I agree. While your balding seems to be harsh, you are better off waiting a few years to see how much the loss has progressed more so, but in the mean time, you could go to a dermatologist or even an inexpensive online finasteride subscription service get on finasteride to see how well it may help, same goes for minoxidil, and, shave your head to a #1 since hair loss is much more noticeable with long hair, and wear a baseball hat as often as you can, you are young so not out of the ordinary to wear one regularly, you could go the scalp micropigmentation route too or save that cost towards your HT.
Yeah, it’s normal, and after another week or two, you should start shedding most of the rest of the transplanted hairs, then the ugly duckling waiting rest phase, then the start of the growth phase to look forward to by Christmas time....which seems a long way off but now seems to get here faster and faster haha 👍
Looking at your previous thread, your hairline looked OK after your procedure and touch ups with Dr Wong. We’ve seen better from Dr. Wong, but it was not a failure. I agree with JeanLDD- it would be interesting to hear Dr Wong’s opinion on the poor growth.
You’ve lost a lot more of your native hair in your front third over the last few years and what looks to be serious shock loss in the recipient after your latest procedure. Have you been on Finasteride at all since the procedures with Dr Wong?
One last question: it looks like Dr Soni lowered your hairline significantly (1+ cm). Since you’ve had poor growth and density issues in the past, why create a lot more area to cover?
In any case, I truly hope things turn around for you. You’ve had a really rough go of it.
