3500 grafts with Dr. Panine

Recommended Posts

I am a 27 year old man and I've seen my hair thin over the past few years. I have a pretty strong peak, but what was behind started to thin. I knew I needed to get something done. I started taking Propecia, but wanted a more permanent solution.


So after researching doctors in the Chicago area for about a year I chose Dr. Panine. He is located in downtown and was a great fit for me. I decided to get a consultation and that is where I met Stuart and Dr. Panine. Both were extremely helpful and caring which was a great start.


I decided to shoot for a good amount of grafts. All in all I got just about 3500 grafts. I arrived at Dr. Panine's office at 9 am 12/27 and was greeted warmly by everyone. The entire staff was very courteous and made me feel very special.


Pain was very minimal. Of course the donor strip area had a little discomfort once it was sewn up again, but nothing bad. It was a long procedure. I ended up leaving just after midnight.


I am definitely eager for the results and will post periodically to show.

congrats on your procedure looks like very clean work

take extreme care with everything up until day 10 when the grafts become permanent, and looking forward to your updates

looks good. it is amazing how you still have a normal hair line before the procedure? am i correct in saying that is diffuse thinning?


I fall into that category too. It is pretty rare however.

Just had my stitches removed and crusting/scabbing also nice and cleaned. Everything looks real clean. Very happy with where I am today (even as neurotic as I am about my hair). Looking forward to seeing and sharing results soon. Thanks Dr. Panine and Stuart!
