  1. Hello again, Month 8 is up. Let me know what you think! https://youtu.be/ZJxoOyRuNXs skinandhairdoc.com
  2. Looking better this month. Probably due mostly to a hair cut and some length up top. Hopefully some growth as well! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9_Rq0E2gZM www.skinandhairdoc.com See you next month
  3. Thanks for the encouraging words bro! This month is looking better, but its hard to gauge it since I'm trying to grow it out now. Hard to stay patient, it's probably the worst part. Haha See ya
  4. No real difference from Month 5. If you're bored, I suggest you show up in 3 months! All the best, Andrew www.skinandhairdoc.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFXReNgWFOk&feature=youtu.be
  5. Month 5 and I don't notice much of a change if at all. I'm a little worried at this point, but I'm doing my best to stay patient. I continue to cut it short since it only looks slightly better that way. The scar is still visible at a 3.5 cut length, so I am using Caboki on that and on top at work. Hopefully something happens noticeably within the next 3 months. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyqBx_DXVrU All the best, Andrew www.skinandhairdoc.com
  6. Day 120 is up. Not a noticeable difference from last month. I may be seeing actual hairs pop up but I'm not sure. Its hard to tell if they aren't just the same hairs I noticed coming in and out of shed prior to my surgery. Anyway, I've read around the 6 month mark is will you will see any sort of change. Fingers crossed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Up6FOvDq0iQ All the best, Andrew www.skinandhairdoc.com

    Day (90)

    Hey Empirestate, thank you for your comment and question! I was told approximately between 2500-2700. Mostly in the front with about a 5th of the total grafts placed in the mid to back area. I was originally quoted for about 2300, but Dr. Mejia said they pulled a bit more than planned and he placed them anyway so that was definitely awesome of him. Any other questions feel free to ask! And congratulations on pulling the trigger. Aside from the money portion, the most difficult part is mustering up the courage to have the procedure performed. All the best, Andrew

    Day (90)

    Hello again, Day (90)'s video is up for view. No real news. Confirmation from Dr. Mejia I had some shock loss last week and no real growth yet so I almost look worse than before. Either way, I am hoping the next few months will turn the tide and turn back by time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dK5xFBSkXwo Enjoy, Andrew www.skinandhairdoc.com

    Day (60)

    Holy hell have I had a hell of a month. Some scares from scabs or what I thought were grafts coming from my scalp to working out and seeing a few grafts pool blood to some worry about my scar in a few spots. Anyway, I don't get around to too much of it in this one (I have a bunch of photos and video showing you in depth), but from my 45 day follow up with Dr. Mejia, from his assessment and the rest from what I've read, only time will tell. In the next couple of entries I will likely touch on it more, but in this one you will see I'm right back where I started at this point, with zero growth. I picked up a bottle of Caboki (highly suggest this especially if you shaved your head prior to surgery like I did) to cover it when I work, but I have to say the anticipation is killing me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNTdme8SAso Enjoy, Andrew BTW I am using 5% minoxidil twice a day (morning/night) and ZERO finasteride. skinandhairdoc.com

  12. Thanks Castle, good to know I'm not the only one. Haha, will continue every month on the 21st
  13. I've struggled with male pattern baldness ever since I graduated high school. It started off strong and tapered off in the last few years into more of a gradual process. The photos below will show you how far it has come in the last decade. I will also be posting new videos and blogs each month to document my progress to encourage or discourage anyone from making the plunge that I did. I hope this will help you. Andrew
