  1. This 33 year old walked in 33 months out from his frontal case looking great. He does a short interview and gives a closeup of his donor area with a very short cut. The video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HN0Y_1zbhIA&feature=youtu.be Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  2. Here we interview a fellow 6 months out from a repair case...I'd forgotten he'd been done elsewhere...so remember, that it'll be a good 15 to 18 months to get the final result. He already looks good and gives some decent advice in his short interview. The video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4BkCmjXqo8&t=117s Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  3. In this short video we discuss a 40ish year old with fine hair, now 20 months out from surgery with a short haircut and virtually imperceptible scar. It can be tricky with the combo of fine hairs, and short haircuts--which limits layering and styling. I am not talking about a combover...but styling definitely adds to transplant results. But due to contemporary hair styles and lots of military patients...we see this alot. He looks very natural and that is the goal...an unremarkable hairline.

  4. In this short update, our patient has turned the corner and really starting to grow from his case last winter. We've put up several videos of this guy, who runs a gym a few hours from our office. Interestingly we did have a bit of trouble with donor site irritation and finally figured out that he spent lots of time on weight benches...and I mean LOTS of time... and the sweat irriated his scarline. Once we determined this was the cause, all it took was putting a clean towel down on the bench to rest his head on, to solve the problem. He's since signed up for his second case and we'll surely have updates over the next 18months. The only real question is if he's going to propose to his girlfriend or not.

  5. Here's another fairly public figure who had a no or low yield strip case by a practice designing a case around low downtime, medium budget and financing options, and slick marketing, rather than doing what the patient needed...which was to pack that front third. Here he is at 8 or 9 months postop looking good and at 15 months, when he's fully grown in, he ought to look great. The video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvcJ7st_GyM Dr. Lindsey
  6. Promotional??? Cosmo I'm simply reviewing the lead article in the hair forum. Like all trends in medicine and politics, the pendulum swings too far and then comes back...probably too far..and then so forth. No doubt FUE is here to stay, and in patients with good donor hair and healthy roots with good connective tissue around them...it works probably as well as strip. Unfortunately many people have fine hair roots and they get shredded, yes shredded...during the most gentle extraction (like skinny little plants in this video ((from way back before my beard )) AND, given the volume of no yield or low yield FUE repairs I do, and the few other hair docs here in the US that I interact with do as well, I'm pretty sure a lot of people are getting butchered. Usually by a clinic just starting out in hair that added hair as a new profit center to an ENT/derm/plastic surgery office. And by the time we see them, the story is usually the same, they got "sold" by a slick ad and didn't do any research. Til it was too late. I've seen doctors do exactly the same thing. Lastly, I have now heard from several doctors, a bunch of techs wanting jobs, and a few patients...that with one of the robot systems this is occurring: Since the company supposedly gets a dollar every time the machine "fires"...the doctor puts on a 1.5 mm punch so that he/she will get at least one hair for transplantation. And if they get 5 or 6 hairs, supposedly a cutter will sliver that like we did minigrafts and micrografts in the early 90's. Now I haven't seen this personally but after hearing the same story from maybe 10 people, where there is smoke there is usually fire. I suspect that FUE and strip butchery is here to stay, and only by educational sites, such as this forum, can you the patient get educated and make the best choice for you. But get educated first, see a real doctor at your consultation, look at some results of that doctor, see a surgery going on if possible, and then decide what is best. I knew this post would be controversial and frankly MOST people on this forum are well educated. I'm not trying to sway you guys, you've already made your mind up and most of you know the facts. Its the virgin head that has seen a sales person who has tailored a surgery to fit that customer's budget and downtime with no discussion of the big issues, that I'm trying to reach--before they impulse buy a surgery. Dr. Lindsey
  7. Some of you guys may recall this fellow's original post...way back in 2011. Anyhow, out of the blue, he emailed in an update from his sofa, in a state several hundred miles away. As Wendy and I discuss, I really wish he' have allowed us to show his face as that really shows how well his face has been framed. However, he has a public job and we can't show it. He really looks good, although I think his increased stress with a wife and kid, as well as a few years going by...suggest we may see him again for that middle third....

