My hairline was still ok if I kept it medium short but widows peak started getting asymmetrical and I was tired of looking at my hair in the mirror so often (shame on me, I know) so I took the plunge.

Found out about Clinicana online and tried them. The customer service is flawless. Pick you up and drop you off at airport, book hotel for you ($90/night) and transport you to and from the clinic, which is set in almost brand new Avidacem hospital.

Dr Attar made me raise my eyebrows and drew the hairline. Then two technicians harvested and implanted 1700 grafts. Came back to get my hair hair washed 2 days later. I plan to take some pictures after 9 days, and more a few months later. If results are good, I will very strongly recommend this clinic to everybody. We will know sometime between April and October 2017.

I've been following post-op instructions to the letter so far. They all make sense to me. I haven't had any excessive bleeding and I've only lost 4 or 5 grafts so far, as far as I can tell. I've bought a hat to protect against the sun.

Let's see what happens.

Hi Skybarsq! Photos would do you no good because i'm in the shedding phase right now, 4 weeks post-op. I've lost most of the implanted hair, which is normal. The redness has lessened but is still there.

You need to wait until mid-january before I see the new hair starting to pop out and until the end of April until we know if the transplant was successful.

Don't you worry, i'm not going to forget this thread. Clinicana will get all the praise (or condemnation) it deserves. I'll make sure of it.

If you can wait until then, you can go in with peace of mind (which is pretty darn valuable).

All I can say for sure now is there was no infection and the sensitivity of the donor area is improving. No noticeable shock loss to the pre-existing hair.

6 month results:

Right side looks better than left side. Noticeable improvement over pre-procedure, but not not as good as I hoped for. I've let my hair grow pretty long so it's pretty tricky to show top down view.
