  1. This patient stopped in to the clinic this week and we took some updated photos. He'll be 2 years post-op in less than 2 months.
  2. Thank you for the comments guys! Thx also for letting me know about the error Cosmo! Fixed. I will come back later to address a few of the other questions/comments here.
  3. After a couple of trips to the clinic to see Dr. Hasson, this Vancouver area patient decided to proceed a few years after his initial visit. Bothered by the loss in front, the plan was to rebuild the hairline and frontal zone working back into the mid-scalp as far back as necessary. FUE was the preferred method of choice as he wanted the option the cut the hair very short on the sides and back. Overall donor hair was above average with average texture. The 2 day FUE procedure totaled 4903 grafts. Day one yielded 2643 grafts of which 300 were single hair grafts, 1518 were double hair grafts and
  4. Thx for the comments guys! Coady, Thank you for the comment and question. There are a few factors involved to determine what may be possible when formulating a realistic game plan. In this case or any case for that matter, there can be a big difference between the potential accomplishments from clinic A and clinic B. To achieve this result in one session, there are certain factors that need to be in place: #1 and perhaps the most important, a highly skilled surgeon with a talented and experienced staff with the right technology at their disposal. #2 and perhaps as importan
  5. Thx for the additional comments guys! Curisous25, Yes, he is quite pleased as you can imagine and I will post a video soon in which he shares some of his thoughts on his experience. Dr. Hasson rated his density at slightly above average. On a scale of 1 to 5, he was somewhere between a 3 and 4. Overall donor hair was about average, maybe slightly above and rated a 3. This takes into consideration a comprehensive overview of the quality and quantity of the donor area. These numbers may not always translate from patient to patient as far as how many total grafts may be available
  6. Cristero, There can be several factors involved when determining safe zones, final hair loss pattern etc. If a patient is going to end up a stage 7, miniaturization and thinning of the non safe zone will usually show signs visible to the doctor by the age of 29. In nearly all cases, the more aggressive the final hair loss pattern, the earlier it will show its signs. The doctor will take in all the factors such as family history, use of medication but examination of the areas in question will usually be the most important part of the diagnosis. And like anything else, experience and knowle
  7. Thx for the comments guys! deitel130, He was on Proscar at the time of his procedure and continues its use. We estimate about 3,000 grafts left in reserve.
  8. This Vancouver area patient in his mid-30’s was increasingly having trouble styling his hair to conceal the thinning areas. He initially filled out the online consultation form from our website. We estimated something in the 4,000 to 5,000 graft range via FUE to be possible and would achieve a significant cosmetic improvement. Due to his proximity to the clinic, we also invited him in for an in house evaluation. Considering all factors associated with his donor hair and the areas to restore, Dr. Hasson determined something closer to 6,000 may be possible and necessary considering his above ave
  9. Thank you JohnAC71. Thank you aaron1234, FUT was considered but the patient in the end preferred FUE and liked the idea of not having a scar.
  10. Hi Curious25, Thank you for the question. I would not say the extractions are outside of the traditional safe zone. Each "safe" zone varies from patient to patient. For instance, a stage 6 will have potential or realized loss farther down below the crown whorl and therefore less area to harvest from compared to a stage 5A. The lower the number on the Norwood scale, the larger the safe zone will be compared to say a stage 7. Unfortunately, conversely the higher the number on the scale, the smaller the safe zone. Maybe a more accurate statement might be: Donor capacities via FUE for Norwood
  11. When this Vancouver area patient came to us about his hair loss, it bothered him to a considerable degree. However, at the time of his procedure, he was not in a position to commit too many resources to his hair. While Dr. Hasson believed the best possible result would require something in the 4000 to 5,000 graft range, this patient asked what would be the minimum amount of grafts that could still achieve a substantial cosmetic impact with the idea he could have more later. It was determined that if Dr. Hasson could rebuild a nice hairline and add adequate density to the frontal zone, there wa
  12. Thanks for the nice comments guys! Mycroft, I would say a half inch is about right but it depends on your definition. There was some fine hair at the location of the reconstructed hairline so you could say the hairline was kept at its same location and just strengthened. But if you consider the hairline before the procedure to really be where the stronger hair starts, it would be considered lowered. Up for debate I guess 😊 Transplantdphil, Dr. Wong estimates around 100 single hair grafts per side. Maybe give or take 20-25 grafts per side Thx ciaus 😊
  13. This Vancouver based patient in his late 20’s approached Hasson and Wong in hopes of restoring density to his hairline. He first began to lose his hair in his mid-20’s characterized by thinning of the temples along with some hairline recession. Upon review of this patient’s case, Dr. Wong determined he would be a good candidate for the procedure and reconstruction of the temple points would also enhance the cosmetic impact of the result. During the course of the one-day FUE procedure, Dr. Wong and his staff successfully transplanted 1300 grafts to restore a slightly lower and much stronger hai
  14. Thanks for the comments ! asterix0, Dr. Hasson will assess quality and quantity of donor reserves, area to cover and a few other factors. He can then reasonably determine if the supply will meet the demand and can therefore advise the patient on what he expects can be accomplished. For FUE he'll take into consideration that he can select more double and 3-4 hair grafts which will provide more coverage than with the same number using FUT. He will also determine if the area is fairly large whether FUT should be considered first to maximize coverage in cases where the patient i