  8. In this short video we review a recent lead article in The Forum, the ISHRS society's publication for hair transplant doctors. The society has been on a roll lately, trying to combat black market clinics, surgery being performed without a doctor, and FUE slaughterhouses. Essentially the society says what leading doctors have said for years....FUE has limitations, and YOU the consumer need to know the pros and cons of both strip and fue, so that you, not a sales person, can make the best decision for your head. The video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHEj9qdSqUs Dr. Lindsey
  9. In a recent hair journal for the ISHRS, Joe Tillman--a pretty well known doctor rep/patient educator, did a bunch of spoof ads trying to warn patients against making stupid hair transplant decisions. Wendy and I discuss a couple of our favorites. I have no relation to Mr. Tillman, have never met him, and other than maybe an email or 2 on a forum discussion years ago, I have again no relation to him. However, I think he is spot on with these ads. And I applaud his efforts to educate the consumer against foolish decision making when it comes to hair surgery.

  10. In this short video Wendy and I tell you how we've gone from doing mostly virgin head cases 10 years ago to doing virtually all repair cases now. Common stories from many of our repair patients are: 1. Slick ads and an even slicker consultant with no doctor meeting preop 2. New doctors to hair offering "deals" with their new robot/automated FUE systems 3. Price Unfortunately not only is the donor area now somewhat...or more...depleted, but the patient now has lost all trust that the surgery will work as described, making everyone's job a little tougher.

  11. In this video we show you a younger girl with a very high hairline and discuss the options of putting hair in front of the current hairline vs doing essentially a reverse browlift, pulling the hairline toward the nose, rather than the brows up...to lower the hairline. We're now doing these in the office in about an hour and TYPICALLY the scar is really minimal and concealed by hairs in front of the scarline itself. However, more than half of these patients ultimately decide to add a few hairs anyway...partly due to chasing that "perfection is the enemy of good" line I always talk about, but partly to address the upper temple/sideburn hairs. The video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygB1JIGMOIw Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  12. I've posted a few of these in the past and this patient was kind enough to do a short interview. We discuss the pros and cons of hairline advancement vs hair transplantataion, and frankly a finicky lady like this patient ultimately will probably end up doing both. We brought her hairline down about an inch in less than an hour and at a month...other than expected redness of the scarline..she looks as expected with no pull back of the hairline. The video is: Dr. Lindsy McLean VA
  13. This 5 minute video shows our patient, a neurosurgeon with class 5 hairloss before his case. We did a nice 2800 or so graft case and, like many guys, at 2 months out...he thought he'd made a mistake. That's normal...all the hair falls out, your bank account is smaller, the scar is a little redder.....I understand the frustration. He stopped by at 7 months out and did this brief video, and hopefully will look twice as good at 14 months. The video shares many patients' concerns...this time expressed by the doctor patient...who is just as uptight as everyone else is after hair restoration. The video is: Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  14. In this short video, we have a guy my age, with class 4 or 5 hair loss on whom we did a nice frontal third case. We show close up shots of the scar early on and late...and his results. He makes it challenging in that with that short haircut....there is no layering to give extra hair "body" in the front, and that scar has to be excellent. The video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJ2yZSOnQOE&feature=youtu.be Dr. Lindsey McLean VA
  15. Michael was kind enough to do a couple of interviews. We did a frontal case on him a year or so ago and he returned to finish off the crown. Virtually always, I push patients to let me place a few hundred single hair grafts along the hairline. NO MATTER HOW TIGHTLY we pack hairs at the hairline...a few more always are beneficial. And particularly when we're back in the crown on that second case...those singles would be of less value than at the hairline. He lives nearby and I expect a final visit and video next summer.
