I'm very pleased with how things are progressing. The hairline is thickening at the quickest rate (although the right side at a slower pace than the left) and the area behind my forelock is thickening at the slowest rate. But I know that this is a long game and so I am staying patient. There is a lot of time to go yet, but the early results are encouraging. I still get the occasional spot/pimple around the recipient area although none around the scar any more. The feelings of tightness in the donor area have gone entirely. I have also begun to get a few comments from friends, mostly along the lines of "have you lost some weight?" or "have you had a new haircut?" The pictures below were taken in daylight (shade) without flash although the last one in direct sunlight. I was wearing a small amount of gel.

Top of head in direct sunlight. I have included this to give an honest picture of how my scalp still catches the sun if given half a chance!
The developing hairline.
Another picture of the developing hairline - I like this one.
Top of head in daylight (shade) - still quite a gap behind the forelock.
