Here is a picture of my hair 10 days after a 2132 graft FUE procedure with Dr Gabel in Portland. All crusting is gone and the grafts are growing. I'm preparing for the "Ugly Ducking" stage to begin.

Looking outstanding, the detail in the graft placement is second to none as always! Congrats Skeet!

No sorry, I couldn’t find the pre-ops I got from Dr Gabel. I’ll call the office and see if I can get one.

I know I was a Norwood 3 though, I had deep corner recession and a frontal tuft that was decent. 

The redness lasted about a month and was never really too bad to begin with.

so far things are coming along really well...

in Portland. All crusting is gone and the grafts are growing. I'm preparing for the "Ugly Ducking" stage to begin. I'm pretty happy, Dr Gabel's work is really clean and neat and everything has gone very well so far.

Wow! Only 10 days out? Your density looks terrific! Looks like your healing is going quite well too. Have you noticed much shock loss since then? Looking forward to more photos too, especially if you can get closeups.  Happy growing!

Hi Skeeter,  Thank you for sharing your experience !!!!   

How are you progressing ? Was it difficult to conceal the surgery  (due to shock loss, redness, or other) ?   Any suggestions on how to conceal ?  (Hat, Hair products etc)

Hi kelmf01,

Progresding really well. Redness subsided within about two months, shockloss...I didn’t really notice any as far as I could tell. 

I wore a hat sporadically starting about two months before surgery, sort of got everyone used to seeing me in it. Wore the hat for about three months and now wear it only if I’m in the sun for a period of time such as in the field or at the beach to protect my head.

Just use a hat and you’ll be fine, here is a pic from today right after a haircut, this is exactly 4 months and three days from surgery. (But who’s counting)  No. 2 blade, high fade, top left longer. 

My head is still a bit numb in the recipient area, other than that no issues. Everything has been flawless, Dr. Gabel knows what he is doing...

Best of luck to all!

Mark
