Third Procedure: Day 1 Post-Op (1/18/2017)

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

Second Procedure: Surgery Day November 11, 2015

Hello everyone,

Today is November 11, 2015 and I am immediately post-op from my second hair transplant procedure.

The procedure took about 5 hours to complete and lowered my hairline again, built out the temporal peaks, and removed the old scar that didn’t heal well. Overall I got 36.675 square centimeters of tissue and if you consider the scar tissue from my first suture line, I got about 6,500 total hairs in my second procedure.

I’ll later share with you all some of my pre-operative pics that show my old suture line as well as the marker line that mapped out the new hairline.

Starting tomorrow I will post pics and videos of each day of my recovery, so check out tomorrow’s update at Day 1 post-op.

All my best,

-Lance
