Ht - Info Pack

Recommended Posts

HT Info Pack:

 

 

Here are some general tips -

 

Before Tips

 

1. Stay local to the HT clinic

 

2. Get to the clinic early in order to not be rushed as this will allow you ample time to go through everything with the Dr.

 

3. Have a list of questions for the Dr that you want answering.

 

4. Take 2 loose hats with you. (one might not fit)

 

5. Take a travel pillow, very handy. Especially on the journey home.

 

6. Get to bed early the night before. Aided sleep is advisable.

 

7. Get a massage the day before. Loads of places down in China Town(NYC)

 

8. Wear a buttoned up shirt for the day of surgery. Easy to get on and off.

 

9. Avoid - Alcohol, vitamins, minoxodil, MSM 7 days pre op. Can thin the blood.

 

10. Wash hair the morning of the surgery and wear lots of deodorant. Its a long sweaty day you don't want to be stinking out the place

 

11. Make sure you have made your story clear to various people that you are away for the next 2/3/4 weeks

 

12. Make damned sure you've filled your Vicodin prescription BEFORE you get re-haired (de-balded?), as opposed to waiting until the night before because "hey, this is New York, of course I'll find an all-night pharmacy...)

 

13. I would advise taking the pain killers regularly, even before the pain starts

 

14. Have the clinic take lots of pre op pics in order to have a controlled

comparison for post op

 

 

Additional tips from other guys:

 

1. My tip to anyone travelling long distances is to fly home the day after surgery! At one day post-op I had no swelling and no pain because my head was still totally numb! I flew home four days post-op and my head looked like a balloon and the aneasthetic was beginning to wear off which made for a long and uncomfortable flight home!!!!!

 

2. Have the doc wash your hair the day after surgery...it reduces scabing and you won't spend the next two weeks looking in the mirror waiting for them to fall off.

 

3. If you are going to do zero percent credit card, sign up the month before the procedure not the month after. they don't like 10K balance transfer and won't give you a high enough limit.

 

4. Sun screen on the graft for the first four months. Otherwise if you get too much exsposure you'll peel really bad and have redness for months.

 

5. Read the post op instructions before you have the HT. Write down any key questions and tick them off before you leave the surgery. Its easy to forget to ask, what with the injections etc.

 

6. Use a bandana - its more comfortable than the baseball hat and covers more of the head.

 

7. Bring button-up shirts - easier to take off.

 

8. Figure out your communications strategy. I decided to tell people on a need to know basis which meant that I told only a few.

 

9. Do not watch comedy DVD's during the procedure - It can result in you laughing and moving your head at the wrong time!

 

10. IPB Image

 

11. Take a MP3, IPOD or CD player

 

 

Airport Security

 

The best way to do it is to make sure there is nothing on you to slow down your smooth passage through security. Remove all items such as watch, keys, change, bangels, chains, ...anything that could cause a bleep..

As you walk through remove your cap casually and calmly. They will not specifically be looking at you head at all... you will be ultra paranoid They will maybe glance and then once your through that vital 10 secs just casually pop the hat back on.

You will never ever see the sercurity guy again so who gives if he suspects..and the people behind you will be too stressed out taking all their crap off and sticking into the machine for scanning.

Another alternative is you can always ask for a private room........ but to be honest , just not needed!!

 

 

Immed After Tips

 

1.Never underestimate the recovery time needed. Get the absolute max amount of time off work. You will feel fine after a couple of days but you will look terrible. Its not so bad if you can wear a cap.

 

2. Remove all mirrors from your house, car, office etc Seriously!

 

3. Sleep upright /45degree angle to aid swelling

 

4. Apply huge amounts of Aloe Vera to both donor and recipient area 5 days after. (2 x a day minimum)

 

5. Distilled witch hazel helps with redness (apply 7/8 days post op)

 

6. Get on MSM (makes hair grow faster)

 

7. Drink lots of water / fluids

 

8. Bend at the knees for first 3/4 days

 

9. First 3/4 days just put shampoo in a cup and pour it over the recipient and donor area. Then build up to a shower but shield your recipient with your hand and dab on shampoo.

 

10. Have a couple of beers and soak your head in a hot bath prior to Staple removal

 

11. Rest as much as possible

 

12. No physical activity for 10 days then build it up.

2 weeks post op........

