Thanks for your quick answer! I know two people that have used that clinic and are very happy with the results; and that's given me done reassurance.
They offer traditional FUE and also DHI so I picked DHI because of the perceived benefits.
In terms of the PRP, the clinic will be doing it on the day of the procedure. However, I was wondering if it is advised to get additional PRP sessions before / after. The clinic said it wasn't necessary but I thought I'd ask in this forum I'd anyone find it helpful :)
Higher yield of graft survival, easier to obtain more grafts per session Also consider with a good Micro-pigmentation job the scar is almost unnoticeable. Its actually a better option just people don't want to have their heads cut open IMO lol
Based on the photo it seems you have a hairline in the middle of the forehead, common for someone young. Eventually this will mature and recede. Do ask your family members about history of hair loss and keep a log. Take photos and put them away. If you see things continuing in the next few years, go to a dermatologist or a hair transplant surgeon. These consultations are typically free and they can be a good source of information. Depending on the outcome you can then decide if some type of medical therapy is appropriate. Most doctors think that age 18 is OK to start using something. Always consult with the doctor. Lastly, you have very dark hair and light scalp. The contrast is always going to make things seem worse than what they truly are. Like most said, don't freak out. The stress, while not the culprit, can also attribute to faster loss. Do your research and stay informed.
Most men, if not all, look better with hair. There are thousands of photos out there of before and after and, the universal thought is that men without hair look older. With millions and millions of people in this earth, there is a bit for everyone. Some women do like older men, But, the majority, don't.
Have you noticed how people make fun of people when something is just not right? How about wearing glasses. Atypical? Perhaps. "Hey four eyes!" Have you heard that before? How about a receding hairline in high school. Compare that to the jocks that have full sets of hair and are the most popular on campus. People notice and they'll always will.
Framing of the face is what helps. That's why mot young guys that go in for consultation are always freaking out. They are losing their youth. The more the hairline recedes, the older they appear to be.
Looks are everything for some people. I do agree there are many good people out there that look good regardless of their handicap. But the MAJORITY will always be self aware when you start comparing. Why do you think commercials most of the time tend to include good looking people/models? Have you ever seen a Loreal commercial with an ugly person?
