Dr. Lindsey 80s plug repair McLean VA

This nice fellow grew up in my area, even had his teeth pulled by the same oral surgeon that I did, and on whom we did and posted a hair case last year....

Well this fellow came in with complaints of too thin and too pluggy of a hairline secondary to several plug cases in the 80s. Although his preop pictures don't show it as well as in person viewing, he really had quite a thin hairline and in normal daylight, it was obvious that he'd had work that would now be considered poor. However, for the time that he had the work done, it looks good...he has good growing hair where he was previously bald! As I've posted gobs of times before, all we really need to do is plant lots more "trees" in his underpopulated and organized "Christmas tree farm", and an irregular "forest" should grow. He does have enough hair to do second case later on and deal with some of his exposed crown.


He also wears a short haircut which shows his old plug scarring...and which for a time will show his strip scar, but I believe he's willing to let the hair grow a little in the back to hide this.


He is a pretty conversive guy and promised that he'd blog if I referred to him as "the handsome man from Virginia". So hopefully he'll chime in.


Shown are preop, intraop, day 3, and day 7 pictures. He ought to be back in a month for a scar check.

Look forward to seeing updates.

 2,000 grafts FUT Dr. Feller, July 27th 2012. 23 years old at the time. Excellent result. Need crown sorted eventually but concealer works well for now.

Propecia and minoxidil since 2010. Fine for 8 years - bad sides after switching to Aindeem in 2018.

Switched to topical fin/minox combo from Minoxidil Max in October 2020, along with dermarolling 1x a week.

Wrote a book for newbies called Beating Hair Loss, available on Amazon

He was in last week for a scar check and essentially has shed all that we put in plus has some shockloss of his plugs...actually looking better than preop.


While he's purchased a new computer, this country boy said he'd had it with trying to post. I hooked him up with the site support staff but still he just couldn't get the hang of posting. ( He was able to get on a different site but even that raised his blood pressure so much he's "done" with blogging ).


I suspect he'll spin by around Christmas for an interim visit and more importantly a final picture next fall. He has a nice girlfriend who wants him to coming shopping in our area periodically so I think we'll see him for future pictures.


I sure hope so.
