3 months post-up, beefed up hairline from Dr. K


Recommended Posts

  • Senior Member

Had a second HT procedure for hairline density with Dr. Konior almost about 3 months ago.

Now have more hair in my hairline then I did before the procedure ;) and saw new growth at the 2 month 3 week mark which I reported to the clinic.

 

I don't think you can be more honest than wet hair closeups so just posting these for now, looks better dry of course and is still short from being shaved down.

Right side gaps in the front are filling in but left side is lagging still.

 

It's a long rough road after the procedure with the ugly duckling phase, having to explain to others where you were, some minor hairloss from dandruff etc. so the early growth is encouraging.

 

Edit: Added a pic dry, hope if it thickens I can wear my hair back instead of combed over.

I'm going to change this thread into my photo album eventually, but here is a comparison of my green screen shot at Dr. Konior's office three months and two days ago with a comparison today.

 

This is including having been shaved down to buzz level in the front, and I haven't been on Fin, MSM or anything so the new early growth is all entirely the work of Dr. Konior.

1,145 FUE grafts (3,152 hairs) with Ray Konior, MD - August 2018

763 FUE grafts (2,094 hairs) with Ray Konior, MD - January 2020

Proscar 1.25mg every 3rd day

1978Matt,

 

Bam! That's awesome. Must be the skill of Dr. Konior that's helping us achieve the early growth.

Most traditionally say new hair cannot grow until at least 3 months have passed.

 

Looking forward to your pics.

thanks all!

this site has helped me a million, I was basically in denial about my hair and scalp problems for such a long time, until I found this place back in 2010.

 

Spanker, your results and information on Dr. Konior were extremely timely and inspiring!

Helped me make a decision that has given me more confidence only a few months post-up.

When you get to a certain age, you start to accept everything is going downhill, exciting to know I will look younger than I did in my 30's in a few more months.

Thanks man, that is good to hear. I have to say, I am pretty jealous of your hair vs age. If I am close to your situation at your age, I will do the Ickey Woods Shuffle on stages at my son's college graduation. Based on your photos, it looks like you just needed a little tweek and you were better off than I was in my early 30's. BTW, I can't remember how many grafts you had done.

"Looks very very solid. Nice."

Thanks Spanker, your posts and results were the driving factor in me choosing Dr. K.

He is an amazing surgeon, the most under-rated for sure.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

"What are you using? Did the doctor recommend it?"

Since21, I am currently using this shampoo here by Kerium few times a week and also no shampoo on other days to avoid scalp buildup. I tried apple cider vinegar as well, works but makes your head stink like sh*t so can only use it on the weekends. Really been plagued by dry scalp so have been using anything can find to moisturizer it, got some cream from my dermatologist.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

"WOW nice hair mate i hope to see similar results with around 1400 grafts ( 3300+ hairs)"

Thanks manish1990, your work looks very clean and you went with a good surgeon. You should be rocking in a few months

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

"Nice 'DiCaprio' style haircut going on there."

Thanks 1978matt, can only wear it like that when its 100% dry but damn it's easy to style, hope it gets just a little thicker so I can wear it like when wet (looking to save time in the morning).

Rev333, thanks man been lazy with detailed photos just taking with webcam when can. Will post detailed ones later. I think I went just a little tad too low on grafts, I had most implanted on my weakest side but should've done another 100-200 where my hair was thickest too as I lost some from shock loss, dandruff or from stopping Fin not sure which one was biggest reason.

Dr. K's work is kicking the sh*t out of my existing hair, everywhere he planted grafts is growng like weeds.

7 months post-up, wet hair no shampoo

getting to where I want to be, almost able to wear it wet and just leave it after the shower

(one of my goals)

had to drop Fin recently due to some sides, will see how it affects my non-transplanted hair

 

biggest problem has been unrelated to the procedure, dry skin and peeling scalp/forehead some days.

have been using Aqua Glycolic shampoo as recommended by Dr. Cooley here

http://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/eve/173238-liposomol-atp-5.html

 

to say Dr. Konior is an amazing surgeon who really cares about his patients would be an understatement!

simply an amazing guy (recently had another small procedure and temple work by him :D )

Gorgeous hair- that avatar of yours looks like a young Alec Baldwin.... that is simply awesome! Congrats!

 

Ya that whole dry vs. wet thing is interesting.. I prefer to style my hair dry because it looks much thicker--- if you can get to the point of styling it like that wet-- damn! :)
