Vertex HT with Dr. Suneet Soni 4000 grafts

Recommended Posts

I am 45 years male (Mumbai) India visited Dr. Suneet Soni at Jaipur in May 2014 for my Vertex area hair transplantation my frontal hair line was perfectly fine.

 

After 14 months of research in which i visited so many reputed centers met dozens of expert- hair transplant surgeons in Europe, Turkey, Dubai, India and also met old patients with same kind of vertex baldness and finally I decided to get it done by Dr Suneet Soni. The reason I picked Dr. Suneet was – when I visited Jaipur at his clinic and met him he explained very deeply with all technical aspects for my kind pattern baldness which no one else explained me - I found him really knowledgeable and confident in his work and also I met few patients saw results they were quite impressive.

Before starting consultation Dr. Sunneet made me calm as I was much excited seeing results of others and he gave me glass of water and asked me what is my expectations by hair transplantation.

 

 

My concern was:

 

 

1) Hair transplant should be very natural as I don’t want anyone can differentiate between my transplanted roots and existing roots.

2) I want good density at my vertex area and they should not fall further

3) Procedure should be scar less and safe

 

 

Dr. Suneet further explained every technical aspects of Hair Transplantation

 

1) Hair transplantation is an artistic kind of work, at vertex area each and every individual graft is different directions and angles.

 

 

2) Transplantation at frontal area is very much different then vertex area, at frontal side we comb hair back or sides and due to overlapping of hair it gives us illusion of fullness so we can archive good results in less number of grafts and cover more area in single session but on the other hand every graft of vertex area is different angles and directions (The swirling pattern of hair growth accommodates the change of hair direction and angle ) hence because of lack or overlapping hair - vertex area requires more number of grafts to obtained the fuller and denser look,

So in my case I will be needed around 4000 grafts for best results.

 

 

3) In FUE we cannot extract 4000 grafts from safe donor zone in single session- there are certain limitation in FUE that max 2500 grafts can be extracted from safe donor zone and rest grafts we have to extract from unsafe zone which is not a good idea as sustainability of those unsafe zone roots are not good and they may fall in future while in FUT we can extract up to 4000 grafts from safe donor zone in single session and they will sustain for long. So FUT procedure is preferable in my case.

 

 

4) Dr Suneet explained that he is going to give me Trichophythic closure and there will be almost invisible scar at back side of scalp.

 

 

 

After consultation dr Suneet called his assistant and he took me for blood test, arranged my stay and dinner in his centre as i am from another part of country also he did not charged any money for that , Dr Suneet’s clinic was really very nice and cleaned he maintained high level of hygiene and interiors, facilities were amazing.

 

Next day Dr Suneet started the procedure at 6 am by giving some injections on my scalp but he used some other techniques before that like vibrator and chilling packs - I didn’t even feel any pain of injection pricks - he took around 60 minutes for strip taking procedure. Then I had breakfast - next he took me to another chamber & showed me my hair roots while dividing, it was an amazing experience watching my own roots while dividing on the big screen Dr Suneet Soni explained me further that these are video assisted microscope with 200 X magnification for precised division of grafts without damaging them- there were 15 experts sitting under microscope for graft division and then we moved for next step of making slits I was laying on chair and enjoying movie on the screen in front of my chair - Dr. Suneet made slits and started implantation. We started at 6 am and were done by 8 Pm, the whole procedure was absolutely pain free I can say, it was like spa experience for me.

 

 

Next day of HT- one staff of him gave me head wash with betadine scrub at around 12 pm – Dr. Suneet again explained after procedure precautions & in the same eve i took my return flight from Jaipur to Mumbai.

 

I can say it was very nice experience for me.

Now

 

I am really very happy with my results it is more then what I was expecting.

FUT: 4000 Grafts in (May -2014)

 

 

I have a questions in my mind if you guys could explain me.

 

 

1) In FUE If hair extraction done from unsafe zone what will be the sustainability of that graft, what is the max limit of extraction from safe zone in FUE.

grafts from unsafe zone will be subject to DHT like any follicle in that zone. it may or may not survive.

