Prophet, congrats. I remember setting up your case a while back. Glad to see the improvement.

Also, thanks for spelling out the procedure details in the SUBJECT line of your post :slight_smile: it makes my life a lot easier when archiving the patient results. Much appreciated.

Looks good. But you need to fire your stylist. You have to cut your hair shorter on the sides. Number Three the sides…

I think this is a good example of a guy that can get HT successfully all the way to NW6. H&W placed the hairline at a sensible level and although it seems as if a relatively small area was covered, I think that it was almost all of the frontal third since the remaining forelock was small.

He has a lot of scalp height above his ears so there’s a good supply of donor and good density. He might get another strip without too much scar stretching especially since Dr. H is good at undermining.

To me this is an example of a guy that would do great to supplement with FUE gradually as things progress since he has all the right qualities and the hairline is in place and completed so nicely by Dr. H.

H&W, get it together for goodness sake. Get on the FUE train. You could even go to R. Jones for his training course;-)

this is a perfect example of a guy, who is nuts, if you ask me
does his hair look great, it sure does

what percentage of the available donor did he just use up?
3500 grafts of 8000(average available per patient)

close to 50 percent of his lifetime donor hair

what percentage of the top of his head did he just cover with this…
maybe 20 percent of the top area, near the front…

now he has thick nice looking transplant
if he loses his crown or goes to a NW7 he is totally screwed
no way will he be able to match this density, or for that matter have ANY donor left for a lot of the scalp that will potentially bald in the future

BUT HEY…IT LOOKS GOOD NOW…SO WHY WORRY, RIGHT?:stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:

maybe, maybe not. If he uses half the density for the rest of his head then even if this only represents 20% currently he would need another 6000 or 7000. I think he has covered 30% leaving a requirement of about 4000 at half density. As is allways the way hangin, I am right and you are plain wrong:-|

all the same the problem you are talking about is the big issue now days and worries me in my own sittuation.

if he needs another 6 or 7000 he is screwed, thats like 11k total

this is my main worry of transplants today, guys using up so much donor and getting a great hairline now

take Matt lauer, what if he got a transplant 5 yrs ago and used up 6k grafts and it looked great
now he is quickly headed to a NW 7

there is no way in hell he could ever hope to match or chase his balding scalp with transplants
even if he started now fresh, his density he would be able to achieve would not be worth the trouble

if he had already planted a thick top front, 5 yrs ago, and lost what he is losing now, he would look like an idiot,

but his hair is going so fast there is a chance that some of the hair that was tranplanted, had he done that, would have fallen out anyways

transplants nowadays are totally capable of producing great results TODAY
its the tomorrow…that I would be worried about


#10

I believe that the vast majority of those who choose to transplant a dense hairline are banking on a viable treatment (HM, PS1, etc.) in the near future to be their saving grace. If you live for tomorrow, you never quite end up enjoying today.

ya HM that will be here in a year or two…NOT


#12

Guys its simple the only reson transplants look good today is because of the drugs people take that save their existing hair, if the drugs stop working these guys are in trouble.Its still a deal with the devil, just like the guys that wear wigs…

…you will always worry that something might go wrong and the drugs might stop working so good…You are trapped to use more powerfull drugs later on, that might bring you sides eventually, and then you suffer them and cannot go back because you will look like a freak.

you only need look at Senator Joe Biden

or entertainment host Pat obrien, of Entertainment tonight

both look ok from the front, but are almost Nw7 And look absolutely ridiculous from the back with the fake transplanted hairline on top front

Biden actually does not look as bad as far as temple recession but his transplant is worse, looks unnatural,

Obrian has such receded temples and from the back he is a NW8 Almost if there is such a thing

as long as you dont view either guy from another angles except the front they look somewhat normal but, sheesh, to me it still ridiculous almost worse than a bad toupee


#14

Let’s not forget there is always body hair as a safety net. I can see why guys are doing more aggressive procedures these days.


#15

How can body hair be a safety net when even doctors say that depends on the case and the quality and quantity of the body hair the result and…if they grow at all.

Furthermore they are different than scalp hair and they look weird…we all want hair but some prefer no hair at all than weird hair


#16

Body hair is not a safety net… no where near. In any event look at this.

WTF? that’s a nasty scar. all the more reason to ditch strip surgery and go with FUE.


#18

Who is he ? I love exposing the celebs who had HT :slight_smile:


#19

Might just be an indent from a tight eyeglass strap. Looks like an awards banquet. If he had a strip scar that obvious, I wouldn’t think he would cut his hair that short and let it glare forth on the big night.

Quick Improvement
