  1. Just a quick update guys. I arrived in Belgium today and am undergoing my 2nd procedure with Dr Feriduni tomorrow. I will update with a new thread shortly once it is done to document my experience and will put a link in this one... excited to get that full head of hair!
  2. To answer yours and tressful11's question, as you can see from the photos there is no noticeable scarring in my opinion, Im pretty amazed by how it turned out in that regard. If you shine a light on it and look at the forehead at within extremely close range in the mirror, there are a couple of pits but these are really not noticeable and could very easily just be put down to very slight natural imperfection in the skin.
  3. I am not sure how many grafts were removed as I am not entirely sure how many grafts I had in my first procedure. I was naive and not as clued up when I had my first procedure done back in the early 2000's. If I recall correctly the Dr managed to re-use near a thousand grafts when combining the old hairline and the scar repair. If you are interested, I would strongly recommend getting a consultation, Dr Feriduni was meticulous in my experience and was honest regarding expectations etc.
  4. If I recall correctly, prior to my first procedure with Dr Feriduni I had around 10,000 grafts. I used 4,740 in my first procedure but as I understand it over a thousand of those were re-used from my old hairline from my poor first procedure. So I still have in well excess of 6,000 I believe. Dr Feriduni spent a lot of time in the initial consultation calculating the number of grafts and then suggesting the new hairline placement in order to ensure that should I wish to have further procedures then there would be plenty present to give the 'full head of hair' look. That initial c
  5. Hi in2deep, Thank you very much for the comment, I am very happy with the result. In regard to the extraction, it was also mentioned to myself that the extraction may have to be done more than once. As I understand it, this is down to the natural growing cycle of the hair and the fact that some of the hairs may be in their dormant stage at the time of the procedure. I was fortunate in that it was only needed once, and I was informed that with the minimal hairs that were left I could extract them myself with a tweezer and they would gradually return smaller and disappear. This
  6. Hi guys, Today marks the 1 year anniversary of my procedure so thought this would be the perfect time to provide an update on my final result. The pictures attached were taken yesterday. I have included a close up of the hairline to show where my previous hairline was removed as quite a few have asked regarding this. I am incredibly happy with the result and am thrilled that I decided to go for it and with my choice of clinic to undertake the procedure. The density is beyond what I would have expected given I do not have the thickest hair naturally. I have c
  7. I am cutting it down to 5mm, and was previously cutting it down to 3mm and did not find the fact I had FUE visible even at that length. I remember reading something the clinic gave me at the time of procedure recommending I do not go below 3mm.
  8. Feeling and looking good thanks, I feel the density has improved and is looking thicker, I am very happy. Like with most people, life has been a bit strange with the outbreak so have not got around to taking new pictures yet, but I will look to do so over the next few weeks, and will definitely do so in June for the 1 year mark
  9. Watterot hit the nail on the head, I prefer the short cut right now because of the crown, as the hair grows the area I have had the HT on begins to look even better, but the limiting factor is that it really accentuates the baldness in the crown. I don't really want to be using something like Toppik any more so i'm keeping it short until (life permitting) I have my second HT and a full head of hair. At that point I will certainly grow it out and experiment 🙂
  10. Hi guys, as promised here are my photographs at the eight month mark. Recently I've really noticed the scar repair that Dr Feriduni did for me starting to fade, happy with the progress and excited for the final result. I have a consultation for the end of May with the Dr to assess the final result (which is included with the HT itself) and assess future options. Exciting times!
  11. Quite possibly, but Im certainly over the moon with what Dr Feriduni managed to do. Ive attached an up close hairline pic at 8 months in my update post below.
  12. They begun fading very quickly in fairness, I was not overly conscious of them from after the first couple of months, and was back in work within two weeks. Ive attached an updated hairline picture in my update post below.
  13. The area where the old grafts were removed looks absolutely great now, there are a few little dots but they are fading and I expect all with time will likely disappear. Dr Feriduni really seems to have done an amazing job for me, you certainly wouldn't know that I had grafts removed in that area. I'll be sure to post an up close picture at the 8 month mark!
  14. My next step will be an appointment with Dr Feriduni next June at the 1 year mark to assess the options. All being well and finances allowing, I will look to get the patch at the back filled in too. I am now at month 7 and it is looking considerably better than it did in the month 5 pictures, I am extremely happy and very encouraged. I will post further progress pictures on here at the 8 month mark
  15. Hi guys, just providing an update and the pictures. I am now 5 months post procedure… I had intended to provide an update at 4 months but only a little hair had come in at that point, but I noticed that it was starting to much more rapidly so thought it’d be more useful to everyone to leave it another month. As expected, I lost most of the transplanted hair between the two week to two month period. I did keep most of the actual hairline, which I was informed was due to the fact they were single grafts as they give the best look at the hairline. As I stated the hair began to come
