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.

Hair Transplants- Get It Right The First Time

Greetings,

Here is another interview I did with Spencer Kobren of “The Bald Truth” discussing the things to look out for in your hair transplant surgeon and in the planning of your hair transplant procedure.

It is imperative to “get it right” the first time so that you don’t end up with an unnatural look or a problem in the donor or recipient region.

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 Patient- Video Testimonial

Greetings,

Here is a 30 year patient of mine who received 1553 grafts via FUE. The patient is in the military which is why he opted for FUE as he did not want a strip scar to show through his short haircut.

There is a video below of the patient describing his experience undergoing the FUE hair transplant procedure.

I hope you enjoy watching.

All the best,

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.
