Dr. Rahal,

 

That's surely another stellar result. The hairline looks great. Thanks for sharing.

 

Best wishes,

I had the pleasure of meeting the patient in person. Great guy. Great story. Great result.

 

@Gasthoerer

What's making your decision difficult? I've been there myself. In the end, I went for FUE. But my first was strip.

Yes, amazing result. Looks like a natural full head of hair.

Sorry, I didn't share my story here (I did before in a domestic Forum), but you can see that I was in a quite interesting discussion with Feller and Bloxham about this too.

Short summary (I do not want to hijack this thread):

- I am a 38 old complicated diffuse thinner (DPA) who requires between 2500 – 3000 grafts (hairline and crown)

- Currently I slowed/stopped the loss with FIN but MINOX did not give me any regrowth

- My Donor is above average (around 10 000 confirmed by 3 clinics and calculated myself with the excel tool of Lorenzo/Erdogan)

- But my hairloss is following the exact similar pattern as my fathers, which means it will probably never stop thinning (even though I am on FIN and my father is not)

- My skin tends a little to keloid scars which might affect both FUE and FUT

- Feriduni (even after asking for strip in a 2nd meeting) and Bisanga both recommended FUE

Sounds like FUE should by my choice, but:

- But most of the very great results I have seen were FUT (a lot from Rahal though)

- And I need a great result as my donor is very (!) dense and a normal result will still look thin in comparison especially as I have a low hairline

Current decision:

- I will make a very small FUE (<500 grafts for a conservative hairline approach) which cost a boatload of money in a great clinic to see if I am a good FUE candidate

- If I am not a good candidate (e. g. grafts are difficult to extract) the I go for FUT and/or maybe I get the balls to jump on DUT (some regrowth or better thickening of existing hair and I may not need any further work in the crown)

Hey Gasthoerer,

 

That's a big one buddy. I would rule out strip 100%. A shitty scar is tough to deal with - and even harder to fix.

 

For results... meet patients in person. Best advice I can give. I know Rahal is launching their new site soon... with 100's of amazing FUE results. But again, meet patients in person.

 

Question... have you thought about smp? Rahal's doing "3DSMP" now. And it's awesome. You can't tell - looks like real hair. So you can shave your head. If it's a look you're after.

Yes, you are right. I am also scared of Strip because of that. Even though I belive FUT gives

 

SMP is unfortunately no option for me. I have a terrible head shape and could not even buzz down when younger. SMP might be a nice add on for some, but my major issue is not density but volume (height) which is very different distributed.

 

Have opened my own thread, do not hijack this one.
