    So we are in week 10. I went through heavy heavy shedding but I think I've finally begun to turn the corner past the ugly duckling phase. There is definitely new growth..it doesnt look great but its encouraging to see the hair come back. The crown was hit hardest by the shed and I dont see the new growth there but I do feel it. All in all i'd say im on track and its coming along well.

    Default I think you get what you pay for...

    I too opted to go with a lesser Known hair transplant team, here in Denver Colorado, rather than with Dr. Harris due to cost. In retrospect I would never do it again. I hope your results turn out better than mine, because I have been left with a fairly large FUT scar, along with a lot of scarring where the hairs were placed due to what I call "pock Marks" ie the holes where the hairs were placed seem too big and in bright light look wrong. I am a physician myself, an Internist, and I honestly had no idea just how big of a surgery FUT is. A lot of places try to minimize it as a "procedure" but the reality is that it is a surgery on your scalp that if not done by someone with immense experience, and an understanding of the subtleties of the art and science behind it you can be left scarred and worse off than you began. Im in the process of deciding about getting my second, much larger transplant through the hair sciences center in Denver, which I should have done in the first place, or having someone remove my FUT scar, and possibly correct the scarring at the recipient site so I can just go back to shaving my head. Going the cheap route was the worst decision of my life. I hope you have better results than I did, but if I could go back I would have gladly paid the 5 dollars per graft through HSC, rather than the 2$ grafts I got at the "other place".....

    Ok we are past the lesser known better known BS now I'm just sharing my progress. Your dr must have sucked because I have no scarring in the transplanted area whatsoever..even my FUT scar after only 10 weeks takes some looking to find. Recently my mother who's a medical professional as well could barely find the scar without really digging around. Right now the only way you can tell I had a transplant I'd the little row of hairs forming my new hairline..and even then it's not obvious.

    So 3 months and a week in. Things are really starting to accelerate quickly now. My hair looks different every week...especially my crown which has taken longer to see results. I've also included a picture of my scar which is healing really nicely...I can cut the sides at low as number 2 without the scar showing.

    Sunrise, it is hard to see in the pics. Are you happy with your results so far? If so, the price you paid was a score.

    Good luck.

    Look at pics 1 and 4 on my last post compare those to my first pics on the first post..the change is pretty unreal..the last post isn't a good representation of the crown area since my hair was wet but trust me even my crown looks really good now..of course it's not 100% yet but at 5 months and it already looks like that ..I'm very happy so far....should I take more pics to give u a better look...any particular angle?
