Thanks, do you think the grafts should €™ve been packed tighter for better density?? Looking at my hair now it €™s looking ok but still a bit thin, hopefully that €™ll improve over time. Here €™s a recent pic

The density should improve over the coming months. Just got to be patient and wait it out now.

I agree, the wait is a killer but it's a necessary evil i'm afraid when it comes to Ht's.
Thanks for taking the time to update your thread we all appreciate it dude;)

Thanks for posting man appreciate it. Yeah I agree it is a killer, but I €™m hoping it will be worth it too! Quite a few hair have reached a good length albeit a bit thin but I can feel small hairs that haven €™t sprouted yet. Due my 6 monthly check anytime soon so hopefully all is well.
Cheers

Hi guys
I have been able to get my graft breakdown. I was advised (and quoted for) 1620 grafts would be needed. Based on the breakdown they €™ve only managed to implant 1266 grafts. I have been told that this was due to difficult extraction? Would this be accurate?
Any comments/feedback would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Hi Friend
Well the growth is coming through for sure and your hair will get better it just takes times the hairs might be thin now but they will get more defined as times goes on , try not to stress out to much keep as positive as you can . As for the grafts they have extracted am sure the Doctor will give you a good reason for that anyway they should have told you as the price would have changed , wishing you all the best

Your hairline is looking good. That's a reasonable amount of grafts used which should look very good in 12 months.

Guys bit of advice if you don`t mind. When I feel around the transplant area I can feel tiny hairs, are these not meant to have grown out by now? I`ve felt them for a while and they don`t seem to have grown much?
Another thing, here`s a pic (not great I admit, apologies) of my hairline at present, it`s been around 7-8 months. Does it look unnatural? I`m not sure if it is or if it's just me having seen all these other poor end results that have made me paranoid lol

It looks natural to me but a higher quality picture is required to see it in more detail.
The small hairs could be new growth really slow or stalled hairs. If it is stalled, get a pair of tweezers and pull it out. It should just slide out without any force.

Hi guys
So it`s around 10 months post op now, my hair looks ok but I`m not sure if I`m expecting too much but from the front, it`s a little thin and gappy I`ve tried to take the new quality pic I can (iPhone camera)
Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks

It looks fine to me...maybe a little thin in places but not overly thin dude..if you feel it looks too thin then you have options (although I'm only viewing on my phone so I could be wrong)I don't think your in a bad situation as its not like you need a repair which is good.....either a touch of concealer or a small top up to add density and you will be fine dude. If your concerned then you could have a consult with one of the clinics here and ask their advice buddy.
Let us know what happens if you do please

Thanks for your reply mate, reassuring.

I still can feel quite a few stalled (I think they call it) which I can t really pluck out as it's hard to see them amongst all the hair but I can feel them. Would these grow/fall out themselves? I only ask as it's now 10 months so I would've thought I`m at the sort of end result now?

Hi Mate
Wait it out till the full 12 months and then see what you think then do a plan of action , your result as others have said is not repair but might just need a few touch ups to meet your expectations , their is always SMP as well .
Thanks for sharing with us stay positive
Take care

Hi guys
Thought I d post another update for anybody following my progress (plenty of you I hope haha!)
So this is now coming up to exactly 10 months (next week)
Looks good but if anything a little thin at the front hairline (right side on the pic, my left) I still have quite a few stalled hairs which I can feel but can t pull out as they`re too deep into the hair to actually see. As most of you have found with your HTs, its appearance varies a lot depending on the sort of lighting you view it under. Nobody apart from my family knows I've had an HT and nobody has asked/noticed anything (I don t think) which is great, so more of an indication it doesn`t look too bad at all.
Not sure how much more growth/increase in density I'll see over the next 2 months, time will tell!
