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,

Marc Dauer, MD

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 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.

 

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.

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.

Bad Strip Scars versus Trichophytic Closure Strip Scar

Greetings,

I recently saw a patient in consultation who had received 3 previous hair transplants from another physician and wanted to be evaluated for an additional procedure from me.

On examination of his donor area I was surprised to  find 3 separate strip scars. One for each procedure, stacked on top of each other. The effect was significant scarring in the donor area and an inability to harvest another strip scar secondary to the extensive scarring from the previous procedures.

For reference I have also attached a photo of one of my patient’s who had 2 strip procedures, but only one scar. This is because whenever I go back for additional procedures on a patient, I always attempt to harvest the new strip to include the old strip scar. In essence instead of creating train track multiple stacked scars, I keep the scar as a singular scar, thus minimizing the overall scarring to the donor region. In addition, I also performed a trichophytic closure in my patient, which allows the hair to grow through the scar, thus further concealing the scar.

It is imperative to treat the donor region with as much care as the recipient region. Donor hair is finite, and proper care and attention must be given to ensure that we can minimize donor scarring and maximize donor harvesting over the patient’s lifetime.

All the best,

Marc Dauer, M.D.
