This patient from the Los Angeles area desired to have his hairline and frontal area of his scalp transplanted to restore his hair in those areas.

 

3655 follicular unit grafts were transplanted into the frontal hairline region in one session. The photographs demonstrate his appearance before the transplant and at his one-year follow up visit. Additionally, we included close-up photographs of the hairline and transplanted area in the frontal region of the scalp.

 

The patient is on finasteride and minoxidil which are helping to maintain his natural hair – in fact, he has had an excellent response to the medications which have thickened his hair. The patient is very active in sports and is extremely satisfied with the results he has obtained as he feels he has gained a more youthful appearance by framing his face with the transplanted hairs and boosted his overall confidence.

I love these videos it just tells more of the story dont it? I

demand more videos from clinics as I would rather see videos than badly taken photo's under bad lightning.

Now for this patient yep Dr done a fine job but must be noted that he sure did have some real dense donor chararistics with proberly a lot of 3 & 4s plus I agree that this young patient who also responded well on meds, so IMO he had above average going for him.

great job doctor.

Very nice. I assume placement was in the frontal 3rd and behind the hair line some? Nice outcome. I would shorten the hair if I were the pt and look for that sweet spot. The result is plenty dense enough for that.

Dr. Gabel, it's nice to see you presenting high-quality videos in addition to your photos. It certainly proves the kind of exceptional work that you are right girlie doing. Given that it is now 2016, I truly believe that all physicians should be employing the use of video and presenting them on this community to show off examples of their results.

 

Besides in addition to taking photos and presenting them on each physician recommendation profile, we also take the videos doctors present on this forum and add them to each doctor recommendation and Coalition profile. This will certainly help patients see the kind of exceptional work you and other doctors we recommend regularly do.

 

Keep up the great work.

 

Bill

@ontop: I agree with you that this patient not only has "above average going for him" and even more so has excellent hair characteristics such as hair shaft diameter, color, and area that was transplanted in his favor. However, if the transplant is not done well, and the grafts are not placed correctly, and the grafts don't survive, then hair characteristics aside, they will not obtain the results they wanted. In this patient's case, his hair characteristics are optimal for a hair transplant, and the surgery was very successful giving him a fantastic result.

 

@spanker: Yes: placement was in the frontal 1/3. One of the reasons he had the transplant was to grow his hair long and he loves it now - that is his style.

 

@Pete-from-Farjo and @David and @Biz: Thank you for positive feedback

 

@Mickey85: I will prepare some immediate postoperative photos and post them. And I appreciate the positive comments as well. My team and I take great pride in making sure the grafts are prepared and placed perfectly. My lead tech as over 14 years experience in hair restoration and yes: I still place grafts on my patients.
