Hopefully your right, since i searched in the web, and i found its actually true that hairline would appear slightly lower after the swelling subsided.
Also other thing that i wished i looked at is adding some hair to the temporal area, since it would reframe the face better and reduce the area of forehead. However i am a 34 year old, and i found multiple articles not recommending temporal hair restoration before the age of 35, because the hair loss will progress further at this area.
Yeah, many credible sources (including the clinic) say it often takes up to 18 months to see the final result. The clinic also said that I'll likely be slower to mature because I'm not on finasteride. Not sure why that would have any effect on DHT-resistant donor hairs, but perhaps it's true.
Also, if Bloxham's estimates for growth (and, by extension, my model) are right, growth actually accelerates on the average grower up until 10 months, so I should theoretically progress from being 64% complete to 90% done in the next two months.
Yeah, I see what you’re saying, and I agree, still more time for improvement, I actually saw new sprouts ht hairs even close to my 10th month in the frontal area, and maturation really improved for me about after my 12th month but I believe I am a fast grower so I wouldn’t call it a final result for you yet.
And just to prove my point, @CosmoKramer, see the pics I just took with my microscope. Still looks like there's plenty of immature hair. If all of the fine, thin hairs in the pictures are transplanted hairs, I have a lot of improvement ahead of me. On the other hand, if they're actually miniaturized native hairs, then I might be f*cked, but I don't see any reason at the moment to believe that's the case.
