Non-Shaven Reversal of a Thinning Hairline(FUT 2266):Carlos K. Wesley, M.D.(NYC & LA)

Recommended Posts

A 42-year-old man wanted to refine his markedly-thinning hairline. He underwent a follicular unit transplantation (FUT) session in which a total of 2266 grafts were used in the design.

 

The patient returned one year after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below. As with all of Dr. Wesley’s patients, he was NOT required to cut his hair for the procedure. As a result, this patient was able to return comfortably to work and social activities within approximately 10 days of his procedure.

This is a very impressive result. Would there happen to be any photos of the back of this patient's head showing the status of the linear scar?

thats too few grafts imo to risk a strip scar. was a perfect candidate for FUE. looks great nonetheless. id be interested in the linear scar as well and not one with his long hair covering it.

Thanks for your comments.

 

It should have been pointed out that this patient was a revision surgery after previously having an FUT at another hair clinic. Therefore, his FUT procedure with us included not only an increase in recipient area density, but also a revision of his prior FUT scar. Importantly, I take out the prior FUT scar and reduce it rather than creating multiple scars in the donor area. I have included images (distant and close) of the patient's donor area a few months after his FUT procedure with me.
