Adam Rivietz 6 Months Post FUE Surgery Follow Up Call

Dr. Robert Jones:
All right. So we’re just over six months post-op and just by looking initially, it looks like you have a lot more hair on the top of your head than you did when you first came to see me. Tilt your head down. It definitely looks much thicker. You were, probably when you came to see me a Norwood 3 or 4, and now you’d be sort of a Norwood 2. So you have definitely gone back on the scale. Are you happy you did it?

Adam:
I am definitely happy I did it. It’s been six months, as you mentioned, and over the last few months, even though we have been in lockdown here during this COVID pandemic, I have seen some folks, some family members, some friends, and everyone has said, “Wow, there’s a noticeable difference in the hair that you have on the top of your head.”

I see it. I haven’t worried about my hair for the last six months. It’s great. Every time I find I get out of the shower, I noticed there’s more, it looks fuller. So I’m definitely happy with the results thus far.

Dr. Robert Jones:
I hear that all the time. It’s like before people come in, they’re always, when they get up in the morning, looking in the mirror, worried about their hair and all of a sudden it’s one less thing to worry about when you wake up. So it’s nice. And it’s only going to get better. You’ve probably noticed quite a change in the last month or two, even.

Adam:
Oh, definitely.

Dr. Robert Jones:
That change over the next six months, you should have the final results at about 12 to 15 months. So, you should every month see a little bit more hair up there as well.

Adam:
Definitely. It was the best 28th birthday present I could have asked for. I turned 28 just a few days ago and definitely have more hair on my head than I did last year.

Dr. Robert Jones:
Wow. So you’re using the Propecia and you’re going to start using the minoxidil as well. Minoxidil, what you do is you just take a dropper and just drop once a day. We’ve got a 12 and a half percent solution at the office and you just put one CC, rub it in your scalp, starting as soon as you can really. The only side effect of the Minoxidil really is just scalp irritation in about one or 2% of patients. And if you get that, you just won’t be able to take it. So if you need that, give Pam a call and she’ll say set you up with it.

Adam:
Perfect. Yeah, the pills have been good. The Propecia, the Pro Scar. I haven’t had any side effects. I’ve been taking it since February or so and so far so good. And I plan yet to start the Minoxidil in the next few weeks.

Dr. Robert Jones:
So Propecia, it gets a terrible rap on the internet, but 99% of people have absolutely no side effects and they have more hair. So just tilt your head down so I can get a good look at the top and definitely looks much thicker at the top. The crown still has a little bit more. You were, I think, almost completely bald back there, but we put a lot of grafts in the back and then just run your hands up so we can see the hairline. So definitely looks… Nobody would identify that as a transplant. It looks very natural and should last you for years to come.

Adam:
I hope so. That’s the plan.

Dr. Robert Jones:
So the next follow up at one year. It’ll be interesting to see what the change is.

Adam:
I can’t wait.

Dr. Robert Jones:
Okay, bye for now Adam.

Adam:
Bye. Thank you.
