Hello,

 

My dr was Dr Konior.  here are my pics I s from my 1500 graft procedure in mid June. First 3 are 2days post op. Next 3 are 1 week post op followed by next 3 being 2 weeks post op.   And following 2 pics of dry hair are 4 weeks.  Next  3 are 4 weeks post op.  Last 3 are 5 weeks post op.  I promise I will only post once a month, and I crammed way too many picks in this post!  It looks like the grafts are gone and I’m an ugly duckling?

I think you and I basically had our procedures done around the same time as I was also there in mid June. Can I ask why you only opted for 1,500 as it seems you could've done with more? Also, was this a FUE or FUT? You and I are pretty much in similar conditions. Best of luck to both of us.

hello all,

I did want more grafts but dr. Konior didn’t want a bigger procedure because he wanted to be sure this procedure or successful.  I had 2 other procedures in the past 13 and I haven’t had much growth especially in the front.  The total number of grafts that I have had done have been roughly 3700.  I wanted to have more grafts on the back third and crown but As mentioned Dr Konior was leery of this.  He did say that if I am successful we can do another procedure later on covering those areas.  He is the expert in this field and I am hoping this procedure does well.  It’s tough to see the grafts go though even when you know it’s supposed to happen. ?. But It’s all about trusting the process ?

@harrylloyd how are you doing with the healing?

I had a FUT and my incision area is still tender when I rest my head on a pillow, which is expected. I also feel like my incision area is a bit tight but that's also to be expected so i'm just waiting it out at this point. Other than that I guess I'm healing well. I'm in prime ugly duckling phase right now. I do also totally trust Dr. K and it almost seems like he can do more with less grafts than other doctors but even in my case I wish we had gone more aggressive but he seemed a bit conservative so I didn't wanna push it. I've noticed that Dr. K and Dr. Nadimi (his fellow doctor) seem to stay in the 1500 range for FUE and 2000-2400 range for FUT. Just something I've noticed. Was yours a FUE this time around? I fear I'll also have to get a FUE in the future to add a bit more coverage as I don't plan on taking fin or using minox

I’ve actually always had the strip surgery.  He did mention that we may go to fue in the future but of course he wants to see how this surgery goes.  Do you have any pics of your surgery?  I’m getting a bit nervous since my previous surgeries especially in the front were not as successful.

2 months is essentially the worst time, because you’ve shed and dealing with minor shock loss. 

You chose an excellent surgeon with a great reputation. The next coming months will be fantastic.

warm regards- Melvin

Hey everyone here is a week later from 2 months post op.  I wasn’t planning to post this but I have been getting on and off all weekend and earlier the top of my forehead was swelling.  I wasn’t sure what was going on or if it was related to grafts so I had some pics taken and am wondering if you can see any swelling.  Has anyone had these head aches 2 months out?  It’s odd because sometimes it feels as if the donor area is hurting as well.  I took about 4 Tylenol but no luck.  Hoping someone went through something similar?
