Hi Slickers,

Unfortunately I don't have any pre-op photos in my possession at the moment. However, Dr Devroye did take some as part of his normal routine. Once he has past them on I'll stick them up.

Essentially though, the area he covered can be seen in the first, head-on pic. It was both recessed temples, and the same breadth and amount of incisions in the forelock (though not so clear due to my existing hair).

IGB thanks for the reply. You looks like you had serious loss in the temples, much more pronounced that I've ever seen in a woman before but that may in part be down to the recepient being shaved and the Doc working back into your hairline hence interested to see your pre op pics.

Anyhow, the work looks great and I've been impressed with what I've seen from Devroye's work. Good growing. Please keep updating

Ten days on from the surgery and this is what my scalp currently looks like. All the redness and swelling has gone. I have resumed using my regular shampoo and conditioner. The grafts feel completely part of me.
Just to make clear from my earlier photos. Dr Devroye did cut in slightly to my existing hair, something which was necessary to plant the grafts which will improve my density across the front top of my head - hopefully!
My stitches are removed in two days time.

Looks very clean Indigo. Just keep doing as Dr Devroye instructs post op. and be positive in thought and healthy in body. I like the pics. Thanks for posting.

I don't know whether it's an optical illusion or I'm kidding myself, but the grafts seem to have grown slightly. My camera doesn't show it so well, but they certainly seem longer than the day after surgery.

The stitches came out this morning. The nurse was very impressed. She said the work was incredibly fine, and that she could barely see any scar.

Having checked today, the grafts are definitely longer than when they went in. Is this a good sign?

I know that from the two week stage (where I am now) the new grafts should start to shed.

Thanks,

Indigo

I wouldnt read too much into it.

Try not to over analyse at this stage. It's really early days and you've got a long way to go before you start seeing the results take shape.

You've chosen a reputable doc and the work looks top notch. Just be patient

You are, of course, absolutely right Slicker. I'm going to try and stop checking every morning for a dramatic change. It's difficult though :-)

Patience is a virtue.

Week four, and as with most people, the shedding is well underway. None the less, my scalp feels good and has healed nicely.
