Hi all,
I’ve followed many of the reputable hair loss forums for the last 13 years and found them very informative and useful. I’ve decided to share my experience to try to help others as I know first hand how difficult losing hair can be.
After years of research, I had a FUE procedure with Dr Bisanga/BHR almost 1 month ago and have included some pictures of the first few weeks progress below for ref. I chose to go with Dr Bisanga because of his reputation and consistent results. Naturally, I’m hoping for a good result too. A bit about me:
Background:
·         40 years old from London
·         Been taking Minoxidil and Finasteride for 13 years
·         Had previous FUE procedure 10 years ago (aged 30) to address receding hairline, results were average/OK but I was never completely satisfied
·         Hair loss has stabilised over the last 10 years
Current goals:
·         Add density to front which is relatively thin in comparison to my native hair and has required concealer/styling to look more natural over the last 10 years
·         Add density to a small thinning area in the crown
My BHR experience:
The procedure itself was relatively pain free and done in 1 day - but it all requires a lot of personal planning and, at least for me, there was a lot of anxiety beforehand. I decided not to tell anyone about the procedure which presents quite a lot of challenges with work, family, friends etc. It’s no walk in the park, and you have to be patient before you can fully get back to ‘normal’ life afterwards. I’ve had a really good experience with the BHR clinic so far – no problems with the procedure and the after care and communication with Daniel (the clinic’s consultant) has been great.
I’m now almost 1 month post op and will be posting updates over the next few months so you can see my progress. Any questions, let me know, I’ll be happy to answer wherever possible.

Hi Ace, thanks for sharing your story with us. The work looks nice and clean, this should produce a very nice result. The small crown area that was transplanted, is this where your whorl is?
I`ll look forward to seeing your updates.
All the best.
Bm.

Hi Bigmac, yes, the area at the back is my whorl. Approx 200-300 grafts were placed in that area (all 3s and 4s). Thanks, Ace

Thanks for the clarification, it's quite common for the whorl to begin thinning first.

Bigmac - the meds have worked well and stabilised my hair loss over the last 13 years. Here are a selection of pics at 1 month (1 with flash; 2 without - at different angles). My native hair has thinned out considerably and overall generally does not look good - I'm definitely in the 'ugly duckling phase' now and wearing a cap or hat whenever I leave the house.

Congrats Ace. Looks like good work. I always think session sizes around these yield better too.

Did any of your colleagues or friends notice anything? You don't appear to have much redness. Sometimes keeping it short until the growth kicks in can work in hiding the shedding areas.

Congrats Ace, do you have any pre op pictures with your hair a little longer?Ugly duckling stage is tough, but it will be worth it.

Hi,
Thanks for the messages. Some more details about my procedure. I had 1613 grafts and also PRP - the breakdown was:
135 (1 hair)552 (2 hair)773 (3 hair)153 (4 hair)
TOTAL: 4170 hairs
Boberto - I've been wearing a hat or cap whenever out of the house so my friends have't noticed anything. I've been avoiding socialising in the evenings for the last month which hasn't been easy but I chose this approach as I want to keep the HT to myself. I figure a few months out of the loop, whilst difficult (and a bit depressing at times), isn't too bad in the grand scheme of things. IMO this is probably the best time of year to get a HT as it's cold and pretty normal to be wearing a hat, so it's a bit easier to go 'under the radar'. At 5 weeks post-op, the redness has pretty much faded - my left temple (where grafts were placed into the hairline) and the small area in my crown are still very slightly pink. It hasn't been too much of any issue as the majority of grafts were place in areas where there was pre-existing native/transplanted hair - so it was much less visible than EG a completely bald/virgin area of scalp. The PRP may have also helped.
ndubya - Sure, I will dig out some pics in the next couple of days. Yes, I really hope it will be worth it. Dr Bisanga's previous work looks excellent. Stingray and Johnnydrama, as well as countless other BHR patients on this forum and others, really inspired me and gave me the confidence to go through with the procedure. I hope that by sharing my experience I might help others in their decision making.

Good to hear the meds are working. The ugly duckling phase passes before you know it and try not to worry as I`m sure you`ll have a good result.
