Lightbulb One Year Post OP

Hi everybody, I took pics of my hairline using a clear Sony Cypershot camera with no flash of my hairline combed backward without using any hair product. I do still think that my hairline density is below 50 fu/cm2 for sure but I guess this is it. Right now I'm focusing on a scar revision and some temple points restoration along with a small touch up of my thin areas in hairline. Check out my photos and tell me your honest opinions, my hairline density should have become 53% according to the 2500 grafts distribution of the clinic. However the bright side is that I'm now a normal human and no longer a freak.

I think it looks really good overall. Not super dense, but it looks very natural........huge improvement for you. If you get your scar revision and have sufficient grafts, you could make it look a little thicker, but I would not have a procedure done just to thicken it of it were me. Who are you planning to go to for a revision?

Hair has definitely improved Hariri.

You are a repair patient so that does have to be taken into consideration.

It is very hard to actually say'have I got x amount of grafts per cm^2' just by looking.

I wouldn't know personally with my hair how many I had but my hair looks great.

Unless you are going to take numerous random samples of your hair and take an average, you sort have just have to go off expert judgement.

Your hair looks great! HUGE improvement from the pre-op pics. Like you said, you're normal now. It may not be 100% perfect (because hair greed has set in!) but you don't look like a balding man anymore.

One quick question for you....Spex asked a question earlier in the thread and I don't think you responded. Are you considering having those hairs below your hairline lasered? I think that would actually help make your existing hairline look even better and make everything look cleaner.

BadBeat, I mentioned earlier in the middle of my thread that I was planning to go Feriduni to FUE out the bad grafts and get a scar revision of the old scar at the back of my head plus whatever grafts extracted will go into my weak right area of my hairline (300 grafts + hairline extracted old grafts) plus temple points (300 grafts) from the estimated 600 grafts coming with the scar tissue. Have I answered your question?

If you want to know your average Graft count per cm square it's not hard just draw on a cm square and get someone to count the grafts or hairs it would be easy at the front of your head. one thing to bear in mind is if it is the very front that bothers you then obviously that will be made up of single hair grafts and I've heard surgeons say before singles have less chance of survival compared 2s and multis.

I think it looks decent considering you're a repair patient though.

Hariri, I'm sorry to bring this thread up again but I'm new to the party and have just spent 30 minutes reading through this for the first time.

It must be tough being a repair patient, but you honestly don't look like one now even without the nanogen.

So glad you got a resolution in the end. You are looking good, Even if you don't have any more treatments you are in a good place.

Take care, Modenese

Thank you for the kind words Modenese. I will at Bisanga chair in 2014 for real FUE job. Im just waiting for the strip scar revision of my old scar and FUE out the hair under the new hairline that Rahal that unfortunately didnt or forgot to remove back in 2011 (around 200 grafts).

I wish I was never cut and never stripped. A strip scar is a very annoying thing
