Dear Dr Larry Gershowitz,
It is hard to believe that six months have passed since my surgery. How time flies.
My experience at MHR was fantastic to say the least. The first few days after surgery were probably the hardest. Some swelling did occur in my face about a week after surgery but this went away within 48 hours. Gradually things become easier as the time passed.
The scabs on my head began to fall off after a few days as expected. Initially only a handful of scabs came off my head after every wash during my stay in Johannesburg. However within hours of arriving in Wellington, I experienced a lot of itching and the scabs began literally falling off my head but were almost completely gone after about two or three hair washes.
I had my sutures removed by my doctor and his nursing staff on 11 June 2012. They were very impressed at what they saw.
There was a small amount of bleeding, on odd scar here and there afterwards but they healed within weeks.
The new follicles began growing around September and I’ve attached images of my head and myself for you to see the progress.
Apart from an improved physical appearance, the hair transplant has also made me feel more confident about myself and as a result I have become more sociable and outgoing. Virtually all of my coworkers at work have noticed my new hairline.
I would love to “pop in” for a follow up evaluation and consultation but this is not possible since I currently reside in New Zealand, though you are welcome to contact me via Skype.
