2663 - FUE - Dr Lupanzula - May 14th 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I finally did it! I was on Propecia for 10 years I believe it dramatically slowed down my loss ( no side effect), I had a 1 year break because i got freaked out by all the stuff I read online but then went back on Propeica. 

So, Biotin, pumpkin seed tablets, laser comb, minox for the rest. 

My hair loss pattern is not even which is also not unusual. So anyone with uneven hair loss, hopefully my post helps. 

After months of research and coming out of a long term relationship I thought Its better I get the HT now while I am single then I can jump back in the game with confidence haha. Hopefully it pay's off 😂

So I decided on Lupanzula. A number of factors went into my decision. I was in the range of 2200-2660 so got an extra 63 grafts in the top end. 

Literally finished surgery a few hours ago so this post is fresssssh - Fingers Crossed. I will post monthly updates. I pledge not to ghost once's I start seeing results.

Congratulations! I'm really glad that you have decided to share your experience. I can't stress how important this is for the community in enabling them to make an informed decision on clinic/surgeon and even deciding whether hair transplantation is right for them. I know we will be in touch but I'm looking forward to seeing the journey unfold on here. Happy healing and growing.

Thanks Scott, will continue documenting and hopefully it helps more people. As I got frustrated during my research when people just went silent after a while. I don't want to do that.

Day 4. Swelling under eyes. Looks like I have been punched haha. Healing on the top the stain I think is from the shampoo. Donor Looks good as well.

Work looks very clean and you are healing well. Dr Lupanzula is another who leaves the donor looking in clean, tidy condition after a procedure.

exactly. Donor management is just as important as the recipient area.

What size punch was used for the extractions?

 

I have no idea haha small enough to not be noticeable. 😁

Very clean donor, that punch is very small...

Try to sleep partially elevated to help with the swelling, and don't lean forward (like looking at cell phone). Be very gentle with your post-op care, there's no rush. Taking care of your HT is the most important thing, so move slowly when addressing your head care. I personally preach against direct shower pressure on your HT. Try to place hand over the showerhead and let water flow down onto your head - or use a pitcher to rinse. I see you did your own research, but we're all here to help should you need it. 

Best of luck.

Please keep us updated on your progress!

Day 5+6 - Pain in Donor area so terrible sleeping. Pain is on a 6/7 Level. I am taking Paracetamol which is helping a bit. Might add some Ibuprofen to the mix.

Thanks for creating your journey, I’m glad you’ve created such a comprehensive write-up. Please consider creating a patient website, I think the community would really benefit from it.

Thanks dude. Will keep documenting. As it was very frustrating for me when people would drop off after getting a little bit of results. So hopefully a full progress of my journey will help. Obviously a very long way to gooooooo

Day 9: 

So I stayed in Brussels for 12 days as I wanted to heal properly. As I have my own business I can run it from my laptop so that made the longer stay easier. 

Today is my last day here and while I was here, Dr Lupanzula insisted I come see him nearly everyday for a wash and check up which I thought was amazing of him because I can imagine how busy he is. 

My experience with Dr Lupanzula + his team was incredible, he really does take a patient first approach. He is a very humble and down to earth guy, always putting himself in the shoes of the patient. I did a lot of research before my HT and met with a lot of Dr's but Dr Lupanzula was the only Dr that made me feel 100000% comfortable. 

As you can see, Donor area looks good. I still have discomfort in my donor area but that is because my nerves are more sensitive than normal. Washing off the scabs slowly on the top and still discoloured from the trauma. So that will take time to heal. Dr said I can wear a cap now rather than the usual bandana. 

Now time for the most important part. The waiting game for the results. I will aim to post once a month.
