FUE - 2700 Rahal 5/2019

Recommended Posts

I’m still currently here. I will be leaving tomorrow. I got the surgery done two days ago and there’s still some swelling so I didn’t end up driving home today

Staff was very helpful and nice. Guesthouse is a nice option with 5 separate bedrooms and a common area. I met two gentleman, one in his 50s and one in his late 20s. It was both of their second procedures here, so they were happy enough with the first to come back to Rahal.

Nice temple point restore will be interesting to see how it turns out

Who did what and what part of the procedure was Dr. Rahal involved in ?

Thanks... fingers crossed.  I’ll update every month for progress. I don’t currently take any meds, just biotin. Always had a high forehead, then minimal hair loss since high school (currently 34) Might try minoxidil down the road when allowed to help the growing process

Rahal drew the hairline and did the incisions. Two staff did the donor punching then three techs did implanting recipient area. Total surgery was 8-9 hours with a 10-15 minute lunch break and small bathroom breaks.  Rahal came at times to see how I was doing then came at the end to tell them to put final 3-4 grafts at front hairline.  I like the idea of the doctor being involved in most, if not all of the process but after seeing how long it took 3 techs (two implanting and one keeping track of grafts/putting some type drops when asked by the two) it’s unrealistic imo. I realize there’s certain doctors out there that do majority of work.  I believe Rahal does two surgeries a day separated by an hour or two start times

I attached pictures from a previous thread.  This was when my hair was being grown out for the procedure. Unfortunately I didn’t take pics when it was like 2 inches long, but you can see how weak my temple points were with the left side being worse

The work looks nice and clean.

May I ask how old you are?

Interesting that two techs performed all of the punching. Nothing wrong with that, Im sure they have been sufficiently trained by Dr Rahal but were you made aware of this beforehand?

I believe one tech did the punching and the second was there to assist with the grafts/anasthetic? Not sure as they were behind me. I’m sure there weren’t two punching.  I will be 34 y/o in June

 Congratulations on selecting an outstanding surgeon for your hair transplant. In addition to posting on our forum, I encourage you to create a  free patient website which is the best way to document your entire hair transplant journey with photos, videos, etc.  In fact, we recently overhauled them to make them not only mobile friendly, but essentially like an app that response so well that you can create and manage your website by tapping a few buttons.  By tapping a few buttons.  

Create your own website, simply go to www.hairlossweblogs.com. You can then take your patient website and link it to your form signature.   Or you can just link it directly into your post. There are instructions on how to do all that in the “hair transplant experiences and surgeon reviews“ forum up at the top. It’s a pinned topic.   For more instructions, feel free to ask.    You can find a link to my  I lost website and document a journey in my signature below. 

best wishes,

Bill
