Just an update, I had another Mega session with Dr Epameinondas Bonaros and Katerina just over a week ago now to lower the hairline slightly and add some more coverage to the crown area.

All has been going well, second time actually doesn't seem quite as bad when it comes to recovery. All scabs came off clean at wash around day 7/8 although still have some red marks on my head which do tend to take a while to fade away in my case..

FUE session no.2 (Day 1) shots below. As mentioned previously, modest work on crown and lowering hairline slightly around 1cm as agreed with Dr Bonaros.

Around 8 days post FUE, managed to carefully remove all scabs without causing any damage by having long showers and gentle massaging the recipient area. Experienced pain in my donor area again from around day 3-6 this time round but definitely a lot easier second time!

I have read this post from the beginning and your transformation from where you began is momentous.
This latest transplant will tie things up lovely.

It looks very neat and tidy. Looking forward to seeing it progress.
Thanks for the update.

Welcome all,

I've been a long term "sufferer" of hair loss, in my early 20's this predominantly affected my hairline giving the appearance of an even larger forehead (last thing I really needed!). In recent years my crown was next to go, funnily my colleagues discovered this before I did which was a bit of a wake up call.

I initially started taking Regaine around 6 years ago which I have done on and off (foam/liquid) with little to no success. Over the past 12 month I have also been taking Finasteride, unfortunately I experienced a fair bit of shed within a few months of doing so which I have yet to recover from - over the past few month the hair loss appears to have stabilised hence I decided to proceed with a hair transplant.







After much consideration I decided to proceed with the transplant at DHI Glasgow, following a consultation with Alex it was decided that a Mega+ session would be most suitable (extended one day session).

On the day my hair transplant was complete by Dr Epameinondas Bonaros, from arrival I was welcomed and I'd say taken pretty well care of. Slightly concerned that I had skipped breakfast I was provided with some light snacks prior to entering the room with Dr Bonaros and his nurse assistant (apologies forgot the name). The treatment was mostly entirely pain free but I do tend to require a lot more anaesthetic than most!

Unfortunately with the degree of hair loss I had I had to toss up between either having a lower hairline and no work on the crown or a split between a modest hairline and some crown coverage. As per the photos below you will see that I opted for the latter.







Looking back at some pre pictures (none shaved unfortunately) I am relatively pleased with the amount of grafts that seem to have been carried over. The first few nights were not the most comfortable on my donor (slept with my uncomfortable travel pillow to avoid rubbing the grafts).

Below is one of the few photos I have of my donor area, this was around 3 days post FUE and you can see that it healed up quite nicely (do have a couple of gnarly scars there from childhood). Despite this I did have intense pain in the donor area from day 5 which only subdued really around day 10 requiring round the clock Ibuprofen (pain was a combination of pinching/burning/clamping sensation).







I will continue to update as things progress, also have some shots at 10 days post FUE which I will add shortly.. :)

N.B. Unfortunately I do not know exactly how many grafts were transplanted, clearly from the photos it looks like I have a fairly good density at the front however at the crown I was told to expect only around 75% of what it could/should be.

Edit.. including pre-op photo here as the ones from the image hosting site don't appear to be showing in most instances.

Hi

I am schedule to do mine on Saturday by Dr Bonaros. May i ask how much you paid for the mega session? Are you satisfied with your result and how soon can you meet clients or other people?

Thanks
