Dr Hakan DOGANAY/FIXING BAD HAIRTRANSPLANT/7058 GRAFTS/CHOI Implanter PEN+FUE


#1

These are fixing bad hair transplants with 7058 Graft, Norwood 7 results from a 35 years old patient. He doesn’t use any medicine.

The patient had 2 unsuccessful FUT operations from another clinics before coming us, and there was a big scar on the donor area on the back of the head. The patient told us that he had to keep his hairs short since previous clinics implanted double and multiple hair grafts on the hair line, and since hairs on this front line were not natural at all due to wrong angles.However, when the hairs were short, the scar on the donor area was appearing. The patient suffered and he was wearing a cap in his daily life due to this situation.

We planned operations to make the transplanted hairs more natural, and minimize bad appearance of the scar. However, we told the patient that the supply of donor areas will not be enough to cover whole hairless area, and density will not be high.

FIRST OPERATION:

===> We extracted 312 multiple (mostly 3-4 hair grafts) hair grafts from the front line from the previous FUT operations.Then we implanted these hairs through vertex areas.

====> We waited 10 days after the first operation that the operation area from the first operation recovered. Then we extracted 1370 graft from the back of the head and implanted them to the hair line, and through middle area.

====> We implanted additional 2573 beard grafts in two consecutive days.

====> 1 day after implanting beard grafts, we extracted the flad of the scar on the back of the head from the previous FUT operations to make the scar smaller.

SECOND OPERATION:

====> After 1 year we managed to extract 965 hair graft from the back of the head since after our first operation the FUT scar was smaller.

====> Next day, we extracted additional 1838 beard graft since the supply of the beard area was still rich, and there was no any sign of the extraction after the first operation.

Whole process took 7 days, and the patient is very happy with his result from our clinic.

He got a micro pigmentation operation from another clinic without informing us, and unfortunately it seems that the result of this pigmentation operation is not successful. We are planning another operation to camouflage this pigmentation.

It’s quite an improvement, but the photography is tricky in those pictures, perhaps intentionally. I’ve seen countless photos where the details are glossed over. I don’t see any close up, top down photos, in the last, finished [pictures on this patient. And when you only show someone from the side or straight on in pictures, I know how those angles can make anyone look good. And for some reason, there are no pre-op photos where the patient has hair, we only see a shaved head.

Displaying ones photos properly says a lot about a clinic, as much as someone not displaying the photos correctly.

Don’t want to sound negative, but this aint my first rodeo, and I’ve seen some truly bad work that looked good in pictures. And then signed on to have some of it done to me. And I’m not saying this is the case here, not by a long shot. I’m very happy this guy had around 5K beard grafts planted, I did as well in my repair.

Wylie, what do you think about beard hair grown out? Do you think it looks pretty natural? Does it leave any scarring on your face? I read somewhere that beard hair is basically 4x what a scalp hair is in terms of coverage? I know scalp hair is the best option but if you are limited on scalp hair do you think beard is good to use as filler within scalp hair or would you suggest just using only scalp hair and letting crown untouched (bald) if you are not in need of a repair?

Thank you

I think beard hair is an excellent resource when properly utilized. Guys like Dr. Woods and Dr. Umar know how to to harvest these grafts but more importantly, they know how to utilize these grafts on a patient for a very successful look.

Beard hair does have a larger diameter, but it looks quite natural when surrounded by scalp hair, and would work as a stand alone source in the crown, in my opinion (my crown is bald)

The downside is that beard hair is more wiry and kinky, and that does not work well if you plan on growing your hair long. Works great if you have short hair, the shorter the better. But that is my experience, and other people might see a different result.

Thanks Wylie, Its good to get input from a patient and not just a doctor or rep. I appreciate your response. :slight_smile:
