Well I have a LOT of gratitude for you guys and I spoke from my heart.
I've been trying to get this situation behind me for a long time, I don't like seeing the bad work in the mirror everyday I would like to look normal and presentable to the world. I have to learn to stop being so hard on myself, but what those first 2 doctor's made me look like was unacceptable. A previous Doctor did improve my situation a bit but nothing close to what Dr.Cole did for me, and what he suggested for my problem in the future.
Finally after seeing 3 different surgeries with 3 different doctors, going through all that trouble, saving up all those thousands of hard earned dollars, hoping and thinking about way to make my situation look normal again, Dr.Cole come's along and actually give's me the solution I was searching for.
For the first time since this whole mess, I actually have hope because of Dr.Cole. His solution to use SMP for the FUE donor scars, and to blend the SMP with FUE grafts into the strip scar was pure genius! He is way ahead of the game.
I sent you that text while I was still in my car before I got home, I am home right now typing this on my computer and I was able to look at my donor for the first time since surgery, and the dang thing looks like 75% normal! That's amazing. I can't tell about the strip scar yet completely because the grafts have to grow through the scar to blend with the SMP, but the donor area looks SO MUCH better I can't believe it. What a massive improvement, I would like to give Dr.Cole a hug it really made me happy to see that. The donor looked really patchy before and it bothered me a lot and it looks so much more even now. No doctor has been able to give me such an improvement like this before. I have a ways to go still I am so happy with the improvement of the donor area already.
I would love to see how it looks when I grow my hair to a #2 guard as I really don't like going shorter than that, but if it still blends nice and helps fill in the patchy spots I would love to speak with Dr.Cole about using the permanent solution for the donor in the future. My donor looked even worse than my scalp except for that left temple, so what he did for me boosted my appearance significantly.
