wow this looks amazing :) you must be so happy !

I got a lot of good advice from the guys on this site.  I didn't go with any of the suggested doctors from this site.  It is very hard to remain objective when giving a review, and people end up being subjective.  I really see no sense in posting a review prior to one year.  I have see people post reviews after a few weeks, and you really don't know anything at that stage.

The visual improvement past the one year mark may very well be attributable to hair caliber maturation.

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

LOL, I really didn't realize how bald I was.  I never could nail down the Norwood Scale.  Would you say I was a 5?  I remember after my first transplant in 2011 thinking how great I looked until a few years later when I caught a side view and knew I needed another transplant.  I certainly don't look like I did at 17,but for me it is great.  Me at 17.

Yes Oh Guru, that may be the case, but that is so hard to measure.  Your posts are always some of the best on the forum.  KUDOS

I wish more guys would post 18 month reports, because it is then you can view more complete results.

It is indeed possible to measure hair shaft diameter and the  +/-  differentials which are many times acute...IMHO it should be done before and after any procedure is performed.

Why?...it is because anyone who has MPB is going to experience some level of hair shaft diffusion.  and then when hair shaft diameter is again measured between 12-18 months post-op in the recipient zone, the patient will clearly see that density alone is not solely what provides good visual coverage, it is also replacing thin diffused hair with terminal hair shafts...this is especially noted with those individuals who have a diffused pattern of hair loss.

Dazed, you got some very nice results and I think you look great with growing your hair out to a longer length....and those of us who have received HT procedures tend to want to grow our hair out...I mean it is so nice to once again have what we lost!

The same outstanding visual results can be said for myself, Melvin, and countless others within this community who choose to grow their hair out to length...😀
