Hair Transplant Brother to Brother ( Identical Twin Brother)


#1

Hair transplant Brother to Brother

P1 had been two times hair transplant surgery with other clinic were the result unsuccessful and P1’s donor area wasn’t enough for third operation due to previous surgeries.

P2 hasn’t been done hair transplant yet but he would like to have first operation with Dr. Hakan DOGANAY.
Before surgery we investigate all related test and blood examination with taking blood sample and we confirmed that they have same DNA code that gave us opportunity to use P2’s graft to S1 who had bad surgeries so we planned hair transplant for identical twin brothers. We did hair transplant for both of them at same day in different operation rooms.

OPERATION DETAILS:

First we started to extracting grafts from P2 who is donor of P1 in total we obtained 4000 grafts (3000 from scalp + 1000 from beard). We planned 1500 grafts of those 3000 grafts will be implanted P1’s front head.

At the same time we extract 1300 beard grafts from P1 for his vertex. we did not shave P1’s hair because he doesn’t have enough donor on his back of head.

In total 2800 grafts (1500 grafts from P2’s scalp + 1300 grafts from P1’s beard) were implanted on P1’s front head and crown, the rest of 2500 grafts (1500 grafts of those 3000 grafts from scalp + 1000 from beard) were implanted to P2’s front head.

After the operation we investigated those identical twin brothers for 3 days in our clinic likely we hadn’t seen any complication.
We will go on to share the pictures monthly when we receive more pictures from those brother.

this is huge! Person to Person transplantation !!!


#3

Can this be done for brothers who are not identical twins?


#4

I wonder if this is allowed in the U.S and whether it will be subject to the same scrutiny as organ transplants.


#5

This only works on identical twins that have the same exact same DNA. If hair follicles were transplanted to a different un identical person it would be rejected. Only way is for a patient to be on anti rejection meds but it is not suitable for nonlife saving situations because of the complications that comes with these med.

macgyver1 thanks for your comment. As macgyver1 said this only works for ıdentical twin brothers as you can see on the pictures there is no complication after operation. ( Pictures had been taken 3 days after the operation)
