So, here we are, now almost ten months since my HT with Dr Feller. How am I feeling? The overwhelming sense that I have is that I did the right thing and that I am delighted with where I have got so far. There will probably be some further maturing and thickening to go, and that is all for the good. But the improvement from where I was before the operation is dramatic. I no longer wince at pictures of myself and I feel content when I am styling my hair. I have had an enormous range of positive comments, along the lines of looking young, fit, well etc - and sometimes just "whoa, cool hair". But the change has been so gradual that no-one has flat out asked me whether I have had a hair transplant. It helps of course that the new hairline is maturely positioned.Until recently I was wearing my hair much longer, and there is no doubt that this helps me style it in a way that enhances the illusion of density. I had not appreciated before the HT (as much as I do now) how important a part styling plays in maintaining that illusion, although it's fairly obvious really. In this next set of pictures, I have again had my hair cut fairly short, partly so that you viewers/readers can compare like with like. I am not wearing any product. I have (as usual) aimed to take them in direct and quite harsh sunlight - although viewers/readers should bear in mind that much of my time is spent in lower lit conditions that enhance the illusion of density. These were taken in the evening sunlight. I won't pretend that I am still hoping that the front right side catches up in density terms with the front left side. That said, I am not going to let something short of perfection detract me from feeling very happy indeed with my result so far.
This picture shows the scar still faintly visible. This is with a number 4 clip.

The denser left hand side.
This is the right hand side, closer up. I am able to style it so as to enhance the illusion of density. Instead, in this picture (and in order to keep the pictures as honest as possible), I have messed it up and taken the picture in direct sunlight.
