Second hair transplant. From nightmare to hope

A lot have shed but some have remained. Same as last time I kept some all the way through. Healing has been good. On the ugly duckling stage so wearing hair a little longer, usual stuff. Thank you for asking
Most grafts, if not all of them should have been shed by now reverting you back to your pre surgery appearance. Has your transplanted healed ok?

What percentage of grafts have continued to grow without shedding?

Maybe 50%. It's hard to gauge the amount. It happened last time also half stayed the other half fell out. It has added to th existing density but it still isn't at stage I can show it.
My implanted hairs from first surgery are slow to grow also so it's a had balancing act

That's very cheap, is the doctor well known and does he have lots of experience?

They are the biggest in China. And have highest price and reputation. I was actually quoted cheaper elsewhere but, that became a annoying due to their practise of phone me every week and ask if I'm ready to go with them yet. The company I went with just left me alone to decide in my own time.
They also have a guarantee that if you believe 94% or lower of the grafts don't stay they will give you another for free or refund your money. It goes by density etc. The Dr has also been doing this for over 6 years and does surgery most days due to the extremely high demand now in china.
When I had my surgery there was around 7 people in the room. Dr and 6 technicians. At no point did the Dr leave. He did all the extracting and implanting the technicians helped minimally. They use a implanting pen which is loaded by the technicians the Dr places them. So it's all extremely quick

You're one of the lucky few. Good for you.

There have been a few documented cases where patients have not shed the transplanted grafts and they continued in their normal growth cycles. You are amongst the lucky ones.

I agree, the first time I went by price alone. Huge mistake and something I can never undo. The second time I went with their reputation and their approach. I have fingers crossed that it will be resolved soon

Price should never be important unless you believe the clinics are equal.
Keep us updated on your progress as you are an interesting case with your grafts continuing to grow.

Coming up 3 months since the surgery. Grafts have stopped falling out now, so it's hopefully time to see some steady growth. What you see in the picture is the remaining grafts that have stayed.

You`ve retained a lot of the transplanted grafts. Looking at this update you`d never think you had any hair loss issues.
Thanks for the update.

Thanks. Still have 9 months to go. I can finally leave my hair alone now, without having to spend ten mins each morning trying to cover my bald areas. It's nice not having to use hairspray each and everydayy. After the first transplant, I had huge areas with no hair so would have to strategically maneuver my hair to cover it up
