  1. Thanks for the responses.
  2. I see why you mean. If my hair loss got to a nw4+ there's no way I'd bother playing catch up. And that's the problem I'm debating. I'd get a touch up if my hair stabilizes and doesn't go past a 3. If it does I'm not willing to go through multiple procedures.
  3. I see what you're saying. But I'm confused as to why you brought it up. Was it to say that shaving my head now is an option instead of getting further procedures because I'm still a low NW?
  4. I had buzzed my head to a no. 1/2 prior on a couple of occasions. Didn't mind the look at all. The problem now is that if I do it now the slight hair textures may look a bit noticeable I had work done.
  5. I am debating whether to get a touchup down the road. A part of me wants to just live my life not thinking about anymore procedures as there is still a decent amount of down time and ugly duckling phase even for a small procedure. At the same time my hair loss so far has been very slow and a touch up down the road might possibly be the last as well.
  6. I'm three years post op and after a shower it still is Pinker than the surrounding skin. It subsides and you can't see it under regular circumstances but if I were to shave my recipient area, I'm betting the skin tone would be definitely different. On a side not. I went off minox for a few days one time and noticed the pinkness was almost not present. Not sure if minox has anything to do with the lingering pinkness due to the extra capillaries that produced after the recipient incisions we're made. Worst case, I'm likely going to try v beam down the road if I decide to shave the recipent area and not go for additional procedures
  7. Where is this guy these days anyways. ... 🤔
  8. Since some may be interested. Three year update. Under different angles and lighting. Flash not used in any though. Sorry as I only had time to take the pics in selfie mode so quality is super HD.
  9. Seems like all of you are more concerned than the person with the results.... Doesn't look good, but placing transplanted hairs in between native hairs is always risky as the result is also dependant on the native hairs sticking around. The best cases imo are the ones that are on a completely bald area. At least it's predictable. But the case is disappointing, nevertheless.
  10. With that punch size, anything under s number 2 guard, you'll likely see the dots. Dr diep is known to use larger punches and it really shows. ... The post op photos of his work is always pretty bloody. Hope it works out for you. I know I'm not gonna be the only one that's says I don't think you needed a ht.
  11. With my donor I can shave it down to a number 1 without issue. I will never be able to shave it slick without the scars being seen in the donor but I don't plan on ever shaving my head to the bone. To answer your first question, the skin bumps from the hair is not normal. I look at my native hair and there isn't any bumps at the base of the shaft. My results aren't as bad as others as it's not every single graft that resulted in the chicken skin texture but probably around 25%. It's not that noticeable but if I shaved my recipient area you would notice it. Whether the avg person would even notice, I'm not sure, but I do and that's what really matters. I do notice that when I pluck out the transplanted hair, the texture is a lot better in that it almost flattens out, so that is a good sign. Having the hair laser removed my solve the texture issue as it could be the hair shaft causing the skin at the base of the shaft to tent a bit. As for my redness. Again it's not bad but you will be able to see it for sure if I shaved down my recipient area. I am however very glad that there is the option of the v beam to reduce or even eliminate the lingering pinkness. End of the day, I am glad there are options and I'm glad my procedure was a small one. But I will say that knowing what I know now, I wouldn't have had the procedure done. My out was always to shave the recipient and cal it a day if my hairloss progressed, as I didn't think the ht would cause permanent colour and or skin texture issues. I don't blame anyone but myself for not doing more research. The results I received from my procedure was excellent, and I want to be clear that there was nothing negative about the results I received from my procedure. All I'm really saying is that I never intended to have more than this one small procedure, and because of that, I shouldn't have had it done.
  12. Have you considered having the transplanted hairs permanently removed via Laser?
  13. How many grafts did you get from Dr bhattis procedure? Donor looks pretty good for having 4k+ taken out via fue. Do you have a link for your first procedure?
  14. Harry. Did you notice improved skin texture after plucking the hairs out? I noticed that the hair root and shaft of the transplanted hair actually causes some skin irregularities. I once plucked one hair out and within a couple days the skin that used to around that hair that used to look goose pimplish, flattened out. Also I am so happy for you that you found something that works. Two years after my ht I still have some pinkness. It is nowhere near as bad as some, and not as noticeable as yours. It is good to know I have an out if I do decide to shave my head and remove my transplanted hairs if my hairloss progresses. Even before your post I researched and believed v beam would be my best bet. Really appreciate your post.
