Well choose wisely. Best of luck to the both of us, hopefully we can style our hair as we wish in our 30s and beyond. I fully expect to have more hair transplants in the future myself though.
Damn, thank you for that information. I wonder if it's thanks to me that De Reys has so much success now.
Yeah I probably think I will need some crown work one day but at the moment it's basically full. It was a small hole forming before I got on finasteride, not such a wide radius in this region. Had it scoped. I don't mind repeated transplants. I am very calm and informed about the whole thing.
Fully agree on being able to style our hair how we want to.
You're too kind as always, Parsia. You can always pm me. I try to log on to do any admin related stuff. I know what you mean about having the best hair you possibly can. I think it's worth it. You in particular would benefit from a transplant for your frontal 1/3. Medications have helped you tremendously so keep doing that too. The medication will maintain the posterior 1/3 and mid scalp region for you.
North America has good surgeons but the cost is on the higher side. Generally look at Turkey, Spain and Belgium imo - good cost and results. There is a "coalition of approved surgeons" on the web if you do some research. It's important to look at before and after pictures of other patients so you can gauge if you would be happy with that.
In Turkey Dr ********* or Erdogan come to mind. In Belgium Dr De Reys, ******** e.t.c.
Message Swoop for precise information - he knows a lot and has had a transplant himself for the frontal 1/3.
If you're that desperate,and a Doctor is turning you down because of finasteride. Why not just lie and say you're on it? Or use a different maintenance treatment like RU? If you're prepared to take full responsibility if/when you continue to lose despite the hair transplant. There may well be other treatment options available by the time this becomes a problem though, if you think your hairloss is that slow. Especially if the encouraging news regarding Replicel+Histogen from the Hair Congress follows their projected timeline.

I mean wtf is that?? What are those red pimples around the implanted hair? Will that be visible if that guy shaves his hair? He was better off not having a hair transplant at all than having that.
And the ironic thing is that I can still comb the hair in a way that no MBP is visible at all, it looks like a full head of hair, only the hairline in the corners receeded on my already long forehead but I can always comb it forward and mask it. But I feel like my life is going to be over pretty soon. Well at least love life. xP
I don't know if with finasteride there is less shock loss for the native hair and that Dr. might do a different approach because he thinks I am using finasteride that would end badly for me. Also he could go outside the safe donor area to collect the grafts and that could end badly.
Those surgeons don't realize the harm they're doing. They're the only ones who could help you, yet they're like "Nope, sorry, won't do it, what are you going to do?!"
And shock loss hairs do grow back, it sucks, but it probably shouldn't be a determining factor in a decision to get a hair transplant.
getting a more conservative hair transplant starting at the back/crown
Now that I see your pictures, I would say Erdogan was right to reject you. You're definitely not a candidate.
