6 Months Post-Op: Dr. Gabel 1,554 FUT


Recommended Posts

This is about 6 months (and a couple of days) post-op from my March 27, 2013 procedure... For background info and more detailed pics for comparison, check my previous couple of threads leading up to this one:

Alright. Things are not at peak growth yet obviously, but the 6-month mark is looking good!

 

Here are the dry pics:

And now for some wet pics... Here's a pic from 3 months post-op first, just to compare and contrast:

So yeah... Looking great so far, even wet - HUGE difference from the 3-month mark! It's thick enough that it almost doesn't even look like transplanted hair even when wet! I almost even favor the wet pics because of the massive recent increase in density, since wet pics are always the most brutally honest and punishing!

 

My only remaining aspiration for this current procedure is that the front of the widow's peak thickens up a bit more, which I think it will - my last HT looked its best at about 10 months and beyond. But right now I'm pretty happy with the way it's turning out! Dr. Gabel's artistry and precision is evident in the density and placement, I think.

 

I didn't bother to take any scar pics because it's completely invisible right now - mainly just because I need a haircut; I think I'm probably at a 5 or maybe even 6-grade right now, so there's really no point in taking pics of that anyway until I get it cut down to like, maybe a 4-grade or so.

 

So, whaddya think so far?

Othersyde, your hair looks really good. I think a side by side comparison pic would be great on your avatar like mine ;)

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

Othersyde can probably make a pretty cool GIF that flashes preop and post op.

Yeah I've kinda got the Eddie Munster going on lol (the widows peak came out even more pronounced than I thought it would...)

But I plan to rectify that in a future procedure by rounding out my hairline a lot now that the base-work and density is nailed down for good.

Very nice with an impressively moderate graft count. I love that hairline!

Wow thanks for posting such a well documented encounter! Looking great. I'm looking into Dr. Gabel....tell me, did you have any problems whatsoever? He seems to come highly recommended.

 

I honestly can't say I had any problems; the whole experience was really streamlined and professional. I didn't have any complications or hang-ups during either one of my two experiences there. When and if I have a third session, I'll be going back to Dr. Gabel :)

OT, if it is small enough, you can make an animated avatar, I have seen a guy with his before and after like that.

 

I was looking at your transplant, and I really think it is going to age well. It looks natural and great now, but imagine it salt and peppered and slicked back in 20 years with a sports coat, a cigar, and a glass of aged bourbon :) . Save some grafts for the back and I think that you will be golden.
