  1. This is the 5 month and 1 week update. Some major things: 1. I had a lot of shock loss all over, both the donor and the transplanted area. My donor looked *really* bad and I was honestly afraid to show it all here which is why I am so late with the updates. The donor has recovered to a degree but not all the way. I will post the pics of the donor later, it's really annoying to make the pics and then crop to remove the face etc. 2. I had two haircuts so far with the old hair dresser and he uses #1 on the sides and he didn't mention anything looking off, and it doesn't look off also except that it might be a little thinner on the sides than before but that's hard to confirm. 3. Having the hairline that frames your face and seeing that in the mirror is a great feeling and should be talked about more. Yes it could be denser which you can see when you come close but from 5+ feet away, which is usually what you see in the mirror, it looks good and really makes me happy with the decision. 4. The progression was and is still weird. I never noticed the new hair - I thought it was the old hair as there was really not a lot of it and was thin but eventually it I guess grew thicker. So I guess lots of shock loss if those hairs were all new? Also, still no new, additional hairs on the horizon. Overall I am happy so far but would like more density and I am not sure if that's coming or not. The pics: Front - looks good from about 5+ feet away, to the point that it looks like a full head of hair. When you get closer you can see the lack of density. Top - the area behind the hairline is lacking in density compared to the hairline and it's very obvious here. This doesn't look any better than before the procedure honestly, and might be even worse. I assume it's the shock loss and the majority of hair there is the transplanted hair but who can tell. It's weird how when the hairline is there to frame your face you don't think about what's happening behind it so you don't worry about it as much. Sides look reasonable I guess: Let me know what you think!
  2. I am also eager to hear the status update - hope it's all good @MNIK
  3. They blocked you?? Were you trying to access it from hrn instagram account? This is nuts.
  4. I traveled within US and I was ok. And this was on the busiest day of all last year (Sunday after Thanksgiving). I think traveling is pretty safe since they enforce masks and ventilate. Plus by August I really hope the vaccinations will drastically change the situation, I hope you get vaccinated too by then!
  5. What did he reply? A great, well documented case btw, and a great result. I really like these BHT threads as there is not a lot of them and it gives hope to high Norwoods.
  6. Looks pretty hood honestly. Also you probably don’t have to shave if you do just the crown and FUT? Then the ugly duckling phase is removed and you’d only have to suffer for a couple weeks? Just assuming though, a doctor would know better.
  7. Dude this looks amazing! Happy for you. I am one week away from 3.5 months with the same doctor, I hope it starts turning the corner for me soon as well!
