  1. I'm new to the transplant world and had a couple questions about temporal point reconstruction. I know it's a very crafty procedure that requires artistry and experience because of the angling. What are some doctors you recommend for such a procedure? Any outside of the U.S.? Thanks in advance!
  2. Thanks John! I am generally very happy with the result. I will be honest, there are some spots in my donor area that even I can't tell were harvested lol
  3. Thank you for the input, I think at this point I will continue to maintain what I have and prepare to get a touch up if need be in the future.
  4. As I keep hearing, sometimes even when we get a solid result we always want a little more (when you look at your own hair everyday, you always find something wrong or good). So I am going to post some before and after pics of my 1800 graft FUE procedure from Tijuana Mx (Dr. Cortez). I am generally happy with the result, but on my right side it seems a bit lagging? Maybe it's the natural progression of my loss? I also keep my hair shorter than most guys with a transplant so that might be a factor. And to be fair I have not used finasteride religiously this year, but looking to get back on a steady pace. Here is the order of the photos: First 5 pics are pre op. 2 weeks post op. 2 months. 3 months. 4 months. 5 months. 6 months. 9 months I'm outside. 11 1/2 months 4 photos and donor area with double zero blade. LAST 5 PICTURES ARE RANDOM PICTURE I CAN NOT DELETE I would like to get your opinions on the overall result? I will admit I'm a bit sensitive on the topic, so please only constructive criticism. Thank you so much in advance!
  5. I have a couple questions for the veterans. Keep in mind, although I'm very happy I also have some thoughts: 1. Is it normal to not achieve the density you want with 1 transplant? 2. Is it normal for the transplanted hair to be darker than native hair? 3. Is it normal to have a transplanted spot that seems to have lagged behind in terms of density?
  6. I am! I think for my age my doctor did a good job of being conservative, but still providing me with good hair coverage. Plus the placement of the hair shafts is on par with what I remember as a young 20 year old. I can either keep it as is or go back for a small procedure for density, either way I can live happy with what I have now 👍
  7. Absolutely! They were terrific in answering all my questions thoroughly and patiently. Their English is pretty good, but some things I had to say in Spanish. So that would be the only thing I would tell someone who is considering a procedure with them. Go in with a direct game plan and communicate that.
  8. you can use my mole as a reference point of how much grown is being covered with 1800 grafts.
  9. I just wanted to say thank you all for the positive words of encouragement. I know I still have a ways to for my final result. Even still, I know some guys go back for a second or third procedure for density but for now I am riding this one out and see what happens. Additional details: I went with Dr. Cortez in Tijuana Mexico. I am also on Fin (5mg 1 once a week), Ketoconzole 2% shampoo and minoxidil.
  10. *DEEP BREATH*.... I am a first time poster and I am a bit nervous to do so (I tend to be a shy person by nature). I won't go into too much detail at this point but just go with the essential facts: I got a hair transplant almost 9 months ago (9 months in 10 days) and I just wanted to get some alternative opinions of where I am at in the hair growth process. My procedure was 1,800 grafts FUE, all on the hairline. Thoughts of the overall progress? *My personal opinion is that the yield looks a little low for the amount of grafts that I got so far. Is it possible that more will grow in the coming months?
