This 36-year-old male had 2746 FU transplanted in a pattern addressing thinning in his frontal third. The after images were taken approximately 2 years later. One reveals the look of the transplanted grafts up close and another a close-up of the scar after a trichophytic closure. Additional images show the "combed back" hairline after the session.
So, I cancelled my ARTAS appointment with Dr. Leonard. I am 100% going with Dr. Rahal, but I am torn between FUT & FUE.
I am concerned with my scalp's elasticity and high neckline if I choose FUT. Refer to the attached photo showing my high neckline. What do you guys think? Will the FUT scar stretch my neckline even higher than it already is?
Also, this is the length I usually have after my haircut. Do you think my hair will conceal the scar well? I think my hair on the back of my head will conceal the scar, but I'm concerned with my sides.
I know that Dr. Rahal's trichophytic closures are very good...just looking for some insight.
M 35+ losing hair since last 12 years .... now am searching for the best possible option of Hair Transplant.
Have already taken Dr.Batra (10 years back) and Dr.Paul's treatment (3 years back) nothing helped.
Just few weeks back have taken a Advanced Hair Check @ AHS ....
Overall looks very suggestive ... very expensive though ....
I searched for Online review and i got mixed reactions.... half of them are anti-ahs and from the profile you could make out maximum of them are fake profiles.. as if they are getting paid for -ve advertising .... and many of them are saying magical result.
m really skeptical whether to go for it or not ....
need your advice on this ....
Photos attached ....
Today at 7am 1/4/2012 i will be getting a 1600 FUT done by Dr. Rahal, he will fix my hairline and hopefully make Bosely scar less noticeable by closing it off with the Tricho procedure. He stated that i may need future hairtranplants as i am only 21 yrs old. I made the mistake of choosing bosely and i Strongly recommend that NO ONE EVER CHOOSES Bosely for a hair transplant. Dr. Rahal cannot promise me that the scar will be better or worse since it is not of his doing, he has made me fully aware of this. I will post pictures up as soon as my procedure is over.
I wish i would have seen this forum earlier, i was just young and desperate to get back my hairline and Bosely Lied to me...Hopefully Dr. Rahal can correct this
So here is the deal guys. I'm young by HT standards (26) and african american, I have been on and off this site about 2008. Losing your hair this early really really sucks. I refuse to go places without a hat which is messing up my life to a certain extent. Oh and I could go on and on....
My first concern was would I be able to wear my hair short with the scar and everything. But with a Trichophytic closure, Acell with Dr. Cooley, and just good care on my part im sure the scare will be barely noticable in time. Until then I figured I could just cover the scar up to some extent with Dermmatch for a while, until either A. The transplanted Hair grows out and I can grow the rest of my hair with it or B. I can get an FUE into the scar. If I had just go bald for a while I think I would be fine with that. But I found out I have a scalp condition called CVG, which makes my brain look like its coming out of my scalp. So, I really would not like to keep my hair that short in any case. And if I had to choose between plastic surgery (only opiton) to get my scalp fixed or a HT, I choose HT.
Most of you guys said I should wait because I am so young. So I did, tried some hair products. I've pretty much made my mind up to do it but I'm really thinking I should've done it sooner. Nothing has changed in my hair condition. I had a work at home job, which was absolutely perfect for recovery. Now I am in between jobs, I have the money saved up, but I'm not sure now is the ideal time. Because say I get the HT tomorrow and I get called up for an interview next week. What am I supposed to do?? But at the same time its like now or never (or a while). My next job most likely won't be a remote job, and I will have to work a while to even accumulate recovery time. Which from searching looks anywhere from 2 weeks to a month. So what should I do?? Any suggestions or comments about anything at all I would appreciate.
This 54-year-old male desired filling of his temporal recessions and a subtle advancement of his hairline. With a total of 2172 FU, we were able to not only accomplish these goals as we reinforced the frontal third of his scalp, but also transplant into areas of future loss and temples. During the pre-operative consult, the patient emphasized a natural, "not too dense" appearance along the hairline. He returned 9 months postoperatively very pleased with the age-appropriate results.
This 24-year-old male had lost confidence due to his marked hair thinning. His family history revealed a Norwood Type VI pattern and his physical exam was consistent with this distribution. Rather than advancing his hairline (as he initially requested), we designed an age-appropriate hairline pattern using 2263 FU that would continue to look natural into his 60's and 70's. Addressing areas of future loss lateral to the thin areas atop his head also will prove critical as he continues to thin laterally. As he desires a short-length haircut, a trichophytic closure was most appropriate for this patient and allows him to continue to clip his hair with a #2. After photos depict growth at 6 months and again at 12 months, when the patient returned for a subsequent session to cover the midscalp.
