You still have at least 7 1/2 months in front of you.
Thanks for your comments Spyk777. I followed your journey and you have great results. I'll just try to keep calm and carry on for the next couple of months. I imagine a lot of folks are nervous since we've all shelled out on the investment.

Spyke, did you see continued growth even after 6 months?

How's it coming? What is the aloe Vera for and where are you applying it?
I asked Dr diep if I should use aloe Vera but he said putting anything on your head could potentially increase the chances of infection or folliculitis. Thoughts?

Thanks for the question Renovanity. I was told very early on by one of his staff that aloe vera was okay to use. However, I immediately stopped using it once I spoke to Dr. Diep a few days later for my 1-month check-in (probably used it for a few days then stopped). I never saw any reaction or folliculitis and have only washed it since then. No products other than finasteride.

I have a skype check-in on Wednesday to check-in on my progress and any issues that he may be concerned with. I'll post an update after the appointment.

Default Post 5 months

At 5 months post-op, I'm feeling a lot more optimistic.

It's no lie that the hardest part about surgery is having "patience." I'll update in another month.

Just the tip of the iceberg my friend at 5 months is not even half of the growth, that's why they say patience is a virtue I reckon this will be the last we'll hear from you, you'll probably forget about balding and never return, I hope you do keep us updated congrats!

6-month update

I feel good so far regarding the growth. It's still in the beginning stages as the hair is still growing out patchy, but I can tell the new recipient hair has been going through its natural shedding cycle and beginning to curl like the rest of my hair. (As long as I see a white bulb at the end of the follicle I'm good)

I submitted a couple of pictures to give you a good idea of the density as is now with the patchy growth, and also a few others for how I style it when I go out. Hoping to see more growth as I reach 10 months, and more density around the temples.










Also, thanks HTsoon!

Looks good, but if you cut your hair short, then your density will not be as good. I too had a procedure done with this Doctor, and I got horrible results, poor planing, not enough grafts, and $11 an hour technicians working on my head.
