Dr. Feller, 3k n\' change, Pre/Post-Op Pics

Hey guys,

Just yesterday (1/8/08) I had a FUT procedure. Dr. Feller and his staff were meticulous in their goal towards providing the best, and the procedure (predictably haha) went great as Dr. Feller and his team implanted 3k grafts, which was our goal. Post-Op, save for a couple hours the first night, I have felt very little pain so far and haven’t had to continue usage of prescription pain meds. I actually just did my first hair/scalp wash and it looks great. I will be updating with future results as they come in, but here is my pre-op and immed post-op pics to get the ball rollin’! May we all grow well!






Why did he leave a gap with no hair ?

The gap is actually an area WITH hair, but an area that Dr. Feller shaved off with a blade for the FUT session, in addition to all my native hair in the front. The wait begins…!

Why strip? It’s really not worth getting a large scar over 3000 grafts. You were gonna get the scar anyway, you might as well go in for a killing and take at least 4000-5000 grafts.

I see your point. But if you look at the extent of his hair loss, he does NOT need 4000-5000 grafts. What is he going to do with the extra grafts? It’s not like he could store the grafts for later use.

This is a tough call. If he only needed 2000 grafts, then without a doubt FUE is the best choice cuz it’s really not worth getting a strip scar over 2000 grafts. 3000-4000 grafts is a gray area, tough call whether strip or fue is the better choice.
