The Repair Case -An Update On Patient Flash


#1

Flash is a most extreme repair case that was referred to me by another HT repair clinic 2 years ago. By the time he saw me, he had undergone the full spectrum of antiquated hair loss surgeries over the prior several years; Including flaps, several scalp reductions, pluggy strip styled HTs, donor depletion etc.

He has also experienced the full spectrum of complications from these procedures, from radical disfigurement, scarring, pitting, plugs, ridging, misdirected hair from flaps and scalp reduction, depleted donor.

I have completed his repair and hereby present an update reflecting his progressive improvement. He has been presented in these forums previously.

Being head hair donor depleted, his is an example of a genuine body and beard hair based repair

The foregoing sequenced photos are self explanatory, Please scroll down to the end of this post for his results:

Simply spectacular !! This is a result of sheer dedication and compassion by Dr Umar. I can tell you from my own experience Dr Umar will not give up - and Flash is yet another example.

All body and beard grafts and nothing else? what is the graft count?


#7

WOW! That is amazing work. I went from feeling bad for the guy to jealousy, all in one posting!

Dr.Umar continues to slience the critics.

Including the critics who post inequitable photos on this site from their clinics.

You know who you are, and so does everyone else.

Indeed Dr. Umar has done some amazing work, however procedures like this, 20k or so grafts, or even 10k grafts, at 6-7 bucks a pop is not affordable by many “average joes” like me. And with single body hairs, you have to expect to get a lot more grafts to achieve density. Wish I could afford it. :frowning:

He needed that many grafts because he was butchered before, my feeling is that if we try to do it right the first time then we won’t have to deal with repairs requiring 10k, 20k grafts.

A dramatic change for the better.

Can you give us an update on your acell experiments? Do you plan on posting any progress or lack of on your website like dr jones has?
Thank you

Blackjak makes a very good point regarding total numbers needed in Flash’s case for repair. With the advancement of todays FUE resources (using scalp and body hair) the scarring experienced in Flash’s and so many cases should soon be a thing of the past . I myself had to use up to 5000 grafts to repair bad strip scars and thankfully not anything close in comparison to what Flash has undergone in his experience.

Looking at repair cases that take large numbers of FUE grafts can often cause others to take a look back and second guess the effectiveness overall for FUE grafts without first looking at home many grafts it took initially to repair scars that absorb large numbers of overall grafts for repair.

I am normally not a big fan of these mega BHT cases, I admit this one the improvement is very dramatic, I am sure Flash is thrilled considering what his hair was like before.

So you would have needed 14,000 grafts without the scarring? That is still pretty expensive for us “joe sixpack” :slight_smile: guys.

Congrats on your successful procedure. Your result is awesome to say the least.


#18

The Transporter- your estimate would be right . I had approx 14,000-15,000 placed in the Norwood area with the remaining into the scars for a camoflauge effect

yes, video please, I bet his virgin hair was never as curly as what he has on top now, I am curious to see how it looks in a video.
