Advice for Hair Loss Sufferers Considering Hair Transplant Surgery


My Story

Found 6 results

  1. I'm 20 but I've been receding at the temples quite a far bit. My vertex is fine, but my front is just a big nono. I know it's not as bad as some of the pictures posted on here, but it's definitely happening. I can't style my hair the way my friends are doing, and getting sweaty or going swimming started becoming nightmares for me. I've started minoxidil 3 weeks ago, but I'm sure it'll need more time before the results come in. Any ideas what I could or should do for my current situation? Thanks.
  2. Has anyone used cucumin successfully before? It's really recommended on a lot of board and one of IH's top 6. I'm wondering though if anyone experienced any sort of shed while using it though. Either people seem to swear by it or hate it and experience a temple shed. I know this isn't much of a neutral ready site but wanted everyone's thoughts nonetheless.
  3. My Hair Transplant Experience Transplant Date – July 30th,31st, and Aug 2nd 2013 Surgeon - Dr. Hakan Doganay Tools Used - Choi Hair Transplanter / Implanter Pen Technique Graph Break Down Day 1 Singles - 473 Doubles - 562 Triples - 729 Total - 1764 Day 2 Singles - 520 Doubles - 495 Triples - 733 Total - 1748 Day 3 - Temple Triangle Touch-up Singles - 80 Doubles - 0 Triples - 30 Total - 110 Total Graphs Used - 3622 My History In the words of Mr. Burns to a newly once again bald Homer Simpson, “I too know the sting of male pattern baldness”. I’ve been slowly but steadily losing my hair since high school. I’m one of the guys that never had great hair and the high forehead look became the norm. I started wearing my hair medium length in my mid twenties to help cover my receding hairline the best I could and 4-5 years back, at the age of 28 or so, I began thinking about the possibility of receiving a HT. Money was the main obstacle and I look back at this as a blessing because I would likely of made the mistake of going with someone local and as cheap as possible. In 2010 I found the Hair Restoration Network and started to get informed. Why Dr. Hakan? Like many others who first start to consider receiving a HT I made the mistake of looking for a Doctor like I would a closeout sale at the mall. I was too concerned with price and it played too large a role in who I was considering. Ironically this mindset is what brought me to the Hair Restoration Network and I quickly began to realize this “penny saved is a penny earned” mindset is very dangerous when considering a medical procedure. The reality is I didn’t have the money for a HT by a top US doctor, so I began to look for doctors who were more affordable but still VERY good. I looked into most of the highly regarded doctors recommended by members of this forum and the Network itself. I decided I would get a second job, save the money, and do it right. But I will admit that price still played a role in my choice, although greatly lessened and not to a detriment. I was considering a number of doctors when I came across Dr. Hakan’s results and I was instantly very impressed. HTN Recommended – Being recommended on this site went a long way to helping me feel comfortable using Dr. Hakan and gave me confidence that he could be trusted and was whole the package. However, I know that there are a lot of very good surgeons who are not recommended for one small reason or another and I wouldn't rule out a surgeon because he is not recommended. In short, I trust this community, and I wasn't able to find negatives on here. Natural Looking Hairlines - What stood out to me was the natural look of his hairlines, something I had only seen in a handful of the best FUE doctors. I really liked the stray wispy hairs, angles, and softness or his hairlines. He has the ability to do this and still achieve the density that looks full. In short I saw his work and it had the look of what I was going for. You can have a very good surgeon and not have that artistic feel and I felt Dr. Hakan had both. Communication – Some of the Doctors and clinics I contacted had poor communication levels. Most were prompt and professional but some of the doctors I had on the short list just took so long to get back to me and didn’t always answer my questions that it put me on edge, and in the end this was a negative factor that made me look elsewhere. I feel communication is crucial, both in knowing what a client wants and putting them at ease with a very big decision. If communication is not at a professional level then it makes me start to wonder about other things too. I found Dr. Hakans assistants to be very helpful, informed and prompted. One of my concerns was being treated like a number, and I didn’t feel this way. This comes