Dr Feller Offered Me A Free Fue Surgery!

Recommended Posts

Hi to everyone that already knows my story so far with my HT transformation journey (4 in total)....and those of you that dont know my story. Its been quite a journey of rocky times... :( but the road is now a brighter and much happier one :)

 

I have been posting my progress ever since the very 1st meeting with Dr Feller around 3 years ago when he made a remarkable change in my life by repairing an appalling UK hair transplant (performed by NOBEL HAIR CLINIC UK) this was back when I was 23 years old (I'm now 37) and totally destroyed my self confidence through the whole of my 20's and part of my 30's. I completely stopped seeing my mates and just hid under a hat when ever I left the house. I also hate wearing caps/hats as they are not the image I want to portray (chav image) but I had no choice after the Noble Clinic completely butchered me, leaving me with terrible donor scarring/ recipient scar tissue and totally unnatural groups of 5 and 6 plugs in the front hairline spaced way to far apart! :angry:

 

I have been quiet for a few months as I felt I needed to get my life together... I was starting to do things and go out a lot more than before... so I havent posted for a while.. and just been 'finding myself again'.

 

Well... from the time I had a terrible UK HT 10+ years ago, I lost all contact with friends and stopped wanting to go out and socialise as I felt a freak show and very depressed!! (It really is an emotional thing for me to even think about this as I write this right now as I dont say depressed lightly!!! I was at an all time low taking anti-depressents).

 

Since then Dr Feller and his super techs! had filled and packed in around 5000 grafts into my front 3rd to give me a result better than I could ever have dreamed of having ever again in my life!!! (I truly can not say this enough!! This has truly changed my life to the extent that I have even been dating a lovely girl which wouldn't have even of been ANY HOPE of doing this without my new found confidence with knowing that I look 'normal!!' and no longer like a freak show!! :huh:

 

So... here is something I can not even believe has occurred to me over the last few days!!!

 

I havent been to NYC for longer than few days at a time before just enough to have HT's with Feller Medical (and always on my own). I wanted to go back and see the sights and even more with someone to share the experience of the awesome sights in NYC!!

 

I had already told my girlfriend that I have had my HT's there and visted Manhatten (she said from the very start it has never bothered her one bit as she thinks it looks really good and would never know unless I had told her) and I wanted to visit Dr Feller to show him how far I have come along since he last saw me (exactly 2 years ago). As I know how pleased I am....and wanted him to see it for himself.

 

A few days before I was due to leave NYC I dropped in to see Dr Feller and one of the 1st things he told me was 'I already knew you would look this good!' and 'a world apart from before' he had already expected to see me looking a world apart from the damaged guy that walked in that very 1st time with unnatural thick black twisty whirly plugs (by Noble Clinic UK!!!!) This was so nice to hear that he was just as pleased as I was!!

 

I think it was knowing how sad I was before in my life to transform me to how I am today is quite something special (I was truly rock bottom it was just pure luck from searching the Internet and meeting SPEX that my life changed completely!!!! ;) ). I had worn a cap on my head for well over 10 years since the Noble UK work... :ph34r: and I was reaching breaking point if I am being honest!

 

Some months ago I just briefly mentioned about feeling some hair greed and would like a slightly fuller hairline as the Noble work was still very slightly evident in the direct hairline. This was most likely hard to detect by onlookers unless you are aware of them and it being my head....I was still aware a few of them were still just making the difference from being a natural hairline for me that I can no longer have an concerns about... like I said....in all honesty.... it was hair greed!! and I didn't like having ANY reminder of them as it was a really bad time for me to live with those for a very long time.

 

I mentioned to Dr Feller how he has transformed not only my hairline but my life!! which is pretty amazing to me to even be writing this now.....and believing that I have been given another chance to really GO FOR the things I want in LIFE NOW!! I am so much more positive about my future!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (sorry for all those !!!! but they were needed and truly meant).

 

After a chat and Dr Feller wanting to take some pics... he said he wasn't entirely happy that the hairline as there was still some NOBEL micro grafts evident at the very front. He showed me there was still a few groups/plugs that had re-shown themselves and he really wanted to FIX them up once and for all!! I am not a rich guy so had no chance of paying for a final session to finish off the hairline to the ultimate result....so I was thinking 'OK, I will have to save up for a few years and come back again'. The trip to NYC was a gift from my girlfriend... as I kept telling her how awesome it was and wanted her to see it with me, we both had time off so seemed the perfect opportunity to go back.

