Third Procedure: 9 month update (274 days post-op)

Hello everyone,

Today is Wednesday, October 18, 2017 and I am now 9 months post-op from my Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) scar revision procedure with Dr. Daniel McGrath in Austin, TX.

Last Saturday, October 14, I decided to experiment with a 3.5-guard around the scar, a 2-guard below the scar, and had the top and front blended with scissors. To my delight, there was no noticeable crease line around my entire suture line!

I’m pretty sure I could have even cut it down to a 3-guard, but I will experiment with that next month and going forward up to one year post-op in January 2018.

In my previous experiences at 9 months post-op, I have often said if I do not get any more hair I am usually happy, but there is still plenty of growth to go.

On a side note, I’m noticing that I can’t get the temporal peaks cut at the same length as the back and sides of my scalp where the suture line is. The reason for this is because when Dr. Huebner did my two strip procedures, he created the temporal peaks with a lot of the multiple follicular units. Although it’s good that they create a very thick, dense look when they grow out, unfortunately when cut too short, my peaks look pluggy.

Once I reach one year post-op from this procedure and I have Dr. McGrath examine my scalp, I might consider doing another FUE procedure to clean up my temporal peaks and soften up my hairline.

I know some people might say that I don’t need another surgery, and compared with what I looked like before my surgeries to what I look like now, I think most would be very happy with what I have.

But to be honest, I’m the one who wears this every day, I’m my own worst critic, and I want to make sure this is perfect.

Check back next month in November when I reach 10 months post-op.

All my best,

Second procedure: 9 month update (274 days post-op)

Hello everyone,

Today is Thursday, August 11, 2016 and I am now 9 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.

As the months continue to fly by, I am just so happy with how much more hair continues to grow in, justifying why I did the second procedure.

I had my most recent haircut on July 24 and decided to do a No.4 guard on the back and sides. I was very pleased that I didn’t have any sort of a crease line in the back of my head so I’ll continue cutting my hair that short from now on.

A year ago at this time after I celebrated the one year post-op mark from my first procedure, the scar on the right-middle side of the back of my head was a lot wider than the left side so whenever I got a haircut I couldn’t go shorter than a 5-guard without the crease line showing up.

In other news due to popular demand, I’ve done some hair styling videos solely for the YouTube channel so check them out when you get a chance!

Check back next month at the 10 month mark.

All my best,
-Lance

9 month update (275 days post-op)

Hello everyone,

Today is April 15, 2015 and I am now 9 months or 275 days post-op.

As each month goes by, I am just amazed at how much hair continues to grow in.

Since the 7 month mark I’ve been styling and combing my hair from the new hairline, however some parts behind my temples are slightly patchy but are filling in. Because of this some hairstyles look much better on me than others so my temples won’t look thin.

At this point  I have another 3 months to go before I reach the final result but I am more than satisfied with what I have.

To give you all an idea of what the hair transplant timeline is like, from months 1 to 4 post-op you’re just looking for the new hairs to start sprouting up and then from months 5 to 7 you start to see a lot of growth to where you can start styling your hair from the new hairline. From months 8 to 12 and even up to 15 months, you’re then waiting for it all to fill in.

Check back next month at 10 months post-op for my next update.

All my best,

-Lance
