Hello Dr E and Roxy!
I hope this email finds you both happy and in good health.
I had a very thorough haircut last Friday, where my barber buzzed the back of my hair down to a number five in the donor area, and so significantly shorter than the length I'd been wearing it. It actually looks great - not a sign of any shockloss at that length, and my barber told me he was being conservative - he could probably have taken me down to a two or a three, but wanted to wait until next time (3-4 weeks) to be absolutely sure of the recovery.
I'll try to post some images when I can, but I can promise you that Dr Epstein's scar work is truly remarkable. My barber says he can barely see any signs of my scarring from previous ops, let alone the latest with Dr E. And running a comb through the number 5 length, you would truly not now know that I had surgery only 16 weeks ago."
Dr E, Roxy, I'll try to send you some images of the donor area to continue my "story" if you're interested, as soon as I can (working life is very pressurised just at the moment). On the subject of the recipient area, I'm starting to see growth on what will be the new hairline. I'm still using Minoxidil twice a day as often as I can, plus Finasteride of course.
Things are looking good at just under four months out, and I'll send some images over asap.
Very best wishes to you both,
