2 month update (71 days post-op)

Hello everyone,

Today is September 23, 2014 and I am now two months and 9 days or 71 days post-op.

More hairs are sprouting in the frontal hairline and temporal peaks but they look very whispy and don’t have much density yet. Some of the original hairs that were moved the day of the surgery never fell out and are super long now.

I’ve heard that if you have super long transplanted hairs that did not shed and have stopped growing, you can pluck them out and the follicle will restart and grow again. I haven’t tried this yet, but if some of the original hairs haven’t grown much over the next month I will consider doing this.

The transplanted area is still pink but is becoming less noticeable from when I first started.

Since my surgery I’ve had one haircut and about 10 ingrown hairs mostly in the recreated frontal hairline and a few on the suture line itself. The suture line is becoming less red and unless I run my fingers through my hair, you wouldn’t find it.

I’ll keep updating this as more hair grows so check back for my next update at 3 months post-op.

All my best,

-Lance

    Hi Lance,

    Great blog to document your progress. My name is Ivan from California and I also had my hair transplant done by Dr. Matt Huebner last March 4 of this year. My 7th month is coming up in a matter of days and I couldn’t be any happier with my results. I know the the feeling of excitement and waiting when you wake up everyday and check your progress. I know there are ups and downs here and there but I see so much positive spirit on you just like me and this would help you handle the experience better. My hair transplant were all done in the front and with the technique used by our doctor, the density and thickness are now really noticeable. There is still moderate thinness on the top middle part but when I look closely, I see a lot of small hairs growing so I’m not worried and just excited how I will look come Christmas time. Just like what you’ve mentioned it started with tiny white micro hairs but it became thicker as days went by.
    As prescribed, I am taking Finasteride 3x/week, Rogaine foam 2x a day, hair vitamins every day and I also bought Theradome Laser and use it 2-3x a week. I truly believe the combination of all of these made my progress even better. I need to support and save my other non transplanted hairs that’s why I am taking and doing these religiously. My suture line is hardly to be seen now unless you point it out and look very closely. My scalp where the hairs were transplanted looks better though sometimes I see small red rashes. I’ve also been using Nizoral 2-3x/week and it solved this and made my scalp healthier.

    People who have not seen me are always puzzled saying I look so much different now in a positive way and I know this wouldn’t be possible without God’s help and making Great Hair Transplant as an instrument to help me gain back my image and confidence. Just like what I’ve mentioned to Josh, this is one of the best investments I’ve given to myself. It is quite indeed a long process but I’m very sure you will also have a home run and I will vouch for that.

    Lance and Ivan,

    Thank you for the positive remarks. It’s nice to hear about the progress Ivan! I’m glad you are happy. Lance, you are truly doing a great service to anyone thinking about having a procedure done. As I tell all of my patients, it’s a process–but it will definitely pay off in the end!

    Looking forward to seeing your progress.

    Sincerely

    Dr. Matt Huebner

    Hi Lance,
    This is a great record of your journey mate. I’ve been wanting to do this for years, but never been able to afford it. I first spotted GHT on the web after researching places closer to home (in the UK and Ireland). But then I lost my job and since then I’ve not been able to pull together the funds. It will happen though. Just not yet.
    The work they do there is the best I’ve seen. There’s no BS in their videos and the results I see are just the best (and believe me I know… I’ve been researching it for LOOOONG time). I think I’m the main post-er on the GHT Youtube channel. Amazing work.
    Anyway, look forward to seeing the final destination of your journey 🙂 And hopefully, when I get round to doing mine, I’ll do the same (write a blog that is)… doing this blog is – as Dr Huebner states – a great service for those thinking (or worrying) about doing this.
    Many thanks
    Doug

      Hi Doug, I hope you are doing well across the pond! Thank you so much for your comment and well wishes. Today is exactly 3 months post-op and I will post another update tomorrow as more hairs are slowly coming in. I hope everything works out for you financially so you can have this surgery too. If you ever have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.

      All my best,

      -Lance
