  1. @MrZennie well the thing is, since im already going to be going under the knife again, i am considering getting work done on my crown, which has never been operated on before and is unrelated to this f*ckup. Dr harris is $2 more per graft than dr lovitt. Maybe i could get him to lower the rate. Idk
  2. @Melvin-Moderator yea im meeting with her sept 4th to go over all of the specifics. Im going to grill her hard. Would you be able to comment on my question about transplant graft curlyness? Noje of my hairnis naturally curly. But some of the grafts are weirdly curly. I am hoping this will smooth out. Or is there a possibility this was a f*ckup on the doc's end as well?
  3. @Melvin-Moderator tbh her excuse was kind of bs. She said "oh we wanted to lower the hairline I thought". Well she should have known 1200 grafts would not be enough for that and say I need more grafts before surgery. I was essentially doomed for a 2nd hair transplant to repair this right from the start, with only 1200 grafts. Tbh i dont really care about her apologizing or owning up, just wanting her to fix this. And if i can get god knows how many free grafts from her repairing this, then I dont need her to admit guilt, just to make it right I do trust she can make it right this 2nd time around My hair is parted in the picture. So that might be why it appears uneven. Also some of the transplant grafts are pretty curly. I think that is unrelated to the huge gap f*kup, and i am hopging the grafts smooth out Do you habe an opinion on unusual transplant graft curliness/kinkiness? From what ive read at 8 months there it is normal for grafts to be curly, and will straighten out with time
  4. @Gasthoerer ok got it. What specifically makes you think it has a poor macro design? I can bring this up with the doc as well. Tha is.
  5. UPDATE: i just talkd to the doc and she is going to fill in the density free of charge. Still massively blows i have had to deal with the stress, obsession, fear and uncertainty of this. Plus i just atarted a new job, having to tell my boss i need a few days off for a hair transplant :/. And yes it looks like i will be going back to this same doc. Yes this is a f*ked situation, but when it comes down to it it really is a mattet of not using enough grafts right? The transplant grafts thenselves did grow out well (some of the hairs are curly-but i hope they straighten out) I do have mixed feelings seeing this doc again, but since she is well aware she f*ked up i feel she will really try t9 make things right this time. The doc is Shelley Lovitt, an assistant to James Harris in colorado. This clinic is perhaps the only place i would go to for a HT in colorado. Juat more convenient and familiar to get it done here, than flying out somewhere i know what you guys are thinking, "why the f*co go back to the same doc?!?" but its just one of those things where maybe if you were in my shoes you would go back to the same doc too
  6. yea sucks. Pre HT I of course read about bad HT's and thought "this can't happen to me" but here I am. Dr Lovitt is not part of IAHRS, but she is an assistant in a clinic run by Dr James Harris, who is. So I thought I was in good hands with Dr. Lovitt.
  7. I did but assumed everything had still gone according to plan. I assumed I had strong native hair in the gap area and it must have immediately fallen off after the surgery. The doc was Dr. Shelly Lovitt in Denver, Colorado. So do you think the doc definitely f*cked up? What should I do?
  8. Hi all, 30/m, NW3. Had a FUE transplant of 1200 grafts on Dec 18, 2018. The transplant grafts started growing in nicely 3-4 months in. They are a bit curly, but not really concerned about that as I think it will straighten out. However, all around the recipient transplant areas, there is shock loss. This is most evident in the middle front part of the hairlines. At almost 8 months post-op, I am growing increasingly despondent that this shock loss hair will not regrow. I was looking at pictures I took the day after the HT, and it looks like the "shock loss" area never had hair there, that rather the Doc and techs transplanted an uneven ring of grafts in front of my native hair. You can see a line of bare skin between the grafts and my native hair. If this is indeed the case, there is no growth to be had in the "shock loss" area and instead the doc really f*cked up. So either: 1) this really is shock loss but for some reason at 8 months there is still no regrowth or 2) this was really bad placement of the transplant grafts and they did not place the transplant grafts close enough to my native hair Any thoughts, comments, avenues I should pursue? My doc says I need to wait 10-12 months post op to see final results. But I'm sick of waiting (especially if this not even shock loss!) and want to get to the bottom of this now so I can schedule a repair surgery asap, instead of wasting 4 more months waiting around. The surgery pics were taken 1 day after surgery, the selfie pics were taken today.
