I scheduled a appointment to have a transplant on Jan 12, 2009. They have exceeded my expectations. I arrived in Vancouver on Sunday the 11th. Hasson and Wong booked a hotel room for 2 nights. The hotel has got to be one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The next morning I went into the clinic and everyone there was very helpful and extremely kind. Dr Hasson was able to harvest 4066 grafts. I have had previous procedures of 2800 grafts. Dr. Hasson also said he can harvest another 1000+ grafts in the future if I decided to do so. I seem to have extremely laxity. He said its about 1 in a 100 that has this type of laxity.
The procedure was not painful at all. I was very comfortable through out the day. I was so comfortable i nodded off a few times while they were inserting the grafts. I watched a total of three movies and drank about 6 glasses of apple juice.
Dr. Hasson and his staff are very professional and always asked if I needed anything at all. I got to meet Jotronic and his hair looks much better in persn than in the photos.
The surgery ended at about 7pm and I went to have dinner with my girlfriend at a local restaurant. The next day I went in for a hair wash and headed back to the US. I did have a bit of swelling 2 days after but it only lasted for 1 day.
I am now 10 days post op and feeling great. I can not wait to see the final results.