down to taking the TIME to do it right, and I feel they did. Goals and Concerns - Like most, the first and foremost goal was to have natural looking reasonably full head of hair. After doing research it seems I have some issues that made that a challenge. My hair is of a fine/normal type and I know getting the coverage can be a challenge. Another challenge is that I had almost no temple triangle points. I have a pretty small face structure and I felt that not doing temple point work would leave a Tom Hanks/ Nick Cage like wide unnatural looking forehead. Plus my temple areas are more blond and finer than the hair towards the back of my head. So the main concern was how much temple triangle to have done and can they look natural both in the color/coarseness and the angle the hair lays. Some Doctors weren’t too excited about doing the temple points, but Dr. Hakan seemed confident he could and said my goals were realistic. Day 1 - Arriving in Antalya 10:30am - Arrive from Istanbul and meet at the airport 10:45am – Met at terminal by and driven to Hotel by Tugrul and was impressed with his friendliness and accessibility. He was very interested to know what it was that had convinced me to come all the way from the States. 11:15am - Checked in to hotel, an all inclusive small resort named “Sea Life” hotel just across the street from the beach. Pretty nice with perks that include meals, tennis courts, etc. Everyone mistook me for Russian since about 75% hotel guests were Russians. 12:00pm – I mentioned to Tugrul that I would like to have a consultation with Dr. Hakan before it was time to go under the knife the next day. I was worried things would be a bit to hurried I wanted to have a chance to ask my questions etc. Tugrul told me Dr. Hakan would come meet with me after work. 1:00pm - Went to beach and swam for a couple hours. 5:00pm - Met Dr. Hakan and his assistant/translator Tugrul at the Starbucks across the street to discuss the next day’s procedure. Dr. Hakan was friendly, a bit jovial, and didn’t seem to be in a hurry which impressed me since no one likes to be doing work after hours. I had a list of goals, questions and concerns and we went through them one by one and Dr. Hakan answered them clearly and directly. I felt a bit was lost in translation, which unfortunately is often the case. Overall I was very happy to have had this meeting and it helped ease my concerns. He told me my hair was quite fine, but not as fine as many others with lighter hair so that made me feel better. I showed him photos of a drawn in hairline and he said this is very close to what he would have chosen, and expressed that I didn’t feel it would be a problem to achieve natural looking temple points. This was a big relief and I wondered if it could really be so easy, but I trusted his expertise and we were ready to go. He also mentioned he would implant about 60 graphs per cm2 because much more than that and the follicles would not get enough oxygen. He even mentioned that at one point he experimented with a friend and they did 120 graphs cm2 but that in the end half of the graphs died. Day 2 – Consultation and Hair Transplant Part 1 11:00 - Pickup from Hotel – Nothing to add here. 11:30 - Arrive at Hospital - The clinic is located at on the bottom floor of a hospital in Antalya. It consists of a few simple rooms: an office, general sitting room, and the operation room. My understanding is they were promised by the hospital larger wing to remodel and work and that has not panned out. So depending on if/when they move to Istanbul they should be in a new clinic in the near future. The space will seem a little humble to people who are used to fancy newly remodeled care center in the US, but it was clean and I didn’t think it anything seemed suspect or questionable. 11:45 - Met Nurses, Hair shaved and washed - I found the nurses to be very nice and friendly and felt it a shame I didn’t speak Turkish, or they any English. They were always professional. 12:00 - Graph Extraction begins – Two nurses commenced to remove give me surprisingly painful shots to the scalp and quickly deadened the pain of the following shots. Once numb, the extraction began and I could hear and slight feel the electronic punch going to work. There was rarely any pain and it was very minor. After completion my head was bandaged and I was feeling fine. 1:30pm – Lunch/Follicle Separation – As the nurses worked at separation and dividing up the follicles for the implantation I was fed a good lunch and I realized it was the moment I was most nervous about: drawing the hairline. I had been thinking about this for weeks and I was afraid I would be rushed or make a mistake in drawing the look I had carefully thought-out and practiced before