures were takin in harsh over head lighting and with me combing my hair back to expose the areas.

 

I took pictures before showering so my hair was oily, and pictures after I showered (wet). I will also show how my hair is dried after I showered because it does look different than the ones I took before showering.

 

Let me know what you guys think ? Do I still have a shot of some nice thickness still coming ?

 

I see what you are talking about. At five months post-op, my results were three times as dense as this. I would go back and demand a fix.

No, you let it grow in for the full year and see if it improves which it already has started to do. People grow at different speeds. Yeah it sucks when you're a slow grower but that's how it goes sometimes.

Ur New hair is growing .. it’s lookin not too bad .. but if u expecting it to be denser n thick , u should of gotten more grafts .. 1500 grafts would be a dense packed hairline .. u had 1500 grafts to cover almost ur whole midline .. I think ur results will be satisfactory , but a second surgery with same amount of grafts would make it a lot denser n to ur satsifactory.. I like doctor Nader .. he did good work on u. But more grafts would of been better ..

Arminius - I think it’s too early for that. Some people get great results in the first 6 months and others takes alittle longer. It’s not like I have a horrible outcome. It’s all there just not as thick as I hoped at this point. But to honest when examined closely I can see a lot of white hairs so I have faith in the next couple of months it will be thicker and if that’s the case I will be thrilled I just want a little more density and redness to go down.

 

widowspeak- yea I agree. I’m going to give it some more time, I am seeing things change.

 

Legend - I think doctor Nader did a good job on me and I think I will be satisfied by 10 months. I am seeing changes in density since 6 months. My hair loss was only temples/hairline. He randomly placed grafts around the whole top but I was not lossing hairs in my mid. Worse case Senario I’ll go for a second to address a couple areas. A lot can change tho let’s see

Yeah I think u will be satisfied doctor Nader would be my choice surgeon if I ever need to do a second transplant. Right now I already booked with doctor diep to do my hairline n it’s going to cost me $16,000 for 2000 grafts just to the hairline .. costing me an arm n a leg :( but I just can’t stand my hair like this anymore. So biting the bullet n getting it done

It’s $8 a graft for FUE .

$4.50 a graft for FUT ..

That’s about the average price in California.

I was very close to going to Nader instead , cuz I know he does quality work n u can’t beat $2.5 a graft ..

But since Diep is only a 2 hour drive from me , n he’s a hairline specialist .. i decided he’s the best option for me ..

What’s up legend I think it has gotten slightly denser. I make 8 months exactly today. I didn’t have time to update with pictures today but I will tomorrow. I actually noticed today when I was looking at my hair I still have a lot of white fine hairs that are just as long as my hair but aren’t making any cosmetic diff. Yet so I’m guessing I still have to wait for those hairs to thicken up. Once the thinner hairs thicken up I’m sure I’ll be happy .

 

I’m gonna see if I can get a picture of those hairs 2.
