Vladimir V. Panine, MD - Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic-2 FUE Procedures 4,171 grafts

Recommended Posts

This gentleman had diffused thinning from his hairline to his crown, and was heading towards a class 5. After establishing his medical history and understanding the progression of his hair loss, I diagnosed his condition as Androgenetic Alopecia (male pattern baldness), ruling out any other possible dermatological or medical conditions which can cause hair loss. His goal was to reconstruct his hairline, add density from the hairline to the crown and wanted to be able to keep his donor area very short.

 

I needed to take in to consideration his age of 37, present degree of hair loss and possible further hair loss. We both agreed that it would be best to still keep some temple recession so it looks appropriate for him today but also looks good as he continues to age. I advised him that it would be best for his situation to have a FUE procedure since his goal was to be able to keep the back very short That said, I also advised him that it would have to be done over 2 procedures. I also explained that there was a possibility that he could lose more of his own hair. If this was to happen, the transplanted hair would be able to stand alone and still look natural, but he would possibly need another procedure to replace what he lost.

 

During his 1st procedure we transplanted 2,092 FUE/ grafts. The breakdown was 1,063 single hair grafts, 906 double hair grafts and 123 triple hair grafts. All of the grafts in his 1st procedure were concentrated into the frontal 1/3 of his scalp. His 2nd procedure was completed one year later and we addressed the mid and crown area. We transplanted 2,079 FUE/grafts with his 2nd procedure. The breakdown was 968 single hair grafts, 897 double hair grafts and 214 3 hair grafts. The patient is extremely happy with his results and can style his hair exactly the way he wants to.

    • Dredd, in your case medicines were mandatory because your androgenetic alopecia was miniaturizing also the donor area (it is a condition called DUPA and is more common than people think) and dr. Pekiner told you that many times. Not only you did not take Finasteride and Minoxidil as prescribed, you even started minoxidil on and off, that is worse than not taking it at all. You said you got Finasteride driven depression after 2 weeks of usage, which looks rather unlikely. You said you got side effects from Minoxidil and even from Xpecia that is a mild Saw Palmetto supplement. Dr. Pekiner also suspects you did not follow post surgery instructions, because you always behaved like you did not care, probably you were thinking that you just had to pay the money to the surgeon and get the results without being annoyed by medicines and post operative care. But the first month after the operation is the most important one. It is like a fat man not following post operative instructions after a liposuction and starting to eat pies and donuts and lift heavy weights the day after. Surgery doesn't work this way, you must follow and trust doctor instruction and advices, it is not like "this is your money doc, now I want the problem solved". At the end we have some suspects but we don't know exactly what happened, while you look so sure it was all dr. Pekiner's failure and like 2 weeks ago you started to feel the urge to inform the whole world.   Please don't worry about this Lixin. I also invite other dr. Pekiner's future patient not to fall prey of a free shooter only interested in destroying the clinic reputation. I will start posting all the clinic good cases in this forum as well, I just need a little time. Please check all the surgeries before and after both of Dredd's operations and you will see 3 perfect frontal dense packs and 1 norwood 6 reconstruction in 2 steps.   As I specified before, this case was not treated at an extreme density of more than 50 grafts per cm2, which is often called super dense pack. It was a "classic" high density of around 50 grafts per cm2. DHI method, that is basically a marketing term coined for incisions and implantations via implanter pens, shares the same philosophy of the stick and place technique used by dr. Pekiner, that is placing the graft immediately after opening the channel. Having said that, there are many other clinics, using different techniques, like lateral slit with custom blade made incisions, or placers instead of implanters, that can achieve great density all the same.
    • More than 12 months to start growing.  Body hair supposedly has different growth cycles.  Beard hair is different, thicker and should be placed back behind the hair line. 
    • There was a Bisanga case posted recently on the forum and the results looked great (especially given the guys starting point - quite phenomenal really). I believe Keser doesnt like using beard hair etc citing it doesn't look completely natural, while the results I've seen from Lorenzo are pretty good insofar as they offer patients some kind of improvement and conceal any issues. Rare to see many examples of it though. Surgeons seem to have vastly different approaches to it. Given fin has an effect on body hair I wonder if doctors request patients to stop taking the drug? I'd also be curious to know if different body hair works better on different regions of the scalp Good thread idea @Melvin-Moderator
    • Really? Just to START growing?
    • I've had arm, leg, chest and beard and they do grow.  Some of it took more than 12 months to start growing.
