Dr. Woods - Anthony: 2500 grafts, frontal restoration


#1

Dr. Woods’ patient.

Anthony had 2,500 grafts placed in the frontal hairline extending back to the start of the crown area.

Dr. Woods is the inventor of FUE and BHT hair transplant. For more patient results, go to www.thewoodstechnique.com or www.woodstechnique.com.au

This case was done in 2000.

My new website www.woodstechnique.com.au is under construction but can be accessed.

I intend to show never before seen photos and video going back to the mid 1990’s.

Soon , “daniels” 4 month post op beard hair scar repair photos will be there.
He is in the US and will send his own photos and video

“Hairyashell” called last week and his body hair procedures are showing even better results. As he is in NYC, he will take his own video and send to HAIRSITE.

That is an awful lot of hair for only 2500 grafts. What also would be nice is more info. concerning this patient: Where the grafts were harvested, immediate post-op pictures, and photos of the donor area

A beautiful head of hair. Wow, thats remarkable.


#4

Kudos to Dr. Woods. He has given this poor guy great hope.


#5

It was 8 years ago and his video is archived. As soon as I get it I will put it up.

It was all donor hair, the hair is coarse, the contrast is low , donor density was high and his BDR, ie balding area to donor area ratio is 1.5
(the BDR INDEX will soon be in a peer reviewed mainstream journal )

Exactly how I feel about the yield for only 2500 grafts, this is why I question Umar’s 22000 grafts; it’s almost 10X as many grafts for some very mediocre results, you can’t blame me for saying that these megasessions don’t make a lot of sense.

Craig,

What result are you calling mediocre? This BHT case?

Whatever it is you’re smoking, buddy, please pass it around.
Unfortunately, it’s clouding your judgement though. Otherwise, the detailed explanation of this patients case would make sense to you, and you’d actually appreciate the unprecedented life-changing work involved without having to question the graft amounts and ask “why so many?”

Unbelievable. Show me any doctor that has fixed anything in the realm of this patients case. ANY!

Trust me when I say that no HT doctor on earth would dare hold up their own “mediocre” repair cases next to this one, as they’d only be shooting themselves in the foot!

dude the 22000 grafts was basically all into scar tissue, you are lucky if one hair grew in that

compare apples to apples. you cannot throw out a figure like…22000 grafts here. compared to x number of grafts here without looking at are those body hair grafts…which the 22000 grafts were…you are comparing a scarred up head with only body hair grafts going in to repair it…with guys getting head hair grafts into virgin scalp

ridiculous

It’s about time. An index like this seems so obvious and informative. It is far more relevant than the norward scale. If it were possible to add an index of follicle surface area to scalp in the donor area then diagnosis is done. Well not really (refractive index donor miniaturization…etc etc) but they pale compared with the current inadequacies.

I concur with you.
The documentation is not good enough though. Dr. Woods should follow H and W and Dr. A’s thoroughness in documenting the results.
Crown pictures taken from the top and back will be great to know the real extent of cover the patient got. Its sad to see one of the top doctors not include all angles in presentation. The before shots show the top. The after do not. :frowning:

Very mediocre results? Most of Dr. Umar’s megasessions are repair jobs that very few would want to touch. Many of the unfortunate victims he repairs have no other recourse than BHT. To compare a regular head hair FUE HT and BHT FUE HT is ridiculous. Not only is he getting body hair to grow in these patients, he is getting it to grow in areas of immense scarification. Dr. Umar’s megasession repairs are awe inspiring, to say the least.

That is not to say he does not do regular old donor hair FUE ht’s. He only recommends BHT in the most appropriate of cases, as BHT does not have the same donor graft yield (singles) as head hair. His regular head hair FUE HT’s are more in line with the typical 1,000 to 3,500 grafts.

Just my two cents,

Atticus

Do you realize how stupid you make yourself appear to the forum by criticizing Dr. Umar’s work when he has consistently produced very successful results in some of the most severe cases anyone Dr. has ever taken on?

Evidently you don’t.

Arun, to be fair, Dr. Woods has been ahead of the game regarding documentation. I really think that deceitful or misleading are criticisms that just can’t be leveled at him. (stalinesque, maybe :slight_smile: )

I agre a crown pic would be nice but still this is very good growth for 2500g assuming the crown is still bald.

These photos just increased my desperation for a cellular solution to hair loss.How can someone justify charging tens of thousands of dollars for a transparent tuft of hair smack bang in the middle of a hairline?
Shameful!
Based on photos (which isn’t saying much) Umar’s results are miles ahead of W. The fact that Umar caters for the common man & not just the super rich speaks volumes too.

I challenge you to find another 2500 grafts that give better yield than this one. What good is a low cost HT if the grafts don’t grow.

I am sure I am not the only one who feels this way, most just don’t have the courage to speak their mind cause they know they will be silenced by the cheerleaders anyway.


#18

2500 grafts on a n/w6? I would say the yield is extremely high. Who say’s he is finished? According to Dr. Woods he has good thick donor. Double these grafts extend it to the back more then see. People should really take everyones level of hairloss into account when judging ht’s.


#19

I agree that Dr. Umar and Dr. A have better results. However, this result is not bad.

Dr. A doesn’t even do fue anymore most pics lately are strip.
