Dusting the Mid scalp and Crown -2000 non scalp SFET grafts- 6 months result


#1

This patient is NW 6 with a history of prior strip HT with a resulting loss of head donor hair supply. His strip HT gave him a mature hairline and a fringe of hair in the frontal scalp. However he was left with a slick bald crown and midscalp with NO room for head hair donor extraction. He desired a “dusting effect” of these bald areas using non scalp hair.

6 months ago, 2000+ grafts were transplanted by SFET utilizing the following donor sources:

Beard 1340
Chest 326
Nape of neck 306
Pubic area: 126

The foregoing are before and after photos in a self explanatory sequence:

Beard (before) and at 6 months

Chest (Before) and at 6 months

Mid scalp and Crown (Before) and at 6 months

Crown (Before) and at 6 months

The top from front at 6 months

Obviously his result should continue to improve with time.

The patient has at this 6 month mark had a further 1000 beard hair added to his crown fringes

Happy New Year to all

Looks good Dr Umar!! I’m sure he is pleased and that is why he is back for more. I would consider this a good result even if it didn’t improve with time. That is a lot of completely “slick” bald area behind the hairline.

BTW, this is a perfect example of why one should choose a conservative hairline because of additional balding in the future.

There ain’t anything wrong with that! That “dusting” has made a big difference and removes the cue ball look.

“Obviously his result should continue to improve with time”

Replace the word obviously with possible or probably. I am surprised you are so certain especially considering that scalp FUE does not always achieve much better results.

Great work and happy new hair!

It definitely took the shiny away.

Generally, transplants improve progressively over the course of the first 12+ months. The sproutings that occur in the first 3-6months would mature in caliber, texture, shine etc in the months that follow thereafter.

Dr. Umar do you have after photos of his chin?

» Dr. Umar do you have after photos of his chin?

Botht the before and after photos are in the leading post. They look similar because the healing has been excellent at only 6 months after extracting over 1300 SFET graft extractions. If you study the after photos closely, you will notice it has less hair than the before photo.

This is the after photo of the chin:

One of the amazing things is that (to me anyway) it looks like some of the hairs are already 3 inches in length. Hair grows on average at 1/2" month so that is some pretty good growth considering. He will get additional coverage just from the hairs growing longer.

BTW, I think my beard hair grows a little faster than my scalp hair. Is that possible?

Is is correct to assume that this patient came for a second pass?


#11

I see new hairs and shiny spot is gone but is it worth it? No offence but he still looks very bald.


#12

» I see new hairs and shiny spot is gone but is it worth it? No offence but
» he still looks very bald.

That is a question that each person has to individually answer. For some, they might say it’s not worth it. Clearly, I think this guy believes it is worth it otherwise why would he be back for a second pass.

He looks like an older gentleman so he probably doesn’t have the same standards some of the younger folks might. I’d also wager he is pretty pleased with these results after being able to see nothing except a shiny noggin previously.


#13

He needs to cut his hair short all over rather than leaving the front so long. It will make a huge difference. He is wearing a comb over right now. No good.


#14

Thats good cinsidering he has used very lttle scalp hair for crown.


#15

» Thats good cinsidering he has used very lttle scalp hair for crown.

Definitely and improvement but im still not satisfied with BHT.


#16

If I were in his shoes Id be a happy man.

Although Id want to have some more density.

Dr Umar, do you have immediate post op pics of the recipient crown and whats the density of the grafts in the crown?


#17

Dr. Umar, howdoes the beard hair look and feel in person? Thanks
