It’s a really great result. A huge transformation for you that you’ll appreciate for years to come. Congratulations!   Few clinics could have done this in one procedure.

This is a huge improvement, congrats. 

 

To demonstrate the opposite side of the coin, it would be really useful to see what it looks like when you make it look “less flattering” by not styling it just so or by combing it apart or perhaps when it’s a little wet. These are perspectives that we often don’t see when a member showcases their results, and it would be really useful to have both perspectives. That said, I understand if you’d rather not. Either way, again, congrats.

And closer, the photos are a bit far away and low-resolution. It's hard to see the hairline at all.

Thanks for posting, it’s easy to see the results look good, as you say though still just an illusion, which is a hat we should strive for in hair restoration.

Hi Guys thanks for the comments. I will try and get some better resolution photos posted, together with it brushed forward and scrapped back. I may come across as Pro Asmed, I'm not - just trying to give honest feedback. 

Ben,

I will be honest the hairline does contain a few doubles, but it really doesn't bother me one bit. As I've said previously the general public are mostly unaware of grafts having multiple hairs (my experience anyway). I'm wearing my hair to one side so the hairline is no really visible. I can honestly say that my hair looks as good as it did 25 years ago, when I was in my mid 20's, obviously when styled correctly

It's true that the top has much more hair than before the HT and considering how you looked before the HT, the difference is huge, it's not an illusion but a real and big improvement as I have told you privately, even if it doesn't look that great when wet as you seem to suggest. However, I noticed that something about the hairline, you don' have to show it in detail or better resolution if you don't want to, obviously. Every person has the right to show what they want to show, even if sometimes it makes us more curious.

As Melvin and other people have seen, in my case I only had hair loss in the front area (NW3-ish) so, honestly, I expect a good density in the front and a good hairline as other people that had NW3 before the HT have achieved. I am at the third month mark, I have been told that now is when growth starts. :)

Ben,

I really have no issue showing the hairline or any other aspects of the hair. I had full input into its design and  I’m 100% happy with its shape / contour. I did think it was slightly low after the grafts were placed, but trusted the Dr that it would look good, I think it’s just right. As soon as I can get my hands on a decent camera, I will take some updated pics. The hair looks ok wet, obviously with 50% or less original density it’s never going to look like it once did. Only time my hair gets wet is when im washing it, so no worries there. 

3 months, nearing the end of ugly stage. Over the next couple of months, the magic will start. Hope you get a fabulous result.

HG1, congrats on awesome result.

so, you don't use any hair product to style your hair?, just wash and comb it?

Hi Wheretogo,

I just use a small spot of gel after washing and that's it normally. Have used hairspray, sprayed on to a brush and brushed through. This gives a fuller look and gives a nice shine.

Hi Guys,

Just a quick update. I'm now at 13.5 months almost post Op. I'm still finding improvement each month. Mostly  the improvement is in hair calibre. Sorry no pictures, will try and provide some ASAP. I need a good haircut to be honest. I was lucky enough to be in Istanbul recently and called to see the team at Asmed. Dr Koray checked my hair and was happy with progress. We did agree I could do with another 1000 or so grafts in the crown, and he suggested addressing this via a long hair fue transplant, also probably a few hundred in both temple areas. I will give it till I'm 18 months before I decide on any further surgery. I've stopped with the Fin due to sides, so the weakness in the crown is probably down to losing further original hair. A little Toppic covers in seconds, so no real issue. 

I was lucky enough to be shown around the new facility at Asmed. It is amazing, really hi tec with the feel of a five start hotel. The place is huge. Everything is brand new and absolutely top quality. Whilst there I met up with all the old faces including Sema & Suzanne who were amazing as always. Also spoke to a couple of the Techs who were on my surgery. Some on here will no doubt say its Asmed turning more into a factory to push through more patients. I would suggest its reinvestment to give clients better care, support and ultimately a better result. 

Also worth noting Asmed have changed their post care pack slightly. ATP spray only used now up to the first wash - which is better and  the foam has changed to more cream like application, which is used prior to the wash.

Hi Deb,

Yes really pleased thanks. Your write up  was one of the main reasons I chose ASMED as you know. The new facility is simply stunning and i'm sure you will be impressed. Say hi to Sema for me 😉. Not sure why you're  going again as your hair looks amazing, but the very best of luck.

I will say hello to Sema for you. Looking forward to seeing them all again. 

Most people on here are saying the same and perhaps I am being a little greedy but I know a small procedure will personally make the world of difference to me.

Cheers
