These were taken by Dr Gabel on the morning of the hair transplant surgery.
He was excellent about giving me the exact hairline I wanted. We went back and forth 3 times, moving it by only a few mm each time! Each time we took pictures, reviewed them and started over. IMHO, this is one of the most important parts of the procedure and you have to get it right, coz its for life!

We're not touching the crown this time. Thats for hair transplant #2 in a few years. Hopefully I respond to my newly added propecia and rogaine regimen. My donor hair was pretty thick.
