I had 2000 transplants with Dr. Tim Love in OKC in November 2011 and 2300 transplants Sep. 10, 2018 with Dr. Junaid Syed in Orlando.  Today marks 1 year since my last transplant, and I am very pleased with the results.  I am growing my hair out so it is looking better every day.  Looking back at that picture I didn't realize how bald I was

Wow! Massive result.

If I remember correctly you are a gentleman of over 70 years? Goes to show it's never too late to realize your dream of hair.

I moved from Oklahoma to Florida during that time.  I will be honest with you I choose Dr. Love because I knew of his work.  Dr Syed had good reviews on Realself, and it was a 1.5 hour drive.  Both doctors produce good results.  I am growing my hair out and the longer it gets the better it feels so I will post back at the 2 year mark.

I am 72 now, and I believe I had a very high survival rate for the transplants.  I really didn't realize how thin my hair was until I took that top picture.  I have always done everything for everybody else and I decided it was time to do something for myself.   I also did not experience many of the side effects of the procedure mentioned on this forum.  I never saw shedding or extended redness.  I had both FUT and then FUE.  Frankly, my biggest problem was dealing with the horrible haircut after FUE.

I remember reading something on JT's site about there's a "sweet spot" for growing your hair to make it look its best (longer seems to be better). the majority of patients you see posting here are 20-40 so it's great to see someone outside that demographic sharing their experience! thanks 😀

I agree there probably is a sweet spot that is best for each individual.  That is one reason I am letting it grow, and the texture has improved a lot over the last few months.  When you get older you look like a fool if you have a trendy haircut or trendy clothes.

Interesting, why do you say that? Is that because it looks like youre trying too hard or something?

The key for me is to maintain a natural look appropriate for my age, without giving up like so many do.  My hair hasn't gone completely gray. Subtle incremental changes like transplants seem to be the best way to go.  Dying my hair to get rid of the gray would probably look fake, and would probably be overkill.  We have all seen the women with pitch black hair or the guys who dress too young for their age.  I don't fit in with the Hip Hop scene, but I can still enjoy Hooters and Twin Peaks with friends. 

It is a whole different game when you get older.  Hell I may even get a facelift next.

I think some guys who are 60 plus in age feel they cannot have surgical hair restoration, and although for some their hair may have diffused or receded to a point where they are unable to meet their goals, some can in fact attain a meaningful visual transformation.

I will never forget an older man that I counseled who was in his early 70's, lost his wife and been a widower for some time.  He simply wanted to feel more confident in dating again.  He experienced a remarkable transformation and later told me that he had countless widows asking him out on dates!

I think aging with grace is key. I agree with Dazed trying to be too trendy and hip looks foolish past a certain age.

Yep, the key is that the restoration needs to look age appropriate especially regarding the placement of the hairline and overall grafted density level.

If you ever see me dressed like this - just shoot me.  R. Don Steel offers excellent advice on clothes.  One thing I hate is the new short too tight suit coats that make men look like Alfafa.  https://steelballs.com/
