I will assume that such a density will produce less than 100% growth. As the first doctor to perform dense packing (1994), I think that this is a reasonable comment. Also, with such a high density, the area covered will be limited so if this person is very bald, then it is possible that there […]
Thanks for the further performance pointers! Is (1) primarily avoided by trimming off as much of the skins as possible (without damaging the follicles) and (2) by inserting them so that the hairs grow out closer to perpendicular to the scalp (rather than tangential). I speculate there is a lot of room for automation during […]
My doctor is a woman and I’m 18 years old. If i ever experience sides from finasteride, i’ll feel weird to ask my doctor about it. Does it matter about what gender doctor is? I just feel more comfortable in talking to a guy about sides if they ever show up. Women doctors are just […]
I recently started taking finasteride(3 weeks ago) and put a post up about my fears of gynecomastia. I can confidently say thats not happening to me as my paranoia thought ( after doing some blood tests and consulting my doc). I was extremely paranoid for that too. Luckily its pretty easy to prove wrong. However, […]
These are elevated grafts (photo on the left). The surgeon that put them in used a Choi or Lyon Implanter and left the upper part of the graft sticking out. This is not the way I do it for many reasons including: 1- You have to wear a hat for weeks after the surgery and […]
Jason Alexander has made a fortune with his ‘look’ and his talent. Clearly his balding was not a problem for him in the days when the TV show was popular. It has.. from tressless
What you have are not scabs but necrosis of the skin in the recipient area. This means that these black areas have skin that has died as a result of your hair transplant. You need so see your surgeon as this will require wound care and eventually you will be left with a scar in that […]
This treatment is being promoted in Germany and in Europe called AC-Therapy. It is supposed to decrease the muscle tension of the scalp which in turn decreases circulation to the scalp. Supposedly, with less circulation there is less oxygen and nutrition and this is therefore claimed as the cause for patterned hair loss in men. […]
I’m feeling very nervous. 99% of Dutasteride users here have mentioned that Dut cause Gynecomastia in men. Thanking you in advance I personally very rarely have prescribed Dutasteride, so I can’t comment on this from personal experience.
The three most common causes of graft failures includes (1) exposure to air for more than 15 seconds when placing the grafts or when preparing the grafts, (2) rough handling of the grafts during placement, (3) a recipient site that is too tight. These problems most frequently arise when the surgical team is sloppy, inexperience, poorly […]
I read a lot in forums that if loses its effectiveness after 10 years. I’ve been on the drug since I was 19 at the first signs of miniaturizing. I may have confused the miniaturizing with a mature hairline. I’ve now been on the drug for 6 years and I’ve kept exactly everything I ever […]
Pictures are worth 1000 words. Finasteride produced nice results in a relatively short time; however, I might question if the photograph is really telling the story as the results could be hair length alone.
I am surprised at this report, but considering that it is from a prestigious journal, the Journal of Plastic Surgery, the report seems to have merit. I would like to see a larger group for better statistical analysis https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4740347/
I always tell my patients that the risk of sexual dysfunction or loss of libido was between 2-4% but this article suggests that these side effects were not seen in their study of over 600 men from all age groups. This suggests a strong psychological impact that could be the cause of the sexual complaints […]
This article shows the Effect of Platelet-Rich Plasma in Hair Regrowth: A Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial. This is an impressive study and it will make me rethink my approach to PRP. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4622412/
