  1. Looking good bossman! For the record Bis, this is not considered a blunting of the temporal angles. Something less than a 90 degree angle would be.
  2. Thanks Spanker! I would say any hairline placement and design in our clinic has special considerations. Bone structure and facial features play a role in addition to donor reserves and final hair loss pattern among other considerations. In this particular case if I can take you into the mind of Dr. Hasson and convey a few things he might have been thinking: The existing forelock is lower than in the typical mature male hairline but it is strong and it does not appear to be miniaturized to any material degree and looks like it will remain in the foreseeable future. His donor reserves are good and I don’t see an aggressive final hair loss pattern. If I try and restore a higher hairline, it will not blend as well with the existing level and therefore the cosmetic benefit and aesthetics will be greater with a lower hairline. I don’t see any particular long term risk with this hairline given donor reserves and projected final hair loss pattern. Even if he does progress farther than anticipated, his donor reserves will be sufficient to restore the necessary areas to support this hairline in the future. All things considered, this hairline will suit him best without putting him at future risk.
  3. Hi hairlossPA, I plan to be in New York City sometime in September. I will let you know when I select the dates. You can also keep an eye on our website for updates. Thanks!

  5. Thanks for all the nice comments guys! I agree😊 Recedinggenes, In a 2 year span, patients from 72 countries traveled to our clinic for a procedure and didn't let distance get in the way of achieving their desired result, why would you?😃 HLPToronto, Density numbers can be deceiving so we don't place too much emphasis on them. A patient with very fine hair can be packed at 80 grafts per square centimeter for instance and not look as thick as someone with coarse hair packed at 50. We can achieve the highest densities possible if required to create the best cosmetic impact. In this case due to his coarse hair, a lofty number was not necessary and if compared in general to one of our other high density results it might seem low. However, with coarse hair, especially darker against light skin, a certain amount of density must be employed for it to look natural. So relativity speaking it has to be high. Regardless of the number, the most natural hairlines do have a high density relative to all the factors and that is why our graft counts for a given area are usually higher than most.
  6. This patient in his mid-20’s from the UK had researched enough to know he needed to make a trip across the pond to have Hasson and Wong address his receding hairline and thinning frontal zone. He had good donor hair on the finer side with above-average scalp laxity and decided on FUT as his extraction method of choice. Dr. Hasson and his team successfully harvested 3898 grafts during a single session. These grafts were used to rebuild a new lower hairline and address the necessary areas of the frontal zone. 1040 of these grafts were singles, 2737 were doubles and 121 were 3-4-hair grafts. These photographs were taken approximately 3 years post-op.
  7. Hi Markee, James, one of our advisers is planning a trip to Miami in September. Get in touch with me and I'll see to it you'll have a spot when he goes.
  8. This patient in his mid-20’s came up from Seattle looking to restore his receding hairline and thinning frontal zone. He started noticing his hairline was getting weak at a relatively young age (18-19). His hair loss progressed fairly quickly and he felt it was time to address it. He had good donor hair with texture on the coarse side. While a candidate for either method, FUE was the decided choice. Dr. Hasson and his team successfully harvested 2508 grafts during a one day FUE procedure to rebuild his hairline and address the necessary areas of the frontal zone. 301 of these grafts were singles, 1522 were doubles and 685 were 3-4-hair grafts. These photos were taken approximately 13 months post-op.
  9. I will be in San Francisco to see prospective patients July 23-25. To meet me and see if you are a good candidate for a hair restoration procedure at our clinic, reserve your spot here: https://hassonandwong.com/consultations-in-your-city/ From the USA tab select the appropriate city.

