This post features a 31 year old gentleman with MPB Norwood 4v/5 who came to Arocha Hair Restoration wanting to start the hair restoration process with a procedure of 3000 FU. He has medium/fine hair caliber and average density of 80 FU/cm2. The after photos were taken during an impromptu visit 10 months post transplant. He stopped by after he had worked out and perspired a great deal. He stated that he would be back in a few months for his one year follow up visit.

Very very nice!! Can we have some detail on graft placement and grafts per sq cm? The post op pic looks like none were placed on the crown but his crown seems to have filled in. Maybe he is on propecia?

 

Thanks

Hi Cant decide,

 

Thanks for taking the time to post and for the kind comments. After asking Dr. Arocha I found out the hairline was placed with a density of about 65 fu/cm2. The patient is on maximal medical therapy to prevent progression of hairless, including Propecia, Rogaine 5%, and Nizoral 2%. He is showing a good response to the medical therapy in the crown area.

Christine,

 

Another home run by Dr. Arocha! I love the hairline design and the density is great!

 

Thanks for posting!

The hair line looks great but behind it is still very thin and his "faux" hawk kind of covers it up.

 

Maybe he is considering further sessions...but at least his hair line looks really good.

Christine - Did this patient ever come back for a 12 month follow up and if so, can you share some pics? I would love to see where he ended up. I really liked this result at 10 months.

NEWHAIRPLEASE,

 

Thanks for the kind comments! The team sure appreciates it.

 

Cant decide ,

 

Thank you so much for your interest in our work. This patient has said that he will come in on a few follow up calls. However, he has not. Having surpassed his goals for his hair restoration, it is not his top priority to come in for follow ups.

This is a great example of what I have been saying forever. Even with some thinning still apparent on the top, as long as you have a solid hairline and solid side profiles, you will have a solid overall look IMO.

I agree with your philosophy on the side profiles. You mentioned this was a priority for your next visit with Dr. Rahal. Any chance we can see some pics?

Absolutely! I go in for my consult March 25th in preparation for my second surgery in August. I will post pics after my consult along with a write up of what the Doc and I decide on the game plan. Of course pics documenting my entire second procedure will also be posted.

Can’tdecide,

 

I often see men with advanced stage MPB but residual forelock even the most minimal ones with 10-100 hairs ask what is the chance that I may damage their native hair during their surgery? The lesson is that even this minimal amount of hair gives some framing which gives the patient some valued benefit. Dr. Beehner has lectured for years about his approach to surgical restoration of Advanced stage MPB. At the heart of his design is the important forelock area. So you are correct the restoration of the hair line with a focus on the forelock has a profound benefit in our patient’s hair restoration outcomes!

Why do you comb the hair forward covering the transplanted area? And in the one pic, the hair is combed in from the sides. I agree with spanker.

Hi HairE,

 

Thank you for taking the time to look and comment on our photos. This particular patient came in with his hair styled forward for his follow-up visit. We hope you find this to be a useful resource as you begin your research. :)

 

Thank you,

 

Kira
