3744 FUT Write-up Surgery Date 01/17/12

Surgey took place on January 17th 2012 and 3,744 grafts were transplanted. The grafts breakdown was 751 ones, 2292 twos, 701 threes. Total hair was 7,438. The surgery started around 9 a.m. and finished after 4 p.m.

Dr. Rahal and his staff were amazing and it was a very easy and smooth procedure. I would rather go through that experience than go to the dentist. Dr. Rahal measured my head and told me that he was going to design a hairline and that we can adjust it, but I looked at what he had drawn and did not make any changes. I didn’t even show him any previous pictures. I was amazed! I asked him if we needed to do any temple work and he said my temples were fine. He said that my hair shafts are pretty thick so I should see some good density once the final results come. I then went in for pre-op pictures, then to the operating room and was given a tranquilizer which I didnt even notice the shot. My head was then shaved and then the numbing shots came. These really are not bad at all just a minor discomfort but nothing to discourage anyone. The strip was taken out and sutured by Dr. Rahal I would say in less than a half an hour and I couldn’t feel a thing. The next step was the incisions and this is where the skills and genius of Dr. Rahal come into play. You do not feel anything but you will hear a crunching noise each time he pokes the scalp. I then watched two movies while the planting took place which took close to five hours I believe. The staff is very efficient and they made sure I was comfortable the whole time. I had to get numbing shots a few times throughout the planting process.

Overall great experience as far as surgery and post-op care were by the clinic. I am just hoping like any person that has just had this procedure that I achieve good results in the end. I am not taking any Propecia or Finastride as I would rather just have surgeries to correct my hairloss and do not feel like taking a drug for the rest of my life. I will go back to Dr. Rahal in the future as I feel he is one of the best in world at his job, and I feel that I am in good hands when I am at his clinic. Mike his head nurse is AWESOME!
