  1. Well now that the main months have passed .. Im starting to notice the little details .. there’s some density issues on the right side .. n it has me worried .. when I comb it the illusion looks good .. since my donor hair is thick n wiry (.7mm-.8mm caliber ) so it can hide a lot of flaws . what u guys think of the right temple ..m
  2. Hey y’all thanks for the support .. yeah I did invest in myself .. I look pretty good again n I saved back $7,000 that I spent on the hairtransplant in the last 6 months , so finances lookin good again after that big $20k hit ..
  3. I honestly think u look fine the way U are. It looks natural to me .. I never looked twice at someone with natural hair loss .. it’s when they start covering it up with some weird combover or hairstyle , that puts attention to their hair , that’s when people notice .. ur hairloss seems quite extensive ,. N ur donor doesn’t look plenty . I’m not sure what kind of result u are looking for.. fut will provide u with the most hair overall, but I don’t think u have enough hair on the back to cover the scar in the future after 2-3 transplants.. u really need to find a top doc , that can give u masterplan n provide u with some realistic expectations ,. Best wishes ..
  4. Hahah , no I’m not happy spending $20,000 on hair .. I was a norwood 1 two years ago at 38 y/o .. I would of never thought I be losing my hair .. now I’m afraid I’m going to bald one day .. but hopefully not .. now that I’m proactive on my hairloss n using medications .. (fin) my hair seems to stabilize .. Overall I’m pretty happy with results so far .. it’s not pluggy n see-thru .. n as the hair gets longer it will look fuller n blend better with my native hair . So I’m not worried about it .. n thank goodness I got a HT already. My office has started enforcing a no hat policy .. I don’t think I can go thru with surgery if I can’t hide it for a few months ..
  5. Hey y’all , 7th month update .. not much has changed .. hairs getting longer n stuff .. I’m too lazy to write too much more .. but yeah I don’t use hair products like hair spray n gels .. when I use hair products it tends to pull out some hairs so I don’t style my hair much .. I use a little body lotion n run that through my hair to give it some volume .. if it’s good for ur skin, it’s good enough for u hair I usually spend only 2 minutes combing my hair .. for someone that just spent $20,000 on their hair .. I’m not very anal about it .. guess it’s because I had nice hair most my life . So never obsessed about it .
  6. If u do more research on dermarolling . U supposed to only do it on ur hair or skin 1 time every 3 weeks .. that way ur skin can heal and develop collagen .. when u doing it every week all u doing is injuring ur skin and not giving it time to heal .. also , u not suppose to put anything on ur hair or skin after dermarolling .. especially rogaine .. don’t use it on the same day u dermaroll.. they say .5mm is the depth needed to develop collagen production ..
  7. The hairline looks good .. I can tell it matches ur face .. u are pretty much out of the danger zone now .. just let the process take care of itself n not worry about things .. it’s out of ur hands now .. i was like u , I did the solo journey too .. told nobody n just got on the plane n flew away . Came back home n nobody knows .. now I’m at 6 months n I don’t wear a hat anymore .. n nobody has any clue .
  8. dude cosmo don’t speak to me directly.. I don’t know u . N I wish u the best in life . I come on occasionally just to reply n comment on things .: I got offended cuz BLD was offended by ur attitude on his thread .. that’s all bro .. relax . Maybe ur opinion ain’t needed at times ;)
  9. Quite honestly, what are u guys trying to do .. it’s someone’s hair man .. n his hair is better than urs .. so chill out n relax dudes ..it’s one thing to say stuff n want to critique .. but at the same time think about what u saying ? What’s ur purpose ? R u trying to make him feel bad? His little bald area on the side is a lot better than ur norwood 5-6 u been living with .. just cuz u got some coverage on ur head now don’t mean it looks good . It’s just better than what u had before .. so relax . N stop being keyboard warriors .. We growing hair here bro .. it’s a struggle .. the last thing anyone want is for others to be negative about it when the growth has just begun .picking on little minor details , when the main result is the most important .. but I do agree . Doctor diep could of planned the extraction better .. but do u want him to do it or the tech ? There’s a reason he gets more coverage with less grafts ..
