Greg’s chronicling of his NeoGraft journey continues with his reflection on his 7-day-post-procedure results. If you missed Greg’s pre-procedure blog, we’ll get you up to speed. At the Dermatology Center of Indiana we are sharing Greg’s personal journey as our NeoGraft patient with you. Greg is on the journey to love his hair, and he’s sharing his NeoGraft experience so that others may learn the patient-perspective through him. Greg Rakestraw has been a sports-talk mainstay in Indianapolis for nearly two decades, so he spends much of his time in the public eye. This makes NeoGraft the perfect fit for him. NeoGraft’s state-of-the-art revolutionary technology allows for patients to have excellent outcomes with high satisfaction. NeoGraft is the least invasive procedure of its kind—no scalpel incision, no linear scar, minimal down time, and minimal discomfort. Greg can get back to doing what he loves to do.
Greg’s Day #7 Post-Procedure Blog:
Finishing up day #7 with my brand new hair. I’m the one used to asking questions in my job, be it on the air or at a press conference. These days, I’m the one answering them. Everyone around the office, including while I’m doing segments on the air, wants to talk as much about my new look as they do Colts/Pats or ‘Deflategate.’ People are in amazement at various things . . . the fact that I spent 10 hours doing this in one setting, the fact that with NeoGraft technology over 3,000 hairs/follicles were transferred from the back and sides of my hairline to other places on my head to give my hair a fuller appearance, and the progress that they can see already in less than one week.
What stuns people the most is when they ask about the amount of pain I’m in . . . and I tell them zero. Sure, there’s a little itching that takes place from time to time, but that’d be the healing process taking place. I haven’t felt the need to take any sort of pain medication after the procedure since the morning after. That tends to catch people’s attention. And as I write this, I’m less than 4 hours away from the new ‘do making its debut on television. I can’t wait, just like I can’t wait to love my hair again.
