hello everybody.i was lurking for some time here and since i had my hair transplant i registered to share with you my case.i am 37 and i had problem in the front area.i finally decided to do the hair transplant 15 days ago.The procedure took about a bit less than 5 hours.so right now i am 15 days after the operation.the operation was for 1200 grafts using the strip method FUG.I would be grateful if somebody with experience,or maybe a specialist,a Doctor who is reading my thread would tell his opinion of the work that has been done.Actually i have some questions:
1.is it 1200 grafts there indeed?why i think that its less?:confused:
2.although i was told that this new hair will drop,at the right side there are many grafts that keep growing if you notice the later photos.will some grafts keep grow from now on?
I will post updated photos in the future so people who are interested in this will see all the stages.:)

It looks like you are healing well. It is really hard to see how many grafts are in the area. However, 1200 grafts into the area in the photos is not excessive. In other words they could be placed in that space easily. In fact, some might argue that you should have done more while you were in there. Some hairs will start growing from the day surgery. Some will grow a bit and then have a delayed fallout. Overall, I think it looks good and you should try not to think about it to much and let a few months go by before getting too excited. Good luck.