  10. BLD has a failed transplant before that left his donor fukked up .. if he’s able to get his hairline fixed with 1700 grafts , n repair what the first transplant wasnt able to achieve .. It’s a success .. ur growth looks great right now bld.. n ur native hair looks strong n full ... I think u going to have a great result man .. I’m pretty sure of it actually by looking at ur pics n progress .. best wishes :)
  11. Hahah Jj.. khong cac duoc 😛 But nope .. I doubt it if there will be 6 more months of growth .. that’s what the clinics what us to think .. I think I have 2 more months for any new sprouts .. but thickening of new hair is definitely coming.. because technically , transplanted hairs will go into a rest phase .. which lasts 3-4 months .. so if u transplanted n shed after month 1 or 2 .. unless the transplanted hairs got fukked up somehow or lacking blood supply ,, the majority of them should be sprouting around month 4-6.. with a few sprinkles of new hair in months 7-9.. But remember , even if u don’t see it with the naked eye .. they either sprouted or not by then .. good thing I have the 15x magnifying Mirror so I know what to expect .. I’m just an average person with average hairloss .. so what u see from me should be the average results of most patients that goes to a top doc .. that’s why I documented this from beginning n not wait for results to be great before posting . Y’all helped me . So I’m helping y’all .. Overall, it’s been worth it so far .. only thing I don’t like about a hair transplant is the cost .. damn $20,000 yo .. but u know what .. it’s kinda worth it .. i was getting older n on the decline . N stressing about future hairloss . But fixing the hairline does wonders to frame them face n give u a fresh start .. but also just important is propecia., ive been on it for 1.5 years now n seeing the benefits of it . I have less hair fall .. which is major!!!! Best wishes to y’all . I be back on this thread at month 7 . Peace out ! one last thing .. heres a pic of me n my mullet .. hahah .. my girlfriend don’t like me with long hair .. but u know what, I be like imma enjoy having long hair for a bit before I cut it .. when u balding ,; u want to retain all ur hair n not cut it .. Y’all feel me
  12. P.s the temple closure and lowered hairline is the money shot for a good transplant .. the density will come later .
  13. Hey y’all thanks for the support .. I’m here right now at my homegirls bar grand opening .. n this is the first time I’ve been around a lot of people in the daytime without a hat for awhile .. n no one can tell I had anything done No one staring at my hairline n stuff .. n nope I don’t put anything in my hair .. no gel or anything .. the transplanted hair is thick so it sticks up naturally .. so I don’t need to comb it much I just use my hands and slick it back .. this pic right here is after 2 ipas n a sake bomb at lunch time 😛 . It’s a grand opening of a bar ; so couldn’t help it so I’m heka red n sweaty ., but hair don’t look too bad ..
  14. Hey y’all .. 6 month update .. I’m just starting to not wear a hat anymore .. The hair is growing well enough .. I think about 70% have sprouted.. it’s all about hair maturing N growing longer n thicker now .. there is still some problem areas in the mid n right temple .. but I hope that will fill in .. other than that i think things will be successful enough .. but I’m still holding H&W to the 90% growth they promised me .. Even though I won’t be looking for a refund or nothing .. n I probably wouldn’t want to go back for a refinement n stuff .. I’m not a perfectionist .. I just want to be comfortable n confident in my own skin .. im just glad I didn’t get a pluggy hairline .. or prolonged redness n bumpy skin .. those were my biggest fears .. here some pics .. top 3 is today when hair is good in office lighting n one in the car .. the last 1 is not so good lighting n a bit see through .. n is what I hope will improve when hair thickens up ..
  15. I suggest u follow ur doctor . All the clinics have their own methods that works for their patients .. n it’s best u follow it so They can’t blame u for things .. Like a lot of clinics give u a saline spray to keep ur reciepient moist every 1-2 hours for the first 1-2 days.. while others don’t .. n want to let the body heal naturally .. Just keep it clean though .
