Question. please help


#1

Hi Guys, Do any of you know a doctor that would be willing to start off with maybe just a hundred grafts at a time,I know this would not ammount to that much money,but after haveing gone through what I have with Dominic brandy I am so afraid to attempt this again but to ever look anything near right I really need to,I have been putting this off for a long time,I really just don’t know who to go to,it would have to be someone who performs fue and bodyhair also,as my donor is pretty much gone, Any help anyone could offer I would be grateful for,thanks in advance.

That’s really the way to go, I never understand why people are getting thousands of grafts all in one shot, that’s just like gambling in my opinion. I think Cole will do that.

Look into Dr. Umar in CA. The reason most do not do very small sessions like the one that you want is because of the prep costs (techs, surgical room, etc.) and scheduling. It would be absolutely absurd to go for a 100-graft strip. Personally, I would not want to subject myself to that many surgeries for such few benefits.

Hi bba---- Why don’t you send me some pics of your situation @ moseley_j@comcast.net

Although we do not do body hair, we do not mind doing a small test session with scalp donor to check growth rates.

I’ll have Dr. Shapiro have a look at your pics and get his opinion for you.

Take Care,
Jason

Thanks all of you who got back to me,To go into more detail the area that I want repaired most of all is the right side of my neck,when brandy did what he calls the hairlift on me it lifted the right side a bit to much,and it doesnt look right at all,it would not take that much at all to repair that area I think about two hundred hairs but i could be wrong,the area that needs repaired is about one and not over two square inches,I guess it might be hard for some to understand why that area would bother me so much but believe me when the neckline is lifted to high it really looks awful,I find myself looking at it many times dureing the day and it has really depressed me more than I can tell you.I will try and send you some pics.And thanks again.

Can you email me your pics? I will set up a forum journal for you.

Strip-type surgeries are CRAZY to do small amounts at a time. In that case I say do at least 3000 grafts with a strip or don’t do it at all.

But for FUE I think there’s some real logic to what you’re talking about. Maybe more than 100 grafts in a session, but there’s no great need to go to several thousand grafts at once. They only incentive for a super-high # of grafts with a single FUE session would be the shaved head each time.

Hey BBA,

Cal gave some good advice. If you were going strip you would not want to go in for such small sessions. Most people elect to go in for larger sessions so they can have their hair loss taken care of in 1 - 2 surgeries. It started with Strip mega sessions and has now advanced into FUE mega sessions.

If you are interested in only 100 - 200 grafts at a time it could take you many many surgeries for yo uto reach your goals, that is alot of down time.

You may want to post your photos and ask the advice of board members.

As far as researching a doctor, Researching on the forums is a good place to start. Start looking at the results of doctors and decide whos results you really like. Talk to patients of those doctors. Try to see some results in person.
