  1. Definite improvement since the 2 month mark. Looks good!
  2. Oh sorry. Yes it's 7 weeks, it 7 months.
  3. 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.
  4. I believe that a lot of it has shredded. Hopefully it will grow to the desired thickness beginning in a few months.
  5. 5 weeks. I thought it would be undetectable by now, but I guess I just need to be patient.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. This is what it looks like after two weeks, front area and donor area.
  10. 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.
  11. Yes I'm using both finasteride and minoxidil.
  12. It's day 9 and the scabs are almost all off. Only a couple of small stubborn ones remain. I think it's looking great so far. Dr Bhatti's aftercare routine involves applying shaving foam for five minutes to the recipient area and rinsing it off after day three. This softens up the scabs and they just slide right off. It's quite gratifying! One downside of this whole thing is that I don't like how vain I've become. I can't walk past a mirror without checking myself out and admiring how much better I look with a hairline! This is exactly the problem I was hoping for! I know it will all fall out very soon, but I'm enjoying it while it lasts!
  13. Here is what things look like after one week - front, crown and donor area. The scabs have already mostly fallen off on the crown and are beginning to fall off in the front. I was slightly swollen for two days but that went away quickly. I haven't experienced any pain, although the donor area is annoyingly itchy.