 

1. Stop staring in the mirror all the time

 

2. Start up physical exercise gradually

 

3. Start Minox if you want to help speed up growth

 

4. Stop inspecting scar/ donor area all the time! Its takes months to fade.

 

5. Put the HT on the back burner now for at least 4/5 months

 

6. Take some clear pics to compare you situation at various stages

 

Post op Redness

 

Post-op redness will occur both in the recipient area and the donor area. The degree and length of time in which both areas will remain pink or red, will largely depend on the individual's skin tone. Redness in the recipient area occurs due to the presence of newly formed blood vessels and inflammation from the placement of the new grafts.

 

Redness in the donor area occurs where the strip was removed and is basically a wound that will eventually heal. Once the wound has fully healed, the scar should appear as a pencil thin, white line that is difficult to locate provided the surgeon skillfully applied the latest techniques when removing the donor strip and closing this area.

For individuals with a higher degree of hair loss, the redness will be more apparent than with those who are able to partially camouflage the area with existing hairs.

Suntan (avoid burning) a few weeks prior to surgery. After surgery and once the grafts have shed, cosmetic attempts can be made to mask the redness in the recipient area.

 

The hair surrounding the donor area can be cut as low as a #2 razor guard (1/4"), and still conceal the donor wound. Depending on the thickness and density of the individual's hair. Typically 1/4" - 1/2" of existing hair, is sufficient enough to assist with covering the area.

 

Pimples

 

Pimpoles may occur on the recipient area. This is normal and should not cause any discomfort. To the touch, a pimple may be a bit sore (as with a pimple anywhere else on your body). If pimples do appear, they typically do so a month after surgery. Many patients have reported pimples appearing for months after surgery. It is thought that pimples occur due to fragments of skin or hair that may have been caught beneath the skin's surface.

 

I have recommended Tea Tree oil to a couple of recent HT guys who have experienced little pimples post op and it seems to have resolved their situ's - Also a very hot flannel applied to the recipient area can help draw them out and help!

 

Scabbing and Shedding Grafts

 

Once the grafts are placed into the recipient area, the grafts are held in by fibrin, produced by a chemical reaction in serum when the graft sites are made. Typically, the grafts will become fully secure by the eighth day. Scabs will begin to form the day after surgery. On average, scabs will remain present for up to 10 days.

 

If a scab falls out and there is a hair present in the scab, this is completely normal. As long as blood is not present and tissue does not appear around the hair, assume the graft is fine. Once the scabs have completely disappeared, you will have the appearance of a buzz cut. Within the next 2-6 weeks, these hairs will begin to shed and the recipient area will appear as it was prior to surgery. The grafts are merely in a resting phase and will begin its growth cycle in approximately 3 months.

 

The next phase of post-op surgery, is the most difficult; waiting for your new hair to grow in.

 

Staple/Sutures Removal

 

The staples or sutures (depending on the surgeon's technique) typically remain in place for approximately 10 days post surgery. Surgeons encourage that you come back to the clinic to have them removed, but will provide you with instructions for removing them should a visit to the surgeon not be possible.

 

The scar that will remain once the staples or sutures are removed will become less and less noticeable as months pass and will eventually turn into a pencil thin, white line.

 

TIP:

Prior to having the staples removed or sutures removed (this tip is more applicable to staples), have a long shower and soak the donor area. When scabs are dry, there tends to be a tiny pinch when the staples are removed. Soaking the donor area will moisten the scabs and minimize any discomfort.

 

 

Shockloss

 

Shockloss is something that can be experienced when transplanting into existing hair although highly unpredictable. Shockloss occurs when the native hair is weak and isn't strong enough to resist the trauma thats going on around it. More often than not the hair that has gone into shock will grow back but after 3/4 months - after the resting phase

Hair that goes into shock and doesn't return is hair that was inevitably on its way out anyway and wasn't strong enough to return.

Increased trauma to a localised area will increase the chances of shockloss

Shockloss is unpredictable and there is no hard and fast rule to avoiding it - especially if you are transplanting into existing hair.

 

There are risk factors that either heighten or lessen someone's risk. Diffuse thinners seem more prone to shockloss than receders because the hair in a diffuse area is often less stable than that of a receder. Very often, a lot of the hair in a diffuse area is "on its last legs" and in the latter stages of the miniaturization process.

 

 

NOTE:

Be aware that everyone is different! We ALL heal and grow at different time scales.

 

Be very patient and take pictures to enable you to see the results a little clearer. The realisation of the results will be hard for you to actually see as is so gradual.

 

Pictures at 6-8-10-12-14 months are important to give you the visual realisation of the developments occuring to keep you in a positive frame of mind!

 

All the best and heal and grow well all!!!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Growth and Number of sessions

 

I get asked these questions all the time - "Will i only need one session?"

