    6+ Year TS Progress - NW6 to full(ish) head of hair

    Hello!

    Seeing as it's been *years* since I last posted a progress update and as I'm in the process of setting up my new website and becoming Danielle full time, it seems like a good time to post a new pic.

    I've moved my gallery of hair loss to here - Hair Transplant Pictures on my website.

    I'm really pleased with the progress in 6 years, going from a "full horseshoe" to being able to have a fringe again.

    There have been two contributors to my progress:

    Drugs
    Lots of female hormones and anti androgens.
    Finasteride & Androcur, though mostly Finasteride.

    Surgery
    Two HT procedures performed by Dr. Rogers (Rogers Clinic, Stratford/Rugby/London).

    1st, 1007 strip grafts to fix my temples and hairline.
    2nd, 2000+ strip grafts to further boost my hairline and provide a little more crown density.

    As it stands, I'm considering one more final set of grafts to finish the job, but as I still get lots of new hair growth to come so I'm hanging on 'till I'm sure there is no more. I'm also considering a scalp advance, so I'll be wanting to keep some donor area for after the procedure.

    Most of the advice on these procedures and medication has been based on the information I've gained here on this forum, so *huge* thanks to all the fantastic people who have had input into my success story so far

    *edit* I think I'm flatterd at the comments about me wearing a wig in the latest photo, however it's not a wig it's all my own hair

    It is dyed and styled of course.

    Cheers,
    Dani x x
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

    GeminiX I am so glad you came back! Your progress is nothing short of astounding!!!!!!!

    What stuns me is the length that your hair has grown...I always thought it would be shorter but thats stunning.

    Perhaps you should drop a line about your "transformation" so people get what you're doing.

    Thanks!

    I'm really pleased with the results, way beyond my expectations.

    And yeah, just in case anyone missed it I'm male to female transsexual, so the hair recovery is just one of the things I'm changing

    Yeah, those Fin sides are deadly.

    I used to run around hammering nails into planks of wood and climbing trees and stuff, then *blam* a day after I started Fin I'm suddenly into shopping and kittens

    what percentage of your hair growth is due to finasteride?
