My Hair Transplant Results with Dr Hasson

Recommended Posts

I had a hair transplant with Dr Hasson about 8-9 months ago. He transplanted about 4500 grafts and placed them on my forehead and crown. Before and after pics are attached. It is hard for me to be impartial as I have obviously watched this transformation take place over a slow, gradual amount of time. I am curious what kind of objective feedback others could provide.

 

Only my wife is aware that I had the procedure. I work from home and was able to hide myself away during the healing process. Nobody has said anything to me about having had a procedure. Most of my family know I have been using meds for many years and I just assume they think the meds are working wonders! Needless to say, by keeping this under wraps I have had very little feedback so this is part of why I am reaching out. Also, I would like to offer any support and answer any questions others may have if they are in a similar circumstance as me.

 

All photos were taken with similar hair lengths and with freshly washed hair (no thickeners or products in hair at all) and under the same lighting.

That was my first question. Where were the grafts placed? I see a big difference in the front but the mid-scalp doesn't look any different to me. Were any grafts put in the back?

Good questions. The lion's share of the grafts obviously went to the forehead. I believe the breakdown was roughly 3500 up front and 1000 in the crown area. The bridge of existing hair across the middle (between the forehead and crown) was left untouched.

 

Here is a photo from 1 week out.

It looks good but, in all honestly, I would have expected more density with that many grafts. Of course, we're looking at a top down view which skews it a bit.

 

No doubt the end result is very dependent on the "quality" of your donor hair. You may have a low number of hairs per follicle or maybe not a lot of hair shaft thickness. And, I'm sure you still have some more growing/thickening to do as the transplanted hairs mature since you're only around the 9 month mark, so it's a bit early to judge the final result right now. I didn't have much new growth after month 9 but my hairs continued to thicken up to month 12.

 

That said, the transformation so far from where you started is pretty dramatic and I'm sure from straight on, it looks awesome!

Your mid-scalp looks the quite strong pre-op in pic #2. I'd be curious exactly how many grafts were placed in the crown as well. Remember, you'll still see some nice maturation over the subsequent months even if new hairs emerging will start to or have already slowed.

Spamdoozle,

 

Thanks for updating the forum with your photos as others have commented the front shows a significant improvement and the crown does have more hair as I can see the way the hairs are growing in the whorl pattern that Dr Hasson designed.

 

Two things to note about the crown firstly the growth is slower here than at the front and more patience is needed so please wait for at least 12 months before assessing this area. Secondly 1000 grafts is not going to have a big impact where no scalp would be visible. The crown is called the black hole for a reason as the surface shape requires so many more grafts to get the same level of appearance as the front. Are you able to schedule a follow up with Dr Hasson when you get to the one year mark it we would like to see you.