 

The answer to this is more than likely NO - Its very rare indeed that any patient only has one session unless they have a very small amount of loss - or limited donor supply, then you potentially aren't a viable HT candidate unfortunately.

 

Even if your hair loss is absolutely stable and doesn't progress any further the chances are your first session will be the foundation for a potential second session to top up/refine/add density/close angles/ work further back ..etc - regardless of technique used. Hair is like money you always want more - You will always want to make it better, we ALL do!

 

Top Dr's will endeavour to achieve the appropriate no. / highest number of grafts possible without jeopardising you in order to create as much coverage/density as possible in one session where warranted - whilst maintaining your donor area/further supply's integrity.

 

The initial session will come in so slowly and gradually that you become so used to it that it becomes the normal and YOU will not necessarily notice the change bang on month 3! - The realisation takes time!! It is only until you compare pre op pics that you actually realise how far you have come and have a glimpse at what your situation actally was.

 

 

You will scrutinise your results constantly, inspecting it every chance you get - and feel that you will always want more hair - Even at month 5/6/7 patients are planning their 2nd session but my advice is WAIT and allow for the first session to reach its max potential

 

It doesn't matter how many times i say it to people or write it they still feel that their growth has stopped at month 4/5/6...... then come month 10/11/12 they say - wow you were right.. I did get more.

 

Growth doesn't stop for many many months - it can take upto 18 months to reach the max potential from your HT so why guys are convinced after 5 months their growth has stopped is just beyond me

If you have received your HT from one of the reputable clinics around today then your growth will continue upto a year along with a great deal of maturing.

 

Many Dr's have commented on time scales for growth and established posters as well who have all been through the HT process and they all agree that you need to assess your HT at at least the 1 year mark in terms of reaching full growth.

 

You the HT recipient will not see the growth just occur - it takes months for the realisation to kick in. It is important to take pictures at monthly intervals to clearly see the progression.

 

Its important that guys realise that HT's are a commitment long term and you must realise that you will always want to refine your hair and wish it were thicker/fuller/denser - This is the nature of hair.

 

Hair greed

 

Grow well everyone!!!!

 

----------------------------------

 

Patience!!

 

 

Patience is the toughest part of the HT procedure but one of the most important ones.

 

Trust me i truly know how tough the waiting game is - I have been there many, many times before!! Looking constantly in the mirror, inspecting it every opportunity, driving along staring in the rear view mirror(how i never crashed i don't know) Wondering why at exactly 3/4 months there is still no growth!! Frustrated why the redness hasn't clamed down when forum member X was back to work at 10 days with no worries.

 

The trick here is to understand that everyone is different in terms of recovery times, growth times, expectations, realisation period etc.

 

Patience is an essential part of the HT journey and i think it needs more exposure - When embarking down the HT road - "Be Patient!!!"

 

Just because "Joe Bloggs" had great growth at month 3/4 doesn't necessarily mean you are going to - So being aware of this prior to your HT.

The growth will come in its own time and you will have your realisation in your own time. - Be patient!! Could be 6 could be 10 months.

 

It's a fact 3/4 months post HT is the toughest time in the entire process but you are only prolonging the agony by expecting to wake up one day around month 3/4 and see it all taking place. It doesn't happen like this!!! It is soooooooooooo slow and gradual that you actually do not see it happen. You will only see the transformation when you compare your pictures along side each other at monthly intervals. A great example was Ian who i spoke with at month 9 post op and he said "well i haven't really seen much difference since month 4" - I showed him his pictures and well you do the maths.;)

 

IPB Image

 

Be patient - I know its tough, really tough!!! By inspecting your hair though 24/7 its actually NOT going to make things happen any quicker - In fact it will make things happen slower - "A watch kettle never boils"

 

Be prepared post op to really make a conscious effort to put it all on the back burner for 6 months as a bench mark as other wise you will only drive yourself MAD! - Trust me - i speak from personal experience!!

 

Grow well all of you!!!!!!!!!!!!

-----------------------------------

 

I speak to many guys from various Doc's about their concerns with growth and time scales.

 

Its vital that guys embarking down the HT road understand that they are not going to get the full result from their HT until

16 / 18 months at least...

Nevermind 3/4 months..... which for some reason seems to be the bench mark for the day they wake up and its all over. :eek:

 

So many guys email me concerned that at 3/4months they have not seen any growth yet :confused: And that they think

their HT has been a failure :rolleyes: !

 

I think everyone needs to be made aware that even after a whole year there is still a great deal more in store,

ie thickening and maturing.

