    Question Results at 8.5 months - is this a failure?

    These are the results at 8.5 months. Originally I had a thin patch 1/4 of the size of the bald patch I have now - and it wasn't as thin as the bald patch I have now. After the surgery I lost about 90% of the native hair in the transplanted region (the entire crown area), and it looks like the native hair lost to shock loss hasn't all returned leaving me with a thin area that is much larger than I originally had.



    Is it possible that this will eventually recover, or was this a giant failure?

    If you had more hair than you have now getting a hair transplant was a mistake. If there is a positive what you got now should stick around where the hair you had was likely on its way out.

    imo no, its far from a giant failure. I have an eagle eye, having assisted with my first transplant in 1990. I wouldnt immediately notice it, so its by no means a failure. Again, go back to your transplant doc. Truth be told, a medical professional needs to take a look. Most advice here is anecdotal. Not that its not good advice, but anecdotal is not my first choice as a clinician as my means of epistomology.

    You'll really need to post some before and afters (along with the number of grafts you got transplanted) if you want to measure your progress.

    I am a patient advocate for Dr. Parsa Mohebi in Los Angeles, CA. My opinions/comments are my own and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Dr. Mohebi and his staff.
