I am excited to announce that I have just returned to my hotel from my second hair transplant procedure with the venerable Dr. Cooley.
If you would like to see the progress and final results of my first hair transplant you can view them here: http://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/eve/174448-2-800-grafts-dr-cooley.html. Long story short, it was an incredible experience. And my hair looks awesome.
Which I guess begs the question, "Why go through this again if you have already a decent head of hair courtesy of Dr. Cooley?"
Well the answer is simply because I can. I have the time off from work, plenty of donor hair and money that I have saved up. And the first experience was so easy, I figure why the hell not?
I wanted to keep the conservative approach that Dr. Cooley and I had first decided during my initial consultation two years ago. So today, we decided to move the hairline down a just a millimeter or two and work on density behind the hairline.
We agreed on 2,000 graphs as the magic number (I may have gotten a few more) to go along with my original 2,800 from two years ago.
I am sure the results will be amazing like they were last time. But of course I will withhold final judgment to the little guys start growing.
But what I do want to say is that once again the procedure was almost pain free. Dr. Cooley stayed there 90% of the time doing the work and supervising. And when he was not, the girls that assist him in the office are just the sweetest and supremely capable.
I am now back in my hotel room with zero pain at all. About to order some room service, pop a valium and watch TV. It almost feels like I am on vacation.
I'll post picture later on this week. But I will say from what I can see in the mirror the work looks extremely clean. And there is no pressure on my donor scar.
Anyone considering getting a hair transplant, please don't forget to check our Dr. Cooley. He is just the best.
Here is another 4K Ultra HD video shot of a patient of Jerry Cooley MD and Hair Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
This patient is in his late 30’s and was very bothered by hair loss in the crown and at the hairline. He had been taking finasteride with stabilization of his hair loss. Dr. Cooley discussed the pros and cons of FUSS vs FUE. Because he was unable to shave his scalp due to work requirements, he opted for unshaven FUSS. We performed 3,648 grafts, placing the 1 and 2 hair grafts at the hairline, and the 3-5 hair grafts in the crown. We also performed PRP/ACell. He is shown at 12 months.
Optimal detail is best observed on a 4K smart tv or 4K monitor.
"Hair duplication" formerly known as "autocloning" coupled with ACell has been a hot topic of discussion amongst patients and hair restoration physicians due to its potential to provide hair loss sufferers with an unlimited donor hair supply and a full head of hair.
But how does hair duplication work and has there been any success with it lately? Below, Coalition member Dr. Jerry Cooley provides the community with indepth insight on the procedure and some success he's been having with it.

In this hair transplant video interview, hair restoration physician Dr. Cooley shares a couple of stories about how some of his hair transplant patients' lives were transformed from surgical hair restoration.
In this hair transplant video interview, hair restoration physician Dr. Cooley discusses what hair loss patients can realistically expect from today's state of the art hair transplants. Realistically, patients can expect an undetectable and natural looking results that they will have noticable coverage, a very noticable improvement and that the results will vary according to their hair characteristics. Dr. Cooley also discusses why realistic expectations are vital.
