No worries about the questions, that's why I made this thread
I do NOT have retrograde alopecia. I know in the last picture I sent it looks like that but that's just my donor area still healing from the transplant.
I think what we are trying to address here Dr. Harris is that this result doesn't seem to really show any difference between pre and post op.
Do you have images of where the grafts were planted? This will help us all understand what the plan of action was.
Was it the patients decision to not strengthen the hairline more?
Do you have images of the donor area as well?
Top view of the patients scalp?
What size punch was used on the ARTAS?
Albeit I understand that hairs that are prone to recession conform to a shorter anagen period, but I have to agree with other comments here that I have seen stronger restoration cases for 2300 grafts. As I mentioned earlier, if you have graft placement pictures this might help with the forum understanding.
All in all, if the paitent is happy that's all that ultimately matters, I would have personally expected more of a result and not been too pleased.
He actually looks better with his hair short before the procedure.
Looks like he grew out his hair and didn't have a transplant.
The only way this could be considered a success is if this was a majority crown transplant.
He’s kinda done for .. only has around 2500 grafts left .. he’s stuck now .. no money or refund or do over can recover the grafts he lost .. n he’s going to need everyone of them hairs .. poor kid .. prime of his life n he has to deal with this ..
Patient paid around $16000? For an average result at best .. bad hairline design , not dense packed .. he grew some hair .. good for him .. with that amount of money he could of had twice the amount of coverage n density using that amount of grafts for the area covered .. if this is ur standard then for a good result .. then that says it all .. n nice response about getting a life .. not everyone is as rich as u doctor , to have enough time hustlin hair from uninformed balding men ..
