Hey guys,

so 11 months post op.

after i shampoo my scalp if i don't comb the hair and just dry it the hair kinda clogs together and you can see thin areas in the recipient which won't be that noticeable if you comb the hair.

planning to go to a second HT in about a month. what is the "real" view of the situation?

another thing, is it "smart" to do second HT just 12 months post the first one?

first picture- without comb

second picture- after combing.

its perfectly ok to have a second procedure 12 months post op- I had my second FUE about 12 months after my first

So your first procedure was to your hairline and frontal zone? which in your pics looks pretty good.

I assume you're contemplating a 2nd procedure for your midscalp area?

I think the hair clumping up together is more due to the texture and curl of your hair at that length. If your hair is cut short and you see good overall density and the hairs spaced well it should show that there is good coverage. Just my opinion though

Thanks PlzRespond,

i'm going to shave my head before i go to the second procedure so i will see what with the density over all.

my dilemma now is how to divide the grafts.

let's say 3000-3200 that needs to cover mid scalp and crown area + little bit of add density to the front.

maybe the best way is to do the crown and add density to the front because those areas you can see from behind and when people looking at you and the left grafts put in mid scalp?

maybe the middle

still have some strong hair there that could stay also?

appreciate opinions.

Totally normal especially due to your curly hair. It looks thick once it's combed, so the simple solution is to comb your hair before going out 😊  I would leave the front alone and concentrate on covering the rest of the balding area.

i guess i will know for sure in about a month when i shave my head.

i know i should deal with the crown area from behind and sides, but i would rather add density to the front and maybe leave the actually middle of the scalp alone, i mean the really middle that you can see only from above.20190122_144720.thumb.jpg.0f216cf664ab1869c55b95e1fd8912b6.jpg

It's a good idea to leave certain areas at a lower density. It's all about strategically placing hairs where they will have the bigger impact. Even if you don't leave that area totally alone, you can still tell the Dr to go with a lower density there in order to get more where you really want them.

I agree with the person who advised to leave your frontal area alone for now.  It's plenty good (when you aren't in a hair transplant forum taking closeup photos of it) and you still probably have a few months of thickening/final growth there left to go.

If you do this, you can address your crown loss with a couple thousand grafts.  If you want, you may be able to avoid shaving that lovely head of new hair, too.  When my crown was done I had FUT and didn't shave at all, which helped keep things a bit more out of sight, out of mind during recovery.

I was told that i don't need to shave my head, but i can't help myself, i need to see what's going on with the density in the front.

i really really really want to add density to the front, but i am nervous it will harm the transplanted hair and besides 300-400 less grafts really going to make a lot of change in the mid and crown?

Hey, home1212,

yea, first procedure was hairline and frontal zone.

pre op picture-

really nice result from your 1st procedure, amazing difference, also looks natural with good density, I would not worry about the front at all unless you feel you there are areas that need a touch up, good luck in your 2nd procedure -

Thanks mate, Dr Maras is awesome.

it was important that it will look natural and blend good.

have almost another month to the second procedure and you guys right, i would probably do mini touch up behind the hairline, really small amount and the rest to mid and crown.
