Just updating with my donor area pictures before I leave for Brussels this week. I have been in the sun a little as once I have my procedure I will need to avoid it so loading up my vitamin D levels beforehand would seem to make some sense and I am 100% against using sunscreen as I believe the consequences are exactly the opposite of their intent.
My experience has been zero white dotting and extremely high yield. I tend to hear this misinformation by many of the other clinics. Not that white dotting does not exist for some patients but this issue comes down to choices that a patient makes as too many choose for convenience, same goes for yield. Just choose the right clinic.
This will be my 3rd procedure and the hairs should be starting to come in right around my 50th birthday which is a gift I am most grateful for. I also plan on dropping about 20lbs as I no longer need to carry the extra weight around which was job related. Of course I will do this over time as that is the best way to approach goals in my book. Slowly with constant and never ending improvement and I would suggest the same for anyone contemplating a hair transplant.
Take your time and make your choices because they are the right choices and not because they are convenient.
My chest hairs have been trimmed beforehand with lots of gray same with the beard.
