The Advantage to Patients of NOT Shaving the Recipient Area (2499 Grafts): Carlos K.

Recommended Posts

This 65-year-old man underwent a follicular unit transplantation (FUT) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 2499 grafts were placed

 

The patient’s hair follicles were incubated in platelet rich plasma (PRP) throughout the duration of the procedure. This, combined with an ATP-containing storage solution has been shown to enhance survival of transplanted hairs.

 

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 7-10 days of his procedure.

Great result!  Certainly it is appealing for the patient to not have to shave.  Would it make it any easier on the surgeon to shave the recipient region?

For 2.5k grafts, I'd imagine a way better result.

 

I think Dr. Wesley has been providing sub par results lately (at least the ones he is posting). 

 

Can we see photo of the graft placement?