 

Sorry this is becoming a long write up! I am trying to say everything I am thinking of and its been a while :unsure: ....without stretching this out too long!! as the next thing that happened whilst visiting Dr Feller was something that I totally unexpected! :o

 

He knew my financial situation was not one that I could afford to pay for a further final session to finish off my hairline by 'filling in between the Noble work' to completely leave them undetectable. He then asked when I was going to be flying back home. I had 2 days left of my trip so he asked if I would be able to come in the following morning and he would be willing to do a FUE session FREE OF CHARGE!!! on my hairline to resolve any of those issues remaining!!!! :o I couldn't even believe I was being offered this kind of generosity/support/help/kindness from the very best HT doc in the field!! Dr Feller must be the most caring guy I have ever met! I have to say I was shocked to have such an offer of this kind and was not expecting this what so ever! I was/am just so grateful I can not even start to tell you how grateful I am. I would never have been able to afford this is all truthfulness.

 

So, to bring my fellow hair loss guys up to date, I have only just got back home a few hours ago... I had a few hours sleep as I was just so tired after the flight. It went so well... I was out by 2.30pm yesterday and just seemed to fly past... I am now back in the waiting game again.. I am kind of getting used to this by now! lol.

 

Dr Feller and all his super team of techs by using FUE have placed some new finer/softer hairs between the thicker grafts in my hairline to leave a softer natural result. I am not sure of the graft count, but the fronts were all singles as you would expect and 2's going further back (approx 1" back into the front triangles) I would hazard a guess of approx 800? FUE grafts. The left side needed more than the right and Dr F removed some remaining Nobel nasties! to improve things further still. This is my 1st FUE so the experience was quite different from the strip procedures before hand... I felt very comfortable the whole time... at times I thought I was laying back on my hotel bed and started to fall asleep! all the sight seeing the previous days had really worn me out too!

 

I am still really quite tired and this hasnt fully sunken in yet! havent eaten anything yet so I will post up more soon as things progress... and some pics in due time.. I know these are what people want to see... in total this is my 3rd Dr Feller HT and each time my life just improves beyond words.

 

Thank you to everyone that has supported me along my very long journey and tuff road... this is really quite an amazing situation and I know this is a unique situation I am in and have been offered.... and I just once again want to say how incredibly grateful I am!! MANY THANKS DR FELLER ALL YOUR SUPER STAFF AND SPEX that have changed my life beyond words.

 

Cheers everyone for all your support I hope this helps to show that anyone in a similar situation can be helped!! you can get your life back on track... I just want you to know... by finding these forums... you have possibly made the best discovery of your life just by finding these forums just like I did... it was just pure luck for me as a last grasp for some kind of hope!! but it was the luckiest thing I ever did for sure.

 

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: NEVER HAVE A HT IN THE UK!!!!!! Travel!! Stop thinking UK Clinic are anywhere near the Level of USA/Canada HT procedures. This is my own opinion from my own experience.

 

Take care guys....I'll post some updates regularly...to show how things are going... hang in there everyone... I know this is a unique situation.. and will complete a very long Roller Coaster journey for me now B)

 

 

 

BHUK.

Mate.....I'm well pleased for you!!! As a fellow UK HT victim, suffering depression, not seeing myself in the mirror for 3 to 4 years for fear of not being able to walk out of the door....I completely and utterly understand where you're coming from. Refreshing to hear that there are good doctors around!!

 

I'm thinking of getting FUE too over the next couple of months. Just need to save enough money for a deposit. Thinking about 1000 grafts in the front third to finish things off.

 

Good to hear from you again man...really good!! :lol:

Hey Stan, my fingers do all the typing away... its not till I read back I realise how long my post was.. great to hear from you mate. Its has deff been the most exiting part of my life to reach where I am now... all I can say is....Thank god I'm not too old to do something about it! I still feel like I have some very good times ahead.. I would never in a million years predicted I would be saying that a few years ago.. quite something to hear myself say that.

Take care mate...great to see u here again.

These were taken as soon as I got back to my hotel... approx 30 mins after my surgery... (before wash/clean up the next day) please note: all the hair you can still see at the front is HT hair that was not trimmed for the surgery and left long...

The crown is holding up pretty well since I have been taking Fin.... just ordered abnother supply as my 1st order lasted over a year.. deffinitely worth taking if your considering surgery... meds I think I a must to hold into your native hair.. you cant beat your own hair rather than replacing what you have lost.

I think pics speak a million words... so I have tried to use them to speak for me.. I think its clear to see why I am so surprised at my own transformation when you look at how bad I was at the start.. just awesome.. just to repeat myself again.. thanks for all the support everyone... I really needed it to get me here ;)

Hey BHUK..