drawing before numerous times before. Dr. Hakan arrived and drew the basic design in from memory of the image I had showed him the day before, and I studied it in the mirror. I felt it was a little more aggressive than I had planned so I made some slight adjustments. With multiple marker and lines it got a little muddy looking and I began to get concerned. To be honest I wish I had said, “ok, I’m going to go to the bathroom and I’ll be back in 30 min.” That way I could take my time drawing it, photograph it, and review the images to make sure I was happy. It just felt too rushed. I feel like if you are going to have a hairline for the next 50 years then take the extra 30 min to get it perfect and feel very comfortable. I feel that if I had had a better feel for how it looked I would have adjusted it to be a bit more conservative. 12:30pm – Transplant Begins – The needles came out and it was a go. The pain of the first 3-4 shots is not fun but after that the other shots were less noticeable. I watched Turkish music videos on the screen as they worked and there was nowaiting time. What struck me was the speed the procedure progressed. Dr. Hakan uses individual needles to implant the hair and the two nurses worked quickly to load them. The needles are marked as singles, doubles, or triples and are laid on a small table for Dr. Hakans easy reach. It was all the nurses could do to keep up with Dr. Hakans implanting and I have to admit I was surprised at the pace. It seemed rushed to me, but I always imagined it would be slow careful implantation of each follicle. So saying it was rushed probably isn’t fair. 1700 graphs were implanted in roughly 2 1/2hours. I remember reading from Dr. Lorenzo that he felt one of the biggest factors of success is to keep the graphs out of the body as little amount of time as possible. This put me more at ease about the speed things were progressing. 4:45pm – I was bandaged up, informed on what to do and not to do, and it was back to my hotel. The pain was manageable but sleeping was a bit of a challenge since I was still bleeding a bit and had to stay flat on my back. Day 3 – Transplant Part 2 9:00 am - Picked up from Hotel 9:30 am - Extraction begins by two nurses - Once again two nurses commence the extraction which begins with shots to numb the scalp. After the shots the extraction is essentially pain free. 11:30 am - Lunch Break as Nurses clean and divide graphs 1:45 pm - Transplant Resumes with Dr. Hakan – Transplant resumes with three nurses helping, two of them loading needle graph inserters with the follicles and one cleaning scalp as Dr. Hakan implants. It is quite the assembly line. Dr. Hakan doesn’t waste any time. As long as the result is good that is all that matters. Tugrul was on hand to ask Dr. Hakan any questions I might have (which were many) and Dr. Hakan was more than happy to explain things and answer questions as he worked. As the hair progressed he made some slight adjustments to the match the other side and I will say I wish he might have taken a bit more time to get it as close as possible. Again, in the end when the hair is grown this probably won’t matter much or even at all. But unfortunately I am such a visual perfectionist I asked him to make some alterations on a few occasions. He didn’t seem bothered and it appeared he was perhaps planning on them anyways. However, I think this may of caused the hairline to become a little more aggressive then I had planned or drawn as when things were made more symmetrical the hairline seems drop and get closer. 5:00 pm - Transplant Completed It felt good to have the transplant done. Now begins the “DO NOT TOUCH your head out of fear of damaging graphs” stage. Pain was fine and I never felt like I couldn’t function pretty much normally. Later that night, while looking closely at the hairline, I felt it was not quite as symmetrical as I would like to be. Wearing a bandage when drawing in the second half of the hairline made it difficult to establish were the temple are would tie into the sideburn and the result was this area was not very even. One was about 1/8 to ? inch higher which bothered me. I decided to talk to Dr. Hakan about it the next day. Day 4 – Hair washed, stressed over hairline Tugrul picked my up and we headed to the hospital to have the nurse’s show me how to wash my hair properly and to get care advice from Dr. Hakan. All I kept thinking was please don’t accidently pull any graphs, out but the washing went well enough. Next up was an overview of the medication I will need to be taking over the next days and weeks. Simple enough. It was than time to pay and I was VERY pleased when Tugrul explained that they’re policy is to not charge for graphs that exceeded the consultation