"Hair Transplant Patient of the Week:" BonkerStonker's 7,460 FUT


Recommended Posts

Beginning this week, the Hair Transplant Network will be featuring the "Hair Transplant Patient of the Week."

 

Each week, we will select and present impressive results posted by patients from various sections of our website. This includes hair loss blogs, photo albums and videos from our social community, patient websites, and discussion forum topics started by patient members.

 

Because we are a patient-driven community, we encourage all members to help us select these cases by commenting on all new blogs, photo albums, and results and recommending cases for presentation each week.

 

This week, we've selected "BonkerStonker" - a long-time and dedicated member who underwent two follicular unit hair transplant procedures totaling 7,460 grafts with Dr. Victor Hasson. His 6 month post-operative results demonstrate a very complete and aesthetically pleasing restoration!

 

Below is a thread sharing BonkerStonker's ongoing progress and his Hair Loss Blog:

 

7,460 Grafts with Dr. Hasson Over Two Sessions (BonkerStonker promised some 8 month update photographs in the near future in this thread)

 

BonkerStonker's Hair Loss Blog

 

Please welcome me in congratulating BonkerStonker on his excellent hair restoration with Dr. Hasson. I know his case isn't exactly "new," but he's done an excellent job sharing his progress and has been an excellent contributor to this forum.

 

You are encouraged to provide your input below.

 

Best wishes,

Wow I'm honoured Blake thanks for your kind words and what a great idea you have here!

 

Thanks for everyone's comments and I appreciate all the help this site and it's members have given me.

 

One thing I want to say is how much a ht changes your life I've got my swagger back and i feel as if I can go on to do anything, I've always been involved in drama and acting but didn't have the confidence to do auditions or go for jobs but in the last 3 months I've had 2 acting jobs one being a movie for release in 2013 with some famous American actors and some of the very best Britain has to offer I would never ever of thought this possible 3 years ago.

Cheers chaps! My 8 month pictures are now on my blog!

 

I was gonna make a new thread but figured best not block up the forum with too many threads relating to me so here we are.

 

I never wear my hair as it is in the pictures as i have very frizzy curly hair because i'm quarter jamaican so it requires a lot of effort with product and wax to look cool ha but i wanted my pictures to be dry and clean so they show reality of thick and thin as it grew over the months.

Bonkerstonker! :D
