Raymond Konior, MD - 4,320 FUT Grafts - August 2013

Recommended Posts

Great result! How many grafts/hairs did you get? I had 3988 grafts and being a Norwood 5, doc had to try to get all the way back to the crown, so I don't exoect your appearance of density. I have a long way to go before I see results...I am on Day 12!

 

I happen to know Since21. He had 3500 grafts. Not sure how many hairs that was but 1.8 per graft rings a bell

 

Incredible results! Just read through this whole thread and very impressive. I am curious if you know how many grafts/hairs were used for your temples and temple peaks? Thanks.

 

Cheers.

It was about 300 in total.

3,452 grafts

1211 singles

1804 two's

437 three's

 

I'm approaching the one year mark now. Happy with the result. It's getting to the point where I really don't think about it that much anymore. Hard to believe considering how much I obsessed over it in the first several months following the surgery. As others on here have said, you just get on with life and move on.

Hi Matt

Your hair looks top notch. Good for you. This may be a silly question but here I go..

I plan on staying 5-6 days after surgery with the Dr Konior. What are the best hats to wear so not to disrupt the grafts and also is it wise to do a little sightseeing after say the 2nd or 3rd day after surgery or is it best sit tight in the hotel.. Also any thoughts on my own hair situation.

Thanks

Try a cheap hat from a supermarket. Anything that feels too big but can be adjusted tighter as required.

 

I looked at your pictures and you seem in better shape than most. I would just let the doc draw the best hairline he thinks and do his stuff. I'd suggest leaving the crown alone if possible unless you have an amazing donor supply. It can only get bigger over the next 20 years, even with Fin.

 

There is not really anything to see near the office and forget about trying to use public transport to get into central Chicago - near impossible! I doubt you will want to do any sightseeing. Swelling will be worst from days 3-5 but you should be ok to fly back on 5-6.

This is one of, if not the, best result I have seen. Thank you for documenting your journey so thoroughly, Matt. If I decide to go the surgical route in the future Dr. Konior will be at the top of my wish list.

I actually met Matt in person (not sure if he remembers) back when I had my consultation in probably November (he must have flew in to show his progress) and his hair was as amazing in person as it is on these pics.

Thanks Matt,

Yes, it was actually the beginning of September and I do recall.

Matt, you are right....I forgot I had an initial consultation with Tom back in September and then one in November with the doctor himself.

Hi, amazing result, congrats! I was wondering why you take propecia just twice a week? Have you seen any documentation for the effectiveness of taking it like this?

Hey Matt,

 

Question: can you say at which month out did you feel you stopped noticing any improvements to your hairline?

Side effects (mild headache), so I take it in the evening and sleep through it. I'm comfortable with taking this amount and accept I may need crown work in 5-10 years.

 

No formal documentation but an article by Dr Cooley a while ago said it may be quite effective. He said something similar in a posting a few weeks ago.

 

Hey Matt,

About 10 months the full density seemed to be there.

18 months yesterday.

 

I'm embracing the salt and pepper look nowadays.

 

Will post one more set at 24 months if I think anything looks different.

I'm really digging the salt and pepper look. I looked at some before and after shots of me recently and can not believe how much grey has come in in the last 30 months.

Awesome Matt.


2 poor unsatisfactory hair transplants performed in the UK.

 

Based on vast research and meeting patients, I travelled to see Dr Feller in New York to get repaired.
