hey topcat looks like you had a promising session there, I hope you get a great result,
I think I would be tempted to buzz all of that loose hair until the rest starts growing in though, scars and all

Thanks mintyfresh.

I will post a picture of my hair using a concealer in the next few days. Then you can see why I didn't shave it all off.

Here is a picture at a little over 4 weeks with a concealer. I work in customer service a few days a week and can't wear a hat.

For those of you who are not familiar with my case. This was an exploratory surgery for me. My goals were to test both body and beard hair along with a small amount of available scalp hair. It was a total of 828 fue a relatively small session but I wanted to be extremely cautious.

I have zero visible scarring to both the body and face and the growth has been very good at the 6 month mark. It has made quite a difference for me when using a concealer. I hope to do several more sessions of both chest and beard hair, then finish up with any available scalp donor. I am very realistic in what can be achieved but I'm sure it will make quite a difference.

Since I do spend time outdoors I would notice any white dotting as my skin color changes. I am happy to say I have not experienced this and everything looks normal. I will take some up close shots of the chest and beard donor in September when my skin color has changed the most.

I know it might not look like much to others but this is a giant step forward for me. This was somewhat of an exploratory surgery for me. I needed to see if the body and beard hair were going to grow and that I did not experience any visible scarring. At this point I would have to say it's a 100% success. I can now move forward with additional procedures with full confidence.

BHR and Dr. Bisanga are the most ethical and experienced in this business and I am glad I waited 10 years to start this repair and I am also happy that I passed on all the previous doctors in which I had consultations.

Just that little bit of hair that is growing now makes all the difference while using a concealer. I know that I can expect better days ahead.

Prothik, although I am thinking about trying topcoverage. Sinice the sprayer on Prothik has recenlty been changed it goes on a little heavier then before. The key seems to be able to spray it on the scalp very lightly to almost get that dotting effect similar to a tattoo.

I wash it out in the morning and I need to apply it everyday. BasicallyI just spray the scalp while the hair is still wet, let me hair air dry and then style. It has almost the same effect as the tattooing that we have seen on the forums. A light spraying of the scalp gives a dotting effect and greatly reduces the contrast between the hair and scalp. The more hair you have the better the effect.

But unlike tattooing it is reversible and doesn't turn blue or fade.

Concealers are messy and do become tiresome to always have to apply but unfortuantely at this point I do not have a choice. I am hoping continued improvement with BHR and additional beard and chest hair I can greatly reduce it's use.

Having only just a little over 800 fue, with half of them being chest and beard hair the results so far are fantastic.

I was out in the Sun all sumer and I have absolutely zero white dotting.

Thank you Farrel for posting my udate.
