Default Donor area shaved all the way down after HST

Hello guys,
Before going into the HT path, i was always looking for pics of shaved donor areas post HTs since i always keep my hair buzzed and all i needed is to work on the midront and hairline for now to frame my face since my hair line was almost completly gone, but i never found a post with detailed post op donor pics which made me always hesitate to move forward. after alot of research i was convinced that HST is for me and went for it, below is how my donor look like post op, I had 2080 graft done.... All pictures were taking with 12 megapixel cam with flash:

1) Pre op - teken in the clinic after they shaved my donor before op:




2) Post op - in the clinic, right after HST:


3) One week post op - before any haircut:



4) Almost 5 weeks post op (with clippers with no guard, the shortest you can go before razor):

Thanks for sharing! I think we're all eager to see an HST result unfold from start to finish.

Are you planning on sharing any images of the implantation site?

Very cool! Please give us more details like how the hairline was designed(conservative or low), Gho's waiting times for procedure and any other details please.

I'd also like to follow your progress from start to finish. Do you have pics from the front? Do you have pre-op pics of your hair before shaving down?

This is how my hairline looks like:



Waiting time was initially around 7 months but i was on waiting list and got an appointment earlier, so all i had to wait was around 2 months.

Definitely. However, I was simply wondering what the immediate post-operative, implanted front looked like.

Additionally, from the research I've conducted, it seems like HST results mature slightly faster than FUT/FUE results (allegedly), so it will be interesting to see what you look like around the 4 month mark.

Nice. Do you plan on keeping a shaved head real low? To be fair, and it is only 5 weeks I can see the scarring (and I can't tell if it is scarring I am seeing or just the gaps of missing hair), but I was looking for it. I don't think anyone would notice. Very very good looking donor area, probably the cleanest I've seen. This looks like a nice procedure for someone that wants to share their head to a zero but wants a hairline.
