Its vital that guys considering a HT understand that you are not going to get the full result until 16-18 months at least…
I think everyone needs to be made aware that even after a whole year there is still a great deal more in store - more growth, thickening and maturing.
Trust me, I truly know how tough the waiting game is having had 2 procedures myself. Looking constantly in the mirror, inspecting it every opportunity. Comparing your results to others you see online.
The important thing to remember is everyone grows at different rates. If you have chosen a top doctor and followed the post op instructions to the best of your ability, then the growth will come.
I see lots of patients who panic on these forums just a few months out from their procedure. Never mind 3 and 4 months… which for some reason seems to be the bench mark for the day you wake up and the final result is in.
At months 3, 4 and 5 you have just begun growing!
Months 8-16 are just as important in terms of growth, maturing, thickening as the first 8 months. The success of your HT can only be determined after 18 months especially if you are a slow grower.
Patience is the toughest part of the HT procedure but one of the most important ones. If you are not ready to wait a full year for your result, then you are not ready for a procedure.
