Month 3, should be slowly starting to see the improvements from this point and a few new hairs have started to sprout.

As my hair is getting longer it’s starting to look fuller anyway, although there probably is a slight improvement already.

Month 3.5, just had a haircut so few quick update pics. Hair is feeling much thicker than it was 2 weeks ago and things are finally starting to shape up.

Just over 4 months, hard to tell if there are any improvements as my hair is getting longer but I’m not really looking at it as much as I was. Hoping the temples will start to thicken up.

Ahh right I see, have you sent pics to any surgeons?

Yeah exactly man had to do something about it, hopefully can forget about hairloss for a few years once these grafts grow in.

FUT probably is the better option for a first transplant as you get a better yield and graft survival so looking back I maybe should have gone for that. It was the strip scar that put me off but from what Iv seen they’re actually pretty unnoticeable.

I hadn't heard this. I'm considering my first transplant and was recommend FUE with 3500 grafts. Do you think that's a bad idea?

You'll get more grafts over a period of time via FUT cos they basically cut a strip out of your head and then pin it back together leaving plenty more donor area for any future procedures. With FUE they have to take individual grafts over a larger area to compensate for gaps when the hair regrows.

I've just had a 3600 FUE a couple of weeks ago, I'll admit I would have never gone for the FUT.

How's your hair looking after your FUE?

It's only 17 days and a lot of the hairs are now falling out as expected. Preparing myself for a pretty sucky few months, but hopefully a brighter future.

Thanks for sharing. Did the surgeon tell you when the shedding would finish and when growth would start? Thanks again.

8 weeks was pretty much the rule of thumb for new hairs to start growing I was informed. One thing I will say is after about 9 days if the scabs are still solid and looking like going nowhere, I put a fair bit of Aloe Vera on and it softened them up amazingly and in no time all the scabs had gone. This was a big thing for me as I had very quizzical kids that I was trying to hide it from. Pics are the same day, before and after the aloe vera.

But that's not advice it's just what worked for me, some people's scabs aren't really ready to come off after 9 days but mine certainly were.

I wouldn’t say it’s a bad idea, all depends on your preference on whether you would mind having a strip scar, I prefer to keep my back and sides very short so it didn’t appeal to me.

Il be getting a skin fade in a few weeks so il post some pics after to see what it looks like.

Here’s my 5 month pics, I was a bit paranoid thinking I hadn’t had much improvements this month but looking back at the pics I can see it has come on a bit more, just hoping those temples can get a bit more density by next month but overall happy with how it’s going so far. The third pic I have tried to move my fringe around to see the temples but it’s pretty difficult now my hairs longer.

Yeah the first 3 months is an absolute pile of sh*t, but just try not to think about it, as hard as that is.

Looks excellent man. Your hairloss is almost exactly same as mine. How much did it cost if you don't mind me asking?

Cheers mate,
3125 euros for the surgery
300 euros (if I remember correctly) for 3 nights in a hotel
£200 for the flights to turkey and back

How much more growth generally would be expected between the 5th/6th month? As I feel like my temples are still pretty weak and am expecting the results to be maxed out by the 6th month.

Just had a haircut so thought I’d post an update now to give you guys an idea as how short you can take your back and sides after an fue, I got a skin fade which is pretty much as short as you can go and I would say it’s basically unnoticeable that Iv had a transplant.

Temples still aren’t as dense but I think that is just to be as expected for a first transplant and I am happy with how it looks now, next update at 6 months.
