NCHTJC's - Profile page Day 15 suture removal with Dr. LimmerPosted :3/4/2009
I had intended to leave my sutures in until Day 21 but the area was becoming mildly inflamed and irritated and I thought leaving them in any longer would be counter-productive. Dr. Cooley referred me to the Limmer practice in San Antonio for suture removal. They have a good reputation as well on these websites. Of the four Dr. Limmers at the practice, I believe I spoke with the oldest son. He looked at everything and said things were healing great. He was very friendly and didn't charge me for the suture removal. I've read a lot of good things about their work as well.
Nothing of consequence to report on the hair line that you'll see in a picture but I'll post as things progress. I have had a mild numbing sensation in the middle of my forehead where the grafts were placed. It's comparable to a limb falling asleep but I'm only aware of it when I press the area while shampooing. It seems to be fading. I've continued to lose roughly the same number of implanted hairs each day since day 11 - maybe 15/day that I notice in the shower.
