Hi Aj,

I was wondering - why did you decide to only fully shave your head after you had the procedure done? Wouldn't it have been easier to conceal had you not shaved your head (seeing as you didn't shave it for the procedure itself)?

I agree with AJ, scar is a pain in the ass especially if the person is perfectionist. There will be a day when the patient cant be longer able to restore all of his hair in a certain age with a certain level of NW. What you see on the net is only one year post op but you wont imagine how would you look like when the final balding process ends. When AJ decided to do FUE he has a point which is to shave his head to look normal and good rather than looking weird with head of hair and balding spots because of being hesistant to show the scar to public and start looking weird. A person should always think how would he look like 10 years ahead especially if he isnt ready to take the finasteride.

Alix, i agree with you too, Motorized FUE tool in my opinion is very commercial, big risk of damaging the graft, many top clinic are using it to save time, dollars and efforts. All top FUE surgeon are using manual extraction devices like Lorenzo, Bisanga and Feriduni. Dr. Feriduni was using motorized tool and he found its not good enough so he went back to manual to achieve better results and patient satisfaction. I would never have a FUE session with motorized tool at all whether its motorized rotating punch or powered SAFE system..etc. Unfortunately most of North American docs are using them these days to meet the demand of the HT market, motorized FUE tools offer the ability to remove 500 – 700 grafts per hour, whereas manual punch grafts allow surgeons to remove around 200 – 300 grafts per hour. Its about production and time saving but not about quality.

"With using motorized FUE tool, HT doctors can't feel what's going on as well and may end up with more transections. Also that the motorized drill may generate heat which could be bad for the grafts" "Some types of work require slow and meticulous attention to detail like an artist with a small paint brush. Sure it takes longer but I don’t think you can compare it to the painter with a spray gun". :-)

aj,

Congratulations on your procedure with Dr. Bisanga, and best of luck with it.

I've always been impressed with Dr. Bisanga's FUE extraction patterns. He really spreads them out well. I notice in your case that he only extracted from the rear and right side of your head, leaving the entire left side untouched. Can you explain why he chose to extract in this manner?

Thanks,

z

Hi z I think it was because it was such a small procedure he felt it wise to not touch the left side Im happy really as it means that can be used if I need a further procedure in future years.maybe I wouldn't have this shockloss though if the extraction had been spread but it's a case of short term misery for long term results and better donor manegment

Hi Aj29,

Is the reason Bisanga left your hair long during the op to aid the 'design process'?

How much time did you take off work and has anyone noticed you had a HT?

I think your result will be great as you chose well.

Hi Matt

Thats right he insisted on leaving it long to aid with the placement he said it was so he could see the direction of the hairs.
I took a month of work , my problem was that I disguised my receding hairline really well so preop that it was a shock to people seeing me with my recession exposed, I told everyone that I went on a stag night and as a practical joke someone put hair removal cream on my head, that's how I've explained the redness and the shockloss

Hey guys sorry for the delay in posting I've been really busy with work lately.well the shockloss has finally cleared up just as Stephen Ar bhr said it would at times I was very low having a bald patch on the side of my head that I had to keep applying my wife's brown eye shadow to conceal.the growth has started and although it's still very early days I'm quite optimistic about my expected result.the next 3 months will be very exciting.I'm now able to style my hair again partly because my native has grown back but my new hair are making a difference even if just reducing the contrast o my scalp.the early growths are around 1cm long now.so far so good and Im really glad at this stage I went through with it ,I think when my grafts fully grow in and the density increases I'm gonna be very pleased.
