As I have said REPEATEDLY I am totally disinterested in HTs. I had 50 plus transplanted and I don’t like the way it looks. It was done by a high-ranked doc who does some celebrities. I pay NO attention to anything connected to HTs. I think if you get a HT you will be forever finding fault with it and I ignore virtually all news about HTs. Since FUE is part of HT it’s something I typically ignore and I’m not really interested in this issue.
[quote]are you serious?? FUE is follicular unit extraction… it has nothing to do with being scalp hair or not. Next to strip this is the most common form of donor hair extraction. I really can’t believe you dont know what FUE is.
I think he’s doing FUE transplants. Doesn’t fue transplants involve donor hair from other parts of the body instead of scalp hair? If it does then maybe they should try this same technique for regeneration on the scalp donor region instead of other parts of the body.

Has there been any news posted here about the revolutionary technique being developed by Carlos K. Wesley, M.D?
Apparently he’s devised a way to remove follicles by going under the skin laproscopically, thereby eliminating any visible scarring.
But most interesting of all, there is talk–which the doctor is not much commenting on at this early stage of his work–of donor regeneration.
I wonder if he’s using Acell–because if you were to place Acell beneath the skin, it would eliminate the problem of getting the Acell in place and keeping it there.
And it might also result in placing the Acell where it would do the most good: directly in the layer of tissue where the follicles resided before being harvested–as opposed to trying to stuff it down the tiny incision hole from outside the skin after conventional FUE harvesting.
Anyone hear about this? Have there been posts about this here?
I have read that Dr. Cole may have communicated with Dr. Wesley about this procedure–how about it, CIT, any news of this?
