Post Op Pics with Dr. Rahal’s Design

Surgery date: Jan. 9, 2014

Total Graphs – 3275

Total hairs – 6113.  1 unit = 1086, 2 unit = 1632, 3 unit = 555, 4 unit = 2

The below pic is Dr. Rahal’s design.  I wasn’t going to dispute it.  He is after all the Hairline King.  I’ve seen clients on this and other sites with a similar recession and their outcomes have been nothing short of outstanding.  I hope the trend continues for me.

Below is post op pic day 1. I must have looked at my skull for 20 minutes right after Mike removed the bandages.  I’ve seen enough post op shots to last me a life time but when it’s your own skull, it’s a little off-putting. The swelling alone is very noticeable when compared to the previous pic.  If looking like this means I get a Superman hairline in a year then sign me up every time.

I’m not going to lie to you, numbness, tightness and discomfort was quite evident my first night.  Plus, sleeping at a 45 degree angle is not something I’m use to. I took a Tylenol 3 which I’m sure helped but still didn’t make it  an uneventful night.   I did manage between 4 to 5 hours sleep.  I was able to nap the next day which helped.  I didn’t take any pain killers on my second night because thankfully by that time most of the discomfort had subsided.

The below pics illustrate the side views.  I’m glad Dr. Rahal put grafts along the side as I felt they were getting a little thin.  He must have felt the same way too lol.   I’m just glad this part of my journey is over.
