    I’m sorry but that is the only picture I had prior to the second surgery. Hope it helps. I’m sure cutting your hair with a 1-guard would be a safe way to go .....if you choose to in the future.

    FUE Scarring - Small Procedure

    I don’t have a better picture of my donor area after 1,750 grafts were re-located in 2012 but I hope this picture helps. Scarring is barely discernible. I’m sure the advice above in this thread from Melvin and others, is valuable information. Cutting with a 1-guard may be the answer. This picture was taken two years after my first surgery (5,125 total grafts).
  3. Everything looks quite normal. Take a look at my website (below). Look in the archives section for Sept. 2012. I provide a narrative of everything to expect including pictures and videos. It may help with expectations going forward. Good luck and keep us posted with your progress.

    HT#2 with Dr. Nader

    Looking good. I’m sure you will be pleased with the growth in the coming weeks. Thanks for the update and new pictures.

    FUE isn’t scar free but here’s a picture I’ve posted many times. Keep in mind the area highlited generated over 1,750 grafts from my first surgery. This picture was taken minutes before a second procedure over 2 years after the first surgery. There is very little or no discernible scarring.
  6. That’s a very interesting balding pattern. I’m with Melvin (Moderator) get another look and opinion. Please keep us posted with any news and progress.
  7. Thank you.....NO. I’ll take my 7,125 grafts all extracted and placed by the hand of Dr. Vories. I believe the Artas Robot uses a relatively large punch size as well. Well said....Spanker and others.
  8. That's a tricky one. Not sure what has caused that. It's probably a temporary issue. I'm curious that you only had a 200 graft procedure? Did you leave out a zero (2,000)? Can you tell us a bit more?

    Sleep position after FUE

    I also slept in a similar position. Since you're at the four day mark, your grafts should be just fine with no danger of dislodging at this point (under normal circumstances). I also do not think you have to worry about any scarring recurring at this point. You should be just fine. If you want to see what to expect going forward, you can visit my blog (below). I documented everything with narratives, pictures, videos, etc. Just look at the archives on the right side of the screen and click on September 2012. Good luck! You have a lot to look forward to in 3-4 months.
  10. Good luck during your “anagen phase” of the hair growth. You should experience about a 1cm or nearly a half inch of growth per month. Thanks for the update.

    Best of luck to you. Glad you chose FUE and willing to share your experience with us. You have a lot to look forward to. Post some “before” pictures, game plan, and how many grafts you expect to harvest.
  12. Very nice crown results with only 2,500 grafts. I’m sure your patient is quite pleased.
  13. Looks very nice. I had a mega-surgery (5,125 grafts) over 3 straight days in 2012. Melvin is right.....very age appropriate. Congratulations.
  14. Very nice crown results.....congratulations. Looks great.

    Can donor area regenerate new follicles?

    Regenerating new follicles??? Sounds like a dishonest way to lure gullible patients.
