I have been reading these forums for many years. I would like to thank everyone who has contributed for helping me to make my decision about my HT surgery. I hope that my website will be as helpful to others as many have been to me.


I underwent surgery with Dr. Rahal on October 10, 2013. I am now one week post-op after receiving 3774 grafts via FUT. I am looking forward to sharing this experience with anyone who is interested. Please click the link in my signature to visit my hair loss website.

Thanks for the replies. I am very excited about what is ahead and am very satisfied so far with what has been done.


I got my stitches out today, a little discomfort but nothing bad at all. Here are some updated photos.


I have lost quite a few hairs already from my first shower and also from massaging away some of the scabs. Unfortunate but I knew coming in that this is how it goes.


The detail is also hard to see with my camera. The density looks a lot better in person. I will try to take some higher quality photos soon so you can get a better idea of what it looks like.

Things are going pretty well for me. Ive lost the majority of my grafted hairs but I have many that are refusing to fall out. Who knows, maybe they took root but I wont be surprised if they all fall out. I started using rogaine at the two week mark. It gives my head a nice tingling sensation.


The scar is better than I could have hoped for. I had a haircut down to a # 2 two weeks ago and the scar is barely visible. I took the best pictures that I could by myself with my phone.


There is still some soreness in the scar area but nothing bad at all. Recipient area is still quite numb but I can tell that a lot of the sensation is coming back. This month has flown by and now I have to settle in and look ugly for a few months, but I cant wait to see what happens.


Until next time, here are some pictures.
