1412 FUE - Dr. Bisanga
Hey everyone. It’s Friday night here in NYC and the only thing on my mind at the moment is to post here on Hairsite. LOL!!! It really is a beautiful night here in NY and I’m sure I’m missing out on a lot of fun but unfortunately or fortunately (we’ll find out which is which much later in the year) I had my first HT a week ago so no going out socially for a while.
I recall looking through all the PICs and stories that recent members posted here in the past and how it really helpful during my research so I am now doing my part.
Here are my stats.
Ethnicity: East Asian
Hair type: Straight and course
NW level: 2-2.5
Donor level: Medium – Low (My donor density is not good, Dr. B wanted only to harvest from the safe zone in the back. My sides cannot be touched because it’s so low. Responsible doctor focusing on the patient’s best interests. Gotta love that!)
Right now, I am at 1-week post op and I love the hairline. Also, through this experience I found out I don’t look half bad with a shaved head. Who knew?! My donor area is coming along nicely. It is still sensitive to the touch but it has healed quite quickly. Right now you really have to look hard to see any signs that it was harvested. I would say another 2 – 3 weeks of hair growth it would be completely unnoticeable.
The scabs on my recipient area are starting to fall off and some hairs along with it. I believe this is normal, in fact I’m suppose to lose most if not all the grafts at month one. Hate to see em go…
I like to thank Dr. B and Phil and the rest of the staff at BHR for making my first HT experience feel like a breeze. OK, it wasn’t a breeze it was surgery not vacation. Just in case some new guys to HT is reading this, I don’t want you guys to think it’s a walk in the park. But as surgeries go it really wasn’t that bad. Think of it like going to the dentist but spending the whole day there. Yes, I know. I had a great time too…
