Thank you for your reply. I have been in California and only returned yesterday to find your e-mail. I am very interested and would like to proceed, but have a few questions/items that I wonder if you could clarify for me:
Is there an example of what you mean by “moderate” on your website? (I’m sure you have a good idea of what moderate would look like, but it’s difficult for me to picture without a little help!) Do you do enhanced photos predicting what the results would look like? I’ve read somewhere on your website that there is no problem with full activity, work, etcetera the next day, but wonder how noticeable the transplants are. I want the end results to be very noticeable, of course, but am not anxious for everyone to see the initial work.
Thank you for the information and your help. I look forward to your reply.
Examples from my website include GW01- 02, -05, and -08. In photos, the results always appear more impressive than in real life, due to the 2-dimensional aspect of photos without the light shining from above. It may be possible to obtain the same density with a somewhat smaller number of grafts, especially given that with gray hair, it is possible to use more 3 and 4 hair grafts for maximal density.
Most patients are presentable 1-2 days after the procedure, considering that your existing hair can cover up any crusts. Normal hair washing and activity can be resumed at 5 days, while flying home is possible as soon as the first day after the procedure.