 

After a long stint away from the forums I was expecting to see new faces on here but it's just my luck to see a positive post from a fellow journeyman. After being butchered like no tomorrow, I know exactly how you feel mate but soon enough you'll be able to put this in the past and feel normal. Believe me you look normal. Well done to Dr Feller to offer his services for free. I'm sure Spex was instrumental in this :) ..

 

Congrats again BHUK.. it's really nice to see that your luck has changed.. I hope you feel as good as your hair looks :D

Cheers Bill... when someone with your experience posts with kind words or praise like this it goes a long way! many thanks for saying that B) Its good its the colder time of year here now so wearing a beanie hat wont look unusual for a few months for things to re-grow out of sight! I will leave my head uncovered and stay home for another week before I start wearing any hats to let it breath and heal a little more 1st.

 

Thanks :)

Haha...thats really cool being called a hairy bastard! lol.. awesome to hear from you mate! :D

 

Your results inspired me and kept me feeling positive about my own process when I didnt think I was doing so well back at the beggining.. following your progress helped me get through some tuff times... the 1st HT was the hardest one when ALL that uncertainty sets in :unsure: from there on it gets easier but thanks to guys like you ... it makes the journey easier knowing ur not alone.

 

p.s nope.... the naked cow girl didnt show up this time! But I still owe her $5 from last time so just as well! ;)

 

p.p.s you still have to go back to NYC... even if its not for more hair.. I already wish I was back there again.. it was in the 70's the whole time...sunny/blue skies.. awesome B)

Did Dr Feller use the new FUE tool he designed to extract your donor hair? I probably have a few hundred donor grafts available via FUE - maybe I'll go over and get every last one transplanted. My wife keeps going on about how thin my crown is :angry:

Yes he did. I was told by Spex he only uses it and has done for sometime now. That sounds like a plan to me ;) thats why I am not married.. :lol:

7 days post surgery... I always was a slow healer.. pleased I have the longer hair on top that now is pretty much able to cover the FU's.. but wont be looking closely for another few months.. just a quick idea for you to see how it looks after 1 week.. (a comb hasnt seen my hair so its straight out of bed look.. )

How often will you need to backfill between the transplanted hair and you natural hairline (which I assume will continue receeding)?

 

That is the one issue I have with HT's - if you leave them as long as you can it becomes obvious that you've had a HT. If you get it done soon, surely you must need to top up regularly in order to plug the gap between the two hair sets.

 

It looks mightily good though - I wish I could summon the courage to go get one.

Hi Wobblywilly! (lol where did that name come from!!)

 

My entire front half of my hair is ALL HT hair... (transplanted hair doesnt recede once planted) all my native hair had already receded... there was none left :unsure:

 

What you see in the front half is all staying now.. it was just the hairline that was filled this time around to give it the finishing touch. I only had a tuff of hair way back in the middle of my head which was also thickend the 1st time around by Dr Feller. I had a kind of bridge of baldness going accross the centre of my scalp leaving a tuff in the middle which seperated the front/back :( but that was taken care of. The 2nd picture posted above 'before pic' which shows how I had a line accross my scalp that devided the front bald area from the back which maintained my native hair...leaving a small tuff of hair in the center.

 

The crown is the key area to look after which is why I started taking meds 18 months ago, since then I have had no further loss in the crown and I would argue its even better now than it was before. I did have a couple of sheds that lasted a few weeks and that is a little worrying, but once the shed finishes that hair grows back even stronger. Check our Richies results in the crown whilst on meds! really worth trying in my opinion.

 

I can understand your concern for other guys that may have only required a small 'fill-in' in there temples....and therefore may shed further in the future. This is why you make sure you think this through seriously and ask as many questions as you can to the Dr that you decide to carry out your procedure. He will take all this into account with how much donor hair you have available and the history of hair loss in your family. What NW scale your father is may be a factor if he is only a NW3 or a full blow NW7. The majority of guys that require a HT will need more than one.. you need to bare this in mind.

 

Hope this helps and I wish you all the best...and good for you asking this question as its a good question.

Yes that is photobucket.. theres nothing wrong with the photobucket code as its one of the same pics displayed before.

 

Getting this code:

How long did it take for the redness to die down?

 

That it an immediate post op pic above.

 

My current redness is hardly anything that I can tell now in both donor and recipient areas its only been 2-3 weeks. You can see at just 7 days it had already faded quite a bit it helps to use Aloe Vera gel in both areas to speed the recovery stage up. I started using this after 1 week. The 1st procedure did take longer I think it was around the 6-8 week mark till it had completely faded. The longest part that took to fade for me was the strip scar on the previous HT's but this is a good idea to keep the hair long enough above that area so it can be consealed after surgery.

 

Hope this helps ;)
