Default Hi..

The videos i'm told are not on-line yet so it shouldn't be me but i'll drop them an email and ask as i know they were filming me.

One of the company owners lives in the UK and has salons near me, so that's how i was introduced. They were extremely helpful, put me in touch with the surgeon and gave me all the information and patient references i needed.

They also accompanied me out there as i agreed to let them film me etc which helped my nerves!

I can PM you all the details if you need them

Thanks

Rob

Hey Rob,

I am 100% it is you. You know after the surgery, did they put like a white bandage around your head only the back part? like the area's where they done the FUE sides and back. It was kind of stuck on?

I remember in the video in the post-op day 1, you and some other guy had a surgery were sharing a coffee or drink together outside? I am so sure it was you.

Yeah I am 23 and honestly I want to fix my hairline, I feel its time v money. Id rather waste money then waste time!!!

Hi MoeyK

They might well have put some videos up, but no-one has mentioned it to me via email.

Send me an email with a link to them as I'd be interested to see them :-)

Regarding the price, it's about average for out there but the quality is excellent and the travel/ trip was excellent too. I think in the UK you'd be looking at about ?7-?8k though, not ?10k

One thing I would say is that at 23yrs old I'd say you were too young to have a transplant as you are most likely going to continue to loose some. Get a consultation from a good surgeon to assess your hair loss to date and potential future loss patterns.

Thanks

Rob

Default 1 month anniversary...

Well, the first month has already passed and i am seeing a lot of changes in my hair and scalp. Thankfully, everything is going according to plan, or even ahead of plan, so i am very pleased with progress so far.

I am aware that i am now entering the ‘ugly duckling’ phase where i shall remain for the next month or two until the follicles awaken from their rest phase and start sprouting new hairs.

In terms of shedding, again, i have been fortunate in that i still have lots of transplanted hairs remaining… and growing! Even with combing and rubbing, they do not want to dislodge and some are almost an inch long. I would say that i have approximately 30-40% of hairs remaining.

So, the important part, the pictures. As with all my pictures, i have tried to catch everything in the worst light, so you have an honest view of the donor and recipient areas, both natural light and bright flash.

Any comments/feedback are welcome.

Thanks

Rob

Default No feedback?

Hi all,

I presume no feedback or comments means that everyone thinks things look normal and on track?

I've since had my hair trimmed to even it all out and it looks even better, the donor area is now undetectable, so i am very happy.

Suppose it's just a long waiting game now until the transplanted follicles wake up and start producing new hair!

Rob

Default Early growth??

Hi All,

Ok, week 5 and the shock loss seems to have completely stopped now and has got no worse since week 3.

I have however, noticed an increase in very short/stubbly hairs in the recipient area where there were no hairs prior to my transplant (so can't be native hairs re-growing).

Obviously, there are still hundreds under the skin hiding away in dormant stage for a month or 2, but i didn't expect growth this quickly???

Am i one of the lucky few to have some early growth? or is there another explanation for this? The other guy who was there at the same time as me has already got pimples on his head at the 5 week mark

Tried to take a pic for you to see but it's on my iphone at work today. It's a pic of my left side frontal region.

Any advice more than welcome.

Thanks

Rob

looks like some good early growth. Your after pics looked good and I see no reason to be concerned.

Default Thanks Spanker..

I'm not concerned, more intrigued really as i didn't expect any growth yet at all. and thanks for the note on the after pictures, i was impressed with the work, it all seemed very clean.

There are some transplanted hairs in the recipient areas that never shed and are a good 2cm long now, maybe 100-200 of these, but i seem to have another few hundred of these stubbly ones too.

Very happy if it is early growth, seems my post HT procedure is working like a treat.

It'll be interesting to see if/how quickly these little fellas grow over the next few weeks. As always, i'll keep a careful eye on progress and keep you updated.

Many thanks

Rob

Default 2nd month anniversary

Hi all,

Well, my calendar reminded me that it's my month 2 anniversary today!

I'm well and truly in the 'ugly duckling' phase now, with transplanted hairs at different lengths and my native hair no longer really short, or long enough for any real style. Oh well, short term pain, long term gain!

I'm really pleased with progress so far, the donor area is un-noticeable (even under a bright flash) and i am seeing some good early growth ahead of schedule

Still slightly pink but it's almost died down in the recipient area.

So, without further delay, here are a few pics. Apologies, it's hard to capture them well on an iphone!

Any questions just ask and i appreciate any comments/feedback

Rob
