Hey Guys, 

Finally i did it !!! After 5 years of researching and exploring all non-surgical treatments, I felt confident this time to take the plunge looking to regain my hairline which I lost 10 years ago.¬†Hopefully i won't regret it¬†ūüė¨

Have been on Min, Derma rolling and Multivitamins for almost 15 months. Recently, i added low dose fin/ 1mg on alternative days (3 Months now with no side effects). you can check my below thread for more details.


Why Dr Arika
Do I need to explain ? Look at her real patient results and make up your conclusion! Simply, she answered all my questions, cleared my doubts and assured me the best result. 

Eugenix Team

Well organized, professional and very responsive. They did their best to make me comfortable and meet my expectation even though they were overloaded.

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Eugenix team @Abhinay Singh. It was an amazing experience.

Congratulations again, I'm sure it's going to be great. And decent hair/graft average helps :)! I imagine they split grafts to get enough single hairs at Eugenix?

Excellent work ! More grafts than the original plan of 2200. Love the hairline design. No doubts this will become another excellent Eugenix result ūüôŹ

Thanks bro, yes but still i don't have the exact count. I just took a pic of the white board during the surgery.

Dr. Arika extracted few single grafts from behind my ears at the end of the procedure to soften my hairline.

Thanks a lot, actually i changed the design several times. Initially, it was more aggressive and straight then i asked Dr. Arika to curve it slightly up on the temples so i can save some grafts and use it to thicken up my forelock.

Maybe you can notice the difference in this photo.

Fantastic @HCH! Thanks for sharing the breakdown.

Did they implant into the crown area or just the front?

Also, what nationality are you? Being Caucasian myself, I am keeping a close eye on the non-Indian patient results.

No, I preferred not too touch the crown at this stage for several reasons. I am a Lebanese national living in Dubai.

They have many Caucasian cases and now planning to open a branch in Dubai for international patients.

I followed your advice even though Dr. Arika was confident i can go for a lower hairline. According to her I still have 5000 in the bank.

7th day update:

I had my 1st wash this morning and most of the scabs are out. My recipient is still red with few dark dots along the hairline.

Donor seems to be very good at this point, i didn't expect that.

Thank you all, the waiting game just started. Hope everything will go as planned.

I didn't want to address the crown as there is a high probability it may expand. I am on finasteride now so it's better to wait for another 6 months and assess its efficacy. Also by this time, i will have an idea about my end result so i can plan accordingly.

Dr. Arika suggested 1500 for the crown but i think 2000 would provide a better density.
