Breakdown of the grafts implanted.

10 % 1-hair graft
40 % 2-hair grafts
45 % 3-hair grafts
5 % multiple grafts
I'm starting to get my shed too dude! Just keep it shaved short, I think it looks better that way because people just assume you've done the "fuck it, I'm shaving my head thing" without really noticing much hair loss hah - post some update pics too!

Damn.. Sorry to hear that. Would you mind sharing which doctor this was?
How many grafts and what Norwood were you when they operated on you? We'll see how I go.

Yeah man it's opens your eyes to where your hairline REALLY is. I'm getting small pimples, especially around my temple points. But nah I'm not shaving it, the transplanted hair can catch up!

Norwood 4/5. 2900 grafts (I don't believe it, though).

Nice guy but man, it's the technicians who do everything. He's there to draw the hairline and that's it! Like someone else said, you might get lucky (assuming that your particular technician was really gifted) but who's to say the result you see in a success story will get replicated. What's more, they've got nothing to lose.

1 month update. My receded hairline is on full display to everyone now. *sigh*

What's strange is before I had the transplant I would run my fingers through my hair and a few hairs would always fall, now when I pull the short hairs around my hairline & behind the transplanted hair NOT ONE hair sheds. Anyone have an explanation to this?

Only thing different is I'm taking 5000mcg Biotin tablets once a day, and have temporarily stopped using Minoxidil & Nizoral shampoo. I'm getting a lot of dandruff however.

Well he is the only surgeon I've ever come across who does NOTHING but draw the hairline. What does he do all day?? Sits back and rakes in the dosh it seems. Was any kind of compensation offered, repair surgery or partial refund?

6 weeks post OP.

I'm quite fascinated how the recipient area is still red and slightly sensitive.

Nothing is really happening however, have maybe retained 10% of the hairs of my shed.

Default doctor

Can you please say which doctor you went to if your results were not positive. It would be much appreciated.

8 weeks post OP.

Not much happening, a lot of dandruff/dead skin where my native hair & transplanted hair coincide on my old hairline. Using Nizoral once a week for that.

Hopefully new small hairs sprout soon.
