CIT delivers consistent quality results- VIDEO & PHOTO included


#1

Hi forum views and bigmac,

Here are the some results of patients who came to us from well-know clinics. There are many photos and a couple videos showing rebuilt hair lines or naturally balding heads. When we perform repair cases, we like to ask our patients whether their goal is to have more hair or to be naturally bald. Of course there are numerous degrees of coverage that may be achieved.

When a patient wants to have hair and be natural, the best way to transform them is to add hair without taking out hair. Once the new grafts have grown in, we can selectively remove grafts that are very unnatural or we can try adding a little more. Taking hair out is a little risky because the patient usually never gets a 100% return on the removal process. If you take out 50 hairs, you might get only 30 back. We encourage all of our repair patients to brainstorm on the subject before making any decision.

When an individual looks like they underwent a hair transplant procedure, they are willing to try just about anything to look natural. Once they look natural, they often change their goals and sometimes want to have more hair, as well. This is one of the risks associated with just taking out grafts and I’ve seen it happen before. We’ve had patients who wanted to be naturally bald. Once we go through the extensive process of hair removal and making them look naturally bald, we have seen patients come back and suddenly have a desire to have more hair that looks natural. Therefore, we strongly encourage patients to decide their ultimate goals before we begin. If patients want to add more hair and want it to appear natural, it is usually better to add first and take out later if required because you will usually find that you do not need to remove much hair. It is very important that the younger patinets consider the long term consequences of trying to have more hair. The must all seriously consider the financial commitment involved because it can exceed the budget of many younger patients. I have attached some repairs accomplished via CIT, please observe the intricate details involved.

Good repair is hard to find. There’s like no question about the results. Maybe it’s me, but does anyone notice any scarring. Whatever the instruments are, they are workin’. Very nice!

There are no after donor shots so how can you comment on scarring???

Hi Marco,

Each repair patient will have extensive scarring in the donor area before coming to our clinic. Old plug procedures and very unnaturally appearing work in general usually compromises each patient’s donor area resources. You will ususally find the “shot gun” scars on these donor areas. We are usually unable the harvest any further grafts as the donor resources have been tapped.

Once CIT repair is accomplished, Dr. Cole will usually require the sutures of the area to be in place for a minmum of four days. In our experience, we do not even see 10 percent of our major repair cases . Patient who do choose repair must truely understand that as you de-bulk the pluggy area, the follicular density of the repaired area is a trade-off. Some patients who only want to eliminate the large plugs may need more that one visit.
These unsightly plugs can contain anywhere from 4 to 12 hairs per FU.

The initial appearence of the affected area will appear red immediately post-op and scalp slightly raised. The area may require the patient to apply a concealer to minimize any discoloration of the area where the repair was performed. Patients may see slight pinkness of the area from three to six months and up to a year as the scalp reforms to heal. A disadvantafe to this procedure is that often times skin will be affected by the blood flow of the larger plugs being removed. Other treatments are available to help any minor discoloration.

Below is a live surgery video of an extensive plug removeal followed by a healing result of another patient just months post-op

Repair is depressing. I know a guy who had a procedure in the 70s. He makes enough to get repair but I think that he is used to it. How much is this repair procedure ?

Repair is almost always more difficult than transplanting into virgin scalp. In a typical case of hair transplant, less scar tissue is involved and survival of the newly transplanted hairs should have adequate blood supply in the recipient area. Repair is often referred to as Plug redistribution. We may decrease the size of the plugs to reduce the appearance or totally remove them. This type of repair requires an unknown amount of time in almost all cases. Patients may have extremely difficult plugs to remove or may have plugs that are easily removed. In most cases, tests are accomplished for a flat rate so that the surgeon and patient are aware of the degree of difficulty is made apparent. Tests are also done so that the patient will have an idea of how well the scalp will heal. Patients usually will have a few plugs redistributed and have the healthier harvested hairs placed back into the patient’s donor area.

What kind or how much donor is usually left? Healing from what I see is fabulous.

Hi Marco,

There isn’t much to comment on when a plug procedure has been performed. The surgery is on the frontal scalp to give the patient a more natural appearence.

Here are some photos of Plug scarring A.K.A. “shot gun scarring”:
