Cheers appreciate it.
I spoke to Dr Koray about this and apparently it’s all to do with the angle the incision is made at. He uses his lateral technique and he explained you can achieve the highest density by doing this. I’m not the first to add density to a previous transplant.
Whilst on the subject they used a punch of 0.6 this time for extractions and I was told I should be able to maintain my short back and sides that I usually have.

So maybe don’t have as much sedation as I slept through last night and woke up without my neck pillow on and I had lost a graft on my normal pillow and there was some blood as well. I was annoyed about it but as Asmed explained to me in the grand scheme of things one graft isn’t the end of the world. Does the highlight the importance of sleeping upright though.
No pain whatsoever and haven’t had to take any pain killers. Do have some swelling appearing but am flying home this afternoon so hopefully I will be home before it gets any worse.
Been into Asmed to say goodbye and have my first wash. They have changed the foam part of washing your hair and replaced it with Bethanapol which is a lotion.
I’m not going to update quite as often as I did previously but will update every week to start with and then once a month thereafter.
Here are are some photos now the bandaging has been removed and the area cleaned.
