  1. i had hair down to my shoulders before procedure so a shaved head is a look no-one has ever seen so perhaps i just stick to it.
  2. Hey lads, I got a hair transplant 2 and a half months ago getting 3600 grafts in the frontal area and temples and i did not tell anyone besides my parents and i do not want anyone knowing. So i have been away from home studying overseas for my recovery period and i fly back home in 1 month meaning when i fly back i will be 3 and a half months post op. My question to you guys is did you just continue to grow you hair or did you shave it? for me i think my only option is to shave it as i am obviously thin in my temple area's in the early stages of post op which people will question. From your experices if i shave it down to a number 1 or 2 all over and cut the transplanted hair as short as possible with scissors will it all blend in or does it still look noticeably thin even when it is short short. Thanks boys
  3. nice again man, even though the density isn't quite there yet with a small amount of fibres it would look great and or if you were to grow your hair longer you have enough hair their now that it would look good longer and still a good 5ish more months for thickening up.
  4. Yeah for sure most people don't even know hair transplants exist and even if they do how to spot them, balding early is really tough i seriously thought i had already reached my peak of happiness back a couple years ago when i had finished school when i had hair and only just started reciding and had accepted this that life was never going to be as good as that. When really for 99% of people finishing school it is only the beginning of their happiness. Anyway, hopefully this procedure gives us all a 2nd chance.
  5. I wish it were that easy i could just own it that i had it done. Buuut, i am 21 and people i know are not mature and at this age no-one is accepting of stuff like this yet instead it could me used against me especially with the kind of people i am friends with... The pro to it all is since none of my friends are balding or anyone i know my age for that matter they are all uneducated on hairloss so i can simply tell them i changed my diet and started using minoxidil or something and hopefully that will be enough.
  6. I am 1 month post op at ASMED and i thought i was crazy as i also am complaining that my hairline is to aggressive, i have a 3head now which i honestly like it makes me look better but i have no idea how I'm gonna pull this off when i get back home without people asking questions, i wish it was bit more clearer where the hairline was going to be and a little more time to review it... glad I'm not the only one, I'm thing perhaps when the hair is longer and swept back it will make my forehead bit bigger.
  7. For me, it is seasonally. I have noticed when we move into June-October (Australian seasons) my hair begins to shed and thin for these months. I have noticed this for 3 years now so after next year i will be sure that my hair thins seasonally during the winter and thickens up again during summer and by the time its good again its already winter again haha
  8. Nice one man, very relatable to the part where you said a recided hairline with a 5 or 6 head can completely ruin a faces symmetry and with no other way of putting it make you an ugly guy... even with every other part of your face looking great its a real deal breaker. Im only 21 and it took my awhile to put the connection together that my recided hairline did not at all compliment my face. It was only once i realised the reason wearing a hat made my face look good was it hid my hairline and that made all the difference. Its an unusual thing but luckily we took the plunge as i am 1 month post op at ASMED and am right in the middle of the ugly duckling stage. Hopefully the last time ill see my balding ugly head until I'm atlest 40. Then i may be okay with shaving it off.
  9. 1 month post op, they are not wrong about the ugly duckling stage... it is here and it is ugly. Some details of the past month i have been checking my hands everytime i run my hands through it (sounds bit extreme but i couldn't help it to make sure the hairs that were shedding the follicles weren't attached) and i counted roughly 20-40 hairs with the follicle attached in the first 10 days which was good (not including ones that come out in the shower or while i was sleeping). However, as time went on the hairs that sheded continued to have the follicles attached and this has continued up until maybe a few days ago. The ratio was probably about 1 in every 10 hairs had the follicle attached which was unfortunate everytime i saw it but i the scheme of things it will equate to like 5% of grafts transplanted so it won't be a noticeable problem. I have now began a use of rogaine on transplanted area and crown as you can see it is beginning to thin. Further, have resumed my use of IRestore laser helmet and nizoral shampoo a few times a week. Below is a photo with wet hair, keen for time to fly by and get past this stage.
  10. Damn that is looking good and i hope by my 3 and a half month mark it looks somewhat like yours was before i go back home... you had very similar hairloss to me and we both get pretty much identical hairlines and temple angles haha check mine out
  11. 10 day post-op update. Rough couple nights sleeping but head is officially clean of all scabs. Skin looking red in the front and back but that is to be expected and hair is looking clean and healthy attached are all angles and my donor.
  12. 2 weeks i believe, until all scabs are gone and skin is closed again. i used it only twice before surgery and it was all gone however 5 days later it has come back but not in the recipient area more in crown and some in donor, I'm holding off applying it in my donor for a couple more days as i feel some of those wounds have no proplery healed yet.
