Hi guys,

Nice to be back. hope all well. i shall be back on the scene here updating this thread on monthly basis starting from a couple of weeks from now. will keep you all updated.

Here is a brief documentary of my two hair transplants with Dr. Rahal.

I started losing my hair at 16 with temple recessions being the first obvious signs. over the years it gradually developed.once i reached 20 my hairloss had increased to what you can see in my pre op pictures.

My first hair transplant session, 3608 grafts, done 4 june 2007 ,70 fu/cm2 and this was reduced the further back the surgery was done, lowest was around 40 fu/cm2 at the crown/vertex border.

HT number 2, 1623 grafts aiming at zone 1 and 2. My aim to bulk tihs area up and strengthen the existing hairline to make it somewhat more denser.

In my opinion, once this turns out well, it should be good enough to last 5-6 years (hopefully) before i look into getting the crown done.

Thanks all

Here are my pictures.

Looking good Azza.

Your second HT should give you a nice denser look and fill the hairline in.

Are you using any meds as i cant remember.

Cheers bm.

Have you considered using any concealers in your hair while you wait for it to grow out.

A bit on Nanogen in there would look great imo.

Cheers bm.
