  1. @MichaelD thanks for your comment! Yeah I realise it’s only early days. It’s hard to not go over results with a microscope when you’re so excited for the final result! Trying to remind myself I still have 7+ months growing to go! Appreciate your reassurance!
  2. 5 Month Update Pretty happy with my results at the 5 month mark. Still not seeing the density I am after especially on the left side where the larger recipient area was and in the central peak. I am able to go out in public and easily style it to the point that you can’t see the new hairs which are much shorter than the rest of my hair. Not noticeable anyway. Not anywhere near wearing my hair with an exposed hairline like I’d hope to. Interesting that I seem to be progressing slower than the other 2 patients I kept in contact with. May just be how my body is reacting and I may just have to be more patient. Looking forward to the next month. Hopefully I see more improvements in the density. Interested to know all of your thoughts! Am I being too impatient and is this good for the 5 month mark?
  3. 4 Month Update Pretty happy with results so far. Density lacking but expected that at 4 months. Hair is very uneven and at different growth stages in the front. Have also noticed 2, 2 hair grafts in the frontal hairline but I think the single grafts in front of them still have to grow in so hoping this won’t be an issue.
  4. 3 Month Update Had my first hair cut on the 2nd. Had to trim the sides because the sides and back were a lot longer than the top. Looked like a koala haha. Other than that pretty happy with the progress. Still red in the recipient area. Have lots of stubble type fine grafts and some that are long and have managed to hold on! Pretty excited for the next 3 months to come!
  5. Hi @83mjs where did you have your surgery done? Look forward to following your process as we are around the same time frame!
  6. 2 Month update Photos with Flash on to show grafts clearer Left Right Front Definitely well and truly in the ugly duckling stage. Have noticed I have held onto a very small amount of original transplanted hairs. Even getting a few little bits of stubble where some are starting to poke through. Redness is still a factor. Being undetectable at 10 days is a myth imo. With the redness as it is still, it’d be easy for anyone to see that there’s something up. Sides are longer than the top, uneven growth and areas still recovering from minor shock loss from surgery. Looked better at day 10 than it does now. I’m not exiting the house unless I’m wearing a cap. This whole corona virus epidemic, as bad as it is, has given me a good excuse to stay home and has also cancelled all the events I originally had been invited too. Perfect time to have had a hair transplant. The growth stage can’t come quick enough! Hope everyone is staying safe! 🙂
  7. Agreed now reviewing it closer. Second video is a bad example. Just posted to show that clinic had performed grafts into FUT scarring before.
  8. No I didn’t but that’s for pointing that out! I understand they were done quite some time ago. Second video Is probably a bad example although first video demonstrated grafts into scar well I thought. 10 patients a day? Where’d is that information from? I was one of 4 on the day of my surgery.
  9. Luckily I was able to style it to disguise it. Wind and water were my worst enemy though. Here are two links to repairs Dr Koray has performed to scars. They also have more examples at the clinic. Thanks for your input! Appreciate it!
  10. Hi @Hairgod appreciate the comment. I don’t think the first HT was good at all. If you see the post here of my first transplant result you’ll see the density was a major issue. Temples were the only thing operated on. For 1000 grafts supposedly, Density was unbelievably poor. Hairline design was ok, I agree with that. Photos are deceiving given I swept my hair in a way that would cover the less dense areas. If I pulled my hair back exposing the hairline it looked really terrible, would’ve preferred to have just never had grafts placed there in the first place and not to mention the place meant of doubles even tripled in my hairline. Overall it was just a really really poor job. Clinic has performed quite a few procedures placing grafts into FUT scars and results are good. Yes I should have around 7000 grafts still available in my donor zone These photos should show you a bit more about my first HT. They were taken 3 years after it. Keeping in mind these were the only areas operated on For 1000 grafts, that is a really poor result with a huge level of scarring for such a small area to fill in
  11. 1 month photos. Shedding has well and truly set in! Have got shock loss in the mid scalp, crown area and thinner donor site but have been assured that it’s normal and will thicken up again after some time. Bright indoor light Daylight FUT Scar
  12. Hi @Abby bad luck about the scar. Biggest regret has been the fact that I opted for an unskilled dr that I didn’t do enough research on and trusting that what he told me. I asked Dr Koray about implantation into the scar and he was more than happy to do so but he said if I had work done to the front it isn’t ideal because I can’t sleep laying on my grafts. I think I’ll eventually go back and get the scar covered as well. It’s an awesome clinic. Hopefully they can help you out!
  13. Thanks @Sam818 really appreciate it. Always been a fan of reinforcing the temples. IMO only working on the hairline can look like a toupee once the temples recede later on so thought I’d get them done. Clinic were more than happy!
