It's been 4 months since the procedure. I tried to experiment with shorter hairstyles to see how the scarring is looking back there. The scarring was visible in some patches but overall I definitely think it's improved. I'm now keeping my hair at about 1 inch in the back so I'm nowhere near a buzz cut but I'm hoping that more growth is to come which help me to experiment some more with lower cuts in the months ahead. In 2 more months I will reach my 6 month mark. Can't believe it.

I'm at 6 months from the procedure. The scars on my head are filling up nicely - better than I thought or hoped. I wanted to get an appt with the doctor's office to get a follow-up at the 6 month mark but they said they usually do that at the one year mark to a get a full assessment since there might be more grafts that will grow between 6 months to the 1 year mark. I'm really happy/blessed by what I see so far and hope that more growth continues in the months ahead.

My hair is consistently shorter & more manageable than before since the scars are more concealed with hair in them now. Before I would cut my hair and let it grow out. I thought I would have to keep a longer hair style, but that is not the case anymore. The longer hairstyle was much more difficult to manage & looked less than pleasing to the eyes in both the front, side, and back view. I am quite pleased to move in the direction with styles that is more fitting for me.

In 6 months time, I will hopefully have that follow-up & they can take pictures. They also have my before pictures so I hope to post a before/after comparisons. Right now, my hair is not short enough to see what's going on. I don't know if I'll plan on shaving my head for the pics - unless of course I get another procedure.

Happy growth & healing to you all.