estimation. So I ended paying for 3000 graphs when I had received about 3500! I have to say this was some great and very unexpected news. Who doesn’t like to save $1300??? I feel this is above and beyond and very generous. Charging me for the 3500 would have been perfectly fair and I was planning to pay it without any regrets or complaints. Time to ask Dr. Hakan about my hairline and my desire to have it touched up a bit to make it more symmetrical. He looked it over and said he thought it looked fine and that most hairlines are not symmetrical and it won’t be noticeable once it grows in. I was afraid he would say this and I got a little anxious. Tugrul knew that wasn’t what I wanted to hear and he said when we come back to wash again tomorrow he will talk to him about it again. We then drove to the mall and picked up the meds, and cream I needed. As we headed back to my hotel I expressed to Tugrul how I know that it is pretty minuscule but that it really did matter to me and I would like him to try and convey that to Dr. Hakan. He said he will talk to him again and it should be fine, and that the main goal was that I was happy. This eased my concerns. While eating dinner stress from the idea leaving Turkey not be completely happy with my hairline was really getting to me. I texted this to Tugrul and he responded that Dr. Hakans assistant Dr. Ayhan would be doing the minor touch ups around lunch time the next day. This was a great relief and I didn’t mind having Dr. Ayhan do it because I knew Dr. Hakan had another transplant and it was such a minor amount I wasn’t worried about the quality. Day 5 – Hairline Adjustment Dr. Ayhan picked me up at 11:30 and we headed to the hospital once more and Dr. Ayhan and I carefully measured the hairline and we drew in the small adjustments. We waited until Dr. Hakan was finished up on a fellow transplante, who I enjoyed meeting a few times over the last couple days, and after my hair had been washed one of the nurses and the room was cleaned and things were ready work began. I wasn’t too excited for more shots but I asked for it so it didn’t complain. The same experienced nurse did the extraction of about 100 singles follicles from the upper neck area, and Dr. Ayhan then implanted them. In about an hour it was done. I made sure to confirm he would be implanting them at the lower 10 degree angle since that was the angle Dr. Hakan said he used on temple work. Things looked pretty good and I was relieved to officially be done with the HT. Day 6 – Final Dr. Ayhan picked me up at 11:30 and we headed to the hospital once more and both Doctors looked over my scalp and seemed pleased. Dr, Hakan asked if I had any more questions and wanted to make sure I was happy. I said I was and we laughed when I told him I looked forward to seeing him again only me with Elvis-like hair.  Summery Overall I feel pretty good about the results and my experience. Everyone was kind to me and you can tell they are working to build a good reputation for westerners. I’m not sure how I would of done this without Tugrul. We became friends and he was fantastic to work with. Dr. Ayhan was very nice, helpful and informative. I think we will be hearing more of him in his own right in the future. Dr. Hakan is a good guy and I can’t complain about anything. I wish he was able to speak English because I would of liked to hear exactly what his thoughts were in his own words and I feel some things got lost in translation. Overall, it was more stressful than I had thought, but this is probably die to me being a perfectionist and wanting the hairline adjustment. To be honest I wonder if I have had realistic expectations. I’ve always been a bit of a risk taker and I’m afraid that the temples triangles might be a risk that comes back to bite me. I fear I may have gone with too aggressive of a hairline and that it may not look natural, which was my first and foremost goal. If I could change things I may of played it a bit more conservative with the temples triangles. But then again who knows how it will look when it’s all grown in and it may not look so extreme 9-12 months from now, plus my lighter hair my help in this area. I think managing expectations and being able to put what you need over what you want must be the propriety for any potential HT patient, and I’m not sure I was able to do that. Also, so much trust goes into the Doctor you choose. In end you are pretty much at their mercy when you sit in that operating chair and that can be scary. I hope Dr. Hakan is as good as I have heard both on this and other forums. Let the wait begin. I’m including photos or my original hairline, the hairline I had decided on, and then photos from the day of the HT operation and images from 1 week later.
