Chris, what did you do to hide your transplant while you were recovering (and until you're buzzed areas grew out)?
I'm surprised that you felt the need to get another HT, as your hairline looked pretty good previous to this last operation. My current hairline is about where yours was AFTER you got shaved for your HT
I had sufficient hair to cover the work done after the operation when it was brushed forward but I later shaved it off anyway. I was wearing different hats for for a few months.
I always liked to have my hair up at the front as a kid and up to the present day but was unable to do that because even though my hair in the forelock was relatively strong, I was bald in the temples of my head and had about 10 hairs growing in each side from 2 small previous poor transplants in the Uk.
In hindsight, the first surgery I should have been turned away at my age but this industry is notorious for clinics who are willing take advantage and prey on the naive and vulnerable. It resulted in a bad result and when that happens, you go chasing to fix it, leading to additonal surgeries.
It was something I wanted to address and felt the time was right now and fortunately after growing older and wiser, I got it right 3rd time lucky
I am very happy with my hair now and I am not planning any more surgeries for a long time as long as the medication continues to work but time will tell as I get older.
I do realise that that my hairloss was minor but it was something I wanted to address and now I have, my self esteem is optimum and feel great about myself and enables me to enjoy my life to the fullest without bothering about hair
