Kira--could you comment on what appears to be a relatively poor outcome? Will the patient be getting a touch up? Kudos to you for putting this out there.

This patient appears to have great qualty donor hair. Therefore, this result, while certainly a nice improvement is what I would have expected with 2000 grafts and not 3600. I do have great respect for Dr. Arocha's work in general however.

I would have expected a better yield considering its strip and the numbers involved. Still an improvement from where he started.

That's me in the photos. I was worried I might have had unrealistic expectations going into this procedure, but it appears I'm not the only one who thinks I had poor yield. I guess that makes me feel a little better.

I wasn't planning on having any touch-ups any time soon, hence why I opted for such a large procedure. I might not have a choice though - my hair doesn't exactly look natural at this point. I was really hoping to be off Toppik at 10-11 months, but still don't feel comfortable without it. It's very see-through even in moderate lighting. However, I agree about putting these photos out for the forum to see - I'm sure future candidates will appreciate documentation that not all procedures turn out excellent.

I really don't expect much improvement in the next few months or so. It's looked more or less the same from months 6-10. It's a shame because I feel that I made a good choice in my surgeon.

Finally, for those wondering - been on Propecia for 1.5 years now (every day). I really don't understand the poor yield. I followed all of the post-op directions, have been taking medication, eat a healthy diet and excercise almost every day. Just goes to show not all results will turn out as expected, I suppose.

Thank you for viewing and commenting on our post. There are a few things we would like to address. While most of our patients have more robust and early results, remember, that occasionally some patients take a bit longer to grow in. We have had patients who continue to see improvements well beyond one year. So at 10 months there may still be some further improvement to come.

In regards to “poor yield,” I would like to clarify. Poor yield refers to a transplant that does not yield a significant amount of growth within an adequate amount of time. Considering that there was no re-growth in the frontal third in 11/2 years of taking Propecia, and with a significant amount of miniaturization in the area one can surmise that Propecia might not be helping and that the native hair could have continue to miniaturize in the ensuing 10 months post-surgery. So the question is where would he be without the benefits of the transplant. Dr. Arocha takes hair loss very seriously and of course he wants the very best for his patients. The prudent course is to continue to maximize the treatment and give it the tincture of time!