  4. I have been taking .5mg of Avodart daily for about 5 months. It has made my existing hair thicker and grow much faster (but I had no problems with hairloss in any area but the temples). The side effects were noticeable for the first few months but have slowly gone away. My main problem is the mixed results I have received in the temples and frontal area. I endured a vigorous shedding period when first taking the medicine that subsided for a few months but has re-occurred the past month. I noticed that my temple hair was still falling out at the same clip it was prior to beginning the treatment. However, on my left temple the hair initially thickened and looks perfectly normal. It is not greasy, does not hurt, and I think I may have even grown some hair in the area, or at least stopped the shedding. However, the right temple has been a completely different story. I keep getting acne in the area and the shedding has not subsided. It appears to have receded much farther than the right side as well. I am worried because I cannot tell what one is the true effect of the drug. I want to continue use because the encouraging results on the left side and be optimistic that the right side will eventually catch up. Alternatively, I am worried that the left temple is merely an aberration and it will eventually regress. I was wondering if anyone else has taken avodart with encouraging results or actually lost temple hair. I know you need to give it a year, but I do not want to make my hairline worse than it already is because it is still somewhat bearable and not noticeable when I wear my hair down. Please let me know what you guys think. Thanks.
  5. I know this will take a while to read but I ask that you read in full if you want a better understanding of the HT process. I know my experience may vary from others, but at least you will be better informed of what to expect before, during, and after your HT. I have been a long time lurker on the forum, constantly reading peoples post about preventative treatments, suggestions of HT surgeons, and analyzing HT results from patients posted pics. I guess it is now my turn to give back to the community that has helped guide me in the right direction for my hair restoration needs. If you want to know a little more about my hair loss background please read my initial post here: http://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/eve/161402-dr-gabel-dr-hasson.html#post2270274 If you don’t want to read that I can sum it up rather quickly. No real family history of baldness, I started receding for the past 4 years, I had a bad experience + growth with one of the top FUE doctors on the site (let’s not get into that discussion please, it is what it is and I have moved on) . PLEASE share your comments about my experience/pics, and if you have any questions please ask. I want to make this as informative as possible for you and share my experience in detail because I know there is so much fear in getting a HT (specifically w/ FUT). Whenever something is permanent it takes a lot of time and guts to actually go through with it. I know for me I spent weeks and months at a time reading forums, analyzing before and after pictures. I am glad I did because research is key. I would not advise getting a procedure done until you have fully weighed all pros and cons (looking at family history of baldness etc.) Nor would I advise meeting only one HT surgeon. Do your research, meet with A LOT of docs, and talk with patients who have had procedures with those docs so you can hear about their personal experience. (A quick thank you to takingtheplunge, Spex, Bill, and othersyde for answering all of my questions. Othersyde, if it weren’t for you, I probably would not have gone through with the procedure so I thank you). So in my post today I will be talking to you about my HT that just took place this last week with Dr. Gabel. I was never even thinking about writing this experience on the forum mainly because I just wanted to get the procedure done, get my wanted hair back on my head, and move on with my life. But then I thought about how scared sh*tless (yes I will probably use this word more than once in this post) and how I would have liked someone to do the same. Secondly, I had such a positive experience w/ Dr. Gabel that I had the urge/want/need whatever you want to call it, to share my experience in full. What first impressed me about Dr. Gabel was that he meets with all of his potential clients in person. He actually fly’s to Seattle and I believe Idaho if I am not mistaken. To me this was really important because online consultations can be misleading due to lousy photographs as you can probably tell from my first post. I did a few online consultations with other coalition Dr’s on the forums and all of them were relatively in the same ballpark in terms of # of grafts so going into my consultation I had a good idea of what to expect. My first impression of Dr. Gabel was that he was thorough, conservative, and brutally honest. We talked about my family history of baldness, past procedures, current medications, and