FUE | HDC (Cyprus) | 2753 grafts | 19-20 September | 25 years old

Recommended Posts

Edited.

2753 grafts (plenty of doubles). The pics are 1st day post op (2 days procedure). Was waiting for this for a while and happy hear your opinions. Obviously still a long way to go!

My skull shape seems a bit uneven on selfies. Curious as to how the straight hairline suits it

Edit: Just turned 25 for more info. Can take more pics. Personal exp - felt little pain after procedure.

I like hdc and they’ve been putting out good results for a while. Do you have before pics? How about more pics of your donor site?

Will follow closely. Too few patient threads from HDC. Always impressed by them.

Have any before pics with hair grown out?

Hey. Just got update, 2753 grafts, plenty of doubles. At first was said hair is relatively thin but not so bad.

Before pics (1 months ago) attached. Will upload more + donor later.

Thanks. Are you on finasteride?

Hi, thanks for reply. No and never did. Took minoxidil - took it before for no result and then for a month some time before the procedure (to cover a bald spot which occurred after a blister). Not using atm but I'm meeting the doctor/specialist some time until Thursday to see on how should I maintain

Also took some random vitamins which supposedly help before but also to no help

Edited by Yaro
Mixed finasteride with monoxidil

Hi. Thanks. Will provide photos when home.

Clinic got rid of scabs yesterday before checking out. Had one more shower after and told that all looks good. Cleaner was surprised the recipient-area scabs went before the ones at the back from the donor. I was concerned about going to uni this Saturday with scabs and it seemed they specifically solved this - happy. The donor ones should be the least concerned.

Yesterday when avoiding something when bending down on the way up I gently brushed a plastic thing with a corner of my head with some recipient area. Specialist said over mediocre photo that all looks fine. If there's no pain, no bleeding and nothing fell out how likely is damage from slightly blunt trauma? It was my 5th day post op but no scabs. The only thing I see is small brown spot but it could also be from scabs. Could also be lightning. If I understand even at 5th day post op with no scabs and no bleeding I'll be fine? Seems like they applied more pressure when massaging than me hitting. 🙂 Just being over-reactive.

Don’t worry bumping your head won’t kill the grafts unless there’s bleeding and they become dislodged

Looks like you healed well. Now you are at the absolute worst stage. From now up until 3-4 months. Just enjoy your life and try not to think about it.

Hey. Thanks, man. Been today to the clinic - was advised to start Mino next month and was also told of some hairs starting to grow. Will update then! 🙂

'Ugly ducking stage' I remember it well! Once you hit the 3/4 month mark things should start happening for you. Goodluck and I look forward to seeing your progress.

Good luck! Looking forward to your progress updates, haven’t seen any patient posted threads from HDC patients.

Appreciated! I update with great pleasure.

To be honest, I can't be any happier, given that an average patient experiences first growth at the third month stage. My guess this is due to my younger age.

7 weeks without 1 day update (attached).

Skin messed up due to extra blood flow messing up with the pores (or something?) - using antibacterial shampoo on both face and scalp as instructed by the clinic (did help the face at first, guess it would be even worse now without it).

What I noticed is my natural hairline is already growing out well. In RE to recipient area, I notice a lot of thin white hairs on photos - not sure if temporary. Also notice some thin hairs with thick like bulbs at the end - looks like they got thin now due to stress.

Edit: Identified some hairs which appear thin and thick only at end.

In RE white hairs, wasn't able to spot them at this compressed quality (came through WhatsApp)

Also noticing a lot of thin white hairs in the recipient area. My understanding is that they will grow thicker in the future and change their color?
