1 Year & 51 Weeks since My FUE Hair Transplant

On Monday September 15th I will be leaving for Charleston to visit Carolina Hair Surgery and Dr. Vories!  It will be two years after my first surgery!  The plan at this point is to spend one full day moving about 2,000 grafts!  Dr. Vories wants to fill in some areas that are thin near my hair line and an area a couple inches behind it. I'm really looking forward to the trip and will include many new pictures of my progress.  For now...I'm including a "screenshot" ...before and after picture from my cell phone.

1 Year & 49 Weeks since My FUE Hair Transplant

BIG NEWS!!!


This September it will be two years since I had the 5,000+ graft surgery!  Dr. Vories and I have decided to do a little more surgery!  On September 16th I'm scheduled to have about 2,000 more grafts transplanted.  Most of the grafts are going to fill in part of the front that didn't fill in as well as expected after the first surgery.  I have an area which is not easy to see in most pictures but is evident to me.  I call it the "crescent moon" affect just above my hairline.  Some of those grafts may have dried out too quickly or were transected and didn't grow.  Dr. Vories has since developed a new process has been very successful alleviating that issue.

Today I'm posting a couple of photos Dr. Vories took while we visited in his home town of Carrolton Kentucky about 50 miles from where I live in Louisville.  In the second picture you can see what I call the "crescent moon".  It's only obvious when I bend my head forward.

1 Year & 46 Weeks since My FUE Hair Transplant Surgery

Several weeks ago Dr. Vories was in Kentucky and visited his home town of Carrollton which is only about 50 miles from Louisville, which is where I live.  He called me and invited me to lunch and wanted to see my hair.  It was the first time he has seen it other than my blog pictures since we were invited to the International Hair Surgery convention in the Bahamas five weeks after my surgery in October of 2012.

He was very pleased with my progress but was not entirely happy with an area near the front.  He also shared with me that a great majority of his consultations have been viewing my blog on a regular basis for a long time.  Because of this and the fact that so many patients have had surgery partly based on my results, he offered to "thicken-up" an area near the front.  He called me the next week and said he had an opening in September and would like to spend that day filling in some areas that appeared thin to him.  Since he made the offer, I quickly accepted and plan to spend a day at Carolina Hair Surgery in September!

Dr. Vories also took a few pictures that day in Carrollton.  I'm posting one of those pictures today along with another photo Dr. Vories took the day of the surgery in 2012.

1 Year & 44 Weeks since My FUE Hair Transplant Surgery

Dr. Vories used a machine manufactured by NeoGraft to extract my donor hair grafts.  This machine uses a .8 mm punch to remove the graft, hydrate it, and store it until its transplanted.  Remember, Dr. Vories extracted and implanted 5,125 grafts over a four day period.  NeoGraft contacted Dr. Vories and asked permission to use my "before" and "after" pictures for the banner of their national website.  Below is a screenshot of the front page of NeoGrafts website.

1 Year & 38 Weeks Since My FUE Hair Transplant

Today is Memorial Day and I would like to thank all veterans for their service to our country, including my 83 year old dad who served during the Korean War.


For this post, I would like to step back and remind you what I looked like the day of the surgery in September, 2012.  Dr. Vories made this video minutes before starting my surgery.  You can see the great transformation in the other picture that NeoGraft uses for their national website.  NeoGraft created the machine that extracted my grafts and is still using my before and after photos as a banner on their website.
