Hey guys,

I wanted to share my journey as it was this site that gave me a lot of great insight into picking out Dr. Konior along with seeing results and answering all of my questions. This procedure was done in early October and I've posted my Pre op photo, immediate Post op and also one month update.

I'm more than happy to answer questions and hopefully I can be a resource to those who are thinking about having the surgery. Dr. Konior and team are extremely transparent and diligent from start to finish. Don't let the waiting list scare you off, it's absolutely worth the wait.

Here's the breakdown of grafts

1 -214

2-1066

What sort of coverage are you expecting from this? Getting crown work done myself with Dr. K. But will likely only be adding about 1K to crown.

@Melvin-Moderator I wanted to come up with something clever! Thank you! This is my second procedure with him and I'm extremely optimistic about my results

@RecessionProof I'm very excited as well! The main reason why I wanted to share this experience is because I didn't find a lot of updated crown work on here in general. Knowing that I wanted this information to understand it better, I only imagined how many others were wishing they also had it as well.

@champybaby I'm expecting to get pretty good coverage. Originally was told that 1500 grafts would be sufficient so I know the extra amount can only help me out. Despite the crown being the "black hole", I'm confident it will blend in nicely with my natural hair. He did ask if I would be okay with shaving the recipient zone as the "peach fuzz" was just taking up space and an obstacle to place grafts correctly. I obliged and am very happy that I did to help yield the best possible result.

Quite a big area to cover.  I'm hoping to get away with 500ish although my crown is not as advanced as yours and I have thick straight hair strands.

Thanks. Yea, I'm going to be following this thread closely. This my deal fwiw.

Dealing with the crown sucks. Used to have it where two dashes of concealer was all I needed to look good. Now I'm using a lot more and I'm over it. Can't wait for my procedure with Dr. K. Really hope someone cancels!

Keep us posted man!

A couple more months and you should start seeing things, but you know the routine already

Congratulations on what will most likely be great results, Dr. K is definitely one of the best out there!!

Noticeable improvement from last month. Things definitely starting to happen. Next couple of months should be interesting.

Any update? I'm kinda curious to see how things go with this one (pattern of hair loss is pretty similar to mine)...

And if you guys are getting bored watching your crown come in, I'm waiting on my procedure! 

Although, this is great for me as I'm seeing Dr. K and have two recent crown procedures that will help me make a decision. So thank you!

Everything is looking good, it looks like you may have suffered some shock loss, but the fun part should start now.
