Update Month 9

Very little improvement in density compared to month 7/8.
Definetly no NEW growth after month 7.
My midscalp is really improving now with Fin!
I stopped taking Biotin because my nails grew like crazy and I had to cut them too often.

Regarding the quality of the new hair: My original hair calibre is 50 microns and I would guess that
50% of the new hair is around 40-50 microns while the rest new hair is around 25-30 microns. This makes me hope for some more desity in the next 3-6 months.

Frontal third is still a bit numb and the skin is a bit sensitive.

It matters A LOT in which lighting conditions you are looking at your hair. Under harsh light it looks quite seethrough while it looks really good when the light is a bit less bright and darker. The last three pictures, shot from a low angle where the hairline is really exposed, show that.

At the moment I don’t know if I am too impatient but I did expect a bit more density in the hairline. I mean I started as a NW3 and got 3500 Grafts in the frontal third…
When I look at some other threads (e.g. JustJax, DEB1982) I see the same issue with lacking density. Don’t get me wrong I think our results are strong but unfortunately this little bit of density that makes you think "WHOW" is still missing. So is this just „state of the art“ for HT in 2016/17 or can we expect more…?

Look at where you've come from to where you are now though. I agree the hair line needs to be stronger as does my own but I would give it a few more months before passing judgement. I've read a lot of reviews where they have been in similar situations and it improves up to and beyond 18 months. I think a lot of people need a small second pass to refine and achieve the perfect hair line but you'd only be looking at 1000 grafts if that's the case.

I'm still seeing small improvements and am going to see where I stand this time next year. Give it some more time I'm certain you will continue to see density improvements as the hair matures.

Look where you came from mate. We are our own worst critics. I'm still thinking "this isn't very dense" after my HT. I then look at before pics and go "holy s....t, i can't believe how bald i looked"!!

Hair greed is definitely real, but i think we need to sit back and appreciate the cosmetic improvement we have gained from the procedure.

I think it's a solid result, and to be expected from anyone with 50 micron hair and similar hair texture to you. You can't compare yourself to a lot of the European and Arab Erdogan patients with 60-70 micron hair who are at a major advantage.

Take a look at some of the recent Hasson results, cramming 3000 - 4000 FUT grafts into half the area and you'll realise that it isn't a HUGE amount of grafts, and is a very large area. With a 25-30% touchup on the hairline it would likely take it from a decent result to a monster result.

I also think that when you'll look back from 8-12 months you'll definitely see a small amount of further improvement at the end.

Hey guys here is my update after 1 year

-Recipient area looks strong and healthy
-I would appreciate a bit more density (+500 Grafts?) in the hairline but the difference to where I started is huge.
-To invest some grafts in restoring the temple triangles was a very good descision.
-My scalp is still a little bit numb. I don't know if that will ever change...I don't care.
-No sides with fin.
-Stopped taking Biotin because my fingernails grew like crazy.

I'll post my final update after 18 months

Cheers!

It looks like you improved since the 9 month mark but the pics aren't exactly the same under the same lighting. All in all for the number of grafts done you should be quite happy you got a good result and could always go back for more if need be. When you are having your whole frontal third and hairline rebuilt you should consider yourself extremely lucky that you only have the minor criticism of wanting ~500 grafts for added density!
