It is now 18 months since I had my 4th hair transplant with the @HairDr Clinic. I decided to provide some updates, because I feel my hair has improved since the 12 month mark. This happened with my previous surgeries too.

The reason I posted this is because not everyone has full growth early on, and for some, it takes time to get the final result


I’m currently not taking any meds for my hair due to sides.

I plan on getting another 1000 grafts - donor allowing - with @HairDr Clinic in 2022 - just to add some more density to my crown.

Hi Edsam.
The picture quality is not the best but your hair is looking good. Like you, there are people that experience growth and maturity past the 12 months mark.
Going for a possible 5th surgery, hair greed is kicking in.
Thanks for the update.

Hi Mike, all is good thanks - other than homeschooling and working, which is killing me, very slowly! How are you? Have you been furloughed? Loving the quiff in your profile picture. Your hair looks so thick at the front.

I am going for a consultation later in the year with Dr A to see if he can extract any more from my donor, to add a bit more density to the crown. I've come this far, so why not one more, if I can. Not sure though, although my donor does feel pretty strong still, especially when it's a bit longer. Hoping I might be able to get another 1000 grafts or so. I just can't bring myself to go back on the finasteride, even though I know it would really help. I feel so much better when I am not on it, and I hate taking pills!

Haha! I can imagine!!! Hopefully not too long now! Im good obviously business closed but i been doing bits and just started decorating the function room so that and walking the dog keeping me sane. HA! thanks its much longer now and it more like Zack's from saved by the bell.
Yeah its crazy how many youve had and Im sure that you can spare up to a thousand more :p.
Yes Thankfully its not effected me but still slight worries there especially when hear/read things so i tend not to. I feel fine, everything working (HA) so im happy.
Aint there nothing now that is as effective as finasteride?

I’ve debated about taking finasteride again. I started when I was 25 and cycled on and off for a few years.

I’m now in my 40s, and my best mate had a stroke and another mate has got cancer, so
I’ve decided to live as clean as I can in terms of my diet and lifestyle. Taking it would go against this. I’m a bit torn, as I respond well to it, it don’t think I’ll ever go back to it for these reasons, even if my donor won’t yield another 1k to 1.5k grafts.
