  1. Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately we currently do not have any detailed pictures of the FUT scar. We will provide them when the patient will come in for his second round, as we will have the opportunity to shave his head in view of the procedure. Concerning this patient's hair color : as you can see in the "before" photos, his donor hair is salt and pepper and the transplanted hair maintained this characteristic once regrown. It is also to be noted that the patient was dyeing his recipient hair, before the procedure.
  2. PATIENT'S DETAILS ✓ 52 years old, losing hair since the age of 20, with a family hair loss history (father, brother and paternal grandfather NW V). ✓ Taking Minoxidil and Propecia since several years (even though his hair loss has continued to progress). ✓ Thin hair. ✓ Normal follicular units. ✓ High % of hair in telogen phase. RECOMMENDED TREATMENT This 52-year-old patient underwent a FUT procedure in September 2018, when he received 3428 FUT grafts, with the aim of restoring his frontal and midscalp areas. The pictures taken at the clinic during his six-months and one-year follow-up show very nice and natural results. The patient is currently considering a second procedure in order to cover his vertex, next year (most likely an FUE consisting of approximately 2500 grafts). As usual, we will keep the community updated as soon as new material will be available. SURGERY DETAILS ✓ 3428 grafts ✓ Technique: FUT ✓ Incisions: 40-45/cm2 ✓ Grafts Breakdown: ☞ 690 Single FUT grafts ☞ 1921 Double FUT grafts ☞ 722 Triple FUT grafts ☞ 95 Quadruple FUT grafts ✓ Total number of Hair: 7078 ✓ Average Hair/Graft: 2.06 Dr. Jean Devroye
  3. PATIENT'S DETAILS ✓ 37-year-old female, suffering from Androgenic Alopecia since the age of 27. Hair loss stabilized. Her mother and aunt suffer from the same condition. ✓ No medications (side effects from Minoxidil). ✓ Medium hair. ✓ Normal follicular units. RECOMMENDED TREATMENT This 37-year-old female patient came to visit me to discuss about a possible solution for her hairline and temples thinning, caused by Androgenic Alopecia. She had suffered from that condition since the age of 27. She had tried to use Minoxidil in order to improve the situation, but unfortunately the medication caused side effects (hair growing on undesired areas). The loss had nevertheless stabilized since few years already. During the consultation, we therefore agreed upon performing a FUT procedure complemented by a small FUE in order to cherry-pick one hundred softer hairs from the nape area with the aim of restoring the very first hairline and temples. Eventually, the patient received a total of 2136 grafts. The post-operative pictures were sent in by the patient. One year after the surgery, she is very satisfied with her new look : the situation has actually remarkably improved, the yield seems excellent and the results are very natural. SURGERY DETAILS ✓ 2136 grafts ✓ Technique: Combo FUT + FUE ✓ Incisions: 45/cm2 ✓ Grafts Breakdown: ☞ 688 Single FUT + 100 Single FUE grafts ☞ 1318 Double FUT grafts ☞ 30 Triple FUT grafts ✓ Total number of Hair: 3514 ✓ Average Hair/Graft: 1.84 Dr. Jean Devroye
  4. PATIENT'S DETAILS ✓ 30 years old, NW IIIv-IV, losing hair since the age of 25, with a hair loss history in his family (uncle maternal side, NW IV). ✓ Taking Minoxidil 5% since 4 months before the surgery. ✓ Medium caliber hair. ✓ Normal follicular units. ✓ Average % of hair in telogen phase. RECOMMENDED TREATMENT Here is a nice example showing a frontal area and vertex restoration, done in a single session, consisting of 3545 FUE grafts. While I am usually averse to the idea of grafting the anterior and vertex areas at the same time, while leaving a section of the midscalp untouched, in this specific case I agreed (following a fairly conservative approach). I have given my consent based on several factors : the patient's family hair loss history (just his maternal uncle reached the NW IV stage), the fact that he was under medications to maintain his native hair and that his hair loss was stable since a couple of years already. Moreover, his donor area is very rich and can still provide an important amount of grafts (approximately 3000-3500, not taking into account the potential BHT resources) so that it will be possible to cover the new balding areas in the future, if his hair loss