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.

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.

Horrible Strip Scar From Hair Transplant

Greetings,

Here is a patient who recently presented to me with these strip scars from another physician. The patient had multiple strip hair transplant procedures and on the last procedure these very wide scars formed. I do not know exactly what the physician did, or how the patient presented to the physician prior to the last procedure, but this should serve as a warning to both physicians and patients that this can happen if you are not careful. Each patient must be throughly evaluated to determine elasticity, especially after multiple procedures. Each time a strip is harvested the donor elasticity decreases, thus increasing the possibility of scar widening, or the inability to close the would. Tension on the would closure also increases the chances of shock loss of hair around the donor region. Many times the hair lost from shock loss comes back over time, but sometimes it does not.

Sometimes you don’t know you’ve gone too far, until you’ve gone too far. Patients will push the physician in some cases to go for more grafts. Physicians ¬†will want to make the patients happy and feel confident in their abilities. No matter how good you are, you must always be cautious and prepared for the unknown. It’s always obviously better to stop before you get to a problem.

With my success performing FUE I have been encouraging my patients who have had multiple strip procedures to consider an FUE procedure which will not affect a previous strip scar. If I feel it is medically permissible to harvest another strip, I always try to educate the patient that there is always the possibility of scar widening or shock loss around the donor region.

In this case, the treating physician tried to resect the scar with no success. I opted to treat the patient by extracting FUE grafts from the beard and transplanting them into the scars. I hope to post a follow up photo in 6 months showing the results of my procedure.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

FUE Hair Transplant After 1 Week

Greetings,

I am often asked what you look like 7 days after an FUE hair transplant so here are the images.

This patient received just over 1500 grafts to the frontal and mid scalp via FUE using a 0.85mm extraction tip.

As you can see with this small extraction tip the donor zone heals very well and there is basically no sign of any harvest after 7 days.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

1 Week After FUE Hair Transplant To Beard

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who wished to augment his beard and goatee region.

I extracted just over 1500 follicles from the scalp with a .85mm punch tip and using a flat blade to create coronal incisions which keep the hair lying flatter on the skin, I created the receptor sites for the beard grafts.

The photos below show the beard before and 1 week afterward as well as the donor region.

With the small extraction tip the donor regions heal very quickly with almost no visible sign of donor harvest after 1 week.

There is still a bit of redness in the beard which should resolve over the next few weeks.

The transplanted hair will start to shed after 1 week and will then regrow after 12 weeks with approximately half the result at 6 months and the full result at 12 months.

This is sneak peak into the patient’s final result and he is already thrilled.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.
