A 33-year-old male received a total of 4534 grafts with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in order to fill in not only the frontal half of his scalp, but also to add density to his mid scalp. Below, he can be seen before and three (3) years after his FUT session. For his procedure (as with all of our patients), platelet rich plasma (PRP) and ACell were used as storage solutions.

Wow. Beautiful. This is the largest single-session FUT of Dr. Wesley's I recall seeing.

 

Looks like this fellow styles his hair with Vitalis or Brylcreem, so I imagine it looks even denser au naturale. Nice!

It was actually performed over two sessions.

Billena,

 

Dr. Wesley definitely does impressive work. I encourage you to present some top down view photos if you have them as well. I think that will help us get a better appreciation of the overall result as well.

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

Thanks for your comments, everyone. Below, please find intra-operative images that demonstrate the surgical pattern that I used on this patient. For each procedure, our practice uses a combination of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and ACell as a graft storage solution.

Good catch, mav! Thanks for the correction.

Agreed, Bill. We will certainly take and present more overhead images if and when this patient comes back to address his thinning crown.

 

In general, patients who have ample coverage of the frontal portion of their scalp all the way posteriorly (backwards) to the "vertex transition point" they are left with a natural appearance that looks full from both the front and the side. The vertex transition point is the region towards the back of the head where the scalp begins to slope downwards. Coverage back to this point with a feathered, concave arc of a border allows the transplanted pattern to match the border of any naturally-occuring thinning in the crown. That way, patients are never obligated to return for another transplant simply to make it look natural. Instead, they have the choice of filling in the crown or leaving it thin with a natural-appearing border.

Here are magnified images of this patient's donor ad recipient areas taken during his initial consultation in our office.

Wow, what a transformation. If this guy is not happy, who else could be happy about his results?

 

Do you have pictures of the hairline from shorter distance? The hairline looks very natural. Pale skin and dark hair typically looks unnatural even with good density. This is one of the most natural results of this kind I have seen.
