  1. 2nd transplant now booked with Dr Cinik for December 👌
  2. So I’ve purposely left the updates for a couple of months as I felt there was little to update on but now the ten month mark has arrived and so far I’m happy with the results. Over the last couple of months I feel the density has improved, I’ve had a couple of hair cuts, normally once a month as I like the back and sides short but in general I have had no issues at all. I continue to take medication daily as advised by Dr Cinik and I am now in the process of discussing my second transplant with them for hopefully December The plan for transplant number 2 will be to concentrate on the mid to crown area of my head for overall coverage.
  3. Seven month mark and all going well, I feel that little has changed over the last four weeks but the clinic are happy so far and I’m looking forward to around the nine month mark as I hear a lot that things start to fill out more. During this month I’ve had a haircut, I tend to go for a two on the sides and back and a tiny bit of the ends (if any)
  4. Well the six month mark has arrived and so far I am very happy with the results. At the very beginning I thought to myself this will take an age to see progress but in fairness the time has passed very quickly! My routine is still the same, meds everyday, couple of times a week I use fractioned coconut oil and I’m probably getting my haircut (back/sides) once a month to keep things tidy, but the best part is people have said it makes me look 10 years younger which is fantastic because I always felt without hair I looked ten years older than I actually was! My learnings so far at what I call the half way mark, first and foremost be patient, this is a marathon not a sprint, I’m certainly not finished yet, do exactly as your doctor tells you at the very beginning and get into a routine, take the meds not just for a couple of weeks but create the habit of taking as advised and finally track the progress, photos weekly it’s amazing at how things can change in seven days! Finally I wanted to show my pics prior to my procedure and as I am today, I’m delighted at this stage with the work Dr Cinik and his team have done and look forward to seeing how the next six months turn out before I head back for HT2
  5. Week 20 - Five month mark The progress since week 16 to 20 seems to have come from nowhere, I’ve noticed a big difference in the growth of my transplanted area and the density seems to have appeared. After five months I am happy so far with the progress as is Dr Cinik’s clinic and I look forward to what the 12 month mark will show. The daily ritual of medication contiinues as does using fractioned coconut oil twice weekly on my hair
  6. @MrOneSeries thanks buddy, yes definitely, I’m going to book in August for November which will be the year mark, not going through all this for half a result, may as well go the whole hog! How are you getting on with yours?
  7. Four Month Mark So between week 14 & 16 there is not much to report, however between month three and four I would say I’m seeing the changes. I always feel the photos I take and post never show things in the best light but naturally I can see that hair is growing steadily now, I’m well aware this is a journey so not being too impatient but the density seems to be beginning and so far I am happy with the outcome. My ritual at the moment is medication daily as per clinics instructions and three times a week I am using fractioned coconut oil on donar and recipient area, this I feel helps with the itching I sometimes still suffer but I put that down to hair growth, surprisingly at the top of my head in a small area I still have a little bit of numbness but this will be temporary Monthly I am sending my progress pics to Dr Cinik and they seem to be happy so far, now I’m looking forward to what the months ahead bring and then begin to think about transplant number 2. Between weeks 14 & 16 I have had a haircut, I’m trying where possible to keep the sides and back tidy, but also had a very small amount (the ends) taken from the top. As always feel free to ask any questions if anyone considering such a procedure
  8. @fespafer looking good, best of luck 👍 i look forward to seeing the results
  9. @Jonboy81 Biotin, a multivitamin & Saw Palmetto as recommended by Dr Cinik
  10. Latest pictures week 14 Not a lot has been happening between week 8 and week 14 apart from a haircut, the numbness at the top of my head is just about gone, still suffer from some itching but I put that down to a little growth starting and I’ve had a couple of pimples appear So far so good, it’s about being patient and judging the final results and not this ugly duckling stage Feel free to ask any questions, happy to help or give my views to anyone considering the procedure or Dr Cinik
  11. @Jonboy81 according to Dr Cinik I was a Norwood 6, I was told at the beginning I would need 2 transplants for full coverage
  12. @Markee yes he can very well @Dalgaard Safety was fine. During my procedure my wife walked to a nearby shopping centre and back with no issues.
  13. @Dalgaard the needless was well worth it, I have to have two HT and when I go back in November I’ll be taking needless again, as for Cinik doing the channels that’s your own personal preference but I did find the techs very professional so I’m sure would be fine.
