I dont think I can ever accept going bald. It's not gonna happen. Worst case scenario I'll go to dr. Gho in Holland. It might fall out again but the donor area will regenerate new hair, which can be used again for another HT. It's expensive and I don't know where I'm going to come up with all that money but I'm not going to just sit down and let this curse ruin the rest of my life.
I really don't know anything about what you're asking (scar width). All I know is the doctor before him didn't do a good job on the scar and it was easier to see but dr. Wong fixed it.
Wow... I have never heard of this. Your right, 4000 grafts in the front quarter should look thick. Are you sure your willing to go at it again? theres a good chance it would continue to shed.
Do you remember the width of the scar before Wong did his work? how wide was wong's after 6-8 months? I may be using them to do a revision. currently my upper scar is 5-6 mm wide.
Dr. Wong did a good job actually on the scar. I had a bigger than usual scar from the previous 2 HTs (in LA) and it didn't look good but he fixed it for me.
I sometimes tell myself I'm only losing native hair but it's kind hard to believe I'm only losing native hair. I mean more than 4000 grafts in the first quarter of the head (hairline and temples) should be more than enough to give you good density. The other thing, I remember I had a lower hairline especially in the temples after my 3rd HT and now it looks receded and thin again. Yes, I did have a lot of native hair when I began my HTs but there's no doubt I'm losing transplanted hairs too. My only hope is I don't lose it all.
Even the doctor told me a small minority of people lose their transplanted hair and he thought that was the problem in my case. You can look it up online. There are similar cases and posts by men. It's the sad truth that no HT patient wants to hear.
How did the scar heal from Hasson and Wong? That sucks your loosing your transplanted hair. Are you sure its not your native hair your losing? I have about 3000 grafts myself and it has always looked rather low in density.
I don't have an issue with H&W. I just have a special curse from god. Basically I've had 4 1/2 HTs, all with different doctors including H&W (totalling more than 4000 grafts) over the past decade, all in the frontal area but I keep losing a lot of the transplanted hair and eventually the area becomes thinner. This has nothing to do with H&W and it turns out there's a small minority of people who lose their transplanted hair with time. That's why I'm considering FUE because I can't keep getting strips taken out. That's the problem I have.
