  1. 4 Month Update Growth is in full swing! At this point the hair along the sides is blending more and more seamlessly with the native hair, with the middle of the hairline slowly catching up. In another month or so I'm guessing I'll be able to really style my hair to expose the hairline...for now it's still just a little too thin, especially in bright light. Got my first professional haircut since the surgery and trimmed it down to a #5 in back (I'm pretty sure I can go down to a #4 without it showing but we'll find out in another month or two) Below are pics in a few different lighting conditions. This really shows the difference between HT pics with a flash vs under direct sunlight. These last two are with lots of Toppik sprinkled in (bottom shows where I started...you can see how much better the temples are looking already)
  2. That's a really great and natural looking design, congrats!
  3. Thanks for the update, I always wonder how HTs end up looking once the crown goes so this is very useful information. I think another pass that gives you a "thinning" look from the midscalp to the crown would be the way to go
  4. 3 Month Update Hairline is slowly starting to form. Pretty sparse in the middle, but it's still very early so I figure things will thicken up significantly over the next few months. Watching the sides and temples grow in has been very satisfying!
  5. I had my FUT with Dr. Konior a few months ago, really great experience and enjoying some early growth. Feel free to PM if you have further questions. They both have a strong reputation for mega sessions. I'd be more inclined to go with Hasson for hairline work and Wong for crown work. I wouldn't say Hasson's results are necessarily better, but he's posted some serious home runs over the past few months.
  6. I was in this position a year or two ago and decided the wait was worth it. The way I saw it, Konior's hands on approach made the odds of a home run result just a little bit higher. But it's probably something like a 98% chance vs 99.9% -- even though H&W use technicians and book multiple surgeries per day, they are widely considered to be one of the best clinics in the world. Waiting a year is frustrating, but keep in mind a hair transplant affects the way you look for the rest of your life.
  7. How many grafts did you end up getting? Best of luck, I’m sure you will be thrilled in a few months
  8. That scar is crazy good, was it that thin initially or did it shrink over time? I am sure those new grafts will make a huge difference in a few months
  9. Beautiful result, and great to see what 39 grafts/cm can look like in the hands of a skilled surgeon. Was his hair caliber on the finer or thicker side?
  10. Going to post another update at the 3 month mark. Lots of new sprouts coming in, so I’m excited for the hairline to start forming
  11. If you're pretty sure there's more hair loss to come (I would guess there is), you should definitely try finasteride first. It addresses the root cause of balding and will usually make the biggest difference in keeping your hair over the years. Minox works well in most cases too, but keep in mind you'll have to rub that stuff into your scalp at least once a day for the rest of your life (or until you stop caring).
