Third Procedure: 2 month update (61 days post-op)

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 with Dr. Daniel McGrath in Austin, TX.

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

Second procedure: 2 month update (61 days post-op)

Hello everyone,

Today is Monday, January 11, 2016 and I am now two months post-op from my second hair transplant procedure on November 11, 2015 with Dr. Matthew Huebner of Natural Transplants in Fort Lauderdale, Fla..

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year.

At the two month mark, my natural hair and grafts from my first procedure are finally growing out and I have a few little spuds from my second procedure that are just starting to grow. My hair in the back is now long enough to cover my suture line and it healed really well due to my prolonged absence from lifting weights and working out.

I also resumed lifting weights today for the first time in 2 months and overall I felt really well moving around and lifting again. I still have some residual numbness on my left and left-middle parts of the back of my head so it’s only a matter of time before I regain feeling there. I lost about 12 pounds of muscle over the past two months and I am following Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength program to help me get back to my baseline strength and gain some of that weight back.

Looking ahead, this year I will turn 30 years old and like I said last year at this time, I don’t ever have to worry about going bald or losing any more hair for the rest of my life.

It’s a new year, a new me, and we’re off to a great start.

Check back next month at 3 months post-op.

All my best,

-Lance

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
