I 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.

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.

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.

It's now a little over a month since my transplant.

My hair has never looked worse lol. I lost all or nearly all native hairs in the recipient region, I hope that this is shock loss and that they come back in a few months. As for the transplanted hairs, I'm curious why they have not all fallen out. Some of them are still there, still ~1 cm long or whatever, looking like stragglers. Is that normal?

The itch is now reduced by ~95%. I do have a little bit of sensitivity. I might start micro needling in a few weeks.

These are the 60-day photos. My recipient area never went completely bald, so I'm not sure if there's any progress, but some of the hairs there seem to be longer than 1 mm. I think that this is a good sign, and that these are the first hairs to re-grow. That peach fuzz has approximately zero aesthetic value, but it may be a good sign of things to come. I no longer have any itch

Looks promising Afro. Your new hair line will look fantastic when all the hair grows in. New hair should start to grow within a 4 to 6 weeks or so.

Three months update, robust regrowth has begun.

As you can tell, these photos were taken at the hair salon.

At 3 months you can't really expect or deduce anything, but the topdown looks largely promising. 3.5-5 months is typically peak sprouting period.
