  1. Appreciate the response! I guess I could try growing it longer on top but I prefer wearing my hair shorter. I've seen a bunch of men who are completely bald in the front after receiving 3K grafts, and it looks like their hair is completely full. I wasn't even completely bald up front and it doesn't look like there was much filling in. I sort of have to comb my hair over in order to cover that bald spot. Don't think I'm being unrealistic, was just expecting more fullness.
  2. Thanks all. Well over the 8 month mark now. I think there's a little improvement but this still doesn't look like a 3,000 graft improvement in my opinion...
  3. 8 Month Update. What do you think I should do? I feel defeated and like such a fool for ever going through with this. It was such a waste. IMG_2958.pdf
  4. I'm not sure what tool was used to extract the grafts. I spoke with the doctor the other day and he agreed that I was behind the curve. He indicated that 1 out of 10 patients may get really delayed growth and maybe that is the case with me. He also said that we will continue to monitor growth over the next few months and that if things don't look good at 1 year, they would re-graft at no charge. After thinking that through, it doesn't seem like a good idea to go back to the same surgeon and use another 3K grafts (I don't even think I have the donor for that anyways). Shitty situation all around.
  5. Thank you both for your response. Appreciate it. Here is a photo from a day post-op.
  6. Hey Folks, I've really been quite dissatisfied with the results of my 3,000 graft FUE hair transplant. Albeit, I'm only six months post-op but to be completely honest, I haven't really noticed ANY new hair growth (which is a bit concerning). I'm a 28 year old guy who spent $14K on this procedure with hopes that it would produce a decent result and give me some good coverage... I'm not comfortable sharing the name of the recommended surgeon who did my procedure (at this stage) and don't think it would be fair to give his name at this point. Everyone says that you must wait to see final results at 12-18 months, I just figured I would have seen something by this point. I'm pretty depressed about my current situation and the fact that I likely threw out $14K (still continuing to make payments on it). I could have put that money towards a down payment on a house but I guess that's the gamble we make when doing something like this. First thumbnail attachment is 6 months post-op and the second and third are pre-op. Honestly, I notice zero regrowth at this point.

Do you think I could all of a sudden start seeing some decent results?
