Hello,

 

what?s your opinion about my donor?

7 weeks ago I had a surgery with only 1500 grafts, but now the donor seems to be quite thin for me. Could it be shock loss and could the density increase in the next weeks/months?

 

Thank you for your help!

Give it time, you may have suffered some minor shockloss. Was Keser your surgeon? FUE does thin out the donor but 7 weeks is quite early to determine exactly how much.

Yes, Dr. Keser was the surgeon. The front area looks good.

What?s your opinion about the donor directly after the surgery?

It looks quite bloody, doesn?t it?

Looks absolutely fine to me champ. FUE is not very invasive but your donor right after surgery looks quite tame and the work looks very neat. Keser is a great FUE surgeon man.

@ Mickey: Wow, it`s simply amazing how you always can judge just from pictures or very few information which surgeon the patient underwent his transplant with! You`re the champ!

 

I also have a 100% success rate when they name the Dr in their profile page:D


4,312 FUT grafts (7,676 hairs) with Ray Konior, MD - August 2013

1,145 FUE grafts (3,152 hairs) with Ray Konior, MD - August 2018

lol, didn`t see this. But would be spooky otherwise ;-)

 

Hehehehe I'm not that good champ ;) I can estimate some surgeons by the recipient though :) With the donor it's alot harder.

Yes, it appears that you sustained some level of shock and will grow back. What was you donor density level that your doctor advised you of before surgery?

 

Best wishes on your transformation. ;)

He uses a manual punch.

 

@Questionmark

 

Ja, ich bins :). Servus! Habe mir hier mehr Feedback erhofft als auf alopezie.de

 

@gillenator

 

We didn?t measure they density exactly before the surgery. But the assistant told me that it was below the average...

Thank you for the wishes :).

Without a doubt, that appears to be shockloss around the extraction sites.

    • Dredd, in your case medicines were mandatory because your androgenetic alopecia was miniaturizing also the donor area (it is a condition called DUPA and is more common than people think) and dr. Pekiner told you that many times. Not only you did not take Finasteride and Minoxidil as prescribed, you even started minoxidil on and off, that is worse than not taking it at all. You said you got Finasteride driven depression after 2 weeks of usage, which looks rather unlikely. You said you got side effects from Minoxidil and even from Xpecia that is a mild Saw Palmetto supplement. Dr. Pekiner also suspects you did not follow post surgery instructions, because you always behaved like you did not care, probably you were thinking that you just had to pay the money to the surgeon and get the results without being annoyed by medicines and post operative care. But the first month after the operation is the most important one. It is like a fat man not following post operative instructions after a liposuction and starting to eat pies and donuts and lift heavy weights the day after. Surgery doesn't work this way, you must follow and trust doctor instruction and advices, it is not like "this is your money doc, now I want the problem solved". At the end we have some suspects but we don't know exactly what happened, while you look so sure it was all dr. Pekiner's failure and like 2 weeks ago you started to feel the urge to inform the whole world.   Please don't worry about this Lixin. I also invite other dr. Pekiner's future patient not to fall prey of a free shooter only interested in destroying the clinic reputation. I will start posting all the clinic good cases in this forum as well, I just need a little time. Please check all the surgeries before and after both of Dredd's operations and you will see 3 perfect frontal dense packs and 1 norwood 6 reconstruction in 2 steps.   As I specified before, this case was not treated at an extreme density of more than 50 grafts per cm2, which is often called super dense pack. It was a "classic" high density of around 50 grafts per cm2. DHI method, that is basically a marketing term coined for incisions and implantations via implanter pens, shares the same philosophy of the stick and place technique used by dr. Pekiner, that is placing the graft immediately after opening the channel. Having said that, there are many other clinics, using different techniques, like lateral slit with custom blade made incisions, or placers instead of implanters, that can achieve great density all the same.
    • More than 12 months to start growing.  Body hair supposedly has different growth cycles.  Beard hair is different, thicker and should be placed back behind the hair line. 
    • There was a Bisanga case posted recently on the forum and the results looked great (especially given the guys starting point - quite phenomenal really). I believe Keser doesnt like using beard hair etc citing it doesn't look completely natural, while the results I've seen from Lorenzo are pretty good insofar as they offer patients some kind of improvement and conceal any issues. Rare to see many examples of it though. Surgeons seem to have vastly different approaches to it. Given fin has an effect on body hair I wonder if doctors request patients to stop taking the drug? I'd also be curious to know if different body hair works better on different regions of the scalp Good thread idea @Melvin-Moderator
    • Really? Just to START growing?
    • I've had arm, leg, chest and beard and they do grow.  Some of it took more than 12 months to start growing.
