BLM, I suggest letting your hair grow out at this point, not everyone grows at the same rate, 6 months is still early and I don't think that more growth is a low possibility, I think more growth is what WILL occur just be patient happy growing

Looking at another's progress can be very depressing because the reality is, not everyone grows at the same rate. 6 months is still early and for slow growers, which you very well may be, the majority of their growth occur after this stage. In the meantime, try not to panic and just wait it out until 12 months when everyhing grows in.

Best wishes,

Bill

To be honest you used a very small amount of grafts considering the area covered. There was very little margin for error. In my humble opinion Konior's graft quote for you seems more on the money, and the truth is his FUE work is stronger.
I appreciate the candor. One of the things I love about this forum (as opposed to the Polyanna sly guys forum where everyone "looks great!!!1") is that users don't hold back when they think growth is bad.

Thanks HTsoon. I was planning to leave buzzed at 1mm until the gaps between grafts close a bit more before growing it out. Perhaps i'll try growing it out now and sprinkling a bit of Toppik in.

Thanks Bill! Tbh I wasn't really panicking until reading through all the responses on here saying that my growth is bad lol. All joking aside, I think it will turn out fine -- I just want it to happen a little faster.

Yeah, what you need to do is hop on the phone and start negotiating a refund. There're clear signs of minimal growth and doctors need to own up to their inadequate results, no matter what their reputations may be. This is a very irregular pattern indicative of minimal graft survival. Give it till 8 months and then hit the clinic with as much as much pressure as possible. How many times does Dr. Feller need to rant on about FUE mega sessions.

And I've been on here long enough to know that most of these moderators will defend their paying doctors on pain of death. These cases of slow growers are extraordinarily rare out of the percentage of those who have received transplants. It's possible, but it's also bull**** to give a patient false hope and continue to waste more of their time.

Hey baldlivesmatter,

I completely agree with jbl2093, you need to start hitting the phone to the doctor. I think the grafts in this case clearly did not survive. The "patience" card is not playing here and it is extremely rare.
I seriously wish that I am wrong and your grafts grow but you need to be at par with the clinic now.

I am really sorry and I know the pain of something going wrong in terms of HT and it is a big clusterf**k.

I hope you get your refund and then get your growth as well from someone more genuine.

Good luck

You are right the there is only small hope for a great outcome, but, come on, this was hardly a mega session. Actually it might have been too few grafts from begin with.
