Hello everyone,

Today is Sunday, March 19, 2017 and I am now 2 months and 2 days post-op from my Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) scar revision procedure.

At this stage, not much is happening, which is expected.

The hair on the back and sides surrounding my suture line is still growing out from the day of my procedure and when I run my fingers through the suture line, it feels like a lot of hairs have hung on.

Unfortunately the majority of the grafts placed into my suture line along with the 50 single hair grafts that were place into my left temporal peak and frontal hairline won’t start growing until the 4 month mark come May.

It’s a long process, but having been through this a couple of times, I know it’ll be worth it.

Check back next month in April when I reach 3 months post-op.

All my best,
-Lance

Third Procedure: 1 Month Update (34 Days Post-Op)

Hello everyone,

Today is Monday, February 20, 2017 and I am now 1 month and three days post-op from my follicular unit extraction procedure.

Last week on Saturday, February 11 I got my first haircut since my surgery that blended the top and front of my hair with the back and sides, which are still growing out. You can still kind of make out the linear scar from my second procedure and I feel like a lot of the hairs that were placed into the suture line have hung on since my surgery day.

When looking at my scar, I feel like my left side stretched wider than the right side.

Concerning my left temporal peak and left side of my hairline, the hairs from the day of my surgery have fallen off and there’s almost no sign that I had any hairs transplanted there.

In my previous experiences, it won’t be until month 4 when the transplanted hairs really start coming in so we’ll just have to sit tight.

Check back next month on March 17, when I reach 2 months post-op.

All my best,
-Lance

Hello everyone,

Today is Wednesday, January 25, 2017 and I am now 8 days post-op from my follicular unit extraction procedure.

At this point I am finished with my recovery and am now just waiting for the hair in the back and sides of my head to grow out to cover my scar.

Thank you for following my progress and check back next month on February 17 when I reach one month post-op.

All my best,
-Lance

Hello everyone,

Today is Tuesday, January 24, 2017 and I am now one week post-op from my follicular unit extraction procedure.

All of the crusts that were in my suture line are now gone and tonight was the last time I used the bacitracin on the extraction sites above and around my suture line. A lot of hairs that were placed in the suture line, left temporal peak, and frontal hairline have hung on after the crusts have fallen off, so it’ll be interesting to see if they continue to stay on over the next couple of weeks. Once the hair on the back and sides grows out and covers my scar, I’ll get a haircut to blend everything in.

I think tomorrow will be my last recovery update as I am now waiting for the numbness in parts of the back of my head to subside and I will return to my workout regimen next wee

Check back tomorrow when I reach 8 days post-op.

All my best,
-Lance

Hello everyone,

Today is Monday, January 23, 2017 and I am now 6 days post-op from my follicular unit extraction procedure.

All of the crusts that were in my frontal hairline and left temporal peak are long gone and I feel like I have about a quarter of the crusts left in my suture line. Despite how fast the crusts have fallen off, I feel like a lot of the hairs from those crusts have stayed behind, and I’m still placing the bacitracin on the extraction sites.

One other thing I wanted to mention is that I have some residual numbness on the back-left and back-right parts of my head but the only time I feel it is when I lie down with my head on the ground like when I stretch. I don’t feel any numbness when I sleep.

Check back tomorrow when I reach one week post-op.

All my best,
-Lance

Hello everyone,

Today is Sunday, January 22, 2017 and I am now 5 days post-op from my follicular unit extraction procedure.

My scalp is continuing to heal well and today was the first day I put my head directly underneath the shower head. About half of the crusts in my suture line have fallen off and just about all of the crusts in my left temporal peak and frontal hairline are gone too.

The extraction sites have pretty much healed up by now and I think today will be the last day I use the bacitracin.

Check back tomorrow when I reach 6 days post-op.

All my best,
-Lance

Hello everyone,

Today is Saturday, January 21, 2017 and I am now 4 days post-op from my follicular unit extraction procedure.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, the grafts are really starting to fly off my scalp and at this point I’m not sure if I will even do 10 days’ worth of updates because I doubt the grafts will stay on by then.

The grafts in my left temporal peak have all shed and the grafts in my frontal hairline are just about gone. Meanwhile the grafts in my suture line are still there but many of them are beginning to shed.

I am still washing my grafts with the pads of my fingers and rinsing them with a cup in the shower and the extraction sites have also healed extremely well with the bacitracin.

Check back tomorrow when I reach 5 days post-op.

All my best,
-Lance

Hello everyone,

Today is Friday, January 20, 2017 and I am now three days post-op from my follicular unit extraction procedure.

Compared with my previous FUT/strip surgeries, I’ve noticed the grafts from this FUE procedure are not nearly as large and I think a few of the grafts are beginning to shed, especially in my left temporal peak and left side of my frontal hairline. The grafts in my suture line are still hanging on and I am gently washing them with the pads of my fingers and still using a cup to rinse them in the shower.

The extraction areas in the back of my head are continuing to heal well via the bacitracin and the sites look much better now compared with the day of my surgery.

Check back tomorrow for my Day 4 update.

All my best,
-Lance

Hello everyone,

Today is Thursday, January 19, 2017 and I am now two days post-op from my FUE procedure to fill in my linear scar and touch up my frontal hairline.

The surgeon told me the grafts are healing really well and to continue my post-op regimen.

I am still using the saline spray a few times every hour on the grafts and am still shampooing my grafts with a cup and putting the biatracin on the extraction sites.

My head is still a bit numb especially in the  left-middle side where I had residual numbness from my second linear procedure.

Check back tomorrow for my Day 3 update.

All my best,
-Lance

Hello everyone,

Today is January 18, 2017 and I am now one day post-op from my follicular unit extraction procedure.

This procedure filled in my linear scar from my second FUT/strip procedure and also placed some one-hair grafts in my frontal hairline and left temporal peak.

I had my hair rinsed by the surgeon’s nurses earlier in the day and then had an evening bath where I rinsed my hair with a cup of warm water.

Once a day I will use bacitracin on the extraction sites and will spray my grafts 4 to 5 times an hour with saline solution.

It was also my first night after the surgery and although a bit uncomfortable, it wasn’t nearly as bad as my previous two strip procedures.

Check back tomorrow at two days post-op.

All my best,
-Lance
