I am an African American female that suffered from traction Alopecia. I decided to do a hair transplant on Sept 28th 2016! I had the FUT strip procedure done. The experience wasn't bad at all, the procedure isn't painful. I think if anyone is considering a hair transplant you should go for it. Min pain

Hair Transplant 1 days post op

Here are my pictures 1 Day after the procedure. You are instructed to keep your hands off of the grafts so they can settle in your scalp. We sere aiming to cover the entire area but we're only spoke to Transplant about 5,000 hairs

Hair Transplant - Donor area, incision site 1 and 2 days After

Here are my photos of my incision site, the donor area where he took a strip of tissue with hair to transfer to the front of my head. These photos are 1 and 2 days after

Hair Transplant 3 days after

For the first 3 days I was instructed to sleep at a 45 degree angle semi upright until the grafts settled in my scalp. Here are pictures 3 days after the procedure..

3 days after Hair transplant

2 weeks after Hair transplant

Here are my 2 week photos, all scabs have fallen off, my skin is raised and isn't smooth he said that's all normal and the hairs that's here now will shed and grow back within in 3 to 4 months, full results aren't until a year afterwards

Donor area! Incision site 2 1/2 weeks post op...already hair growth and you can barely see the incision ????????

Here are pics of the donor area after the sutures were removed.. this is 2 and half weeks post surgery. Incision is hardly noticeable and hair is already growing back.

3 months after FUT procedure..

It's been 3 months and this is the growth so far, I think I'm happy with the progress so far.. doctor said I should see growth at the 3-4 month mark. Some ladies that had same doctor said 4 month when it really takes off...You can see the area with no hair we didn't have enough grafts to cover all my bald areas since we used some to move the hairline down :( but I'm hoping it thickens up enough to cover it..

Ingrown Hairs and cobblestone ????

I'm a little over 3 months and have been getting these bumps or ingrown Hairs on my scalp in the transplanted area. And the cobblestone look is very noticeable.. Have anyone else experience this?

4 month update

These are my 4 month results, I was hoping to see more growth but I understand that it takes time.. on the photos you can see the areas that are completely bald, we didn't have enough grafts for those areas but I am hoping it grows thick enough in front to cover it
