new2thissite's - Profile page 5 Months - Update

Posted :4/11/2009

I decided to take all pictures yesterday, which is exactly 5 months.  Pictures are taken outside, in car (with sunroof cover open),  and at work (new building with fluorescent lights).  All pictures were taken with the iPhone.  I also added two pictures taken about 2 weeks earlier taken with regular camera in more favorable lighting.  As many of you noted, lighting makes a difference and pictures can be misleading.  If I were to visit Dr. Bernstein today, I would share two concerns: First, in regard to the right side hair line.  The direction of hair is straight up with a lean to the center.  I part my hair on the left side to the right, so that may be a problem down the road.  The right hair line is also not as full as I hope it will be when all is said and done.  My barber (hair cut last Tuesday) seemed to think the main issue is the length of the hairline at this time.  He thinks once it grows out it should not be an issue.  I do have a scare on that side and that be impacting the result.  My second concern is that the left side is coming in slower.  The hairline is just beginning on left side, but is looking good.  I am also wondering if there an area where there were no graphs or will not grow.  I also have scar on that side, but not as pronounced as the other side. Of course, like most everyone at 5 months, I am anticipating/hoping for more. With all of this said, overall I am pleased with the progress over the past month and, of course, it is way too soon to judge final result.  Coincidently, yesterday, exactly 5 months from the hair transplant, I did get a very nice compliment on my hair from someone at work, which was nice since I struggle the most under those lights.
