6 months: 6 months and one day to be accurate. Took a series of pics today.

Trying kerastase masks(pricey stuff to smooth out wiry hair) and sticking with non-sulfate shampoo to fight the frizz, hair is a bit less frizzy, so the progress isn't showing as it should be, but my lagging areas are showing improvement, especially if you look at the root.

I still had a few pimples showing up in the sparse areas not too long ago so hopefully things are going to keep improving visible for the next couple months. The endgame will be a brazilian keratin treatment when the result is here to finally enjoy my hair. Researching the best way to avoid hair loss from straightening.

If you closely look at the transplanted areas they are still looking like shit but with some length it's blending pretty well with the rest of the hair and it's starting to look natural.












Wet, worse area, showing a pimple and tiny hairs(should mean upcoming thickening)

gman thanks for the update
coming along great for 6 months , lots of time left for thickening and maturing but even now a good cosmetic improvement compared to before.

i keep using the clippers on mine down to a grade 2 , i can see growth coming through but obviously its not gonna cover much but its coming through nicely.

im so far glad i went through with it but ill wait until the end result before my final judgement

I think you should let it grow at least up to an inch to fully appreciate the result. Transplanted hairs are chosen in the thicker area, and come in double, triples and quadruples. They will look better longer to give an illusion of coverage.

Worst area, considering a second pass there if it doesn't improve until month 12-14.

Diffuse thinning, to be fixed by a SMP:

Will post an 8-month update in a few days. Things have improved I hope it's not just due to the length.

8 months post-op. Cloudy day, couldn't get the best lightning for the monthly selfies.

I think it's almost the final result, I may enjoy some more thickening over the nest couple months but I can start to draw conclusions. It still looks better week after week, but maybe it's just the length.

I think I should have started with a FUT to get a better yield and to exploit my donor area better. The density is meh if you take a honest look, but that's the norm with a first FUE. I'd like to enjoy the undeniable cosmetic improvement for a little while before getting a second pass, I will email the top docs right away.

I will get a straightening treatment in one month to get rid of the goofy curls, it will be the moment of truth. I will not fail to keep you updated, but if the result is satsifactory, I'm probably going to forget what a computer is for a little while.




I had a nasty pimple that I tried to treat in that almost bald spot in the forelock area, hopefully some hairs can show up in this one spot when the skin heals.





Bad side where the technician didn't seem very serious.




Let's see the donor area I would love to know how many grafts I've got let in there.




To put things into perspective, let's have a look at the horrendous pre-op pics, and keep in mind I was really able to run serious cover-up game back then with that length. I think Demirsoy did a good job. But I will most likely go see a Belgian big name for the second pass because I need to make the most out of my donor area and to do the temple points.

It looks great, massive improvement from pre-op. The density seems fine to me unless you part the hair.

My FUE kept improving past the 12 month mark so give it time man. Don't bother with the temple points yours are close enough to the forehead the way they are.