 

Many of us at the London Showcase only had this confirmed as we could all clearly see the big difference between

the "Feller Twins" who are 4 months apart. Ian who is at 16 months post op (4 months ahead of Pete) Looked significantly

thinker and fuller than Pete who is at the 12 month mark.

 

Months 8-16 are just as important in terms of growth, maturing, thickening as the first 8 months in my opinion.

The success of your HT can only be determined after 18 months especially if you are a slow grower as well;)

 

Look at the progression of Ian who is now at 16 months post op and as we speak in the chair with DR Feller for round 2!

All the best Ian - Hope its gone welll amigo!! ( put screen on full )

Hair characteristics

 

Hair characteristics play a vital role in the overall illusion and success of a HT. Some patients have more favourable hair characteristics and therefore need less grafts to gain their personal goal. Someone with fine, straight, thin hair is going to require more grafts to achieve a similar result than for example someone with coarse, wavy, thick hair.

 

Remember Hair transplantation is the "art of illusion". With the appropriate placement and use of your hairs characteristic the illusion can be achieved very well - the more favourable your hair characteristic is ie; wavy, thick hair means the illusion can occur with fewer grafts if positioned correctly.

 

Our hairs characteristics all vary but be aware of your own when embarking into HT's and how it can aid or not aid the illusion. In brief - Patients with very similar loss patterns may not have the same hair characteristic. Therefore they will require a different amount of grafts to achieve a similar result in terms of illusion, coverage, density.

 

Hair transplants are all about the art of illusion ;-)

 

 

-------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Down time!

 

A very common question associated with getting a HT and one of the most common reasons for not getting a ht sooner in many cases. Many guys know which Doc they are going with after much research but then need to wait months, sometime years to get an appropriate window of "Down time" in order to pull the HT off unnoticed by family, friends, work colleagues etc...Down time is a pain in arse - NO DOUBT!!!

 

Downtime is definitely an element of the whole HT procedure you need to consider when embarking on your HT journey.

 

Depending on the size of the session obviously some patients down time is less than others: ie smaller sessions can get away with a shorter down time period compared to larger session sizes.

 

Healing is only half the battle - Many guys heal up with no real evidence of surgery in as little as 10 days and some can still have lingering redness for quite a prolonged periods of time - especially fair skinned patients. There is also the factor of having to have the recipient areas shaved down in order to achieve the best result possible and provide the doc great flexibility etc -Shaving down is essential!...(thats a whole other topic )

 

The answer to the question of "how much down time do i need?" is an impossible one to answer but i recommend that you give yourself as much time as possible - a MINIMUM of 2-3 weeks ideally 4-5 (especially larger strip sessions.) If you can wear a hat to work then you are laughing and could literally be back to work within days if you wanted to but for the vast majority wearing a hat at work is not an option and the appropriate amount of downtime post op needs to be considered!

 

I have received a number of sessions over the years and never once have i been able to back at work within 2 weeks and i know all the tricks - Some are below, please feel free to add any handy minimising "down time" hints.

 

1. Apply Aloe Vera gel, Emu oil, distilled witch hazel etc.. to the healing areas to help soothe and speed up healing process.

2. Take MSM (3000mg) to speed up the existing hairs growth since the buzz to get some length back to help disguise.

3. Use concealers in areas once hair is long enough to help bulk up and disguise lingering redness.

4. Wearing a hat to buy you valuable days.

5. Growing hair long pre op to help disguise areas worked on.

6. Buzz hair short pre op in advance so people you see on a day to day basis don't notice the new buzz cut post op.(Especially FUE guys)

7. Take a holiday post op and take yourself out the loop for 3-4 weeks

8. Take sick leave right before your holiday comes to a close - buy you valuable days

 

 

The list will hopefully be added to with experiences that guys have been through in order to help minimise their own personal downtime.

 

 

Hope all this info helps guys out - especially newbies who find research a complete mind field.

 

Regards

heyy, just wanted to know...

 

is it normal for one side of transplanted hair to be thin compared to the other side, basically my right side where it was really thin before my HT is still lookin thin compared to my left side...However, when i pull my hair back, I can see a great hair line, but apart from that, it is still lookin pretty thin everywhere else, I can see with a magnifying mirror, thin long hairs, I guess that will thicken up in time...

 

i guess i'm just being impatient, as usual... :rolleyes:

How long post op.. has it been for you now mate?

Spex, I have one to add....

