Ethnicity should be considered, but only in terms of design. Hairline designs and temple points differ for various ethnicities. For example, on average caucasian men have triangular temple points, while men of african descent have square hairlines and square temple points.
So you need to make sure the clinic understands the natural hairline and temple point design based on your ethnic background. That said, eugenix do great work and I’m sure they understand how to design a caucasian hairline, but you may require more grafts to achieve density than say a south asian guy with thick bushy hair.
This is something that’s been regurgitated for quite some time. In fact, I’ve heard arguments on both sides. As patients, we don’t really know all of the surgical intricacies. One surgeon may favor a smaller punch and another a larger punch. One may favor a manual and another a motorized. Every surgery has it’s particular set of tools, just like anything. Dr. Konoir made a great analogy of what’s better a flathead screwdriver or a phillips head screwdriver? Depends on the job.
My first surgery was 1mm punches and second was .9mm no adjacent damage. Btw you think your crown looks ridiculous look at how mine was, btw thats .9mm with Dr. Diep as well.
Why do you say that? I don't believe the Dr. used a punch size that is different than what he ordinarily uses. Keep in mind my donor area looked really bad on day 1 likely due to the excessive bleeding. Is there any evidence to suggest that Diep's punch size results in transection of adjacent units?
Melvin, great, great video.
Your input, and your effort to this site has honestly made my investigation so much easier. Same goes to all contributors.
Also, your result is amazing - looks to have been a real home run. Congrats
