Capelli11's - Profile page 5 MonthsPosted :5/12/2012
Well I am at the 5 month mark and it is time for an update! I met with
Dr. Rahal in NYC last week and it was a perfect time for him to examine
me as I am a month out of the growth phase. He said my hair is growing
nicely and am on pace to have a great result...even better than what it
looks like now, which is great news!!! He also said the scar is great
too and pretty much undetectable. He also said that he sees a lot of
stubble/tiny hairs that are ready to come through.
I've noticed my hair is getting denser and thicker as when I look at my 4
month pics I noticed a nice improvement in density/thickness. Can't
wait to see what month 6 has in store!!! I said it a hundred times, but
I'll continue to say it...this was the best thing I ever did...it has
not only improved my confidence, but just as important, it has finally
allowed me to not focus on my hair loss 24/7 which is what I did ALL day
long. It is such an amazing feeling to not have to worry about it
anymore...especially knowing that is is growing!!! Another great thing
is that Dr. Rahal checked out my crown for any loss and he said that he
does not advise any further surgery at the moment as my crown is
fine...I was pretty happy about that!!! He said he can see slight loss
but nothing worthy of worry in that there is no bald spot or anything
that would have someone believe I am losing...just probably upon deep
examination he could tell a little...but I've been on Propecia for a
year now and hoping it will hold it off.
One more note...Dr. Rahal asked me to blog for his site about my HT journey and show my progression via pictures like I have been doing on
this site. I was flattered considering his website is where all of his
patients see results. It was a great feeling to have him want my hair
on his site! So stay tuned as his site will have blogging by his
patients to get a better up close and personal look at real results.
I'll let everyone know when I have blogged so you can check it out! It
is a great website for potential patients too!
Well that is it for now...if you have any questions please feel free to ask! I would also appreciate your comments! Thanks!!!!
P.S. I have updated my collage...so the top right is 2 mths, bottom
left is 3 mths, bottom right is 4 mths and top right is 5 mths. This
really gives a good depiction of the growth and density increases.
