  1. It's been about 4 months since my first procedure. I had a small procedure of around 700 grafts and if I would've known then what I do now I would've had more. The doc I went to was convincing that 2 small procedures was the way to go. I've got a few questions before I go for the 2nd procedure. 1) By doing small procedures am I screwing my donor supply up for later procedures if I need them? I've read things about scalp laxity etc. and it has started to concern me. 2) I think another 700 grafts would be all that I would need (1400 total) for awhile to achieve good density. I'm probably a nw2 or nw3. Should I go ahead as planned and have another procedure or just let nature take its course and wait a few years until I need a bigger procedure? 3) If I do go ahead with the 2nd procedure, how long should I wait until I schedule my appt? Again, I'm about 4 months out from my first procedure. 4) I was told that the scar for the 2nd procedure would go right where the scar for the 1st procedure is located. My scar actually looks pretty good right now, does this make the scar worse? Having had a small procedure, I feel like I could still cut my hair very short and if anyone noticed the scar I could just say I had an accident and they would believe it. This has already worked on my hairdresser. 4) I've considered FUE/FIT for the 2nd procedure but since I already have a scar I was wondering if there would be any advantage of going that direction? Any thoughts? 5) Is there as much shock loss on 2nd procedures as there is on 1st HT's? This past 3 months has been hard, I experienced quite a bit of loss. Fortunately, I would say I'm about 90% back to normal. Any advice will be appreciated. This site has really helped me over the past few months. I wish I would've spent as much time on here before the procedure as I have been since I had the procedure. IF I had I probably would've just had 1 procedure of around 1400 and would not be contemplating on going back for a 2nd for awhile.
