    Thanks for the info. I've heard people recommend fut then once maximum grafts via strips r taken then fue should be utilized. I've heard scar tissue after fue prevents fut down the line. Is this true? Any other reasons?

    I suspect the author of this post is being paid to post positive reviews by erdogan affiliates

    Why do you say that I have to disagree.

    I’ve just been to Asmed and I had a great experience so I like telling people about it, as other people helped me make my decision by posting their experiences.

    Because on the balance of probabilities i am probably correct.

    for such a norwood , 3000 grafts,good surgeon/team+ finasteride you will always have great result and density. 3000 is actually good for a norwood 3A (slick bald frontal third). So tbh this case is not an exceptionnal result but still great work by a great team.
    btw as always with koray, the calculation of the donor area is misleading. I don't know why he relies on it when people are young and at such stage of baldness...

    This is why it's important to hold onto native hair. Also, the artistic part of a transplant is so
    much easier for surgeon when he has *some hair for reference* ie. the ''island part'' in frontal
    third as an example.

    Therefore, I'm seriously considering Mr Erdogan / Lorenzo before I lose all my native hair as
    crazy as that may sound for anybody, taking into account my other hair characteristics (probably
    atleast an OK candidate because of total balding surface of 165 cm^2) and relatively small scalp
    surface.

    Man, you must be so happy!

    Results like yours give me hope and inspiration to review transplant possibilities once again.

    Would you care to give an update of your current total regimen?
    * I remember you did 0,25mg fina...

    Balance of probabilities aside, you're objectively an idiot and that is objectively not the case. I would like it to be the correct because getting a free transplant from a top global clinic to speak well about the clinic online would be nice, but unfortunately not the case.

    On the international forum I see cases from donors half as good as mine in both density and total area getting into the 7000 graft utilisation region and regularly 5500 on donors far worse. This is the same coverage value system that Lorenzo uses and the numbers and system are similar to what Feriduni gets as well. Propaganda from scorned FUT surgeons aside, the numbers have been proven realistic. Personally I wouldn't go over 7000, but at that point I could still undergo a small FUT as I have exceptional laxity, use SMP for the illusion of density or use some beard hair as donor. Considering 85% of finasteride users maintain for up to a decade in most studies I have seen (at which point the studies end). The worries about young people are not based on facts but fear mongering. On the balance of probabilities of course some will achieve better long term results and experience than others, but this has nothing to do with age.

    Also is there a reason that despite using the same coverage value system as Erdogan with similar numbers Lorenzo receives no criticisms for this, and yet Erdogan does regularly? It should be a rhetorical question but the fact is that it's a cultural bias against a Turkish surgeon with a lower price that a Spanish surgeon doesn't have to deal with.

    Realistically I don't think that 3000 on a slick bald frontal third with my same hair texture will get results anywhere near as good as mine (which aren't perfect, but are very good). If you're looking at results of some like Freitas or Couto working with Spanish hair at 65-70 microns as opposed to 50-60 in my case it makes a big difference. Send some if you honestly think that is the case though. I also started finasteride and saw the most changes well before the surgery.

    On graft numbers, this guy had 4000 grafts into what looks like a smaller area than mine (didn't run over the central forelock as much) and of course no one bothers to talk about Hasson's graft numbers. This number is regular for recent Hasson NW3 procedures. Again I wonder why that is and yet 95% of Erdogan cases with a significantly lesser extent of dense packing are piled on with questions of graft numbers.

    The feeling of not having to worry about your hair when going out in public or just looking at yourself aged 10 years and dropped 2 points in attractiveness in the mirror every day really can't be understated.

    Started off with a laser helmet, trichogen solution, nizoral 2%, minoxidil, 0.25mg of finasteride and a country life maxi hair vitamin supplement. Lasted about 3 months on that, got sick of using minoxidil (also had breathing issues with it). same with the laser and the trichogen was mainly to stop drandruff, which interestingly stopped after the transplant.

    Just using 0.25mg finasteride, the maxi hair vitamins, 2% nizoral once a week, Regenepure DR once a week, then alternating between Pura D'or Gold shampoo and Regenepure NT.

    Good results. My only worry after a transplant would be that finasteride would eventually lose effectiveness and that my hair would look like Wayne Rooney's. I can't get a transplant anyway though cuz I am not responding to finasteride and am starting to thin pretty bad in the donor zone. You're lucky you had such good results. Hopefully things stay that way. Wish you the best.

    it does feel good to walk outside and not think about your hair anymore outside of how you want to style it. Wind, water has no bearing on how you feel anymore, and you simply focus on what matters around you.

    First transplant is OK, but it;s the second one that will truly make you feel free.

    First transplant gives you a base and foundation, the next pass is where you truly ramp the density and look like a GOD

    So what kind of density can be achieved in the second round? Enough to get away with buzzing the hair without a guard?
