Stingray,

 

Congratulations! Only three months out and you are already beginning the transformation. I can't wait to see what's in store for you at six months!

 

All the best,

Lokkin good man. Can you see any affect from the prp on native hair?

 

 

Levrais - to be honest I cannot tell. I feel my hair is looking good, especially for only 3 months, but I don't know if it is due to an improvement in native hair. Maybe

HEY JUST A QUICK QUESTION. oops sorry bout the caps lol. You say dr.Armani was a bad result so you went more conservative next time. Was it a bad result because you had a high amount of FUE transplanted which gives less chance of good growth?? And if you transplant less FUE theres more chance of a good result? Just wondering because i wanted a FUE megasession but might not now if theres less chance of good growth. Thanks.

I don't know if there is a correlation in size of session and growth rates for FUE.

 

However, I think it is very difficult for a doctor to do more than around 1500 or so FUE grafts in one day without risking damage to the grafts. If FUE is done carefully it is a slow laborious process for the docs and the techs and if you have too many grafts done it increases the chances of human error (either in transecting the grafts when they are extracted or damaging the grafts when they are being prepared and implanted) and it increases the amount of time that the grafts are out of the body.

I would think that you could probably do that amount safely over 3 days.

 

Bear in mind that I am just a patient so best to talk your concerns through with the doctors you are considering.

Here are my MONTH 5 pics. I am absolutely delighted. In fact the other day I was on a date with a pretty hot 27 year old. We were chatting about this and that and somehow the topic of Wayne Rooney came up and she mentioned his hair transplant. She then said to me:

 

"Stingray... How does a hairtransplant work?"

 

Now I, like the rest of you, know exactly how a hairtransplant works. I knew what type of procedure he had, where he had it, when he can expect to see results and how much it cost. However, as I had only just met this girl and didn't want to get into a whole HT discussion I just said...

 

"Ummm, I think they take hair from the back of your head and move it to the front"

 

To which hot girls replies:

 

"Well, I don't know why I am asking you, you have tons of hair"

 

Needless to say I could not have been a happier bloke at that precise moment. Unfortunately, things didn't work out with the girl but it didn't matter.

 

So here are my month 5 pics. The first 4 are dry. The 2nd 3 are wet.

And a brief horrible reminder of where I was before I went to Dr Bisanga at BHR...

So to clarify. I have had 2599 FUE grafts over 2 sessions with BHR since the above picture.

Great result! Did Dr. Armani provide any reason for why his transplant failed to grow? Clearly it wasn't "patient physiology", because Dr. Bisanga managed to do just fine with your physiology.

Thanks for the positive comments.

 

Dr Armani did not give a reason why I had such a poor yield from my first HT. Personally, it is my opinion, that his extraction method is flawed. It is too quick and the power tool is damaging to the scalp and the follicles resulting in poor growth and scarring. This is my opinion.

That's possible. Dr. Feller is always remindful of the fact that FUE grafts undergo far more trauma than FUT, even when the doctor is very careful. Out of curiosity though, how densely were you packed by Dr. Armani, and how densely did Dr. Bisanga plant?

I don't know the precise density but both docs transplanted about 2500 grafts each in a similar area. Virtually all of Dr Bisanga's grew and only about 30% of Dr Armani's grew.

Stingray,

 

I'm slowly working my way through some Dr Bisanga cases and this one cropped up.... Sounds a little juvenille but the first word that popped into my head when i saw the result from your first surgery with Bisanga was 'WOW!'....

 

I am hoping to get a consultation with Dr Bisanga later this month.

 

The Pics look amazing. The hairline looks dense, thick and strong.

 

I underwent a 1000 FUE in September and there is absolutely no comparison. I appreciate that every case is different and each person has their own individual hair characteristics and physiology, but this is a fabulous result....

 

I am starting to regain my faith in FUE having seen fine examples like this.

 

Can't wait to see updated pics of the second HT.....

 

Stingray, two quick questions if I may

 

1) Were all these grafts singles? (first surgery with Bisanga)

2) Did Dr Bisanga plant FUE grafts into the same area Armani worked on?

 

Having received 3 poor HTs to the hairline area I'm concerned whether FUE is the best choice for me in terms of yield, especially when considering that my next surgery (HT #4) will still require some work in the scar tissue from the previous 3 HTs.

 

Keep us posted mate,

Hi Jessie

 

Thanks for the kind comments.

