Well here I am at one week beyond month 5.  These pictures were taken at various angles.  The picture taken directly from the front and at eye level looks the best but gives an illusion of density that is not evident from other angles.  I can say at this stage I have considerably more hair than when I started but if things were to stay "as is" I still would not consider the outcome to have cosmetically met my expectations. I feel like I have decent coverage but still would like more density. I don't expect to have dense growth and I do expect that my scalp will remain somewhat visible, however, I hope to have a "thicker" look in the coming months than I do now.

That said, each month has definitely been a significant improvement over the preceding month and I remain hopeful that I will continue to gain a fuller look over the next several months, at least. 

Other things I should mention...  Very few pimples now (I assume that means fewer new hairs are breaking through) and the tenderness at the top and back of my head are all but gone.  The back of my head is still fairly numb in places.  The donor scar is virtually invisible.

All in all I feel I've made the right decision in both getting a transplant and with the doctor I chose to perform it.  All who know me have had only positive comments.
