2,300 grafts FUE w/ Dr. Nader

Recommended Posts

Hey folks - The members of this online network were very helpful in my decision to have a hair transplant. Sharing the results of my hair transplant with Dr. Nader is my way of giving back.  The first photos are from before the procedure.

Hey man, looks good and well packed, although, to be honest it looks from your photos like much more than 2,300 grafts for such a large area covered, is 2,300 true?

I agree. Looks like more than 2,300.  To that end though even if 3000 were done over such a large area, please have realistic expectations. It will be an improvement for sure, but nowhere near a full head of hair over the balding area. Dr. N is a good guy and might have thrown an extra 1000 in without telling you from the looks of it though. Maybe a Christmas resent.

It is possible you are right, however, I only paid for 2,300.  Below is the breakdown sheet that the Dr. prepared.

If that’s the case then hopefully you get good coverage in your results. 👍

I am nearly two months post op. at this point.  Never experienced any shedding. Numbness in the transplant area disappeared on my 3rd week post op. I'm disappointed with the growth.  Some hairs have grown pretty long, but are still thin.  Overall, I have not experienced much growth after the 4th week post op.  Any thoughts on what to expect from here?

This is completely normal at two months. Most transplanted hairs have shed. You shouldn’t be judging any results yet. New hairs should start coming in at 3+ months which will take at least until the 12th month to mature. 

 

Patience is your best bet!

Thank you @mrknid ! I appreciate the encouragement.  I never really understood what is meant by "shedding."  I've read people refer to pimples on their head and redness as "shedding" but I have not experienced any of that - so far, at least.  Should I expect the rest of the transplanted hairs to shed (or fall) as well?  I agreed with you that some of the transplanted hairs have fallen because they appeared to be thicker at 1-month post-op.

thank you @jj51702 ! Good to know.  I'll reserve judgment until later.  I'll be posting future results.

You shed tons of hairs. Looks like nearly all of your transplanted hairs fell out. So kind of shocking to hear you say you didn't shed when it is obvious by the pics you shed most all of it. Normal to have a few thin hangers on that don't shed. You will get some fine fuzz starting to poke through over the next few months and they will become thicker over time. Be patient.
