Merry Christmas everyone!  Notice the difference between these two pictures taken during the Holiday season a few years apart.

This picture was taken recently at a local restaurant in Louisville Kentucky.  It's been 11+ years since my surgery and everything still looks great!  My wife Michele is a hairdresser and has not seen any discernible hair loss in the recipient areas.

Wow!  What a difference.  The picture on the left was taken a couple years ago but it still looks the same today.

I'm often asked about scarring after surgery.  Dr. Vories used a 0.8mm punch and there is no visible scarring. This short video shows how well my donor area has recovered and clearly shows no evidence of scarring.  This picture was taken just prior to my 2nd surgery and you really don't see any discernible scarring even with my head shaved.  Dr. Vories had removed over 1,750 grafts from this outlined area two years prior.

Thanks Dr. Vories!

This is why you need to consider Carolina Hair Surgery and Dr. Vories!  Wow, what a transformation!

I haven't posted these pictures in a long time.  The first picture was taken at the International Hair Restoration conference (Bahamas) five weeks after my surgery in 2012.  The second picture was at the same conference three years later (Chicago).  The surgeons examining me were amazed at my donor area and potential for another surgery.

I'm often asked about whether I've experienced any additional balding after my surgery in 2012.  My wife is a hairdresser and cuts my hair about every 6 weeks.  She tells me she has seen NO discernible hair loss in my recipient areas.  I had over 7,000 grafts transplanted.  Check out the before and after below.  Wow, what a difference!

I've received a couple emails recently asking what they should expect during their first year after surgery.  I've included a photo showing progress over the first year after my initial surgery in 2012 followed by a photo taken later which clearly shows how the hair thickens over time.  Everyone's growth rate is different but I wanted to show you my experience.

I haven't posted this video for quite a while.  It's my "Mega-Session" from back in 2012.  At the time it was believed to be the largest FUE procedure ever done over 3 days.  Now it's routine to do this in two days.  Pretty amazing process.  This video has been viewed on YouTube over 74,000 times.

Someone on the Hair Restoration Network mentioned Dr. Vories as a "Rock-Star" in the industry.  As you know he performed my surgery 10 years ago.  I'm posting this video I found on Dr. Vories Carolina Hair Surgery website to provide context regarding FUT vs. FUE.

This picture was taken on New Year's Eve at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Ky.  The other picture was a New Year's celebration prior to my transplant in 2012.
