2 months Post op Update

I was going to post photos but realised there's is very little difference between my last update at 6 weeks compared to now 8 weeks. Still havnt had a hair cut so my donar area has really grown well , looks strong and healthy. No new growth yet I have a lot of native hair so it's hard to tell what's happening. Feeling sharp stubbly type hairs on the crown if anything. I've purchased a 0.5mm derma roller for my temples ONLY- didn't have the temples transplanted and there is still small  hair in that area so that usually works well with derma roller even if  I get some thickening in that area it will make a big difference when shaping it up at the barber's- not expecting miracles but every little helps. Will post photos before I get my next hair cut in a few weeks.

Just adding some extra surgery information which I forgot to include at the start

Implanted density is between 46-48 cm2 for the frontal area and the crown is 46cm2. This of course is adjusted when implanting in areas where there is plenty of hair already. The bare areas represent the higher end of the cm2 such as 48 and 46.

2.5 months (11 weeks) Post-op Update - Asmed

So it's been 2.5 months since my surgery at Asmed with Dr. Koray Erdogan. Below are my photos I took today. Still have not had a hair cut will be doing it tomorrow but only the sides - maybe No.2 and leave the front and top. All the redness has gone (many weeks ago) and i stopped shedding a month ago. The crown shed quite a lot post op but i managed to not shed as much in the front although still shed a fair amount. From reading other guys' threads the 3 month mark is where most people tend to start to see very early stages of sprouting and black dots appearing. I have a few black dots on the crown and a fair bit more in the hair line. Can already see a rough faded lining of the new hair line all be it just a few dots. This is the hardest stage because nothing much happens after you have finished shedding and start seeing sprouting. Apart from the very front my  hair is basically back to where it was pre-op which is normal. It is now just a waiting game. Usually between month 3 and 4 is where I've seen people start to sprout so fingers crossed. The donor area has really grown out a lot and feels very thick and healthy so going forwards I should have a good number of grafts remaining. I don't think ill post anymore updates till the hair really starts sprouting so maybe in a month.

I think you’re on track at the 2,5 month mark, regrowth of transplanted hairs is just at the beginning (or soon will be). It is a tough waiting game my friend but in the end it will be worth waiting.

 

Looking forward to more updates!

 

Wish you well and happy growing!

It looks like you have some early growth when comparing to the preop pics which is a great sign, looks like it's heading in the right direction

4.5 month post op update - Asmed- Dr Koray Erdogan 

hey guys it's been a little while this is my 4.5 months Post op update. Bare in mind that I had a lot of native hair as well so might be an idea to check out my pre op photos at the start of the thread.

Hair line is way ahead of the crown at this stage. In fact alot of the hairs in the very extreme of the hairline did not shed. There is np sign at this stage of any multi hair grafts at the very front so happy about that.I'm feeling small sharp or spikey  hairs on the crown although I can't physically see them at this point. I spoke to another doctor last night about this feeling of spikey sharp hairs and he said that's not a good sign (very surprised as I thought that is sprouting) and that I should tweeze transplanted hairs out that are not growing otherwise I'll get pimples. Don't understand that at all.

It's only 4.5 months. In normal room light it looks good but then under light it looks very see through and actually the other doctor said it shouldn't be see through at this many months which again I think is horse shit. By the way this other doctor was not my doctor. Let me know what you guys think particularly Melvin would love to see what he thinks as well as Spex.

To be honest, at 4.5 months this is really good. The outline of the hairline is strong and in 2-3 months it will be filled in. This has the makings of a homerun.

Thanks. I really hope so. I was a bit down in the dumps with what Dr. C said. What do you think of what was said ?

Could you also show us a picture of your temple points?

Didn't get the temples done. Right now I have a zero fade so you can't really see it anyway. If you go to my pre op photos you can see it.

At 4.5 months, I wouldn’t think anything of it. Not the best reputation that doctor.

@FarsanUk

What doctor meant was that these might br transplanted grafts shafts that have not shed or are stagnant (acting as foreign body) and could be blocking a new hair from growing. You can tell by tweezing them. They should come out easily .

I think he genuinely gave you good advice. You should look into it, might be the reason crown is behind.

Don’t stress yourself the crown is very often behind the hairline. My crown took the full 18 months to really mature.

As others have said for 4.5 months you are well ahead of the curve which is very indicative of an excellent result!

I'd be pretty excited if my 4.5 months looked like that, it does look ahead of the growth curve. Regarding hairs that never shed but aren't growing, I've read that the growing hairs underneath will eventually push these out but the process takes a bit longer than if they had shed on their own.
