8 Months Post Op Dr. Keene

Your hair is looking good! At eight months post-op you should be seeing roughly 75% of your growth on average. You should still have some thickening to come.

How do you feel about it? Big growth jump from 5 months. I don't know how I feel about the temple points. hopefully them fill in a bit more, but over all, you have come a good distance.

Most of us need a second procedure to thicken things up. Doesn't mean our first procedures were a failure. I think u have made good progress, but u may need a small second procedure to get you where u want to be.

I am also 7 months post from Dr Keene and also have issues with temple area. I went in only for hairline and while one side is filled preety well the other side (done by asst) needs a good amount of Toppik to hide the skin. I'm still holding out on a full review and pics but am wondering if hairline maybe just ain't her specialty....

I would suggest trying a different hairstyle. There is a sweet spot in terms of hair length that provides the best layering effect and coverage for a HT and yours is just a bit too long, imo. A shorter, messy look (with temple corners styled forward) I bet would work wonders. Remember, a HT rarely restores your actual density, so we're creating an illusion of fuller hair, and style has a lot to do with that.

 

Find yourself a good stylist (this will cost a bit more than your average barber) and don't be shy about explaining your situation. Not sure where you live, but in the New York area we have plenty of high-end men-only barbershop/salons that see lots of HT work. I found one and she totally understood the best way to maximize the hair I had and style it so it looked hip. Best of luck and good growing to you!

Thanks!! i will try to stylize it different, il go to a stylist this weekend, i actually got a new haircut, which helps a bit to mask it, but what i keep thinking is that , the immediate post op photo looks so full of grafts, that as of right now, have not grown, i mean if i had to shave my head and it looked like the post op i would be very happy with the result
