David’s Hair Transplant Story

This is a timeline of my second hair transplant surgery with Dr. Hasson. My first surgery was 4,856 grafts back in 2006. My second surgery as displayed on this timeline, was to add an additional 1,755 grafts for further density into my frontal half of my scalp. As you can see, my hair looked great before my second surgery (because Dr. Hasson corrected some bad surgeries I had previously received from other hair transplant surgeons) but I wanted to further add more density to achieve my desired thickness goal.

I’ve come a long way from what I used to look like and I can’t thank Dr. Hasson and his staff enough for repairing the work done by the other hair transplant surgeons.

I would like to say to anyone looking at my timeline and considering hair transplant surgery, please do your research and find an experienced surgeon. You don’t want to have to go through what I went through. It was expensive and emotional. I really wish I had found Hasson & Wong in the beginning, but I’m glad I found them eventually.

My previous hairline

Just to give you an idea as to where I started from with Dr. Hasson, here’s what my hairline used to look like prior to my first hair transplant surgery with Dr. Hasson on June 1, 2006. As you can see, my previous hair transplants left me with a ‘pluggy’ look. The first surgery took care of the repairs that were needed to make my hairline look natural. Dr. Hasson also repaired the bad hair transplant scars from my previous surgeries as well.

This is a pre hair transplant pic taken the day of my second hair transplant surgery at the Hasson & Wong clinic on October 10, 2013. This is the starting point of surgery number two.

1st day after surgery

This is what I looked like the day after surgery. I wasn’t able to sleep much, but I was excited that it was all over and looked forward to the healing process.

2nd day after surgery

Went in to have my hair washed at the the clinic. The donor area was still a bit tight, but overall, I felt great. After getting my hair washed, I went for a walk around beautiful Vancouver.

3 days post surgery

Day three I’m feeling a lot better. There’s a little bit of swelling around my nose and forehead but not much. The recipient area is starting to get some of the feeling back as well. Things are progressing along nicely!

Day 5 post surgery

The swelling has gone down quite a bit, but a little remains around my nose. I was finally able to have a few drinks which was nice! As you can see, I’ve healed quite a bit from day one. The healing process is quite quick!

The 1 week mark!

Feeling great a week after surgery! As you can see, a lot of the scabbing is gone. I soaked the recipient today and worked on removing some of the scabs using the pads of my finger tips. The recipient area is still a bit pink, but I do have pale skin. I’m completely happy about the progress I’m making so far.

2 weeks post op

My staples have been removed at this point and I’m feeling much better. It was a tad bit painful having the staples come out, but it was just a sharp prick when some of them were pulled out, so not that big of a deal really. The scar area is still a bit tender and numb but I’m feeling great!

A full month later!

Here I am one month after my hair transplant surgery. I don’t have any pinkness in the recipient area anymore, I’m ready to resume playing sports and I’m still numb in the donor area, but I know this is normal and will take some time to heal. As you can see though, no one would ever assume I had surgery at this point.

1 Month: Back of the head

Here’s the back of my head at the one month mark. I can’t cut my hair super short yet, but as you can see, I have no issues with the scar area and nobody would ever be able to tell I had surgery.

2 months after surgery

My hair continues to grow quite quickly and the numbness around the scar area has also improved quite a bit. I’m getting anxious as I can wait until the new hair start grow. I still have a bit of a wait for that, but it’s good to be back to normal and I’m feeling way better at this point.

Here’s a side view two months after surgery. My hair is fairly short on the sides and as you can see, the scar is very difficult to notice. The scar area will just keep on improving.

The 3 month mark

Not much has changed from month 2 aside from my hair growing a bit longer. I had a little bit of shock loss around the donor area, but nothing major. There is zero signs of redness in the recipient area and the numbness jsut continues to improve more and more.

No more plugs

Here’s a close up of my hairline at the 90 day mark. No more plug look! I can’t wait until it grows in a bit thicker but I’m still so happy that Dr. Hasson was able to repair the damage done by the other surgeons.

5 months back of head

The back looks fantastic. In fact, I’m able to cut my hair shorter than I’ve been able to in a very long time because of the scar left from my other hair transplant with the other hair transplant surgeons. Dr. Hasson has done a remarkable job repairing my scar.

Hairline 5 months

Compared to the three-month mark, you can see that my hairline has grown in a bit thicker. I’m beginning to get quite excited now as I see my new hairline taking shape. Time is flying by and my hair will now start to get thicker and thicker.

7 months getting thicker

Here’s my hairline at the 7-month mark. How can I not be happy with these results?! My hairline continues to take form and continues to get thicker. There’s still more growth left to go. I’m excited for the final result.

7 months getting thicker

Here I am at the 7-month mark. My hairline just keeps on improving. I couldn’t be happier and I know that I still have time to go until full growth. So I anticipate my hair getting even thicker than it appears here.

1 year full growth

Here I am at the 1 year mark of my hair transplant surgery. I have a few shorter hairs that still need to reach the same length as some of my other hairs, but for the most part, I believe I’m at the full growth stage. What a journey, but it’s been worth it and I feel like a completely new person.
