2700 graft FUT by Dr Bloxham in Great Neck, NY


Recommended Posts

Wow, this is a great result. I understand hair greed as I suffer from it myself, but I really wonder where you want to fit 1800 FU? Do you have pics with the new design drawn?

I’m going for this look 

I laughed so hard reading this, as I had exactly the same look from Jake as goal. Unfortunately my hair on the side donor is so thick and poorly angled: In this length even with the strongest styling options it sticks straight up. Then my head is wider than it is high^^ Had to shave it down...

EDIT: you were quicker than me 🙂

Here’s a couple pictures from a few months ago. 1st photo is about a month after surgery when all the new hair fell out...The second photo is the day after I got the staples removed. Easier to se

This is an excellent example of why I'm still in favor of FUT over FUE.  

Hello! Procedure 2 is done. This was a smaller case of about 1800 grafts really densely packed.  The goal was to lower the corners and straighten/thicken the hairline for the slick back look

I just added some photos!

 

also- look into a keratin treatment. Makes the hair much more easier to manage

I attached some photos. First surgery really covered the bulk of my thinning..second should get my hairline to exactly where I want 

The 2 pictures with lines drawn are my hair completely pushed back (I don’t style it that way right now)

you can see what I’m really going for with the new lines- I’m basically keeping the center line and just giving it a straighter hairline by lowering the corners 

(The lines are roughly drawn in by me-Dr Bloxham will make the official decision day of surgery)

I totally get it. I was is a similar boat about wearing the hair straight back. Especially with product in  your hair. When you hair clumps together like almost not washing your hair for a few days, it can look thinner. Now that’s all I do wear my hair pushed back even with the sun shining in my hairline I feel comfortable. So go for it!

Total 3, but I had some bad crown issues that got me back in the chair the 3rd time and we cleaned up the front while I was there.  So happy I went for the 3rd. Now I am totally fue which I know bloxham would absolutely not recommend but hey, I turned out fine! ....and trust me I was pretty much bald in front. My hairline began past my ears before! 😂

WOW! You look great. Just checked out your thread. 
 

hey if anybody thinks I’m crazy I just tell them sunk cost fallacy. I invested a lot of money and I don’t mind spending more to get the exact result I want. I feel like it’s almost wasted money otherwise.

Absolutely! I am not even sure I have 10k in my hair? Actually I know I don’t!😂I probably broke all the rules if I listen to many YouTube videos. I am very happy!

UPDATE:

HAIR GREED IS A THING. 

I just booked my second surgery with Dr. Bloxham for December 15th. 
 

surgery plan is to lower my corners/straighten my hairline and densely pack 1800 grafts in that area. I’m super excited..the goal is to really be able to push back my hair and feel 100% comfortable doing so.

 

stay tuned for updates !

Your original HT post was the one that helped me solidfy Bloxham as my choice for my surgery, so I can't wait to see how this second procedure goes for you! Best of luck as you recover 😊

Thank you! Did you get your HT done yet?

Oh yes I did !! I basically kept the middle point the same and brought the corners down. Still a light curve bc that’s what my forehead/shape of head calls for but it’ll be much straighter as you can tell already

Congrats Mike, very good one.

Question: You are very young. What if you start loosing from top and vertex? Do you have enough left in the donor? Did the doctor mention anything about your future progress and plans?

Hey man,

Doc was confident that I can do this second procedure and if I continue to thin I’ll still have plenty of donor left to hit the top/scalp area

Man you are super lucky that you have great donor hair! You can get as many hair transplants as you possibly need 😂

Also when did you get full sensation back to your scalp after the first procedure? When did the numbness to the scar and graft recipient area go away completely?
