  1. Your hair looks awesome mate. Don't do any further work on the hairline as it suits you. Hopefully finasteride stops or slows the crown loss and you should be ok for a long while
  2. I don't think you've taken enough pics...
  3. Looks very good so far, Are you on meds to slow or prevent further loss?
  4. Congrats Luke Your result looks epIc mate! I'm hoping I will be able to style my hair like yours after any potential surgery. You were more receding than me prior to your HT but your hair looks much better now than mine!
  5. This! I hope Payam resolves this and I will check updates but I don't need to be emailed every time someone replies. I woke up this morning with about 20 email notifications for this thread. I don't even remember subscribing for notifications.
  6. I'm a bit confused. In the pre-op picture it looks as if you have a strong forelock. Yet in the post op pic it looks as though there was no hair in that area and your surgeon filled it in. Can you clarify?
  7. agree with all of this except the part about laser and PRP whose benefits are dubious at best and are both ridiculously expensive
  8. I’d be annoyed as well Payam. Clearly not enough of the grafts have grown (so far) and I think it’s very patronising for people to tell you your expectations were unrealistic. Looking at your immediate post op pics you would expect very good density from that. I would wait a couple of months more though before you assess the final result however. In the meantime I do think you should use toppik or some kind of concealer which will make the result appear thicker and more natural. I don’t se ewhy it’s such a chore as you only need to do it once in the morning. Also get on meds if you are not already. Your pre-op pics show you have good hair on the crown and meds should thicken that up, reducing the need for further work. good luck mate!
  9. If the wedding is a month before your appointment with Diep why can’t you attend the wedding?
  10. payam have you thought about adding concealer to make the result appear thicker? I know ideally you want the result to thicken up but in the meantime it might be an idea. Will make your hair appear thicker and fuller.
  11. Gonna look great when it matures but 3200 grafts seems quite a lot. I would have thought 2000 would have done the job. good luck
  12. Is that Morrissey ?? seriously though, definite improvement on the last photo assuming conditions are similar
  13. Great result Dr Lindsey. His hairline looks awesome. Is he on finasteride? I know you mentioned his crown had got a little thinner, and he appeared to be thinning on top in the before pics, so just wondering if he is on meds or whether he will have to address the crown at some point..
  14. Looks excellent mate. Great hairline
