5 months post transplant... how am I doing?


Dr Baldy

Hi Guys,
Had my hair done in Turkey on the 25th of October 2022 so I am exactly 5 months today (152 days) and I can't decide if I am making decent progress or not. So many Youtube videos of people who seem to be growing so much faster than me. I appreciate we all grow at different speeds and I don't really mind being a slow grower... just need a little reassurance that I am on the right path.
Had 4000 (apparently) grafts at Mcan health, have been on Finasteride (3MG a week) since 2 weeks post op... hair is still very thin in places and coverage is ok at best. My hair is very fine so I'm never going to have an afro but if I cant get a full coverage then it all seems a bit pointless to me. I'm 44 years old.
What do people think?
I took these photos today... will add pre opp photos too so you can see the difference. Phots taken under studio lights so quite a bright setup but not close to direct sunshine. Hair is still wet in the face on photo.

Your growth is looking good at 5 months. Have you seen more growth with you being just over 6 months post-op?