 

To answer your questions:

 

1) All the grafts in my first HT with Dr Bisanga were not singles. The breakdown was as follows:

 

1 hair = 318

2 hair = 419

3 hair = 227

4 hair = 36

 

Total grafts = 1000

Total hairs = 1981

 

2) Dr Bisanga transplanted into the same area as Dr Armani during both HTs. He also went a little futher back on the 2nd HT to address the additional recession I had since my first HT with Dr Armani.

Here are my 6 month pics. I am very happy and things are still improving.

 

I hardly ever think about my hair now which is amazing.

 

The first two pics are towel dried straight out of the shower and the last 4 are styled with wax.

Jessie, the results from your 1000 graft fue and Stingray's 1000 graft fue don't really look that far off, do they? Btw, to be fair, the wet pics of Stingray are at 8.5 month's growth. Not sure what month Jessie's wet pics are, perhaps he can clarify.... Also, Jessie (according to Dr. Feller) experienced further native hairloss. One other fact to note is that Stingray started with grafts in his hairline that Armani "built" whereas Jessie's hairline was done from scratch.

 

And Stingray.... looking really good my man! Glad to see you rebounded so nicely from your Armani debacle. Congrats!

Stingray,

 

Excellent pics mate. The fact that you rarely think about your hair now is a success within itself.

 

Sorry that my pics have appeared in your thread mate, I never intended for us to get off topic. This is all about you. Hairthere is respectfully welcome to PM me if he has an interest in my case.

 

Stingray, I am slightly concerned about my donor area despite being told that it is excellent. I'm not too sure. Can I be awfully cheeky and have a peek of any donor area pics? If you don't want to publish these on the forum would you consider privately PMing these if poss?

 

Also, another quick question on density. Any idea?

 

Cheers mate, very impressed.

 

Jessie

    • Before the operation, you and the doctor can determine the planting plan. It is possible to plant 3,000 hair follicles and possibly 5,000 hair follicles. But how do you know that so many hair follicles have been planted?  If you actually plant a few hundred hair follicles or even thousands, you probably don't know?  So the question is coming. Is there a way to prove how many hair follicles I planted last?  Especially the manual FUE
    • Folks, Apologies for loosing track of this thread as I got occupied with other things in life. I would post some pictures soon. Almost 11 months have passed since my surgery . Everything is looking fine. My hair have grown well and has completely changed my front look. Only little downside I faced is thin donor on the back but I am fine with that considering how much of a difference it has made on my front look.  Now I think that it is time that I should start focusing on mid scalp and crown area and would schedule personal consultation with doctor  to see what are my options (BHT....May be if possible??). Please share if some of you came across certain threads related to body hair transplantation, and if that is a reliable option.  
    • Looks good. Next two months, but even next month are transformative. My hairs are still thin, but I'm hopeful they thicken, I don't know why they wouldn't. The hairline looks good, and it passes as natural, even with the shorter and thinner HT hairs.  Most people won't spend long enough looking at your hair to notice anything. Enjoy yourself out there and don't worry about it. Even if anything was suspected, passing it off as a bad haircut or even "that's just how my hair grows" is sufficient. I would be in shock if enough people approached you with questions for you to even waste time thinking of responses. Your hair looks good.
    • Looking back through the thread, I think your results look promising. You have new growth where there was none before. The growth you have is like my growth, very thin and curly. I too need to have it thicken up. I looked at myself in mirror (I'll try posting update tomorrow), and my hair looks very similar to yours. I see the area Bhatti worked on has more density, along with the new hairline. The issue you and I have is that the new density doesn't look good against the contrast with existing density. I recommend going to get a haircut like you had at 3 months, and especially thinning out the non-DHT prone crown (the toilet seat shaped area). It is the part that gets the most dense. I think that the two steps I would take is waiting for the thickening (not sure how long your or my case will take), and finding a flattering haircut.  I also started to thin (maybe fin shed, maybe I'm getting balder!) in my top+crown. So I gently push hair sideways. I'll try to explain tomorrow on my post. There's no issue with styling your hair to fit you. I see a lot of posts that essentially want care-free hair. They want to look good all the time from all angles. I just wanted to not be bald! If it takes a few seconds to a few minutes to accomplish a look you like, it is what it is. Again, I recommend modifying styling options. Without a haircut, your HT hair is at a disadvantage to the native highly-dense hair. If you don't want to cut it all down to a 3 month point, I recommend using thinning shears and reducing the amount your non-recipient hair "falls" on itself. Any additional perceived density on surrounding hair reduces perceived density on recipient hair site.
