This 45-year-old man underwent a follicular unit extraction (FUE) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 2071 grafts were placed

 

His hair follicles were incubated in autologous (his own) 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.

 

This patient had a prior FUE with the ARTAS Robot. This left his donor with a well-defined block that had been aggressively harvested and one aspect of his FUE revision with our group was to soften the appearance of his donor area. Dr. Wesley used a smaller caliber hand-held motorized punch to performed the donor harvest. This approach better enabled the capture of donor hair roots that are slightly curved beneath the skin surface. Upon completion of the harvest, the patient’s donor area was treated with PRP and ACell in order to not only minimize scar tissue formation, but also encourage partial regeneration of donor hair follicles.

 

The patient returned 12 days after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.

Thanks for posting. My donor has that defined rectangular shape too from the artas robot. I researched and haven't seen much on the internet about blending out the rectangle donor area. So this is great to see.
