  1. Thankyou for all the positive comments guys! I have recently seen that my 4 month update was posted on Instagram, which I don’t mind, but noticed that there were a few comments challenging my results so far. In particular, a couple of people were convinced that I used hair fibres to enhance the results. This was due to ‘obvious difference in hair colour’ which honestly I can’t explain! I feel I need to set the record straight and tell you that I absolutely did not apply hair fibres or any other concealer for that matter. This in my opinion would be a pointless action in the fact that I’d only be cheating myself and all of you guys. I am genuinely giving a very honest account of my experience that will hopefully help others in making decisions about getting a hair transplant, and the emotional ups and downs along the way. For the record I am in no way receiving payment or any discounts for surgery from BHR or anyone else for my updates. The photos I took at 4 months were in a less harshly lit room where I looked in the mirror and for the first time in years thought I looked pretty good. So I took some photos to show you guys! Below are some photos taken at 4 months and 17 days, in the same harsh daylight in my bathroom, with wet hair, straight out the shower. Obviously it looks thinner, but when it dries it kind of fluffs up and covers well. So I’m pretty pleased so far!
  2. Agreed. It’s a huge step and emotions are all over the place at the beginning of the journey. So glad I chose Dr B. How’s your journey are you pleased?
  3. Cheers buddy I’m so chuffed. It really is life changing 👌
  4. Thanks Melvin. I couldn’t agree more. What a talented man he is.
  5. Ok guys sorry for the lack of updates but here are a few pics at 4 months. Thinks have definitely improved and I’m very happy with my hair right now. It’s still quite thin behind the hairline especially on the right hand side but hopefully that will fill in as the months go by. All I can say is Dr Bisanga and his team are all amazing. My hair is fuller and covering well and more importantly I feel confident in my self. I’m starting to feel like the old me who I’ve missed so badly. Thanks to BHR! I’m growing it out a bit and it looks really thick especially with a bit of styling putty! Can’t believe I can use styling products. Dint delay guys if you’re suffering. You don’t need to. Make the trip! Below pics are in less harsh lighting with no product. I will update shortly with day light pics like my pre-op photos....
  6. Thanks Melvin. I thought it looked a little thin in the harsh light but when I compared it to a pre-op photo (same grade 1.5) it didn’t look any different. Not to me at least. Dr B definitely seems to be a master of donor management 👌
  7. Thanks mate. I feel pretty lucky to be fair. I’m already more confident. Let’s hope it continues to improve!
  8. Thanks Abi28. Let’s hope it continues to improve! Cheers
  9. Thanks Ian, looking forward to the next few months. I can’t tell you how liberating it is to not use hair fibres any more! Thanks for your assistance and support as always. Now fingers crossed for a Pat Sharpe Mullet one day haha!
  10. Hey Marshall thanks for the positive comments. If my hair turns out to be as good as yours I’ll be a happy boy! Are you still pleased with it? I think I read that you were considering a small touch up, did you go back to BHR in the end? Cheers bud
  11. 3 Month Update.... 3 months have passed already and although still quite thin in places I think there is an improvement compared to how my hair was pre- surgery. I don’t think I shed all of the grafts placed in the crown, maybe 30%? I don’t use concealer any more which is amazing. I’m really hoping it thickens up over the next few months although I keep thinking that this could be my final result, but research has told me it really should only be the beginning! Still on Propecia Monday, Wednesday and Friday and oral minoxidil daily. In darker lighting I’m quite pleased with my mature hairline and wouldn’t want to lower it any more. Any questions or comments please fire away.
  12. Looking great Jron! 6 months is still early days but looks to be ahead of the game. How’s the scar doing? Have you experimented with shorter back and sides to see if it’s noticeable? Happy for you mate 👍🏼
  13. Your hair loss 9 years ago was very similar to mine before I saw Dr Bisanga in October for 4300 fue grafts. I had a great experience there and at 2 months in, there is already an improvement. I’m sure you will get a great result. What did Dr Bisanga say about your donor supply in terms of density and hair characteristics and groupings? The hairline looks design looks great, did the Dr advise a conservative approach or happy to be less conservative? Hope you heal well I look forward to following your journey! Cheers
  14. Hello all, It’s now been 2 months and 5 days since my procedure with Dr Bisanga and thought I’d be a good time to give an update. Things seem to be progressing well. Everything is fully healed and I can’t see any redness at all which is good and also the numbness has pretty much gone. As for the shedding, I actually retained a fair few grafts which have continued to grow, and weirdly they grew faster than the rest of my hair, very bizarre. I’m not sure if any new hair has grown but it definitely seems like my hair overall is covering fairly well which I didn’t think was possible at this early stage. I was expecting a far worse ugly duckling stage to be honest. So I guess I’m actually pretty chuffed about that. I wonder if maybe I’ll be a late shedder... The best thing is that I’ve actually binned off using hair fibres, I feel fairly comfortable going out and about without them now probably because my hairs a bit longer and to me that’s unbelievably liberating to not be a slave to the fibres!! Obviously there are still the thinning areas but in certain light they look worse. In contrast though I can see what it will look like if it all fills in and grows like it should and that excites the sh#t out of me! The photos are with dry hair and straight out the shower with wet/ damp hair. Oh and I got my second hair cut, grade 1.5 back and sides and trimmed the very ends of the hair with a scissor cut. Any questions or comments please fire away. Cheers all
  15. Thanks for the advice guys. It’s such a crazy journey so far. At 7 weeks I actually have slightly more hair than I did at day zero which is completely unexpected. I guess I could be a late shedder. The waiting continues! Let’s hope it all fills out in a few months....
