Third Procedure: 5 month update (150 days post-op)

Hello everyone,

Today is Saturday, June 17, 2017 and I am now 5 months post-op from my FUE scar revision procedure that I had with Dr. Daniel McGrath in Austin, TX.

I got a haircut two weeks ago on June 3 and it was the shortest haircut I’ve had since this procedure.

The barber used a No.4-guard on the back and sides and then trimmed the bottom of the back of my head to a 2-guard, while I had the front and top blended with scissors.

I noticed a slight crease line on the left part of the back of my head but I’m pretty confident that area will eventually fill in. I’m thinking by one year post-op I should be able to cut my hair comfortably down to a 3-guard on the back and sides but we’ll have to wait and see until next January.

I feel like at this point the hairs in the back of my head where the old suture line is are growing in much faster and thicker than the single hair grafts that were placed in my frontal hairline and left temporal peak.

Although most would be concerned that not much is growing at this point, in my experience at 5 months, I’m about 60 percent of the way through so I have plenty more to grow.

Check back next month in July when I reach 6 months post-op.

All my best,
-Lance

 

Second procedure: 5 month update (152 days post-op)

Hello everyone,

Today is Monday, April 11, 2016 and I am now 5 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.

More hair is gradually growing in behind the grafts from my first procedure so a lot of the thin areas like in my right temple are filling in. From months 4 to 6 the hair finally starts coming in but it comes in very patchy like the hair on your forearms so if it’s your first procedure you won’t be able to style your hair from the new hairline until about 7 months post-op.

As you can tell from my pictures and video I’m not home in Washington, DC as this week I am on vacation in Austin, Texas where I visited my friend and former patient adviser Steve Cook who now works for Dr. Dan McGrath. The best way to reach Steve is steve@mcgrathmedical.com or at 305.416.8418

As I’ve said before, Steve is a fantastic resource for hair transplants and is a wonderful advocate for patients and Dr. McGrath is a wonderful and talented surgeon who also performs the multiple follicular unit procedure like Dr. Huebner.

As much as I praise Dr. Huebner’s work as he’s operated on me twice, he’s not the only qualified surgeon worth looking into to have hair transplant surgery with. I highly recommend Dr. McGrath’s practice as he also performs the strip method with the multiple follicular units just like Dr. Huebner.

I don’t work for any one hair transplant surgeon, I work for you all, the guys (and gals) who are looking to do this surgery so I want to help you all find the best surgeon for your needs and Steve can help point you in the right direction.

Unfortunately it’s more common to get a bad result in this industry than a good one so knowing which surgeons can give you an undetectable and fantastic result can put you on the right path.

Check back next month in May at the 6 month mark.

All my best,

-Lance

5 month update (153 days post-op)

Hi everyone,

Today is December 14, 2014 and I am now 5 months or 153 days post-op.

I’ve seen a little bit more growth since the 4 month mark and right now the new hairs are kind of long but are not very thick, kind of like the hair on my forearms. Even though I’m still styling my hair from my old hairline, it is gradually disappearing.

I expect over the next two months to see some enormous changes in my appearance when the hair really starts coming in and I should be able to style and comb my hair from the recreated hairline.

With the holidays quickly approaching, it feels like Christmas every morning when I wake up to see new hair on my head. Like I said a while back, the hardest part about a hair transplant is all of the waiting you have to do, but great things are finally happening and I couldn’t be happier.

On a side note, Dr. Huebner has started his own practice in West Palm Beach, Fla., called Natural Transplants. Check out their website for more information if you’d like to have a consultation with them.

All my best and happy holidays,

-Lance
