2 MONTHS

Hey guys, it's been two months now since I had my surgery. Still a bit red but it's slowly fading. Also I think I am starting to see the first stages of some growth! You can only really see this with flash and zooming in but it is looking promising in a previously fully bald area

Also if a moderator reads this, please check my report on this thread thanks

3 MONTHS

Hey guys, just thought I'd do another update since another month has passed. I'm stuck indoors like most people so it's making the growing phase a little easier until the redness completely fades. There has been a small amount of growth but nothing really noticeable without the flash on a picture. Here is a photo with the flash and one that shows more what it looks like in real life

16 WEEKS

Hey guys. Just a quick update, hair is starting to grow now. I had hoped for more progress at this stage but I understand I'm still early days. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

Are you taking finasteride and minoxil? I went to the same doc 4 Feb 2750 grafts and I use these both I’m really happy with the growth now on my 3 month mark on Monday.

FYI I also take B and D vitamin + fish oil in the morning.

Hey mate, yes I've been using fin since before the surgery but I only started minoxidil a couple of weeks ago. I only use minoxidil once per day before bed too

I think this photo is better to compare against the 3 month photo. The lighting is the same

4 MONTHS

Posting another update because I buzzed my head down to a number 3 guard. Couple days shy of 4 months, hoping to see some more growth this next month :)

looking forward to seeing more pics on this one

I'll update each month 👍I'm growing my hair out now that there is at least some hair at the front to grow the same length. I put together a side by side with 3 months vs 4 months and it's made me feel much better about the progress!

Not sure, I shaved it down to a 2 and it looks like this a week later

Maybe if I shaved it down closer to the skin they'd be visible

5 MONTHS

Hey guys, here are the 5 months pics. It's looking better and better the more it grows out and fills in. Next month it should be long enough to style back so I'm excited to see how that looks. I suspect I'll need a bit of toppik when it's styled that way. Let me know what you think

I'm about a week away from 6 months, I'll post high quality photos then. Here are a couple comparisons, one from a couple years ago and one from a couple months ago

This looks really good! Your doctor did a great job. What’s interesting is that your new hairline is so subtly similar to your original native hairline that no one is ever going to think you’ve had anything done unless you throw a before and after picture in their face. The results from before are night and day, though.
 

Congrats! It’s only going to get better from here.

Thanks for the encouraging words! When I was discussing my hairline with the doctor I told him that I always had a high hairline and the main goal was just to fill in the temples. Before the transplant I used to wear my hair almost sideways like a mini combover so it doesn't actually look like that different of a hairline. It just looks better to the eye and allows me to wear more styles and not worry about the wind.

However you will see in a week with the high quality pics that it's still too thin on the left side, and there is also one big multigraft on the left side hairline that I think stands out. Maybe I will start pulling a couple of the hairs out of it with tweezers in hopes of them not growing back lol. But other than that I am very happy so far! I think I will be completely satisfied with the final result after a year 😁

Here is an example of my childhood hairline which shows how high it was to start
