2 year update: 4800 grafts BHT / 1000 grafts FUE scalp


#1

Here is an update on a patient who recieved approx. 4800 body hair grafts via CIT from the chest and the back over an 8 day span. The patient has a very thin donor area and huge scars all over the back of his head. It was almost impossible to take grafts with a strip procedure. Because the patient could not allow us to shave a large area of his scalp we were limited to only 1000 grafts with CIT from his scalp donor area. This patient’s only solution was to transplant his body hair. Fortunately, he had an abundance of hair on his back and chest. As you can see from these photos he is healing fast.

It is important to note that we have not always had good results grafting the hair line with body hair. Sometimes it seems to work quite well and sometimes it does not. It varies from one person to another. We’ve also seen good body hair growth in the crown with an individual, but poor body hair growth on the frontal hair line.

Based on our findings, it is best to perform a test first to see how you respond to body hair and how you perceive these results. Sometimes the growth is good, but the result is subtle and produces a limited aesthetic improvement. Some individuals will be quite pleased with this subtle improvement, while others will not. It best to see how you respond and how you perceive the results prior to having a larger procedure performed. This patient responded quite well to a high density of body hair, but not all patients have as good a response to higher density body hair. Therefore, we recommend a lower density and more passes or sessions to help improve the chance of a higher yield.

Body hair growth can also be poor in some individuals. In our experience body hair seems to almost always produce growth, but one cannot predict who will get a good result, who will be happy with their procedure, and who will get a poor result. Larger sessions can produce a poor yield in some individuals. There is still much to learn with regard to body hair transplantation.

Whenever possible you should utilize your scalp hair first and body hair as the last line of defense against hair loss.

Very nice body hair result!

This man looks like an entirely different human being than the first photos Ive seen of him (when he had reddish hair) years ago.

He has obviously had alot of facial plastic surgery and chemical peels on his face also. His skin is quite different now. I imagine he uses copper peptides on his face also.

It is one of the “success” stories in cosmetic surgery so far because he didn’t do anything gigantic to his face, but subtley erased the signs of ageing without trying to remake it with large implants anywhere or botoxing it to death. He did it the right way and has a eye-opening result

MMMM… I dont’ know I think this result looks impressive mainly because of the facial characteristics of this patient which were terribly enhanced by the appearance of a full head of hair.

I don’t like his hairline though. I really don’t.


#6

That’s a great look on him. Yep, he looks at least 10-15 years younger.


#7

Yes, I remember this patient from a few years back - a lot of guys were giving him flak over a bad dye job.

But he looks a hell of a lot better now. Very good BHT result. I would like to see a crown / top shot, though.

Also, I’d like some clarification. Is this 4800 grafts ON TOP of what he had with Dr Cole a few years back, or is this the maturation of that result?


#8

Very impressive if this is really 4800 body hair on top. You sure it wasn’t a typo, maybe 4800 scalp and 1000 bht instead?


#9

Very natural, the body hair blends in perfectly with his own hair.


#10

CIT,

I assume this is over 1 year post op? I need this info for the patient statistics.

Please remember to include these info in the SUBJECT line of your first post from now on, otherwise you may not get proper credits for the results.

  1. Technique (ie: FUE, BHT, STRIP, repair etc)
  2. of grafts

  3. How many months post op.

Thanks.


#11

Losing the moustache is a good idea, this combined with the hair transplant make him look 20 years younger. I totally agree.

Ipod,

This patient recieved approx. 4800 BHT grafts due to the extensive scarring he had in the donor area after having multiple strip (FUT) surgeries before coming to our Atlanta clinic.

Do you have a pic showing the back? I wonder how long or how short he keeps his hair.

IN MY OPINION there is NO way the last after photo is a true representation of the way this man’s hair looks in real like in regards to actual density and coverage with 4800 BHT and 1000 Scalp hair.

By the way, did I say IM MY OPINION, NO WAY 4800 BHT and 1000 scalp hair made this man’s hair in real life look as full and as dense as it appears in the photos.

Wet his hair in the after picture and post it.

YOU WON’T DO IT AND I KNOW YOU WON’T AND I KNOW WHY YOU WON’T!!!

The members of the forum are waiting on you to post before and after photos of this man’s hair WET!!!

Tick tock.

Attached are follow-up photos of the frontal recipient areas. The growth in these areas is definitely apparent. This patient dyed his hair at the 14 month mark as you can see in the photos. All photos presented of this real-life patient are untouched. You are welcome to share more of your opinions.

Congrats to this patient on the improvement!

I wasn’t asking for the crown pic, I was asking pic showing the back.

well…

white hair+ white scalp=denser look due to lack of contrast.

1000 FUE grafts probabally went in crown and around sides. bht doesnt necessarily work.

post a pic of the donor area if possible. DONOR…
