Kinda think it would have been ideal looking at the crown to do extend beyond that 2500 graft limit you gave, a think a few extra hundred in the crown would have been warranted to get that perfect. You're pretty lucky that your temple points remained strong and the width of the overall balding area is small compared to many, the frontal third should work out well.Afro_Vacancy wrote: ↑3 weeks agoI must have had a lot of shock loss, as my hair, in the recipient area, now looks worse than it ever has. That and I took a 14-day break from minoxidil, 3 days before the surgery and 11 days after, approximately, they actually asked for more for some reason.
I guess that this gives me something to look forward to ... My hair should drastically improve over the next 3 to 12 months.
Edit: These are some photos taken pre and post surgery by the surgeon's staff.
Edited to add #2: I want to post more photos but this is the maximum per post. I'll post more in the next post, which can't happen until somebody replies.

I'd probably give it 5 months before it looks *better* though, beginnings of growth at 3-4 months look just as bad, potentially even more noticeable as hairs are all at different lengths.
