    Even with flights (which you can get a rebate for in some places), you're going to get a surgery that is probably at least 30% cheaper, and twice as good if you travel. Even if you travel to Canada, that's only an extra 3 or 4 days out of your life. Is your goal trying to fix your hair, or is it to stay in your own country at all costs? Inevitably you'll end up realising this yourself at some point even if others hadn't told you this. A transplant in the UK is stupid, and so is staying in your own country for a hair transplant.

    Could be worse.. at least he's not looking at an Australian or New Zealand clinic, lol $8 a graft , I don't think there is any worse value for money in the world for hair transplants than down here.

    Your English is fine, are you saying the donor hair, or the hair that's still growing, some confusion. Donor hair is what they say doesn't fall after planting elsewhere

    Donor hair is what they say doesn't fall after planting elsewhere unless you have DUPA, in that case you are going to need finasteride forever and it is complicated to end up satisfied after a surgery if suffering from DUPA. Many times coverage does not meet your goals
    In this video you have english description. watch on youtube!

    That isn't DUPA, that is just someone who is diffused. DUPA is when the back and sides are thinning too.

    from the description: "36 year-old patient with advanced alopecia and thinning in the donor area (DUPA= Diffuse unpatterned alopecia)."

    And yet as a 36 year old with "DUPA" his donor looks like it could take another 2500 grafts after 4700. The guy doesn't have DUPA. They clearly mean diffuse thinning.

    Yes! Lorenzo is a liar and that is not a DUPA.
    You should be aware the technique that Lorenzo puts in practice. Lorenzo always gives you a spreadsheet with your donor area features in detail graft by graft.
    The donor area looks great because top doctors do not pick grafts up randomly.
    Btw that is unfortunately a DUPA.

    So DUPA is not diffuse thinning like I have, if the sides and back are still good, that's not DUPA?

    Does that change things...and not apply then to what you are referring to, ie drugs for donor area?
    Do all people who have diffuse have to keep taking stuff?

    Diffuse is when you hair loss has no pattern, your hair drop from all the top of your head, not only from a specific area. This is also a DUPA but sometimes DHT also affects to your nape and sides thinning the hair which means it will drop sooner or later and can not be picked up. Doctors take healthy hairs but they can not predict when the hairs picked up can suffer DHT and this is why you need medication. Dutasteride is recommended for DUPA as it blocks 95% DHT.

    If he said it is DUPA then it is very likely DUPA. Most times it is only detectable with magnification. He'll look with a microscope/cam and if you have more than 10-15% of hairs that do not match the rest of your donor ie different pigment, look more miniaturized etc he considers it DUPA. My donor looks thick af and hasn't seemed to change at all but he told me I have potential 'hidden DUPA' because some of the donor looked suspect. Especially if you're already on meds for all you know you could have DUPA that is being kept at bay so if there is even a slight chance of it it make sense he'd warn patients so they don't get off finasteride/dutasteride ever. Also DUPA varies it doesn't necessarily mean your whole donor gets wiped out like the rest of your male pattern baldness hair just that it is androgen sensitive to a degree.
