This is before and after 9 months. Would this likely be my final result? I think I need a 2nd transplant, seem to be lacking real density in areas shown. Also is it normal for hair to be curly after transplant? received_561660281278791.thumb.jpeg.064239f5dee86707d4a96c95190d35b8.jpeg

How many grafts did you have done? In terms of growth, majority of what was going to grow has probably grown but may still have a little to go. Generally though, at 9 months onward's the focus will be on the transplanted hair maturing and thickening over the next few months. The curly hairs you refer to should mature over time and become more like the native hair.

It's a decent result and your face has definitely changed and improved. The hair will improve a bit, but don't expect major changes. Make sure you don't have unrealistic expectations, if you decide to get a touch-up.

Do you think it could thicken in them thin areas by month 12? What treatment would you recommend also?

The hairs that are already there may thicken, but I would be surprised if more hair grows in that area. Do I think you will look a little better by 12 months? Yes, but the change will be very subtle and not drastic. I think you should look at the big picture. The goal of any procedure is to improve your overall aesthetic appearance and to have more hair, which you have achieved. I would recommend hair fibers. That would solve any problem that you have with lower density problem areas.

Would you reccomend minoxodil along with finasteride? I might get a shorter trim so it's not as noticeable

Yes, I would definitely recommend minoxidil, I take it and it works really well.

minox will really help thicken each hair shaft, and improve overall perceived density at the hairline

I use it and without it it will look thinner as HT cannot implant hair to native density, maybe half that at best

Also to help hair growth/thickness besides biotin  MSM is a good addition, I take 4 gram a day split in two doses

Like the others have said, don't expect noticeable difference after 9 months.  Could get some thickening of the hair but your appearance will be about the same.  Great improvements over 9 months though.  I'm sure your pleased with your pre-and post- looks.  Regarding minoxidil, I'm sure it may be helpful but you have to commit to the medicine and that expense as well.  I had 5,125 grafts transplanted in 2012 and 2,000 more later and have never taken any medicine related to my hair.  Seven years later my wife (who is a hair dresser) can see no noticeable hair loss or change of appearance.  Everyone is different....I realize.  Best of luck to you.  Always good and diverse advice on this website.

I worry about minoxodil because of hair shedding though? I'm taking 1mg fin and 12,000 ug biotin at the moment

This looks like a nice difference overall! It definitely frames your face better. Can you post some better quality photos for us to see the transplanted hairline?
