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.

So this is my post op- survival bag. It's all pretty self explanatory. I was especially fond of the neck pillow.

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!
