Dr Koray Erdogan 5019 FUE 19-20th April 2018

Recommended Posts

Ok guys im currently at 37 days... 18 days post op I still had a great head of hair... at 24 days 90% had shed :eek: God what a change in 6 days!!! Cant believe how quickly it went!

At 5 weeks though I can see a lot of little black dots, im hoping it is early growth

 

I must say the donor pain was a lot worse than I imagined and id stock up on painkillers for the first 10-14 days post op.

 

Other than the shedding the recipient area is fine, numbness went after 3rd week and not too red/pink. but definitely well into ugly duckling phase :(

 

Donor zone.. God its been irritating as f*ck, loads of little spots and yellow heads from 14 days onwards... Sema advised it could be hair transection and to shampoo more firmly on the donor... which I have but to no avail. I asked about antibiotics-antiseptic but was advised it wasn't needed.

At present I have about 16 yellowheads in the donor and 2 huge hard spots and maybe 15 small hard spots... Just hoping it relieves itself in the next week or ill seek more advice.

 

Images are attached at 28 days... if you zoom in you can see the pimples in the donor! They have got worse since but my hair has grown to conceal them :)

At the minute the HT doesnt seem worth it but I guess everyone goes through this stage

 

Your in deep ugly duckling zone at the moment and it can be best described as being sh1t!

Just stay positive with the thought in another 3 months, the worst will be behind you and your little 'friends' will be reappearing :D. Sad to hear you are struggling with spots, it seems common although I didn't get them as bad - hope things settle down soon. Trust me when you get around the 4 month mark, things just change overnight it seems. When I look back at pics at around 6 weeks, I look terrible. Good luck and I will continue to follow your progress.

I had my transplant 14 days ago. Can't agree wit you more regarding the donor pain. It was crazy, especially day 5 to day 9. Even after pain killers, was very hard to sleep.

 

Wanted to ask you regarding the spots and pimples on your donor, did they appear after 14th day or were their signs before that? I ask as right now, my donor area is completely clean, but wondering if I should get mentally prepared for those pimples..?

Hi Seftest, no there were no signs before 14 days, they just came all of a sudden!

OK guys ... at month 2 (8 weeks) I had my hair cut at the sides, on top i could see lots of little black dots appearing, scarring at back and sides is minimal, still felt pretty shitty. I went to see a dermatologist regarding the spots/pimples and was told it could be possible mild folliculitis, i was prescribed lymecycline 408 for 30 days and also hibiscrub shampoo... all spots disappeared within 5 days :D

I post my 2 month photos here now... I felt disappointed at this stage

Now I feel brilliant, at 10 weeks ( 70 days ) I had many hairs sprouting and no longer needed a cap!!! Next week is my 3 month results so will post then but for the last 2 weeks I have felt great and confident... From talking distance ( a metre) away , no one can tell :D Month207.jpg.f6b06d47900ed8392fb45e6446a6e518.jpgMonth208.jpg.917e8c21fa4ce7120837694f2864e9d8.jpg

The donor pain is next level haha. I’m still getting huge painful pimples almost 2 months in. They were worst around 1 month.