progresses. Below are shown the pre and intra-operative pictures taken at the clinic and the post-operative photos sent in by the patient (1, 3, 6 and 12 months after the procedure). SURGERY DETAILS ✓ 3545 grafts ✓ Technique: FUE ✓ FUE scoring and extractions executed with my WAW system, now widely used in the sphere of FUE. It consists of a very precise pedal that enables to control the movement of the punch, that I also designed myself. The main advantage is to reduce substantially the number of damaged and transected hair, thus to raise the quality of the procedure. The system is now used worldwide and several dozens of surgeons or centres are already using it. ✓ Incisions: 40-45/cm2 ✓ Grafts Breakdown: ☞ 407 Single FUE grafts ☞ 1363 Double FUE grafts ☞ 1283 Triple FUE grafts ☞ 492 Quadruple FUE grafts ✓ Total number of Hair: 8950 ✓ Average Hair/Graft: 2.52 Dr. Jean Devroye
  5. PATIENT'S DETAILS ✓ 56 years old, losing hair since the age of 38. Hair loss quite stable since several years. ✓ Taking Minoxidil. ✓ Medium caliber hair. ✓ Normal follicular units. ✓ Low % of hair in telogen phase. RECOMMENDED TREATMENT This 56-year-old patient wished to cover his crown. He underwent his FUT procedure in April 2018, when he received 2515 FUT grafts. As usual during a vertex restoration, I have grafted the adjacent areas as well, so that the results will still be natural if and when the hair loss progresses. The pictures sent by the patient and taken at the clinic during his one-year follow-up show remarkable improvements and a very good result. SURGERY DETAILS ✓ 2515 grafts ✓ Technique: FUT ✓ Incisions: 40-45/cm2 ✓ Grafts Breakdown: ☞ 293 Single FUT grafts ☞ 1523 Double FUT grafts ☞ 695 Triple FUT grafts ☞ 4 Quadruple FUT grafts ✓ Total number of Hair: 5440 ✓ Average Hair/Graft: 2.16 Dr. Jean Devroye
  6. Thank you all for your kind comments. The patient started taking Finasteride two months before the procedure. He stopped the treatment some months after, then resumed again. I think that the patient's donor can still provide approximately 2500-3000 grafts. One day, with this amount, we will be able to achieve an almost total coverage thanks to the grafts. The graft placement visible in the photos the day after the first surgery just confirms one of my strong opinions. The placement is crucial. This patient's hair quality - very good, wavy - certainly improves the perceived density. However, this is exactly the kind of result that my team and I always aim to obtain.
  7. The patient came to my office for a check-up consultation in March 2019, one year and two months after the surgery. At that time, the patient expressed his wish to undergo a second procedure in order to perfect his hairline and increase his frontal and midscalp density. At the end of May 2019, a FUE consisting of 2138 grafts was performed. Please find below the photos showing the results of the first FUT surgery at +12 (sent in by the patient), +14 and +16 months, as well as the details and pictures of this second FUE procedure. SURGERY DETAILS ✓ 2138 grafts ✓ Technique: FUE ✓ FUE scoring and extractions executed with my WAW FUE system, now widely used in the sphere of FUE. It consists of a very precise pedal that enables to control the movement of the punch, that I also designed myself. The main advantage is to reduce substantially the number of damaged and transected hair, thus to raise the quality of the procedure. The system is now used worldwide and several dozens of surgeons or centres are already using it. ✓ Grafts Breakdown: ☞ 438 Single FUE grafts ☞ 968 Double FUE grafts ☞ 708 Triple FUE grafts ☞ 24 Quadruple FUE grafts ✓ Total number of Hair: 4594 ✓ Average Hair/Graft: 2.14 Dr. Jean Devroye
  8. Thank you for your comment and query. So far, I have used pubic grafts mainly to restore eyebrows. Sometimes, to restore beard or sideburns. Given the weaker nature of pubic grafts, it's not always easy to extract them; however, if transection is avoided, they provide a good yield. I frequently use beard grafts to fill in the scalp. Pubic hair could help, if necessary.
  9. Indeed, I do use the hybrid punch to remove grafts, from frontal region included. Its transection rate is particularly lower compared to a sharp punch - it is a huge advantage, especially if you plan to reuse the grafts. Thanks for your query. Sean, JohnCasper, thank you for your kind words.
