Hey NEG. I don't cut my hair short at the back. It's about a #6 guard. I took the bottom section of my donor region down to a #1 once and asked the hairdresser if he could see any dots, to which he replied 'oh yes'. Jotronic also took a pic of my dots on his iphone and they seemed huge (awesome guy by the way). It's the recipient site that's the bigger problem. The very front of my hairline has white smears all over, so i can't wear my hair up at the front. Not that i currently have the option, as i had f#ck all growth from my FUE procedure, but 'if' i ever have another transplant and get good growth, i'm wondering if i'll ever be able to wear my hair up. Yes, it's really that bad. There's definitely no way i could wear it up in summer when i'm slightly tanned, that's for sure.
So after one FUE transplant where i had shit growth, i can't wear my hair up at the front hairline and can't cut my hair short in the donor region. They don't mention this stuff to you at the pre-op consultation.
Luckily, i was still a strong NW2 before my HT and i'm still an NW2 now, so i'll be ok for another few years. Think i'll opt for a hairpiece when i lose more hair. Can't go through another ordeal like that again. Lost faith in hair transplants to be honest.
Sorry for the winging !!
Hope your repair is going well bro.
