    1800 Grafts, Dr Feller - 22nd October 2012

    Hi Everyone.

    Little but about me. I'm 42 living in Kent, England.
    I first noticed my hair thinning when I was 28. It has been a very slow process. Up until then I had coped with my hair loss to a certain extent, but this year it had started to get me down as it was finally stopping me style my hair how I wanted.
    One Sunday in July, I spent the whole day looking at forums regarding hair loss.
    After a few days speaking to my best friend I decided, for me to move on, a hair transplant was the best thing for me.
    Phone calls and many emails to the great Spex and I was ready to go.
    I split from my partner in July and new if things carried on the way they were I wouldn’t have any confidence in meeting women.

    Well enough of me, Here is my story so far.


    I arrived on the Sunday after a rather boring flight.
    A nice quiet Sunday evening in my hotel, although I must admit I didn't get a great deal of sleep that night.
    I was more worried about getting to Dr Fellers office on time and that everything will be ok.

    I arrived in plenty of time and decided to go for a walk for a while.
    I returned just before 7:45 and ventured into the building.

    I was greeted by the very approachable and friendly Dr Feller.
    We sat in his room for a few minutes, where we discussed my hopes and what he felt he could do for me.
    After a few lines drawn on my head. I asked Dr Feller if the new hair line he had drawn on my head was not too high. I said to him that my original hairline was lower than he had drawn. He reassured me that everything would look fine and any existing hair that is lower than the new hairline would look very natural.
    Next stop was the dentist chair and the strong smelling plastic covering of the chair.
    A quick shave of the front and back of my head and we were ready to go.

    Dr Feller started the dreaded injections in the back of my head. The first few injections were a little disturbing but no big deal. After my head began to react the rest of the injections were a piece of cake.
    I didn't really ask too many questions on what was going on at the time as I didn't really want to know.
    I was then stapled up and it was time to work front of my hair.

    Another round of injections and a little rest time and it was time for Dr Feller to start the incisions into the area for the new hair. This seemed to take quite a while. Once this was all done it was time for his assistants to work their wonder adding the new grafts.
    I did manage to doze off a couple of times, through the times when the water and saline was running down my face.
    I was in the chair nearly four hours although it didn't seem that long.

    I decided to go to the rest room and have a quick pit stop and check on my new look. Although it didn't look very sexy and was really pleased with the area that had been done. Dr Feller had filled the first inch of the front and gone further up in the temple area.
    I had a quick chat with one if his assistants who gave me a list of do's and don’ts and what to expect the next few days.
    A nice bit of lunch and then a quick chat with Dr Feller in his office. He gave me my lovely baseball and a few pills.

    Not much to say about the next couple of days where I spent most of my time tucked away in my hotel room. The odd time venturing pout to get a bit of food.

    Another long journey home. I was so glad to be home in familiar surroundings.

    Not too much discomfort so far, although it's quite hard to sleep having staples in the back and sides of my head.

    I think that's about it for now. I will post pictures of before and after in a few minutes.
    Finally, i would like to say a big thanks to Spex. For making me feel at ease when I spoke to him on the phone. For the countless questions he answered over the last three months on email.
    A big thank you to Dr Feller and his team. A great bunch of people who make you feel very welcome.

                          Results are looking great! Looks like Dr. Feller did a nice, conservative approach that'll make a subtle but terrific difference to your hairline. I'm contemplating a second procedure, and Dr. Feller is at the very top of my list.

                              One month

                              Well that's the first month out of the way.
                              The front part of my head is still numb and slight numbness and a little tender at the back of my head, but nothing that really bothers me.
                              It appears I have shed most of my new hairs now. If I look at the photos from today and two weeks ago, my hair now is a lot thinner at the front.
                              The bald bit where I had a scar in the centre of my forehead is clearly visibly again now.
                              It also looks slightly redder (more so in the pictures) than before, with the old spot now as well.
                              My hair length is starting to get on my nerves so Iím having my first trim tomorrow night. I would say my hair is at least 4 weeks longer than I normally have it.
