I have been posting many years here, on and off. I have had two FUE procedures and a few strips, going back almost 30 years, all with different doctors. My last three procedures were with doctors who are all very well known on this site. I believe all three are very skilled.
I wanted to comment about the last procedure I had, and I have mixed feelings about it.
When I was prepping for the procedure, a nurse gave me a shot, and told me it was to relax me. It actually put me completely out for hours. Frankly, I was ok with being out and not dealing with the unpleasantness of the local injections and the boredom of sitting while people are cutting up my scalp, but even now when I think about it, I’m still a little shocked that it was not discussed with me first.
Second, when I woke up, I was laying backwards in the chair, with my head almost completely unsupported. I think the edge of the chair probably supported my lower neck a bit. The doctor would have me turn my head to one side or the other. You can imagine how awkward this is on your spine to have your head hanging over the edge at an angle for any length of time, while you are otherwise flat on your back. When I shifted my body to better align it with my dangling head, the doctor got annoyed with me!
Anyway, I’m still mostly in the dormant phase, so I don’t know what the ultimate result will be, but I sense, given my long experience with such procedures, the doctor was very skilled at extraction, and placement didn’t include my hairline, so artistic placement was less of an issue for this procedure.
I am not giong to mention the name of the doctor, because, even given the foregoing, I might go back for a touch up, depending on the result. But sometimes, you just have to wonder WTF some people are thinking…
Anyway, that’s my rant for today.
