  1. Hi @rocketmas As far as a compelling reason - I believe you'd have to ask her. When she and I spoke, we discussed the possibility of further recession and the idea that, given my age and the possibility of the need for further procedures, the frontal third should be addressed initially. I can appreciate your desire to knock it all out in one go and, in your case, it might be more appropriate. But, in my case, our strategy made the most sense. I think, with competing consults, the best source of knowledge is the treating doctors because it's my understanding that every case needs a specifi
  2. Thanks for the support, Nick. Dr. Nadimi was great, I didn't get a chance to meet Dr. Konior. I took a look at your thread and it looks like great work. Months 4 through 6 had huge changes for me. I'll keep up to date on your progress. Happy growing!
  3. @brickellmoto I'd rather he didn't I didn't start this thread to get the work done criticized. He's entitled to his opinion. Feel free to have this conversation through PM.
  4. Not styled at all, but this is from today. Interestingly, my hair stylist noticed I had something done. I hadn't been into the shop to see her since before the procedure, i was going in days when she was off, since the procedure. She said it was the best she had ever seen and commented on how good it looked. I'm also including a pre-op (previously posted) and a three month for comparison. Today: Pre-op: 3-Months:
  5. No problem. To answer your questions (sort of) I know she was present for extraction and I believe she was there for all transplanting. I don't remember her ever not being there, but I was out cold for most of it. I think she just uses her judgement in terms of which hairs to use in the hairline (I think mostly - if not all - singles). Also, she mentioned my hair was coarse so that may have been why she distributed the hair like she did. I'm not sure if she sorts by diameter, but I'm really happy with the results at 6 months. I'm under the impression it's going to get better, but it's hard to
  6. Hi, I’ll post some pictures at my seven month. Everything has been going smoothly so far, but I think two month photos rather than one month photos may show a better change.
  7. @Payam She literally just drew it on. I kind of just deferred to her given my complete lack of medical background. I assume she is trained to make these decisions, what looks best, what looks bad, etc. I didn't want to muddy the water with my layman's opinion. She revised it a couple of times, but the entire design process took about 15 minutes.
  8. That’s the impression I got. Here’s a pic from yesterday under much less harsh lighting. Again, about 5.5 months post-op.
  9. Yup. Procedure was on July 20th, 2018. So about 15 days away from 6 months.
  10. Just realized I posted two of the same picture. Here's the third showing the front right side.
  11. Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted. Work's been busy. Here are a few under pretty harsh lighting. Just took them about 5 minutes ago. Procedure was on July 20th, so this is about 5.5 months post op. I think I got a lot of early growth and certainly didn't expect it to fill out so quickly. In harsh lighting (with no styling) still looks a bit thin, but a hundred times better than it did the morning of the procedure. In normal day-to-day light or sunlight, it actually looks significantly better than it does in these pictures, but the hairline looks natural and if I get more growth over the course
  12. Thanks guys. To answer your questions, Nadimi has results at: https://www.realself.com/find/Illinois/Chicago/Otolaryngologist/Sahar-Nadimi and, no, Konior was not around to the best of my knowledge.
  13. Hey guys, today is about, what, 117 days post op? I think Tuesday is four months. Things are going well. I think there was some early growth at about 3 months, but it’s still early. Here’s a pre-op taken about a year ago and then one taken about 115 days post op. Lighting conditions are a little varied but, I think it shows the progress. In better light it looks much fuller, but I’m looking forward to seeing what months four through six bring. It’s definitely moving in a positive direction. No numbness or redness anymore. No post op issues whatsoever. This is also in conjunction with bein
  14. Anyway, getting back to it. Here is one pre-op (taken about a month before procedure - sorry I avoid the camera like the plague - if I can find more, I'll post more). Also, the remaining photos are from today, 7 days post-op.
  15. I understand Gas' input on topic and I can appreciate the fact that it's not his intention to dishearten me or cause me to questions my or my doctor's decisions - particularly because comments of that nature serve no real purpose at this point. Regardless, like I mentioned in my original post, my NW is high with the potential to go higher. I'm on fin and minox to try to stabilize loss. Because of the high NW potential, I want to make the most of my donor supply and not go too dense too quickly and I'm willing to be patient and work with my doctor to get it right. I've seen her results, I
  16. You’re killing me dude. I’m just trying to be helpful here.
  17. Thanks Melvin, I'll keep everyone updated. I think Dr. Nadimi did a great job. The experience was great from start to finish.
  18. I'll add that I think it's safe to say that 99% of what you see on the hairline in the post-op pictures is transplanted hair.
  19. I don't know if any 2s were split, to be honest. I'm going to try and find some pre-op pics - but there was not really any native hair there really. Very little if any.
  20. Just got back from my 6-day post-op check up with Dr. Nadimi. Final numbers are: 1619 grafts 1 hair grafts - 116; 2 hair grafts - 603; 3 hair grafts - 832; 4 hair grafts - 68; Total hairs moved = 4,090; Average hairs per graft = 2.5. I'll post 7 day post op photos tomorrow and I'll try to dig up some pre-op photos as well.
