FUT 3185 with Dr. Rahal - day after pics

Recommended Posts

24 hours after 3185 grafts into my frontal third.

 

My first HT, so anybody with "experienced eyes," I'd love your feedback on the pics... First pic is pre-op for comparative purposes

So many grafts densly packed by the hairline king into a small area - you just know that this result is going to be killer. Congrats buddy! Love how Rahal didn't even have to extend the strip further to the front.

It looks good you nothing to worry about from what I see here. Tight pack in of the hair grafts and the donor area looks good to me. You should look excellent in a few months.

I need to thank mav et al for cursing me out on my first post -- I was gonna go to Ziering 2 miles away from where I live in southern CA for 1400 FUE (same area).

 

Dumb luck I stumbled across this forum 2 weeks before Ziering op. Ask me if I EVER beat myself up for losing my $1000 deposit!

That is so many grafts in a small area - going to look great man.

 

With your age and it looking like you wont need another HT for many years - if ever - I am curious why you decided FUT v FUE. You look quite dense in the back half, sides, and crown as best as one can tell with the shorter hair with the lighting.

NW 5A to 6.

 

Docs whose results I am most consistently impressed with: Konior, Cooley (FUT), Hasson (FUT), Diep (FUE) (yeah I like the zig zag).

Lovely to fly home looking like elephant man. How long til swelling around eyes goes away, once it starts? And can you guys please tell me to relax about this very loose fitting Rahal hat they gave me?

Yes all the Rahal patients have that hat so its typical.

 

I iced my forehead a lot but neglected under my eyes so I didnt have much swelling at the top of head but puffed up under my eyes and even had some yellow skin as it was like I was in a fight. Then it actually moved all the way down to my jowels for a day or two. It should all clear up by day 7. Just keep icing.

Please feel free to contact Kamila if you have any questions - she's always available to help as your personal Patient Care Coordinator.

 

Look forward to hearing more updates from you in the future!

Day 6 (pic attached) -- healing very well. Following Dr. Rahal's post op instructions to the tee.

 

Got some info back today from Kamila, my personal patient care provider.

 

Graft Count:

 

Total Grafts: 3185

Total Hairs: 6600

 

1's: 499

2's: 2016

3's: 611

4's: 59

 

Size of donor area in back of my head: 28.0cm2

 

---------

Density Numbers:

 

3185 grafts transplanted to an overall area (frontal third / hairline [zone 1], going mainly around my forelock but some inside too to combat any potential permanent shock loss perhaps?) of 49cm2, for an overall density of 51 grafts/cm2

 

---------

In the "money area" :-) ----> remembering my pre-op pics with the frontal forelock...

 

-- the right side of my hairline is 7cm2, and Dr. Rahal used 425 grafts there, resulting in a density of 60 grafts/cm2.

 

-- the left side of my hairline is 5cm2, and 300 grafts were placed there for a density of 60 grafts/cm2

 

 

 

As I've mentioned earlier, Dr. Rahal referred to my hair as being "very fine" caliber, so we shall see. To be honest, I've only been looking at my hair when spraying it with ATP and while cleaning it. I've learned on here to just leave it be.

 

i'll post a 1 month update, then nothing until 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, etc....

 

---

Would love to hear from any "fine caliber" guys who've managed to get good results with the premier doctors... Any feedback on these numbers would be nice.

 

(and yes i realize my mid-scalp is miniaturizing!! Ugh, but I've been on 1mg finasteride from age 24 until now (41) so perhaps i'll be heading back to butt-ass-freezing Ottowa in a few years...

Grainy pic, but some lingering redness. Skin is smooth and healthy. Hair fell out around week 3-4. Today is one month and I look a bit worse than pre-op, because frontal forelock (natural hair) is having trouble keeping up with the rest of my natural hair.

 

This is because forelock was in high trauma surgical area, right? Anybody know?.... (Forelock was strong w little to no miniaturation pre-op)

Yup, sounds normal. My sides grew much faster than the existing hair in the recepient area with some shock loss occurring as well. I'm almost 3 months post-op now and only just starting to look the same as I did pre-op. You are officially in the ugly duckling phase my friend

Today is 2 months, 25 days since HT. I'd say native forelock only 30-50% back. But you guys tell me. 3 pics attached.
