4 Months.

Beginning to get somewhere, but there are a few problem spots at the front of the hairline with minimal growth. Hoping I can get similar progress of the past two weeks up to 6 months and it should be looking pretty good. At this rate I'm probably a month off a decent cosmetic improvement and I'll get my first haircut at the five month mark which should help balance things out with the native hair.

Thanks! Finally I'll be having HT with Asmed this December. I'll be flying back the day after surgery so hopefully everything turns out well!

I think your starting situation was already quite good and seems you have strong hair.

Progress is looking hopeful, these are the fun months!

5 Months

Pretty happy with things at this stage. I've deliberately styled it to expose the transplanted areas, so excuse how messy it looks. Donor looks strong as hell. Also one photo under mild lighting with the hairline exposed.

When styled properly and under this sort of soft lighting there is already a massive improvement. It took 3 months for the rest of my hair to achieve good density and scalp coverage post-op due to the length issue and most of my sprouts started at around 3.5 months, so expecting at around 6.5 I'll be very happy.

Cooped up with assignments right now so haven't got a cut yet, but I'll take a chunk off in the next week or so and might post that.

Really good for 5 months bro I think you may be on track for a home run result. Crazy donor too, I imagine you're in the top percentile of total # of grafts available over a lifetime.

Hey man! Congrats on the surgery and the 5 months result looks amazing! I also got my first hair transplant in April and my hair looks almost the same as yours right now at 5 months. I also created a thread about my transplant so you can check out my pictures too!

Your hair also looks a bit wispy and see through in certain lighting, I'm hoping it will thicken up over time as the hair mature. Can someone that has experience chime in on how much thickening and density can still be gained past 5 months for me and JeanLuc?

Also are you still seeing new hair sprout up?

Quick post-cut update. Hoping I have a long way to go with density, thickness and more sprouts, but finally feel I'm comfortably past the ugly duckling stage.

Lighting, lens, camera and distance make all the difference of course, but already a big improvement. Added a pre-surgery pic for comparison.

Looks really great man! Can you take a picture under a brighter light and closer up so we can get a clearer view of the hairline?
