As expected there is a noticeable aesthetic difference. You still have a a few more months of potential growth left and it won't be up until 18 months before your implanted hairs return back to their natural state. I think you will be able to walk into any room and carry of the look of not being bald. Could you have done with another 1000 or so grafts to cover that area, Yes, but there is always the option of a second surgery to top up your density if that bothers you further down the line. The most important thing is that the grafts that were implanted seem to have grown out and ultimately you are happy with your progress.
Thanks for all your comments. I agree with everything said as well. With the amount of grafts I was getting I was realistic enough to want the following: my hair at the front to be less thin.. , my bald crown to be at best thin.. . I'm enjoying the boost to my appearance and self-esteem. I'm much less self conscious now.
Good luck everyone, no matter what stage you are at, in your fight against hair loss
Well I'm almost at a year so I attended DHI on Monday and have some photos for your perusal. Feel free to give your comments.. I'm very happy and the process has met my expectations. Maybe further down the line I'll look to finish what I started - not anytime soon though. Thanks for reading my story and hope I've maybe helped a few people on here.
For the number of grafts you got, I`d say it is a good realistic result. Your hairline is now visible with a thinner density behind. You had quite a large balding area, so as expected, these grafts have been placed where they were most effective.
Good to hear you are happy. Keep us updated if you go for a second procedure.
