Nadimi vs H&W vs Rahal - Consults

Recommended Posts

Hmmmm...so what’s the $$$$ difference in FUT vs FUE?? I know that I’ve ALWAYS heard Dr Rahal has way better FUT results. I have zero doubt about the mans skills ( ill be getting my second one from him sometime very soon)!!!

Just wondering about price. Dr Rahal is great. You made a great decision. !!!

 

I don't recall exactly, 3-4k maybe for my situation. Just ask them they'll tell you the standard pricing.

Hey guys.  My FUE surgery will be this Friday, just need some last minute advice.  I would really like your opinion as to whether or not to completely shave my head.  I would like to avoid this if at all possible but would not want to sacrifice quality on the end result.

Can I get your input on pros and cons and reasoning please?

Thanks

It’s less time consuming for the surgeon, also shaving your head reduces the chance of shock loss, because the surgeon can see where he’s placing the incisions better. I’m not saying some surgeons can’t do this, but it’s certainly easier for the surgeon.

Shave it......as mentioned, it's easier for the surgeon. You already are going to a great surgeon....you should be removing any variables/obstacles that can cause anything but the expected/great result.

Hi guys.  So its done, went with the full shave.  Dr. Rahal and team were excellent, I felt well taken care of during the entire experience, and boy what an experience.  Some swelling as expected in the face, most intrusive part of post-op is the sleeping at 45 degrees and the weird hats but definitely not a big deal for a week or two.  Missing the gym the most.  I requested 4-6 weeks to work from home so by the time I get back I should mostly look the way I did when they last saw me, I've been pretty open with this anyway.

Sorry I didn't get to update during Day 0 and 1 but here are some Pre-op & Day 2 pics.  Lighting is a bit weird/yellow in the bathroom so take that into consideration.  2800 FUE grafts on the nose, conservative hairline restoration only.. crown later sometime down the road maybe.  Doesn't seem like there's going to be any noticeable scarring at all and I plan to buzz the back and sides to a 2 guard.  Pretty pleased so far just tempering my expectations and joy for when I actually see results!

Does someone need to move this thread into a different section?

Rahal strip and then the next session would be FUE and could put FUE in donor scar to make it virtually invisible. I just feel you’re gonna get way more bang for your buck with FUT first.

I am wondering why you say more bang for the buck with FUT, thanks!

Some people say less shock loss, more density, saves donor hair, and is way cheaper.  I'm happy so far with my FUE decision.

It's cheaper so you literally get more grafts for a lower price, hence more bang for your buck.

So just over a month now, not much to report but thought I'd give an update.  Donor area a little sore still but seems to be healing ok.  Recipient area still red and still has a bunch of transplanted hair left, haven't gone back to work yet.  Sorry for the low quality pic.

Three months in... a bunch of the transplanted hair did not fall out and grew instead.  Some tiny hairs starting to poke out (hard to tell from the pics), nothing to get excited about yet.  Sorry I suck as a photographer.

Are you on finasteride?

I'd love to get procedure done with Dr. Rahal. The only thing is (as with HT in general), finasteride gives me bad side effect.

I felt extremely dizzy for three days after taking it (1.25 mg) and that was enough to convince me to stay away from it.

Just wondering if you were on med.

Nope just Rogaine.  No intention of taking other medicine.

You had two days of surgery with Dr. Rahal?

Nope just one session for hairline restoration.  Maybe crown down the line..
