  1. Loo looking really nice! This is going to be a great result! Congratulations!! Mark
  2. Thank you kelmf01! How are you coming along?
  3. Hi everyone! here are a few update photos from my FUE with Dr Gabel, I’m about a week shy of nine months in these photos. Everything is going well, I still have a little numbness from the procedure but it’s slowly fading. That’s it for now!
  4. Nope, I have never used rogaine. I only use finasteride 1.25 daily. Rogaine can cause heart palpitations and I have heart issues so wasn’t going to try it!
  5. Thank you for the compliment! I appreciate it very much. My one month shed photo is close to what I had for hair prior to surgery. I did have some shock loss from surgery and my one month photo shows a little less hair than what I actually had. I did shed more than baseline but it all came back and filled in. Dr Gabel told me this would happen.
  6. Hey all, here are a few pics 5-1/2 months out now from my surgery with Doctor Gabel. Everything is going well, no problems at all. best to all, Mark
  7. Hi Kelmf01, Congratulations! Looks like everything went very well. The work looks beautiful and clean. The density looks fantastic. I think you are going to be really happy with Dr. Gabel’s work. Im glad everything went smoothly for you! This will be a great result, Keep posting pictures, it’s fun to watch the progression! Mark
  8. Hi kelmf01, Progresding really well. Redness subsided within about two months, shockloss...I didn’t really notice any as far as I could tell. I wore a hat sporadically starting about two months before surgery, sort of got everyone used to seeing me in it. Wore the hat for about three months and now wear it only if I’m in the sun for a period of time such as in the field or at the beach to protect my head. Just use a hat and you’ll be fine, here is a pic from today right after a haircut, this is exactly 4 months and three days from surgery. (But who’s counting) No. 2 blade, high fade, top left longer. My head is still a bit numb in the recipient area, other than that no issues. Everything has been flawless, Dr. Gabel knows what he is doing... Best of luck to all! Mark
  9. Dr. Gabel charged me $7.00 dollars per graft up to 2000 grafts. After 2000 grafts the price was $6.00. Best to call his office for an official cost...
  10. I’m 56 years old and started propecia 6 mos ago. I don’t know if it’s helping but it doesn’t seem to bother me so I’ll keep using it for the forseeable future.
  11. No sorry, I couldn’t find the pre-ops I got from Dr Gabel. I’ll call the office and see if I can get one. I know I was a Norwood 3 though, I had deep corner recession and a frontal tuft that was decent. The redness lasted about a month and was never really too bad to begin with. so far things are coming along really well...
  12. I’ll try to find one I can post when I get a chance...
