Hi everyone,
I thought I'd share my hair transplant journey here with everyone. First of all, I am 24 years of age. I have been receding at the temples since I was about 16/17. My hair loss and my appearance has been bothering me since I was 16 and I have been bullied as a result of my hair loss. My confidence has been extremely low as a result.
When I was 20 I started taking Proscar (Finasteride). The Finasteride has definitely improved the conditioning of my hair and stopped my hair loss further. I have experienced zero side effects as a result of taking the Finasteride. However, I wanted to restore my hairline to the way it used to be, so I knew a hair transplant was the only option. After reading some brilliant reviews and seeing the forum created on here by Supersmooth about his hair transplant experience, I decided to book it with Hair Palace in Hungary.
On 2nd and 3rd of January 2018, I attended Hairpalace in Budapest and had a total of 5500 hairs implanted onto zone 1 (frontal hairline). It has been exactly 2 months since my hair transplant. When I arrived at the clinic on the morning of my surgery, I was greeted by my coordinator (who spoke perfect English), and we discussed the day ahead, I signed some forms, and I picked what lunch I wanted to be served later in the day. Before the surgery started, I had to take some tablets, 1 being a Xanax tablet which helps relax you if you are nervous. I was then greeted by my Doctor, Dr. Koreny Dóra. I must say Dr. Koreny Dóra and her team were brilliant. She was very nice and was always chatting with me throughout the surgery. She definitely made me feel at ease. She also spoke perfect English.

The morning of the surgery involved me laying face down whilst they harvest the hairs from the back of the head, then the afternoon involved placing the harvested hairs into the hairline. If i was to rate the pain level throughout the whole thing, I would give it a 2/10. I literally experienced very little pain or discomfort. The injections to numb your head sting a tiny bit at first, but you get used to them. This whole process was then repeated on day 2.
I am going to share some photos from 1 month before my surgery, from directly before my surgery, from directly after my surgery, 3 weeks after my surgery and now 2 months after my surgery. I will also share photo updates every 2 weeks.
Proceeding with this hair transplant has been the best decision I have ever made, and hopefully by sharing my experience, it will help others make the decision too.
I would appreciate any thoughts or comments or advice that may be helpful.
Thanks everyone ;)

These photos were taken 1 month before my hair transplant. You can clearly see the receding hairline. I was always able to cover it well by wearing by hair down over my forehead.
Also, please note that I do naturally have a high forehead.

These photos were taken directly before my hair transplant. Note my hairline and hair loss aren't very visible as it is covered by my hair.

These photos were taken 3 weeks post op. No shedding had occurred at this stage. I felt so confident at this stage because I had a hairline for the first time since I was 16 ;)

2 months post op (today).
So today is my 2 month mark. I will be providing frequent updates so you can all track my progress. I hope my progress and my hair loss journey will encourage others to go ahead and do it. There is no need to suffer anymore with hair loss and baldness. 
Any comments, feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated. I am also happy to answer any queries or questions.
Thank you ;)

Hey everyone. Currently 11 weeks post operation. I am approaching my 3rd month post-op and time is absolutely flying. From week 4 until week 9, my hair looked like absolute crap, probably worse than it did before the surgery. However, each day as my hair grows its slowly looking somewhat normal again. When I look in the mirror, I can see some hair growth in the newly implanted areas, although very minimal and thin. There seems to be more hair-growth on my right hand side, than the left-side, however I am hoping the real growth will kick-start over the next month or so.
Check out my 11 week post-op pics and feel free to leave any thoughts or comments ;)

Photos I took today after styling my hair. 11 and a half weeks post op. The outline of the new hairline is starting to be seen and finally some length is coming back to my hair. Exciting times ahead (I hope) ;)

Thanks for your feedback Daz, I appreciate it :)
I do have some regrets at this stage that I didn't slightly lower my hairline. However, if i did opt to have my hairline lowered, it probably would have looked very obvious and the result wouldn't look natural. I naturally have a high forehead, so by lowering my hairline further it probably would have gone against nature.

Hi Friend 

I lowered my hairline 1cm on the 3rd HT and nobody noticed it at all , I guess everyone just got used to seeing me with a hat then I had a HT and then nobody really said much , you made the best call leaving it as it is for now , your going to be a happy guy when this starts growing in all the best
