This is a really interesting read Edsarn. It's curious how alike our stories are. I too have really good and dense donor, i certainly agree that thick donor makes the recipient area look worse than it really is. I keep my hair at 0 around the sides and a 3.5mm on top. If i grow my hair any longer, it looks obvious I have had work. I'm hopeful my forthcoming transplant will make be my last 1 for at least 10 years. I will get Olli at Appear natural in Kent to do some more smp work, to hide the scarring from the donor area. I look forward to hearing more about your journey mate
Thanks @Rocketman man. With my hair, it has never looked great when it is quite short - up to about 2-3 cm on top, but it gets a bit longer it seems to look better. I will update my 3 month pics shortly.
It can be very subjective when designing a new hairline, some may like the more pointed temple whereas others, like @Edsarn would like it to be slightly rounded off to create an angle to frame the face more. Assuming it always looks natural and technically possible then it really comes down to how the individual feels.
