  4. Bman3082, In most similar cases, the tissue looks good after removal of the grafts and is not an issue. If the previous work has created a lot of scar tissue and disruption, the scarring can be a little more pronounced but I’ve never seen a case where it didn’t look much better than before the offending grafts were removed. I've even seen cases where the previous transplant was so bad that after the grafts were removed the change was so dramatic the patient almost considered leaving it without proceeding to stage 2 of the reconstuction! Upshall, We do perform some unshaven FUT depending on the number of grafts and how much existing hair is in the recipient area. But in the vast majority of cases, a shave of the recipient site to some degree is preferred. jj51702, I don’t have any good pre-op and immediate post-op shot of the donor but I’ve posted a couple of post-op shots below. Thanks CosmoKramer, We will have a video of this patient coming soon. I have also added a couple more pre-op photos that better show the 2 hair grafts just to the left center of the hairline and the large gaps between the grafts.
  5. Vancouver area patient in his early 30’s. Without the proper initial research, he fell victim like many others who might have felt that there may not be a big difference from one clinic to another. Likely influenced more by cost than quality, he chose a clinic in Istanbul for his first hair transplant. As can be the case with many locations, there can be a number of choices, not all created equal. As this site has stated for many years: “Be Careful!” It did not turn out as he had expected and he wanted to correct the previous work and achieve his original goal of a nice hairline with good density. Upon evaluation of the work done in Istanbul, Dr. Hasson noted the hairline and tissue exhibited ridging, cobblestoning, misdirected hair, multi-hair grafts, low density, etc. All of these conditions are unnatural and can draw the wrong type of attention. Today’s modern hair restoration should never present any of these conditions. Excision of some grafts inappropriately placed that blunted the temporal angles would also be required to achieve the most natural result. Shortly after his initial consultation, he came back to the clinic to have the offending 95 misdirected grafts in the temporal angles removed ( see photos with marker highlighting areas to remove). When the temporal angles have been improperly blunted especially with hairs pointing in the wrong direction, removal is often necessary if the most natural looking hairline is to be created. In some cases, we can work around poorly executed previous work but to what degree and with what sacrifices if any is determined case by case. Dr. Hasson and team then later rebuilt a new hairline blending into the frontal zone with 2,000 grafts via FUE. 343 grafts were single hair, 1329 were double hair grafts and 328 were 3-4 hair grafts. These photos were taken 1-year post-op. GRAFTS REMOVED PRIOR TO HAIRLINE RECONSTRUCTION:

  9. Patient in his mid-40’s from Florida. Previous procedure at another clinic back in 2000 of around 700 grafts. Dr. Wong and team rebuild a new hairline and frontal zone working back into the necessary areas of need including the crown. Of the 4490 grafts used, 1506 were single hair grafts, 2347 were doubles and 637 were 3-4 hair grafts. With his hair dyed, these photos were taken 1-year post-op at the time of his second procedure. In the second session, not reflected in these photos, Dr. Wong rebuilt the temples and points and increased density throughout. An additional 3532 grafts were employed and we hope to have updated photos showing the final result sometime later this year.
  10. Flyinghotnow, If you consider his previous hairline to be where the stronger hair starts and not the weak hairline that remained, I would say as much as 3 centimeters lower in some areas give or take. The last photo (hairline left side) before the immediate post-op shot best illustrates the old hairline. No temple point work, they were good.
  11. Spanker, hairlossPA, Triple7, HTO416, BicTNYC, thanks for all the nice comments! Triple7, Dr. Hasson estimates around 3,000 grafts left in the bank via FUE.
  12. Vancouver area patient in his late 40’s had finer hair with diffused thinning heading for a stage 6. Hoping for as many grafts as possible and something north of 4,000, his above average density enabled Dr. Hasson and team to harvest 6514 grafts via FUT to rebuild a new hairline and frontal zone, restore the mid-scalp and work back into the crown. 1969 were single hair grafts, 4162 were doubles and 383 were 3-4 hair grafts. These photos were taken 3 years post-op.
  13. Hasson and Wong patient advisor James will again be in Toronto in the new year on Jan 19 - 20. Then it is off to Scottsdale AZ for his first visit there to see prospective patients.
