Well hopefully it's turns out ok for you. They did say it will be 75% of what it should/could be. Thanks for the info. All the best.

Checking Google images I don't believe it to be Folliculitis (at least if it is it's certainly not as severe as some images on there).
When they zoomed in with the camera I could see some yellowish colour around one of the spots. I'm doing my best not to rub/scratch it which isn't always the easiest thing to not do and applying Fucibet cream morning and night.
Hopefully it will clear up soon if I keep my hands away from it, I am generally prone to spots so not overly concerned.

As long as it does not seem serious and not too bothersome.

3 month update ;)
Good news is that the spots/infection/soreness at the back of my head has cleared up, do get the odd pimple or spot here and there now but nothing like before.
My hairline appears a lot better now although I could be doing with a haircut! :whatever:Crown area and thickness on top still come across as being a bit sparse however can see the hairs growing in the photo, hopefully if they thicken up a bit I may have better coverage. So far relatively happy, here's hoping for further improvement over the coming weeks and months.

And a photo from the donor area, everything has recovered and looking pretty normal. Probably got enough hair there for another FUE in the future.. (just need the money now :whatever:)

Hi Mate
Great pictures hang in there, it will start to bloom soon for sure, you're past the first few months now, the crown can take a bit longer to take off for some. Just looking at your pictures there is always the option of SMP the thickening effect in the crown while you're saving your monies, anyway I wish you all the best and will be watching out for your updates
Cheers

Good to hear everything cleared up, those odd pimples can be sore. Your hair looks good for 3 months, most don't see decent growth that early. Crowns do take longer to grow for some reason. Very early days for you, try to chill as the growth will come.
Thanks for the update.

Do you have any 9 month update pictures? I €™m also thinking about using DHI Glasgow?

Apologies for the delay, been too tied up with anything any everything really!I imagine this must be over 9 month now perhaps closer to 10.. I am mostly happy with the results, the front is significantly better than it was initially although clearly there's still work to do on top.
Unforgiving photos below..As a side note I have now booked myself in for another Mega Session in a couple of months time, planning to have the hairline brought down slightly and more crown coverage so this is all work in progress ;)

Photo number 3 from the top (again 9-10 month post op)..May still see some more thickening here although not expecting a miracle.
Altogether I'm happy with the results so far, hopefully things will only improve with op no.2 :::C

Found another photo for comparison (pre-op) to show just how different my fringe is now!
Another side note.. I made the mistake of jumping onto Finasteride every other day (half a pill) and noticed I was losing more hair on top, the moment I changed this back to every day the hair loss stopped. Perhaps I will see some more results before my next transplant, will definitely be posting more shots before and after then too ;)

From the back/top..Can clearly see the line where the hair was transplanted on the crown from here (bit of a gap unfortunately but still an improvement on before).
