Theluckyllama (aka exante) shares his Rahal Hair Transplant Diary and Photos

Theluckyllama, a Rahal patient, shared his hair transplant photos with the members of the Hair Restoration Network forums, a free, 3rd party resource for hair loss sufferers to share their hair transplant stories. He also posted his diary to our site under the name exante. This story is his and we’ve supplied no clinical photos. All images you see here were supplied by Theluckyllama/exante in his forum thread and hair transplant diary.

Theluckyllama ten months after his FUE procedure with Dr. Rahal

Theluckyllama had been losing his hair since he was 18. With a deep receding frontal area that left him with only a forelock, Theluckyllama couldn’t style his hair the way he wanted to. With his 30th birthday coming up, he decided to do something about it.

FUE was the way to go.

In February of 2013, Theluckyllama underwent a 2600 graft FUE procedure with Dr. Rahal. On his personal blog (under the name exante), he wrote “I got home last night after 6 days in Ottawa getting a long awaited HT with Dr. Rahal & his team. To put it simply my experience was amazing. Every member of Dr. Rahal’s team is not only professional and incredible at what they all do, but they’re wonderful people who do everything they can to make your surgery as comfortable as possible.”

He’d heard about the VIP guest house from other’s hair transplant stories on the forums. It made travelling a cinch.

“If you’re going to go to Ottawa to get your HT done, there’s no better place to stay.”

Rahal’s commitment to patient services leads a lot of out-of-town patients to decide to stay at the guesthouse, and Theluckyllama was no different. Many of our travelling patients benefit from recovering privately. Without hotel guests to make them feel like their standing out, and other patients sharing the same hair transplant experience, Theluckyllama felt comfortable and welcomed.

Just like his review of everybody on the Rahal team, Theluckyllama felt that the Rahal guest house delivered: “I came down expecting to feel like I was all on my own, but having that camaraderie with another HT patient and bonding while at the house was freakin fantastic.”

“If you’re going to go to Ottawa to get your HT done, there’s no better place to stay. It provides you with a no judgement atmosphere where you can socialize with other patients of Dr. Rahal. And let me tell you, having that camaraderie is fantastic.”

“It’s about 3 minutes from Dr Rahal’s office on foot, and I can not mention enough how great it is to be able to get up early and go to the clinic for a worry free cleaning days after your surgery, without worrying about transportation or cabs. Mahesh the owner is an incredible guy that made sure I had every need looked after while I stayed there. It’s worth every penny!”

“My Work Looks Amazing. It’s Going to be a Masterpiece.”

“For those of you guys who question the validity of FUE, I am happy to be the person to evaporate that mentality. Dr. Rahal & Team are truly masters of the game.”

At five months, Theluckyllama posted a small update: “I hit 5 months exactly yesterday, so I thought I would snap a couple photos real quick. This is with some product in my hair (which I am uber stoked about). Can still not quite believe the transformation in the last 2 months. With month 6-8 coming, I expect it will be even better, and quite honestly if this was the final result, I would still be thrilled!”

“I can not say enough positive things about Dr. Rahal and his staff. My work looks amazing and as the doc said himself it’s going to be a ‘Masterpiece’.”

Other members of the forum were supportive of Theluckyllama. Shampoo was the first to respond, saying “Congrats. Dr. Rahal does outstanding work. Happy growing!”

agenteye joined in: “Congrats buddy. You were in good hands indeed. That is a CRAZY number of 4’s [four-hair follicles] that you got out of your procedure! Those with the 3’s you got will help you out TREMENDOUSLY! Before you know it you will have a full head!”

Theluckyllama signed off that update with: “For those of you guys who question the validity of FUE, I am happy to be the person to evaporate that mentality. Dr. Rahal & Team are truly masters of the game.”

Nearly a year later, he was showing what a successful hair transplant really looks like

If his half-year update was impressive, Theluckyllama hadn’t shown anybody yet. At 10 months, he posted another update. “It’s been a long while since I updated. I’m now at 10 months and I really can’t say anything except my life has been transformed,” he said, completely satisfied with his incredibly successful hair transplant. He shared more photos, including the ones at the beginning of this article.

Theluckyllama showing what real results look like — five months was impressive, but it was nothing compared to this!

“Believe me when I tell you that I feel like my appearance has completely transformed. I can now wear my hair in a number of styles, and I have been trying out different haircuts. Dr. Rahal did such an amazing job that my temple area actually naturally curls the way it used to.”
