11 Months Post-Op "Closing In" Hey Everyone!Well, it's only been two weeks again since my last entry, so I don't have all THAT much more to report, but what I DO have is fairly exciting...!I am now at the 11-Month Mark, and I have to say that, as we "Close-In" on the One-Year-Anniversary of my procedure, I am ever-increasingly optimistic that the ultimate-result will be quite, quite good!Even just in the past two-weeks, I have noticed a slight, but definitely NOTICEABLE increase in health and density of the transplanted hairs, and my overall hair as a whole...While I have also returned to 5% minoxidil use, (in addition to my daily finesteride), and this could also certainly be a factor, I have spoken with my brother, who has NOT yet returned to the minoxidil yet, and he is seeing a similar slight, but noticeable increase, too...! This is the really some of the first NOTICEABLE increase in density in some time, and is so, so encouraging...As you know from my previous posts, my twin brother (Gemini1) and I both had our procedures done on the same day with Dr. Hasson, and because of incredibly tight scalp-laxity, weren't able to get the higher yield of grafts either one of us had hoped for with a mega-session.This, along with a couple of stubbornly troublesome "patchy" areas, have really been concerning us the past few months, and though we have remained optimistic, we were concerned that ultimately the final results might not be what we had hoped originally going into our procedures.While the lower-yields have certainly made us have to re-adjust our expectations, we have been trusting that Dr. H's expertise and artistry would provide us with the best results that we could possibly have hoped for with the numbers we had...The ever-increasing health/density (even from 10.5 months to 11 months!) that we are seeing is hopeful evidence that our ongoing Trust and Faith in Dr. Hasson was well, WELL-placed! If we continue to experience the maturation of density and fullness over the next 6 months that we have in the past two weeks, and the lighter and "patchier" areas continue to fill in as it seems they FINALLY may have begun to, we should be very happy campers indeed!We'll keep you posted...!
