Now that hair loss is no longer an issue for me...



As my username and blog title suggest, I have had the FUT hair replacement procedure. The result, is that hair loss is no longer a concern of mine. I read this site morning, noon and night some days. I asked questions, I followed the progression of individuals right from post op to months into the future. I decided upon doctors then changed my mind, many times.

Nearly two weeks ago I had a very fortunate day with Dr Rahal. I had modest expectations of 5,000 grafts going into the operation but was amazed when thanks to a plentiful donor graft he would be able to transplant 7,152, ! I had believed I would have to go through the annoyance of post op and the tedious waiting for results twice or more to get the coverage i was looking for.

So here I am. 13 days later. Overjoyed that I took the plunge and VERY satisfied with Dr Rahal and his VERY supportive staff.

Please check on my results as I am pleased to share them and the very skilfull work of Dr Rahal !

Got my stitches out today, and what luck. Who was working at my neighbourhood walk in clinic but a former hair replacement surgeon. Seriously. He sold his practice (as he was getting older) and moved into the neighbourhood and works part time only at the clinic.

It was a bit more of a "to do" than I had expected. But in the last few days I have been reading a lot around the site about "donor scars". So I was a still pretty nervous when he piped up with "whoever did this suture work is excellent" He said the grafts I had received looked "fine, just fine" which was quite the compliment from the this tight lipped fellow. Now I know my grafts are top notch, there is nothing new there. But too hear him praise Dr Rahals work on the donor stitching and to tell me the scar will be "very fine and hard to see" has made me quite happy. Too say the least.

Congratulations! That's an incredible amount of grafts in a single procedure and you are sure to be overjoyed once your new hair growth fills in. I'm truly looking forward to seeing the final result!


Happy growing!