  10. As promised, here is the latest Dr. Hasson 4,000+ graft FUE result:
  11. This Vancouver-area patient in his early 30’s was bothered by his lack of a hairline and eroded frontal zone. He started losing his hair around the age of 25, and his loss progressed to the point where he wanted to do something about it. He had good donor density with average texture hair. His scalp was on the tighter side which added to his suitability as a candidate for FUE. Dr. Hasson and team harvested 4210 grafts over the course of 2 days. Most of these grafts were transplanted into the hairline and frontal zone with some blending into the mid-scalp. 597 were single hair grafts, 2692 were doubles and 921 were 3-4-hair grafts. These photographs were taken approximately 1-year post-op.
  12. Hasson and Wong patient advisor James will travel from Toronto to see prospective patients for the first time in Taiwan on July 8-10.

  14. Greg_Swanson, We always take into account someone’s potential future loss. I was recently talking to a patient who had a procedure with another doctor and I was dismayed at the fact this patient indicted his previous surgeon did not talk to him about his projected future hair loss or possible prevention. With few exceptions and I could agree with no exceptions, every patient should have this conversation with his surgeon regardless of how far they are projected to slide down the Norwood scale. For a NW7 or potential NW7, a conservative hairline and approach is usually always the best option. The degree of dense packing necessary or required will vary from patient to patient. While a certain density is required in the frontal zone for the most natural result, it is not likely to be as high in a NW7 with avenge donor hair than in a NW3 with exceptional donor hair as an example. In most cases, the average surgeon can only achieve a certain density so in this instance there may not be much of a difference. In our clinic, the chances would be greater that there would be a discrepancy in density from the NW7 to the NW3.
  15. Hi Bonkling, If this question is for me, considering I am a representative of Hasson and Wong, I will answer from my perspective. If you’re asking if there is a difference between Dr. Hasson and Dr. Wong, the simple answer is yes. However, there is not much difference in terms of skill level and how they would be ranked and perceived within the industry. Both are considered among the best in the world and as you have likely seen here, are capable of producing results equal to or greater than any other highly respected surgeon. The patient can choose which doctor they’d like if their research has led them to one over the other. In most cases, a patient is suited for either. If I feel for whatever reason one doctor may be a better fit than another, I will tell the patient so. As an example, Dr. Wong typically does more female patients than Dr. Hasson so a female may be assigned to Dr. Wong. CosmoKrammer, Both Dr. Hasson and Dr. Wong are proficient in both FUT and FUE. We have felt for a few years now that either doctor can produce our industry-leading results with either method. Harry_potter1, Each doctor has his own highly skilled team. In some cases when required, a member from one team will assist the other team but not often. It is interesting how things happen on the forums. One member may express an opinion and maybe it gains traction. I’ve heard these things for years about Dr. Wong is better with crowns, and Dr. Hasson is better with this or that, etc. I find it amusing as I know both are equally as talented in cases where one is considered better than the other. Maybe check back to our site. We’ve put more FUE results up and placed some more prominently in the first few pages. Presently 11 of 12 results are FUE on the front page of our Gallery, 4 of which are 3,000 grafts or more. We will also be adding another Dr. Hasson 4,000 + FUE result to the gallery and I’ll also post here very soon. 8 of the 11 are Dr. Hasson’s FUE results. Bonkling, We typically estimate or recommend a higher number of grafts than most clinics. We will usually put more in a given area and have the staff to perform large mega sessions. As I have stated before, you have to have a certain density for it to look natural and you need large numbers for large areas of thinning or balding scalp. Some clinics don’t have the technology or staff to accomplish the numbers in one session. We sometimes kid that no one comes back and says: “Doc, you gave me too much hair” If it was to happen, we would be leading the way in those cases. 😄 jj51702, Dr. Wong’s contributions have been instrumental in our summit to the top of the FUE field and he is a little more involved with regards to conferences, organizations, and colleagues. While Dr. Hasson may not be as involved to this extent, his contributions at the clinic level are not to be dismissed. His results will suggest that his lack of involvement does not diminish the quality of his work. In the end, if you are not sure who might be the best fit, let the team at Hasson and Wong help you decide. If we feel there is a reason why you should have one over the other, we’ll let you know. But if it comes down to either Dr. Hasson or Dr. Wong, you’ve already made the right decision😄
