HT Soon- Thanks for the message and I hope all is good with you, it's funny on the plane back from Prague from the ISHRS conference Dr Ball commented that my crown was looking improved and that we needed some take some photos. I picked up a bug and have not been in the clinic the last couple of days so will do that next week.

As you have seen I have not been active on the forums just down to my workload in being day in at the clinic seeing patients rather than online, but I want that to change and be more active on here. As for how I feel about the crown I have noticed a number of spiky hairs over the months and I can tell the beard hair in the crown compared to the scalp hair. For a large crown like mine with the numbers we used I was not expecting much of a change.

It is interesting that I have very curly beard hair when grown long so have been tending to keep my hair shorter than the pre op photos so a proper like for like is only possible with more growth. I also prefer it shorter now. I also stopped Propecia 4 months ago.

As for the donor I have seen decent improvements here, my barber can cut my hair shorter sides and back without the same worry that I used to have. We only filled in the worst parts of my donor scars but it now looks like just a slightly reduced density area rather than scar tissue.

Under my chin looks amazing I would not know I had any hairs extracted density looks unchanged and the healing was perfect. I just realised I didn't post my shaved face photos from May. I will do this now.

An 8th procedure is in the planning to use some more donor scalp hair in the crown and some more beard hair in the scars and repeat PRP.

Sultsay- Thanks very much, updates to come I promise. Dr Ball uses a motorised punch he is favouring Dr Devroye's hybrid punch. We have not done a huge amount of body as in chest hair but is something that we are looking into. Interesting lecture on that subject at the conference in Prague last week.

Here's my chin two months after surgery (not the greatest of shaves)

Wow the beard looks impeccable, Iím considering doing another 1,000 or so grafts and then possibly transplanting some beard hair to the donor area to make up for the loss in density, do you notice any difference in th beard hair as opposed to the scalp hair in terms of growth time, growth rates etc? Canít wait to see the updates.

Having had PRP myself with one of the best in the game, I'm very skeptical of it's efficacy David. Is there anyway you can point to the improvements you've had from PRP. For me it just causes a massive shed, and in the long term it seems as though it would do more harm than good.

Platelet rich plasma therapy has been found to be very efficient treatment(almost all the cases) specially in case of male pattern baldness. PRP is a procedure that involves using components(plasma) of a patient's own blood to promote stimulation of hair growth. As all the procedures PRP will also have its pros and cons. Every patient is different, hence depending on the clinic and the surgeon variation in results will be there.
