8 Month Update
Your 8 month update pictures looks great, even at a real short length. Are you planning on keeping it that short length or grow it out more?
Hey Bill, second procedure is scheduled for July 14. I will continue to grow it out until then so that Dr. Erdogan can have the best possible assessment of how it looks when longer. So that will be approximately 4 months of letting it grow after I shaved it to a #1 guard.
This should help best assess the density of the transplanted area, the "thin area" which now exists in between the thick donor area and the transplanted area on each side of the head, and the bald vertex area. The "thin area" in between the thick donor area and the transplanted area on each side of the head and the bald crown are the main areas I want addressed with my remaining donors, as well as any touch ups on any spots that didn't grow in thick enough from the first procedure, (if there are even any, and only if I have enough donor. That would just be a bonus).
As far as keeping my hair long, we will see how it goes after operation number 2. Thin/transplanted hair ALWAYS has the illusion of appearing thicker when kept shorter, it looks SO GOOD right now even just one months after shaving to a #1, so I will likely continue to keep it short and have no problem doing so. However, if in a year I am able to grow it out and have it still look good AND EVEN all over my head, then I will of course try different styles. Thanks!

Shaved Head Looks Good
It's amazing how thick your hair looks even when your hair is shaved down - although with such a thick mane, you might want to grow it out a little. I know you said you're going back for more and will likely keep it shaved until then. It looks good either way.
When will you be having your second hair transplant procedure?
Hey Bill, thanks for the nice comments! It's definitely changed my life.
Second procedure is scheduled for July 14, along with my brother on the same day for his first (he has more hair to start with than I). We'll be sure to post pics. Your forum is invaluable, that you so much. I can't imagine how many people it has helped make their decision to change their appearance and self-confidence.
I will try to grow it out after the vertex is filled in...I just hate the Manu Ginobili look so probably gonna keep it short until that happens.

Great documentation! The work looks excellent. Good luck!
Thank you very much, I am very happy with it and hope for continued growth! Next procedure set for July 14.

Dr. Erdogan has always impressed me and this community. And your case is no different. For 6 months, your hair looks great. How are you feeling about your result so far? Are you excited?
I look forward to your next update.
Dr. Erdogan and his team spare no expense and take great pride in each and every graft extraction, placement and incision. I am very happy with the results so far and will keep my blog updated. Procedure 2 is set for July 14!
