i desperately need some help, hopefully a respected surgeon can help me in this matter, or someone who experienced what i do now. . 9 months ago i had my second HT.. 2200 grafts just the frontal area. The first one i had 2,5 years ago, that one failed because my transplants where falling out after 7 , 8 months ago untill the point my hair situation was almost worse then before the hair restoration. I blamed it on the surgeon at that time. He was ignorant of possible causes. I figured it was poorly done / bad luck and had another surgery like 9 months ago, some 1000 grafts to restore the frontal area. With another surgeon. Much to my distress i ve noticed my transplanted hair is thinning again! The rest of my head is ok, maybe a bit of shedding but nothing disturbing. After some decent growth for about 7 months its rapidly falling out again. My current surgeon is fague about the causes, sais its probably stress related and saying i should get propecia. Now he is ignoring me after i reached out to him again that my situationnis worsening. Really frustrating!
the thing is, i am wondering if its me. Could it be a syrong form of Aga in the recipient area? Could it be hormonal? I do suffer from chronic fatigue due to a burnout. I got this for 2 years now unfortunately. Can that be the cause? I am eating healthy , excercise otherwise.
to sum up: transplants are falling out again for the second time after 7 or 8 months of growth. Please help.
Normally one of the technicians stands next to the Doc/tech with a hand held tally clicker, or whatever they use, and counts every time he/she makes an incision. The same applies with extraction process I think. So this should tally up with the number of grafts previously extracted. Obviously if the Doc is using the implanter pen method, then as long as there are no grafts left in the Petri dishes, you’re pretty much guaranteed that all the grafts have been planted.😂👍
Hope this helps.
Before the operation, you and the doctor can determine the planting plan. It is possible to plant 3,000 hair follicles and possibly 5,000 hair follicles. But how do you know that so many hair follicles have been planted? If you actually plant a few hundred hair follicles or even thousands, you probably don't know? So the question is coming. Is there a way to prove how many hair follicles I planted last? Especially the manual FUE
Apologies for loosing track of this thread as I got occupied with other things in life. I would post some pictures soon.
Almost 11 months have passed since my surgery . Everything is looking fine. My hair have grown well and has completely changed my front look. Only little downside I faced is thin donor on the back but I am fine with that considering how much of a difference it has made on my front look.
Now I think that it is time that I should start focusing on mid scalp and crown area and would schedule personal consultation with doctor to see what are my options (BHT....May be if possible??).
Please share if some of you came across certain threads related to body hair transplantation, and if that is a reliable option.
