Dr Hasson 660 hairline grafts update

Recommended Posts

Meant to state this in the title but I'm only at the 6 month post op stage

 

Some of you may have seen my before and after pics in a previous thread,

 

http://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/eve/174503-my-hair-loss-story-2000-grafts-dr-farjo-6000-grafts-dr-hasson-4years-post-op.html

 

I've come a long way thanks to Dr Hasson and his team! I can't thank them enough for their help and support, theres a reason why Dr Hasson is considered by most to be the best in the business and that reason is his consistent, great results! He's certainly changed my life for the better... i literally look 10 years younger than when i first met him (2007)

 

Anyway just under 6 months ago i had a small surgery to slightly modify the hairline, don't get me wrong it looked great pre (this) op (as you can see from the link to the previous thread) but I'd always waned a slightly straighter hairline, already I've had fantastic growth and even with such a small amount of grafts the improvement has been astronomical.

 

I also hadn't posted any pics of my crown work i had in (? 2012, 1000 grafts) so I've also included a quick pic from above to show the improvement in the crown. I'll update with better pics as soon as i get some but heres what i have for now.... 4 pics indoors in natural light with my hair styled messy, the above pic is also of my hair messy and the last pic was at approx 5.5 months with my hair styled back with gel.

 

I'm 6 months post op on november 5th so I still have improvement to come....

The last pic isn't showing scalp its just the outside light on the hair.... u literally can't see any scalp at all however my hair is styled thanks to the genius of Dr Hasson and his team. I can't recommend them enough and i owe so much to them.

File this one under: Holy crap! :D

 

Absolutely stunning transformation. This basically looks like natural density. I'd be curious to know what the caliber/characteristics of your hair are? It looks straight and medium/fine but it's not easy for an amateur like myself to tell.

 

Enjoy that mop, sir! (The good kind of mop)

 

Edit: Hah, I see you went against the cries of the mob on here and went back to touch it up one last time ;) Well I think we can safely say you've reached your goal now!

Lol thanks mate:) the density is great in all honesty, I couldn't be happier! Never thought when I started the journey at 26 that by 35 I'd get this kinda result, it's beyond my wildest dreams considering I was a diffuse thinner and had little hair from crown to hairline! My hair is pretty straight, maybe a slight bit more wavy since the transplants (it was completely straight naturally). I've always had pretty fine hair, it's probably denser now than it ever was naturally to be honest, all thanks to dr hassons unbelievable surgical ability and finesse. Not many surgeons can dense pack to this extent as reliably as dr hasson IMO, he has an innate ability to knock it out the park every time he takes a swing!

Definitely gives me faith, I have straight/fine hair myself and might like some hairline work done in the future but don't want it to look "off" since my native hair is pretty dense. Good to know that such results are at least possible! All the best.

how many total grafts? And did you change your hair color?

 

 

Including the 2000 from the previous clinic which didn't grow through brilliantly about 10,000 approximately. Hair isn't dyed in any of the pics so not sure why it appears different tbh, maybe different camera/different lighting

 

edit: on the 1 year post op faro pics theres no product in my hair, all other pics have product so that may be a reason why they look lighter, although since the last op more and more people are commenting that my hair looks darker (and thicker)

Amazing. Any idea how many grafts you got left, and can we see a picture of your donor ? Thanks

Great result although I was a bit misled as I didn't understand how 660 grafts took you from a Norwood 4 to a Norwood 2, but I guess that is the 6000 grafts you had before this last 660 grafts. Looks fantastic, congratulations on completing the journey!

 

By the way do you have a picture of the sides, to see your temple points? Thanks. Thanks for updating.

Like I said previously, Dr Hasson is a bad man! It's amazing how this clinic along with Rahal and Dr Ron Shapiro seem to be consistently producing these type of top class results. Home runs every time just like the Kansas City Royals. They are clearly leaps and bounds better than the next best surgeons. Anyone considering FUT would be fools he to go with anyone else

Thanks for the replies, the kind words are much appreciated! I'll try and get some pics of the donor and temple points over the next few days, but if you look in the link in the OP you can see the temple points and the donor in the old thread, to be honest it doesn't look noticeably different.

Lol yeah that's the previous grafts. Take a look at the link to the previous thread. Since then I've had 1000 grafts into the crown and hairline work so the results since , while noticeable are more subtle

via strip probably not a lot, doubt I'll have enough for another strip. however before the last op i was in 2 minds about strip or FUE (due to the small size of the last op) so i had a consultation with lorenzo and he said i had 4000 available for FUE. i decided on strip because of the trust i have in dr hasson and the results I've always had with him and judging by those results i made the right choice for me. but its good to know i have another 4000 available to me if i get any future loss, and the best thing is that H&W have started doing FUE so if i ever do need it done by that time I'm sure they also be knocking FUE cases out the park!

sorry about the crude editing of the face, also its a bit difficult trying to get a good selfie of the back of my head!lol hope these are ok for people to see the donor?

 

Thanks 4 making me post these and realise how grey I'm going!!lol

I'll take some donor pics soon with my hair slashed back and someone else taking the pics so you can see better but these will have to do for now. no complaints with the donor though, still pretty thick and apparently 4000 FUE-able grafts there as an insurance policy

You must have one hell of a donor supply :)


2 poor unsatisfactory hair transplants performed in the UK.

