  1. Here's a 12 month update on our hair transplant repair from a major chain. He's looking good but let me remind everyone that for repairs....final result is probably 15-18 months. Hopefully he'll stop by after all the covid stuff improves and hopefully that is sooner rather than later. In the video is an interview at 6 months that some of you all may have seen. The video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIumfvukuAA Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  2. This guy is about my age and had mild hairloss which we FUE'd 10 years ago. Surprisingly he really hasn't lost a lot more. In the video I show his first case and closeups of his scars and a quick view of another 700 fue's we did recently. The video is: He's local and will pop back in for a 6 month visit whenever this covid stuff settles down. Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  3. This guy might look familar to seasoned forum users. He's one of my favorite patients...mainly because he has the best non-military stories of any patient we've ever had. We started on him 10 years ago with 3 FUE cases, and every few years he emails me at 1am on a weekend night when he shaves his head and decides he wants a few more hairs. Literally this has happened 4 or 5 times. He's been married, divorced, now married again and perhaps we're done. Actually the biggest bummer about hair work is that we get to know guys pretty well...and after their grown in....particularly after we're DONE...we never see them again Since we don't sell any of that quackery that some practices do...we lose track of our favorite patients. Once in a while we'll get an email pic often on vacation with an attractive female with our patient...but that is it. The video is: Dr. Lindsey
  4. That is an excellent question. I think the real problem is days 4-7....when these fellows don't rub/shampoo off crusts which then form a big plaque...that lifts rows of hairs out. Here's the trial lawyer's head that made me realize this. And this is day 7. So you are right HT Hope. And so are the 2 excellent doctors you reference.
  5. Some of you have seen my videos where I try to emphasize the importance of cleaning postop. It really became clear to me about a decade ago when a hairpiece wearing trial lawyer really did a poor job cleaning and by day 7 had literally alleys of crust extracted grafts that were gone! We ultimately did a second case for his crown and addressed those areas and have posted a bunch of updates on him...but that is when it struck me that early on...the crust can have stronger adherance to hairs than the scalp does...and can pull them out! WE offer free help with cleaning postop and still people don't clean. This special forces guy is a prime example. We did a nice case on him...his wife was having a baby and although they were fairly close..he didn't come and did a poor job cleaning. We did a little touch up on him and made him come daily to help him clean. Look at the difference! At just 5 months out he looks awesome. And I show his scar after being in his head twice, and a short haircut. Do what your doctor says...but if you're our patient or going to be our patient....CLEAN! The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  6. I've posted a bunch of videos discussing the 2 options to lower female hairlines. Well 3 actually...doing nothing is the easiest and cheapest option and frankly, in the US...MOST caucasion women have naturally higher hairlines. Having now done 4000 facelifts...that is a fact of our population. So the 2 options are...1. Reverse browlift which immediately lowers the hairline about an inch or so. Its pretty quick, taking us about 45 minutes in the office with oral sedation. And usually, the scar is minimal. 2. Hair transplantation which takes a year to grow in and can be designed to fit the patient's goals of a hairline. And frankly half of the #1 patients we see....end up doing a small hair transplant a year or 2 later...women have hair greed too! We have another patient like this next week who did several videos on reverse browlift for me. Anyhow, here is a hair restoration and at a year...I thought she looked a little thin in 2 or 3 areas so we did a little touchup and we were glad we did. With that very fair skin and very dark hair...no matter how tightly the hair is placed...its just not as much as is needed due to the color mismatch.

  7. This is a 1 year update on our young lady who had a right eyebrow scar that we repaired with eyebrow hair transplant last spring. She does a short interview and we discuss the difference between eyebrow and scalp hair...so that patients understand the limitation of eyebrow transplants. For some reason, we've gotten maybe 12 calls about eyebrow work since the covid 19 crisis started...more than we get in a year normally, so here's some info to consider as you do your research.