expectations so he could determine the best course of action. During the consultation never did I feel rushed so he could see the next client, nor did I feel he was trying to sell me on “X” number of graphs. I can definitely say he is more on the conservative side saying he thought I would only need around 1,000-1300 grafts. This number was a little disappointing to me as I was thinking more on the line of 1500 (which is what other HT surgeons estimated). I must note that I was totally set on FUE, because the thought of a linear scar on the back of my head scared me sh*tless and I figured I would lose the remainder of my hair stressing about the scar if I were to go that route. But we discussed the pros and cons of each procedure and seeing that I was most likely a bad candidate for FUE (previous procedure resulted in not so great results), FUT would be my only rational option if I were to get a procedure done. I too am a Doctor in the healthcare field and I know the importance of explaining EVERYTHING to your patients. Dr. Gabel did a very thorough job in this, checked my laxity, evaluated my donor area, and drew out a conservative hairline. He really took his time to look at the entire picture. (Sure enough I went home, did research, and found that typically (not always) FUT does give better yield on a more consistent basis) *I don’t want to get into a debate on what gets better yield, is a more traumatic procedure etc. etc. etc. nor do I want to start a debate on who’s the best HT Dr. I want to stay focused on the topic at hand which is my journey into the world of HT and my procedure with Dr. Gabel. The initial consultation lasted over an hour I would say I left there feeling pretty good about the whole thing and that I found the man to carry out my procedure. I guarantee that if you do take the time to meet with Dr. Gabel you will find that he is truly a class act. Even if you decide not to go with him for your HT, you will walk away saying that he is definitely a good human being. Over the next few weeks I weighed all options, evaluated the time I would need to take off to hide away, and ended up scheduling the procedure. Side note: Isn’t it funny how girls get boob jobs and flaunt them around town, but if a guy gets a HT, he feels the need to hide away so no one knows what he did? I’ll admit I’m definitely one of those guys. I don’t know if it’s an ego, pride, or masculinity thing, but I guess that’s the way it is. So as you can guess, I am hiding away in my far off cave, away from civilization, until all the evidence has subsided, writing this post. So I guess we can move forward to the week leading up to the procedure. Sure enough, I get sick on Tuesday (my procedure is Friday) and am scared to death that I may not be able to get this thing done. Most likely my immune system was comprised due to the thought of having a permanent scar on the back of my head along with being at work where people were sick. So doing the right thing I call Dr. Gabel’s office just to give him a heads up that the HT may not be happening. I’ll just put this out there now, Aileen is a saint. If you ever do get a HT with Dr. Gabel you will know exactly what I’m talking about. But anyways, Aileen calmed me down and was able to get Dr. Gabel on the phone to talk to me. Dr. Gabel said that if I’m too sick to come, no worries, we can postpone for a future date or cancel all together. He was very polite and sympathetic and just asked that I keep him updated so he would know whether or not to bring in his staff on Friday or not……..understandable. I take my vitamins, get some sleep and bam, feeling great the next day call Dr. Gabel up and the HT is back on. Day of the procedure I showed up at the office at 6:30a.m. and was greeted by two of his employees (I’m sorry I don’t remember everyone’s name!) The three of us went into a consultation room, went over the pre-procedure check list, took vitals, signed all the necessary papers, etc. Drinks and snacks were offered and at this point I felt comfortable, but still scared sh*tless. Dr. Gabel then came into the room, explained the day to me, and we went to work designing the hairline. Between me, two of his employees, and Dr. Gabel himself, we decided on a conservative hairline that we all agreed would look natural. This wasn’t something that was NOT done quickly mind you. I would say it took well over an hour, possibly an hour and a half until we were all in agreement. During this I could see the personality of Dr. Gabel come out. He is a true perfectionist. I mean it got to a point in where we were talking about millimeters! It was a little humorous watching Dr. Gabel stare at me so intensely, closing one eye, alternating to the other. Funny or not you could tell that he took pride in what he was doing and wanted it perfect. He also double checked the design with this device over my head. Dr. Gabel, maybe you can explain what that contrapment was? When you look at my hairline design from the pics you may say that we could have brought it down more or changed this or that but I was trying to be realistic and