Video (Repair HT - 1 year update) 5125 grafts FUHT + BHT


#1

Dear forum readers,
Videos are a much better way to show the results. Videos give a feel of the density and a depth that is missing in pictures alone.

The following is a link to the video that shows 1 year update.

The video shows the result with hair being brushed as well as with wet hair.

You may view the video at our blog,

Details of the patient

Patient Nickname - FR
Hairloss status - Would have been a Norwood 6 had he not got any HT surgery.

Past history
FR had undergone hair transplants, years ago, in US and then in Thailand.
In both the procedures, unfortunately, outdated techniques were used.
Plug grafts were transplanted at unnatural angles.

In July 2006, FR underwent a repair HT with us.
The repair HT involved a strip FUHT (3925 grafts) and BHT (1196 grafts).

He is happy with the progress thus far and has returned for more transplants.

We have all asked a certain doc on this site various questions on many occasions & he has always ignored us.

I have to hand it you Dr A, you always listen & respond. We said we wanted bigger pictures from different angles & your clinic started taking pictures the way we wanted.
I asked for video footage instead of photos, footage of the hair being combed & others asked for camera footage from above & you provided them.
All this guy needs is work on his crown & he his back to normal. I really respect your decision not to hide the bald crown in that video footage like some of the other docs do to create the illusion that their patient has a full head of hair.
All I ask is that the next time you make videos please include a close up of the hairline as well.
Good work Dr A.

Is it correct that he had 3 strip scars in his previous 2 transplants? What is his donor like now? Can you show that too.

Dr. A. is simply the most available Dr. to answer any questions.

The rest has to learn a lot from him.

FR had 3 strip scars. In his 2006 ht, the strip was taken in a way to leave only 1 resulting scar.
You may view the video of scalp donor at the link given below.

Dear forum readers,
Following are some pictures of the body donor area from where the grafts were extracted.

I will try and upload a video of the body donor area as it looks in July 2007.
You may notice a few spots in the body donor area on the chest. These are induced by ingrown hair and the simple way to treat them is to pull the hair out gently, using a clean tweezer.
Thereafter, apply Betnovate C cream or any other similar preperation to the spot.

Regards,
Dr. A

Dear forum readers,
Following is the link to the video of the body donor areas as they appear in July 2007. The chest and abdomen hair were harvested in July 2006.

The few reddish spots that you see in the periareolar regions are due to ingrown hair. Pulling out the hair and applying Betnovate C resolves them.

Regards,
Dr. A

Looks ok but i thought that 5000 grafts would cover more area, anyway he needs more grafts.

JonnyE,
FR wanted to go for a uniformly high density in the areas that are transplanted into. If you see the video of the brush combing through the hair, the density is deliciously high throughout.

The same number of grafts can be transplanted over a larger area for sake of thinner coverage but I believe Dr. A and FR chose the dense packing route after due deliberation.

FR was kind enough to send us pictures at the 3 week mark.

He is happy with the rapid healing of the facial donor area.

The 2nd picture is of the recipient area (crown) that was transplanted into this time. This is what it looks at 3 weeks.
