I'm not really having sides anymore Grasshupfer. 1mg EOD.
1. Not much, I think I could squeeze out 2500 grafts though.
2. Normal whorl, but hairs around the whorl are quite weak.
3. I have very thin hair, that's a bad characteristic to have. But I had ok density at the back.
Regarding the latter statement, thank you. You are absolutely right too. It's all about stealing time.
What does this mean? Are you losing hair in the crown area or not? Truth be told, crown looks entirely normal.
Ive just realised this thread started from 2015, my bad! Have you any pics you could show us now of your results swoop?
My crown is fine at the moment. But if I wouldn't be on something it would go downhill yeah.
Still same mate. Out of bed look when I got wasted night before:
Also note that I dropped minoxidil in the past while i'm a moderate to good minoxidil responder. If my hair starts going downhill I'll add dat secret weapon kirkland to get hair quality increase. For now no need.
you didnt shed too much when dropping minoxidil ?
Damn bruh that looks so thick and natural I would never know that you had a transplant
You're hair looks absolutely amazing mate ... gives me some serious inspiration about the results that can be achieved through a hair transplant!
thankyou for your responses and feedback,
I did. It was pretty brutal.
Fcking zit under hairline lol. Dat sebum flow.
Your in the ideal state, and position. Hair is entirely covered with good density from one go around.
Any plans for the future in regards to hair transplants? (reinforcing the entire scalp, temple angle closure/temple points, crown work?)
First transplant gave you a lot of ground to cover. Most people need a second surgery for density... such as myself. (skinny roots, thin hair)
Shook thanks. I swoop my hair to one side and layer those hairs on each other though. I can't really adopt every hairstyle because in harsher light conditions it will just show. Still I won't complain, very happy at the moment.
I do have plans in the future regarding hair transplant. I think my estimation was that I have like 2500 grafts left so I'll use that to reinforce my mid and crown area when it weakens. And honestly I know that it's going to happen eventually, it's just a matter of time. And if that goes to shit, I don't know man? Shall I rape my donor even more and add some SMP in donor? Or just add some SMP in the mix on the top of my hair and keep it buzzed? Or maybe become a toppik prisoner? I don't know to be honest, I hope to buy as much time as possible really.
How about you? How is your last hair transplant? Are you content now?
I should be. it's a rocky slope though, going through all these emotions again after shaving the head.
Will it grow back, why am I so diffuse, shock loss around the hair transplant.
Moving forward though, I am happy with my decision to completely reinforce the entire top.

TBH that does look quite thin! I've seen your previously posted hairstyle pics and it amazes me what a incredible job you're doing to make it look full if your top really is that thin before this transplant. Might be the lighting making it look worse than it is though.
I did think that's why your layering your hair like that. As I've said before your transplant is excellent but it's always difficult to get it like pre male pattern baldness density. Also the incisions are never in the exact perfect places like it was before even with a skilled surgeon. This all makes the hair appear a little see through in harsher lighting in most cases.
Good plans. You have options. I would just keep using that donor up.
Did you see much improvements from month 7 onwards? It's the stage I am at. I am more or less content but wondering what lies ahead.
Could be lighting but generally speaking anyone with diffuse male pattern baldness will look bald shaved down. Growing it out allows masking and he appears fullhead more or less. The transplant itself also looks less dense buzzed down usually.
Shook I had shock loss but it all grew back and actually getting better in the crown. I guess being on finasteride helps and you have that advantage of being on it for a while.
@shookwun do you have any pics of your hair buzzed pre surgery?
same for @Swoop too. do you have any pics of a buzz cut a year or so after your surgery?
your crown is still thick? I more and more realize the importance of keeping a great densitiy on the mid scalp and crown .
Hairline and temple can be repair with transplant , but you have to keep a great mid scalp and crown density to have perfect result .
come on guys, help me out
@Swoop and @shookwun all i want is pic of your guys hair buzz down/shaved to the bone after youve had a transplant to see what its like.
