  1. @Melvin-Moderator Thanks Melvin! On month two after my 2nd surgery. Looking forward to the next few months of growth.
  2. @Steeeve Thank you! I took the opportunity to have a surgery while I can work from home. Zoom meetings don’t require the back of my head haha. I was happy with the amount of coverage after the surgery. I thought I was going to only get the midscalp and scar done, but Dr. Arocha was also able to reinforce the hairline and place grafts in the crown as well. That was a great feeling.
  3. Thanks Aaron! I went with fue because I wanted to place grafts in my old fut scar. Time will tell if I can cut my hair a little shorter in the back. What I’m looking forward to the most is the changes in the hairline and midscalp to crown area. I have very wavy hair so hope that will help create the illusion of density in the back - an area that has bothered me since my mid twenties!
  4. How true! I feel I would have had gone completely bald on top if not for the first procedure. And I also started finasteride in 2016 which helped a lot.
  5. Mycroft, The FUE procedure was around 2723 grafts. Although the bulk went into the midscalp and crown areas, Dr. Arocha placed some in my hair line as well and in my scar. I will post some more pictures around the four month mark. Today I'm exactly at the one month mark!
  6. This picture I placed a filter on to highlight the areas that were done back in 2016.
  7. Hey guys, that's me. It has been 4 years since my FUT procedure, and I'm pleased with my results from Dr. Arocha. The first surgery in 2016 was to rebuild my hairline so nothing was done in the crown. It was all frontal third work. The second procedure which I had just one month ago was an FUE to address the midscalp. I was very pleased with how much area Dr. Arocha and his staff was able to cover. Now it's time for the yearlong wait! Hopefully hairs start coming out in bunches around month five like last time! This pic was taken a day after my first procedure to show you the area he worked on.
  8. I had fut 3000 with Dr. Arocha four years ago. Having a second procedure this month (April 2020) to focus on midscalp and fut scar. Pleased with the hairline!
  9. Hello all! I have my second hair transplant scheduled with Dr. Arocha this month. First one was a FUT 3000 four years ago and this month will be a FUE. My first transplant went very well and the results were a big boost to my confidence and appearance so I’m looking forward to my next procedure. To Dr. Arocha: I’ve heard that the 2nd hair transplant takes a bit longer to get the full result. Is this typically the case? If so, how long will it take for the full result? Any difference between fut and fue in terms of the timeline? Also, I will be having grafts implanted in my previous donor scar. Is there any difference in graft survival rate in this area than the rest of the scalp? Thanks Doc!
  10. I had my hair transplant nearly 6 months ago and I feel like it has already made a big difference for me. I was a norwood 4 heading 5 pretty fast and the worst part of it was seeing myself in pictures taken during the holidays or special events and seeing my hairline getting progressively worst. I look forward to every haircut I get because I get to see the transplanted hairs growing in and blending in better with the rest of my hair. I usually get a number 6 cut at the barber. Also, I started finasteride over 6 months ago and can see it making a difference in my crown area.
