    I'm doubting the 90% grow back grantee too, which really sucks

    Thanks for sharing your story. I've had a good read of your thread and I'm happy Asmed committed to helping you. Your hair looks so much more natural now. I just hope that my hair will change like they said in the coming months and that I can have a more confident hair line. I'll post results in a few months and let you guys know how it's going.

    Hey Melvin, sorry for the delayed response. My hair is usually like this when I have it brushed to the side with a bit of product and hair spray. It looks okay in this picture but in any kind of direct light you can see gaps. You can even notice the thin area on the side of my side fringe. It's a little frizzy when I just leave it naturally so the gaps are wider. The surgery has no doubt given me some of my hair back and I'm grateful for that but not as much as it should have I think.

    Could I see what it looks like at the 12 month point vs the 23?

    The first 2 images are progress shots, at the bottom right are the dates by row, e.g row 1=5.7.17 The 3rd image is 13 months after thr transplant, that's how it looks now. The 4th image is 2 week post surgeyr. That's what I expected... Very concerning indeed...

    Hey all, it's been a while but It's now 13 months since I got my transplant at ASMED and I have to admit, my hair isn't quite where I hoped it would be! Maybe my expectations are unrealistic but at t he moment I'm not feeling like this was 100% successful. It's lacking in density and when I push it back or try to part it, there's still an obvious gap. I have to keep my hair pushed aside for it to sort of look normal. It's also still thin and frizzy. Post surgery I had so many more implants as seen in the image with my shaved head, but I'm not feeling like 90% of those implants have stayed like their grantee mentioned. I of course, contacted ASMED and they mentioned that i'd need to wait a few more months for the density to thicken but I'm not sure that it's going to change that much. Are my expectations too high or is there something wrong here? I'm just a little bummed out at the moment about it. Thanks

    Maybe I'm misinterpreting the information but I'm basing it off the image below. But thanks for the kind words Harry and Razzy, your reassurance means a lot. I'll post more pictures in a month or so

  9. Hey guy's, as a long term reader and first time poster I'd like to finally post some pictures of my progress since my transplant back on September 5th 2017. I was meaning to do a month by month update like a lot of people have but I avoided that. Before having my surgery with ASMED I was very confident I’d get great results and I never really stressed or doubted the procedure because of their success rate and I told myself that I wouldn't need the reassurance of progress pictures because of the simple fact that it would work. Unfortunately, I fell victim to doubt and started comparing my hair to other user's a few weeks ago and thought I wasted my money. I hadn’t really noticed any baby hairs growing and I do check it every now and then but unlike a lot of users where the newer hairs are obviously growing within, I just haven't gotten that. I did feel a few pricks in my hair a few months ago but that was it. I contacted ASMED and sent some pictures and they assured me everything was proceeding fine. I didn't really believe it until I gathered some before and after pictures and looked directly at the progress. Wow was I wrong. I mean the density isn't where I’d like it to be yet and it is quite frizzy at the moment but looking at my pictures I guess I didn’t realise how thin my hair was pre op. I would like to one-day push my hair back as I’ve been hiding the thinning with a side fringe but these pictures really made me appreciate where I might have been of not for the transplant. If you’ve heard about ASMED you know they’re great and very caring and I’d without a doubt recommend them to anyone looking to get a transplant too. There are very few people who know about my surgery so I don’t have many people to talk to but I guess I’d like for this post to help encourage other people to stay positive and definitely keep up the progress pictures because I will from here on out.
