4 MONTH UPDATE

The new hairs in my hairline having been coming through for a while now. They are much shorter and finer than my existing hair. 

My donor areas is continuing to improve.

I think I might be tempted to get some temple work done in the future.....IMG_4032.thumb.jpeg.4378bf5104f987e4d7ea045d76930f0d.jpegIMG_4039.thumb.jpeg.0e116daf862c6040270b8c553e5c2f62.jpegIMG_4040.thumb.jpeg.b64fed6c0f7749040b61ea75e070bab8.jpeg

Thanks for your supportive words @Melvin-Moderator 

 

It does not get any easier having gone through it three times before and knowing what to expect. 
 

I’m much happier with my hair now, as I was very worried about my donor area and whether it would be thick enough to look normal. Those worries have now gone, so any improvements from here on in will be a nice bonus.

My growth rate was also a bit slower after my second surgery.  I think that's fairly typical for some.  Looking good!  Glad your pleased.... and keep growing!

Cheers @JohnCasper For the positive comments and encouragement throughout.

Really pleased with density in my hairline, even though those new hairs are very fine. Looking forward to seeing the final result....just a shame you have to wait so long!

7 MONTH UPDATE

Here are my 7 month update pictures. There is a definite improvement, even though I am no longer taking any hair meds. I have noticed some shedding recently as I have been taking a high dose of a medication abs there is clinical evidence of hair loss. Hopefully I won’t be on that for long. I’ve definitely noticed my hair is not quite as thick as it was.

After posting the pictures a few days ago, I decided to shave my head! My hair was getting a bit long and I was unable to get to the barbers due to the Covid19 lockdown. Besides, my partner has been wanting me to do this for a while, as she much prefers a shaven head. Interestingly, she really does not care whether I have hair or not. I quite like the shaven look, although some SMP towards the crown might improve it. I think I will grow it back over the next few months, so I can see how it looks 12 months from my HT.IMG_4452.thumb.jpg.1ddcc4e32fbdbab1bfa8e6d85feae939.jpgIMG_4453.thumb.jpg.5e89884b9b02f699f8d6f1d075de5dfc.jpg

Ha ha! She's 36 and I am punching well above my weight with her. We've been together since 2011 and I had my first HT, back in 2013. Although she has always supported me in getting my hair transplants, it has been something she does not think is necessary, and probably a waste of my money - but she has never said that. The surgeon who did my last HT, Dr Arshad, told me his wife does not care about his hair either. I think we (men) place much more emphasis on it that many others. It is something that bothers me though, and always has done. I would be a NW6 now without any work, so have probably maximised my hair from just hair grafts alone. I am thinking of using some beard grafts in the future to add density to my crown. 

 

My donor is a bit depleted, as you would imagine from over 9,000 grafts. I have attached a close up picture for you to see. When this grows out, the donor looks fine. Not sure I will keep this haircut, probably just whilst in lock down for the next 10 weeks.

Your hair looks great shaved, the donor isn’t that bar for 9k grafts.

Thanks @Melvin-Moderator It's just the back of my head where there is a visible line where my thick hair is that bothers me a little, which contrasts with my crown area and thinner hair (don't know the exact terminology for that). When my hair is a bit longer it is much less noticeable. I am quite pleased with my donor area, from a normal distance that most people would stand it looks fine, it's just the contrast between the thick part of my hair and thinner/balding area. I imagine SMP might help with that if I wanted to keep my hair this short.

^ That is true, heck there's this video on YouTube, where a guy tries out Toppik, you can literally hear the disdain in his wife's voice. He asks her if it worked, and she was like "ughh idk" knowing damn well it worked like magic haha i'll try and find it.

Surely looks aren't everything @hairlossPA? Aren't other things important.......? I can see why that would make them feel more secure. There is also evidence in many relationship journals that women are attracted to intelligent, funny, and charismatic men. 

The point I was trying to make is that not every girl is shallow to worry about whether a man has hair or not, and that we (men) probably worry about it much more than women. Further, if you end up with a girl/guy who is that shallow, you are with the wrong girl/guy.

Ha ha - this is brilliant! 🙂 I guess it almost depend on your head shape too. My missus likes the shape of my head and thinks I pull off the shaved look really well.

Ummm, that might always be the case  @hairlossPA regarding women being happier with less attractive men,  according to this study that tested the matching hypothesis theory (regarding physical attractiveness among gender)https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0146167211409947 

These researchers at Berkley,  found evidence for matching among couples on physical attractiveness.

 

This could be whole new thread in itself! 🙂 I wonder if this has changed in recent years given the number of people using dating apps/websites to attract partners.

of course looks aren’t everything. I don’t even remember the exact article I read. I just remembered it as a headline I saw a long time ago. A quick google search can take you to any number of them. Not sure how scientific they aren’t. I haven’t read them in a while.
