  1. Thanks 🙂 Yes you are right, hoping for some improvement in the next 6 months. I think my donor also looks OK in case I would decide to improve the crown in the future. I should have 3200 grafts left. -- If I would do another HT I might also consider filling in the temples a bit and lowering the hair line slightly, but my friends have told me it wouldn't look natural. What do you guys think?
  2. 12 months post-op So last week was my 1 year mark and here are some photos in different lighting. I feel there is some improvement in the crown area but other than that not much difference since the last update. I am very happy with the outcome 😁 Still using Finasteride 1mg and Minoxidil liquid once daily.
  3. Looks great man. I'm sure your results will be amazing! I also had a similar gap after my HT at ASMED last year. It grew out well and is not noticeable anymore so I'm sure you will be fine. You can see photos of my results in my forum topic. It think that the finasteride will help to thicken the miniaturized hairs in the crown, making the bald spot to decrease in size and the gap to eventually go away in the coming months. Now I'm not fully sure but if I remember correctly I also think that the crown area was shaved a second time on day 2 before the surgery, whereas the full shave
  4. 9 months post-op Here is my 9 month update! I am very happy to see a lot of improvement in the crown area and also that the hair is getting much fuller overall. I hope that it will continue to improve even more in the coming months. I am still using Finasteride 1mg and Minoxidil liquid once a day.
  5. 7 months post-op So today is my 7 month mark and I was just at the barber and got a haircut. My barber who I've been going to for 2 years, had seen other clients with poor HT results and was really impressed with mine, especially with the donor area. Since the last post the density has increased a bit overall but especially in the crown area. I'm very happy with the results and barely think about hair loss anymore. Have also got more compliments as I go out and my confidence is boosted. I will probably not post as frequently from now on as it will most likely not be so much
  6. 6 months post-op So this is my 6 month update. It's been great improvement in density since month 5 and I'm getting a lot of compliments from family and friends The photos of the frontal area that I'll post here are taken in different lighting, both indoor and outdoor. It does actually look better and more dense in reality so I'm really happy with the growth. Also note that the hairs in the hairline are still a bit shorter than the native hair behind. Even the crown area which still lacks some density looks to have more coverage in reality and in optimal lighting than in the photos,
  7. Looks great! As your last post was from month 5, did you notice much improvement between month 6 and 7?
  8. 5 months post-op I am happy with the growth in the frontal area and I can see new hairs starting to grow and density increasing. However the vertex area still has poor growth and it seems as many of the grafts have not grown yet. Attaching a photo here of a comparison against 11 days post-op before all grafts had shed. I'm not sure what to really expect at the 5 month mark. Sent some photos to the clinic and they said that it's normal at this stage and that I will see more growth in the vertex from month 8-9 to 12-13. What do you guys think about the progress so far?
  9. Impressive! Could you upload some post-surgery photos of the graft placement? Did the patient use finasteride or minoxidil before/after the transplant?
  10. Hi @HisHairness - Yes you are right, congrats on your transplant! It will be interesting to follow your progresss and good luck with the growth! Thanks @Gatsby! Yeah I had actually never shaved my head since starting to get bald so I never considered it but hopefully I will not need it now Thanks @Hitch! Yes I did have some hair in the middle but I do notice the hair looks thicker and I cannot see through to the scalp as much as before, it could be the effects of Finasteride+Minoxidil but I've also seen some small hairs starting to grow in between. I
  11. 4 months post-op The growth has increased a lot in the frontal area but the vertex is still lagging behind which I believe is fully normal at this stage. Overall I'm happy with this amount of growth at the 4 month mark but I'm a bit concerned about the donor area which is still a bit patchy. Not that I am concerned about my appearance as I don't think anyone would notice, but I'm rather thinking that if it will stay like this I would probably not consider another transplant in the future. However, it's still early in the process and I can just hope that it will even out in the coming mont
  12. Thanks for your response, good to hear that. Did you also do your HT at Asmed?
  13. 3 months post-op Finally starting to see a little bit of growth in the frontal area 😁 I have not cut my hair since around 1 month. The donor area looks a bit patchy on the sides which you can see on the last photos in better lighting. I hope it is just temporary. The vertex area has not started growing yet and I have got a lot of pimples there. I tried putting on some Terramycin lotion a few weeks back and might have seem a slight improvement but I didn't use it daily as I probably should so cannot evaluate if it actually helped or not. I will try it again and be more strict w
