Hey Matt,

Have you tried the shorter haircut yet?

Well, yeah sort of as it is shorter now than it was years ago.  Still about 1.5inches on top.  Not sure I would go any lower but maybe one day.

@1978matt how many milligrams of proscar are you taking each time? Are you slicing up the 5mg pill or the 1mg pill to quarter servings? 

5mg into approx. 1.25mg quarters

do you take brand name or generic proscar? I've seen this debated recently in terms of what works better

I was on Proscar but ran out in July.  I was sent a Spanish brand instead: Cinfa Finasterida.

Apart from it being easier to cut than Proscar, there has been no difference.

Hi Guys,

It's all good as seen in the photos below taken today.  One of the benefits of the summer is it is much easier to get well lit photos.

I am still on 1/4 proscar twice a week and if anything I seem not to notice any side effects any more.  I'm thinking to get 500 grafts in the crown and that will be me done...hopefully for ever, or at least not for another 15-20 years!

Looks amazing Matt! Dr. K does amazing work! Looks like you still have an excellent donor area too!

Can I ask: What prompted you to get about 1200 grafs vs doing something like 2500? 

I didn't need that many to reach my goals at that point in time.

Thanks.  I'm glad to have gone FUT first as that has preserved the donor area.

Your hair is looking Great. Congrats, you won!! 

Are you gonna hit the crown?

Oops, I missed it. I see you are thinking of 500 in the crown.

Go do it. Your donor looks great still.
