  1. I have just posted my progress, the gap still exists but liveable. The more annoying is the hair growing outwards and it's difficult to comb.
  2. Week 30 Update (7 months) I stopped taking fin and applying minox as soon as I finished my 6 months mark. I'm not sure if this is a great progress or an average, and I'm praying the vertex hair grows a bit more than it has till now, its only been 7 months I understand, but I was hoping for a better growth around the crown, as the baldness is still pretty much visible under natural light. I have tried clicking pictures under various lighting conditions for everyone to see the difference. The front hair's orientation has been a bit irritating to be honest, they are growing outwards instead of following the natural hair line orientation, has anyone experienced the same? any solutions? hoping it doesn't require undergoing another procedure. I'm planning to meet the doc soon if I don't see progress in the coming month. let me know your views guys.
  3. 17 Week update I'm finally able to see some difference between my pictures from week 13 and week 17. Frontal hair has grown further, not densely packed as I had hoped them to be but it's only been 4 months - hoping them to be dense by 6 months as it looks strange at the moment with wavy hair, fingers crossed. I can see some improvement in the crown area but it has been a slow progress, scalp is still visible with thin hair. Im continuing with the Fin, Biotin and Minox 5% everyday. Let me know your thoughts.
  4. 13 Week update Im not sure if there has been any significant hair growth, there does seem to be small thin hair growth and baldness is still very visible, Im continuing with the Fin, Biotin and Minox 5% everyday. Let me know what you guys think about the progress? Im hoping I will be able to see some coverage in the next month but crown growth from what I have heard is the slowest, finger crossed. At this point, It sort of looks like pre-ops pic. At some angles the baldness looks even more significant, and at some it looks like there is plenty of thin hair growth. Confusing :/
  5. I thought that too there was a gap between the native hair and the transplanted area at first till I visited the clinic the next day and then they showed that my native hair was razed off to almost zero just above the transplanted area thus making it appear like there is a gap but that's not the case. It's not that clear in the picture that I uploaded it seems but rest assure there is no gap. and yes I do not plan to have a buzz cut and the hair line design was chosen by the Dr with my consent.
  6. 8 Weeks update Attached the pics with my progress, still got a little numbness on my recipient area. Just today I saw that I have a pimple on my vertex/crown, maybe its due to the usage on baby oil I have been applying. I'm continuing with Biotin and Finasteride along with applying baby oil and minoxidil 5% solution once a day. Let me know what you think at 8 week mark? good progress?
  7. For me the pain did subside after 10 days, but still had enough pain that troubled during sleeping. Lyrica worked for me, none of the other pain killers seemed to have any affect on me.
  8. Hey mate, sorry for the late reply. I have been traveling for the past month and for some reason, did not get any email notification. I hope you are doing well, you can message me if in case you need an advice. Since you just got your HT, first month is crucial and I would take extra care if I were you. Try avoiding wearing a cap or a helmet, many people will look at your new look but if you are confident nobody will notice.
  9. Hey mate, sorry for the late reply. I have been traveling for the past month and for some reason, did not get any email notification. I took lyrica, the only painkiller that worked for me but do take doctor's advice before you have one.
  10. Thanks Shera. I finally got an 8 weeks update, better than before Numbness still exists though, maybe not to the extent that I suffered a month back.
  11. Thanks Melvin, I read that this phase lasts for around 3-4 months before growth kicks in again. I'm applying minoxidil 5% along with fin, just a tad worried about the native hair loss for now.
