Afternoon ALL my HT folks,

I wanted to post some 6 month pre-op FUT updates that I had done with Dr. Cooley on 12/8/15. I have tried to keep this as up to date and consistent as possible to try and help out any folks thinking about making a decision on getting a HT.

I TOOK THESE IN AS HARSH A LIGHT AS POSSIBLE. In my case that is the Louisiana sun cooking you alive at about 90 with no mercy!!

 

I also took one shot in doors so the difference in lighting on hair density can be shown. I am honestly ecstatic with my results so far as I was blessed, thanks to my mom, with very fine blonde hair.

My friends and family at just 6 months can't believe the difference and how much younger I look. I am very open with people about my procedure and if anyone has questions feel free to ask. Cooley is an amazing surgeon, and I owe him and his staff so much thanks. As for the FUT scar it is a non issue, no one can see it. I even try pointing it out to people and they still can't see it. One pic looks like you can see it on the side, but I honestly didn't comb my hair so what ya see is what ya get. Also the sides are a number 2.5 clipper!!!!! I went short and wanted to see what I can get away with for you guys who are looking at FUT. However, I am a good healer and have always been that way with cuts, scraps and surgical procedures.

 

Now Pictures!!!!

It doesn't get any more natural than that. Thanks for the outdoor shots. More people should take photos outdoors like this to keep it real. Great job!

Great photos and very natural result. Congratulations man.

 

Some Docs should really learn a thing or two from you when it comes to taking pictures.

This is really the best thay HT has to offer. Taking a guy that looks pretty bald, happy with a conservative hairline, and no longer looking bald with a very natural look. This procedure will "age" very well and you should have zero concerns on looking surgical due to lack of grafts available.

 

 

Excellent work.

Those are some great honest pictures. It's a really nice result. I met with doctor Cooley about a month ago and was really impressed with him. You made a wise choice.

Quick update, traveling for work and a few coworkers I haven't seen in 6months couldn't stop asking about my hair and how young I look now. My thinning in the front aged me beyond my years. I am only 6 months out and can't wait to see the one year result! Thanks to Cooley and The Gang!

7 MONTH UPDATE

Afternoon all,

Here are my 7 month photos for an update. The progress has been amazing so far and can not wait for the final result in December this year, but I will keep the updates coming monthly. As always I took these in DIRECT sunlight as harsh a condition as I can and one hairline photo in my house in what I would call 'normal" lighting. For your enjoyment here they are!!! Cooley is truly an artist!

8 MONTH UPDATE!!!!

Hey Guys,

As I have been trying to do, I am posting some 8 month update photos. I am a little late this time because I honestly don't think about my hair much anymore. I could not be happier with my results and the worry of my thinning hair has truly begun to completely slip my mind these days. I know I still have a ways to go till FULL results but I am so happy and grateful to Dr. Cooley and his staff.

As always I tried to take these photos in OVERLY HARSH light to try and show as true and clear a result as I can. In normal lighting my friends make comments about how thick my hair looks compared to what I use to be rocking less than a year ago. I honestly can say I look atlas 5 years younger.

Here ya go with some updated pics! Side note, the sides are at a 3.5 buzz cut.

I Haven't got to say this but you already know that Dr Cooley is a class act to follow, I would say he is one of the most consistent Drs in the USA.

so this great result you have don't really surprise me in the least.

 

More so well done to you for your posting excellent pictures of your jouney & myself won't hold it against you in not posting more of your journey on a regular basis ha ha, as what you say you don't think about your hairloss like you did right?

So why not enjoy your life as all this MPB been a bit of a burden to you for some time,....again go out & enjoy ya life congratulations well happy for you and well done Dr Cooley as this is what I expect from you sir.

Sorry guys and gals, I got a little behind on the updates as I no longer really think about my hair!! Thanks Dr. Cooley!! I had a strip procedure and I cut my hair down to a number 2 on sides and about an inch on top for all ya'll to see and this is how I tend to wear it now. So everyone who is terrified of the strip procedure should take time to research as much as possible. However, I am a good healer with minimal scarring not to take away from the skill of Dr. Cooley at all.

I took these photos outside in very harsh light to try and be as honest and upfront with my results as possible as I hate the "indoor darker lighting" that is used in a lot of after photos. These photos look overly harsh and not what my hair looks like in a normal setting but I am once again going for absolute clarity for anyone looking to make this decision to have this procedure done. I will attach one photo that is from an indoor front hairline shot to compare to the outside shot.

Here ya GO!
