4200 FUE 3.5 years post op

Recommended Posts

I have noticed a lot of guys who seem suprised that they dont have a lot of growth at the 5 month mark recently .I had my transplant 3.5 years ago I never did show pics form transplant up to now .First few pics pre-op ,then  a few days post op . .   I banged my head day after the transplant thats why there is a long scab on the left side also knocked the front right as well didn't seem to affect the out-come thankfully .

 The last 13 pics taken today [19/8/2018 ] so 3.5 years later still going strong ,some taken with flash ,some without ,and 2 taken outside . Last time I  will post pics on here ,except maybe to get advice on whether I should go for a second one later to thicken up the crown and mid-scalp ,really don't want to mess around and do damage to the grafts .I am 55 and maybe I should be thankful it has been a success and live with a slightly thinning crown besides with Toppik  it pretty looks full anyway . No fibers in any of the pics .   Apology  not all pics in order  ,last pic is 5 months 1 week post op  ,second last pic 4.5 month mark. Just shows you the 4.5 - 5 month mark is just the beginning of growth . Last pic how it looks in the morning straight out of bed before combing .

Very good post and very helpful for anyone in the waiting phase. Tremendous improvement after 5 month.

At the Moment there is a lot of pani in the Forum.  

Cheers man.. its not perfect but been a game changer for me ..as you can see from pre - op pics not a lot on top ..I didnt mind the receding at the front so much but when I got the full horse - shoe  look that was when I decided to do something about it .

Wow, what a great transformation, beautiful.

Thanks wheretogo  ,  it's sad really that hair can make such a difference to someones's appearance  and self esteem, but at least there are options now, and hope my post will give hope to guys who are in the early stages of the journey .

tbh I saw continued improvement after the 12 month mark  OK not new growth but the hair thickened and became more natural looking

P.s. I really appreciate members posting pics of their hair transplants years later .. it’s always everyone biggest fear .. will the ht holdup . Or will  we be left with an island of hair .. N it definitely does.

Cheers Legend ,well your hair is in a lot better nick than mine was before the transplant ,no reason if  you choose the right surgeon  and look after yourself, I'm sure you can achieve    a full  head of hair for the rest of your natural . 

I agree it's great to see results 3-4 years post op ,so many posters stop after 7- 8 months .

great result. who was your surgeon? FUT?

Thanks  hairlossPA     I apologise  I was in a rush when I made this post ,really should have given a bit more information .I went with a  Doctor called Dr Resat in Turkey he was with Longevita at the time [middlemen]   he is working independently  now . All he did was draw the hair-line and issue meds etc ,  2 techs did the rest ,he did supervise up to a point by checking in during the op .  

OK I was lucky and I always felt the techs knew what they were doing but  I wouldn't recommend for anyone to take same risk  ,sure there are great techs out there and they can be trained well ,but so many variables in in this game, and if I knew then what i know now I certainly would have gone with a recommended Doc like Dr Erdogan or Dr  Bhatti  who I could have afforded at the time .   I paid 1750 pounds so for my second one for the mid-scalp into the crown I will pay more ,I am seriously considering Dr Maras in cypress .

Thank you Melvin ,  yes I will do the crown at some stage, one of the pics shows the crown ,but in favourable lighting ,in the next few days I am going to show it in the same light as I  took the front pics for comparison    to get the forums opinion  on how many grafts it will need  ,and your opinion will  be invaluable  [ of course I will get docs evaluation too]    .   I am delighted with my transplant but be great to get more coverage in the crown, my plan is to get the back of the mid-scalp maybe 1500 to 2000 grafts going into  the crown ,if a success I will be able to comb the hair back and pretty much cover the crown .

In a funny way crown balding always bothered me more than the frontal recession   I seem to remember we had this discussion a while back which is worse , and of course you are right the most important thing is the hair -line and front .
