What patients should know... A closer look!


#1

Patients often start off as Norwood 3Vs potential Norwood 4As. Some cases that are previously treated are classic examples of patients who suffered from progressive hair loss over many years. Many years after a hair transplant, you might be able to see that a patient lost the pre-existing hair on the front and the transplanted hair was retained for many years later. Most of these patients probably would have had very little hair on front if the hair transplant had not been performed, hopefully, along with maximal medical therapy. Some of the patients will be satisfied, want to add more hair, or repair newly exposed plugs from earlier hair transplant methods. Sometimes the patients actually maintain the frontal hair line and a natural looking frontal scalp despite the hair loss.

After a hair transplant, native hair can be lost at any time in the future and there is no telling which patients will experience this progressive condition. Hair loss is not a linear progression and often times will require the patient to have a second procedure performed to maximize density on the recipient areas.

Hair loss can be devastating for an individual and can cause psychological problems. Any individual who is suffering from male pattern baldness can get online consultations to begin the process of hair restoration. The most important thing to remember is that more hair can be lost in the future and proper donor management must be a priority for each patient.:ok:

Well said, I am a firm believer in the “less is more” look. It’s too risky

Why do some patients get 5000 with moderate hair loss it seems? Are some clinics using single hair grafts or are they charging twice for each harvested and placed hair?

CIT,

I agree CIT. Hairloss can be devastating and in todays times full disclosure of medical procedures is a consequence of past horrific transplants for sub-standard procedures. Modern medicine stresses to explain and disclose all instruments used on a procedure that is to be performed on a patient.

Having said that, most of the FUE doctors that post on this site have disclosed their punch sizes. Drs. Bisanga, Rose, Mwamba, Iltler, Shapiro and most others all use between the 0.8mm up to the 1.0mm. Is it true that your CIT method starts at 1.1mm and its range is up to 1.3mm.

In summary, it will do your clinic nicely for a simple transparency of disclosure. Not a disclosure of you methods. But a simple disclosure of practically anything.

Thanks,

Bigmac

Hi Bigmac,

I couldn’t find when and where Dr. Mwamba or “MyWHTC” actually mention Mwamba’s instrument sizes in the forum and have you asked MyWHTC these same question’s by chance? Also, Are you trying to find these answers from every reputable clinic as well to compare each clinics’ methods and instrument sizes?

There are lots of differences from FUE clinic to FUE clinic and IMHO the results aren’t based on one specific tool so it would seem that results would be based on a range of tools along with the surgeon’s insight.

Do you know where Dr.Gho’s patient gallery is and what do you take from CIT’s response on Dr. Gho?

Thanks

GET OVER IT! You are hijacking all the threads with your obsessive punch size talk. Who cares what size punch they use, the truth is in the results.

Thanks for your opinion even though not a worthwhile one.
A simple answer to a simple question would suffice.
If you dont like my posts ,its simple ignore them.:crying:
The title says it all,“What patients should know”:yes:

Bigmac,

Were did Dr. Mwamba or Dr. Rose tell the forum about their instruments? Also could you respond to my earlier questions about Dr. Gho introducing the needles;?

Absolutely imperative that any potential patient understands this information. It should be drummed into anyones head before ever deciding on what one will do about their future before even beginning with a HT

Very well stated

Countless patients in their early 20’s have come to our clinic after realizing that they didn’t get the “pencil thin” scar that majority of well-known strip clinics market. The problem is that we are the bearer of the bad news because we don’t know for sure how much better we can improve the appearence of their strip scars. Dr. Cole approach to diminishing the after effects of strip scars is very methodical in regard to the appearence of the scar. Some scars are raised, have ingrown hairs, and have major inflammmation. Either way Dr. Cole is willing to treat any patient who seeks to better their condition.


#11

The problem is that they don’t tell you the details of how they take the strip. Seeing a strip performed it isn’t for the weak, let me tell you.


#12

I see a bunch of guys who’ve had strip with the tricophytic closures but they rarely show the results in the donor area? I wish there were more shown. Fue into the scar seems to be better in my opinion. What clinic’s do the tricophytic closures?