  16. R u taking a shower everyday ? It’s important to keep ur scalp clean .. u can still wash ur hair without touching them n dislodging them .. i shampooed my native hair , the top n back .. n scrub it a little bit with shampoo to get some of the soap suds then I tapped the suds onto the recipient , so the soap can clean n keep the recipient area moist n clean .. I leave it like that for 5-10 minutes , after that I let the shower head hit the top of my head n let the water flow down to the recipient area .. its important to be hygienic ..
  17. Looks good shook .. it looks good n dense .. u have the same hairloss as I did when I went to dr diep for my consultation .. n that’s almost exactly the same hairline he drew for me .. n I think it looks good .. keep us updated on ur progress . Main focus now is to keep the recipient area clean n not dislodge the grafts by putting pressure on them .. I think u should get a great result .. u a young buck , with thick Asian hair .: that grows fast .. best wishes ..
  18. Hey thanks for the thread Dazed .. I appreciate the experience n insight.. I just turned 40 myself n worry about what I would look like in my 50-60.. I’m like u ,, I didn’t start my hairloss till late .. was still a norwood 1 at 37.. n most definitely I will still worry about my hair when I’m in my 40- 50s.. I probably won’t make it to 70 so I don’t look that far ahead .. heheh .. n don’t mind JJ51702.. it’s always the bald ugly guys that’s grouchy about life n try to put their negative energy onto others..
  19. I say u should start researching the top tier hair transplant surgeons on this website .. n get as many consultations as possible .. and start saving up $10,000+ to resolve ur issue ..
  20. Dude got a Homerun result .. he should be paying dr gabel more money . Look at ur before n after.. I don’t think u realize how great a result u got with such a low number of graft .. seems like everything grew . N u had thick hair so it really made a great cosmetic difference ..
  21. Yeah u suppose to stop all those things .. they don’t want anything in ur system that can cause excessive bleeding .. not even caffeine ..
  22. What’s going on here .. please use ur common sense n count the dots on ur head .. n ask the clinic if this is 4100 grafts . What kind of plan is this ? I know u are desperate for hair ,. But Why would u not be more educated on surgery ,, n let these clinics take advantage of u.. I’m sorry , but it just makes me kinda mad .. they took ur money knowing they made no cosmetic difference .. keep track of ur monthly progress on here ,, n let the pics speak for themselves .,I’m hoping u get a satisfying result , but if u don’t . At least u have a record of their result for other potential clients .. n no it’s not normal for the grafts to be so spaced out apart..
  23. Hey KW8, sorry to hear u disappointed ,, I can see the sadness in ur eyes .. ur results aren’t bad .. it’s fixable .. u just need a few hundred grafts into the hairline .. when I look at ur pre-op pics .. the first 3 rows of hair aren’t dense packed .. it’s spaced evenly all around .. I noticed the top hairline docs usually dense pack those first few rows.. to eliminate the see thru-effect . Well anyway best wishes to u .. have u contacted the clinic ? Maybe u can get a partial refund so u can get it fixed somewhere else .. they have good customer service there.. let them know U have this thread running , n people want to know how they will resolve ur situation .
  24. Oh yeah ,, don’t forget to tell them to extract from both sides of ur head .. if u don’t say nothing u just end up complaining about it later ..
  25. Keep ur top hair long n comb it forward .. if I had to shave my head I probably wouldn’t do it .. but that’s just me .. since I never shaved my head before .. people will notice once I do .. - if u plan on shaving ur head .. I would do it weeks before the surgery so people get used to u with no hair .. so once u do get a transplant they won’t think much of it .. u can easily hide ur transplant with ur current hair right now .. u just having hairline work .. just tell the office how u style ur hair so they can shave accordingly .. if u don’t say nothing, they will just shave u how they want .. best of luck in ur upcoming surgery shook ..
