  1. It's just over 6.5 months now. A lot of hair has sprouted, but it still looks quite thin and whispy. I'm only half way there, so hopefully it will thicken up in the months to come!
  2. Just over 3.5 months now and something seems to be happening. There are quite a few sparse, wiry hairs sprouting up which looks strange, but it's exciting nonetheless. There seems to be a lot more growth on my right temple than my left, but after reading a few threads here I know that's not abnormal and nothing to worry about. So far the only person who has noticed anything is my barber.
  3. Correct, I'm not expecting anything drastic for a while yet. I'm just documenting it regularly even at this early stage for others to reference.
  4. 7 months today. Nothing much to report. There are a few straggly hairs in the transplanted area, and it's still a little red. Nobody has mentioned they have noticed anything, even people I would expect to do so.
  5. I believe that a lot of it has shredded. Hopefully it will grow to the desired thickness beginning in a few months.
  6. 5 weeks. I thought it would be undetectable by now, but I guess I just need to be patient.
  7. Three weeks in and believe the shed is happening. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted. Now it's time to practice the least glamorous of virtues, patience.
  8. Am I correct that a lot of the implanted hair has not shed in your case? My understanding is that usually almost all implanted hair sheds by this stage, and then begins to grow at around the three month mark. Are you one of the lucky ones who has avoided the major shed?
  9. Yes I've been pleasantly surprised about the lack of redness. There's still a little bit of redness but it's very faint. I've seen reviews where the patient had a red scalp up to a few months afterwards, and that's what I was expecting due to my fair skin. I don't know if I'm one of the lucky ones or if it's because of Dr Bhatti's skills.
  10. This is what it looks like after two weeks, front area and donor area.
  11. I had my procedure with Dr Bhatti the day before you, and it looks like you're progressing about the same as I am. Good luck and I'll be interested to see your updates.
