Today is Wednesday, May 11, 2016 and I am now 6 months post-op from my second hair transplant procedure that I had on November 11, 2015 with Dr. Matthew Huebner of Natural Transplants in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
At 6 months post-op more hair is gradually filling in the temporal peaks and temples where my recession used to be and I’m pretty happy with how things look and there’s only 6 more months of growth to go.
I got another haircut on Saturday, April 30 and the barber used a No.5 guard on the back and sides and then lightly trimmed it with a comb and clippers to go a little shorter.
Last month when I visited my friend Steve Cook and Dr. Daniel McGrath in Austin, Texas, I had Dr. McGrath examine my scalp and he had a lot of great things to say about the work Dr. Huebner did on me. One thing he brought to my attention was that my scalp’s natural flexibility and weight training habits can lend my scar to stretching some but if it is something that really bothers me I can either have the scar cut out and I could be stitched together again via trichophytic closure or I can have my linear scar filled in via FUE. At this point it is a little too early to tell if I’ll need that but it’s good to know that if it really does bother me it can be corrected.
If you’d like to get in touch with Steve, the best way to reach him is firstname.lastname@example.org or at 305.416.8418.
Check back next month in June at the 7 month mark.
All my best,
