    Default I donít think my result is going to be good

    Hi all.
    I had 2000 FUE grafts 12 days ago and Iím panicking my result will be poor.
    The grafts look too spaced out and I donít think Iíll have any sort of density.
    Thoughts welcomed!
    Thanks is advance.

    Iíd rather not say the doctor on this forum but if you private message me iím happy to disclose.
    I havenít got any pre op shave down photos of the area. But there area was very bald.
    Iím reading that 40 grafts per cm2 is ok, but Iím worried I can count between 10-15 grafts per cm2.
    Really worried that even after 18 months Iíll have gaps everywhere and few hairs to work with

    Congrats! And at 47 days, you're barely even beginning... I am very happy to see that you're feeling more optimistic about everything, and definitely update this thread as the growth continues.

    I think keeping your hair buzzed for the first couple of months makes the ugly duckling phase a lot more bearable. And giving you another reminder (because we can't have enough of them when waiting on results) to not expect seeing any sort of growth for at least another month or so. Hang tight, stay optimistic, and trust the process.

    I thought about buzzing down, but I have redness and cobblestone / pitting at six weeks. I think it looks better with the fuzz I have, but either way it looks bad

    I realized the shampoo I was using (Nizoral) was causing a lot of redness and drying out my scalp which delayed healing. Since I cut back on frequency (I was using it every other day or so) things are looking much better.

    Awesome! That's progress. A lot of the haircare journey is trial and error in terms of what works for our own specific scalps/bodies. I can't tell you how many products I've found out I'm allergic to over the years and have had to stop using and try something else. Hopefully this will settle the redness down enough that you can do a uniform buzz all over.
