Interview Regarding Hair Transplants In Young Patients

Greetings,

Here is an interview I did recently with Spencer Kobren of “The Bald Truth” where I explained my approach to treating young patients wanting hair transplants.

I hope you enjoy watching.

All the best,

Hair Transplant Patient With Scarring Alopecia

Greetings,

This is a very interesting patient of mine. This patient, whom both he and his wife happen to both be physicians, presented to me complaining of hair loss in the frontal scalp, sideburns, and eyebrows over a number of years. The patient denied any other medical conditions.

On examination I determined that the patient most likely had a form of scarring alopecia and referred the patient to a local dermatologist for confirmation. A biopsy confirmed Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia and the pathology revealed that the disease appeared inactive.

After discussion with the patient and the treating Dermatologist we agreed that I would transplant a small number of test grafts in different areas of hair loss and we would see how they grew before proceeding with a larger procedure.

The test grafts grew well and the patient returned requesting a much larger procedure to create cosmetic density in the frontal scalp, sideburns, and eyebrows.

I explained to the patient that even if we were successful with the transplant procedure, there was always the possibility that the disease could recur in the future and possibly destroy the transplanted grafts. The patient understood and wished to proceed with the procedure.

The patient received 2521 grafts via FUT to the frontal scalp, mid scalp, and sideburns, and approximately 250 grafts per eyebrow. Care was taken not to pack the grafts too densely because of possible vascular compromise of the tissue to be transplanted secondary to the scarring alopecia process.

The results are shown after 1 year.

The patient is absolutely thrilled with his results and is now requesting a second procedure to increase the density.

I hope to provide updates in the future.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

FUE Eyebrow Transplant In A Male Patient

Greetings,

Here is a male patient who had weak genetic eyebrows and was looking for more density throughout. He did not want a linear scar so we performed the graft harvest via FUE.

The results here are shown after 6 months and the patient is thrilled.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

Donor Scar Revision

Greetings,

Here is a patient who presented to me after undergoing 2 previous procedures with another physician. He was having constant pain in the  donor region. On examination his strip scar was raised and 7-9mm wide and in certain spots there were 2 separate scars.

I decided to revise the scar in the context of the patients procedure to increase the density in his hairline.

While I was extracting the old scar I noticed that there were a number of retained nylon sutures in the wound that were left there and had never been removed. These were likely contributing to the pain and poor healing. I removed the retained sutures and revised the scar closing with a triuchopytic closure to get hair to grow through the scar.

I then placed 1003 grafts into the hairline.

The results of the hair transplant and the donor scar revision are shown below.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

Hair Transplant Video Testimonial

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who I perfumed a hair transplant of 2258 grafts via FUT. The patient has very fine, straight hair, which is the least ideal hair type when trying to maximize cosmetic density, but despite this the results are still significant and the patient is pleased.

The patient also had a previous procedure with another physician and discusses the difference between my procedure and his previous one.

I hope you enjoy watching.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

Hair Characteristics In Hair Transplants

Greetings,

Today I will discuss the difference in hair type for hair transplants. Based on studies 0.1mm increase in the diameter of the hair follicle can add up to 30% increased cosmetic density. This means that the greatest factor affecting cosmetic density is the thickness of the hair follicle. People with coarse hair will have a much better cosmetic result than people with fine hair with the same number of follicles. In addition, curly hair will yield a better cosmetic result than straight hair. Also, the less color contrast between the hair and the scalp (grey hair on light skin versus dark hair on white skin) the better the cosmetic result.

The analogy I typically use it to imagine a forest of trees in front of you. If the trees are thick with large wavy branches you will see through less of the forest than thin trees with small flimsy branches. This is the same with hair. Coarse curly hair will always yield a better cosmetic result than fine straight hair.

This is not to say that people with fine straight hair are not good candidates for the procedure, on the contrary they can be excellent candidates. Prospective hair transplant patients need to know this information in order to prepare themselves for realistic expectation of the outcome of their hair transplant procedure.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

 

High Density Hair Transplant

Greetings,

Here is a a patient of mine who received 4322 grafts to the frontal and mid scalp is 2 sessions via FUT. The results are shown 1 year after the second hair transplant procedure.

As always, rather than create a lower hairline with a lower density of grafts, I always choose to create a more mature hairline with higher density of grafts. This case demonstrates why I use this approach with my patients.

In addition, this patient also has very fine and straight hair, which usually does not yield the best cosmetic density. However, with the proper technique and placement of the grafts we can still yield results like this.

The patient is thrilled with his results!

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

FUE Hair Transplant To Hairline

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who received just over 1100 grafts via FUE to the hairline and frontal scalp. The grafts were extracted manually using a 0.8mm extraction tip.

The grafted region and the donor regions are shown 1 week post procedure and as you can see there is almost no evidence of scarring in the donor region and very little to be seen in the recipient region other than the new transplanted grafts.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

This is the recipient region pre FUE hair transplant and 1 week after just over 1100 grafts were placed in the hairline.

Hair Transplant To Increase Cosmetic Density In Frontal and Mid Scalp

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who received a hair transplant from another physician over 10 years ago. The grafts then were placed primarily in the hairline. The patient lost more native hair and presented to me with a thinned out hairline and very little hair in the mid scalp region. I transplanted just over 2000 grafts via FUT to increase the density in the hairline and the mid scalp.

The “after” photos are shown approximately 1 year after the patient’s procedure.

The patient is thrilled with his results.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

Hair Transplant To The Hairline

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who just returned for his 9 month follow up after receiving 1372 grafts to the hairline via FUT. The objective was to fill in and define the existing thinning hairline.

The patient is already thrilled with his results and he should see some additional cosmetic density over the next 3-6 months as the transplanted hairs thicken in diameter.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.
