Default Dr. Vories - 2000 Graft FUE Crown Session

Hi, my name is Zac and while I'm waiting (very patiently) for my hair to grow I figured I'd take the time to share my results.

Thanks to all who have shared their results and stories in the past, as they've helped me a great deal in preparing for the process.

I just turned 40 years old in July, about a month after my surgery with Dr. Vories in South Carolina. It took me a few years to decide to have the transplant, but the only thing really holding me back was the cost. I felt Dr. Vories was fairly priced in comparison to most I'd researched, and his results seemed to be on par with the best I'd seen, if not better.

I made an appointment for a 2000 graft session to fill in my crown for June of 2017. My experience at his clinic was great. Everyone there made me feel comfortable. They fed me lunch and we watched Caddyshack (my choice..they have hundreds on Apple TV) for the portion of the surgery where I was upright.

For the extraction I laid on my stomach with my head facing right for 500, then left for 500 more, then with my head straight down in a massage style pillow for the final 1000. We ended up with 2004 grafts extracted. The only painful part was the numbing, which is a decent needle prick over and over in the area he's working.

I sat upright (but leaning back a bit) for the rest of the surgery. Again, the pain was fairly mild and only during the numbing portion. He started to implant a few a little soon on one spot, and I simply told him I could feel it so he numbed me up a little more and on we went.

So far I feel good about the decision and the process. I have pics I'll attach below from before, 1 day, 3 days, 2 weeks, 1 month, and 2 months. The 3 month mark will come in mid-September, at which point I'll continue to load new pics monthly.

Thanks again to all who operate this website and all who have contributed to the forum.

3 Month...

... nothing much to report. I was starting to feel a little defeated with nothing to see, so I went back and read more on the forum. I was quickly reminded that there shouldn't be much to look at at the 3 month mark. Hopefully, the next 2-3 months start to show some growth.

Yeah don't worry. In my experience 3 months is a bulls*** time where nothing happens and you feel absolutely terrible because it's now past the point where you're hopeful. You should however to start to see SOMETHING at four months I think. Sometimes its just some bulls*** hairs that don't do anything, for others it's an undense preview of what's to come. But at 3 months, it's an absolute wasteland. The amount of times I looked in the mirror and said, 'Just f***ing grow.' at three months is remarkable.
