Dr. Robert Dorin performed an FUT consisting of 3,202 folliculars units at his New York City surgical suite 4 months ago.
- ATP spray post-op spray - improves blood supply and jumpstarts the cellular metabolism of the follicules in the critical first 3-4 days post transplant)
-Propecia initiated one month prior to HT
2573 Follicular units transplanted
A total of 4402 hairs
Development progressing as expected. About 4-5 months now of initial growth. Full vertex development will take about 12 - 14 months.
This patient is enjoying early development from his procedure with Dr. Dorin 4.5 months ago. 2375 grafts vis FUT were dedicated to front with allocation to the temple regions. 846 singles, 1445 doubles, and 84 threes made up the follicular units. Propecia started 2 months prior to the procedure.
Extensive hair loss patterns are not ideal in terms of surgical hair restoration so the design and yield are critical to creating a meaningful result. This patient has about 5000 grafts as a donor supply so this initial treatment of 2816 follicular units was focused on the frontal region to achieve the most impact. There was also some subtle framing added to the temples. The grafts consisted of 802 singles, 1827 doubles, and 187 threes - a total of 5017 hairs. As the procedure was only 6.5 months ago, the result should continue to show nice cosmetic change over the next 6+ months.
This patient came to Dr. True for hair restoration in 2002. Faced with what eventually would be considered a classic and extensive balding pattern, the patient thankfully heeded Dr. True's recommendation to start a Propecia regimen. Along with his committment to medical therapy, in 2003 hair transplantion was performed in the amount of 1200 grafts to reestablish permanency throughout the frontal hairline/ edge of the forelock. Fortunately Propecia has been effective in stabilizing the crown region and actually has had some effect in the bridge/deeper frontal region.
If the patient so chooses, additional treatment can be focused on the crown region.
This is an FUT result 9 months post-op. Technically another 3 - 6 months for full cosmetic development. 2811 follicular units were transplanted for temporal, frontal, top/crown coverage. 769 singles, 1675 doubles, 367 threes. What you see in this case is a major transition not only in density but in the quality of the hair - what was once miniaturized, unhealthy follicles now have been enhanced / replaced with permanent, growing healthy hairs.
Paitent in his mid-20s experiencing erosion of the hairline/temple region.
Dr. True performed an initial treatment a year ago consisting of 1605 grafts / 2819 hairs.
485 singles, 1026 doubles, 94 threes. Trichopytic closure.
Dr. Dorin recently visited with his patient for follow-up. It's been about 5.5 months since Dr. Dorin performed an FUT for hairline restoration. The treatment consisted of 1204 follicular units for a total of 2318 hairs. Although 5.5 months is early in the development of a transplant, there is very good consistency and yield at this stage with more change to come over the next 6 months.
Patient in mid 20's had an initial hairline FUT with Dr. Dorin. Contour and density is developing nicely, expecting a bit more of a layering effect and smoothing of texture over the next few months. Propecia is being used for stabilization.
Pure follicular units in the amount of 1408 were transplanted consisting of 348 singles, 873 doubles and 187 threes - 2655 total hairs.
Dr. True followed up with this patient almost 4 years after their initial visit.
The follicular unit transplant is holding up well.
Patient has been using Propecia for top/crown stabilization. He will consider futher treatment depending on how frontal progression materializes.
This patient from South America visited Dr. Dorin for a recent procedure. At 5 days its healing beautifully. Patient wanted to concentrate on frontal/top region with initial treatment - has had decent success with Propecia for over 10 years. The FUT took approximately 8 hours - a total of 3,129 follicular units were transplanted consisting of 1197 singles, 1831 doubles, and 101 threes.
