8 Months

8 Months

Sorry I didn’t post 7 months pictures. I feel things have gotten a little stagnant as I might have experienced a shed of some transplanted hairs in the last month, but overall things still look really well. I had a visit with Dr. Rahal in Los Angeles this past weekend and he said it can be typical for some of the hairs to experience a shed due to the cycle of the hair. He thinks that due to where I am at 8 months post op that I am 75-80% complete with maturation, and that I am at 40% density in regards to 50% density in which the restoration goal was set for. My scar has stretched a little on the sides but looks good in the back so I will probably have to keep my hair to a level 3 or 4 if I buzz on the sides. I am trying not judge the results until I get a year under my belt but I hope I can achieve some more density through time. No matter what it is a dramatic difference from where I started and I am happy with the results so far. It is easy to get hair greedy and you have to keep realistic expectations. If anyone has experienced a shed at 7 months post op please contact me. It wasn’t major but I felt like things thinned out a little for me.

  1. Thanks for the update 🙂
    Your hair is looking good! I agree, big improvement when compared with your pre-transplant pictures.
    Looking forward to your one year post!!

  2. Wow! Your hair line looks great and the density is amazing. Thanks for the update!

  3. You look terrific. I’ve been tracking your progress for the last few months….and it’s an amazing transformation. Can’t notice any of the shedding you’re noticing. I have my procedure with Dr. Rahal 2 weeks from this Friday….and can’t wait to look half as good as you! Best wishes for the amazing results you’re going to see at the one-year mark!!!
