Welcome to 4 months. Yes, it's good to be past the ugly duckling phase. It's good to know that growth is on the way. But it's also nerve-wrecking not knowing how it's all going to turn out in the end. I think the most significant growth periods from my first procedure were between months 4 and 8. In fact, I didn't really see any growth until month 4 from my first procedure. So the hairs are starting to come in now, which is nice. I have been growing out my hair longer. As Dr. Paul told me not to use dermmatch on the recipient site for the first six months, I've started to sprinkle on toppik and nanogen on top. I do still use some dermmatch to cover the scar.
I do see more growth on my right temple. My left temple seems to be slower than the rest, which was the case the first time around and it never really caught up. Hopefully, it'll even itself out during the growth phase. There are so many bumps from my first procedure that I'd like to hide.
Thankfully, I can now see no more traces of the punch-outs along my hairline. If you don't remember, I had a few 2-3 hair grafts in the hairline from my first procedure that made it look very harsh. So Dr. Paul punched them out and replaced them. Those wound sites where still pretty noticeable at about 6 weeks, so it's nice they are fading away.
My donor for the most part is in good shape. There has been some stretching behind my right ear. It's covered now with my hair. But it probably stretched further than I or SMG would have liked. The rest of my donor scar line is looking pretty good, very thin though still red.
I did get a pretty huge zit the other week. I didn't really touch it and it's slowly going away. Good sign!
