Default 20 weeks since my procedure pics

Okay so 20 weeks since I got it done.. I still have redness and the coverage is okay I guess not super thrilled but I know it’s still early. Hopefully in the coming months it’s thickens up and the redness goes away

Here are some pics with my hair down and with me revealing the areas

Default 6 months & 4 days ó week 27 ó day 189

Iím not that thrilled with the results, density is not where I thought it would be at this stage. On another note I do see a lot of fine hair that has to mature and a couple of new hairs poking through.

Keep in mind these pictures were takin in harsh over head lighting and with me combing my hair back to expose the areas.

I took pictures before showering so my hair was oily, and pictures after I showered (wet). I will also show how my hair is dried after I showered because it does look different than the ones I took before showering.

Let me know what you guys think ? Do I still have a shot of some nice thickness still coming ?

I say give it until month 10. If your results are still as shown here, then maybe you're looking at a failed transplant. I do doubt it though. Nader has shown great results.

I donít think the results are bad n it will get better:. But ur density is not there because u r transplanting around 1500 grafts for ur whole midscalp.. usually thatís just enough to just do the hairline n temples dense packed.. if ur results arenít to ur satisfaction then u can go in for a second round,, I think doctor Nader is conservative in the dense packing because he wants most of ur grafts to survive.. n since he is affordable the second transplant to get more density will really achieve the results u Want n u be satisfied .. heís a good doctor but ur density u want canít be achieved with 1500 grafts to zones 1,2, n 3, u need at least 2000-2500 for that ..
I was quoted 1200 to the hairline n 200 to the temple points from other doctors In California that charges $8+ a graft .. just to give u an estimation of what to expect .. best wishes to ya .. keep us updated

I do think it will get better, but the transplanted hair was transplanted into the temples & hairline mainly and he he put some random hairs around the midscalp if you look at my post op pics. I have a feeling Iím gonna need the full 12 months. I could also be needing a second procedure as well .. I guess only time will tell
