Looking good MichealD, the worst is almost over. Your donor looks absolutely Fab and also your recipient looks good too( you started with a much better situation than many of us).

I am one month post my surgery at ASMED and I believe I’m going through the toughest time of my life 🤦‍♂️
 

Hey Jimmy58! Yeah, I love my donor area, you literally cannot tell that hair was extracted from my back of my head which is a huge sigh of relief. And I believe that medications such as finasteride, dutasteride and minoxidil have helped me save much hair.

Regarding you being at one month post, my brother there is nothing worse than examining your hair every single minute of the day. You did the hard part which was the hair procedure, so try your best to sit back and relax. Workout, eat healthy.. continue on with life, your hair will eventually grow with time! Also make sure to utilize any hair medications you are on. 

I will keep posted and if you have any questions let me know. Thanks for the comment.

This looks like super refined work. That’s a great distribution of the grafts. I think you will have a excellent result.

Look forward to your subsequent updates! 

Hello JohnAC71,

I appreciate the positive feedback! I am praying that you are right and that my outcome will look good. I am doing my best to give my hairs the best chance at growing. I am taking my dht inhibitors every single day, I use minoxidil, and a keto shampoo 4x a week. I also take multivitamins, fish oils, msm pills, eat a lot of fruits and veggies and drink a lot of water every single day. 

We are all in this together and if I can help anyone achieve good results, I do not mind sharing my updates. Stay tuned!

Looks great man! Judging from the number of grafts you got, your looking at a very dense well filled in result! Excited to see the 6 month and beyond photos

Praying you are right brother 🙏

I will make sure to keep up with my monthly updates! Thanks for the comment.

Hey man, good job on your write up, work looks clean and your progress seems to be just kicking off. Good luck!

Hey there,

I appreciate the kind words. Me at the (2.5 month approaching the 3month mark) is better than how I was before my transplant. It is so liberating to have done something about hair loss which has taken over the past 10 years of my life. 

I got a lot of shit for wanting to get a hair transplant from my family... funny how they all like my results now. I'm just glad I listened to myself, instead of shaving all my hair off.

Anyways thanks for the positivity!

African american type of hair is apparently extremely difficult for HTs but the work on you was pristine. And bc your hair is naturally curly is really hides the donor area very well. On top of that being darker complexion makes the ugly duckling phase not as noticeable as you don't really see the pink in the recipient area. 

Looks good!!

Man I really am thankful for all of the uplift this community has provided me!

I have heard that AA type of hair was indeed difficult to work with but maybe because I am half Mexican my hair was somewhat easier to deal with?

Regarding my donor area, I absolutely love it! I cannot see any scarring at all, which is such a relief. And you are right, the pink recipient area is non detectable to others. I no longer stress going out in public without a hat :)

Thanks for the comment and the Asmed team!

Hope everything turns out the way you want. Fue has gone a long way. I remember just a few years back most doctors wouldn't do fue on AA hair, only fut

Yeah fut was a no go for me. I am in the process of joining the military as an officer, so having to have my head shaved in the service made fut a guaranteed no.

Thank god for medical advancements.

You’re welcome!

Getting criticism from friends and family when simp tell them their HT plans usually is how it goes for mostly everyone..and yes, when they see the results looking good they almost always come around being more positive about it.

Sometimes it's best to listen to your own intuition. I'm glad i did! Hopefully it'll all pay off :)
