Hair Restoration Journey
Dr. Cesar underwent an FUT hair transplant in 2005 but was still lacking the density and growth he was looking for. He decided to undergo an FUE transplant in January of 2022 and documented his journey to show his patients.
From the morning of the procedure to seven months post-op, Dr. Cesar explains the process, shows the procedure, and provides updates to teach patients what to expect when getting an FUE hair transplant.
Dr. Cesar believes in his work so much that he underwent one of his procedures himself. Watch his hair restoration journey to learn more about this procedure to restore natural hair growth to your scalp.
The Hair Restoration Journey Begins
It’s the morning of Dr. Cesar’s FUE Hair Transplant. He has gone through all pre-op instructions, his hair has been cleansed with an antimicrobial agent, and he’s ready to start his hair restoration journey.
Ready. Set. Transplant.
Dr. Cesar is at the facility. His head has been buzzed and the lines have been marked by the doctor. With a buzzed head, you can see the full extent of his hair loss. Dr. Cesar is very excited to start the procedure.
The doctor uses a vibration tool to help minimize the pain as he injects local anesthetic to the transplant site. Dr. Cesar says it helps with the initial pinch and makes the scalp preparation less painful.
Watch as the doctor harvests hair follicles from the area of Dr. Cesar’s scalp that does not have hair loss. He will use these grafts to implant them in the areas affected by hair loss to help Dr. Cesar grow hair naturally.
Getting Ready for Implantation
The doctor breaks out the vibration tool again to prepare the implantation area. The vibration tool helps distract from the pinch of the needle. The anesthetic helps numb the scalp to make the procedure as pain-free as possible.
Creating Implantation Sites
Now that the scalp has been numbed, the doctor uses a special tool to create implantation sites. This part of the procedure is a little bloody, but rest assured that Dr. Cesar isn’t in any pain. The local anesthetic is doing its job.
Putting in the Implants
After the implantation sites have been created, it’s time to implant the grafts harvested earlier. You can see the doctor take each individual follicle and insert it into the implantation site to help fill in the hair line.
Post-Op Day 1: Let the Healing Begin
It’s the day after Dr. Cesar’s hair transplant, during which the doctor took grafts from the backs and sides of his head and transplanted them to the hair line and crown. Dr. Cesar is experiencing very little pain and is recovering nicely.
Post-Op Day 4: Feeling Good
Four days after the hair transplant procedure, Dr. Cesar no longer has to wear the bandage and is feeling good. He admits mild discomfort on day 3, but nothing Tylenol and Ibuprofen couldn’t handle. He’s excited to start seeing results.
Post-Op Day 8: Recovery Tips
Eight days post FUE hair transplant and Dr. Cesar is feeling great. He gives an overview of the difference between FUE and FUT transplants and offers solutions for minimizing the appearance of the scar left behind by FUT hair transplants.
Post-Op Week 2: Status Report
Dr. Cesar is feeling optimistic two weeks after his FUE hair transplant. Tag along as he gives a tour of his scalp and details exactly what was done during his procedure and what to expect as the scalp heals after a hair transplant.
Post-Op Month 7: Final Results
