11 month update as I haven't really seen much progress since month 5-6. I tried to take the most non flattering photos possible.
Overall pretty happy with the result and the doctor choice, however I didn't expect the type of hair/direction of hair growth to play such a big role in the final result. I was hoping for more density honestly after seeing other peoples result with 3000 grafts, this just goes to show how many variables you have to consider regardless of donor quality, bolding progression, doctor choice, etc. I will probably get a second transplant of 1500-2000 grafts to get more density in the near future. In the pictures below you can see how fine/straight hair looks under different angles/lightning.
That's a great result for 3k and fine hair, for someone with thick hair 3k grafts is like using 6k and you shouldn't compare or expect that. A lot of guys are going crazy over Dr Zarev, a very talented surgeon but all his results (from his country) are on people with thick black hair. Anyway you just need some more density but your hairline is mature and nice already. Bearing in mind your crown and general thinness, I would say 2k grafts all over for some extra blending would be nice but not sure if it's worth it if your donor is hit hard or hairs taken out of the safe zone. It was already patchy and thin before surgery.
