Levrais's - Profile page Day-of-procedure
I researched HTs for about a year prior to having mine. I found this site particularly helpful. In fact, I had no idea what was actually invloved until I found this site.
These pics were taken by the doctor just before and just after the procedure. The procedure started at 7:30 am and lasted until about 6:15 pm with a lunch break. The original plan was for 1,000 to 1,200 grafts but we ended up with 1498. It was a long day but the valium they gave me made it manageable. There wasnt much pain during the procedure. I left for home 2 days after the procedure. If I had it to do over again, I would have stayed in Brussels a few more days to recover before traveling.
