  4. Hi Kiwi Guy, Yes, attaching a photo of his donor post-procedure. Thank you!
  5. Hey guys, I felt compelled to share my results. This is 5 months of Finasteride (1mg a day without missing a day) I have had no side effects and have used no other therapy, just Finasteride. At Arocha Hair Restoration we strive to help all those with hair loss find a solution whether it be surgery or a medical regiment. This is Blake, I am one of Dr. Arocha's patient educators, at 27, bummed about my hair thinning. It has been gradually getting thinner over the past 3 years. Most people did not notice, but I noticed and it bothered me. I will add more therapies and keep you posted but I wanted to share my results which I and Dr. Arocha think are pretty good. Dr. Arocha recommended Finasteride before having a procedure to hopefully avoid a procedure. Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: Before: After: Before: After:

  7. As always, we appreciate everyone's comments and opinions. This case represents one that is fairly common for Dr. Arocha and our clinic to deal with, which specifically involves patients that require a more subtle improvement that is not so visible as what many of you are used to. When patients have a degree of thinning that forces them to use hairstyles they normally would not want to use, or they just feel and see that the density is not what it used to be, it can be quite a source of anxiety. If you look at this image previous posted more closely, you can see the thinning behind the frontal hairline: Dr. Arocha and his team placed approximately 2000 grafts into the frontal hairline, and several centimeters into his frontal zone, to add density. Here are the immediate post photos. The hairline from this angle also shows placement well into the frontal zone. The remaining 1000 grafts, give or take, were placed into the crown region for additional density as well. I hope this clarifies the issue and better explains the approach.

  9. Greetings Hair Transplant Network community, I would like to thank all of you for taking the time to support our patient. Hair restoration surgery has always been a team sport. The amount of work involved is too great for one person to do it all. There is an ideal amount of time that tissue should be out of body, not to mention that it is best for the patient to have the work completed as efficiently as possible. There are four full time hair techs in my office. Their main task is to trim tissue under microscopes, and to place the grafts. Not one of them has ever “punched” donor tissue in an fue procedure. Harvesting donor tissue in an fue surgery is performed only by a licensed certified practitioner. I personally stand 100% behind the work performed at Arocha Hair Restoration. Due to HIPPA stipulations, I cannot discuss any patient’s medical information, without their permission nor can I confirm or deny that a patient is mine without said permission. I will say however that while obtaining this permission is usually not difficult, there are very rare instances when such permission is requested but is subsequently denied. One can only speculate as to why. Therefore, I can only speak to how our procedures are carried out, generally speaking. My approach is to create a natural hairline that maximizes the framing of the face, while following short and long-term guidelines based on the individuals condition, donor/demand ratio, and hair characteristics. Of course, the transition zone is build with one hair grafts, ideally with finer caliber in the forefront of the hairline; and larger caliber as we progress toward the define zone. A patient with coarse hair is challenging, as even a one hair will appear bold. This issue is only exacerbated further when the coarse hair is black and on fair skin. However, using only nape of the neck and retro-auricular follicles will usually yield finer caliber hairs. A two hair graft placed in the forefront of the transition zone can be softened by using a tiny punch to remove one of the hairs, or by working in front with the finer one hair grafts available. Touch-ups are sometimes needed; when they are, it is prudent to allow enough time for the transplant to grow out. It commonly takes 12-18 months for not only all of the grafts to emerge but for the fullness, the texture and overall characteristics of the hair transplant to fully mature. Thank you all, and have a good weekend!
