Well I am a few days away from the 4 month mark. Below I have posted images that show it more styled (with product) and then pushed apart to expose the hair transplanted area.
i got back on fin/propecia the week after the transplant and no side effects as of yet, so hopefully all good there.
my doctor was the great dr gabl in Oregon.
I have realized the real hard work of having a hair transplant is the wait game months after the surgery.
Still a little anxious about growth. This could be because I haven’t cut my native hair since the shaving on surgery day and my native hair being thick.
I did my research with the surgery and went with a doctor at the top of his game but I didn’t really research amount of grafts.
when I googled my graft amounts after surgery I felt nervous that this amount wouldn’t give me the density and hairline required with my level of recession.
i made it known I wanted a good, straighter hairline that I could push back or comb into a part with good density.
Again, can definitely see new growth but I have to really push the front around to conceal the transplanted thin area.
I hear month 5 can be a big turning point for many people.
My "worst" day on both larger surgeries was the afternoon of the day following surgery. I am not sure about FUE post-op, but with FUT I felt like shit the afternoon of the next day after surgery. I was at the hotel and took some pain meds and sleep medicine and was basically fine the following day when I flew home. Of course every patient and size of surgery is different, but I agree with the others that there is no way I could have returned to work the day after surgery. I always took a week off, but I suppose if absolutely necessary I could have returned to desk job work 3-4 days after surgery.
