  1. The ABHRS does not accept any surgeon. First, they have to present 250 cases completed (or a completed fellowship), and before/afters of patients. Then they have to pass both and oral and written exam that has been psychometrically tested. It is the only examination of its type dedicated just to hair restoration surgery.
  2. This patient came into today for his one year follow up after receiving 3000 FUE grafts, 2000 grafts in his vertex, and 1000 grafts in his bilateral apex areas. All grafts harvested and placed by the physician, and full facial images were used with the patient's permission. He is stable on finasteride.
  3. This patient came in yesterday for his one year follow up after receiving 3000 FUE grafts in a one day procedure. 1100 grafts were placed in the vertex, and 1900 grafts were placed in his frontal forelock/hairline. All grafts were harvested and placed by the physician. Full facial images are used with the patient's permission.
  4. This patient came in today for his 6 month follow up after receiving 2000 FUE grafts to his frontal forelock and hairline, with the majority of grafts focused on his apex (corner) areas. All grafts harvested and placed by the physician.
  5. This patient came in this week for his 6 month follow up after receiving 2500 FUE grafts into his frontal forelock/hairline. He is stable on finasteride.

    Michael Vories, MD FUE Vertex 2000 Grafts

    We stopped using the NeoGraft machine several years ago due to inconsistent growth related to suction. We found the suction can cause a flash dessication of the grafts, which leads to poor graft survival. I have been using a motorized sharp punch system with manual extraction to eliminate the possibility of dessication, and in doing so have increased graft survival to over 95%. Thanks!
  11. Crown cases can be notoriously difficult. Getting the exit angles and an adequate hair mass is needed. This patient came in for his one year follow up after receiving 2000 FUE grafts into his vertex. Many times with vertex cases there can be a two to three month delay in hair growth compared to hairline cases. When this patient came in for his six month follow up, there was about 40-50% growth, while with most hairline/frontal forelock cases most patients are almost completely grown in at six months. According to the patient, it wasn't until about the nine month post-op mark that he began seeing the final result. All grafts harvested and placed by Dr. Vories.
  12. This patient came in last week for his 1 year follow up after receiving 3000 FUE grafts in his frontal forelock, hairline, and midscalp in a one day session. A 0.80 mm sharp punch was used for extraction, and Hans Lion Implanters were used for graft placement. Full facial images were used with patient's consent, and all grafts were harvested and placed by Dr. Vories.
  13. This African-American patient came in for his 6 month follow up yesterday, after receiving 1500 FUE grafts into his hairline and bilateral apex areas. A test case was performed to ensure that the tissue could be extracted with minimal transection, and the test case was successful. In our practice, we see about 20% of patients of African descent have a distinct curl to the tissue that prevents successful harvesting with a straight punch. Grafts were placed with Hans Lion Implanters, and all tissue was harvested and placed by Dr. Vories.
  14. This patient came in for his 12 month follow up today after receiving 2000 FUE grafts into his frontal forelock and hairline. When transplanting patients with gray hair, we use hair dye prior to extraction to prevent color bias, so we obtain similar proportions of gray and pigmented hair. Grafts were extracted using a 0.80 mm surrounded punch, and grafts were placed using Hans Lion Implanters. All grafts were harvested and placed by Dr. Vories, and full facial images were used with the patient's consent.
  15. This 25 year old patient came in for his 6 month follow up after receiving 2000 FUE grafts into his hairline and bilateral apex areas. Because of his age we suggested the use of finasteride and minoxidil, which he continues to take. A 0.75 mm surrounded sharp punch was used for extraction, and grafts were placed with Hans Lion Implanters. Full facial images are used with patient's consent. All grafts were harvested and placed by Dr. Vories.
