Outstanding result so far and you know it's still going to get better as the new hair matures. You must be over the moon with your decision to go get the 2nd pass.

Yo Mav!

Yes, I really really am pleased that I went and got round two done. Just brushing / sliding my palm up along my forehead and into the hairline, I can feel a lot more hair packed in there.

And being that it's only just over 4 months, those "new hairs" are only about a quarter-inch to half-inch long right now.

"Rev333" on this forum was helpful in explaining to me via PM that the hair restoration process is just that: a process. So, one and done isn't really to be expected. I understand what he means/meant now. So, if you're reading this @rev333, thank you.

I'll also keep you and your advice in mind when/if I ever need to get my mid-scalp done.

What I found the most impressive:
- It looked so natural after the first procedure
- Now it looks fuller but before it was just as natural (men in his 40s with very mild loss vs. men with no loss).

How comes? Is this skill of the surgeon or your fine hair with the right color. Especially very dark, thick hair (like main) gives great coverage but appears always "artheficial" when slicked back.

If I would look as natural as you, I would pull the trigger immediately.
Well, I can only speak of how things are/went according to my experience -- i.e., my hair type, my surgeon, my age, my hair color....

Round one was very natural for a few reasons (in my opinion):

1. I chose Dr. Rahal and I chose FUT, in an area of the head that he is one of the best (if not the best) in the world -- my frontal third.

2. I have FINE hair caliber, which gives a subtle, refined, delicate, non-harsh, non-abrupt look at the hairline.

3. My hair is salt 'n pepper color, which goes well with my fair/medium skin tone.

EVEN when I had it dyed black however, it looked very natural at the hairline -- so, throwing out #3 above, you have (#2 above) my fine hair caliber, plus (#1) Rahal's unrivaled artistry with 1 hair FU's in the hairline, and 2 hair FU's just behind the hairline.

It doesn't hurt that I'm 42, able to "afford 4000+ grafts upfront" from a follicle availability standpoint, that I'm on finasteride, and that I was gifted intact temple points.

- Hope this helps answer your Q's @gasthoerer

Mate in the words of the youngster's these days "that is sick". Considering where you were and where you are now, i'm speechless.

I have to admit i am using your result (i shouldn't even call it a result as you still have a lot of growing and maturing to go yet!) to convince others that they should consider a HT. Everyone i have shown is blown away by your result. One girls response was "f#ck me, i want to marry him"

Enjoying quite a wall of hair in my hairline. Hard to explain how nice it feels. I had just an "island dollup" of a forelock when this all started.

This pic is my WEAKER side too. So pleased and only 4.5 months post-op round 2. :-)

I've had so many self debates over the years on whether to get a transplant or not. And i finally reach a spot where i'm comfortable saying no, it's not really for me. Let nature take it's course. Move on, accept and forget it. Then i see a result like this and i'm immediately back to square one with the debate again. Sigh...

What a fantastic result. Honestly, it looks like you're at native density or maybe even better.

If i knew i could get this kind of result, i'd be in the chair in a minute.

Congrats!

RG71,

Just looked and saw that you're 46 and a nw2. If this is true, send me a PM. If you're not opposed to FUT, my advice may help you with the mental tennis you're playing about getting an HT or not getting an HT.

Read my entire first thread and send me a message if you'd like. Full disclosure: I represent only me and truly wanna help. I'm not paid $ by anyone. I just know EXACTLY what you're debating about in your head
