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.

Eyebrow Transplant Video- Plastic Surgeon Testimonial

Greetings,

Here is a eyebrow transplant video showing every step in the process of an eyebrow transplant procedure. My patient in the video is Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Cat Begovic. Dr. Begovic is a world renown surgeon and she was very meticulous in her research before deciding to have me perform her eyebrow transplant procedure. In the video she describes the entire experience in her own words. I hope you  enjoy watching.

All the best,

Beard FUE Grafts To Cover Strip Scar and Add Density

Greetings,

Here is a patient who came to me after having undergone several previous procedures and scalp reductions with other hair transplant physicians.

He wanted to add hair to his mid scalp and crown (where there was virtually no hair and a scalp reduction scar) and to attempt to conceal a very wide donor scar from his previous strip hair transplant procedures.

I extracted just over 900 grafts from the neck beard and placed them into the scalp and scar. The results are shown after 9 months and they are already impressive.

The patient should see some increased density over the next 3-6 months as the hairs thicken in diameter.

Although the beard hair is a different consistency than scalp hair it works well in cases like this where there is no more scalp hair to donate and when “filler” hair is needed for increased cosmetic density.

The patient is looking forward to another procedure to add more density in the scalp from the beard hair.

A patient with a relatively thick beard can have up to 2000 grafts to donate from the area below the jaw line.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

FUE versus Strip Harvest (FUT) Hair transplant Procedures

Greetings,

In the most recent issue of the International Society Of Hair Restoration Surgery journal there is an extensive very interesting debate between those who advocate FUT over FUE and those who advocate FUE over FUT.

Many of the salient points discussed I have previously written about here in my blog. I will briefly review a few of the most important points here.

FUE Advantages- less invasive, diffuse dot scarring versus strip scarring with FUT which in most but not all cases allows the patient with FUE to cut the hair down to a #1 or #2 without showing any evidence of scarring, less discomfort post procedure

FUT Advantages- no need to shave the head to harvest the donor hair, ability to harvest more hair in a single day, more donor hair available to harvest throughout the patient’s life (start with FUT and convert to FUE after FUT is no longer possible thus maximizing the donor zone overall), less expensive than FUE

There are many subtleties to the advantages and disadvantages of both of these procedures.

What is most important is that your hair transplant surgeon is proficient in both procedures and offers both procedures to patients.

I prefer to educate my patients as to the benefits and drawbacks of both FUT and FUE and let them choose the procedure that suits them best. I enjoy performing both FUT and FUE and let patient’s know that if everything goes as planned they should have a great result no matter which method they choose.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

Beard / Mustache FUE Hair Transplant Result

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who wanted empty patches in his beard and mustache filled in. I used a 0.8mm FUE punch to extract hair follicles from the neck and transplanted these follicles into the beard and mustache. The results are shown after 6 months and the patient is thrilled.

All the best,

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.

Beard Hair FUE Extraction Transplanted to Scalp

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who received old hair transplants with larger grafts from another physician many years ago. He came to me requesting greater density and more irregularity in the hairline to create more naturalness. He was not a candidate for another strip procedure and he had very limited donor reserves on his scalp.

I extracted approximately 600 grafts from the sides of his scalp via FUE and just over 600 grafts from his neck via FUE as well. I used a 0.8mm punch tip for my extractions so that the extraction sites would not be visible. The neck grafts were placed in the frontal and mid scalp for greater density and the scalp grafts were placed in the hairline to create a more natural look overall.

The results are shown after 12 months.

Beard hair FUE is an excellent option for patients who do not have any scalp hair available and this case demonstrates that very well.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

FUE Into Previous Hair Transplant Strip Scars

Greetings,

Here is a patient of mine who had 2 strip scars from another physician. This in itself is wrong as whenever possible I always include the old strip scar in the new strip in order to only leave the patient with a single strip scar even after multiple procedures. The patient wished to conceal these strip scars so that he could cut his hair much shorter. The after photo is 1 year after I placed approximately 500 FUE grafts into the strip scars. Though they are not completely invisible they are much improved and the after photo is at a #0 hair cut so that at a #1 or #2 you should not be able to see the scars. We will place a few more FUE grafts in the future to conceal even more, but the patient is already thrilled with his results.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.

Temporal Peaks FUE Hair Transplant

Greetings,

The temporal peaks in both males and females are an important characteristic in hairline design and create and youthful aesthetic appearance. It is always important to keep in mind the overall donor supply in making the decision to restore the temporal peaks. One must also understand  that patients with curly hair will have a more noticeable difference to the character of the typically finer and straight temporal hair. Also, it is important the primarily single hair follicles are utilized.

This patient has abundant donor supply and wished to have his temporal peaks restored. He received approximately 150 grafts per temporal peak via FUE. Finer hairs from the inferior aspect of his occipital region were used to recreate the naturally finer temporal hair. He should see some additional density over the next 6 months, but he is already thrilled with his results.

All the best,
