ABOUT ME

My journey to "find" my hair has been a long and at times, difficult one. For information on my backround, please click the link provided below. As a matter of fact, click it often, along with friends and family! Uncjim's Journey

 
MY TREATMENT

The following chronicles my progress since my Hair Transplant with Dr. Jerry Wong of
Hasson & Wong, Vancouver, B.C., Canada. The surgery, during which I received
2484 follicular units (FUs, for those of you "in the know"), commenced on
November 19, 2002.

 
MY PICTURES

 

Before and After

I have to admit, I'm feeling pretty good these days.

After years of hiding my "old style plugs" that date back to 1979, I can finally feel comfortable with my appearance.

 
Two and Four Months

The following pre-digital images are taken at 2 and 4 months. While growth is evident, the period through the first 4 months can be a bit of a challenge. It requires patience while dealing with ingrown hairs and post-op redness.

 
 
Don't Be Frightened!

While my redness lasted far longer than the average, the high contrast in these pics (especially month 4, on the right) makes it appear worse that it actually was. By month five, it was completely gone.

 
Six and Eight Months

The following 6 and 8 month images illustrate that the process was indeed worth the wait.

The redness is now history, as is the rash of ingrown hairs. We are now getting a sense of what the final "product" will be.

 
 
Oh, That Dogged Bald Spot

While I didn't have grafts inserted into the crown, I did in the area above. This, as it fills in, will create a smaller bald area that may be just a little easier to live with.

 
Framing the Face

The importance of the
"Elvis Temple" work is
evident here.

Framing the face properly is essential to a natural look.

 
Hairline at One Year

The hairline density at one year, as well as the overall density has subtly increased since 8 months.
The hair has become somewhat more combeable. I'm just about at the point where I can be "Dressed Up" and "Taken Out".

 
 
 
The Crown

This is essentially what remains of my baldness.

The "Jerry Wong Whorl" planted in the center of
"the spot" would be a nice touch in my opinion...
(stay tuned).

 
Here Comes the Sun
BRING IT ON!
 
Extreme Closeup

The genius of the LATERAL SLIT allows the single haired grafts to appear as if they are exiting a smooth scalp, mimicking nature.

 
In the Wild
YUP..a Casual Guy..in a
Casual Setting..HEY!

OK. THAT'S IT..I PROMISE..
ENOUGH OF ME!