  8. In this short video I show our patient from 8 years ago, previously posted a few years back after another ski trip. She lives in Utah and I did a frontal case on her, and subsequently her aunt (also posted). She was the only taker in the ski challenge of 2020....possibly due to coronavirus shutting down snowbird the day we had the contest. Anyhow, she has an unremarkable hairline at 8 years. THAT is what we strive for. Unremarkable. It calls no attention to itself and nobody would ever guess she had anything done. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  9. This fellow popped in just before the covid shutdown. He has grown in fantastic and now that his sun bleached hair is darker...I agree with him that we probably ought to think about lowering his hairline a bit. But watch the video...when he is in the summer...that wispy tuft is hard to see. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  10. Here's a 5 month update...probaby half growing..on a 1000 graft FUE case. Those curly hairs, and virtually no skin/hair color mismatch already make him look awesome...to the point where our patient is shaving a small partline in. When someone looks this good this early...its really tough to say if they are fast growers, or we put too many hairs in (never heard of that though), or we just got lucky. The video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=219BFY_gA1k We'll probably get an in person interview this fall, sooner if we can start getting back to pre-covid activities. Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  11. Here's virtually a 365 day result of 1000 FUEs to address an asymetric hairline in a 30ish year old asian male, with preop, early followup, and 12 months shots and close up views of the hairline and donor area. Thankfully he had thicker, more resilient, hair allowing easy extraction with minimal root trauma. The video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_vC-hSxAl8 We have a virtual twin of this fellow at 6 months, also growing well, and expect a video of him this fall. Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  12. In this brief video we show how....with proper planning and by growing surrounding hair longer....that a class 4 or 5 patient can get 3000 grafts and at a week, conceal all evidence of the procedure. Now I realize some guys just can't grow the surrounding hair and comb it over, and some (like me) have really wirey hair that simply WON'T comb over...but certainly 40% of our bigger case patients can pull this off. Trouble is, that despite us telling them this at the preop meeting, about half of guys get a nice haircut to "help me out"...then they can't conceal the case. Our philosophy is always come with as long of hair as you can...it gives us and you the most options. You can cut hair in 10 minutes when you want, but it takes a month to grow a half inch.

  13. One of our favorite repair patients stopped by for an unrelated issue recently. He did a short interview, now 6 years out from us repairing 2 unsuccessful strip cases by a fellow who just dabbles in hair. I've preached for years that while hair looks like easy surgery...unless you do a lot of them....you simply don't have the little extra attention to detail in multiple areas...cutting, designing, placing etc...that separates consistent hair restoration from most of what is available out there. I know...as I've admitted many times...I USED to dabble in hair in the 90s....and only after I made the decision to go big or go home...did I get good. Lots of doctors never make that decision....and with the rent a techs and machines...its only getting worse for the uneducated consumer. Our video showing the flipping of virgin heads and repair cases...which last year was something like 27 virgin heads and 113 repair cases...illustrates that point. So take a look at our guy...I don't particularly care for the curve into the temples that the first doc did...but its what we had to work with and looks reasonably unremarkable. I point it out in the video which is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DC51k4mHY98 Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  14. Here is a younger asian fellow that had an asymetric hairline. We just did 1000 FUE's and show his case and donor and recipient sites up close at 6 weeks. Some of you may find him familiar. He is virtually identical to a guy who is now just a year out. We shot this video about 2 weeks ago and the 1 year guy showed up for pics a day or so later. Now that elective surgeries are on hold due to covid...Wendy and I'll catch up on video production and will post the grown out case soon. It's really uncanny how similar these 2 cases were and I'd expect this guy's hairline to look awesome next year. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  15. Some of you all may recall previous videos with this guy, who'd had 2 or 3 non productive surgeries elsewhere, came to me and got a case done...then got hit by a landing airplane! I visited him in St Barths last month and interview him where he got hit. Watch a plane land and almost get another guy! The video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMj_4DKuhi0 There is really no hair transplant info in this video except...Don't get hit by an airplane postop! Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
