Just had my third surgery with Dr. Konior on Monday, March 9.  My first two go arounds were FUT (in 2009 and 2010) but his time I did FUE.  Really had no choice because my scalp is tight after the two

Coming along well!  I'm at 4.5 months out now and I'm already really pleased.  I can go out in the wind now and have my hair blow around and its just fine.  That's fun.  I assume I still have a fair a

Donor area totally recovered.  Konior is a magician.  He does most of the surgery himself and he’s a perfectionist.  Recovery was crazy fast and easy.

If you look at where I started and where I am now, it's a pretty crazy transformation.  When I go through old pics or video of myself from 15 years ago, it reminds me of really how much Dr. Konior did for me.  I was really bald and would be completely so today had I done nothing.  I was lucky to find him when he wasn't quite as known as he is now (he was one of the closest docs to me who was recommended on this forum).  I almost got suckered in by docs who would have really messed me up so it really does pay to do your research, take your time, and make a good decision.  I paid way more than I ever thought I would or could but I did it over 12 years and made a few sacrifices along the way.  I don't regret a thing.  I do feel extremely fortunate though because HTs are definitely a luxury.  I also am happy in that I never took propecia or used minixidil outside of the four months after each surgery (to encourage early growth).  Those choices are not the right ones for everyone for many valid reasons but they have been for me.

Right now I'm deciding between diep and hw but I do hear about konior a lot and know he does the whole surgery

Not if that’s the result after 3 ht.

Maximillian, you seem to be having a hard time understanding here.  The pics you chose were 1 month after having my head shaved for my third surgery.  That shouldn't be too  difficult to grasp.  Here's where I am four months out with the real growth just starting.  Do you have any questions?

Ok so after 2 ht and a 3rd 1 month old. 
bald to balding 

 

lotta money.  For that result. And if that dr is the best then ht has a long way to go

You need to do some research, starting off with supply and demand.

Before he was bald he probably had 50,000+ hairs that were lost.  1 large hair transplant might provide 7500 hairs in one sitting, the second 5,000 and a 3rd, lets say 2,500.  That's 15,000 hairs trying to replace over 3 times as many...

..So they have to be strategically placed and styled to give the best cosmetic effect.  Thin areas have to be accepted as you cannot recreate good coverage everywhere.

..and hair transplants take at least 12 months to grow as hair is shocked out about 2 weeks after surgery.

Ok, this is probably overdue.  Been more busier than I thought I would be.  The attached pics are my situation before my last surgery with Dr. Konoir in March 2020.  Approximately 1,600 FUE to address crown and shore up my part areas.  Two pics I took the day before surgery and two pics from day of surgery in Dr. Konior's office.

So after 2 ht your hair still looks like this? This is not something I would call a full head of hair? So you paid 25 k or more to go from bald to balding? Point is, if this is the result, ht are a long way off from being worth it

Your being way to harsh here, nobody is getting their original hair back thats not possible.

As we all come to understand it’s is mostly a “Illusion of hair” all of us have various results depending on how severe our loss and who we choose.

Please don’t try and make the OP feel bad though, hes headed for a even better result than he has already in a few months time.

Looking good mate! More or less have complete coverage at 4.5 months with more density to come anyone who understands the limitations of a ht would consider that a success.

Yeah, thanks!  Its all good.  Maxmillian is either a troll or just completely clueless.  I have essentially a full head of hair and the illusion of good density.  Of course, I don't have my original density.  That wouldn't be possible.  Still have months of growth ahead but if it all stopped right now, I'm extremely happy, especially considering where I started many years back.
