As you can see in a lot more detail in this thread I used my smart phone to do a live posting during my surgery with Dr. Gabel on December 30, 2010. Here are a few pics from the planning phase (a month prior in November) and the actual surgery.

Little closer, with a few grafts placed along the hairline so far...


the-surgery - yay chunks my scalp in petri dish awaiting

Yay! Chunks of my scalp in the petri dish, awaiting their vivisection! Kind of a crappy cell phone pic, but you can still see the different layers of skin in there. I ended up getting 1,775 grafts total.
