  1. The crown doesnt look bad enough yet to make a real difference. Up front maybe 1500, possibly up to 2000.
  2. The amount of hair you have throughout the balding area is equivalent to something like 3000 grafts spread across 200cm2. You will need a bout 2.5-3 times this to have full coverage. I certainly think the back of the donor looks decent and think you should go with a more cautious approach of say 2500 in the front half of your head. All existing hairs appear weak and may not survive the surgical process. Even if they don't they will eventually fall to MPB. The 2500 can start dense and then fade towards the crown. If it all turns out well then you can go back for another 2000 or so to fill in the rest, and/or make a few adjustments. 5000 in one go is just too risky.
  3. Are you Asian? I see a lot of Asians who have quite low density, sticky-out (straight) hair, which can be confused with balding. Straight hair makes the scalp more visible, especially at short lengths.
  4. Hairline height looks ok. They have done you a favour as a low hairline could look like a hair system given that your temporal points are quite weak. You have to wait and see how it looks grown out as high hairlines look their highest when buzzed short.
  5. I saw a Cinik advertisement at Goodison Park (Everton) just like this, earlier in the season.
  6. Your donor looks quite lacking in density on the sides. On top you would need around 8000 grafts to get full coverage to around 50% original density. Try to get your donor evaluated by a top doctor in person.
  7. I obviously prefer the Konior hairline as I think it fits my skull shape better. Some Hasson ones are very similar but the ones he sometimes does that are 'convex shaped' (if you get what I mean) aren't to my personal taste. I think Dr K balances certainty of growth over density and looks to preserve the donor area. Mine could be a little bit denser for sure (if I chose to hit the area again) but it's reassuring to still have lots of donor left in the bank. There are of course a number of other pros: responds personally to emails; does all the extractions himself; does a bespoke incision for every single graft (although a tech inserts the graft) - that results in the clean post operative appearance and minimal scalp blood loss; also a board certified facial plastic surgeon so very skilled with scars etc. You cant really go wrong with either and I'd say go Hasson if you prefer his hairlines.
  8. About 750 each side for the first option and 500 for the second.
  9. If you were 35-40 a doctor might be persuaded to lower the hairline 1cm, but as things stand: no chance. You basically have a hairline where doctors would start if you were restoring from a fairly advanced pattern, say NW4+. At 25 they would probably agree to fill in those weak areas near the corners, but that's about it.
  10. I know what you mean. Mine was more or less shaved and I didn't like the look for the first 6 weeks or so. Got to take the rough with the smooth I guess. Did you have FUE this time? I looked back at your blog and see you were basically a NW5.
  11. 12 weeks and 3 days post op. Things are looking quite good and there are fine hairs coming through, though not easy to see from the pic. Should look a lot better in another 3 months.
  12. It's a Detangling Brush: https://www.lookfantastic.com/tangle-teezer-the-original-detangling-hairbrush-original-black/10796067.html?affil=thggpsad&switchcurrency=GBP&shippingcountry=GB&shoppingpid=SS_22_STASH_0504&thg_ppc_campaign=71700000048706512&adtype=pla&product_id=10796067&gclid=Cj0KCQjwmpb0BRCBARIsAG7y4zZPOzx-6uROu68SNBC3Rh_AGUrKIGuWHRf4H5VjShjE4IBLu1IFRkQaAjwAEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
  13. It took about 6 months for the scar to fill in about 90%, then maybe another 4 or 5 for the final 10%. Basically it should follow the same trajectory of transplanted hairs.
