I had my sutures out today. The incision is thin and looks great. There are no visibility issues with either recipient area or donor area. The transplanted hair has begun to shed, which is not a surprise to me but is somewhat a disappointment after seeing it there for the last 12 days. I know it will continue to do so but I know that to be normal. I believe having the transplant done in this manner gives a patient more assurance of how things will look and is especially helpful to the first time patient. It could be a bit of a disappointment to see the hair go away for a while, but seeing the result early on definitely provides encouragement during the grow-in period. Like with my other procedures before patience is now the name of the game.
