FUE Hair Transplant in Norwood 6 Patient

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who had hair loss classified as norwood 6 on the norwood hair loss scale. This essentially means that most of the hair on top of his head had been lost secondary to genetic hair loss.

I performed a follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant using a 0.85mm punch tip. I personally extracted each and every follicle. Many other physicians delegate the extraction component of the procedure to technicians but I prefer to perform the extractions myself.

The patient is thrilled with his results and plans to return for another procedure to create even more cosmetic density.

FUE Eyebrow Transplant In A Male Patient With Scarring Alopecia

Greetings,

Here is a male patient of mine who has a case of LPP which is a form of scarring alopecia. He has lost small patches of scalp hair in no specific distribution secondary to the disease process and he los all his eyebrow hair as well. He previously had an eyebrow tattoo and was disappointed with the look and presented to me for eyebrow transplants.

I explained to the patient that scarring alopecia is a very unpredictable process and that no guarantees could be made as to the success of the eyebrow transplant. Due to the fact that he had scattered patched affected in the scalp I felt our greatest chance of success was to perform the procedure with an FUE harvest and to find unaffected areas of the scalp to harvest the donor hair from.

I personally harvested every follicle using a 0.8mm motorized punch. We only placed single hair grafts into the eyebrows. We placed approximately 270 hairs per eyebrow.

The results here are shown after only 6 months. The patient should see some increased growth over the next 2-3 months.

The patient is beyond thrilled. The lack of eyebrow hair previously was a constant reminder of his disease process and the new eyebrows have given him a new self confidence.

Corrective FUE Hair Transplant

Greetings,

This is a patient who previously underwent an FUE procedure performed by another physician with unnatural results secondary to the placement of large grafts in the hairline. I created more density and placed single hair grafts into the hairline to create a more natural look. The grafts were harvested via FUE using a 0.8mm motorized punch tip. Approximately 400 single hair grafts were placed into the hairline to create a much more natural look.

Unfortunately there are many physicians offering hair transplants that are not properly trained. It is imperative that you do your research before deciding on your surgeon and always chose someone who specializes exclusively in hair restoration.

FUE Grafts Into Scalp Scar Resulting from Break Dancing

Greetings,

Here is a very interesting case of  a patient who was a frequent break dancer in the day. His continued head spinning cause the hair at the top of his head to fall out in the exact spot where the scalp received repetitive trauma. Anything that causes repetitive trauma to the scalp can cause the hair in those places to fall out.

I harvested approximately 150 grafts via FUE from the back of the scalp and we transplanted these grafts into the area devoid of hair.

The results are show after 1 year. The patient is thrilled.

Beware of Hair Transplant In Young Patients

Greetings,

Here is a patient I recently saw in consultation who had received a FUE hair transplant of over 3000 grafts at age 21 from another physician. He is now age 24 and wanted me to evaluate his results and ask my opinion about his options moving forward. I was dismayed to see how his donor region had been completely depleted to the point where it was almost see through at a #4 haircut. When FUE is done properly in a patient with average density you should be able to cut your donor hair to at least a #2 haircut without seeing any sign of thinning. In addition, his hairline had been transplanted in a very aggressive pattern (meaning very low). To perform a hair transplant on a 21 year old male who is predicted to advance to a severe hair loss pattern is never a good idea. To to this to a 21 year old patient with an aggessive hairline is just plain wrong.

After more questioning the patient shared that he was treated by a local plastic surgeon who does not specialize in hair transplants. The surgeon had purchased the Neograft machine and had technicians perform the entire procedure. I was not surprised to hear this after seeing his results. Beware of other specialists that do not  specialize in hair transplant procedures with the Neograft machine offering hair transplants through their clinics. I have seen many cases over the past few years of botched hair transplants and routinely I hear the same thing. They went to a physician who is well known for another specialty and got sold on having their technicians perform the entire procedure with their Neograft machine.

Hair transplant surgery is both an art and a science. it is not a specialty that one learns in a weekend course, and it is not an art that should be taken lightly.

In this patient’s case he does not have enough donor hair to fill in the massive area of balding below his unnaturally low thin hairline. In addition, he is only 24 and will lose all his additional hair on top of his head over the next 8-10 years. His options include removal of the unnatural hairline via FUE and recycling of the grafts further back. His donor on the back and sides is almost depleted so his best option is to use beard and body hair for increased density.

In the photos below I have drawn in where his hairline should have been transplanted to show the contrast to where it actually was. I always say it is better to have a higher hairline with higher density versus a lower hairline with lower density. No one has unlimited donor hair and especially in young patients predicted to proceed to advanced hair loss there is never enough donor hair and it all needs to be used very judiciously.

This patient looked like he had less than 1/3 of his harvested grafts actually grow. Received a very unnatural hairline. Should not have had a procedure at age 21 to begin with.

Beware of having a hair transplant under the age of 24 and when done it should be in a  very conservative fashion.  Also, beware of physicians that do not specialize exclusively in hair transplant surgery.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

Long Hair FUE Hair Transplant

Greetings,

FUE hair transplants are the process where individual hair follicles are extracted with a tool and then transplanted into areas of hair loss. In order to extract the follicles the hair needs to be cut down to it’s shortest length above the skin so that the hair doesn’t get tangled in the tool extracting the grafts. This means shaving the scalp in most cases.

For patient’s having procedures which require less than 1500 grafts extracted there is now another option. The patient can grow the hair in the back and sides longer and we can shave either one large strip (smaller than the length of the hair) or multiple smaller strips (also smaller than the length of the hair) which allows the native long hair to hang down and cover up the extracted areas.

This allows the patient to keep the long hair and not shave the entire back and sides of the scalp and still have an FUE hair transplant. This technique is becoming very popular amongst actors (who can’t change their appearance if they have longer hair in the midst of a recurring show) and other individuals that do not want such a dramatic change to their appearance. The results are just as good as the full shaven technique and it is proving to be a very popular alternative to traditional FUE shaving.

I have included some photos of a recent patient I performed this technique on.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

Mustache FUE Hair Transplant

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who wanted a Tom Selleck circa Magnum PI mustache. His mustache was a little thin genetically.

I harvested just over 700 grafts via FUE using a 0.75mm extraction tip from the neck beard. That way I would be transferring hair from one area to another that has the same quality to it.

The “after” photos show the patient one week after the procedure and as you can see the scarring from the extractions in the donor area is almost invisible and the mustache appears significantly wider and denser than it was pre procedure. The patient will shed most of the transplanted mustache hairs and they will regrow starting at 3-4 months but this photo is a sneak peak into the final result that we should see in 9-12 months.

The patient is thrilled and excited to see his final results then.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, MD
