3000 FUT with Dr.Arocha 1/9/14


Recommended Posts

  • Senior Member

It took me 6 years to finally decide to continue my journey to restore my NW 5A.So yesterday in Houston Dr. Arocha and his team added appx 3026 FUT( 5634 total hairs),to add density to my hairline and midsection.The procedure was easy comfortable and pretty much painfree. My plan is to continue to take my fin and return for my crown. Now its my turn to take care of these babies and let them do their thing in a few months after the doldrums.

 

So,once again,I'll try to post pictures.Please feel free to respond,I'd sure like to hear from you guys,the experts

Thanks Yaz, its great to get that procedure done early for the new year.Sometimes u want to hear from others who are and have gone through this.I like the fact we can openly discuss any issues that may arise.Also its nice to get encouragement.In the past few days I tried to start a topic and share my experience and was surprised at how many people viewed it and zero responses.So I tried to ad pictures only to find out none could view them :0.Then I thought well maybe I have it in the wrong topic.Now I cant figure out how to delete the other posts, so I guess I'll just leave it at that.I just think folks may want to wait until we post photos of growth before they want to respond, which I can understand.

I understand where your coming from. I personally feel this forum is a great place to ask for advice and guidance if one is asking for it. There are many experienced posters and patients on here, so it is a nice feeling when someone replies. I think you won't be able to delete the other threads, the moderators can only do that. Trying asking David or Blake? Photographs wise; you won't be able to upload from a mobile phone. I found my iPhone photos don't go through but from my laptop they do. You be fine, I am going through the same boat. Just hit 14 weeks post op and waiting for the hairs to pop out but it doesn't work like that! Patience, patience and more patience!

Hey Scott, how are you feeling?

 

Hi Since21,

 

At day 5 I am actually feeling pretty good,If I could only get these dern sutures removed right this minute I would be even better,lol

 

I am very happy with my surgery. Dr.Arocha and his team placed those grafts everywhere where I remember I needed them along my frontal zone and I feel the hairline will look fantastic .Got so tired of wearing the caesar cut.Hopefully everything will grow out like it should.But for now,its just tight along the donor area and still a bit sore when I dont ice it up a few times a day.

 

Thanks for asking ,

 

Scott

Just 2 months out myself, I remember that feeling well. I was still taking Advil quite a bit for the first few weeks. My scalp still feels a little tight but it's getting better and there's still some numbness in areas. But I noticed an improvement in feeling in the past couple of days. It's a journey. PM me if you hit a rough patch or have any questions.
