That looks Fabulous bro!

Looks like we've had the procedure around the same time - it is a wonderful thing that these transplants are turning out so well. Gotta love technology & the 2010's!

Hey guys, thanks so much. Really, this community is the reason that I was able to bring myself to and through this journey. It's a brethren really and we all suffer from the same frustrating problem.

 

HDude - Yes, I dug up some old photos of how I used to wear my hair. I started needing to comb it forward around 2004 I think since my hairline was quickly vanishing and the front thinned quickly. These are some samples of that which I found. I would never wear my hair combed back because even with Toppik there just wasn't enough hair there. You can tell that it was combed to cover the baldness, and these shots probably had toppik concealer as well.

Hair combed back, no toppik. My hair color is a medium brown, even though photos and lighting make the color shift.

 

During Post-op i had it shaved so Konior could maximize his results but he performs many surgeries without shaving since men have to get back to work. With the level of his work it's totally possible to go back to work after 2 weeks as long as you cut your hair correctly. The grafts grow in and your hair around the scar cover it up. I'm glad you followed my progress, that makes me happy it's helped people. Let me know if you have any other questions.

 

 

hsrp10 - Yes, I have remained on finasteride and romaine foam twice a day regularly. I have a thinning crown so I'm trying to keep that at bay.

Straight up balls of steel for that hair cut being so close. I could probably pull off something near that tight but I always just ask for a scissor cut because I am a sissy. Your hair looks fantastic.

That middle pic (with the blue background) is so similar to my forward-combing days (specifically, that nearly bald patch right above the hanging, wavy locks on your forehead)!

When I was at that point, I didn't know whether to comb forward or to comb backward.. it was a NO-WIN situation then. I'd just pile on the Toppik and try to fool myself into believing that it ain't that bad.

 

But now, comb forward, comb backward, no hair day is a bad hair day! :P I checked out your photos-- you have a nice pic where it's even combed to the side!

 

Its like when people say "any day above ground is a good day" -- that's how I feel now that I got my hair back.. and I'm sure you feel that way too brother!

 

I'm glad you like the community.. I hope you continue to post and support others who have yet to see the light.

There is no way I could have gone to work without a hat two weeks post-op. It would have been too obvious that I had work done. My recipient area was still very pink (I had it shaved per Dr. K's recommendation) and I would have had to shave down the rest of my native hair to match it, which would have exposed the scar. I think Matt's approach of taking 5 weeks off is more realistic in terms of healing sufficiently. But even then, my skin characteristics would have still made it obvious I had work done. It took a couple of months for the redness to fade and there's still some patchy spots from where I had acne.

 

That said, your case and several others on here are what inspired me to consult with Dr. K. And I had the opportunity to meet with one of his patients 2 weeks after he had his procedure. That was the final push I needed to book a date. 4 months post-op and I am cautiously optimistic.

true, it definitely is safer to take longer if you have your hair shaved. Taking all of that vacation or even time without pay still is worth it when you're doing something like this with the right doctor.

Looks amazing Sam. Do you have any more pics of the back of your head you could share? You can kind of make out a faint scar line in your shorter pics but its hard to tell.
