  1. Are you planning on getting the crown filled in? That's my next goal.
  2. I'm currently growing my hair out. When done, will try to get a side gig with Van Halen !
  3. Here's a pic of a section on my right side that still has stubble but it did not take.
  4. Agreed! I will try to get a close up of the section on my right side soon.
  5. It's just strange that it's only on my right side. I had two technicians planting the grafts, one working the left side and one working the right. The tech on the left did not say a word during the procedure, the tech on the right talked non-stop and made a comment that she was having difficulty with some of the pockets due to varying punch sizes used. She also said my skin was very tough. Don't know if this played a part but I definitely want my right side touched up to match my left. Now my left side is amazing! Arocha made a strong hairline on the left since that side is styled to the right and the line is very natural looking , so points to him for that!
  6. I missed my 1 year appointment with Arocha. I am very pleased with my left side , however my right side is not as dense. For months I noticed stubble that did not grow. I did not know what was happening and about 4 months ago dr Arocha called me and we discussed the stubble. He assured me it would grow and it has not. It's my fault I missed my one year follow up to show him this. As you can tell from the pics, my hair looks great but there is a region further back on the right side that did not grow. I will try to set up another appointment to have him assess. Other than that, I'm very pleased.
  7. I do not feel any ridge at all. The shock loss has filled in nicely. I visit with Dr. Arocha in a couple of weeks and he will assess my progress further. Overall, I am pleased with my results. The donor scar healed pretty fast but the shock loss did take some time to fill back in.
  8. Thank you! I have my 1 year follow- up with Dr. Arocha mid July. His assistant has consistently contacted me during the year to check on me. Very professional and much appreciated!
  9. Mine started growing back early and by the 5-6 month mark it had filled in considerably.
  10. I had some donor shock loss and the hair grows back. Not a concern.
  11. Each month it thickens up. It appears as though the texture changes.
  12. Quick update. I'm letting my hair grow longer on top and man !! I'm loving it! Very full. There is one little spot on my right side that I will take a pic of. This will probably need a touch up but all the rest is great ! p.s. As you can tell, I don't mind revealing my entire face. I don't understand why people blur out their faces but hey, that's their choice , as for me, I'm proud and pleased of my choices. I want to show off my rock star looks with my new hair !! Thanks again to Dr Arocha, he's the real rock star here ! more pics to come, chow for now.
  13. Thank you. I'm very happy!! I'm fortunate that my hair is thick and medium curl when long. I feel young again!!
