Filling it In 31-Year-Old Man (2005 grafts): Carlos K. Wesley, M.D. (NYC & LA)

Recommended Posts

This 31-year-old man underwent a follicular unit transplantation (FUT) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 2005 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.

It is important to note the planning involved with this young male patient. In anticipation of future hair loss, the surgical design was rather conservative in order to ensure a natural pattern later in his lifetime even after much of his pre-existing hair has been lost.

The patient returned 1 year after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.
