just a quick non photo'ed update... all scabs fell off at day 8 buzzed head to a one guard grew a beard feel great! upon close examination of the hairs, looks the same as the last procedure just this time it looks really densely packed which is what i wanted from the get go. the first procedure looked fine just not enough grafts were used imo giving a see through look. now with the appropriate amount of grafts and being a psuedo expert that i am from being on these forums so long i can confidently say that this is gonna be a sick result... i remember last time looking at the right side after my first ht and thinking it looked like less was implanted on that side... this time just looks like there are no gaps all hairs are close together and ill will update when i can

I'm glad Dr. Umar is standing by his work; waiting to see this result. I'm close by to him, but I"m not sure I agree with the nape hairs. I agree that they do go away was we get older. Any plans for the temples? They may need a touch up as well?

This is interesting. After the second procedure, from the photos you just posted, I can see a density issue. Obviously, native hair behind that spot it is even at a better density which elevates the appearance of that issue even more. So, the doctor didn't offer an explanation to this other than go to another doc? I just saw an amazing result and now read someone is bummed, in a matter of a day, I am really surprised and don't know what to make of all of this. With both your original procedure and your touch up, you have had around 2000 grafts correct? Did he mention the density he planted originally? For instance, I had 65cm2 on my hairline, 55cm2 right behind it, and 50cm2 on the sides. Hope you get what you want in the end though. Good luck.

He didn't go into hair per sq cm

Just sucks thinking about it 24/7 Always reminding you Everytime you look in the mirror

I felt going with umar was a super safe bet but I was wrong

Jb,

Did Dr. Umar indicate why he believed you should see a different doctor? This seems like an odd statement.

Dear Mr Breese,
Thank you for the update and accept my apologies for the impasse.
If you are still unhappy with your coverage, then it is logical to consider another pass. However, after a procedure with a touch up, it would be also ok to consult another FUE provider in moving forward.
Best regards

S. Umar, MD