have a mature hairline + good density. The two most important aspects to me were density and an invisible scar. Dr. Gabel promised he would do his best in these regards but in the end it’s your physiology that determines how big the scar will be. I know that the key to a small scar is NO TENSION. Tension causes stretching resulting in a bigger scar. I must state again that my fear wasn’t the procedure necessarily, but the fear of having a stretched out scar making me look like a freak and everyone finding out my deep dark secret. I believe that Dr. Gabel did do a great job in getting primary closure using the double suture technique with trichophytic closure. I know there is a debate whether sutures or staples should be used but lets not turn this post into that debate either. The deep layer sutures were resorbable, the outer sutures were black silk I believe? He also sutured me up using running sutures. I don’t know if there is any advantage to this over interrupted or running interlocking etc. but I trust his judgment. (You can be the judge based on the pictures). So now that everything was signed, hairline designed, initial pictures taken, I was able to pop a valium. They said I could take two so naturally, I took the second. Side note about pictures: Dr. Gabel has an entire room dedicated to pictures. He uses consistent lighting in the room., “Markers” in the room that you stare at so you can get consistent angles for every photo session (front, side, back, etc.). So after personally seeing his photo room I know that his pictures are taken consistently and no alterations are being done, no messing with flash or any other “tricks” that people may use to enhance results. Back to the surgery: I walk to the operating room, I greet the rest of his staff (everyone is amazing by the way) and we get started. The injections don’t hurt that bad (thank you valium), and before you know it, the donor area is shaved, excised out, and I’m all sutured up. Instantly the team gets to work doing whatever it is they were doing to dissect the hairs from my ex-scalp. I believe there were 4 people under different microscopes? (correct me if I am wrong?) I could not believe the attention to detail these ladies had. They were focused, and I mean FOCUSED at doing whatever it was they were doing. While that was going on, Dr. Gabel got the rest of my scalp numb. I’m not going to lie to you. If you want temple work done you will really have to pay for that. The injections to numb the temple area suck. I mean suck. Valium cannot compete with temple injections. Temple injections trump Valium (paper-rock-scissors analogy) So let’s get away from temple injections. Dr. Gabel asked that I not talk during the first half of the procedure and to just relax and enjoy the music in the background. I understood and took no offense because it was a crucial part in the procedure. He was making the incision sites and needed to count the number of incisions per cm2 or something along those lines? That’s what I assume at least because I heard him counting to himself. Whatever it was he was doing he was in the zone. Every 30 mins to an hour everyone else updated Dr. Gabel on the number of 1s 2s 3s etc. that I had. He told me he needed this information to know exactly how many incision sites to make and what size to make them. Everyone had their sheets marking all this stuff down. His practice is a completely organized, well-oiled machine. During the entire procedure Dr. Gabel was by my side 90% of the time (this was another important aspect that helped me in my decision in choosing Dr. Gabel). He placed most of the grafts along with two of his auxiliaries. I really can’t explain how well everyone worked together as a team. I guess you would just have to see it. I mean his auxiliaries were looking through a microscope for hours at a time dissecting grafts. It was quite amazing if you ask me. I must add that time was not even a factor during the procedure. They were thinking we would be done by 4 or so. We ended up not finishing until 6-6:30 and not a single person tried to rush or get out of there on time for the Labor Day weekend. The reason for it taking so long was that the strip which they predicted would yield approximately 1500 grafts turned out to be 2157! This wasn’t a miscalculation on Dr. Gabels part, but I had an extremely high donor density (woohoo for me I guess). Dr. Gabel said that when calculating he had to factor in my previous FUE procedure, scar tissue resulting from this, etc. When I heard the number 2157 though I about sh*t myself though. I think Dr. Gabel may have been puzzled why I wasn’t ecstatic with such a high number. The reason being I had only budgeted for 1500 grafts. I didn’t say anything there but just went along with it (at the end of the procedure without me even asking he told me not to worry about the extra grafts. He said that we talked about 1500 the morning of the surgery and that’s all I would be charged for) Wow 657 grafts free of charge. I still don’t even know what to say about that………. speechless. During the entire day I got a good idea