You should do more research.
"There's always the option to FUE into it"... well I've thought about that. And as a guy that has spent 15k + on 3000 or so grafts... I wish I'd just gone FUE and had no scar.
Now that I have a scar and can't afford another FUT transplant I don't want to spend more money putting FUE into my scar - I wish I'd just done FUE and put that to "good" use in my recipient area.
FUT is shit. If you want FUE goto Cole / Umar / Gho and don't waste your precious grafts by putting them into a freaking scar you could have gone without.
At the end of the day, I'm just trying to put on a brave face, I'm going to wait out this year and see what happens with Aderans and Histogen. Hopefully they will annouce something positive and then I'll just wait for them to goto market.
BUT if I was going to get a HT and had a virgin head like you. I'd be getting FUE from day 1.
You do FUT now... don't come crying back here because you've been totally told brother
