I think this is a failed HT. coming up to 6 months and very patchy or no growth... any Thoughts? Is it a failure?

Sadly it doesn’t appear to be success. What has the clinic said? Also why do you not want to mention their name?

your pre-op pic makes your hair look better than I think it is. The lighting isn’t good for a comparison also it looks like you combed your hair from sides into middle to make it look better - but I could be wrong, another clearer picture would help.

Im also not a fan of the graft placement throughout the scalp. It appears so spaced out.

Who was the surgeon/clinic that you went to? What have they said about this? Was this an FUE or FUT procedure? What medication are you taking? To me there are so many unanswered questions that you need to share and explore in order to get the feed back that you require to go forward to achieve your goals. Firstly your hair/scalp looks 'natural' and does not look scarred, etc. This is a huge plus! Also you need to take action re: the first questions I have put to you. I realise how upset you are feeling now (trust me I have been there myself for years) but there will be a way out. Several members here who have great looking heads of hair have had a first poor result from a transplant (sometimes even two poor results). Again I would just like to stress that as bad as you are feeling this will pass. You need to ask us more questions so we are able to help. Take care!

I hate to say this, but it’s not the HT, you’re losing your native hair. If you look at your previous posts, it was just the front that looked thinner, now it’s the entire scalp. That’s because your hair loss is progressing. You need to get on finasteride asap if you wanna save your hair.

Sorry to see this outcome at present.

 

With diffused thinning and especially if you are going to place as in your case, sporadically, low density and in and amongst native hair then you really do need to be on medication.

The surgery itself causes trauma and possible shock, so it really is paramount to be aware of firstly, that hair loss is progressive in itself, and secondly the surgery can induce some shock, be it through injections or damage to native hair as two factors..  The placement was very spread, so as a standalone result in itself it simply won't be there without the native hair as the primary aspect. 

 

i have to agree here with the comments to look into medication but from the placement for me at least, it was clear of the result in terms of hair transplantation what to expect. The unknown was how much you would lose subsequently and why it is really important to be educated on diffused loss and at times it is best to do nothing or get on medication prior to stabilise loss.  

 

Hopefully medication will help you and also your donor will also be able to give for another surgery. In any event I wish you all the best and hope your clinic  will be able to support you and guide you.

I agree with Melvin, it looks like you've gotten the transplant during a period when your natural hair loss is also aggressively progressing. Reading your posts about how stressed you are,  completely understandable of course, but this could also be a contributing factor to your hair loss. Its important to have a healthy diet, get regular sleep, minimize and manage all the stress you have as best as possible too.

I know this likely not the result you expected.  Stress can also cause big hair loss, luckily those are usually temporary.   How is your stress level.  How are you managing it ? Before the transplant how fast were you losing it?  Was it somewhat stabilize for at least a year ?

Man i feel your pain.  Im in a long term painful situation myself as well with issues created by doctors.  i am trying to get out of this mess and live in peace.  It has consumed so much of  my time, energy, family’s time, my health and overall well being.  
 

At the end of the day, your HT didnt yield well and if you lost hair, then why did you lose native hair within a year like this and so fast.  Did the Shock nd trauma from HT led to follicle death in surrounding areas?  There is a lot of ifs and buts, but the bottom line is, if you were prone to lose hair then any known miniaturization would have been evident when the doctor examined you at consultation presurgery right?  I mean that’s how doctors choose candidates right.  If he or she knew your goals then why proceed?  Or why fail to inform for that matter that you may lose more?  Bottom line is you should be happy and have what you went in for.  What has the doctor mentioned?

You're right @Sean but very few ethical doctors do this, most just want your money, they don't care about your expectations, especially the low cost clinics that Turkey is full of.
