Dr. Cam Simmons – 3219 grafts in hairline and temporal points

Recommended Posts

This 49 year-old man had a Norwood 3 pattern with thinning temporal points. He had average diameter, mostly straight, salt-and-pepper hair with average scalp laxity and good donor density. He had more hairs per follicular unit than usual.

 

As he had a relatively small area of hair loss, a great supply of donor hair, and he was unlikely to ever become extremely bald, it was reasonable to restore his hairline and temporal points. We planned to transplant about 2100 grafts in his frontal hairline and 900 in his temporal hairlines and temporal points.

 

We transplanted 3219 grafts. We needed a lot of 1s and 2s to create a soft transition zone and had to split about 400 3s and 4s to get enough 1s and 2s. By sampling, he had about 911 ones, 1063 twos, 589 threes, and 656 fours. He had 28% 1s, 34% 2s, 18% 3s, and 20% 4s and still averaged 2.3 hairs per graft.

 

These photos were taken 13 months after his hair transplant and are shown with his written consent. At his follow-up visit he said “I am very happy. Nobody knows … not even my Mom.” ( … until now.)

Great work doc.


2 poor unsatisfactory hair transplants performed in the UK.

 

Based on vast research and meeting patients, I travelled to see Dr Feller in New York to get repaired.

What a terrific result. Love the temple points. Funny how you can see the color change from brown to grey at the temple points in the profile pictures. His donor hair must not have turned grey yet like his sides.

Thanks aaron1234

 

I use the hair from the sides of the head for temporal points and the front of the hairline. In his before photos, his hair was grey in his natural temporal hairlines but not as grey above his ears. Men often grey in their temples first then progress to the sides and hairline but there is a salt-and-pepper effect.

 

There are a few grey hairs in his temporal points now but not as many as before. His hair direction also lets the transplanted hair drape over the grey hair that was there before.

 

As his hair continues to grey, his temporal points will grey again before the hair on the back of his head ... unless he likes brown temporal points and chooses to dye them!

I like the thick temple points, looks like he got a tan too!

 

Thanks sparky

 

That's life in the Great White North. HT in early May (no tan) and follow-up in mid-June the next year (tan).

 

Also the new blue background helps people pop!
