Gentleman, with AGA Norwood 6, had a comb over and wanted to do a large session to restore his hair. He had a 4000+ procedure to frame the face restoring his hair line and covering the frontal to mid scalp area. His after photos are 11 months post-tp.
This is yet another example of Dr. Arocha's Artistic Hair Restoration. At only 7 months post-transplant, this patient already has achieved a significant improvement. His after photos show a completely natural and undetectable result from every angle. Some patients have said that even before their hair loss, their hair was never this good! The donor scar again shows little evidence that anything was done. This was a FUT procedure!
39 yo man with male pattern hair loss wanted to have a mega-session to restore the framing of his face, he had a 4056 FUT procedure. The after photos are taken 5+ months after his procedure. He is very content with his much rejuvenated look.
This is a gentleman in his late thirties wanting to restore his significant frontal-temporal recessions to enhance the framing of his face in a natural way. An excellent candidate because of the thick donor available, he achieved very early growth. In the recent post procedure update at about 2 years, he is showing his fully-grown out result.
Young man, 28+, with MPB S/P hair restoration procedure 1 1/2 years ago presents with full grown in results. He had a total of over 4000 FU transplanted. His hair characteristics were a two edge sword. Coarse hair with a wave is very favorable for creating a fuller result, but a challenge to prevent looking tufty. Here is were the artistic skills come in, creating a dense, but natural hair line that appears soft.
I've been roaming around several hairtransplant sites, in serious consideration of a hair transplant, and I have come upon some clinics in Turkey that claim they can do an FUE 4000-5000 in a 2 day session.
I can't help being amazed, since from what I've researched, though there are several renowned clinics in the US and Europe that can do Strip method (FUSS/FUT) of 4000-5000 in one session, I've never come upon 4000-5000 FUE. It seemed that the consensus here at hair-transplant-network was at most 1500 in one session.
Yet, not only are there several Turkish clinics that claim to do so (though not TransMed on the approved list here), I've even seen several posting of people claiming to have received such. There's even one guy who is over a year, and whose results seem really tempting (though, admittedly, he has curly hair, which helps, I guess.)
So my question is, to hair transplant gurus, and hopefully doctors who visit these forums too: Is it really possible to do 4000-5000 FUE?? Is it feasible? if it is are there no side-effects?? Is there a reason why US clinics never mention such FUE-megasessions?? And then what is the feasible maximum of a FUE session??
Please help. I am really tempted by these clinics, yet I fear there is something strange that it's only happening in Turkey (though here in Europe, going to Turkey for a cheap hair transplant does seem to be happening a lot). And if there's something wrong, I also feel compelled to warn others on the site, to avoid them being tricked into dangerous side effects or possibly ruineous results and wasted money!
All answers would be dearly appreciated!
