Dr. Wong / 846 grafts / FUE / Crown only / 2 years post-op

Recommended Posts

While the crown was the only area restored, this Vancouver area patient was gracious enough to let us use his photos so I have included a shot from the front for added perspective. In his 30’s he was particularly bothered by the crown. He liked to wear his hair short and this factored in the decision to have FUE as his preferred method of extraction. Average texture hair with a higher than average donor density. A total of 846 grafts were used of which 48 were singles, 359 were doubles and 439 were 3 hair grafts. A 0.9 mm motorized punch was used. These photos were taken just short of 2 years post-op.

wow Doug....that looks great for so relatively few grafts. that's pretty much what I need in the same exact area. i am getting married in early Nov and am hesitant to do it now worried it would not be fully back to normal by Nov. About how long was the patient "face down" in the chair to remove 846 grafts and how long in the chair total? Have you ever heard if there is any practical alternative to face down removal of grafts with FUE?

Thanks for the comments guys.

 

Shampoo,

Congrats on the wedding! Not only would it be back to normal (you'll look normal much sooner), you’d have some nice growth by November if you had a procedure by the end of April/May. This patient was “face down for around 1.5 to 2 hours. A total of around 5 hours from start to finish to complete the procedure. Some alternatives to the face down are being explored but nothing implemented yet.

 

Spanker/Sadhairlossman/hockeyman,

He used Proscar off and on over the years and restarted it orally about 4 months before his procedure.

Could you please let me know the following:
1. what was the coverage area in cm square?
2. average density transplanted in this case?

 

Thanks

Unreal! I had like 5000 put in my crown by a doctor from this site with less results...   how did 800 grafts do this?

I would guess this "He used Proscar off and on over the years and restarted it orally about 4 months before his procedure." has a lot to with how did 800 grafts did this

Whiskey,

Coverage area and density would only be estimates and I’m not sure it is that relevant. We get these questions about grafts per sq cm from time to time but factors such as hair shaft diameter can make one 45 grafts per sq centimeter result look thicker than a result packed at 60 per sq cm. For this reason, the numbers are not as important and can be deceiving so we don’t place emphasis on them. In the end, a certain amount of density is required for a natural result and the doctors will place the appropriate density for each particular case.

 

Gasthoerer,

I have more pics but not anything much different than is presented here. Would you like to see some grafts before insertion?

 

Sean, 

I agree.

 

Densedream,

I think the simple answer could be twofold. Keeping in mind we can harvest larger sized grafts with FUE and he had a large number of 3-4 hair grafts, we can conclude this 846 grafts FUE is comparable to 1,000 to 1,100 grafts FUT. Also, as Tundra has pointed out, it is possible some of his fine hair could have responded nicely to the medication and had a hand in the improved the overall density.

    • Dredd, in your case medicines were mandatory because your androgenetic alopecia was miniaturizing also the donor area (it is a condition called DUPA and is more common than people think) and dr. Pekiner told you that many times. Not only you did not take Finasteride and Minoxidil as prescribed, you even started minoxidil on and off, that is worse than not taking it at all. You said you got Finasteride driven depression after 2 weeks of usage, which looks rather unlikely. You said you got side effects from Minoxidil and even from Xpecia that is a mild Saw Palmetto supplement. Dr. Pekiner also suspects you did not follow post surgery instructions, because you always behaved like you did not care, probably you were thinking that you just had to pay the money to the surgeon and get the results without being annoyed by medicines and post operative care. But the first month after the operation is the most important one. It is like a fat man not following post operative instructions after a liposuction and starting to eat pies and donuts and lift heavy weights the day after. Surgery doesn't work this way, you must follow and trust doctor instruction and advices, it is not like "this is your money doc, now I want the problem solved". At the end we have some suspects but we don't know exactly what happened, while you look so sure it was all dr. Pekiner's failure and like 2 weeks ago you started to feel the urge to inform the whole world.   Please don't worry about this Lixin. I also invite other dr. Pekiner's future patient not to fall prey of a free shooter only interested in destroying the clinic reputation. I will start posting all the clinic good cases in this forum as well, I just need a little time. Please check all the surgeries before and after both of Dredd's operations and you will see 3 perfect frontal dense packs and 1 norwood 6 reconstruction in 2 steps.   As I specified before, this case was not treated at an extreme density of more than 50 grafts per cm2, which is often called super dense pack. It was a "classic" high density of around 50 grafts per cm2. DHI method, that is basically a marketing term coined for incisions and implantations via implanter pens, shares the same philosophy of the stick and place technique used by dr. Pekiner, that is placing the graft immediately after opening the channel. Having said that, there are many other clinics, using different techniques, like lateral slit with custom blade made incisions, or placers instead of implanters, that can achieve great density all the same.
    • More than 12 months to start growing.  Body hair supposedly has different growth cycles.  Beard hair is different, thicker and should be placed back behind the hair line. 
    • There was a Bisanga case posted recently on the forum and the results looked great (especially given the guys starting point - quite phenomenal really). I believe Keser doesnt like using beard hair etc citing it doesn't look completely natural, while the results I've seen from Lorenzo are pretty good insofar as they offer patients some kind of improvement and conceal any issues. Rare to see many examples of it though. Surgeons seem to have vastly different approaches to it. Given fin has an effect on body hair I wonder if doctors request patients to stop taking the drug? I'd also be curious to know if different body hair works better on different regions of the scalp Good thread idea @Melvin-Moderator
    • Really? Just to START growing?
    • I've had arm, leg, chest and beard and they do grow.  Some of it took more than 12 months to start growing.
