The surgeon likes to describe himself as conservative so the hairline was designed higher than I would ideally like but he didn’t say anything about how sparse the density would be, I trusted his estimation for the number of grafts and that’s what we went with. I can’t imagine that he intended for it to look like it does, I’m thinking that maybe some of my grafts didn’t take and have died
Frustrating that they haven’t offered any feedback and won’t see me until the full year has passed
My opinion as I probably stated before, give it the complete 18-months time to grow and mature fully before you do any touch-up with any Dr/clinic....the additional 10-months of more improvement could pleasantly surprise you.
Im not a fan of minoxidil, I like things to heal and grow more organically, I wouldn’t start using it if I were you because you could get the minoxidil shed and that will give you even more worry and anxiety.
Im a big fan of taking Biotin and MSM supplements tho....as well as a good strong protein diet.
Edit: Additionally regarding the minoxidil, by not using it, it is useful then for when you go to a consultation with a doctor for they to see your full 18-month result with out any growth assistance from minoxidil so that they could gage just how much of a touch-up you will need.....then, after any touch-up you decide to do... going on minoxidil would be reasonable to me.
