Very brave to adress you personal goals and I wish you the best that you can achieve what you are looking for. Personally I would not have lowered the hairline further. But I am also older which maybe changes the perspective.

Grow well and thank you for your support.
Hi Jean,
Well done for having the balls to go through another procedure. Some have questioned if you need the second run through, you are a perfectionist- it's clear to see. You are controversial, however I do agree with your posts......most of the time
I think your results so far are great, but you will move to another level now.
Hope you heal quickly and get the results you desire, good luck.

Do you have more pictures before the 2nd surgery? You put 4500 grafts on the front line and you only had a reciding fromt line, you are going to be like Elvis or Travolta!!!

I think your front line was good enough before the second surgery to be honest.

I think your front line was good enough before the second surgery to be honest.
If I wore the hair down (which I have my whole life) rather than exposing the hairline it looked fine as the temple was covered, but with the hairline exposed I felt there was still a visibly ageing effect from the slight remaining recession. Liveable, but considering I'm still 23 and unfortunate to have friends most of whom have shoulder length hair with juvenile hairlines, + want to go for girls my age and younger it didn't make sense to be conservative. At least in the case that I hadn't lowered it further I would have constantly regretted it.

4500 in the frontal third sounds like a large amount, but realistically I had virtually no hair in the frontal third (You might not see that initially with my long hair, but I'll put up photos to show you what I mean), and the forelock had significant implants into it also. I've gone from a high Norwood 3 with virtually no forelock left to something similar to a teenage hairline.

Of course it wasn't mandatory, the average person wouldn't have thought I had hairloss looking at my hairline and coverage after the first surgery (including my hairdresser who was impressed), this was more just a desire for perfectionism. At this point the line is exactly how I want it though, also I wasn't happy with the design of the hairline from the first procedure, as I thought it was too rounded which wasn't totally natural. Not the clinics fault, I actually directed them to do so after Koray designed one initially that in retrospect was more natural, but its hard to know exactly what will look ideal once it grows out and what suits to begin with.

Also put a photo up showing the remaining recession after the first op. I think it's fairly noticeable. Lengths are slightly different, I think it was at 7 months so the hairs weren't all at the same point but it shows my point well.

In the third picture I know what you mean. Your case reminds me a guy who put 5400 grafts on the front line but he moved his hair line very far down (but he looks amazing) so the case itís very oretty similar to yours! Here itís the video if you want to have a look;

Very interesting your case, Iím sure you are going to en like the guy on the video.

10 days.

Very impressed with how things are looking, especially the hairline. Can barely tell the natives apart from the transplants in the crown. Doesn't seem to be as much redness as last time in general, donor not looking too bad either considering the amount of grafts taken but scarring still noticeable at this length. Acceptable to go out in public at this point though.

Going to be hard in a few days when the shedding starts

1 night. Next day you come into the clinic for a wash etc, then most head off after 2 pm (they set this as a minimum).

Swelling doesn't get bad until about 3 days, by then I was already home. Similar situation with donor pain in my case, was fairly bad up until about 8 days which I took pain killers for. I'd recommend getting yourself a comfortable neck pillow if you opted for a procedure, the clinic give one but its a blow up that tends to deflate after a while. Just a constant worry not to itch your grafts while you're sleeping the first few days, the pain also annoying too up until about 8.
