Went to the Derm Hair Clinic to have my first HT with Dr. Umar and staff in Redondo Beach, California.


4600 grafts in total. 500 from chest, rest from scalp + beard. At this time I do not have the breakdown between head and beard donor. Surgery took place over four days. Had to add a fourth day because of issues with extracting some of my donor hairs from side of head that were not straight.


The first half of the procedure was spent filling out my balding area in the crown using donor from beard and scalp, and the last two days on filling out my receding temples and lowering the hairline using donor from scalp and chest. My intention is to have about 10,000 grafts done in total and the plan with Dr. Umar is to add density for the next round.


This is a quick update of my progress, 4.5 months out. I allowed the clinic to publish the results, so I don't want to over document my results here until I am more sure if they intend to use my photos and video or not.

Do you have any post op pictures!


I haven't uploaded any photos other than the ones posted above. After four days of work, I can tell you there was plenty of grafts, ooze, and that my face became shaped like a football.
