Default HT 25th June Dr Radha

Hi there
After much research on this website and others I decided to undergo HT with Dr Radha. I had emailed pictures to a few surgeons within SE Asia and all said I was progressing towards Norwood 5 and suggested I have 2500 to 3000 grafts.
As has already been stated by many others, Dr Radha is a wonderful and very professional person. She did not make unrealistic promises or claims and explained each step of the procedure clearly and answered all my questions and concerns.
I explained that I did not wish to look like I was 20 again but rather fill in the area I have left. She thought this to be a sensible idea and a better use of the grafts allowing for a thicker coverage.
I have nothing new to add to the experience of the procedure that has not already be said except to confirm that at all times I felt safe and well cared for. At no time did I experience any extra discomfort. I chose the local vegetarian lunch which was good, I stayed at Budhill Park hotel which is perfectly fine. Internet could be better there but everything else was absolutely fine. I have paid more to stay in worse.

Final transplant count as follows;
1 hair - 662
2 hair - 2140
3 hair - 420

I also bought Finasteride 1mg and have started taking them but will probably only take it every other day. See how that goes and then maybe increase the dosage.

So in conclusion; as has been stated many times before, Dr Radha is a truly wonderful surgeon and I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone.
I will try to update pictures weekly so that you can see how the procedure went.

(have just edited post, had wrong transplant count, now correct)

Happy growing

It is now 2 weeks post HT, will get wife to take pics and upload later today.
As yet none of the transplanted hair has shed. In fact it is growing longer. Is this usual? Will it grow a bit and then shed? I realise that everyones experience is slightly different, just thought that I would see signs of shedding by now.
Mind you, I'm not complaining.

I don't think I had shed a single hair at two weeks. I started shedding at around four weeks. I remember that I was kinda hoping I wouldn't shed at all at that point, but now I don't really care, 'cause I know it will all grow back in a few months. I'm currently just shy of 7 weeks.

Here are the pictures 2 weeks later.
Trying to get the lighting to match isn't so easy.

Scabs are gone and no shedding as yet. Blue nylon stitches removed at day 5. Now have the other stitches starting to fall out. Wife keeps cutting and removing pieces of stitches from back of my head. All seems to be going well.

Looks almost similar to my case. nice progress. Keep going on.

It took 1 month for me to start shedding. I have completed 6 weeks till now , but still I had 70% of transplanted hair has not fallen off.

Now I am at week 8. Am trying to remember to take a picture each week. The idea will be to stitch all the pictures together after 52 weeks and make one of those time-lapse type movies.

Hi Ahmed9500
I am based in Singapore so cant meet up sorry. Obviously I am at 8 weeks and going through the doldrums phase. Lots of the grafts have shed though not all. It appears that some grafts have decided not to shed but to start and continue growing. Obviously need to wait until around month 10 I think before I can say definitively what the results are. However based on my limited experiences I would most certainly recommend Dr Radha.
