Attached some pics of my recent procedure with Dr Feriduni, im now 6 days post op. Photos include day of procedure and day 1. It was an amazing experience, couldnt be happier with the professionalism and dedication of the doctor and all his staff, they do unbelievable work. I got 4500 FUT, i dont know the exact break down of hairs just yet , i had average donor density and hair diameter but my laxity was great, ive been doing scalp massage exercises for 11 months before ( i had originally booked for march 2012 but had to cancel last minute) but i continued doing the exercises all year. the strip was 32cm long and averaged 2cm in width. im a norwood 5. this is procedure 1 of 2.

 

I dont know if the photos show this very well but i have some linear scaring( from an accident years ago) in my hairline, scalp and temple points, will be interesting to see how the grafts grow from these and the coverage i get over time. Will update as the year goes on.

The post-operative photographs look excellent! This will be a very nice result when fully matured. Look forward to seeing the final transformation.

7 Day update, days 2-5 were days to forget, swelling came down my face and i looked pretty scary, not in any pain just felt uncomfortable, thank god i flew home on day 1 after the procedure before the swelling started on my face!! Scabs are next on the agenda, hopefully they will fall off over the next few days, keeping the recipient area moist is crucial post op and im following Dr F's post op instruction pack to a tee.

Hi cuball35,

Do you men you flew home the day of the procedure? or the next morning?

I was wondering about when might be best to fly after a procedure. Was it hard to fly so soon after?

Hi Magnumpi

 

I flew home the evening after the procedure. I was sure glad i was home before that swelling came down my face. I looked very strange and it would have been embarrassing more than anything having to fly home looking like i did from day 2 to about day 5/6. ( the day of surgery being day 0, flew home on day 1, looked ridiculous from days 2-5/6 :eek:). So either fly home the next day or wait a week on location would be my advice.

 

I had a large Fut procedure and had no real pain flying home the day after. I was able to wear a bandana and when i was asked to remove it going through security i just pointed at my head and said 'operation!!' , they said fine and waved me through without getting me to take it off.

 

I can honestly say that the worst part of the whole thing was not being able to sleep properly for a few nights after, i just couldnt sleep lying on my back and it wears you out. I was expecting to be in a lot of physical pain but this wasnt the case at all, just felt uncomfortable and tired from lack of sleep. Started looking and feeling back to myself from day 7 and improved greatly each day after.

My experience was the same as Cueballs. I was thinking of staying a few extra days at the hotel but was glad I flew back the next day for the same reason.

 

Days 2-6 after the procedure I had an amazing amount of swelling, and became virtually unrecognisable. I would have got a lot of strange looks, but more importantly might not have got through passport control.

 

Flying home 24 hours after there was little swelling. It was the way to go for me.

Looking good cueball. A little bit of redness still but not surprising given the number of grafts. Other than that looks like you've just shaved down.

 

Seeing more and more patients not shedding hair in the recipient. Youre gonna look like a very different man in a few months!

Hi Slickers

 

I was expecting to have lost way more grafts at this stage, a lot came off while washing my hair during the 3rd week but ive noticed very few shedding since, i think some of the grafts have even started to grow but should i be worried that i havnt lost the majority at his stage? :confused:

@ Dannoxx, Dr Glenn Charles is a great surgeon and he's in Florida (not too sure how close to Tampa).

 

Separately, I suggest you start your own thread if you want responses.

2 month update: those 2 months have flown by, not a lot to report at this stage, im getting a lot of pimples but they go away after a few days on their own accord, i can see little hairs coming out of any pimple though which is all good!! theres one on the leftside of my hairline thats slow to go though. i think some of my grafts never shed and just started growing, its really hard to know, im new to all this and its still very early days. i get tingly sensations in the recipient area, dont know if thats the skin healing from the micro incisions or if its new hairs popping through, my scar is still fairly red and itchy, but my donor hair has it covered, not brave enough to shave it any tighter :eek: what you guys think so far? am i on track?

I think you are going to have an awesome result. Looks great! You are right on track and if you are already getting some growth, that is a plus since 2 months is early. I started to get growth from my first procedure at about 2.5 months. Typical time for new growth can be 3-4 months.

are you going back to address the crown? why wasnt that addressed when you had this HT done? seems like you have plenty of donor hair available.
