  1. I enjoy watching you produce consistently great results, just like you did for me! Congrats Dr G!
  2. Good stuff brah! Congrats on your results. As the texture of your hair changes, it will get even better!
  3. I know this is easier said than done, but patience is your only option right now. Even if you decide on having another procedure (which you may not need), you should wait atleast 2 years post-op before making your decision.
  4. After my HT, I stayed away from social engagements for a few weeks and I too was eager to hit the gym. You'll hear a lot of different advice, and I really don't know what the right answer is so I'll share what I did. My doc advised me not to run until 4 weeks after my HT. When I did run, i made sure to keep the area nice and clean. I did not start lifting weights until 2 months after my procedure, and when I did, I started with lighter weights than I am used to. The bottom line was, when it doubt, err on the side of caution.
  5. I haven't been on here for a while..and its good to see some familiar faces, but back to your question. Think of it this way...you'll have more than you have now! It's natural to have these questions after your procedure. I know that I worried about mine constantly for the first 3 months after I had my HT. You've taken the plunge and I'm sure it will turn out great, but you will only truly know once it all grows back in, since everybody's hair characteristics are different. In the meantime, try not to think about it! Good luck!
  6. I started using dermatch on the scar after 10 days and on the transplanted area after a month. I used toppik and dermatch everyday after the 1st month, and it did not hamper my result.
  7. Take a deep breath. Pick up the phone and call both docs. That is often the hardest step.Keep in mind that it takes between 12 and 18 months to see the full results of your transplant, so IF you do decide to do this, you will want to do it sooner rather than later. If you aren't on meds, you should consider getting on them. Also experiment with dermmatch and toppik. These concealers will help give you a fuller look while you are waiting for your transplant results to fully develop, and may even persuade you to push your transplant out to a future date. Finally, at 26,, I would personally prefer to do a smaller session and keep enough donor hair for future sessions. Good luck! People on this forum are great and will guide through every step of your journey!
  8. Great result Dr Gabel. The hairline looks very soft and natural. I'm sure she's ecstatic! Congrats on another great outcome!
  9. I remember this point is being the hardest part of my joureny. I'll join broker in saying "Hang in there, mate" ...it will all be worth it VERY soon!
  10. Singe, 2 and 3 hairs are naturally occurring on your scalp. My understanding is that the best look is achieved by using single hairs in the hairline. Achieving a soft natural look is a function of a skilled doc. Pick a good one, and you'll be happy! Good luck!
  11. your best bet is to buy a clipper and do it yourself, in stages. Its not hard to do. You can always go in to have it evened out. I buzzed down to a 2 , a month after and concealed my scar with dermatch. At 2 weeks, I was still wearing a hat to work. Good luck!
  12. Looking good Drew! I remember following your 1st HT with Dr Wong, and being quite impressed with the transformation then. It looks like you had a lot of growth between months 6 and 10 on your fist HT, so you can still look forward to alot more growth. Congrats and good luck!
  13. Congrats on your HT! The waiting is often the hardest part, relax and lay low for a bit...it will all be worth it very soon!
