Looking good Fred, exciting months ahead and scary as well with the shedding as bullinut pointed out, hope it goes well and please share the process with us as things progress.

Thanks for your encouragements :).

Well I'm a bit sad of course, now that almost all the transplanted hairs have shed, but I'm used to walking around with a shaved head so it doesn't affect my quality of life.

It's just that, you saw how great it looks for such a short time, then you have to go back to cueball mode. I'm just glad I don't have any obvious telltale sign (visible scarring, redness...) while I'm forced to shave my head with no guard.

In your experience guys, how many months after the FUE can you see the very first hairs sprouting? If you take into account that I apply minoxidil twice a day.

Hi Fred


Keep positive that's the main thing , I think everyone grows differently for myself I was using minoxidil twice a day same as you and I saw hairs breaking through around the 12 week mark after 14 weeks it just got better and better , we will be coming in together so I am looking forward to that have a great day

Not to mention Fellaini, who I don't think will be beating down the door of the transplant clinics anytime soon!

3 month is usually the earliest that patients start seeing growth, this is considered an early grower as it can take up to 6 months for growth to come through.
Hopefully you get a head start using the meds and see the growth early.

Not much FutureFue, I'm shaving it down now because there's almost no hair up there.

My family pretends they can see some hair growing, and it may be true thanks to the minoxidil, but I'm not even 2 months after the FUE so I think it's way too early for some growth.

Other than that, there are pimples appearing there and there on my scalp from time to time, I read on the Hasson & Wong website that it is normal and can actually indicate that hairs are trying to breach the skin, causing a pimple to develop.

I think I will post new pictures in about 2 months, when I will (hopefully) have something to show :).

Still early days Fred, maybe in a month or so you may see some new hairs sprouting.

Hey dude hows things....out of curiosity how long after the op did you start using the minoxidil? did it cause any irritation? How you hanging on on the old transplant emotional rollercoaster......not long now till things slowly start to happen.
Take care;)

I think I see some changes, but very faint though, I haven't even hit the 3 months mark.

I started using minoxidil exactly two weeks after the FUE, in fact I just resumed my use since I was using it before the HT. No irritation to report.

Of course at this point you tell yourself nothing might happen, but I'm holding on. Thanks for the encouragement :).

3 months update

Well I didn't expect to see so many hairs at this point, I'm supposed to have 10% of the final result I'll get in 9 months and I must say I'm already pretty happy with my hair buzzed. I went back to my minoxidil use 2 weeks after the procedure and I think it has given me a head start. It's so cool to have my frame reappearing. The way things are evolving now, it's like having reverse male pattern baldness. Other than that the donor seems clean and untouched to me.

The pictures





And here are the other pictures with a higher resolution:

Fred that is not the best picture but that shadow of hair really looks good.

Do you plan on keeping your head shaved that close because I think that would really work well. It's like what those who opt for SMP are shooting for but this is real hair without any of the drawbacks.

I honestly find that picture this early impressive. Same goes for the donor, it looks absolutely excellent and this is a very good case for others to see. With small punches it becomes very difficult to see white dotting.
