Talking FUT 3650 grafts Dr Radha 27/09/12 (pics, details...french patient)

Well,
As promised i 'm updating my experience.
I'm back to France so it's easier to update pics and write on my keyboard.

I can make it long but i will try to keep it short. (i know you're only interested by pics )
If you are on a hurry just go to my blog => http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com...asp?WebID=2561

I was on hollidays in the north of india and Nepal before HT.
I went to Vizag on the 25th of september. I met Dr Radha on the 26th for one hour. We planned together the surgery.
Dr radha and her team are very nice and professional.
I had a long day at the clinic (9 am 8 pm)
I had to go back to the clinic on the 28th for first checking and shampoo.
Suture removal on the 2nd of october and last post op explanations.

Actually i was scared about doing my HT in India. Price was one my motivation.
I was supposed to do it in april http://www.hairrestorationnetwork.co...-dr-radha.html but because of work issues i had to postpone it http://www.hairrestorationnetwork.co...ts-coming.html.

She said i was almost a norwood 7. But i think i more on my way to be a norwood 6 right now.

I was hopping 4000 grafts at least but i had only 3650 grafts done. Scalp laxity was good but my density was only 70-75 hairs (per cm square i suppose)

The count : I don't remmenber exactly so it may be not exactly right
single: 1250
double : 2350
triple : 50 (bad news...)

I insisted to do the tamples and to have a good density on the front and not to have a too high hairline. That's why she could not go as far as planned before.

So the bad news : poor density (70-75), very few triple hairs. 3650 grafts (was expecting more than 4000)

The good news : Dr radha and her team were great, no pain, good scar, good work, and First HT done. No more finasteride ( i want to stop it !)


So now i'm fine and i shaved my hairs. I have scabs and i don't really know if i have to remove it or not. (so any advice would be a lot appr?ciated).

I'm not an expert in FUT, i'm french (sorry for my mistakes) and this was my first HT. I choosed dr Radha before recommandation on this forum and i'm very happy with my choice till now.

But to be honest, the only thing that matters to me is the result.. So now i have to be patient. I cannot recommend at a 100% Dr Radha until 8 months.
But definitely, i really appreciated my HT experience so far and i'm looking forward to see my hairs growing.

Fortune hotel in Vizag is expensive but is great by the way !

i've updated my blog for all the pics. Just have a look at my signature.

I will post the today's pics !!!

Dr radha did'nt send me the pics she took before and after the surgery. I will post it as soon i will have it.

Any coments would be a lot appreciated.

PS : i'm already thinking of my next FHT in a year if results are great with Dr Radha ( crown and add density)
And for those considering a FHT with Dr Radha rani do not hesitate to ask any questions you'd like to...

Hey oncled,

Congratulations on your successful surgery! The coverage seems good and will make a whole lot of difference when everything sprouts up

You mentioned that you won't be continuing with fin now. Is it something that the doc suggested or is it a personal call? What is Dr. Radha's take on oral medication after a HT?

Happy growing!

Tks

Actually i decided bymyself to stop finasteride (propecia). I told her i wanted to stop it. I took it during 8 months. I didn't notice a big change and i don't want to take the risk to have its side effects. I'm only 28 and this could affect me for the rest of my life... no way !!!

So now i take Androanagen. Dr radha prescribes me that dietary supplement and she told me that it has no side effect reported.

But i'm not an expert, so if anyone could help me to understand exactly what it is, that would be great. (pic attached)

Things look very good, I to was wondering why you would stop the use of fin? In my unprofessional opinion I would say you may be able to get some benefit from using it and assist in the potential shock loss if you will experience any. How soon where your sutures removed? What was the cost of the procedure (if you don't mind me asking)? Do you have more donor available for another HT if you ever want to consider one? And do you know the size of the strip that the doctor excised? Thanks and happy growing.

Yes , i'm pretty sure that Propecia could help. But i really want to stop it. I don't want to take that risk at my age.

The first sutures were removed the fifth day after the HT. And the others are absorable suture ( will take about 3 weeks after HT to be absorbed if i'm right)

She charges 50 indian roupies per grafts which is very cheap compared to the price in western countries (europe, US ...). I don't know if it's still the same amount.

I don't mind telling you how much i paid but as i did contact Dr Radha last year and she was not recommended by this forum and very few pics were available at this time, i had a small discount. ( We fixed the price in january...)

It was also besause it was quite a big amount of grafts. Let just say it's between 2000 and 2600 € with 10 months supply of androanagen.

You cannot find cheaper for the class of work she does. But actually i need to wait another ten months to really tell you if it worth it...or not.

I guess we can remove about 6000 grafts with FUT (and maybe more). So yes i will have the opportunity to do it again in 10 month, when scalp laxity will be restored. I think my scalp laxity is good and that should'nt be the problem. I don't know the size exactly of the strip but i know it was quite big. Unfortunately, poor density did'nt help me to achieve the amount that i was planning.

Hope this help !

Oncled do you think your Scalp Laxity Exercises helped you to get more grafts???

To be honest, since it was my first HT, i didn't do scalp laxity exercises.
But 3650 is not a bad number at all...i only hoped to have 4000 or more...
i think the piece of skin she took was large enough to achieve 4000 grafts with a better density.

Unfortunately, i didn't have good density (let alone triple or quads ... )

But if i can achieve the same amount of grafts for my second hair transplant (next year ??) with scalp exercises, i would be very happy !!!
