  1. I had my second hair transplant recently to lower my hairline. I had my first surgery a long time ago, and went back for a second surgery to bring my hairline a little lower. I have a bit of thinning at the top of my head, but it hasn't been bad enough to warrant doing any surgery there (yet). Since my most recent op however the top of my head - which has never been operated on - is shedding like there is no tomorrow. I don't know what is going on. I haven't been losing hair like this since I was a teenager! I am on Finasteride and Minoxidil and I am going to start some PRP soon too. Has anyone else experienced loss like this after surgery in a non-operated area? I am absolutely freaking out at how bad this is.
  2. After my Rahal surgery I swelled like nothing else. I remember it being 2 or 3 weeks before my face looked normal again.
  3. I don't think anyone beats Dr Rahal for hairline... it's worth the extra travel. I travelled from Europe to see him 10 years ago for my hairline and it was the best thing I ever did.

    Rahal strip recovery

    I will ask them - but I am getting my hairline done, and with Rahal it will definitely be super-dense packed, so I guess I am going to have to just suck it up to get the result I want!

    Rahal strip recovery

    Awesome! Which zones did you have your grafts placed into? Did you have the hairline done? I had 4000 grafts last time... not sure how many I will need this time. I want to lower my hairline a bit more - last time we were conservative with hairline design because I was young.

    Rahal strip recovery

    I think it was the recipient site that caused the swelling. I hope it is less this time... would love to hear from anyone who has been to Rahal recently!

    Rahal strip recovery

    When I had my first procedure I was relatively young and so we were quite conservative because we weren't sure what the future would hold for me in terms of hair loss. Now I am 10 years older and my hair loss has been pretty stable on meds, we've decided to go back and lower the hairline a little more and thicken up the top.
  8. So, I had a strip with Rahal 10 years ago. The results were amazing, and I couldn't have been happier, so I am planning round 2 with him soon. The recovery however from Round 1 was pretty horrendous - my eyes were swollen shut for almost a week after surgery. Has anyone had a strip procedure with him in more recent years? How was your recovery in terms of pain and swelling? I'm hoping things may have changed in his practice between then and now so that I may get a bit of an easier recovery this time. I HATED the recovery process last time and can't believe I am planning to do this again. But the results were worth it.
