Default 1551 grafts with Luis nader !

First off I have a another thread with before pictures under the title "blonde ht"

This journey started off rocky. I got stuck at the airport 5hr delay in the plane not at the airport so a flight that should of been 3 hrs lasted 8 hrs stuck in a tight plane seat fml. I missed my connecting flight so now it's 2am and I'm suppose to meet with Dr Nader in 6 hours(8am). The good news is I'm now in the correct state(Texas) just not in the correct city(Houston) I need to be in McAllen Texas. I was in contact Dr Nader the whole time and he had said I have to options which I will tell you next but he said regardless of what I decide it would still get done and for me not to worry. I had 2 options rent a car and just make it there exactly at 8am (5hr drive) which nader said wasn't a bad drive but didn't recommend it if I was tired or take the next flight at 850am and get to mcallen at 1000am for my driver to pick me up and go directly to the doctor. Of course I was tired so I stayed the hotel in Houston supplied by the airline for my inconvenience that only gave me about 3-4 hrs of sleep.

That was the only thing that was different about my ht journey that I wanted to explain express lol.

The rest of the time from getting picked up my Mr Santos to meeting Dr Nader it was great. I was so nervous going out to Mexico for a ht (which I felt save the whole time) it was mostly about getting a hair transplant, it could be very life changing in a good or bad way just depends on who you go to and if you find a Doctor that actually cares and know what it feels like to be in your shoes.

I believe I did just that and even tho I'm just 1 day post op I know that I went to the right doctor already based on my experience.

Here are some pics.

Wow, what an ordeal getting to your final destination. Sounds like your surgeon was very supportive. Pictures look good. You have a lot to look forward to with that new hairline. How many grafts were transplanted?
