The Post: After Hair Transplants, many doctors ignore patients’ questions – why? was followed on Reddit where it was posted initially with the following responses. I think that my point was understood. Comment 1: Yes I totally agree. I had a good transplant so I am ok and don’t had much to complain about (post […]
You have a significant infection. If I were to see you, I would culture the wounds, drain all of the pustules and put you on an antibiotic immediately, adjusting it based upon the culture report and your response to it. I would also have you use warm wet compresses on it a few times a […]
If you have completely healed, you can have Scalp Micropigmentation to address this problem, see here: https://scalpmicropigmentation.com/scar-covering/. Your problem should be a warning to many men to have their FUE pushed high especially when non-trained people are doing it and don’t understand the math of supply and demand for donor hair nor the necessity to […]
Experience shows that early hair loss responds better to finasteride than people who have waited for years before starting it.
At the age of 18, it is not advisable to do anything surgical (like a hair transplant) to address the uneven hairline. You will not know if you are balding until you are at least 26 years old.
Almost every day I get emails (because of my internet presence) from patients who had surgery and find their doctors don’t seem to answer their concerns and questions. Many of these men see an abrupt change in the doctor when compared to before their surgery. I guess it is like being sold a used car […]
Just want to preface this by saying that I’m all for fighting hair loss in any way you want if it’s what you wanna do. I’m genuinely not here trying to sway anyone one way or the other. That’s why I’m not even gonna mention what I’m doing/not doing for my hair loss. Just wanted […]
People say that Finasteride loses its effectiveness. Is this actually true, since DHT levels are similar till 40? I don’t see the logic of why it would lose its effectiveness. Studies comparing two groups (1) people who stay on finasteride vs (2) those that do not take it or stop it show that those on […]
How long does it take for Minoxidil Hypertrichosis to disappear when a person stops the minoxidil? The new hairs (the hypertrichosis hairs possibly on the face) are always dependent upon the minoxidil, so when it is stopped the hairs fall out because they need the minoxidil to stay and thrive.
I am a female who has been using minoxidil for 1 month. I have a lot of minituarized hairs and I’d like to know how Minoxidil would work on these short hairs. Will Minoxidil work by pushing out these minituarized hairs and allowing new and stronger hairs to come out? OR Will Minoxidil allow these […]
I have a lot of neck hair, can I use it for a hair transplant? A hair transplant at this stage and at your age may bring you up to a full head of hair providing that you stay on the drug. Stick to the donor area if you have a hair transplant and do […]
I was really worried about it, so went to quite a famous derm, who told me I had no miniaturization(using the proper equipment, I assume, not just by eye like another derm did). Cut to now, my scalp is beginning to show even more, and the itching continues. Should I hop on fin + min? […]
I know this question might be silly, but I’m a little concerned. Some nights I find myself waking up from my sleep while itching my scalp really hard, like nails digging in a little in my scalp. Nothing too intense of course, but just enough to have some flakes peeling off. I’m kind of freaking […]
