I just finished my HT with Dr. Ciniks office. I had 3400 donor from back of head, 1000 from beard/under chin, and 300 from the chest. Originally he said 3000-3500 total but I was shocked to find out they got 4700 total! It was pretty painful at times I wont lie. It lasted 7-8 hours. The only part that is sore afterwards is the tape bandage on my chest lol.
One thing that puzzles me was towards the end. It seemed like the techs were already done placing the implanted hairs into their recipient sites (after Dr. Cinik made the channel openings). The techs then seemed to pull out hair/or skin not really sure mostly from the back of the head. They did this like 300-400 times then sprayed with liquid. We were already done with the implantation at that point so why do you think they used the tweezers at that point to what seemed like pulling out more hairs? After they used the tweezers (it hurt alot by the way) they then rinsed with spray liquid. Dried and put bandages. It could not have been they were taking out newly implanted grafts because that would not have hurt. I think they were taking out existing hair or skin around the newly implanted grafts. But why? I asked them but they didnt understand what I was asking and they seemed like the final result was fabulous. So do any of you guys ever have this issue? Thanks
