  1. I do not feel any ridge at all. The shock loss has filled in nicely. I visit with Dr. Arocha in a couple of weeks and he will assess my progress further. Overall, I am pleased with my results. The donor scar healed pretty fast but the shock loss did take some time to fill back in.
  2. Thank you! I have my 1 year follow- up with Dr. Arocha mid July. His assistant has consistently contacted me during the year to check on me. Very professional and much appreciated!
  3. Mine started growing back early and by the 5-6 month mark it had filled in considerably.
  4. I had some donor shock loss and the hair grows back. Not a concern.
  5. Each month it thickens up. It appears as though the texture changes.
  6. Quick update. I'm letting my hair grow longer on top and man !! I'm loving it! Very full. There is one little spot on my right side that I will take a pic of. This will probably need a touch up but all the rest is great ! p.s. As you can tell, I don't mind revealing my entire face. I don't understand why people blur out their faces but hey, that's their choice , as for me, I'm proud and pleased of my choices. I want to show off my rock star looks with my new hair !! Thanks again to Dr Arocha, he's the real rock star here ! more pics to come, chow for now.
  7. Thank you. I'm very happy!! I'm fortunate that my hair is thick and medium curl when long. I feel young again!!
  8. Thank you. I would like to plan a trip back to Arocha and have him assess my crown. I also have some stubble on the right section only. This has not grown and I called him a few months ago to relate that to him.He assured me it would eventually grow. My concern is that my left side is more dense than my right and he obviously needs to see it in person to see what the deal is. Other than that I am very pleased so far. I also have to remember that the final result can only be assessed at 18 months. Current pics coming soon. Again congrats !!
  9. Congrats on your procedure! Arocha did my HT July last year, 2500 grafts. I've been very busy at work and will update my results this week. I'm almost 11 months out and I am very pleased with my results. Month 5-6 was my peak time , and was amazed at all the hair that came in. Next up will be my crown and maybe some more density in the front but for now, I'm so happy I have hair to frame my face. Keep us posted ! Here are a few pics from a couple of months ago.Last pic was 13 weeks out.
  10. I don't. My hair is very thick and full. I simply have male pattern baldness. My hairline has been fixed and all I lack is the crown. At 51 I'm pretty blessed to have what I have. No signs of alopecia.
  11. Thank you and will do. I did forget to mention that when I chatted with my doc I asked him if I could get another FUT to fill in my crown. He said its dependent upon donor site . I have had 2 FUT procedures. First was around 10 years ago with Dr Lehr ( Oklahoma City) and does not do them anymore. It was around 2000 but I doubt that number and results were sub par. Second was just last year Dr Arocha ( Houston, Tx) and so far very pleased with results, 2500 grafts . With all this being said, Arocha said he would absolutely be able to do another FUT and went on to explain the benefits of FUT respective to each patient . I think it is very important for patients to keep open communication with their surgeon on a regular basis. Yes, these doctors are busy but if they can find the time to talk with their patients, that's one more quality to give us peace of mind.
