Default Hair Transplant with Dr Madhu:::2700 FUT

hi Want to share my HT experience with Dr. Madhu.

had my transplant on the 22nd of August. I have been loosing hair for the last 14 years.
finally decided would go for a transplant and on this forums recommendation , decided to go with Dr. Madhu.

I had planned for 4000+ grafts, and had been doing Scalp exercise for the last two months..
however Dr. Madhu found the scalp not very lax, and could manage 2700 units.

It was a good experience and im sharing some images here as well.
will try my best to keep my progress posted and updated here for everyone..

its been 14 days now, and i have felt good looking at my self in the mirror.
this is my first step and will surely go for another procedure in the future.

logansays,

Welcome and congratulations! Dr. Madhu's work looks very refined as expected. Sorry to hear that he was unable to harvest the number of grafts you had hoped for. This will give you a good start and certainly have a positive impact on your appearance.

Best of luck and please return to keep us updated on your progress.

Logansays, congratulations.

@nextsri Thanks!
the length is from ear to ear ( almost) ..if ur asking me abt the width..no its of no concern cos its healed very well, and I cant actually see the scar, my wife has to search for the scar, for it to be noticeable to her..so to answer ur question, its of absolutely no concern.

Regarding getting the crown area done..I hoped for 4000 grafts..but the doc could only manage 2700..lucking there were lot of twos and three but rathr than having it spread all over with poor density,the doctor suggested and I agreed to have the front area done to frame my face..and ofcourse i still have enough donor and will surely tackle the crown in the future..

Hi Logansays

I'm planning a future transplant with Dr. Madhu. I would like to know I have a large area to cover and I wonder if they will do both the front and crown area in the first session. Is spreading the available grafts equally over the whole scalp (front, mid and crown) possible in one session with Dr. Madhu? Thanks

Jim (JkR)

HI Jim,
Im sure given that if you have the required donor available, it would be possible for them.
Im not really in any position to either guide or suggest anything! Lots of experienced and informed member here on this forum might be able to answer ur qestions effectively !

i do think they should have the capability to do such a procedure! however the area of coverage wud defenitely depend on ur donor hair. Meeting with a doctor personally would be the best way to go about it.
