  1. The first 4 are 3 months, the rest are 4.5, thanks for the advice should I only use nizoral once weekly then ?
  2. So I haven't posted on here in a while because for me it's hard to not constantly check and see other peoples results who are doing better then you and wonder why my own was lacking, but since 2 months things have gotten much better and while I am happy with my results so far I still would like a lot more from it, I also recently notice I had slight seborrheic dermatitis which I don't think has effected my grafts but is obviously not good. I will post pictures of it and if anyone could give me some advice on what to do to treat it I'd be very grateful, I am currently using nizoral 2-3 times a week. I will post pictures from 3 months and yesterday which was just over 4 1/2 months.
  3. Tomorrow will be 2 months 1 week so as I am off today I though I would post an update and pictures. Things have been running pretty smoothly I have had quite abit of itchiness and a few spots I think I have one at the moment but they are to be expected. My normal hair is growing normally and I'm not sure if the transplanted hair is growing now as well or not just trying to not think about it and hopefully be past looking terrible. So he are my update photos.
  4. Hi BeHappy I was thinking a similar thing because the hairs under my chin are so thick like they are huge and there's so many of them, but i know Dr Koray Erdogan doesn't do bht so I'd have to do some research into who the best is !. Would definitely consider it though.
  5. Thank you mate, I don't know if hanging on to the hairs is good or not I mean it probably looks better but I don't know if they grow out or if they shed and then, who knows we will soon find out. You might start growing yours back before I do. Yeah the spots suck I've been getting huge ones in my donor but I'm sure it will stop soon ?
  6. Hi hkuser The redness is almost completely gone now I think, but you are right my native hairs are growing really slow on top done a number 3 on the back and sides because I looked like a crazy scientist just hair going out in different directions so I think I'll keep it short for now.
  7. Hey buddy looking good ! I had a similar thing with my vertex I had quite a few I was just told it's a good sign of healing and to just leave them and don't scratch them and mine went after a week or so, so don't worry to much, I hit my head there quite a few times nothing major but you know uncomfortable nudge getting in my car sort of hit, and I didn't have any pop or bleed so it should be fine l.
  8. Just thought I'd do a quick post at 5 weeks, I've shed quite a few hairs but some remain or have started growing wondered what some of you thought to this? I'll post pictures of both temples which were previously bald. Also had quite a few spots in my donor which are a bit sore and itchy but nothing major.
  9. Hi Vpac I hope you are right, just need to get through the next few months and hopefully should be looking better. To be honest with you I didn't know about the "keep" tool until after I had been, I was pretty gutted that I hadn't had it used on me if it was supposed to be better but I done some looking around and saw on the Facebook page someone was asking on the video Asmed posted about the keep tool asking when they were starting to use it and I'm sure Asmed replied saying they have been using it for a year now so perhaps it was used on you too ?. I might be wrong. You are right Dr Koray does the incisions and then the techs did the implantations, strangely enough some people posted saying there were on there from for the crown implants but I was always in an upright position. I don't know if that makes any difference what so ever but yeah hope I could help and congrats and your results so far !. How many grafts did you done ?
  10. So I'm about 1 month post op now, feeling like I'm in the ugly duckling phase. I've shed a lot of hairs but still got a few more to go. It's a little bit itchy but nothing to bad, I have also posted a picture of my crown from before my hair transplant as the pictures I've posted don't show that area very well.
  11. I had been trying to do it daily I just didn't know how often I should apply it like maybe once in the morning once at night ?. Also wondered if I could get some opinions on secound hand smoking like I have been avoiding all smokers but where I work in a garage everyone smokes and occasionally it's near me so I get a big cloud of smoke in my face, will this effect my grafts?
  12. Well thank you for making me feel better about it haha very wise words. I'm sure you will have an amazing result to buddy. The itching only lasts until the scabs are gone so only another week !. I just keep getting little bits of weird pain in random places ATM and my donor is still abit sensitive, when you start touching the hairs and sleeping on your normal pillow it gets a lot better though for sure.
  13. Hi Deb1982 Guess I'm just lucky ! Haha I think he did me quite a good deal on the room aswell as I stayed at the clinic for all 3 nights I don't think my total bill was as much as I expected. From the pictures I put it it doesn't look to bad I forgot to upload the ones I had from the USB that they give you but I'll post them later when I get home from work. I had quite abit of loss in the crown I think it's just because of how long my hair was when I went you can't see it very well, I had quite a lot of minitirization also so I'm happy I got the 2000 in the crown. I have been keeping up with your posts aswell your work looks great I'm jealous of how many grafts you had In the front but I think your hairline was lowered a lot more then mine ? I just hope 3000 is enough!, also oh man my donor was itchy mine was so sensitive for days it was hard to sleep on it with that bloody pillow, I also had a ton of itchiness in my recipient area aswell was driving me mad !.
  14. Hi Finn Well before I went I was worried that 4500 wasn't going to give the result I wanted and I thought to myself I might aswell ask if I can do the max and this would be better, so I took the extra cash I had and I came up like ?350 short I asked if I could transfer it straight across when I went to my room but by the time I have left the finance office Dr Koray erdogan said he was happy I trusted him and his judgement and didn't charge me the extra ?350.
  15. Hi David Thank you for the kind words, I hope you are right ! and I will keep everyone posted ?