 

Based on vast research and meeting patients, I travelled to see Dr Feller in New York to get repaired.

This is easily one of the top three to five results I've ever seen. Absolutely unreal considering where you began. Just jawdropping in every way.

Thanks mate, I was actually looking at your new hairline with envy the other day! If that grows in the way it should it's going to look ridiculously good!

Ha! Well, we can both admire each others' hairlines. Yeah, I'm pretty excited to see how mine grows in. It's pretty similar to yours, actually.

    • 0,9 mm 3 days no wash, just spray saline on the recipient area After 3 days, start washing only with water not directly poured on recipient. From day 7 gently wash with ph 5.5 delicate shampoo    
    • Whether the extraction tool is motorized or not isn't really the question. What determines the nature and extent of FUE scarring and donor damage are the punch sizes used, the extraction pattern and spacing within the donor, and the extractor's skill. 
    • Which method do you guys think results in less damage to the donor area like less scaring and lower transection rates? I think this is the most import aspect of this for me and remember someone saying manual fue was better in this regard. What's the consensus on this? 
    • Future patients of our clinic know that in case something goes wrong about the regrowth, we offer a free touch up as it was offered to you. You showed concern in all the potential side effects of the medicines you were prescribed. Finasteride (depression after only 2 weeks of usage is inconsistent with the drug mechanism of action). In addition not only you just lasted 2 weeks taking Finasteride, you also stopped Minoxidil once and for good after you had been taking it for 6 months before surgery, losing all benefits you gained thanks to the medicine. You lamented side effects even from a mild saw palmetto supplement. You behaved so bizarrely that dr. Pekiner started to have strong doubts about you following the other post operative instructions. While we are sure you did not take the prescribed drugs. Long message of his team only started to appear after you began to shoot bad words at the clinic in public forums trying to blacken dr. Pekiner's reputation and frighten potential patients. The facts are that the patients treated just before and just after your first and second surgery are all doing or have done perfectly fine. I just published two of them: Something went wrong only in your surgeries and we don't know exactly what happened. We are sure you did not take the prescribed drugs to fight androgenetic alopecia (Finasteride and Minoxidil) and dr. Pekiner has heavy suspects you did not follow the post operative instructions either.  You are sure instead it was all dr. Pekiner's fault, but the 4 patients treated just before and after you, show that the problem is in your case only. Do you have proofs dr. Pekiner performed something wrong? You don't have still you keep on shooting at him. I am repeating myself, a successful surgery requires collaboration and trust between the patient and the doctor, following the post operative instructions is fundamental. It is also possible there is something wrong in your physiology but it is impossible to determine exactly.   There is not an official guidance but it is commonly accepted in the hair restoration world that around 50 grafts per cm2 is the threshold between medium/high density and dense packing, even if that is just a conventional term, because it also depends on graft size. Mostly about taking care of the recipient area, taking the prescribed medicines, not doing heavy activities and not wearing a helmet for 1 month etc. Every clinic provides a list of how to behave after surgery, more or less things are the same for all. I cannot list them all and explain why every point is important here it would take hours. Grafts are anchored way before 7 days post op, but this doesn't mean you can treat them like normal hairs, not at all. Well then you have been badly informed, nowdays most of the top notch clinics implant at 50 grafts per cm2 and more in every case in which a norwood 1 to 4 must rebuild the frontal part and the existing hair behind is at native density. Same story for crown reconstructions. I have never seen a clinic asking a patient to come twice to implant 30 grafts per cm2 square in the first surgery and then 20 grafts in the second one on the same area. Following this principle, clinics who perform mainly frontal reconstructions at high density (lets say Keser's DermaPlast since we spoke about him before) should simply not exist, since they perform only dense packing (50 to 65 grafts per cm2) on daily bases. We perform dense packing in around 50% of our cases. What you say is logical in special cases like transplanting hair on burn scar or damaged tissue, where you have to re-vascularize the area and try to soften the tissue. There is no clinical reason to limit implantations at 35 grafts per cm2 on healthy skin. ...how come, because this is basically a vindictive topic even if it is disguised as an informative one.     Yes, finasteride would help. Dupa and retrograde alopecia are nothing but just having DHT sensitive hair follicles inside the donor area and sparse around the occipital sides (that is why it is called DUPA) and/or above and beneath the donor area and on the periauricular area. You can see patients with initial miniaturization on donor while at norwood 2/3 level, and patients at norwood 5 level with perfect donor. DUPA can begin at a early baldnes stage or not be present at all, there is not a rule. This why Finasteride is ofter considered an assurance for long term maintainance. Example: This one is a doctor Pekiner's patient, norwood 5 level, donor is perfect   This is a norwood 2 patient, he has diffuse miniaturization on all donor and surgery had to be postponed after deciding to raise finasteride dosage.  
    • I am getting HT in a few weeks and wonder what doctors have guys to cove their heads immediately after surgery. I have seen videos in which Dr. Nader has guys wear paper surgical caps home with instructions to remove it upon arrival. My guess is that he allows guys to put on on to go out. This guy wore a beanie over the surgical cap and looked completely presentable. Comments?
