    Hi forum members.

    My background - in my 30s now butnhave been losing hair since 20 years old. I estimate I am a NW6 with pretty severe loss as you can see.

    Decided to take the plunge locally in Perth with Dr Martinick. She was knowledgeable, kind and has been doing it for 25 years. I have read some of the negative reports on forums but on my face to face consultation she seemed genuine and I am happy to have gone with her.

    Am creating this as a personal photo blog of sorts but thought I would share my journey with you as it progresses.

    Had a strip and asked my surgeon to go for max. She has transplanted around 4500 FUG from my donor strip And 20 body hairs from my back using FUE into the rear left crown to see the uptake. If it works I will fill the rear crown with FUE body hair transplants from my back.

    The procedure took around 10 hours and there was a team of about 5-6 on the day.

    It’s early days but curious as to other members thoughts.

    Regards
    M

    Other issues - my donor density is fairly low. My follicles are in groupings of 1 or 2 so an average 1.5 hairs per follicular Unit.

    Given the large area to cover I’ve set my expectations low with the aim to get a “thin but natural looking hairline”.

    I almost feel like you are in the Norwood 7 range. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

    Thanks! Surely you can’t have as profound hair loss as me? I’ve been using Toppik now for almost 8 years!

    @hanginginthewire it’s what I was told but im inclined to agree with you, I have a ridiculous amount of hair loss (probably a NW6.5 I reckon) - but I can’t bring myself to go bald yet - sadly my head shape does not suit the look at all....

    It's pretty close. That's why I'm interested in your journey. I will be having 5000 grafts done..I figure it can be any worst than it is..I'm a Norwood 6 with out a doubt

    Thought I would share a frontal hairline shot today.

    Used Liposomal ATP spray days 0-3. Now washing with Dettol hand wash and gentle running water. Some scabs are starting to come off. No additional bleeding so far though

    Seems like the follicles have survived... and the recipient hairs are showing some first signs of growth.

    I suppose if you have low expectations anything else is a bonus.

    Because of your lack of donor and extensive hairloss it's obviously going to be a bit sparse but it may look good shaved close.

    I hope you have a good result.
