5113 FUT - Dr Hasson - March 2018

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum.  This is my first post.  I had an FUT with Dr. Hasson in March 2018. 5113 Grafts, of which approximately 2/3 went into the front and 1/3 into the crown.  I'm submitting some photos of the journey and my results so far.

Here are the pre-op pics.  Sorry, I don't have any pre-op pics of the crown area.

Here are a few more early pics.  The first is a day 2 post-op pic.  The second is from day 5 or so.  Lot's of scabs.  As you can see, I was too timid with the washing.  The next two are from day 7 after the scabs came off, and you can see the work.

Almost six months post-op.  Taken in late August.  

That's it for now.  Will post more as the result progresses.

Fantastic results

 

can you share some details regarding your post op care:

 

what shampoo did you use and for how long?

did the doctor give you anything to help you sleep the night when the procedure was completed?

etc

@jj51702 thank you!  

Regarding post-op care, Dr. Hasson has a pretty simple protocol .  They sent me home with a neck pillow, a pillow case cover, pain tablets for 2-3 days, one week of antibiotics, a couple of sleeping pills, a bottle of herbal shampoo, and a loose fitting baseball hat that I wore out the door. 

I went back to clinic for the first washing.  Unfortunately I never got to use the herbal shampoo. I forgot it was in my carry-on going through airport security and it was confiscated.  I had to use baby shampoo instead.  The instructions were to pat it on lightly on days 2-5 and then use medium fingertip pressure on days 5-7.   In hindsight, I was too gentle with the washing during the first week.

At one week I soaked the scabs with mineral oil and then lightly massaged them off in the shower.  I repeated that 2-3 times that day until most of the scabs were gone.  From then on I used regular shampoo with with more pressure.

Great results. How is the scar ? Is it visible?

Thanks!  The scar has healed really well. The redness has faded and the ingrown hair issues have settled down. It is not detectable with my hair at 3 guard length  It helps that my scalp is very pale.  Here is a pic of the scar today with my hair a bit longer (time for a haircut).

Nice. I see in this forum more and more people going for FUT. FUT scares me, it sounds like it is much painful and healing time is relatively longer than FUE.

Yes, I think FUT is the more painful procedure, and the healing time is longer.  One needs to take that into account when making a decision between FUE and FUT.

The front is turning out great. How is the crown turning out..? 

There wasn't much pain involved with my FUT. It was more of an ache, than "pain"...and it lasted for a week or two.  What hurt was when my local Dr. pulled the sutures out.
