  1. Dr Bisanga and Dr Mwamba are also very skilled at this.
  2. Aside from what was mentioned regarding Dr Vorhies, Dr Vories, has good FUE pricing (cheaper then most) and does surgical extractions/harvesting himself.
  3. Patient went a long way with minimal grafts. Especially, considering this is a repair on previously impacted scalp tissue. Looks like great yield based on coverage. Ethical repair right here. Good job Doc!
  4. -Misangled grafts can cause fall out months later when they grow and transect each other -Depth of graft insertion can be a part if it -It can happen if a graft is inserted at different angles where one grows sooner and anotger grows later tgen they collide with each other as they mature -Other reasons for graft fall out could be if weaker grafts that were tend to shed were placed in the area in general -other reason could be skin issues or folliculitus realated sheds usually last 3-4 months but return hope your growth is better soon

    Oh and remember, beard, body, nape hair react adversely with finasteride. Finasteride is safe for scalp hair and grafts, but it can shed other body hairs that gave been grafted into recipient zones.

    Sun Exposure post-op

    Doctors ive spoken to have mentioned more direct constant rays. It is quite natural to get some sun, whether you are sitting in your office and some light shines through windows or driving and having some sunlight on and off. But standing on a bright sunny day with direct sunlight for more than 10 minutes and no shade on a sidewalk will probably not be in your best interest. Some docs suggest wearing caps when grafts are safely anchored per their own guidlines. There are two sides to this, if your body is without any sun and you are active only in the evening hours-like dracula- you are risking lower levels of vitamin d, which, can be detrimental to your hair as well.

    Sun Exposure post-op

    You should avoid direct long term sun on recipient zone for a couple of months. Multiple docs ive spoken to suggest it can be detrimental and elevate risk to the grafts.
  8. Sm90, fut is usually high yielding in most hands and docs can see appropriate groupings to create natural density if they dissect the strip well with appropriate slithering. If you still have lack of density gaps in your hairline, before 12-13 month mark, you may need a second well researched decision to undergo a second procedure. Weaker hairs should never be used towards areas where density is needed. Also, hairs should not be going in different directions or horizontal like a tree. Thats not how a recipient graft should look like. Hair should be placed at a very articulate and distinguishable lateral slit angle to increase the look of density. Some docs mention they will do lateral slit but end up doing some horizontal bullcrap or create angles that look like ant legs. I think its just to get a patient in the chair they’ll say anything. Very few docs can do true lateral slit and you can find them if you research. Best of luck and i know how brutal this can be. Sometimes it is better to get an honest opinion then to be led on and have your emotions played with and time wasted. People should start saying it like it is to help a person and not to confuse them. You should question tge doc and see what he/she has to say and offer you. Again best of luck.
  9. Gatsu is definitely enjoying this is by far an amazing well calculated journey. Well researched, well planned, well executed. This one is definitely top tier work.
  10. Dr Baubac also gets decent hairlines. Dr Feller had some quite natural hairlines. Dr Keser puts out decent hairlines Dr Gabel has had some good work here Dr Freitas is great and he is booked a long time there are more but it doesnt hurt to get a consult with these docs as well. best of luck

    Probably a highly ethical doc like Dr Cooley, Dr Lindsey, Dr Wong, Dr Col, Dr Wesley to start off with. If you are repairing hairline esp, avoid nape hair or body or bear hairs. Nape hair should be outbof the question. Beard hairs for scars, possibly. But it is extremely low yield. Scalp hair is best for donor means. Best of luck with everything and get multiple dagone consults. This way you can get a graft average vs high and low estimates.
  12. Wow, This is the first time i am hearing of this. Mods, do you guys think this can reduce recipient scar tissue since it pulls the skin to get blood flowing? Do you think this may increase scalp laxity? my one fear with this is, ive seen folks wear turbans for years and some get traction alopecia from pulling and tugging and tightness of turban. I just hope this does not have a similar effect long term. Thanks for informing us about it though.

    Sad Case

    This is beyond terrible. This benchod doc couldn’t assess patient’s health properly or failed to see what was going on. Sad as this had to happen this way for this man. He literally died in severe pain. This can happen anywhere and i think this was poor screening and follow up with this patient. I hope his family gets justice. I hope to god that doc never gets membership access on any forum if he does operate single handedly or if he does it in a partnership setting. Death like this should definitely be a disqualifier for the doc and any associates. Completely terrible way to leave this earth.
  14. Some folks think it is ok to do that but in the second time around a surgeon may get careless . They may use chunkier grafts and bigger punches. They may cause more scarring within the zones already grafted and leaving you with ridging or cobblestoning. Then possibly send you elswhere after they realize they did a good job destroying vascularization to your scalp and you are having to go back and forth and hoping to get out of a nightmare situation. I really hope that this really comes to an end soon. It is brutal and folks shouldn'thave to go through repairs. Repairs can be very risky if done wrong and you are already utilizing pricelesss grafts. Fml
  15. I think Dr Keser can be added to that list. Dr Vories also does the work himself. Dr Bhatti I believe does as well.