 

impossible to say the maximum number that can be extracted from safe zone. depends on how many grafts u have vs. how much hair loss u have and the size of ur head plays a roll too and whether or not or a diffuse thinner. many variables

 

"In FUE we cannot extract 4000 grafts from safe donor zone in single session- there are certain limitation in FUE that max 2500 grafts can be extracted from safe donor zone and rest grafts we have to extract from unsafe zone which is not a good idea as sustainability of those unsafe zone roots are not good and they may fall in future while in FUT we can extract up to 4000 grafts from safe donor zone in single session and they will sustain for long. So FUT procedure is preferable in my case."

 

who told you that? is this wat ur doctor wrote to you? only 2500 grafts can be taken from safe zone in a single session? lmao...no shiit! thats why surgeons take 2500 today, 2500 tomoro and so on... why wud u need to have all the grafts implanted in one day?

 

so ur doctor told u that ur not a candidate for FUE cause u need 4000 grafts and u can't do that in one session therefore u need FUT? I really hope ur doctor didn't scam u like that into thinking ur only a candidate for FUT as a result cause if he did then he's is a real dishonest scumbag!

Mr. Busa might you are more intelligent then the doctors who spent more then 15 years to study and to learn surgery MD

 

Any ways I am very happy with the results as you can see my pics -secondly i had many consultation in Europe and in Turkey- seeing my donor area not even a single good doctors suggested me more then 2500 grafts extraction possible in FUE from safe donor zone in my case as my donor area is not good i used to keep my hair long to cover my lower back portion of the scalp, i was suffering from Alopecia Areata in my 30s (9 coin size bald pactches on back and sides of scalp) which is stable now and then due to Tified fever i started loosing hair from my vertex as well. After my hair transplantation done i started using minoxidil and finastride prescribed by Dr Suneet and my hair become thinker and volumetic.

 

* Dr Suneet never told me that i am not a candidate of FUE neither i wrote that.

 

 

 

 

 

I will also request you all to use decent language of communication and respect d feelings of other members.

Congrats, Nishant! You hair looks excellent. As your surgeon noted, the vertex and crown are less efficient areas to transplant than the front. I think your doctor did you proud.

 

Many FUE docs don't believe in taking more than 2,500 grafts per transplant, whether in one day or on multiple days. Others disagree. Your surgeon is in the first camp, so strip made sense for you, especially with the length you keep your hair.

 

Grafts taken outside the safe zone risk being more susceptible to the effects of DHT over time, i.e. miniaturization or "death." Maximum number of safely harvestable FUE grafts from within the safe zone is a case-by-case determination, but some FUE docs say between 5,000 and 6,000 as a rule of thumb.

 

Thanks for sharing.

so which is it ur not a candidate for FUE or you are? you stated ur doctor cud not perform more then 2500 FUE and therefore u have to go FUT.

 

if ur doctor was not comfortable with FUE then u shud have went to an experienced FUE doctor for his opinion. FUT doctors will always steer ppl towards FUT cause thats wat their more comfortable doing and it takes FAR less time.

First of all i want to let u know guys that I am saying about my case only-

 

As per my case from my safe donor- only 2500 grafts can be extracted & this was the limitation in my case- not for every bald person (everyone has different kind of donor density, my donor density was around 70- 80 Follicular units in one square centimeter), as i have bald Alopecia Areata patches on my donor area and if doc extract 4000 grafts from safe donor zone it will become scanty and my bald patches of Areata may be visible from outside also, my case was tough for any expert surgeon also.

 

I visited many FUE experts doctors and all of them suggested me that my case is very tough and only 2500 grafts can be extracted from safe donor zone not more then that but if i want density i can go for BHT combination and 1000 more grafts can be extracted from chest and beard.

 

Hair Fall History, case study, pattern of baldness, expectation of patient, donor area density, recipient area requirement, sustainability of transplanted hair, these are the points a good surgeon understands and accordingly suggests which will be the best procedure to get the best results and very few doctors make extra efforts to understand these things but dr suneet does . he asked me everything - my baldness history my family history of baldness, he understand my needs, he made sq cm area bock to know the density of my donor portion & by small microscope he counted the number of grafts by some software and even i counted them too- he did proper assessment of my bald patches and also explained me everything, i know he is an expert in FUE, FUT and in combination method of FUT + FUE- , he knows what he is going to do and how could he achieve best results according to the case and need.

 

 

As a patient i understand one more fact that we go to doctors with a mindset that i want this medicine from doctor.
