Dr. Ron Shapiro - Pre-Op & 7 Months Post Op (2777grafts - 5222hairs)

Recommended Posts

FUT Surgery with Dr. Ron Shapiro

Total Graft/Hair Breakdown: 2777gr – 5222 hairs

1’s – 732

2’s – 1662

3’s – 366

4’s – 17

 

Earlier this week, SMG posted a result of Dr. Paul’s at 7 months post op. Coincidentally, we are presenting another 7 months result but this time it’s Dr. Ron’s patient. While both patients are extremely pleased with their results thus far, this result doesn’t have the same "wow" transformation as Dr. Paul’s patient at the same benchmark. Dr. Paul’s patient had an advantage of having a bigger size graft session by almost 800 grafts, but the biggest difference is the 2562 more hairs. I'd say that's a significant difference. Factoring both graft and hair count is important when viewing cases. Dr. Ron’s patient also has finer caliber hairs as well. Good donor density and hair characteristics play a major role in one’s results.

We need to keep in mind that this patient is at 7 months post op and has another 6 months to achieve his full results. He’s a steady grower but not necessarily a fast grower.

What an amazing result! Janna, one of the photos does not have the patient's face blocked out, though.

Hdude,

 

Somewhere around 4800 grafts is our biggest session. There are several who have had around 4500 graft session. Earlier this week, we did a patient who had a little over 4500 grafts but 500 of the grafts were DFU's (double folliculicular units) so he's technically the highest grafts session with just over 5000 grafts equivalent. We'll keep an eye on him and hopefully he'll update us.

 

I'm not sure but the biggest session from multiple surgeries is around 6500 grafts on a patient. I actually plan on posting his pictures today or next week depending on my schedule. He started 12 years ago and has had 4 surgeries. The last procedure was 8 years ago. He plans on doing one more procedure soon.

 

Thank for the comments Aaron and Orlhair. I agree Aaron that the gray hairs help.
