4 Months Post-Op……with photos!!

4 Months Post-Op……with photos!!

Hello All,

 

Hope you guys are all enjoying some beautiful Spring weather like we are in Nevada this weekend! It’s that time again…..another month in the books and I am finally 4 months out from my procedure. Man, does time just fly by!!!

I am happy to report that things are moving along fine here. Although there hasn’t been much new growth or density since my last post, you can compare my 4 month photos with the ones I took at 3 months, and see that I have definitely let my hair grow out long, and that I have stopped buzzing it with clippers. My scar is almost completely covered now, and I am going to continue to let it grow out a bit to see what the next couple of months have in store for me. Aside from a little shock loss still on the left side of my head in my donor area…..and a slower growing region on the right side of my recipient area……I feel my scalp is taking to the changes as well as can be expected for such a large procedure. I was hoping that I would have more density at this point, but everyone keeps assuring me that I am right on track to where I should be at this stage. My family definitely notices a HUGE difference in my hair from where I was before my transplant procedure. It’s hard to gauge when you look at yourself in the mirror every day, but looking back at my pre-op photos, it is definitely easy to see that my hair restoration has made a very big and positive difference in my looks! I feel I look a bit younger and generally have a bit more confidence .

I continue to take my daily regimens of vitamins, Rogaine and Fin!! I also bought a special shampoo (Revita) that was recommended to me, and have been shampooing with it 5 times/week as recommended by the manufacturer. I feel that it is actually helping with the characteristics of my hair and scalp….and that generally everything feels healthier up there!

As always, your input and questions are very welcomed. I look forward to seeing what the next few months hold for me. Above are my photos taken exactly 4 months post-op. I am now 4 months and almost 2 weeks as I write this post today….so will be taking 5 month photos in just a few more weeks. I will certainly share the results at that time to show you how I am progressing.

Hope everyone has a terrific weekend!

Best,

Mike

  1. Hi Mike! Thanks for the update and assortment of pictures! Your hair looks great so far 🙂

    Will be sure to look out for your future updates.

    Thanks again for sharing!

  2. Micah Roberts says

    Hi mike – I’m thinking of going under the knife – how long did you perform scalp exercises prior to the d day ?

    Cheers

    Micah

  3. Ethan Bailey says

    Hi Mike, great results, may I know how long have you been doing scalp exercises prior to surgery?

    Ethan

  4. Hi Micah! Good luck with your procedure. I wish I would have started sooner to give me a better shot at donor laxity, but I did my scalp laxity exercises for 20-30 minutes/day for 4-5 weeks. I have heard that people who continuously do the exercise for 2-3 months (or longer) prior to their procedure, experience the best results. Hope this helps!

  5. Hi Ethan-

    I did my scalp laxity exercises for a total of 20-30 minutes/day….every day…..starting about 5 weeks prior to my procedure. The longer you can start the exercises prior to your procedure (remaining consistent with them daily), will give you the most optimal results when your surgery date comes around. I hope this helps! Thanks for the nice comment!

    Mike

  6. I’m pretty blown away by how much of a difference there is between last month and this month. You’re already much better off than you were before the procedure. Prediction: my jaw will drop when you post your month 5 photos.

  7. Thanks for the update Mike! It is tough to judge when you see yourself everyday in the mirror but trust everyone who is telling you they notice, what a difference already!

  8. Impressive grafts grow after only 4 months!
    Are you using minoxidil and Propecia?

  9. Hey buddy! In answer to your question, I am using both Finasteride and Rogaine. The combination of the 2 seemed to give me very early growth. I also took multivitamins with biotin to help stimulate the formation of healthy hair and nails! Still take them and will continue to! 5 and 6 month updates coming soon as well! 🙂

  10. Gilljags15 says

    Nice to see hair are growing. Have you noticed any sexual side effects while using Finasteride? I stopped taking it after a month as i was experiencing some bad stuff.

  11. No sexual side effects here……all seems to be working well. Sorry that you had a problem with that; it’s safe to say that you’re not the only one who does!!

  12. Good day! This is my first comment here so I
    just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I
    genuinely enjoy reading your blog posts.
    Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same topics?
