This 22-year-old male was bothered by the progressive thinning of his hairline and the frontal portion of his scalp. His surgical hair restoration session with Dr. Wesley included included 2507 grafts incubated in platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

 

 

 

 

 

In addition to his surgical session, the portion of his mid scalp that did not receive grafts was treated with PRP injection and stimulation with a 0.5mm micro roller. The patient returned to Dr. Wesley's office at 10 months. Early growth from his transplant can be seen and this patient's response to subcutaneous PRP injection is included in a larger investigation currently being conducted by Dr. Wesley's office.

This patient's donor scar was 1mm in width - as seen 10 months after his follicular unit transplantation [FUT] procedure with Dr. Wesley (NYC). The first images shows an untouched region of his donor scalp as compared with a the donor scar. The second magnified image displays the donor scar with a 5mm calibration. The claim of 1mm donor scars is common amongst many surgical practices, but actual measurements are uncommon. A very fine donor scar is especially important in this young man's case as the color contrast between hair and scalp is significant.
