Thumbs up 2500 FUT Dr Rahal (Hairline Repair)

I had 2500 grafts from Dr. Rahal last July 26 to repair my bad 2000 grafts surgery from a previous Hair transplant clinic located in the Gulf (LADHAIR). My scar was 1cm wide, however Dr. Rahal tried to reduce it down to 0.7cm and created new scars at the sides which are pencil thin to extract more grafts. Im now 5 months post OP. I kept shaving my head weekly after surgery to look clean and to make my pictures clearer for the viewers.

Thanks Spex, Happy new year too. I already booked a scar revision surgery with FUE out the grafts from my bad old hairline to put into my side scars with Dr. Feriduni on July 2012. I appreciate your guiding and advices, I was about to do FUE into scar with Bisanga but seems like Scar revision worth trying first to save my precious grafts. Thanks again.

Taking the plunge, Its my duty and obligation to share my results with the network. I owe your network a lot for finding all the answers I needed about Hair transplant and finding the right doctor that will repair my case and revive my hopes. Without HTN, I wouldn't knew about Dr. Rahal or any other of the great recommended surgeons. It became part of my daily life routine browsing it. I wish you to enable a mobile version one day. Keep it up.

You have a great head of hair IMO! Get the scar revised and stay on meds and you will be good to go for a long time. Good luck! You deserve it!

hariri, The surgery with Dr. Rahal should have taken care of revising your old scar. Is that last picture your scar from the Rahal surgery? If so, then it would seem your scar has a tendency to stretch and I'm not sure yet another revision is going to do much. This can be good as it indicates you have excellent laxity, but bad of course if you intend to wear your hair short.

Its hard to tell what's going on with your growth with it being so short i'd start growing it out if i was you because knowing rahal you've probably got a afros worth by now lol.

I see the problem rahal had with your scar i think the reason he couldn't reduce it more is because it zig zags and he has to follow the pattern.

All the best mate grow well and if there's any justice in the world after what you've been through you'll get your dream head of hair!
