My first procedure was a strip transplant of 2,070 grafts with Dr. K in 2009. My second procedure was for 1,250 grafts of FUE with Dr. K October 2015 and I went back just four days later to have him fill in the scar from my first op.
The doc can make a recommendation for you and tell you the pros and cons for each but, if you asked me, if you have a lot of area to cover, you probably want to start with strip and then use FUE to fill it in at a later date. As far as I know, you can get a much better yield through strip and you can get a lot more done in one procedure.
Propecia for 1 year, just quit because it was messing with me sexually and I didnt notice any difference in my hair (im not thinning in the back). I will start using Rogaine a week after this op I just had so I can try to combat further loss. Hopefully the R wont cause the same side effects.
My Hair Loss Story
First, let me offer to help you if you want to email me, I know where your head is at and I am happy to give you my insight. When I first started considering doing something about my hair, I was extremely nervous and researched on the web almost daily for months or maybe even more than a year. Now, having just finished my second procedure, the best advice I can give is: don't waste your time, just do it!
As long as you have the right surgeon and follow the instructions, you are going to have a great result with minimal suffering.
If you live in the area, or can make it down to Chicago for a little while, go to Dr. Konior. He is going to do a great job and you wont regret it. Just be sure to book in advance because the man has a busy schedule. And when you see him, tell him Rob said "hello"!
I'm sure there are other good surgeons out there, but I can guarantee this one.
