My hair transplant at Asmed Istanbul - 4500 grafts FUE

Recommended Posts

A bit of shedding

 

id say I’ve noticed at least 60 hairs coming off. Not looking forward to shedding and hope I’m lucky and they stay put! 

 

scabs were off for exactly day 11. Most fell day 9 but few remained day 10. I followed the video and did circular motions when washing at day 11 and within one wash they were off

Hello all

 

its 4 weeks post op yesterday. Will be one calendar month on Monday. 

I have been losing a few hair here and there. Mainly in the shower . I also have a lot of small hair which haven’t grown in the hairline, some of these have been shedding too. I hope these short ones are ones that went into shock after transplantation and will grow back!

A few photos here, some in room light, some with flash and the final one is in direct morning sunlight

In your first 10 - 12 days how long were yowashing your hair for every day (lotion, x2 shampoo) in total ?im on day 10 of post HT wash most the scabs are off (which makes the scalp stand out more) my coordinator said i can start doing longer massages when washing but i've been  doing it that anyway. And what point did you start sleeping normal positions again?

not for long . I’d say just massage the soap in for 2 mins in circular motion then rinse off 

lay normal position is sleeping on my chin and cheek so I went to sleep regular position about 6 days post op

Hello all

 

a day off 5 weeks post op now

 

slowly getting thinner I feel, I know it’s the ugly duckling phase but still worried the hair won’t come back, or worse ; the hair hasn’t shed that much and because it is longer it makes it look thinner #paranoia 

 

mine thing I have noticed is that the hair on the vertex is pointing in all sorts of directions. Even hairs in double grafts are pointing in different directions to each other . 

 

Redness is a lot better I feel, and nice to be able to feel my scalp again as numbness has pretty much gone

At least you're well underway.  Now it's purely a waiting game I actually really want to start shedding asap and get this process underway!

At least another 6-weeks of waiting then you should see some growth kick in.

From your photos it doesn’t look as if you’ve done anything wrong, but, like I mentioned keep your scalp out of the sun or covered, also take a daily biotin supplement, eat a good clean protein rich diet, don’t wash your scalp too much drying it out and creating skin flaking and dandruff, only use a baby shampoo, do not use any hair styling products or hair fibers or dyes, and do not hit your head on anything. ?

No idea mate, but the temple points haven’t shed and just start growing as normal hair immediately . You cannot see any difference on the temples .

Hello all

 

hope you are all doing well

 

a little almost 7 week post op update 

 

bofh myself and my fiancé are convinced I have new hair sprouting from beneath the skin.

 

see below zoomed in photos. Some

hairs (in our opinion) can be seen trapped beneath the skin and I am seeing new hairs every day . 

I don’t even care if it’s my imagination. It feels so good having hair on my slick bald head, if things stayed as they are I’m happier than I was before with my hair. 

 

Please have a look and let me know what you think

@Kraistoff,

 Thanks for sharing your progress pictures as you go through each stage. I know personally how hard of the docking fees is. You experience all these doubts and worry that the hair won’t come back but then they sign of hope… You feel like there may be a new hair coming through the skin. And if you think there is, there probably is. But most the time, the hair that comes back in at first is thin, colorless and wispy.   But over time, these Harris will darken, second and be the caliber of your natural hair. 

 I know you were a little anxious and nervous at the stage as we all are, but hanging in there. Several more weeks to go and you should start seeing some signs of growth. It could take anywhere up to five months to see some growth sprouting but you might experienced it around three months. 

Please  keep us posted, 

Bill