of who Dr. Gabel was as a person and these are the adjectives I came up with: Perfectionist, artistic, methodical, meticulous, and ethical. My opinion about Dr. Gabel is that he truly cares about the product that he puts out there. He is in the business for all the right reasons and not just for the money. You can see the pride and passion he takes in his work. Ok the day is over now but to top it off, not only did he buy me lunch, we went late so he bought me dinner as well. He told me to come by the next day for my one day cleaning if I was still in town. Night of surgery: To my surprise I was not in a lot of pain. What I typically tell MY patients to do after a surgery I perform is to take 1 tab of vicodin which has acetaminophen in it, but to also compound it with ibuprofen 600mg every 6 hours if the vicodin itself doesn’t stop the pain. I recommend for EVERYONE to do this. I was hardly in any discomfort at all. I was only worrying about dislodging my sutures which I had no basis for. It’s important to note that Ibuprofen is a better pain reliever and anti-inflammatory agent than vicodin. Combine them together and it works great for post op pain. Make sure you don’t exceed the recommended dose of acetaminophen or ibuprofen though or your kidneys and liver will suffer! Day after surgery and the next two days: So it’s Saturday on Labor Day weekend and Aileen and Dr. Gabel meet me at his office for my one day cleaning. People, wherever you get your HT done, stick around the next few days so the pros can clean everything up for you properly. I know I would have done it incorrectly if not shown how to properly do it. Side note again: Aileen you have the hands of an angel. She shampooed my hair, cleaned the grafts and I felt rejuvenated. She is truly a professional at what she does. I can’t speak highly enough about the staff that Dr. Gabel has put together. I know from experience that a well trained staff is crucial to run a quality practice. I ended up going there for cleanings/pictures on Sunday and Monday as well. Keep in mind this is Labor Day weekend! Overall I am very impressed with the whole process and am very thankful I went through with it. (again thank you othersyde for your encouragement and support). If any of you are wondering where I stayed, I stayed at the Econolodge for three days which is literally a block away from the clinic. It’s not this nicest place but good enough and CLEAN. It allowed for me to get some piece and quite, watch 3 day’s worth of television, and get some good old R and R. It’s cheap too by the way. If you mention Dr. Gabel’s name it comes out to $58 a night after taxes. Closing thoughts: Do I think Dr. Gabel is the best HT doctor out there? Who knows and I am definitely not one to make that accusation nor do I think anyone can. I can say my experience with him was fantastic though. Would I trust him to perform another procedure on my head again? Yes (I hope I will never need one though, no offense Dr. Gabel). Would I trust him with my friends and family? Yes. Would I recommend him to people who ask my opinion? Yes. Am I still scared about what my scar will look like in months to come? Yes. Was it better than my first HT experience? Yes, by a mile. Please note that I can only speak for the process that I just went through and not results. Only time will tell if the results will match the procedural experience. But I would assume great results come from a great/flawless procedure, so I expect nothing short of a fantastic result. And if it doesn’t turn out as planned I have faith that Dr. Gabel would make it right. What I want people to take away from this is that: 1) DO YOUR RESEARCH and find a reputable doc that you feel COMFORTABLE WITH! 2) Meet with your potential HT doctor IN PERSON (I know this is not always possible) 3) DON’T let travel be a factor in your decision 4) DON’T jump into a HT by letting someone prey on your insecurities. (this initially happened to me) Finally, I am awaiting to get my pictures from Dr. Gabel. Once I get them I will post them immediately. Once I do so I would love to hear all of your opinions on the work and what I should expect a year from now. Thanks!
  6. Hi there again everybody, it's been a while since my last post. I am almost totally satisfied with my current hair situation. It's been a year since my second surgery, and I think it's very good. However, I still feel there is a little bit of "naturalness" that my hair lacks, especially below the temple angle on the left side, and of course density is always in the back of my mind. Although I am no expert, I have done a lot of research and it seems that the only way to fix the kinds of concerns I have is with an FUE, since specific hairs may be picked for their qualities and placed in an area where they are desired. It's somewhat hard to explain and not very visible in photos, however, there is a certain quality that the transplanted hairs have the the native hairs do not, and I don't feel the line along which they meet is blended as well as I'd like. Does anybody have a suggestion of where I can go from here?
