Update -7 months 25 days

No new hair growth, transplanted hair getting thicker. Density is not very good, since I have my hair long it compensate for the density. I hope that it improve in the coming months.

8 months - scar update. 

Scars are quite wide. I need to grown hair very long to hide it.

I also got my hair transplant surgery done at same clinic one & half year back with the FUT technique. Within 7-8 months of the surgery, I felt that it will develop a scar at the donor site, but I was wrong. After 12 months of the surgery what I experienced that the scar gets linear, which got possible due to the Trichophytic closure. And, the result came with a good density.

10 months update.

Density is lacking.

Left side scar is still quite large.

So far the transplant is not convincing.

The way you came about it looked more worse before THE hair transplant.. I see some good hair growth though you'll need a second sitting for crown n my recommendation is to go with FUE technique n find a doctor who is an expert on fue technique.. You are 10 months let's see what more you can expect till the 12th or 13th month but I guess you should plan for another hair transplant just by the end of the year to get a good density n even take medicines n prp for 6 months after Ht

11 months update

Scar ended up very bad, even using blade 4 scar is visible clearly. Pictures attached. 

Density of the transplanted area is not great.

This is horrible , did you discussed it with your Dr.?

You can consider FUE Into that scar , it will not cover the scar completely but it surely look better than what is now or you can plan another FUT with top notch dr. And excise this scar

You lost 4500 precious donor grafts and are left with a big scar. All you have to show for it is minimal density on top. One of the worst results I have seen.

I will agree the scar is stretched. There is growth, but I can see that you’d expect more density. How many grafts were used in the crown? That said, there’s definitely an improvement, but you will definitely require more grafts to achieve more density. Thankfully, you’re a perfect candidate for fibers. 

Please share your name and date of surgery with me via private message and I will reach out to Dr. Suni on your behalf.

They offered me free prp and fue for scar, i will have to travel to india ( again flights are expensive). I do not want to waste grafts on scar.

There was no change in my scar or density from the above picuture. 

Choice is your, i am not sure to recommend Medispa because of the scar. Also check other real patient expérience of medispa and descide , Not just the ones uploaded by clinic. Hope this helps

Hi @thappa, Thanks for sharing your updates. Its disappointing that you didn't get the expected results but it depends on patient to patient how you will heal.

I am no expert so can't comment on what to do next, but I hope upon your next visit you will discuss in detail with him.

I would suggest go through below study to "Determine the Efficacy of Topical Minoxidil plus Micro-needling/derma-roller versus Topical Minoxidil Alone".

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30886475

 

I have been following Medispa for about an year or so and I was impressed and convinced to go with him (next year may be) when I visit India. However I came across this platform few week ago and I have seen some bad reviews about Medispa which has influenced my decision a bit (not completely).

I had a telephonic conversation with Him recently and since my grade of blandess is 5. So for me combination of FUT + FUE along with TRICHOPHYTIC closure is suggested.

Hi Thappa,
Short answer : The way you started , your hair looks nicer comparatively. 
Long answer : The grafts could have been used more efficiently . Because I can see that all did not grew given the amounts of hair you got transplanted. I haven't gotten FUT because of the fear of the scar, but it looks like if you grow your hair bigger at the back it can be avoided. The deed is done , so no point worrying about it . If you will click pictures in the harsh light, there is going to be some disappointment always. Good thing is that you have body hair with you that can save you.
Are you in states ? I also got my HT from India, but had satisfying results. 
It would be prudent to brainstorm this with the doctor as to what went wrong . If the doctor is ready to stand by you , it's a good thing, but I would think really hard before getting anything done at the same place.

Also guys, please don't make discouraging comments. Going under the knife takes a lot of the toll on the body, the least we can do is motivate and help each other.

Dr. Soni is a very highly skilled surgeon w/well over 2,000 surgeries.  He uses the most modern techniques for FUT.  Very consistent results (bang for buck).  ANY surgeon will have outlier cases where the patient had a bad outcome.  H&W & other top 20 clinics 'round the world as well.

Medispa puts out alot of video documentation of Dr. Soni's work as well.  If it's your 1st strip surgery - the chances of a very good outcome for a megasession w/Medispa is extremely high.

I had my 6th FUT (my 1st five were 100/120/400/700/2250 grafts) w/him in 03/16 for 4,500 FUT & 500 FUE

I was a NW5 and now have full coverage and the strip he took out (new strip) has stretched a bit as well.  I plan on a final FUT to cut out two sections to get 1-2K of grafts out of the worst scar(s) & then will fill in a bit w/FUE some selected spots as well.  Perhaps some SMP - not sure.  I wear my hair long so it's not a big issue normally.

Probably go to Dr.  Wong to do that at H&W.  I had a consultation w/H&W rep in 02/18 and w/scalp exercises they said I might be able to get a final 2K of grafts w/the FUT scar revision.

Frankly, I'm thrilled I was able to do one last big FUT surgery w/nearly 100% graft survival.  I'm sure if I was to have Medispa address the stretched scar Dr. Soni would work w/me on that - although another trip to India is a long ways to go when your just getting adjustments and not a mega session.

Hello @jjsrader I'm researching a bit about results by Dr. Suneet from Medispa, and you had replied to a previous post I wrote (thank you for that). I just read that you did a transplant from Medispa. Have you documented your hairloss, hair transplant and hair growth progress here on the forum that I can refer to? Also, I am trying to read more about the strip stretching. Since you mentioned about your stretching I am curious if you would like to share a picture so that I can see. It's up to you and I respect your privacy if you don't want to share. Thanks in advance.
