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.

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.

    • Hello, I have 2 options for FUE surgery, beginning of November with Dr Erkan Demirsoy in Istanbul (3500-4000 grafts), or Dr Khaled Meddeb in Tunis end of February (2500-3000 grafts). Price and travel is not a problem. I have a slight preference for Dr Meddeb but it's kind of annoying to wait for 6 months, plus that means my hair will be all ugly starting in spring and, I am afraid, for all summer. Would 3 and half more months make a difference? What do you guys think? Thanks in advance!
    • What you said makes complete sense!!!! That’s exactly how my doctor thinks. I just thought after 2 passes I would achieve my goal. I do have fine hair which does not help but on the other hand light hair and skin does help my donor area not looking to bad. I was kinda worried about taking another 2000 grafts out not sure what I would have left after that but hopefully it will be enough that even if I lose more I will have enough transplant to be content. 
    • I would not be surprised if, whomever has an Artas machine, uses it for marketing purposes only.  It does attract many people and-in a way- does advertise the idea that they are keeping with the times. Once there for consult, however, they will try to push something else...FUT, FUE or whatever technique they are using. I think most in the industry realize that science has a long way to go.  While I appreciate the fact the staff does not get tired, neither does the machine, this industry needs the human touch.  The doctor and the clinical staff can "see."  The machine can't.   There are a number of factors involved and I can gladly walk you through them if you wish.....
    • In the old days, when I first came into the industry the global idea involved leaving a separation in between grafts.  The concern was mainly grafts competing for blood supply. Thus, a patient would do a procedure and 4-12 months later he would return to fill in the gaps.  To have a full set of hair, 3 procedures of about the same number of grafts was required.  So, each procedure would do about 30% density.  Further, a front would take 1200 grafts, the top, (middle area), would take 1200 grafts, and the back area  would take 1200 grafts.  Thus, if we were to apply this same concept to you.... a case of about 2400 grafts would give you that third procedure, and - by definition - fuller density....but.... You seem to have a very conservative hairline.  So 2000-2200 grafts?  Like I've told patients in the past, do as many grafts as you can afford - based on whatever the recommendation of the doctor is. Something to keep in mind is elasticity.  I realize you've done FUE...But a couple of things to consider.  FUT is in play given you keep your hair on the lengthier side.  You've had no FUT before so your elasticity should be intact.  Typically the cost is less and you can always put FUE grafts on the scar in the future. I would at least, so you can discuss all your options, talk to the doctor and see what he says and recommends. Are you doing any medical therapy to help you retain the native stuff?  Remember, if you've lost - you will continue losing.  A shame to have to return multiple times to replace what you just lost.  
    • Quite a high number of grafts? R u going to post pics and ur story soon? Very curious
