LOL!

Maybe provide us with more pics/documentation so we can help more.

Take a pic under the same lighting of the same area every 2-4 weeks and post it so we can provide more feedback. Otherwise its just us guessing what's happening.

5 months is still early, check out the “are Dr. Dieps results real” thread. There is a giy on there who looked disastrous at 5 months now at 9 months is recovering well and improving each month. It’s a slow process for some.

Probably not very many NW 7's for the obvious reasons but then again there are NW 7's who understand their limitations and have adjusted their goals and expectations accordingly.

okay 

Sorry, I'm going crazy because I feel like the surgery resulted in some shock loss...so the fact that I look worse than previous is very scary

It's not uncommon especially when there is significant native hair present pre-op.

But like Melvin stated, it can be a slow process.

But it will recover eventually...it just takes some time.

5.5 months is early and if you suffered shock loss it can take another few months to fully regain the hair you lost. 12 months is the minimum. Also, without pictures not much we can say besides be patient.

No pics , no help ! Can’t analyze things with just our imagination .. 

i posted pics before

literally the same. I see zero difference

I had 12 13K of the thickest hair imaginable transplanted. Why am I not seeing a huge difference? I have super thick hair like you see in asians

I haven't talked to him

Is this strictly a time thing? has there ever been a transplant by an excellent doctor with a huge amount of very thick hair transplanted with such a poor yield?

Why would u not ask him? That’s the first person you should ask instead of strangers on a forum. Contact him with pics or if u live close by book a follow up appointment. Maybe he can show you your scalp under a digital microscope to see if there’s any activity going on.

U could just be a slow grower .. do u see Any sprouts of new hair in previous bald areas? 

my crown still feels very bald

my doc told me he transplanted 1000 grafts (and all 3s and 4s) - which is roughly 3500 hairs in the crown. I figured it would be damn near total coverage

The crown is the slowest part to grow .. so if u hairline is growing right now ,. U should still be good .. I don’t think u should be panicking yet .. let the process run it’s course .. I just did my surgery .. n I barely look at my hair .. if it works then great .. if not , then there’s options , especially since u have good donor hair .. Don’t need to overstress urself .

How can 1,000 grafts be full coverage? The crown takes around 4,000 grafts alone for full coverage. You have unrealistic expectations.

4000 grafts maybe with avg hair thickness and avg density. I have probably double avg hair thickness and 30% better than the avg donor density (my yield was around 3 hair per grafts and I've been told avg is more like 2)

 

this is 2800 grafts with a huge crown area - significantly worse than mine and he's got great density

Never compare others with yourself, just because someone achieved a certain look with 2,000 grafts doesn’t mean you will. It’s more than just hair thickness.

It must be an equal surface area with similar hair characteristics, color contrast, etc.

i have identical hair texture to that gentleman 

What else is there beyond hair traits and donor density, both of which I was told I was in elite range by my doc?

the total surface area covered, degree of shock loss and rate of recovery (if applicable), hair transplant yield rates, exact graft placement .. to name some more

comparing it to others is really just a guide. It's basically how you look at any results on this site - you see what the HT doctor is capable of, and what potentially your results may look like, but it's more a best guess scenario. what EXACTLY did your doctor say regarding expectations? 

send us some pics documenting your growth over time. we all want to help.
