Repair transplant doll hair- hdc medical


#1

Hello to everybody, the following case it will be interesting especially for those who have been butchered, unfortunately there are lots of people with this problem.

In this case the patient had received a typical butcher´s work, ugly scar crossed by multiple scars caused by excessively tight stitching resulting in a typical Frankenstein scar, plugs, irregular surface of the scalp with ridding and pitting due to the incisions. An example of lack of aesthetic sense.

The approach followed by the medical team it was:

-Extract those plugs who requires
-Extract a new Strip with which repair the previous one
-Obtain an additional number of grafts with FUE with which cover more area of the scalp
-Redesign the first line
-Restore a normal appearance to the patient to allow him to move one with his life again.

The number of grafts obtained finally were:
-First day: 1.382 FUE
-Second day: 2.280 STRIP
Total: 3.362 Grafts

Here you can see the evolution of the procedure from before to the current 6 months after the op.

BEFORE:



DURING

1º DAY 1.382 FUE:




2º DAY 2.280 STRIP:





AFTER 4 MONTHS:

6 MONTHS:

it’s no exaggeration to say that this is truly life changing even at 6 months. Well done HDC.

However Escar, I do feel I’m repeating myself when asking about UK patients? Are there none that you can point us in the direction of?

Very very nice work!

These hybrid procedures are interesting but a question arises.

If one has strip then it can be camouflaged by surrounding hair after the operation.

If one has fue then healing is fast enough so that after 14 days it is difficult to detect even though the hair is short.

If one has a hybrid then the strip is going to look very obvious until the hair has grow back an inch which could take a month or more.

What do you think about that problem??

Secondly, is the trauma from both procedures at once compounding?

Also, could you not have dealt with the crown in the same session with a few more fues?

HDC it’s a big transformation from before and a job well done.

1)The only photos showing a close-up from the front is not a clear photo and seem a little pluggy on the right still. But maybe I’m wrong and a clearer photo will rectify that.

2)What was the reason behind mixing FUE and strip? I think the strip was the better alternative in this situation because a) it was much cheaper and provide more money for more hair and b) gave a chance to redo and fix the previous frankenstein looking scar on the back. What was the reason of mixing FUE in there?

3)If the patient was going in for surgery then obviously he wants a change. Why didn’t the patient opt for more coverage on his head? He still looks as bald as ever. Only change I see is nomore dramatic pluggy look.

Just another reason why I always prefer FUE over strip. The scars are absolutely hideous. Nice job in the scar HDC…super impressive.

Hi Marco and thank you for the comments, I will try to clarify about your questions.

The truth is that both techniques have its own advantages and disadvantages. We can include on the disadvantages of FUE that its required to cut the hair very short, but the advantage can be that after few days there it will be no visible scars…

Concretely in a case like this one the donor are not good enough to provide a high number of grafts using one method only, so in order to obtain a good number without over harvesting the donor through one of the methods by itself

In this procedure there is no trauma beyond what for example mega session could produce.

The patient, who is a member of one italian forum, said few days ago when he posted the photos of 6 months:

Le foto le ha fatte ,il mio amico elefant nelle condizioni peggiori, luce del sole ,flash.
poi c’e’ da considerare il taglio con macchinetta , capelli lunghi pochi millimetri,quindi condiziona molto il risultato .
Prometto che tra un mesetto e mezzo di postare nuove foto con capelli alla lunghezza giusta.

Comunque ,per come partivo e la natura dei miei capelli ,molto fine ,direi che e’ un ottimo lavoro.

p.s. il crow ,personalmente non mi interessa piu’ di tanto ,mi sta bene cosi’.

In english:

The photos were taken by my friend Elefant in the worst possible conditions, sun light, flash.
to consider also the haircut with machine, hair very short up to few millimetres, this conditioned the result.
I promise that after one month and a half or so I will post new photos with the hair at proper length.

Anyway, considering from where I come from and the nature of my hair, extremely thin, I will say that it is an optimal work.

PD:The crown, I dont care really, it was not the most important for me and it is ok for the moment.

Hi Mj and thank you for the comments, let me reply to your questions.

1º Most probably it is an effect of the pic, I can assure that there is no pluggy effect in this patient when you see him in person.

2º The reason it was in order to maximize the donor capabilities, obtaining with strip as much as possible but leaving an almost invisible scar, and with FUE we can extract uf´s from areas that are out of the scope of the strip, this way we are obtaining more than what we will be able with one of the methods by itself.

3º It is everything a matter of priorities and perspectives, for a guy with moderate hairloss with no previous procedures this can seem not much, for a guy who came from the hell this is a new life, I know very well. Also from what the patient said one can extract his own conclusions.

Concerning FUE vs sTRIP I personally believe that both methods are good enough if are performed properly and by the proper surgeon, but anyway, this is the good thing, nowadays the patient has the option to choose what he prefer.
