  1. Hello everyone, Just to update...I sent the photos of my hair to Dr Koray (similar photos to my 7.5 month update)-he is happy with the progress.I haven't decided if I will keep it shaved for couple more months or let it grow out again. I will post a 8 month photo using my Nikon Camera so should be better quality. Asmed email below: thank you for sending us your Photos. I showed Dr.Koray your pictures and he's really happy with your current result. Kindly be informed that is not your final result and you will see in an improvement in the next few months :). We would kindly ask you to send us some updated photos with your 12th-month result and please send us your new photos with long hair.
  2. Here is a photo of the donor area. I went to a barber got a zero faded and a 2 guard on top. I did it for 2 reasons. One was I was tired of having to style it and use some concealer and thought it looked good but not great. It appeared gappy to me. I also liked the look right after surgery so wanted to know if I could shave it off later to have that look and figure now was the time when it’s not going to look great either way. i originally shaved it to a level 5 guard on top and it looked really gappy so they shaved down to a 2 guard which helped. I was nervous the fue scars would show on a zero guard but the barber couldn’t tell at all. i am now 7.5 month post opp and really hasn’t seen much improvement last month but now that it’s shaved my wife says she can see bumps where hair is about to pop and I was nervous there would be no new hairs just maturing.
  3. I didn’t realize they were coming in blurry. I will take some with my Nikon camera see if that helps. All of the photos I’ve posted are with an iPhone X which is obv easier for me to upload.
  4. Sorry forgot to include the photo of the back of my head shaved to a zero which shows no scaring which I think is very impressive. I hope this helps for people scared to shave head because of scaring.
  5. Thanks for the thoughts and support. I agree although don't have a choice now lol. It will take couple months to grow it back out and at that time I will be close to 10 months so doubt will see much change in hair. From being able to look at my hair roots closely since it has been shaved...It does appear there is a lot of space between the hair (hence why it was looking gappy)so hoping I still have some hairs that haven't come in? Can anyone tell how many cm/sq my hair is now using the zoomed in photo above. I believe it was suppose to be close to 50 cm/sq. I am going to submit these new photos to Asmed see what they say and will update there response.
  6. Here is my 7.5 month update. i was really not liking the gaps in hair and I could make it look good using concealer and time. I debated shaving it and decided to do it. I shaved to a 2 guard on top and a 0 guard fade on sides. I made a post asking for advice but no one responded. I’m also including one shot zoomed in to see if you can see any new hairs which I think I can see coming in. Also to note the barber couldn’t see any scaring or anything even on the zero guard. i will also include a photo of what it looked like before buzzing in a future post. My wife hates the buzz cut but I don’t think it’s so bad.
  7. Even though no one responded I decided to buzz it to a 2 guard on top and zero faded on sides I don’t think it looks terrrible but I also included a zoomed in high resolution you can see the hairs but maybe shows some still coming in?
  8. I am considering shaving my head down to a 1 guard maybe 2z i have been doing this with sides but keeping hair long on top. It can look good but requires to blow dry and brush and maybe some hair toppik. I am hoping my results will thicken but just not liking texture of hair if it’s just straight out of shower. I really liked what I looked like after my head was shaved with the new hairline immediately after the fue. I am attaching two photos of my current hair please let me know if you think I should shave it let it regrow back before the 12 month point. thanks for the input. If you want to see mor photos check out my hair loss post in the forum at Asmed
  9. Here is my 7 month update. im feeling much better about my hair after my hair cut (2 buzz on sides blended leaving hair long on top). The 2nd to last picture I moved hair around so you can see how density still not there yet especially behind hairline. From what I have read the singles come in first so maybe it’s just dense at hairline and the doubles triples haven’t matured yet i know I’m only 7 months and have time foR improvement. I am just happy the hairline came in looking natural at least I think so. Anyone who didn’t know me before including my new hair barber can’t even tell I had anything done which was one of my main goals. I have learned that I am my biggest critic and was obsessing over angles and how it was looking but 99% of people will look at you from face on which is the last photo and I think it already looks good. Hope the constant updates are helping people with the time line especially for those of joy who have fine hair
  10. Looks like you are progressing and still have lots of time but seeing a big change with the framing of your face!!!! I am feeling same thing as you sometimes it looks good but in certain lights doesn't look good. Hope the thickening comes in the 2nd half of the 12 month process. I let my hair get long on top and think its making it look thinner ....going tomorrow for a hair cut hope it helps it look thicker. Since the 6 month point I started using hair styling product and honestly thinking it makes it look thinner than just leaving it natural as it weighs hair down.
  11. And here it is with product and concealer (I think it makes a huge difference and only takes 1 minutes extra to add the topikk where before hair transplant would take 20 min because I had no hairline) the photos with product and concealer were taken today after I styled and added concealer so you can see difference from my car photo which was also taken today. I just hate having to spend time on hair as the main reason I got transplant was to avioid concealers etc. but feeling I should use it until more hair thickens ... still trying to stay optimistic and happy with my hairline framing face
  12. Here it is brushed back with some hair product so you can see difference when I style it if I use a little concealer it really helps but really didn’t want to start using it but maybe for 1-2 months to get through this phase
  13. Hello everyone. I will post my 7 month update next week but wanted to share a photo I took just now in car. This photo is natural light with no styling or product. I didn’t get the top cut last hair cut so it’s getting longer and feels thinner to me. Everywhere I read says to let it grow out. Please let me know thoughts as I was feeling great about progress but just seems very thin today given I usually style it but interested in people’s opinions on how bad it looks. Does anything that from month 7-12 this will thicken so you don’t see my scalp?
  14. Looks like you are about 5.5 months. Yes hopefully you are a slow grower and next 2 months you will see lots of growth which is very possible. How many grafts did they quote you on your consult as I had less loss and they originally quoted 5k then lowered to 4200 once I arrived. Your case seems the first time I have seen them use less graphs than more.
  15. Thanks everyone for the replies. I think it depends on the lighting and how close you are. I am very happy with progress but would be disappointed if this was my final result.I think for a lot of people including myself that had receding hairlines. The simple framing of face makes a big difference in overall aprearence even if you lack density. I will post another update at 6.5 months
