looks good for how many grafts were placed but it is see through and needs more grafts.

This is what one should expect with only 3000 grafts on a completely bald area. No doctor in the world can give a full head of hair with only 3000 grafts. This is a realistic representation of what to expect.

The hair characteristics of this patient is that he has less than average follicular groupings.

Low groupings means that the number of hair per fu is low. The Normal is 2.2 hair/fu. If this patient had the normal, then it would be 6600 hairs (3000 X 2.2). Since he has low follicular groupings it means that the average hair/fu is lower than 2.2, say about 1.8 hair/fu which means that the final hair count for 3000fu is 5400 hairs (3000 X 1.8 )

The final result depends ultimately on the final count of hair rather than of the final count of fu’s.

This is a very good result by any standard and your strip scars are as one would hope (irrelevant at a reasonable hair length). The patient must be over the moon.

Was the crown covered? Without birds eye view, many pics like this have hidden a completely bald crown. This is not a criticism of the quality of the transplant which is good even with a bald or much thinner crown. It is a criticism of the guy who is in charge of your photographic strategy who should be fired.

The crown was NOT done. The goal of the procedure was to mainly frame the face, and to rebuild the frontal 1/3 as much as possible. That’s just what the doctor had accomplished with this patient. This is good yield.

No doctor in the world could use a mere 3000 grafts to rebuild a hairline, frame the face, restore the frontal 1/3 AND to fix the crown on a near bald man.

Forum members please be realistic with your expectations. Do not think that 3000 grafts is all you need to restore everything from the hairline all the way back to your crown. It is simply not possible.

Nice !:wink:

Well you did not and haven’t mentioned that the crown was NOT covered in the thread so far and nor have HDC, rather, you posted the following pic which gives the impression of total covereage. NO ARGUEMENT!!! You speak about false expectations that the crown could be covered with 3000 FU but unless you state that the crown was not covered then this is exactly the false expectation that these pics give.!!!

Bellow is an fair and clear representation by the GHI so that there is no false impresson. As I have said before, we pay a lot of money for a transplant. The least tht we can expect is a full representation of the results. Frankly if the crown was not covered then at least have the curtesy to say so in with the pic that gives impression that it was covered.

If you read my thread, I did mention that the result is good regardless but presentation is important.

It’s one thing if they showed us the CROWN in the before shot and never followed up with the respective AFTER pic. But that is not the case. The truth is that the crown wasn’t really shown in the BEFORE pic. The focus was on the hairline and the frontal 1/3 and that’s exactly what the BEFORE shot was trying to capture. You can, however, argue that a tiny bit of the crown can be seen in the BEFORE.

We can tear apart any pics we see in the forum if we really want to.

If someone wants, he can probably say the GHI pics in your post are too dark, too small, there is no close up shot of the hairline, no bird’s eye view from the top, etc etc.

Regardless, I have already requested and encouraged HDC to start using videos for both BEFORE and AFTER. Hopefully this will minimize debates about photos presentation in the forum.
