It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on the forums but as I am going back into the chair for a second FUE procedure this Friday the 21st December with Dr Bisanga, I thought I would start a new thread.
I had a small FUE surgery in 2006 with Dr Feller on the right hand side of my hairline of about 400 grafts. I’ve been on propecia since 2004 and have been fortunate not to lose too much hair. I am now 32 years old and feel it is the right time to go for a second pass in the same area to hopefully improve the density, reduce the recession at the widows peak and lower the hairline.
Whilst satisfied with my first procedure I decided to go to Dr Bisanga and BHR for my second pass after seeing a lot of their work online. I had a good consultation in person with Dr Bisanga a few years ago and I met up with Stingray, who posts online, to view his results. The location/cost factor of the clinic was also important as I live in London.
I will upload some current pre-op pictures. I wear my hair short on the back and sides and would like the option of shaving my head all over so density and well angled grafts are my priority. I’d like to thank Steve the clinic rep who has been very helpful. Will keep you all updated
I leave in the morning for Brussels and have a pre-op consult booked in for the afternoon, then the big day is Friday. I have quite specific areas of the donor region I don’t want to be harvested from in order not to thin it out too much and/or so that I could get max yield from a strip surgery at some point in the future. I discussed this with Dr Bisanga at our consult a few years back and I believe Stingray had a similar approach. I’ll get some pictures of the donor areas used and avoided during the surgery for you guys too.
I’m hoping that if this relatively conservative session goes well and my yield is good, I could go back into the chair for another pass to address the left hand side of my hairline. With the hair pulled back it is as recessed as the right side but due to my cows lick/natural part my forelock covers up the left hand side much better. I’m well aware my hair loss is not nearly as bad as some and taking a cautious approach is sensible I think where possible. Again Stingray took a similar approach and I hope my hair line turns out as well as his and I can go back in for round 2 with Dr Bisanga at some point.
Will update post HT
