All the best - it seems like you'll have a great result
Chad and Spex always seem to reply. Maybe their response emails were tagged as spam mail and were sent to a different folder?

Nothing in junk mail - I checked. But that's another discussion. Don't want to overtake Spanker's thread

Sean,

By today, I would say you are right (in the recipient zone). My hair is thick enough you can't tell in the back either. I do have some swelling in the eyes now, where if you know me, you could tell something is off.

The sad thing is that this is the best it will look for a while, and I know that I will be saying goodbye to my precious grafts before too long.

I have some grafts behind the shaved hair too and I am wondering if I will see some native shock there.

Hey Spanker, good job....things look very nice!!! I can tell a lot at this point and your result will look very refined and natural. I am happy for you, you have been quite concerned and apprehensive in making the right decision. I believe your thorough research and patience paid off. Dr Konior, possess all the necessary ingredients to create the highest quality results. You have also been a great source to many others on HTN, of sound insight, with your many posts. Regards, Matt

Great Post Op photos Spanker. You spanked hard this time. Day by day Im getting impressed with Dr. Konior. His work sometimes better than the top known doctors in the network. He is now among my top 3 FUT choices after Rahal and Hasson based on posted results. Hats Off to Dr. Konior.

Thanks Matt. It has been a long road. Saving money and doing the research I needed to. I too believe it will pay off in the end.

Today the swelling has gone down and I look pretty normal and I can just pull off a forward comb that I can go out without a had, so I would say that 5 days post op to basically normal is pretty dang good. I have no scabbing yet, but it may come. The incisions D.r K used were so small, that could be why the healing is going so well, Ready for another week from now to get rid of these stitches. Dreading loosing these babies that are in my head right now.

While there is no top doc, because everyone has different needs(size of procedure, fue v fut, etc), Dr. K. is with zero doubt a top tier doctor, and in my opinion, that is a very small club to be in. I am sure he appreciates the kudos.

Spanker, I got 3 questions:-

1) How many grafts you had and what is the target density after this session?
2) How much did the whole procedure cost you?
3) What is the standard rate per graft?

Thanks...

Hariri,

I ended up going with 2110 grafts. I actually have no idea what the target density was because I had native hair with it, I just know that it is densely packed. I just asked the doctor to plant so that I did not look "surgical" should I thin more, which eventually I am sure I will someday. Luckily I have had a very slow loss so it may be a while.

After all the research I did, I developed a complete trust for Dr. K's work and really did not concern myself with numbers like density, I just showed him my areas of concern and asked him to work his magic.

As for the price, I think that the best way to get that is get in touch with his office, Tom Ruiz is his office manager and deals with the pricing. Plus my wife may read this and then I'll have to buy here something really nice if I put a price tag on the work I have had done. Hope you understand
