Here are my pics with Dr. Wong. My first hair transplant. 1550 grafts.
First 3 pics are before any transplant. That's all the area I had to cover.
Next 3 pics are hair transplant from Dr. Wong Day 1.
Next 5 pics are 6 month results from Dr. Wong HT.
Last 3 are the 1 year results from Dr. Wong. There wasn't good growth in the right side (the side where most of the grafts were placed). So they did 2 touch ups of total 670 grafts
OK I think the pics above might have given a much worse impression of the hairline than it is. Yes it is not dense at all, but I didn't lose the previous hairline of Dr.Wong. Those hair are still there as far as I can tell. Dr. Suneet lowered the hairline so much that it looks like I've lost hair where I had before. But I don't think that's the case. The shock loss hair have come back. There is definitely more hair than before and people have said it looks better than before. I just have to wear my hair long and cover the front from the hair at the back and it looks normal. Anyways I'm still extremely unhappy with this result. I'm posting some more pics from today. 6 months 1 week today. Also I think there may be a little more growth in the coming months, but not much. Even with Dr. Wong the hair grew very slow and looked pretty bad at 6 months. And I am not taking finestride because I had sides from it and because my hairloss wasn't from male pattern baldness, it was traction alopecia from wearing a turban and tying my hair tightly. I took 5% rogaine liquid as recommended by Dr. Suneet for the first 4 months, but I started getting baggy eyes and dark circles from it so I stopped doing that. I'm going to start taking 2% rogaine foam. Apparently that has less sides. Anyways these are pics from today and tried to make it look like the first 3 pics for good comparison.
You already look like you've had a decent improvement in the transplanted areas at 5.5 months, despite ultimately having a small amount of grafts. The crown would likely have needed 2500 grafts on its own for full coverage, expecting perfection from a single procedure with what you had would be unrealistic.
Ultimately looks like it should be quite a good result overall though, especially with more improvement to come over the next 3-4 months. The crown can take a bit longer also, for sure you'll have further noticeable improvement from where you are now. 99% of people with both crown and hairline loss don't achieve full coverage in a single procedure.
