Was Dr Lorenzo insistent on a more mature hairline or was he open to it being changed to your liking?
He made a point of talking about matching a hairline to my age. I think he would've changed his mind if I had pushed. However I didn't want anything too radical so I wouldn't look terribly different once everything was said and done. Having said that, I'd like to have a lower center peak than I do right now -- perhaps half-an-inch.

How many hairs total? The grafts were 4,301 which had a variety of individual hairs within the follicle ranging from 1-4. I'm not sure how many were applied to each area though.

Thanks! I did get a bit elaborate at times. When I was researching a year ago I appreciated people who had too many details rather than ones that felt like there was something missing. It wasn't an easy decision, especially with going overseas. I'm glad I dug deep to find a lot of edge cases to make my trip pretty damn easy when all was said and done.

Did Lorenzo make the extractions by himself with FUE Implanter Pen?

His Technicians did the extractions. He personally implanted them in two sessions per day with his special implanter pens. I was surprised he didn't just punch out at 6pm like I thought most Doctors did. Both nights I was there he worked on me for several hours for the second session and didn't leave until well after 9-11pm at night.

Not all of his Technicians do the extraction. Only certain ones do, while others load the Implanters when he's tapping them in the head.

Congrats on your procedure. You definitely chose a great surgeon.

Excellent detailed write-up. But all that talk of chicken sandwiches has made me very hungry

Small update... I can see more sprouting up on my right front side. Now I need to wait for the left side to catch up.

Dr. Lorenzo sent me the photos he took during the visit. I can post those if there's an interest.

I would be interested in seeing them Redcut.....I started seeing some hair sprouting by month 3 like fine baby hair but it was significant by month 5.....and different areas definitely came in at different rates .....make sure to take pics for yourself around the same day every month to compare....when I got to month 5 I had pretty good growth and started thinking this is all I'm probably gonna get but when I compared it to my 6 month pics there was a huge difference.....I had pretty steady increases through about 9 months.....I think after that the hair seemed to still be maturing as far as losing some of it's curl, etc....then at 11 moths I went back for my second transplant and had my head shaved again.
