great results.

looking at your problem mirrors my problem exactly.

Out of the 1000 grafts, how many do you think grew?

I had about 200 hundred planted about 2 months ago. For me its just a start.

Yours look real good.

Thanks for posting.

Think i got 90+ % yeild , the tissue in the scar appears to benefit from the grafts as well , has a more healthy appearence , had 1k more last week , with Dr Bisanga so will update when grows in

all the best

I agree with everyone here, huge improvement. I also have a strip scar and I am considering doing the same, your after pics are 16 months, is that because that’s how long it took for the beard hairs to grow? Normally the grafts grow between 6-12 months.

I think most of them were growing within the timeframe of 12 - 14 months , however takes a lot longer in scar tissue , especially beard , i have been told in some cases can still be growing through at 2 years

Thanks, was it your idea to get another 1000 grafts or it was Dr. Bisanga’s recommendation? You look pretty good already after the first 1000, wonder why it was necessary to go for another 1000. Would this be final or you think you need more?

wow, thats alot of grafts, did bisanga extract all of them, through how many surgeries were the extracted, it does look good at only 6 days, did you have any removed from above the jawline? if so did it heal well also, i think its much harder to remove hair from this area cause the tissue/lower cheek area is so soft, unfortunately,thanks

Hey looks good man, I have been thinking of doing the same for my strip scar, it seems like beard hair is the way to go.

Just curious, the strip scar that you have is from how many grafts?

the higher scar produced about 800 grafts if i remember correctly .

All in all very happy so far with the progress , had 400 beard to crown this time that doesnt seem to have fallen out so will get pics up soon , yes i had extractions above jawline with no visible marks or scarring ,

Dr Bisanga and Dr Bevan ( Dr Bisangas colleague ) extracted all the grafts

ejj, your beard still looks very dense, do you know how many beard grafts you can still spare after this?

Im fortunate to have a extremely dense beard , I think 2 poss 3 more procedures will put me were i want to be , i think i could get another 3 or 4 thousand if needed

Thanks

am at nineteen months post op so uploaded a few pictures i took earlier today.

I still have hair breaking through the tissue at this stage approx 10 -20 hairs over the last couple of weeks

The tissue appears pinker and feels warmer, i think this is due to Dr Bisangas approach of low density grafting to establish blood supply and possibly add more grafts later , however i dont really worry about this anymore as its like having a twenty year weight removed from my shoulders ! thanks to all at BHR

thanks for all the comments

all the best

Hi ejj

Thanks for the update and glad of the continued growth and difference it is making.

Best for 2013.

I took some pictures this morning of the left side of my scalp. The pictures show my consultation at BHR and the ten month post op, after having one thousand beard grafts into this area last May.

A lot of hairs this time around just started to grow and did not fall out and enter the resting phase. Next stage of repair is in May so will update around then.
