Thank you and will do. I did forget to mention that when I chatted with my doc I asked him if I could get another FUT to fill in my crown.  He said its dependent upon donor site . I have had 2 FUT procedures. First was around 10 years ago with Dr Lehr ( Oklahoma City) and does not do them anymore. It was around 2000 but I doubt that number and results were sub par. Second was just last year Dr Arocha ( Houston, Tx) and so far very pleased with results, 2500 grafts . With all this being said, Arocha said he would absolutely be able to do another FUT and went on to explain the benefits of FUT respective to each patient . I think it is very important for patients to keep open communication with their surgeon on a regular basis. Yes, these doctors are busy but if they can find the time to talk with their patients,  that's one more quality to give us peace of mind.

Sorry if I’ve already asked you this made2care but do you have retrograde alopecia at all? 

I don't. My hair is very thick and full. I simply have male pattern baldness. My hairline has been fixed and all I lack is the crown. At 51 I'm pretty blessed to have what I have. No signs of alopecia.

Hi made2car,

How are you feeling after? Are you happy enough with the result after 2700 grafts? Why did you go for FUT and not FUE

Also, could you share some more photos with natural light and if possible outside in the sun? All the photos I have seen are a bit dark. 

Thanks for sharing your experience and congrats on your new look : )

Quick update. I'm letting my hair grow longer on top and man !! I'm loving it! Very full. There is one little spot on my right side that I will take a pic of. This will probably need a touch up but all the rest is great !

p.s. As you can tell, I don't mind revealing my entire face. I don't understand why people blur out their faces but hey, that's their choice , as for me, I'm proud and pleased of my choices. I want to show off my rock star looks with my new hair !! Thanks again to Dr Arocha, he's the real rock star here !

more pics to come, chow for now.

Each month it thickens up. It appears as though the texture changes.

Looks great, and very natural based on the pictures. I'll bet most people you run into have no clue you had any work done.

Thank you! I have my 1 year follow- up with Dr. Arocha mid July. His assistant has consistently contacted me during the year to check on me. Very professional and much appreciated!
