Hello All,

After reading through posts in this forum, I believe that this is the best place to be for any sort of discussion related to hair loss and restoration.

I am 27 year old male and I started noticing hair loss from the age of 22. On 23 May, 2011, I went for 3900 grafts frontal hair transplant with FUE technique. Attached are my pics before and after transplant(pics 1 & 2 before transplant and rest 2.5 months after). I think I am in the worst phase of post hair transplant procedure with all the transplanted hair along with some pre-existing hair being shed. I am really concerned about the future of the procedure and want to know if it is going in the right direction. Since, I am living far away(different country) from my hair transplant doctor I cannot visit him often. Looking at the picture can someone please throw some light on how my transplant is progressing.

Btw, I was using Rogain for 3 years before the surgery and started it back from 1 month post surgery.

Thanks for all the help. you guys are doing a great job!!!

Thank you

Hey, dbaner2. Based on these photos, everything looks to be progressing normally. I wouldn't worry. You should start seeing new hair sprouting from the grafts in another couple of weeks. It takes 2 - 3 months before any new growth starts, so you are right in the middle of that period. The Rogaine isn't going to hurt anything. Just be patient. By 6 months you should definitely see something. BTW, you didn't say, but where did you have the procedure done? It's very important, especially with the FUE method, that you have an experienced doctor doing the procedure.

Thanks for your reply MiamiMark. While your reply was helpful I want to know few things specifically:

1. Looking at the picture could you spot any shockloss that might have occurred? I feel I currently have much less hair than I was having before.

2. I use toppik and dermmatch even on my transplanted area. Hope that is fine.

3. Is there any other indicator which shows that the transplant is progressing normally and that the grafts are about to sprout hair?

Btw, I got my procedure done from Dr Arvind Poswal, India. Any other opinion will be greatly appreciated.
