Today is Saturday, November 21, 2015 and I am now 10 days post-op from my hair transplant procedure on November 11 with Dr. Matthew Huebner of Natural Transplants in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Earlier this evening I picked the last crust that was hanging on and after I pulled it out a lot of blood came out with it. I thought that I permanently lost that graft but Dr. Huebner reassured me that the cells from the follicle’s bulb are firmly in place so hair will still grow out of that one spot. Word to wise, don’t pick your grafts!
Last time at the 10 days post-op mark I had my sutures removed but when you have two or more procedures, you must wait at least 12 days post-op to have the sutures removed.
I remember saying to myself last time I did this at the 10 day mark I don’t think I would’ve been able to do two more days of this but here I am a year later and I need to have them in for two more days.
All of the crusts are gone now and I joke that without the crusts and my natural hair super long, this is what I would have ended up looking like had I not done anything about my hair loss.
Check back tomorrow at the 11 day mark.
All my best,
