  1. I underwent a hair transplantation 5 months ago. DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) technique - a type of FUE method - was used in the transplantation. About 2400 grafts were transplanted on the front and top of my head and other 1700 grafts (from my chest and chin) were transplanted on my crown. I took a photo after 4 months of the transplantation and another photo after 5 months of the transplantation. They are both attached here. However, there is really no difference between them. Is normal for the transplanted hairs to delay before starting to grow? In addition, I see now very thin hairs on my head (not visible in the 2nd photo). Do transplanted hairs start to grow as very thin hairs?
  2. The warnings about sun exposure after HT are associated with FUT and FUE procedures where incessions are done for the insertion of hair follicles. What about DHI procedure? Is sun exposure less dangerous after DHI transplant? The time period referred to avoid sun exposure after FUT/FUE is about 4 months. What about DHI?
  3. Thank you. In fact, the core of my question is about DHI technique itself. The warnings about sun exposure after the Hair Transplantation are usually associated with FUE procedure with doing incessions for follicles insertion. But what about DHI? Is sun exposure really less dangerous after hair transplant with DHI?
  4. I was underwent hair transplant procedure by DHI technique about 4 months ago. After about 3.5 months of the procedure (exactly 112 days), I walked under the hot sun for 2.5 hours (from 15:30 to 19:00pm) to induce vitamin D to my transplanted hair. Afterthat, I noticed that my long hair looks a little less dense even though I still see new hairs which are about to grow up but not so much. In fact, my hair starts to look more dense after 3 months of the procedure and the vellus hairs have disappeared but I am not sure if it fell or transformed to normal hair. When I invistigated about this issue, I have found that I shouldn't expose my transplanted hair to the sun for at least 4 months or the transplanted grafts will be harmed. Have my transplanted grafts been harmed or affected?
  5. I underwent a hair transplant on past April by DHI technique and during my return journey to my country, my forehead collided with a hard metal surface with a strong shock, but the shock did not touch the implanted hair and there was no bleeding on my scalp but the shock only caused a small tumour above my right eye. I underwent the procedure 2 months and one week ago and there exist few dots on my head for hairs about to appear especially on the frontline. I am afraid if the shock might have caused a damage as long as the remarkable growth of hair has not begun yet. Was this shock harmful?
  6. I was really the best solution I could have gotten at this stage. I decided to undergo hair transplantation anyway. Even though a second surgery may be decisive, I am not sure if I will be eligible for it.
  7. I will send the rest of the pictures in a message to you. I send them in private messages to whom request them or may give advice. About my follow-up strategy, I have considered that the transplantation will rebuild the blood circulation in the scalp, so that I may be more responsive for further meditation other than transplantation if it will be no longer possible. I am really not sure if primary hair transplantation will make the patient more responsible for meditation later to gain more hairs in addition to transplanted hairs. In addition, there may be another choice which is the hair cloning even though it is not possible now as it is considered to be available in 2027. When it becomes available, it will be a decisive solution for me. As I was advised that it shouldn't be transplanted more than 4000 grafts in one surgery, I decided to undergo my first transplantation to give the chance for myself to get a higher density in any further transplantation procedure, if done.

  9. This picture was taken after 4 days of the surgery and my head was dealt with by lotion and washed by a shampoo 2 times (one time per day) so that many clots might be cleaned away.
  10. I have undergone hair transplantation. A total of 4100 grafts are transplanted for me by DHI technique: 2400 grafts from the donor area of my head, 1000 grafts from my chin, 700 grafts from my chest. The attached photo shows my head after 4 days of the transplantation. Is it a normal result? I mean, it is normal that the blood clots to be spaced out after 4 days? Will my hair regrows from wherever or only from the locations of the shown blood clots?
  11. Yes, you are true. But shouldn't I consult only the hospital who has performed the operation for me? If I refer to them here, they will know that I use this forum to get other consultations and it may be considered something like non-confidence on them that I don't rely completely on their instructions.
  12. I underwent transplantation in Turkey. And the matter is not really that I don't want to give information but I used to ask in this forum about general topics in hair transplantation. If I give details about the hospital where I underwent the transplantation, it will look as I try to give an assessment for it. This forum is not to give assessments about hospitals and doctors. To give any of these assessments, I should use the Realself forum: www.realself.com
  13. Dear, I have undergone a hair transplantation surgery by the technique of DHI (FUE). After 8 days of the surgery, I rubbed my head from the front by my fingers inadvertently. Did it cause any harm to my new transplanted follicles? Regards