 

In my own opinion... being a re-born health freak and well into my fitness (having lost 3 stone over the last year through good excercise and diet) I pay a lot of attention to nutrition and what you body needs to repair and grow after muscle fibres are broken down or skin tissue is seeking the right nutrition to repair... this can only be done effectively if you feed your body the nutrition 'IT WANTS' to repair itself.

 

As you guys know, Dr F asks you to refrain from taking any multi-vits or minerals tabs during the week leading upto the HT to prevent excess bleeding during the HT. But if you know your not the best at eating the perfect healthy diet of all these Vits and minerals in your daily food intake (not tablets) then you'll be lacking in these valuable food sources to feed your body what it is asking for to repair your skin / head from the traumer it has experienced. (start taking a multi-vit and minerals again each day post op and if you have dry skin include a daily Omega 3 cap).

 

For e.g You wouldnt fill your car up with crap as it wouldnt even start... you need to treat your body the same to get it to run at its best!

 

Have some good healthy nutrients ready soon as you have got back to the hotel... eat some Fruits... (apples... bananas... raisons) Nuts (omega 3).... (good fats...Walnuts.. peanuts... cashews ) and drink plenty of fresh water... drink a few glasses that evening with your meal / snack. For meals the following days ... make sure you include plenty of vegatables... Broccolli and green leaft veggies are great..onions...red/green peppers.. and some wholegrains (brown breads) lots of iron and fibre...and your hair is made up of protein!! so drink a protein drink a day if you need to... and eat some chicken or tuna etc with your main meals.

 

What I am trying to say is... eat as healthy as you can the following few weeks post op at least and give your blood supply the nutrients it needs to repair the areas that have had surgery as fast and as well as possible! (there are only 3 nutrients... Protein / Carbs / Fats) stay away from fried foods for a while. How else is it going to be given the best chance if your drinking Coke or Beers and crisps... or greasy burgers and chips... and even just drinking Coffee and Tea (these strip nutrients from your body! this is the last thing you want to do...the oppersite! even diet coke is crap for you) drink fresh water... 8 glasses a day is regarded as maintence levels alone.. so treat your body to a fresh start after your surgery.. ;) Your blood supply carries the nutrients that is feeding your hair transplant for a fast recovery/repair... so put some goodness in it instead of empty uneccessary crap for a change.

Great post BH ! 3 stone hey that is a great achievement well done mate ;)

 

I go through good stages of trying to eat healthy and keep up with the exercise. Last week man flu played a big part in stopping me and this week I have just been real lazy and ate shite all week. So that post has just spurred me on to get back into it (after the weekend of course) cheers mate. :)

Thanks Stevo... biggest problem is trousers falling down now! lol! I've gone from 40" around the belly to 31"! and 35% fat to 14%. Lots of excercise was needed (8 months of weights and cardio) and sadly... had to stop the beer for a while.. but its been worth it.

 

Just made me think how important feeding yourself well is to the body...especially when its craving the nutrients it needs to repair/heal your skin directly after surgery your blood cells are going crazy trying to fix everything waiting for you to feed it what it needs..(many junk foods have no benifit what so ever apart from making you fat...complete junk) at least take some multi-vits, plenty of water.. veggies...and fruits..omega 3...nuts.. whole grains...and good lean protein. I wouldnt say give up what you like as that can stop people even trying... just reduce the crap and just add these good nutrients with the foods you like so your getting them in there! ;) and least u know u'r doing your bit.. :)

Nice one... sounds like it really worked out well... I was also wondering at one stage if I would be best of doing that! But just decided it was too drastic... and did it the long way round.. old fashioned way on a bike and treadmill! weights and diet.. wasnt pretty but thank god i got here!

 

I'm the same as u... love the good foods.. when I was in Manhatten...I found a grocery store...I went in on my way back after my site seeing...and picked up fruits (bananas and apples) and mixed fruits and nuts.. and some mineral water. It was so good to snack on that lot after the surgery...i could feel my body soaking it up! I'm sure it helped me recover and sleep more comfortably that night (i shouldnt forget the slices of Feller Pizza I had too! but thats was a special healing one! ;) )

 

Great to hear u'r side of it.. :)

Hi guys,

 

I have put together a site to aid anyone wanting to purchase relevant products post op to aid faster healing and quicker growth - I have done this due to the volume of emails i get everyday regarding these products so thought it would make sense put them all in one place. The products are for sale through this site below but i can assure you it is not about profit - rather helping guys get all the right stuff from one place without having to schleep around looking for it all post op. By all means use the info and go purchase the products yourself if you feel you can get them cheaper and easier.

 

All the best !

 

Spex
