I’ve posted this on other forums, but I thought I would post the story/updates here also. Here are some pics of my FUE/BHT session with Dr. Umar the week of 12/04/06. I was a NW6, and it was important to me that BHT was part of the process because I did not want to use all my head hair for possible future sessions.
I was scheduled for 5000 grafts, which he believed would be done within 5 days with no issues. It ended up being 4 days and 5316 grafts because of the BHT yield.
All consent forms and consoltations had been done already via Email/phone contact, so when I arrived on Tuesday morning, there was only the basic exams and paperwork to finish before the Dr. started.
After a brief exam from the Dr, he noticed that I had psoriasis that was just starting on my scalp ( which was news to me ), but he fully explained what this could mean for the transplant and that it did not jeopardize my proceedure as long as I kept and eye on it after I left his office. Dr. Umar is also a board certified dermatologist, so he was able to perscribe medication to help with the psoriasis also. That was a bonus…
Everything except the graft ‘cleaning’ is done by Dr. Umar only.
In the end, I had 1300 FUE and rest was all BHT…
The pics in the first post are from 3 days post op. The shin extraction point was from day 1 and the chest from days 2-4.
Post 2-4 will be just photos of the progression each month up until April.
