    I think that people settle into their new hair and become accustomed to it such that they don't feel the need to get others opinions anymore. As opposed to when you first have it done and your in the look at me and tell me it's grown phase.

    I will try and post some pictures soon to update people. I'm currently happy with the results, prob 8.5 / 10. Above what I hoped for really.

    Just thinking back to when it first started to look 'normal' again I do remember, on several occasions, walking past mirrors and thinking is that really me. As my hair transplant was on the front, it changed my appearance quite a lot, you can still tell it's me, but it is quite a difference.

    Your comment (and reent stuff in the news about face transplants) just made me think that others must go through the same thing and maybe they just feel confident again and want to move on.

    Note: I'm not comparing a hair transplant to a face transplant on the same grounds, but it did alter my perception of myself and I mentally remember adjusting my image of myself. In a good way. I also remember one of Rahals staff saying I would not recognise myself in 6 months with 4k grafts on the front, and he was spot on. I would still recommend him, and I'm not an agent, or paid, or receive a discount etc.. it's just my opinion as one of his former paying customers.

    although some of your point are valid

    strip is a very destructive procedure that has many more drawbacks than just looking at how the scar heals

    the scalp is stretched, the head swells and the edema fluid can persist for years after Telogen Effluvium surgery, it puts additional stress on the skin in the forehead and face which could cause sagging and wrinkles. The injections are toxic and cause breakouts of the skin, Circulation could be restricted with poor methods and skill.

    I would never recommend strip, ever, or a hair transplant ever, unless you go to a highly skilled FUE doctor.

    I would never recommend a person below 30 years of age to even think about it.

    It is a bogus solution to a problem much bigger than the industry can handle, but they love the desperate people and their money.

    Mr. 4000, I read through your posts on your own thread, I'm sorry you have had such a bad experience during your hair transplant. However, this is a results thread, it is not for debating the merits of hair transplants. Unless you have a direct question for me please keep your opinion to your own thread.

    In general I had a very good experience with my hair transplant, and experienced non of the problems you mentioned. I fully agree that you get good and bad results and this is mainly down to the suregon.

    Thanks,
