And I thought my scars were bad. I have not seen that many scars on the head all over the head like that. I wish him the best. Dr. A, please keep us updated on this repair.


#3

I hope Dr. A can repair you.


Country wise discrimination of HT clinics is unfair

I wish all doctors took such excellent pictures as your clinic, its apparent there is no attempt to post deceiving images when the clarity is this good, as well as backing it up with video. Not much more one can ask for when desiring to know what results you get when you provide these types of examples.

I’m surely looking forward to more post-op pics., hope his surgery is going well.

Certainly there will be an improvement, for the following reasons.

The scars , horrific as they are, are relatively thin and narrow, and as seen in the photos with his hair grown out, are capable of being camoflaged with hair in the right places. A totally shaven head shows the whole disaster. But when “after” comparison shots are shown, his hair will be long

The worst scarring is HIGH above the forehead.

This means a symmetrical hairline can be created a few centimeters below these scars , and not be too low. And when grown out, this hair will hide the scars.
So, basically, he is a Norwood 6/7 with HIGH “concealable” scars.
Of course, the right temple needs to be brought down and in line with the other side.

His donor is thick and dense. He may even have good body hair etc, So if the transection rate is low and plenty is available, there is enough to do the front and hopefully the centre and crown.

An excellent result is quite achievable

So I sincerely hope it all goes well .

But calling this an "IMPOSSIBLE REPAIR ", is simply untrue. Even an “average” hairline below the scars with long hair covering them, will be a massive improvement .

I don’t mean to down play the fact that it is still a difficult job. I am just providing a little balance in view of some of the claims made about the impossibility of this case etc

And if Dr Arvind is doing this as a charity case, that is truly commendable and gracious, and he is entitled to good and fruitful publicity for helping out this poor guy.

Dear Dr. Woods,
How nice of you to drop by on this thread! So, I guess we are finally back on talking terms.

I am also glad you have, of late, found time to post quite frequently.
Readers and fellow doctors appreciate your comments.

And I agree with you! Nothing is impossible.
Especially, if some other clinic is doing it.

Have a nice day and my best regards,
Dr. A

Dear forum readers and fellow HT doctors,

There are diverse interesting aspects to Zayden’s situation.
Analyzing them is going to be educational for hair loss sufferers and future HT doctors alike.

A simplistic approach of creating a regular hairline in front of the flaps will prove not only unaesthetic, but disastrous.

  1. Zayden’s flaps have hair growing in three totally rare directions.

  2. The left flap is located in an unnatural location (as shown in picture below). To place more hair in front of this flap will make the already bad situation worse.

Regular hair transplant strategies will not work adequately.

We have completed this stage of his repair and much is visible in the pictures, but, I would still like to hear your thoughts. What strategy would you have adopted in his case?
Many readers may benefit from your comments.

I agree, his clinic does have very good quality pictures and video consistently kudos to Dr. A and good luck to the patient.

LOL, +1

I see that you took out his beard hair already, will he have any left after the surgery? I think he looks good with a beard and really short buzz cut. Poor guy, I hope you can help me.


#14

The extraction sites looking very good. Will bodyhair be used, and if not why?


#15

Looking good thus far. I dont think that a small portion of the scar above his left temple will be able to be concealed, but otherwise his frontal appearance looks as though it will be looking quite normal when this is grown out. Not sure what you can do with the previously transplanted hair growing at unnatural angles, unless you can surround it with hair that conceals its directional growth.

So far, so good! Best of luck on the repair, thanks for these updates.

Dear All,
I will be arriving to my home country tommorow, am now transit in Kuwait for 12 hours.
But Seriously, what happened in the pasty 5 days was really above my expectations.
I would like to thank you all for your care, specialy David who was the main reason to deliver my case to all of you and Dr.A.

I will prepare everything once I reach my destination, and for sure will be posting photos in a weekly/monthly basis.

Unfortunately, not all the pictures posted by Dr.A can be seen my place now, but I will be posting all the pictures from day 1 to 5.

Dr.A’s procedure was based on Beard, chest, Donor hair transplantation ( that’s the technical part).
and thefre is an artisitic part which will be clarified through pictures soon.

Good job Dr. A. How many grafts were used and what is
the breakdown?

Thankou for your kind regards, Dr Arvind

I can see you created a symmetrical hairline infront and below the high central scars, and you brought down the right temple, as I said you would do in my above post. That was logical, and you had plenty of donor and room to move.
That alone will improve this situation when the hair grows out

It is the LEFT flap which is more difficult.

Good luck with whatever course you take.

Angulation!!! angulation!!! how on earth was that handled!!!

Dr. A. One can only admire the genuine attempt that you have and are in the process of making for this patient. I hope that you can bring to bear the experience that you have worked hard to build over the years. I hope that Dr. woods sees fit to call you and discuss the case as caring colleagues. Best wishes, Marco.

Hey Marco. How goes the transplant research? You have been posting on these type threads long time. Have you booked your Dr. A procedure yet?
