Your results look pretty solid to me. Considering you had 1600 grafts only for quite a large area of coverage I think you're coming along really well. Transformation from before is awesome. Still expect you will continue to see improvement and as hairs strengthen it will add natural looking density. You must be pleased with result? I think we all get greedy for more density but only u will know how successful it's been based on the number of grafts u had

8 month update. Right temple is still low on density or yield. There's no new hair coming through, so I imagine this is going to be it, in terms of growth. There are gaps in the transplanted hair in this region.

Overall a great cosmetic improvement, although I'm a bit disappointed with the density. Am I being too high in my expectations?

It's definitely a lot better than my before pics.... with the big McDonald's M hairline ..

Comments appreciated guys.

Pics taken in normal room lighting.

Hey, unless it's a really old mobile then you should still be able to get good pictures. Instead of normal room lighting I find by the window or our doors (not in direct sunlight tho) better.

In terms of the result so far. Hard to really judge on those pics. Try outdoors as I suggested. I can commiserate a little though. While mine looks pretty good and I get compliments on it, if lI ook closer at my hairline and the overall density on the left side, it's definitely not as strong as I'd hoped, with the left side patchy in some parts. I'm still hoping (as I am sure you are) that it will improve further by 12 months. They do say density can improve in the later months and some posters on here have noted improved density in the 9-12 months stage. For me at least, if it doesn't improve by my 12 month anniversary then I'm going to speak to the clinic. Have you discussed it with Dr Saifi's people yet?

This is a pic of the right temple under very bright light. As you can see there's not much hair there. I don't think this is a good sign at 8 months. ... There's nearly a cm square where there are only a few hairs in it.

Tbh I doubt he'd offer free touch ups for a bad result....

Hey Dolph have you seen any further improvement? Your results look pretty solid I think.. Just a bit surprised Dr Saifi only implanted 1600 grafts. Your hair loss is probably slightly more advanced than mine (I am only 33 however), yet, I have been told I need anything from 1800 - 2500 grafts from the numerous doctors I have contacted. Anyway it's been great following your journey and I hope you feel satisfied with your results. Did you contact him about the possibility of a touch up?

Here's a ten month pic under normal room lighting. I think the individual hairs have perhaps thickened a bit, but the density is still sparse. Overall I'm happy compared to what it was like previously. At 48 I shouldn't really complain. continuing to use lipogaine minoxidil once a day. Under bright light it's very see through, but overall I'm happy enough with the cosmetic improvement.

Not sure about a second procedure yet, but i'll not rule it out...

Looks very good.
I have had 2 transplant with Saifi & he likes to not use a huge amount of grafts.

The CR Labs programme he recomends has been great for my hair.
