#1

Troy’s case updates were discussed at
http://www.hairsite.com/hair-loss/board_entry-id-17051.html

He visited us at almost 1 year mark for his 2nd stage HT.

The following is a video taken showing the hair 1 year after the transplant.

The video is taken with wet hair and with the comb separating the hair in different ways to show the naturalness as well as the density.

The hairline is very weak. I would expect more coverage for the amount of grafts transplanted (considering that this guy had loads of resident hair left)

Hate to say this but I don’t like this particular result one bit. Sorry just being honest here.

Dear Piperz,
Different physicians have their own approach towards hair restoration.
My philosophy of hair transplants includes -

  1. Impressing the need for future transplants on the patient, and planning the hair transplants accordingly.

  2. Designing hair transplants keeping the informed choice of the patient (the available donor hair #, the economics, the individual preference etc. ) in mind.

Planning a hair transplant with the Resident hair can be a huge liability in the long run.

If there is a strong forelock, for example, a youthfully ambitious hairline can be designed incorporating that forelock.
However, I have to point out to the patient that he may lose that forelock due to further hairloss and may need to go for further sessions in case that happens.

At this point, the patient decides whether he is comfortable going for future sessions or he wishes to go for a conservative hairline that can hold its own even after the demise of the resident strong forelock.

Troy’s choices have been included in his hairline design.
His second session has focussed on filling the crown area and closing the temple angles without any further lowering/alteration of the hairline.

If you wish to see patients of our clinic who have opted for a different approach, then there is Jiggy, Sunil, Ericgomes, Viking etc.

Viking

I value your honest opinions.
But, I can not tailor make aggressive hairlines for all patients, regardless.
Hair restorations have to factor in the informed choice of the patient (within limits of logic).

Regards,
Dr. A

Dear Dr Arvind,

First off I would like to say that I admire your ethics and I believe you are the most transparent doctor that posts on this board.

I also think you are one of the most talented doctors around. Still I have a little bit of a problem with your hairlines (just personal taste)

The pics you posted do justice to your work and amazing skills. Those are two impeccable results. Period.

Said that, I still believe that Troy’s work is a long shot from the ones showed above. I fully understand that many variables have to be taken into account when planning an HT. And I trust you do everything possible to meet the client’s expectations while pondering about the future progression of his/her hairloss.

The comment I made earlier have no reflection on the quality of your work. You are widely regarded by this forum as the most transparent and considerate doc around.

I just think that some of your hairline work could be better (and by this I mean look a bit fuller not lower)

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my post. I appreciate that

I agree JonnyE, everyone has their own preferences.
The treating physician should be best viewed as a facilitator. Not one who imposes his dogma on all patients.

Each patient requires an individualized approach. Theres no “one size fits all” when it comes to the restoration of hair.

Dr. A
