  1. This patient came to Dr. Arocha to re-establish a hairline and increase density. As you can see in the before images, he had fairly severe thinning throughout the top of his head. Dr. Arocha and his team performed a 2800 FUT procedure. The after results were taken one year post-procedure.
  2. As always, we appreciate feedback and input from patients and forum members. Dr. Arocha's long history of excellence is based on two factors: 1) Refined hairline work that typically completely reframes the face and knocks several years off one's appearance. 2) Consistency with lots of documentation. This second factor, I admit, is lacking in consistency with regards to lighting. We don't have an empty white wall to use, and the aesthetic of our clinic overall is darker in general than a typical clinic. If you've ever stepped foot through our doors, you will know that Arocha Hair Restoration is not your typical clinic. This has to do with the artistic appearance that Dr. Arocha designed in the overall construction of the building. Part of this issue also has to do with timing, in that we don't always have time to pull up the before photos to sync with our after photos and sometimes the exact comparison will suffer. I still like to show these images because I believe, while not exact, they provide a good sense of the before and after of the patient. We will endeavor, as always, to improve upon this in the future, as we do take constructive criticism seriously.
  3. This patient came to Dr. Arocha last year with thinning throughout his hairline and frontal third. Dr. Arocha worked throughout in a 3000 FUT procedure. The after images were taken 1 year and 1 month (almost to the day) of his procedure.
  4. Thanks, LaserCap! Hope all is well.
  5. This patient came to Dr. Arocha to enhance his hairline. Dr. Arocha and his team performed a 2000 manual FUE. The after results were taken 8 months after his procedure. We look forward to seeing his result at one year.
  6. This patient came to Dr. Arocha to restore his hairline. Dr. Arocha and his team performed a 2500+ FUT procedure. The after results were taken 2 years and 7 months after his procedure.
  7. Hi Steeeeve, Thanks for weighing in! Dr. Arocha liked your idea about providing some post-op images of this particular patient. Here is one that shows where Dr. Arocha worked - which was the hairline and frontal area to the mid-scalp. Let me know if you have any questions!
  8. Hi VicTNYC, Unfortunately, we cannot always control how our patients prefer to keep their hair styled prior to a procedure. In this case, he felt better about keeping his hair short, like many other who have hair loss choose to do. It's a personal preference on their end. Thanks for taking the time to look at the result!

  9. Hi all, I want to provide an update for this patient. He recently came in for a follow-up. These new images were taken 1 year, 3 months after his procedure.
  10. Hi all, Dr. Arocha wants me to address these questions and comments. While it is true that LaserCap worked for Dr. Arocha in the past, he has not worked for us going on a year. All thoughts, opinions and comments are his own, and he is not compensated. LaserCap does have a wide array of industry experience that is worth listening to. That said, LaserCap did ask some good questions in his initial comment, which Dr. Arocha addresses in a statement below: Dr. Arocha's response: Lasercap , thank you for your observations and for taking the time to comment. During my fellowship year training in hair restoration surgery, I had two main mentors. One espoused that same principle that you mentioned that the scalp could only support certain recipient site density before the graft survival was compromised. The other mentor was much more aggressive in the densities that he created. I learned from both, but developed my own techniques. While it is true that greater densities pose some risk, this can be mitigated by limiting the depth of the incisions in the site creation to prevent damage to the neurovascular bed. Hence, the graft and tissue perfusion is not compromised to any significant degree. There are many hair surgeons on this forum that can achieve nice transplanted follicular densities.
  11. This patient came to Dr. Arocha and team to restore his hairline. He underwent a 2500 FUE procedure, and Dr. Arocha performed a 500 enhancement for a total of 3000 FUE. The after images were taken 4 months after his 500 graft enhancement. Please note: I'm editing this post for clarity. I mistakenly put that the patient underwent a 2500 procedure, but Dr. Arocha let me know that these photos were actually taken after his additional 500 graft enhancement - for a grand total of 3000 FUE.
  12. Hair Transplant Sessions: 1 Grafts Implanted: 3000 Baldness Class: 3 Surgical Procedure: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) 42 Year Old Male came to Arocha Hair Restoration to restore his hair line and increase the density in the frontal area. The patient wanted to fight the diffuse thinning and receding hair line and frontal area. He desired to avoid the risk of a linear scar in case he wanted to wear a short hair style in the future. His results are very early at only 5 months post FUE hair transplant surgery. Before: After: Before: After: Before: After:
  13. This patient underwent a 3000 FUT procedure with Dr. Arocha and team. As you can see in the before pictures, he had severe thinning throughout. The after images, which were taken one year and two months after his procedure, show significant improvement.

  14. Definitely agree! We are always looking to better our processes and this is helpful feedback! Thank you.
