1 year ago to the day, went under the scalpel and have been very happy with my results. Getting compliments on my appearance and hairline both from people who know about my surgery and also from those who don't.
August 28, 8 months post op. Hair continues to fill in and I'm happy with the progress. The untransplanted area is more conspicuous as the front third grows out, which shows progress and at the same time makes me want to work on that area next. My appearance has improved markedly in my opinion and the reception I am getting from friends, family and strangers affirms my decision to have the work done.

Hair continues to fill in and has really exceeded my expectations so far. Hoping for more results over the next 3-6 months, but so far I'm thrilled. I've been getting compliments on looking younger, although only a few people have noticed my hairline but have not attributed it to a hair transplant; I kept only a very select few people in the loop.
So all of the worry and hand wringing after a long 2-3 months was not necessary.
Month 4 is almost in the books, and I'm starting to really see some progress, just like everyone on these blogs said. My hairline is much improved, still quite thin in direct sunlight, but so much better after just 4 months. I can actually wear it so that i need a comb or brush and put some product in it.
I feel like time is moving backwards. Where I see thinning, I just think positive thoughts because I know i
So I thought this would be a good time for an update and document with some photos as this is hopefully the jumping off point now that I hit the two month mark this week.
Two months have passed, so now it's time for some hair to grow! There has been some activity, some little sprouts coming through the formerly barren soil that was my scalp. There is still some noticeable discoloration to the recipient area, so I'm hopeful that eventually this fades. I have fairly light skin and it gets
Hello to anyone who is following,
so I'm at the 3-4 week period following surgery. Part of me still can't believe I went through with it. All of the things I have read are true. Shedding, almost looking like I did pre surgery etc. Really excited though because I clipped my horseshoe hair and front with a number 2 setting on the clippers and things are looking good. My donor areas don't look that bad any more, they are starting to grow in as the doctor had previously shaved those in for surgery
So it is day 10, January 8th.
Redness is gone, lots of crusts which are coming off with neosporin treatment 30 minutes to an hour before shampooing. My daughter commented on how it looks like I have a sh*t load of hair now, which is nice to hear. You know how blunt and honest kids can be! However, concerned and stressing over the donor area scar. Had stitches removed day 7 as per doctor instructions, but a clear line is present on one of the sides of my head. My hair was pretty short going in
I copy pasted the last 3 paragraphs of my profile to start this blog:
On December 28th I had a face to face consult, with surgery scheduled for the 29th. I was nervous about coming from out of state and not having a chance to consult other than photos, emails and phone conversations. But I felt that the evidence weighed in my favor and so I moved forward. The procedure wasn't painless, but my comfort was monitored and my pain was managed. I have posted before pictures and some same day and f
