  1. We use both techniques, depending on the patient needs. The WAW-system with trumpet punch we use especially in cases with curly or frizzy hair. As we need no single FU’s (crown area), Dr. Feriduni decided to work with the WAW-system. Please check breakdown FU first and second OP.
  2. FUE performed on a 54-year old Caucasian male with • Isolated Vertex hair loss pattern • Donor density of 76 FU/cm² occipital, 76 FU/cm² parietal, 68 FU/cm² temporal • Hair diameter of ~48-54 microns Treatment plan Follicular Unit Extraction to reconstruct the crown area. Performed procedure FUE (November 17, 2017) Follicular Unit Extraction with 763 FU * 763 tripple hair FU Parallel incisions in custom-sized blades technique (Cutting Edge blades of 0.7-0.80 mm). Extraction performed with a 0.8 mm FUE punch with CIT Manual Punch Handle. No microscopic preparation of the follicular unit grafts.
  3. FUE’s performed on a 49-year old Caucasian male with • NW V-VI, Class N • Donor density of 92 FU/cmÇ occipital, 88 FU/cmÇ parietal, 80 FU/cmÇ temporal • Hair diameter of ~54-60 microns Treatment plan 1. Follicular Unit Extraction to attain an aesthetic reconstruction of the hairline and the midhead section. 2. Follicular Unit Extraction to restore the crown area. Performed procedures 1. FUE (November 21, 2017) with 3531 FU * 841 single hair FU * 200 double hair FU * 2490 triple hair FU Parallel incisions in custom-sized blades technique (Cutting Edge blades of 0.7-0.85 mm). Extraction performed with a 0.8 mm FUE punch with CIT Manual Punch Handle. 2. FUE (September 10, 2018) with 2678 FU * 278 single hair FU * 2400 double hair FU Parallel incisions in custom-sized blades technique (Cutting Edge blades of 0.7-0.85 mm). Extraction performed by WAW-system with a 0.85 mm serrated trumpet punch. No microscopic preparation of the follicular unit grafts. Note: follow-up 2nd FUE will be updated after 1 year
  4. No problem. Attached you can find some more pictures (preop 1st FUE, preop 2nd FUE, 1 year postop 2nd FUE). Unfortunately we do not have a picture preop of short hair, therefor also a picture intra-op of the first FUE. The microscopical view with the DermLite shows the Y-shaped scar in detail. If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Glad to help!
  5. The superior Y-shaped scar had a width of 2-14 mm. The inferior scar had a width of 2-6mm. The goal was to reduce the visibility of the punch grafts in the hairline and midhead region and also to have a short hair cut of 6mm. After the first surgery the scars were invisible at a haircut of 12mm*; after the second surgery we succeeded in our goal of 6mm. * Attached a picture of the patient with a haircut of 12mm as a result after the 1st FUE.
  6.

    That's right. And as we already mentioned, we haven't received any updates from our patient as from the 18th day postop until now.

    First of all, I would like to mention that I feel very sad about the patient’s situation. At my clinic and towards our patients, we always do our utmost from the preoperative planning/consultation onwards until the day of surgery. We also appreciate to stay in touch for any specific questions concerning the aftercare and monthly updates. Here’s a brief summary from the initial contact until the follow-up after his 2nd surgery: - Online consultation (July 2012) – pictures hair situation patient *attached picture Results1-jpg Since I hadn’t met the patient in person, I wasn’t able to perform any measurements concerning his donor density and scalp flexibility. Therefore, the initial treatment plan, after inspecting the pictures of his online request, (pic 5 & 6) was either a FUE 3000 – 3500 FU or FUT with 3500 - 4000 FU. I also advised him to consider the extraction of the previous transplanted FU’s on his right temporal area (pic 2), as in my opinion, the hairline design (ex-domo) was too low. - Preoperative consultation (1st surgery - October 2012, Hasselt, Belgium) Anamnesis: 29-year-old patient who suffers from hair loss since 2004 and underwent a FUT operation in 2008 ( ex-domo). At the current age of 29, the patient believed his hair loss was relatively stable and he didn’t use any medication such as Finasteride or Minoxidil. Family anamnesis: Hair loss father: all zones Hair loss mother: / Hair loss brother: 1, 3 Hair loss grandfather on mother’s side: / Hair loss grandfather on father’s side : 5, 5v, 6 Hair loss uncle on mother’s side: unknown Hair loss uncle on father’s side: unknown - The genetic hair loss is inherited from the male side of his family - According to the patient, approx. 1000 - 1500 FU were transplanted for the reconstruction of his hairline and temporal recessions during his previous surgery in 2008. Diagnosis: Hair loss pattern classification: MPB Type NW III – IV, vertex, Class T Donor area: good skin condition and optimal scalp laxity occipital and parietal area Hair structure: slightly wavy Measured density occipital: 76 FU/cm² of which 25 % – 30 % were singles FU Miniaturization occipital: 10 % Hair density: 158 hairs/cm² Linear scar in the lower occipital and parietal area with a length of approx. 14 cm and a variating width of 3 to 8 mm. Recipient area: multiple incorrectly placed FU’s (incorrect angulation and direction) in his right + left temporal recession Advised treatment plan after personal examination: FUT in order to reconstruct frontal third (zone 2, 3 and the transition towards zone 4) in a medium density Extraction of several incorrectly placed FU from previous surgery out of his right temporal recession - OR-Report October 2012 – 1st surgery (Dr. B. Feriduni) Breakdown: 1684 Singles (!) 1965 Doubles/Triples Total: 3649 FU Aftercare: Postoperative aftercare performed at my clinic between 1 and 14 days postoperative without any complications *attached picture Result2-a.jpg Evaluation after 11 months postoperative: As it wasn’t possible - due to the high percentage of single FU’s - to achieve the necessary HGI during the 1st operation, we agreed on performing a touch-up surgery (April 2015) through FUE with the strategy to “cherry-pick” the double and triple FU in order to obtain a higher HGI (Hair per Graft Index). - OR-Report April 2015 - 2nd surgery touch-up FUE (Dr. B. Feriduni) Breakdown: FUE in cherry-picking technique with a total amount of 1299 FU (HGI: 2.3 Hairs/FU) to increase the density in the central core and bridge (zone 3 and 4). Internal rating of surgery quality (1 = very bad; 10 = excellent): Extraction: 8/10 Implantation: 8/10 Graft quality: 7/10 Aftercare: Apart from a slight seroma wound on the 1st and 2nd day postoperative, no further inconspicuous findings were visible. After the 2nd procedure, I haven’t heard back from my patient until the 18th day postoperative when he sent some pictures which showed a normal healing situation. And as I didn’t receive any further updates I presumed that the result turned out fine because most patients tend to forget to keep us posted as the growth continues to mature. >> So why did we get this result? In general, following points are important for a good result: The operation (long term strategy, meticulous preoperative planning) The healing process during the first 14 days postoperative Patient related factors like the PGI (Personal Growing Index), general diseases, smoking or other non-MPB related reasons BUPA (Bald Unpatterned Alopecia with a high degree of miniaturization in the donor area) I’ve sent a personal message to the concerned patient to invite him for a check-up at my clinic. I will examine the result and have a closer look at his donor area to exclude BUPA (recently revealed), other patient-related factors and to discuss possible further medical therapy, surgical as well as non-surgical options such as Tricopigmentation in order to help him correct the unexpected result.

    Dear Payam, Due to legal restrictions we are waiting for the written consent of the patient. We're very sorry that we can't respond with a proper medically substantiated explanation until then. Kind regards,
  15. Hi Melvin, thank you! I've changed it, had no idea, sorry for the wrong impression
