  1. Hey HTers, Just wanted to update. I'm just over two months out and look pretty much like I did before the HT. I think I'm a little thinner, but my girlfriend and mom say its not true. I did develop some pimples about five weeks out and Dr. Limmer put me on some antibiotics. They help tremendously. I looked at the scar this morning and it is really fading. A bit of a small ridge on the left side of the scar, but I think that is normal for tri-closure. Not much to update, will post some pics soon. All-n-all, a very good expierence so far. Now if only a few months would quickly g
  2. Dazed, I'm roughly six weeks out. I'm going through the frumpy stage. I have some pimples, but other than that normal side effect, I have been pleased with Dr. Limmer's work. The expierence was a great one (as far as surgery goes.) I would go back to Dr. Limmer without any doubts. Toad
  3. Hey all, Now at four weeks post-op, I finally finished re-answering all the questions on my blog. Not much to report, which is a good thing. The donor area has settled way down. No more soreness or pain. It's a little numb and tingly. Every once in a while a small peice of internal stitching will work its way out. That is somwhat uncomfortable, like a sore pimple. There is still a slight ridge in one area and a small bump at another point, but it really seems to be healing well. When I pull my hair up to see it, the scar is still red, but the train tracks have faded away. The
  4. Greg, I agree that Dr. Limmer and his staff's character drive to a degree (skill is obviously there as well) what so far has been a good expierence for me. To update. I posted a from above shot with hair pulled back from day 7. I literally only have a handful of scabs that are visible if I search for them. Pink hue and, of course, a beard of hair. The donor area is still somewhat bothersome. It looks great, but it has some tightness and laying on it hurts. I think last HT I finally felt like I hadn't had the procedure after about two months. I'm starting to forget anything was
  5. Bill, Thanks for the help getting my blog running again. I think everything should work now (we'll see if I added my blog back in my signature file correctly). Hairtobe, Your blog looks great. Happy growing. Looking forward to watching your progress. I to am very thankful for this forum. Wantego, Thanks for the well wishes. In accordance with your request to keep up, I have updated my blog with my pre and immediate post (including scar and hidden scar pics). I'm a week out and can't believe how clean and well healed I already am. The donor area still bothers me.
  6. Hey Fellow HTers, I recently had my second HT at the Limmer clinic in San Antonio, Tx. I will first start out by stating that I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Lehr who performed my first HT. Lehr no longer performs HTs and now dedicates his profession to his dermatology practice. I would have gone back to Lehr in a heartbeat if he had not retired from the business. He always told me I was on a two HT plan (he would have also been less expensive ??“ he gave second timers a BIG discount). That being said, I am thrilled at having gone to see Dr. Brad Limmer and have
  7. Hey All, Gotta be quick. dreams - my whole point is hang in there, as Bill said the end result is what matters. I do think as everyone has said you might need/want a second HT, but happiness (the subjective state that it is) may well befall you after about 10 months. Hair quality, expectations, age, surrounding hair thickness, amount of donor hair, etc all come into play. Bill - I did a quick update from the same angles on 8.5 and 10 months - so go check it out! I am so darn busy that I rarely have time for much. The coincidence was I just took 10 month pictures and wanted t
  8. Hey HTers, Just a drive by. I just wanted to share that I'm now 10 months post-op and thrilled with my results from Dr. Lehr. He told me right up front that I would need two HTs. My girlfriend thinks I'm crazy for thinking that in about 6 months I will get a second on. I only hate certain lights now. A direct beem of light from right above is not to flattering from my perspective, but again my girlfriend thinks I'm just a little obsessive/sensitive. I have some new pics to put up but have been extremely busy. I just want dreams4me to know I'm happy. Look at my blog. I had
  9. I go away for a while and come back to see Bill sufferring from delusions of grandeuer! hehehehehehe Seriously, Bill was already a staple of this community in my mind, glad to see you have an official title. Not suprised you are a counselor. Your words are always thoughtful and encouraging. Congrats! Toad
  10. Nice clean work! I'll be you will be very pleased when stuff starts sproutin. Happy growing, Toad
  11. Just flat awesome for only 11 weeks. I'm very jealous (in the good way ). Took me a good 5 months before that kind of cosmetic difference. Happy Growing! Toad
  12. Yes, good luck NN. I've always been impressed w/ Shapiro's work. Nice choice. Happy healing and growing!
  13. Hey HTers, I know I keep saying I'll be around more, but man am I a busy guy (I know all the finger violins!) I threw up a pictures at 6.5 months on my blog. The hair is starting to come in now. I got a haircut after this photo, and it looks a lot better. But I try to get photos when my hair is the same time period between haircuts as the last (so as to have a better reflection on what is occuring). Even the week that has passed since I took this photo, my hair seems to have more volume and I see some little hairs that I have come to recognize as hairs that will grow. Also, I no

  15. Hey 10 yr out, I too had surgery from Dr. Lehr. I am now about six months out. I am pleased thus far as well. You mentioned being a private person and not wanting to post your pictures on the internet. If I might suggest, you can easily take pictures (look at my blog) that do not identify yourself, but give others a chance to see the work you've had done and to help you analyse what is going on at any given moment. But certainly I recommend you taking pictures for your own personal record keeping. It does me tremendous good each month to look back at the previous months pictures a
