Default 5.5 months post OP | Dr Path 3876 grafts

Hi all,

It's now 5.5 months since my HT with Dr Path and it's starting to grow in. I can still feel some stubble that is only beginning to sprout (not alot). Feels like this is all the hair I am going to get and it's only thickening up from now on, am I on track?

Also I have been on Propecia and Minoxidol for roughly 8 months and as of late I have been experiencing some shedding of miniaturized hairs when applying the Minoxidol paste (Can see a bunch of these small thin hairs in my fingers). Should I be concerned about this?

The scar is a slight pink, still a little tender and numb here and there nothing to write home about thou. Some parts are quite lumpy and some are almost completely flat. Should I expect it to flatten out overtime?

Let me know what you think of the results so far.

PS. Yes I know the sides are quite long, I normally comb it over as I am still not confident enough to show the results. Hopefully by next year with the help of some concealers it will look decent.

Cheers.

Hi Vincent,

Looking really good imo! I bet you keep pinching yourself because you don't recognise yourself in the mirror.

I go for a 12 month assessment next week in Thailand.

Regards

Rod

Looking good! No, you should not be concerned with the thin hairs you see when applying the minoxidil. It's normal

Shedding of miniaturized hairs is usually a good sign. It means terminal hairs are on the way! As usual Dr. Path has delivered another great result!

You should be getting a lot more growth. 5.5 months is still early....

Yes! I see definite improvement. Also, at 5.5 months post-op, you can expect a lot more maturity and even a little more growth to come.

Either way, it's looking really good. Congratulations!

So I ordered some Toppik and it arrived 2 days ago. I gave it a quick test and to my surprise it worked quite well in filling the gaps. So today I took the plunge and went to a hair stylist and explained my situation. I haven't had a proper haircut like this in......well I can't really remember .

The hair stylist hadn't used Toppik or any other type of hair concealer before and he was absolutely amazed. From now on I will have to rely on some Toppik everyday until I go for my second HT next year, but I am absolutely over the moon right now.

I haven't had a chance to take a shower and wash it out yet so I don't have any pictures without Toppik, but I would say 80%+ is my own hair and the remaining is Toppik hiding gaps here and there.

Hi Vincent,

Can you let me know where you bought your Toppik from in Australia?

It seems to be pretty expensive here and at this stage I haven't used it to help with coverage.

Thanks

Rod

Hi Rod,

I bought it off eBay here:

TOPPIK HAIR FIBER 25g AUS Supplier - 9 COLOURS | eBay

Received it the next day. Total for 30g bottle with sprayer and postage was $95 to my door. This seriously works like a treat. Just don't go all crazy and dump a whole heap on, which for this the sprayer helps alot so I recommend you get that aswell.
