What is your problem? I mean really. I am no expert on hairloss, neither are you. I am certain you know a hell of a lot more than me, no doubt. But I doubt you know nearly as much as Dr. Feriduni or any other top-notch doctor out there. I appreciate your advice, but stop putting me down. I am only trying my best to correct my first and only mistake, hopefully. I doubt Dr. Feriduni and his team would have accepted my case, if they deemed it hopeless or something they could not do anything about. I am not asking for some crazy new, fancy hairline. A mature and appropriate hairline that will stay appropriate even 10 or 20 years from now. I want to take a conservative approach to the problem, and use as few new donor hairs as possible.
I still have thousands upon thousands of coarse, thick and dark body donor hair, from head to toes, literally. I'm a very hairy person. Something I think of as disgusting, but maybe just maybe it will help me in this case. My first hair transplant was a mistake beyond all stupidity. I was a moron for doing that. But I don't see how going for a repair could make things any worse than they already are. If possible, I will use no new donor hair from the back, and just move my hairline up a lot with the use of the badly and wrongly implanted grafts. I have about a thousand of those. But do you really suggest I ought laser of the hairs, let those healthy, strong and dark hairs go to waste just like that, and wait it out until I turn 25... another 3 and a half years of my life, only to end up with less grafts? By the way, didn't you get a hair transplant at 24? I know you were a Norwood 5, so your hairloss is much more advanced than mine. I see how it could benefit me in some ways, but in other ways not. I don't mean to be rude to you or cause any offense, but just because I don't choose the path you consider the best, doesn't mean I am destined for a bad outcome. Just because I choose not to listen to you, does not mean things won't go well for me this time around.
Summa summarum: Nothing is decided as of yet. Upon consultation, Dr. Feriduni may turn me down and tell me to wait, or he may not. But via online consultation, he gave it a green light. Can't know for certain before he gets to examine me close up vis-a-vis. We actually started losing out hair around the same age. It's hell, I know. I curse my genes and I curse myself for it. It is unbearable, especially at such a young and tender age. Sometimes I feel I belong in the circus. I hate looking at myself in the mirror. If I only could look and feel "normal" again. Nothing fancy, just normal. To feel normal again, after having been butchered by a mad "doctor". I am only trying to correct my first mistake, by going to an expert this time around. And by doing that, I believe he will tell me the honest truth and not push anything on me with no hidden agenda. I have learned from my first mistake. Had I not learnt, I probably would have gone back to the same mad doctor and had a second hair transplant, like many others have before me.
PS: I was only referring to a minoxidil-based product (Recrea Forte, 5% Minoxidil solution).
I started with propecia at a young age, so that is a huge plus too.
I wish you all the best.

I, earlier, wrote I wanted to do some work on my temples to add more hairs and make them more pronounced. I see there is no point in this now. It's not important.
