I finally did it! I was on Propecia for 10 years I believe it dramatically slowed down my loss ( no side effect),I had a 1 year break because i got freaked out by all the stuff I read online but then went back on Propeica.

So, Biotin, pumpkin seed tablets, laser comb, minox for the rest.

My hair loss pattern is not even which is also not unusual. So anyone with uneven hair loss, hopefully my post helps.

After months of research and coming out of a long term relationship I thought Its better I get the HT now while I am single then I can jump back in the game with confidence haha. Hopefully it pay's off

So I decided on Lupanzula. A number of factors went into my decision. I was in the range of 2200-2660 so got an extra 63 grafts in the top end.

Literally finished surgery a few hours ago so this post is fresssssh - Fingers Crossed. I will post monthly updates. I pledge not to ghost once's I start seeing results.

Dr. Lupanzula is a fantastic HT surgeon and I think your photos look great. He's one of the masters of donor area management. I"m looking forward to your updates and thanks for sharing.

Your new hair shape looks good. How did you find the actual surgery? Was there any discomfort or pain involved? Will keep an eye out for your updates.
The Surgery was good. The only pain is the anaesthetic needles which is about 5mins of jabbing away haha. After that it is a relaxing experience. I feel asleep and was snoring at one point... haha awkward.

Dr Lupanzula is great, such a humble guy. I also got PRP injection which i think is helping the healing.

Today my head is a little swollen which is obviously normal but overall the healing looks good. However it is just day 2.

The anaesthetic must be good stuff then if you actually managed to nod off during a surgery. Reading around healing seams to be very quick from FUE surgeries. Would you say it's a relatively easy thing to go through then?

Thanks for answering my question It has helped.

The whole surgery is painless. Everyone is different at healing. For me the Dr said I had high Vasc....something. I forgot the word but basically I was bleeding more than a normal patient so that was good for my grafts and healing. The scabs on my head are very fine and small as some people have chunky scabs.

I am not sure if small or big scabs is a good or bad thing.

No pain so far and I only had two Paracetamols in total.

I am just struggling to sleep at the 45 degree angle so one more night of crappy sleep then I can sleep flat.

He said you have high "vascularity". This means your blood vessels are larger than average so you're moving more blood, or you have more vessels in a given area than average. Same difference.

Congratulations! I'm really glad that you have decided to share your experience. I can't stress how important this is for the community in enabling them to make an informed decision on clinic/surgeon and even deciding whether hair transplantation is right for them. I know we will be in touch but I'm looking forward to seeing the journey unfold on here. Happy healing and growing.

Thanks Scott, will continue documenting and hopefully it helps more people. As I got frustrated during my research when people just went silent after a while. I don't want to do that.

Day 5+6 - Pain in Donor area so terrible sleeping. Pain is on a 6/7 Level. I am taking Paracetamol which is helping a bit. Might add some Ibuprofen to the mix.
