Dev - 710 scalp + 419 beard grafts (5 mth update) - Dr. A\'s Clinic


#1

Dear readers,
Our patient Dev has requested to post his serialized pictures on one thread.
He has chosen a gradual approach using scalp and beard hair.

This will be educational for patients researching their hair restoration options.

Dev’s HT details:
1129 grafts (710 scalp + 419 beard origin).

This is his first HT. Dev went for these many grafts as a personal choice.
He plans to undergo more HTs in future to complete his restoration.

More pictures to follow.

Good growth at suxch short stage, Dr. Ruby.
How does the beard hair texture feel on top? What is Dev’s take on that aspect?

The beard hair is good and thick. Good for adding volume to any area, but not to be used in hairline or temples. I am still debating what ratio of beard to scalp hair to use in the remaining bald spots. I like the idea to be able to add to the follicles on scalp instead of just relocating them from back to front.
But, I also like to keep a stubble. What do you think from my pictures?

Keep reducing the beard hair and increasing the scalp hair as you move forward. That way, you have almost/all head hair in the hairline.
