😂😂 cracked me up that comment.  I had the same problem and unfortunately my head was red for 2/3 months, I was lucky I could wear a hat due to outside work to cover the redness but in meetings I had t

LOL - first thing that happened when I walked in the office was someone commenting loudly on my "new hairstyle."  Someone asked if I was going for the kpop boy band look....LOL - I ended having to dir

This happened on the 8th day.  I saw the graft itself come out...looked like a root or something lol and then blood started gushing.  It was one of those frontal singles that he uses to zig  zag with.

Month 2 update - most of the hair has shed.  A bit concerned at this point as not a lot of stubble/regrowth has happened.  Also, not sure if this a coincidence or not, but I suddenly have a lot of gray hairs....comparing my pre-op pictures on page to now...it is a significance difference.  Donor area also does not look good.

I actually inspired one of my coworkers to go get a HT.  He said he had been looking for awhile and after I did it...seeing how people didn't really think it was a big deal nudged him to  just do it.  He actually just went to a local HT doctor, Ken Williams.  What was surprising about his donor area after coming back 1.5 weeks after operation...you couldn't even tell  he had a HT.  No scarring, no redness...no holes.  It was amazing compared to my donor area....

Yea any updates, I had diep and I had same shockloss in donor and recipiant area, it will improve over time but I cant say 100% it all will come back.

Its just a tradeoff with with him. He constantly has patient reviews with bad donor areas in exchange for his homerun hairline work he sometimes gets. Hes obv doing something different than the other top docs because his donor areas are crushed after surgery compared to his peers. Most recover just fine but it imo his ratio of stuff like this occuring is far higher than baseline.

Sorry all - not much was going on at month 4, which was discouraging, however I should have still taken some photos for others to reference.  Here it is at a little over 5 1/2 months.  Still not super thrilled and getting concerned about the density.  I still have to cover it and can't brush it normally because you can still definitely tell something has been done.  

Harvested area looks kind of thin, but definitely not super obvious at this point.

6.25 months at this point, I think it is getting a little better day by day, but would not be happy at all if it stops here as it is still thin and frankly looks obvious.  A few pictures from slight distance under dimmer lighting and a couple up close with harsh lighting.  I don't comb it like this right now...I usually just leave product out and let it fall down to cover at the moment.

Looks good at a distance, try not to track things by .25, it’s only gonna drive you crazy. At this point, go month to month. 
 

6 months is halfway through, I’d expect more changes to come, but you may always see some scalp under bright harsh lights, even I do, just be mindful of that, aside from that the hairline looks great, and thanks for keeping us updated happy growing brotha 🙌🏼
