  1. 1. If i had to do it all over again, i would definitley go with Dr. Cooley again. I met with a couple of other docs before my first procedure but i felt Dr. Cooley was the best man for the job. Which we all know, there are many good docs out there, but i think his work is some of the best around. The only thing i don't like, my scar didn't heal very well on my left side. If i shave my head with a guard #5, it shows. If i could do it over again, i would probably do fue. However, it is more expensive. 2. The only thing i may have done differently was emphasized my hairline. I think a lot of times patients only have a certain amount of grafts they can afford and what not. Thats how it was for me. I basically asked him to do what he can with the grafts i could afford. I went into it thinking that i may have to have a 2nd hair transplant, im sure there are cases that people are content with one transplant. But as time goes by, you always want more. 3. If i remember correctly, when i met with him about my touch up procedure. He did seem a little reluctant or hesitant to address the issue i was referring to. He said it depended on how many "fine" hairs or "ones" he could get to put in the hairline. 4. Yes the bathroom pics are about 24 months actually 5. He didn't seem annoyed at all. He saw the area i was referring to and agreed with me. The only thing i thought he was reluctant about was being able to find enough "fine" hairs to put in the hairline, to have a natural appearance.
  2. Congrats uklad! You’re in good hands with Dr. Cooley. Happy growing. Pic1. Indoor natural lighting. This is the spot I was concerned about that made me want round 2. Pic 2. Bathroom lighting Pic 3. Bathroom lighting Pic 4. 3 months post op surgery 1. After a lot of shedding.
  3. Hey guys. Sorry to keep y’all waiting. A lot has went on since my second procedure. I have move states and changed jobs. Thought i would check in on my thread. I will post pics of my new dew later tonight or tomorrow. Sorry for the delay. I’m very happy with the results.
  4. Hey Keith, just wondering if your second transplant, seems to be growing slower than the first. Mine certainly seems that way...
  5. mine didnt start until ab month four. and it is a slow process
  6. since this was your 2nd surgery, did you wait two or three weeks for suture removal?
  7. Just wanted to share a little about my second hair transplant with Dr Cooley yesterday. About a month ago I met with dr Cooley and his staff about adding graphs to my right temple. Also to a spot on my scar that was a little thin. We first decided to do 400 grafts to add density to my right side. My left side wasn't as bad, I wasn't concerned about it anyway because the way I part my hair. The surgery went great. Just as expected. He addressed my concerned areas and then some. I paid for 400 grafts, however he saw some other area in my hairline that he could improve. So that's just what he did, I ended with 903 grafts. 503 free of charge. I think this says a lot about the professionalism of him and his staff. If you are considering a transplant, take the time to meet with dr Cooley. You won't regret it. As I was leaving yesterday I asked him where he concentrated the graphs. He drew up a quick illustration. I'll be updating this thread along the way if y'all wanna see the progress.
  8. well that is good news, just making sure I will be able to conceal it ok. ive secured my date with Dr. Cooley;)
  9. well, you inspired me to book another touch up transplant with Dr. Cooley. Just out of curiosity, have you had any noticeable shedding of the hairs from transplant one, in your hairline?
  10. I see what y'all mean, y'all both make sense. I don't want a perfect hairline, just a little more behind it, ya know? But if that would make it look worse then I will live with it. Today was a windy day outside, I could feel my hair separating in the wind, if you know what I mean. I looked in my mirror, while outside, and it clearly looked no where close to natural. That's what I wan to fix. If the caliber of hair is too thick. I feel like more density would help disguise the issue. I'm gonna go see dr Cooley again and get his thoughts. He is a straight shooter
  11. Yeah jagger I do remember. I appreciate it. I just looked at your results and... wow! They look really good. I wouldn't think you needed another but like you said, if you've got the means, why not! And we are our own worse critics.ha I more than likely will be following your path with a second transplant if this topik thing doesn't work out. Can't wait to follow your progress. Good luck!
