  1. This is phenomenal. What did you look like to start? Would love a before and after. This right here is the dream. Money well spent for a slam dunk result like this. Kudos to you for getting what you want.
  2. This goes to show why doing your research about HTs is important. Shock loss? No problem. It will work itself out. Love the knowledgeable approach. Early days. The best is yet to come. Will be following your progress closely!
  3. How are things coming along, friend? Hit us with an update when you can 🙂.
  4. In my next update I’m going to post some less flattering shots of my hairline. I think it’s important to be as transparent as possible. It’s far from perfect, but there’s still time. I feel your frustration. Your mature, adult response has been incredible, and I hope your final result comes through. You definitely deserve it. That said, if it doesn’t meet your expectations in the end, do you think you’ll go back for a second pass?
  5. Incredible. You must be thrilled. Will echo Melvin here. Your back is shredded. Goals all around! 😎
  6. Love your positivity, man. My guess is that’s gotten you far in life. The hairs are definitely thickening up, but it looks like the density in the first 6 rows and temple points is lagging behind still. The mid scalp and forelock have improved dramatically though. If you get a chance, it would be great to see a bird’s eye view of your hair. Thanks for continuing to provide regular updates. Your post is a clear, honest and well documented case for the forum. Looking forward to 8 months.
  7. I feel this constitutes an excellent result. Congrats and enjoy!
  8. I told Dr. Arika to choose my hairline. After the initial consult, I felt 100% confident that she'd take the most ethical and conservative approach possible. I was naive and pushing for a mega 3500+ graft session, but she said that was totally unnecessary. I hate to think what might've happened if I'd gone to Turkey. I feel good knowing that I have enough grafts left to bulk up my hairline and mid scalp area when I'm ready. Thanks for your continued support @BjornBorg
  9. Thank you! I've been on Finasteride for 20 years. I can't help but think that's a contributing factor, especially in my donor area.
  10. Sometimes I can't believe it's real. Completely changed the way I look at myself. Looking forward to the next 6 months. Thanks for checking in!
  11. When I saw your pics initially, I thought a result like this in a single pass was impossible. Truly stunning. Game changing result. Eugenix about to get hard to book. So happy for you.
  12. I'm not sure about the guard he used to do the back and sides. I've never had a haircut like this in my life. Thanks, man. Yeah, that's why I wanted to document my case on this forum and why I'll continue to update until the full 12 months is up. When I was researching Eugenix, I wasn't able to find a comp with my hair type nor was the clinic able to provide me with an example. Hopefully, my journey will be able to help someone else. I'm still hoping for some thickening and perhaps 1 more growth spurt. Haven't seen many new hairs emerging of late, so perhaps that phase is over for me. Either way my look has completely changed and my donor is A+. It's nothing but a win at this point. Thanks for stopping by my thread.
  13. It's been exactly 180 days (6 months) since my procedure. Got a fresh haircut this morning, and I'm super pleased with how things have turned out thus far. If this was my final result, I would be satisfied. There are a few areas that haven't reached maximum density and could be stronger, but I remain optimistic that these areas will fill in by month 9. Have included some outdoor shots in direct sunlight also. My care regimen remains the same. Honestly, I can't tell if the minoxidil is helping all that much because I still feel like I'm losing hair on my crown. Given my family history, the best I can hope for is mitigation. Perhaps I'll return to Eugenix at the 1 year mark for a quick hairline touchup and 500-700 grafts in the crown area. I definitely have a wee bit of hair greed now. 😁 Will continue to update every month. Hope you're all doing well! -Fluff
  14. Awesome progress. You've lost a decade, man. You using any products to style your hair or is this look au naturel?
  15. It’s really coming through now. You can see the hairline filling in, and the temple points are looking much better. It’s framing your face in a way that was absent before. Compared with where you started it’s a massive cosmetic improvement. My guess is that in a month it will be difficult to tell you had a transplant. Also, don’t feel the donor area is as noticeable as it was before. I feel your hair skin contrast is high which has amplified it some. Has Dr Sethi remarked on this at all? So happy to see so much progress. You’ve been a warrior of positivity through all of this. A real example for other slow growers on this board. Can’t wait for month 7. Keep it growing, man!
  16. Ha! Will definitely be changing my avatar when I've completed my 1 year journey. I'm sure the team @Eugenix Hair Science will treat you well. You'll be in world class hands with both Dr. Arika and Dr. Sethi. Will be looking forward to following your transformation! All the best. -Fluff
  17. The last 2 weeks of month 5 I saw an explosion of growth in my hairline. All the fine singles suddenly just appeared at once. Was a very encouraging sign. I wore a hat constantly for 20 years. Can't tell you what a relief it is not to reach for that every time I want to leave the house. Just a freeing experience. So thankful for the team @Eugenix Hair Science for coming through for me. Hoping my 12 month results will be poster worthy for them. Thanks for stopping by my thread!
  18. I had limited work done on my temple points. At first, Dr. Arika said I didn't need it, but I insisted on having a small touchup. They implanted 60 grafts on each side. I'm thrilled with the cosmetic effect from such a small number of grafts. I agree with. you that when a doctor does good temple points, that's a solid indicator of their overall skill. Thanks for stopping by on my thread. I'm really happy with my results thus far.
  19. Thanks man. The last 2 weeks have brought an explosion of growth. Your day is coming soon.
  20. Hair was long for the faux combover I was rocking. Now that I have a hairline, it’s going to be short cuts and fades for as long as I can keep what I’ve got! 😁😁
