Second procedure: 1 month update (30 days post-op)

Hello everyone,

Today is Friday, December 11, 2015 and I am now one month post-op from my second hair transplant procedure on November 11 with Dr. Matthew Huebner of Natural Transplants in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

After one month, not a whole lot is happening. I have some initial growth in the frontal hairline but not much else is growing from my second procedure. My regular hair and grafts from my first procedure are still growing out since my buzzcut on November 23  and the suture line has healed beautifully. For the past three weeks I’ve worn a baseball cap at work and ever so slowly the hair around my suture line is growing out to eventually cover it up.

As I’ve said before, you must refrain from any heavy lifting or rigorous exercise for at least a month after your procedure so that the suture line can properly heal. I’ve been more conservative in my recovery in that I will resume lifting weights a month after my suture removal, so in the meantime I walk about 20,000 steps a day (about 10 miles) to stay in some level of shape.

In my extended absence from the gym I’ve lost about 11 pounds of muscle from just not working out.

Check back next month at 2 months post-op after we ring in the new year.

Happy holidays and all my best,

-Lance

First haircut since surgery (46 days post-op)

Hello everyone,

Today is August 29 and I am now one month and two weeks or 46 days post-op.

I got my first haircut today since my surgery, and below are some pictures.

I normally get a No. 4 on the back and sides and then I have the top and front blended in with scissors.

My scalp where the frontal hairline and temporal peaks were recreated is still a bit pink like I have a sunburn and some of the original hairs that didn’t shed are quite long while many of the micro hairs and two-hair grafts are sprouting.

The suture line is still really red but it blends in with the rest of the back of my scalp. Unless you knew what you were looking for, you couldn’t find my suture line by simply looking at my head.

My first hair cut since the surgery shows how much I really hated my old hairline and how excited I am for all of the new hair to grow in over the next few months.

When it comes to a hair transplant, you’re always waiting.

You’re waiting to have the surgery. You’re sitting in a chair during the surgery. You’re waiting for the crusts to come off and the sutures to be removed, and then you’re waiting for all of the hair to grow in.

It’s a process that takes quite a long time, but I know it’ll all be worth it.

Check back soon for my next update at 2 months.

All my best,

-Lance

1 month update (31 days post-op)

Hello everyone,

Today is August 14 and I am exactly one month or 31 days post-op from my surgery with Dr. Huebner.

Surprisingly I have a lot of hairs from the original grafts still in and some one-hair micrografts have started to grow as well.

My scalp where the grafts were transplanted is a little pink and looks like I have a sunburn, but I don’t think anyone would notice it unless I point it out. I’ve had two ingrown hairs in the transplanted area since my surgery and they haven’t been a problem. I still feel a little numb in the top of my scalp where many of the larger, slit grafts were placed but I was told that some numbness and redness can last a few months after surgery.

The suture line is healing well and I am back to my normal routine of working out, riding my bike, and playing sports and there is no tightness in the suture line.

I haven’t had a haircut since my surgery as the scalp next to the suture line that was shaved but not excised is growing, so I will wait until the trimmed hair around the suture line is a decent length so my haircut will blend everything in.

Check back soon for my next update.

All my best,

-Lance

Note: Later in 2014 Dr. Huebner created his own practice called Natural Transplants.
