  1. Hey guys, will be two months this weekend so will post a full update on Sunday but wanted to let you guys know that the recovery period for a second transplant is so much easier and has little impact on your appearance. At only two months I can already style the hair and have had no need to wear a hat or hide away like I did first time round. A few of you messaged me asking about this and as you can see all of my pre op hair is growing as normal. Can't wait to see what it looks like when all the new hairs start to sprout.
  2. If you aren’t happy then you aren’t happy and I’m not going to dispute that but I think your hair in the second and third photo looks amazing. Looking at where you started I would say it is an amazing cosmetic improvement. Your frontal lock looks very dense. I like you wanted a little more density in the hairline. I guess i’ll find out what the outcome of mine is in a few months. Considering you are four years post op I personally think it’s looks great.
  3. I had an unbelievable result. Only 7 weeks out from my second op so have to wait and see!
  4. I started drinking alcohol again after 10 days following both my procedures and I see no reason why it would be an issue. I had a few big nights with friends and saw no ill effects. Lots of other foods and medicines thin the blood so I'm sure it's fine.
  5. Look at my photos from month 6. Mine was exactly the same. Give it another 4 months and then you should have a much better idea of where you are going to end up.
  6. He is legit. He is one of the best FUE surgeons out there. Payam is referring to his practice. The question is he a legit doctor is a resounding yes. Do your research before you decide which doctor you want to choose. If you want a procedure that is largely performed by the doctor then I would suggest he is not for you. He doesn't try to hide the fact he is tech driven. I'm not saying there aren't some results of late that need to be reviewed but Asmed easily get the most coverage on this forum so I would expect there to be more negative reviews. There are more good reviews. Many of the positive posters stop posting once they are happy with their growth where as the unhappy ones will always carry on making their case. It is the way reviews work.
  7. 1 Month Post Op Hit the one month mark and got the sides and back of head shaved to a 0.5 grade purely to see if more scars would be visible but I’m please to say it really doesn’t look any worse than before which I’m really happy about. I’ve finished my shed now. Not seeing anymore hairs falling out. I’ve definitely experienced a bit of shock loss in the crown as you can see. No redness, pain or spots anymore either. Just a waiting game for my hairs to reappear. Appearance wise i’m happy going out as I am. Will switch to monthly updates now.
  8. Density wise, I found the biggest changes occurred between month 7 to 10. I think you'll have a brilliant result given where you are currently at. It will continue to improve for months to come, don't sweat it.
  9. 4 Weeks Post Op My shedding seems to have slowed down massively. Not seeing any hairs in the shower when I wash my hair. It does look a little thinner all over now but mainly in the crown area. If this is the extent of my shed and shock loss, I will be very happy. Last time round I looked my worse around 6-7 weeks so still have a bit of time till then. Donor area looks decent in my opinion.
  10. The new grafts will shed (fall) and in about 3 months they should reappear. What will not shed (fall) will be the original hair although some of this can fall due to shock from the procedure although this will return.
  11. Here these are my 5 month pics against my 12 months pics. Month 7,8 and 9 were game changers for me.
  12. I would choose 1 day as well. I found day 2 to be very difficult mentally and physically. The recovery time I experienced from a 1 day surgery to a 2 day was massive.
  13. She did 23 incisions just to clear up your inaccurate statement. Dr Erdogan did 2500 incisions but I had 23 surplus grafts.

    ASMED 7 months on

    A million times better from where you started and when styled it looks brilliant but I agree when pushed back it looks a little thin. You didn't just have a hairline case though and you did have 3000 over 70 cm2 which is about 40 grafts per cm2. Saying that I still think you should have had a bit more density in the hair line than what you ended up with. Pass them across to Asmed and see what they think? You did have quite a lot of miniaturization in the recipient area. Are you on Fin? From my own experience I was only able to pull off the side combed look following my first procedure as well. I had 3200 grafts into the same region as you.
  15. Couldn't agree more. I wouldn't have gone ahead with my procedure if it wasn't Dr Erdogan making the incisions.
