  1. Happy New Year to you all. Thanks for posting more pics! Yes it is obvious that the density is low and that the angles and direction of hair is off too. A good repair would be needed. You will need around 3000 grafts considering the area that needs coverage. You might be able to camouflage some of the more odd angled grafts or even extracting some and placing them back in a more appropriate manner. Both H&W and Dr. Rassman are excellent surgeons ofcourse.
  2. Hi @George27 it is perfectly normal to see all sorts of scabbing, dead skin, shedding hairs few days after the surgery and really within the first 4 weeks or more. It is unlikely that follicles fell and in fact the follicle separates and stays deep in the skin. In 3 months some of them slowly begin to break through the skin. Final results are usually 12-18 months from Surgery. i will not worry about what you just described. It is a long waiting game for sure! All the best.
  3. Yes. Plavix is an anti-platelet sort of medication and when someone is on it, then in most cases that person had some stents placed and I would therefore consult with their cardiologist as to the best regimen on when to stop it before or what to switch them to pre-op. In some cases of older stents/stable conditions, they may clear stopping it for a short period and then resume it after surgery. Remember, with elective surgery, safety has to come first and the risks of any cardiac event has to be minimized to justify having the procedure.
  4. Blood thinners pre-op are generally stopped pre-op if only used for pre-cautionary measures. We usually consult with the patient's cardiologist if indicated for cardiac conditions such as stents or Afib etc. There is usually a protocol that can be followed in certain cases where the dose is reduced or shortened or even switched to a shorter half-life version. I usually prefer to resume back the normal medications as soon as possible following surgery as there seems to be no harm in doing so. Remember that most of these anti-coagulants take some time before they start working fully and therefore if something has been stopped for few days before surgery, then they will not start working immediately when resumed. Therefore, there is no need to delay resuming them as it will take sometime for their action to resume. It is always important to liaise with the cardiologist in cases where anti-coagulation is important.
  5. Transplanted hair will grow without help if properly transplanted through the entire process. Nonetheless, the native hair needs good maintenance using what was discussed. A hair transplant is similar to having a “Hollywood smile” done at the dentist. You would still need to brush your teeth daily.
  6. I totally agree with @LaserCap. Invest in approved maintenance regimens (minoxidil, finasteride or low level light therapy.)
  7. Topical minoxidil (regaine or rogaine) has a half life of 22 hours. Therefore once a day is enough.
  8. There are different ways to go about that. It depends where the main problem is. If it’s the hairline, you can either wait and grow it longer and try styling products to fix the angles and directions. You can also have certain ones extracted and recycled with the addition of fine grafts in between with some more irregularities to make the hairline fine and natural looking. Trust me, it can sometimes make a huge difference removing one odd looking graft.
  9. Hi @jooeey can you kindly share some photos? Difficulty in styling is not likely to be whether you had lateral or saggital sites made. It might be the exit angle itself or other technical issues. In fact, I find lateral/coronal incisions great for areas that need a fairly flat angle (temple points, eyebrows etc) as you can have the blade flushed more easily with the skin. Let me known in all cases.
  10. It is not uncommon for surgeons to do a maximum of 2000 grafts per day with FUE, especially if their level of involvement is right. It sounds like a very reasonable advice to split the case. As @Dr Blake Bloxham mentioned, it reduces fatigue and out of body time.
  11. @akc this needs to be treated by your doctor or a dermatologist. There is definitely an infection based on the photos and I do believe it warrants a proper swab to culture what type of infection it is and also some oral antibiotic medication in addition to some topical treatment. You have to see someone locally.
  12. I personally believe you should take the doctors advice regarding the removal time. Leaving things longer is not always a good thing as you could increase the risk of pain, obvious scarring and infections. It is of course needed in some case when healing is slower than usual based on medical conditions (diabetes, cancers etc), however, reduced laxity does not necessarily mean that it needs to stay longer. In fact in some cases, staying longer unnecessarily could be related to widened scarring too. Was the wound closed in two layers or just the staples?
  13. Yes exactly. It’s good to see more photos and have details about your age, family history etc.
  14. Can you kindly post more photos in order to better answer your questions? These pics show a good mature hairline.
