My final procedure - Strip and FUE combo hair transplant


#1

Hi, everyone,
now I have another appointment for June, 2nd 2009.
This will be my 4th appointment and is the final procedure for HT in zone 4. After that I will have restored my full head of hair.
This time the results in zone 1, 2 and 3 are great. But there is still a little thinning area in zone 4. And that is what I am going to do, another 2000 grafts for zone 4.
I keep you updated.
I also be very glad to see Toronto again, bacause it is a great City and I could imagine to live there. But normally I am located in Germany.
If anyone wants to know more about my HT procedures, please ask.

The doctor is Alvi Armani Clinic in Toronto.
The status was: Nearly no hair in zone 1 and 2 and thinning hair in zone 3 and 4.
1st appointment: I got more than 3000 grafts in zone 1 to create the hairline.
2nd appointment: I got more than 2000 grafts in zone 2 to fill up between the new hair in zone 1 and the zone 3.
3rd appointment: I got another 3000 grafts to increase the density in zone 1 and 2.
That is the point where I am now. Really good. 4th appointment and final procedure will be, to fill up a thinning area in zone 4.

Did they tell you upfront in the very beginning that that you will need to travel to them 4 times in order to complete everything for you? It’s a big hassle.

Hi, Leo,
of course they did. It was also written in the paper (contract) they gave to me.
But I thought to me: Lets start with the first procedure and see how it goes.
The most important thing for me was… to see if the procedure fulfill my expectation. Regarding the density and the natural look. Otherwise I had stopped after the first procedure. Many people in my home town say some month after procedure: "Oh, wonderful your new hair. Looks very natural and it makes you younger. So I felt supported in my own opinion to continue.

Hi Ernst,

Your pics look great, did I count it correctly? You will have a total of 10,000 grafts after the 4th procedure?

Yea, that’s what it looks like to me, 10000 grafts in total, how is that possioble for a norwood 6 (I assume he is a norwood 6 from the before pics)?

It can’t be 10K grafts fue, I bet he had a strip or strip/fue combo.

Good point, he didn’t mention, but 10,000 is a big number even for strip, Ernst can you tell us whether you had fue or strip?

Hey ernst,

Congrats man. I had four seperate procedures myself for 6900 grafts total. How many total grafts will it be for you? Best wishes to you!

Ernst, your hair looks pretty good, you don’t even need a 4th surgery if you ask me. When you have your next surgery can you ask Armani to take some pictures of your donor?

After shaving or before? Or do you mean after surgery?

You have calculated right. 10000 grafts in total. But what is a norwood 6?

The first two appointments in 2004 and 2006 have been fuss (strip) surgerys.

I had strip in 2004 (3402 grafts) and 2006 (2297grafts). The 3rd surgery was a fue surgery with 3015 grafts.
