Dr. Wong/6421 Grafts/ Two Sessions/ Strip/ Four Years Post-op


#1

This patient came to see Dr. Wong in January of 2002 for hair restoration and at the end of the day Dr. Wong and team extracted 3476 grafts in one session. Keep in mind that in January of 2002, this was an unusually high number for any clinic so this was considered a big session. This was the time period that Dr. Wong and Dr. Hasson started to develop their techniques for larger sessions.

Two years later, in 2004, the patient returned for an additional 2945 grafts.

Last month he returned for a visit and these are his results with 6421 grafts.

Hair is slightly damp in all after photos.

Excelent results; Excelent photos!!! … and so many of them!!!

Just one thing, you don’t often show the donor scar which would be helpful.

Marco,

Thank you for the comments. I unfortunately didn’t take these photos. When I do I try to remember to take photos of the donor scar but it’s usually secondary to the result on top.

I’m glad you like the results. I like posting these older cases because it shows our consistency and that we didn’t just start popping out great cases recently. Dr. Hasson and Dr. Wong have been consistent for years, it’s just the cases weren’t quite as big back then as they are now.

This is pretty conservative for Hasson and Wong. Usually I expect these results from Cole or Woods.

Hello,
So why dr. wong or dr. hasson? In other words, does each one specialize in a certain type of cases?
Cheers

Ah, but this is not 37,000 leg and back hairs:)

Remember, the first session was six and a half years ago. I don’t know if you were around back then but 3400 grafts in one session was considered to be pretty damn big. It is the equivalent today of getting about 5000 to 5500 in one session. The second session was almost as big as the first and it was four + years ago so while you may think it is conservative today (and you’d be correct) it was a pretty big deal back in the day. Comparing this work to current work by other clinics however says something:)

Boris,

That’s the 10,000 dollar question. Whenever I get that question, and I get it a lot, I just say that you should make that decision on your own. Look at the HUGE body of evidence that has accumulated over the years and decide what you like. Each has their own nuances that separate them but both are masters and have influenced the overall field dramatically. Think of it like this. If you like the Beetles, who is the better musician? Paul or John? Many like one over the other due to individual tastes but any Beetles fan will acknowledge that both John and Paul were two of the most influential musicians of modern times.

I like it. Do you dye the hair before the procedure?

Err, no. Why?

Hey jotronic. Great results. I love what I’ve seen from Hasson and Wong. I had a strip 6 years ago transplanted into my thinning frontal region and now need another. I have great donor hair but no scalp laxity. My scar area weeped/bled for a full year or more after my HT and the scar which started out pencil thin is now 1-1.5 cm on the sides. Is there any way to create laxity by releasing some of the subcutaneous fascia and pulling the lower incision border up? Or will this just create tension that will stretch the scar? What can you do to create laxity?

That dude looks so much better after the transplants it’s not even funny.

If his new hair was dyed black he would also look younger than 6 years ago.

Perhaps, but than you’d see more scalp.
His current hair color seems to compliment his hair density.

I agree. We can’t really tell the true density after he used color. Of course the guy did this to make it look thicker. It works well and looks good though.

I think he looks old with the gray hair and the mature hairline.

Funny how everybody is passing judgment without knowing his age.

Vegas,

I’m glad you like these results. For your case, or any for that matter, one strip that depletes your laxity tells me that the doctor that performed it didn’t know what he was doing and seriously misjudged things. There are a couple of things that can be done however to revise your scar. Surgically, it is called “undermining”. You can also improve it on your own by performing scalp exercises as seen here…

http://hassonandwong.com/mediagallery/av_player/index.html?PLindex=7&id=1&autoPlay=1

One thing that needs to be clarified however is that in a case like yours you need to do them all the time, every time you think of it and are in a position to do so. It seems like a lot of work but it’s worth it in the end and can help you to gain enough laxity for a proper scar revision. No promises on that because I know nothing of your case and of course the docs do not either but the scalp exercises DO work.

Regarding this patient, I’m rather stumped why some of you think he dyed his hair. It’s salt & pepper and it’s due to something called “age”. He’s in his middle forties. In addition, the flash from the old camera, again over SIX years ago, makes the hair look darker. This is an almost universal result of using a flash, among others. His hair is dyed neither in the before or after shots, period.

No I wasn’t around back then. If I wasn’t told who did this hair transplant, I would have placed my bets on Cole or Woods, never thought it would be Hasson and Wong. In my mind I have a tendency to categorize doctors based on their work, I think Cole and Woods’ work are very similar, and I like to pair Hasson and wong with Armani.

Boris, I think there are more results from Dr. Hasson in the forum than from Dr. Wong, if that is something that you care to know.

good transformation and very neat; it’s hard to say from the old pictures but the new ones from the side his density looks low in front of the ear, is it a result of getting that many grafts.

I dont like it when strip cases are shown without the strip scar. Makes me think the worst. Its difficult to buy that you didnt remember to take the pictures. Thats part of your job. It may not be the case, but not posting strip scar pictures makes me fear that the scar was too wide to be shown online.

Bigmac,

Thank you.

Bryan2,

Apparently you didn’t read the quote you inserted into your post. I did not say I didn’t remember to take donor scar shots because I did not take these pictures to begin with. The next result I’m posting will be HD video which I DID shoot myself and it has the donor scar included.
