Hair Transplant with Dr. Tejinder Bhatti. 1500 grafts by FUE to restore hairline

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Intro:

 

I am 32 years old and have been reading up on this forum for the past 5 years or so but have never posted . Now that i have gone through a HT procedure i would like to post my results for your opinions and will be updating from time to time.

 

I have always had a high forehead since childhood but noticed my hairline receding when i was around 20. I had been wanting to get a HT from the time i was 24 but waited it out since i it was still bearable to me and was not in a great hurry also i dont think that my hairloss was too much at the time and it has been receding very slowly.

I have never taken any medicines or ointments to stop hair loss.

 

Anyway after years of reading up on different forums online and doing my research i finally narrowed down to Dr. Tejinder Bhatti at Darling Buds clinic and booked an appointment for the 3rd of February 2016 which is today as i am writing this post from my hotel room after the surgery!

 

Meeting with Dr Bhatti :

 

On meeting Dr Bhatti the evening prior to surgery for consultation he recommended that i go for between 1200-1300 grafts but on my insistence he agreed for 1500 since i think my hairloss rate is acceptable for my age at 32 and wanted the lowest hairline for my HT.

 

I will be going in for my Post procedure wash tomorrow morning and then heading back to delhi in the afternoon .

 

I will keep posting updates on my result so please feel free to give your opinions and any questions u might have!

So went to the clinic today for the post surgery wash and got my bandages changed from the donor site and hair washed.

 

Dr Bhatti came and he immediately noticed that i had fallen asleep on my left side and he said that the grafts on the left side had been pressed in !!

 

Please advise as i fell asleep on day 1 night after the HT and am worried now if the grafts which were pressed on will be ok in future.

Congratulations on your recent hair transplant and thanks for taking the time to share the details of your experience.

 

Regarding sleeping on your grafts, what was Dr. Bhatti's opinion? How does he feel the grafts will be affected?

Hi David .. Dr Bhatti said that they should be ok but that they were pressed in although he didn't seem too happy about it naturally I guess!

 

I just wish I knew about a travel pillow before since I think they will be an ideal solution especially for frontal transplants !

 

I can't seem to find any answers online related to my situation please advise since i am still anxious !!

Agree on the travel pillow bit. That is something the clinics should inform the patients upfront to avoid such situations.

 

The good part is that they got pressed inside and not sideways/brushed out. Did it bleed a lot from the same place ?

If it did not bleed then fingers crossed you should be ok.

 

Make sure you take good care from here on...there are a lot of things you'll need to be careful about at least for the first 2-3 months.

 

All the best!

Great! I agree...still get a travel pillow and yes its not common knowledge.

If there was no blood and no grafts on the pillow and bed sheet then be rest assured and draw a lot of courage to go through the ugly duckling phase. But like all things it will pass too :)

Looks quite messy though. I wonder why don't some guys opt to shave their head before op. Uneven hair is definitely tough to maintain.

Actually thinking of shaving the entire donor area off now since it is very messy, what do u guys think when can I go ahead and do it?

no sure why Dr Bhatti shaved the area like that, was it some kind of request to do so... never seen him harvest like that before

Not sure what you mean .. my hair is all clotted up at the donor area since it was a little long and not shaved!

I'm assuming you opted for the no shave FUE, it does look messy, but I think it's cause your hair was either greasy or wet, I'm sure I'm two weeks it will look untouched.

@ vega..... the no shave FUE photos ive seen plus I also went no shave last time, Dr Bhatti shaves like a bowl haircut, yours just looks different thats all. i think the no shave FUE is kind of pointless, by the time the 2 week period is up, your hair looks so uneven, and the few people off this forum who've also had it end up shaving at 2-3 week period anyway, so if anyone is thinking of the no shave FUE, don't bother, just get it all off the day of the HT, I know ended up suffering from scalp dandruff and God knows what else due to not having a proper shower and wash for 14days. i suspect it added to my shockloss in the non transplanted areas.

 

the no shave FUE is only recommended to follow in the FUT footsteps, which makes no sense to me.

Hi i was wondering what happens to the rest of your hair that im assuming will continue balding?.. after getting a great new hairline does the rest of the hair keep falling out leaving you with a bald middle and a great fringe? or is there some preventative taken whilst the surgery is done like filling in those areas too? Thanks

Well preventive medications are prescribed prior to Hair Transplant.

You need to be on Finasteride and Minoxidil for few years to stabilize your hairloss.

    • 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
    • Folks, 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.  
    • Looks good. Next two months, but even next month are transformative. My hairs are still thin, but I'm hopeful they thicken, I don't know why they wouldn't. The hairline looks good, and it passes as natural, even with the shorter and thinner HT hairs.  Most people won't spend long enough looking at your hair to notice anything. Enjoy yourself out there and don't worry about it. Even if anything was suspected, passing it off as a bad haircut or even "that's just how my hair grows" is sufficient. I would be in shock if enough people approached you with questions for you to even waste time thinking of responses. Your hair looks good.
    • Looking back through the thread, I think your results look promising. You have new growth where there was none before. The growth you have is like my growth, very thin and curly. I too need to have it thicken up. I looked at myself in mirror (I'll try posting update tomorrow), and my hair looks very similar to yours. I see the area Bhatti worked on has more density, along with the new hairline. The issue you and I have is that the new density doesn't look good against the contrast with existing density. I recommend going to get a haircut like you had at 3 months, and especially thinning out the non-DHT prone crown (the toilet seat shaped area). It is the part that gets the most dense. I think that the two steps I would take is waiting for the thickening (not sure how long your or my case will take), and finding a flattering haircut.  I also started to thin (maybe fin shed, maybe I'm getting balder!) in my top+crown. So I gently push hair sideways. I'll try to explain tomorrow on my post. There's no issue with styling your hair to fit you. I see a lot of posts that essentially want care-free hair. They want to look good all the time from all angles. I just wanted to not be bald! If it takes a few seconds to a few minutes to accomplish a look you like, it is what it is. Again, I recommend modifying styling options. Without a haircut, your HT hair is at a disadvantage to the native highly-dense hair. If you don't want to cut it all down to a 3 month point, I recommend using thinning shears and reducing the amount your non-recipient hair "falls" on itself. Any additional perceived density on surrounding hair reduces perceived density on recipient hair site.
