Hi guys, I'll give you a little feedback and a few pictures about my recent hair transplant. I hope it will be useful to some of you.
I'm 24 years old and I'm from Brussels. I started losing my hair quite aggressively at 17 in the form of DPA (diffuse patterned alopecia) which means no receding hair line and the hair thinning equally in the NW5 area. I started using minoxidil at 20 and I've been a very good responder for 1,5 year. Dermmatch (a concealer) also helped me a lot to make it seem like I had a full head of hair (easy when you don't have a receding hairline). Unfortunately, after that, the hair loss resumed quickly and I reached a NW5 at the age of 24. Hair loss stroke me hard and caused a lot of psychological problems for me. I had to go through major depression, anxiety, panic attacks and even psychosis. All of that because of the horror of losing a part of myself at such a young age.
First, a before/right after the procedure to give an idea on where I was and where I (hopefully) will be.
I'll post pictures every few months.
8 days post-op
Here's an update of my evolution 8 days after my FUE. I managed to remove all the crust and I must say that for now I'm thrilled. Too bad I will have to go through a shed in a few days and wait months to see the results. My donor (that I shaved again today) shows one or two red spots, other than that, it looks untouched to me. Do you think this is looking good, I'm cautious about being overly optimistic and then not having the regrowth that I expect in a few months.
3 months update
Well I didn't expect to see so many hairs at this point, I'm supposed to have 10% of the final result I'll get in 9 months and I must say I'm already pretty happy with my hair buzzed. I went back to my minoxidil use 2 weeks after the procedure and I think it has given me a head start. It's so cool to have my frame reappearing. The way things are evolving now, it's like having reverse male pattern baldness. Other than that the donor seems clean and untouched to me.
6 months update
Still improving. I think it's not bad since it's supposed to be only 40-50% of the final result.
