  1. In this video we review 2 class 6 guys. One is done...had two cases and a nice result. The other is at 6 months out from case 1. Both have very similar heads, hair texture, and likely will turn out similarly. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  2. We just took our medical doctor patient's sutures out. He did a really nice job cleaning and wanted to share advice both on cleaning and his previous work. All you seasoned forum members may find this boring, but I'd encourage newbies to view this and add it to the armamentarium of information they are gathering as they plan their hair options.

  3. Ok guys, here's a 63 year old professional who essentially got scammed for 15 years by unscrupulous hair doctors. The only thing that actually worked for him was his first set of plugs back in the late 80s from a guy who did great plug work...wait...did I really say that????, and who quit before minigrafts and later strip took over. Unfortunately our patient then went to several different doctors along the east coast for a second set of plugs..supposedly cut into minis and micros...then he had 2 or maybe even 3 strip cases. Looks like all he got from that was a smaller bank account and a bunch of scar tissue on the back of his head. Anyhow, he shopped with us for 5 years before we did a 1600 or so strip case, excising a bunch of his plug scars, last summer. He rolled in a week a go and surprisingly...yes surprisingly at 6.5 months, already is growing. I think we'll get final pics next Christmas but watch this and you get the idea of his, and so many other guys' plight...and what can be done. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  4. Ok guys, here's a short video on Steve, who is 5 months and 4 days out from our repair case. Now you seasoned veterans will know that only the beginning of growth is starting. BUT...take a look, you can see we have established a hairline and the forest of mid scalp coverage is there, it just has to grow. He had had SUPPOSEDLY 2500 grafts, which I doubt due to his result and due to his relatively low density donor region, by another practice a few years back. Like most guys who had a poor result someplace, he was really concerned he was going to get scammed again. Fortunately, he had a great attitude, did a good job cleaning, and had an easy case. Now its just waiting. In the video I interview him under poor office lighting, and he already looks better than his preop pics taken in the same light. Then he sprinkled on some fibers, maybe a little too much actually on the crown, but if you saw him in a store, you'd never know. THIS is how lots of guys can pull off a case without a lot of questions from co workers. He's local and I'm sure we'll get a followup in a year. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  5. Its that time of year. I'll be at Big Sky Montana this weekend, never skied there before. If anyone wants to have a chat before I attempt Big Couloir on Monday, simply call my office 703 356 3260. And I'll be at Park City doing the usual ski with old patients and meet a few new ones March 8-13. Same deal... And if you are one of my old patients who wants to ski with me and a few others at Snowbird, I'll buy you lunch and a beer. Dr. Lindsey
  6. Ok guys, listen to Steven...first off he has a mop of hair. Some courtesy of a few FUE cases by me, but mostly from his GENES! Here he is 77 months after I first operated on him and he's signed up for a little tweak of the hairline and partline in a month or so. He does however give excellent advice on hair loss and hair transplantation. Even seasoned veterans would be wise to hear his 2 cents on the life long progressive nature of hairloss. And that is despite meds and surgery. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  7. This younger fellow had a low yield strip case elsewhere. We repaired him and packed the hairline. He came in planning for more hair to the hairline fairly soon, but gosh...I don't see anyplace to put more hair, he's likely to lose significantly more hair due to his family genes, and he looks NORMAL. So hopefully we stopped his hair greed for now and he won't do something with me or anyone else for quite a while. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  8. Take a look at this guy's hairline. First off he had a low yield strip case elsewhere that was a bit too low on his forehead...but once the hairline was put there, he and I just opted to pack it. He looks fantastic and of course...has a bit of hair greed thinking that just a couple more placed here or there would finish him off.... It might finish off his bank account but there is no place to put any more hair on his hairline right now. I told him to spend that money on another ski trip and roll back in in a few years. His video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  9. Lots of you guys hear me preach about how FUE never works as well as strip. It doesn't. BUT, sometimes you are better suited to FUE....for example, you need 1/4 inch haircuts for your work. OR you are a terrible scarrer. There are a few others but those are the big 2 reasons that I'd accept FUE's lesser results than strip gives. Now this doctor has AWESOME thick curly middle eastern donor hair. Here he is at just about 4 years. And like everyone else...he wants to know if he needs more hair. The answer to that is not right now but maybe in the future. So take a look at the video, do your research, and make sure you understand the pros and cons of the various options available to you...not just get sold a procedure that fits your budget by a salesperson.

  10. Our patient Jimmy was bald...and we did a medium sized case a while back. Medium due to his fairly limited donor density. Nevertheless, he grew in quite nicely and we did a second case 3 months ago, adding a few hundred singles to his left hairline and working back toward the crown. All of our recent work has shed and we're just waiting. He drove through the area for business and stopped by for this short video. I'm sure we'll see him for results next autumn. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  11. This guy popped in 9 years out from us repairing his strip scar. AND a few weeks after we did that we FUE'd his hairline to repair the work done elsewhere. He looks awesome and of course has a bit of hair greed. We'll end up doing a little FUE to bolster his density BELOW his scarline repair in a few weeks and then of course he'll decide he wants his hair line lowered...it always happens like that. BUT his hairline looks awesome and I'll talk him out of doing more work there at this point. Take a look at our scar repair and his 9 year FUE hairline. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  12. Take a look at this guy. He came in with not a bad look...but he'd had a low density hair transplant locally. And indeed when we outline where he wants hair..you can see how sparse it was. We packed him with 1200 grafts and as usual, didn't hear from him til he walked in a few weeks ago. His hair is fantastic. Now, I get part of the credit but alot of the credit goes to this guy simply having perfect hair to work with. Its coarse, with a good color match, and he styles it perfectly. Its easy to get good results with that combo! The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  13. Some of you guys may recall our scientist, who had 2 failed FUE attempts at eyebrow transplantation elsewhere. Now given her ethnic background...her donor hair roots are awesome..so my guess is they simply missed the angle and transplanted hairs without viable roots. We excised a tiny ellipse and got around 120 singles and placed them. I put up her early results back in the spring and she flew in at just over a year. She looks great. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  14. Some of you guys may recall this guy's orginal post about 6 months ago. Essentially he had a couple thousand FUE case by a reputable doctor and had very little growth. Or maybe no growth. Inspecting his donor area showed no donor depletion and scars with hair coming out...probably indicating the transplantation of hairs with no viable roots. We see this each and every week here in DC. So we did a strip repair and he's just starting to grow. Pay attention to his 1.2mm scar, easily hidden by his military haircut and the fact that its actually working this time. The video is: Hopefully we'll get him in next summer for a video and maybe work back toward the crown. Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
