Dr. Carlos K. Wesley (NYC) - FEMALE Patient Early Growth with HT and PRP

Recommended Posts

A female patient who underwent a FUT surgery with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley (NYC) can be seen before and soon after her session. The 1600 FU session generated early growth at only 7 months. While newly-transplanted hairs continue to appear for the first time up to 18 months after the date of surgery, early growth can sometimes be appreciated at this stage.


In our practice, there has been an encouraging trend of earlier growth with the inclusion of chilled PRP as graft storage media.

Even five years after her initial hair restoration surgery with Dr. Wesley and his team, this female patient still has the hair fullness that she enjoyed when the newly-transplanted hairs initially grew in.


With time, the transplanted hairs begin to take on the characteristics of their surrounding hairs. This “recipient dominance” means that the transplanted hairs soften over time - often becoming less “wirey”. This is especially true with FUE procedures.
