Default My Surgery on 8-23 by Dr. Haber

2830 grafts. Not yet sure about the breakdown of 1 follicle, 2, 3, 4, etc. I will post before, just after surgery, and 3 days after right now, and continue with regular updates. Thanks everyone for this forum. It helped me a lot and I only hope my post will also help others.

Dr Haber was great, and all of his staff was great as well. They were funny and made the whole procedure a fun adventure. Pain afterward was negligable.

Woke up this morning and went to the bathroom. Was half asleep. Before I realized what i was doing I had scratched my head and appear to have torn out about 4 or 5 grafts

How long before they are solidenough that isnot possible? I am currently at 3.5 days post-op.

Don't touch your head for the first three of four days. Following that, only very gently. By day 10 grafts are firmly in place.

jallen,

Sorry I'm late to the party, but I just wanted to offer my congratulations in selecting an outstanding physician for your hair transplant procedure. Dr. Haber does excellent work.

I know you're concerned about losing a couple of grafts due to scratching your head. But 4 or 5 grafts (assuming they were dislodged) in the scheme of things shouldn't impact the result. I know I bumped or accidentally touched my scalp more harshly than I should have in at least 3 of my 4 procedures. So don't beat yourself up :-).

Now that you're a month out from surgery, we'd love to hear how you are healing and progressing.

I hope you'll keep us posted and present monthly photos so we can all follow along with your progress.

Best wishes in restoring your hair,

Bill

Not the best pictures... next time I will try to find someone who can help me take the pictures. Doing it on my own doesn't work very well...

Default 6.5 Months Later

Here is an update on my progress. 6.5 months after the surgery. For comparison purposes, I have included two of my original pics from before the surgery, with two pictures from yesterday, showing the results at 6.5 months.
