hey marco - no worries man… that’s what these forums are all about… I’m not online as much as I used to be (married with family now) but I do try to post monthly updates… I do hear people say a lot of nice things about my results… over the years, I think I just have learned to take some decent shots and that probably is what gets the most compliments… my first couple HT pictures looked a lot like what the average pictures look like. In regards to the numerous surgeries when I first started in 2000 there weren’t the megasessions of today - my road has been a little slow. I’m pretty much a perfectionist and have done lots of tweaking over the past couple surgeries… ie: I didn’t get on any meds until before my 3rd HT and felt I was loosing hair at the same time I was adding it… after the first 3 surgeries I thought my hair was too thin all over and didn’t look quite right if it wasn’t styled straight back… I got so tired of wearing my hair that way day in and day out… 4th surgery filled in a lot and added density but I thought left my airline too v shaped and I wanted to be able to wear my hair in younger type styles thus ht #5. I still think it could use a tweak here and there but I’m pretty happy. my temples were gone when I was 16 years old or so (see attachment - so I’m pretty thrilled to have styleable hair again) and my most recent child has a widows peak like I used to have (and very similiar to my hairline now - people comment all the time, “she has your hairline”) so I even am now questioning changing the shape any futher - a little thicker may be nice but I still may have a little more growth and it still may mature some with time.
pre-2nd HT - still losing hair:
