Just had surgery on Feb 27. I'm posting this 3 days later on March 2. So far recovery is going smooth. No surprises! The operation was closer to 12 hours, but the experience was super quick, looking back at it. The staff, movie selection, and food accommodations certainly eased the process.
They managed to pull 2250 grafts via FUE, and distribute over 2/3 to the front and the remainder to my crown.
The procedure was practically painless, the most uncomfortable parts were the way had to sit a few times during the surgery and sleeping a bit upright the 1st night. There was also a light constriction around my head, which went away the next day. Otherwise, they applied the appropriate amounts of medication/ local anesthetic so that there was 0 pain on my head while the process was being done.
Today I feel pretty good, scalp is a little itchy. It hurts a little to scrub my head with the special shampoo & brush. I had a follow up the next day, so they can thoroughly clean my scalp since I'm an amateur. I'll also have a 10 day follow up, followed by 1 month, 3, 6, 9, and 1 year. =)
I will keep everyone updated through out this next year.
Survival Kit Shown
So this is my post op- survival bag. It's all pretty self explanatory. I was especially fond of the neck pillow.
I'm Back and Have No Need To Wear a Cap ;-)
So attached you'll see a picture of me this Summer in Israel. As you can see... Wow.
It's been truly incredible to go for a haircut time and time again, and feel younger after every cut. My self confidence has definitely been getting up there lately.
I still have some work to go because there wasn't enough grafts to completely make my hair full. However, Dr. Mohebi is a hair genius, and strategically worked with what we had this session to create the illusion that it's full. :)
I plan on doing another FUE come end of this year. Of course, going with Dr. Mohebi again. And looking forward to achieving Justin Bieber Scalp Status!

Back With Another Update
Hey!!! Getting kinda lonely over here. hahaha So to grab your attention here's another pic of me, my hair, and an amazing girl I met.
I would have NEVER had the confidence to try and get to know her.. So happy I do though now. Just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out. :-)
Hey! So the hair line is still staying strong! Excited for this upcoming year! I'll be heading into a 2nd surgery from Dr. Mohebi. He was brilliant on where he positioned these hair follicles, but there's still more work that needs to be done so I can make the hair look denser now.
Getting Closer To Hair Surgery Number 2. Here's My Reasoning Why.
So a problem that most people experience, who are already so far "down the rabbit whole" of hair loss, is even if they get the hair surgery their problem isn't solved.
But I believe it's crucial to consider it still helped. And that's where I'm at..
For me, I'm fortunate because I tackled my problem early and the doctor focused on creating a hairline. Meaning you can see an apparent change in me.
But the truth is I still have this "disease" and will continue balding if I don't keep fighting.. Even now, after seeing my hair finally progress instead of regress.. it's looking like we're back to destruction as usual..
Though the work that the Doctor did on the first surgery hasn't been lost. It's just he can't prevent other hair from continuously falling out. The best I can do is finasteride. So that's why I'm going for number 2. And I'm sure there will be a # 3 and 4 down the line as well.. And you know what? I don't care! I'm grateful there's even a solution!
Most people don't even believe there is, or perhaps they do and don't find it worth the investment. but that new car is?... =/
Beyond grateful to tell nature fuck you. Coming up with the money isn't easy, but I'm pretty sure discovering FUE surgery was harder. I'll do the procedure justice. Stay tuned.
Hair Game Still Going Strong!
Hey All 2 of you out there!
Happy New Year!! So as you can see, still a hairline.
And still a reason to get a little more work ;) Because let's face it, I want Justin Bieber Status hair Density.
I'll be following up with the Doc come this Feb and will keep everyone posted on Round 2.
