  1. Thanks everyone! For anyone like me who stalked this site for years looking at results and contemplating a procedure, I say DO IT. It changes so much.
  2. Yes extremely happy! It couldn't have been any better. No crown work done. I'm sure that's coming in a few years. As I grow it out I've started to put some gel in and comb it up. It's so crazy I haven't been able to do that in 15 years.
  3. It's been a slow gradual growth from the start. You really don't even notice a change that much until you do something with pictures like that and remember how bad it was. I feel great. Everything is just how I thought it would be. No complaints so far!
  4. 5 Months in! I have some hair spray in...fuller with dry hair. I can now cut down to a 4 and there is no visible scar.
  5. 3 Month update........ It's funny because the dreaded "ugly duckling" phase never really hit me. I feel like shortly after the procedure, I simply went back to looking exactly like I did pre-op. I went back to work and honestly didn't even think about it. Now I am hitting 3 months, and am starting to notice some early growth. It's far from thick, but with a comb I can make it look better than pre-op. Can't wait for the coming months to see what happens.
  6. Look's great! It's funny how getting a little more hair suddenly gives motivation to work out. I'm a month post op and have started running and lifting like never before. It's like we finally have a real goal in sight with a new self image.
  7. Yup!!! It's almost gone. Funny how that happens. It's definitely gradual...but noticeable. I also just shaved my hair down to a 5 attachment. I'm basically back to pre-op now with minor redness and slightly visible scar line.
  8. I'm a little over 3 weeks and have a question. I don't think I have shed anything yet. Don't you typically shed within the first few weeks? Does it just hit all at once or is it a gradual shed?
  9. I am 2 weeks post op and with it being summer, wondering about the effects of sunlight. At what point is it safe to let some sun on your head? I also tend to burn easy...would even a slight burn damage anything to the new hair sites and prevent growth? I haven't shed anything yet, but know it is coming, and want to know how long I have to obsessively protect my head.
  10. I have no clue. I was planning on going back to Charlotte to get them out so they could look at everything too. I'm probably just being overly cautious.
