Are BHT mega sessions still a good idea?

Are BHT mega sessions still a good idea?
And I was wondering what tools are used in megasessions? Just needles?


#2

Not just no but heck no! Not one BHT meggassesion has proved to ever work. IMO. You definitely need to do more research bro.:no: :no:

Heliboy???

With the exception 1 or 2 results that no has a good explanation for why it grew… I stand way against a BHT meggassession.

I’m thinking about 1000 grafts into my donor scar and about another 1000 into my crown. What would be considered a megasession of body hair? I don’t want to over do it and have it fail miserably.

I really hate to put a damper on it bro… but you really need to realize the success/failure rates of BHT currently lean heavily on the failure side.

Yes there are a couple of decent growths but not significantly to offer BHT as a solid alternative or even adjunct to scalp hair transplantation.

:no: :no: :no: :no:

Meggassesion… I would guess more than 2000 but why pay 8-15 dollars per graft?

You would do better in Las Vegas playing the slot machines than to spend that kind of money on hopes that BHT will actually grow.

I dont know about tools. But theres nothing wrong with using body hair appropriately.
Farscalpe’s result is good. http://www.hairsite.com/hair-loss/board_entry.php?id=12574&page=0&order=last_answer&descasc=DESC&category=0

Then there was the recent 10,000 graft case Dr. A posted recently. That was decent coverage for that level of hairloss.
I guess it boils down to choosing the correct doctor and correct approach.

Use of beard hair for scar seems logical choice. See Flash’s thread above. http://www.hairsite.com/hair-loss/board_entry.php?id=12415

That case you are speaking about is 5 months out and mhas a mixture of scalp hair within the BHT grafts.

While this is a better approach, at 5 months no one knows if BHT has begun to grow.

This simple post by you shows that you think BHT has grown in 5 months. Not to say it won’t, or Dr. A used poor judgement. Just goes to show folks are slightly mis-led.

What you are more than likely seeing is the scalp hair shooting out first… and probably not the BHT yet. this is based on years of experience but who really knows.:slight_smile:

How many documented growing BHT cases will it take for some folks to embrace BHT as less than “iffy”?
(for those with good donor hair)

Three cases were presented this month.
IMO, BHT is improving every month now.

Are there failures over the last few years? Yes.
But there are successes too.
Is BHT the same as head hair? No.
Am I talking like Donald Rumsfeld? Maybe. Lol.

Now beard hair is in the mix.
For scars, this could be key.

Something tells me we are going to see more and more cases presented as the year ends.

A small BHT test is the way to go when having FUE.
Wait a year and judge the results for yourself.

I think that body hair is the best for filler but if you are using it as your main source of hair then i think you have to do a megasession to see any sort of good result.

That whole donald rumsfeld thing has worked itself into every day language. i think you are the first (or second) to notice. It’s so funny how many times I hear it nowdays.:slight_smile:

I dont know about you, I dont think that much growth at just 5 months is only from 3500 head grafts. If it is, Dr. A must be onto something like HM. :slight_smile:
What makes you say head hair grows before body hair. I heard the body hair grows in earlier or at the same time.

Yes, but what proportion is good that is what I wonder. Farscalpe hadonly 1900 head grafts in his 6000 grafts. Thats what ? 30%. He looks good at 9 months.

Whats your opinion about Farscalpe at 9 months?
