Today is June 11, 2016 and I am now 7 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.
After the 4 month mark when you start seeing initial growth, the 7 month mark is another exciting time in the hair transplant process. Last time at 7 months I got my first haircut that blended the newly developing hairline with my natural hair and I couldn’t have been happier.
This time around I see a lot of new growth and density, especially in the weak areas of my temples. I haven’t had a haircut since April 30th so I’m a little cautious about how short I can get the back and sides done without a small crease line showing up. As I mentioned in last month’s update, my scar has stretched a little bit but that has more to do with my scalp’s flexibility and weight training habits than Dr. Huebner. My friend Jeff who had two procedures with Dr. Brett Bolton told me his second scar stayed pretty thin despite his weight training habits, so if anything it really depends on the patient.
In other news one of my followers Aaron had his first procedure a month ago on May 12 and has written his own hair transplant blog called Follow My Hair. If you get a chance, definitely check out his blog.
Check back next month in July at the 8 month mark.
All my best,
