  1. 6 Months I'll probably not bother posting further updates until 12 months otherwise they will all be a bit samey. 100% satisfied with the outcome.
  2. Yeah, I agree. He could have just said that he 'met with a recommended doctor who told me...".
  3. No, it all looks fine and appears to have healed well. It will look bumpy like that for a couple of months at least.
  4. If you're a NW6 you likely have say 300cm2 bald area. Prior to balding you might have had 200 hairs/cm2, so 60,000 hairs have disappeared. To get you back to square one would take 60,000 / 2.2 ~ 30,000 grafts assuming 2.2 hairs per graft. But as we know, most people can only spare 6-8,000 from their donors. Judicious placement of grafts will therefore be needed. 40 grafts /cm2 is recognised as good density of 40 x 2.2 = 88 hairs/cm2, which is roughly half (50%) your original density. But to cover 300cm2 like this would require 300 x 40 = 12,000 grafts. So you have to mix your densities to make best use of those 6-8,000 available. For example maybe 50 in the hairline, 30 mid scalp and only 15 to 20 in the crown.
  5. Looks like your hair is of decent thickness/caliber so no doubts you will get some solid results from this!
  6. It doesnt look bad and if transplanted and grown out it could provide a good amount of coverage. I think there is a guy on here who went to Dr Maras who has similar hair to yours. He was positing in the last week or so about getting his crown done.
  7. I don't see why a little extra density could not be added. Maybe use the same doc as before and certainly one that operates on only one patient a day.
  8. Slim to no chance of a refund. You may get a discount on future procedures but not much else. You just need more grafts and have likely lost more native hair. Top down shots are always the least flattering.
  9. Unfortunately extractions were not spread out enough. For someone aged 40 and with mostly frontal loss, the doctor could have afforded to use a wider area.
  10. Looks fine. The shadow effect is from very fine hair breaking the surface. Over time that will thicken up considerably. I can't see there being any problems from here on in.
  11. Much of the hair that is left is of low quality so I'd forget about trying to cling on to it. It provides no cosmetic effect and is of very low density. All those doctors mentioned are good although some I would only recommend for FUT, which is probably what you need anyway.
