The skin in those areas feels completely smooth, no hair at all. Is this due to shock loss? Will hair grow back? I am a little concerned.

Procedure 1

3 Months and 2 Weeks Hair is growing, but it seems growing very slowly. The hair is not framing my face yet, probably because my hair color is very light. I hope that, in month 5 when the hair has gotten longer, that the new hair will integrate fully with the other hair.

Month2 Here are some pictures of month 2. I am actually pretty happy, some hair just keeps growing and is already pretty long. New, very fine hair, hardly visible on the pictures is coming out. Looking forward to month 3

Procedure 1

15 Days Here some pictures, 15 days post op and one day after the threads were taken out.It seems that about 70% of the hairs jumped the ship. And of the remaining hairs, some got longer. Also, I see some small black spots and smaller hairs which looks like new hair maybe growing. But not sure if this is possible in such a short time.

Bald class: 3
Procedure 1

3 days Three days in I feel really comfortable. No pain or anything. The Trichophytic closure seems to be healing nice and there was very little (if any) bleeding. I am using some Antibiotic cream which I have to put on the suture twice a day.The recipient area seems good. Its still a little swollen, but I guess this is to be expected after the surgery. I am using ice on my forehead to keep the swelling in check.Otherwise I notice some bruises on the sides of my head. I guess these are the marks were the doctor was holding me when doing the incisions. Otherwise I would not know where these marks are coming from.The hairline seems somewhat irregular. But the doctor said that this gives it more a natural effect. I am now curious to see how the hair transplant looks after the swelling goes away. Hopefully soon.
