Dr. Hasson /7410 Grafts/ FUT/ 1 Session/ 1 year post-op

Recommended Posts

Vancouver area patient in his early 40’s. Above average donor hair, fine to medium in texture. Dr. Hasson and team transplanted 7410 grafts front to crown via FUT. 2094 were single hair grafts, 4955 were doubles and 361 were 3-4 hair grafts. These photos were taken 1-year post-op.

Wow, a lot of grafts and really a new Person. What a difference hair makes...

Absolutely amazing results, I would love to see the placement of the strip. I know sometimes the strip is actually better suited to be higher up due to retrograde alopecia. Not sure if that’s the case for this patient. Regardless, the work is superb.

Why did the surgeon take hair all the way up toward the temples??

 

Could have have any negative effects on the patient in the future?

 

Great Result though. He looks completely different.

Just out of curiosity why do you guys have 2 different blues for backgrounds for comparison pictures?

 

Also, why do the patients skin tones contrast in the comparison pictures.

 

Just wondering... Another great result like always!

Correct, retrograde loss can reduce the area of good donor hair and for that reason alone it is better to a take strip higher in the donor area. Another good reason is that the scalp tissue higher up is more stable than the tissue closer to the ears. The tissue closer to the ears tends to be less like the scalp and can be prone to stretching which can result in a wider scar. In order to maximize yield, the doctor attempts to take as long and as wide a strip as safely as possible. This will often result in an incision that is closer to the temples. Dr. Hasson carefully and meticulously checks of the donor hair and can determine with uncanny certainty which hair is “permanent”. In some cases the permanent zone is quite high up on the head and quite far forward. His incision will always fall short of the end of the permanent zone and therefore the scar will never be exposed with any future potential hair loss. I've seen thousands of procedures, many of which were performed in a similar manner such as this and 16 years and counting I have yet to see a scar become exposed. As far as could this have any negative effects on the patient in the future? I would say the simple answer is no in the hands of our capable surgeons. If a particular surgeon was to miscalculate this equation and a very small portion of the scar in the temple area was to one day be exposed, a very small FUE procedure could be employed to reconstruct the small area in front of the scar to hide it. But, again this has never been necessary in our clinic but it does give the patient a bit of protection in the unlikely worst-case scenario.

We are forever trying to improve the quality of our photos. We have set up an area of the clinic exclusively for taking post-op videos and photos. However, there is also an area right outside the OR’s where the doctors or staff take photos in the morning before the procedure. Some factors can affect the photos such as how much outside light is coming in that area at any given time. In some cases the post-op photos are taken in another location and lighting can slightly vary and effect the skin tones. We have also experimented with different backgrounds so there may be before photos taken with one background and post-op with another. We try and match them as best we can. I hope you will agree that while the sets of photos do not always match up exactly, the quality, detail and consistency of our photos is second to none when it comes to these presentations.

errrr....it's common practice for hair restoration surgeons to use 2 different background tone colors when taking before and after pics. The 2nd background - the 'after' pic - is usually a few tones darker to reduce contrast and enhance the esthetics of the transplant. I have no problem with clinics using this 'trick' but let's be open about it.

Kirkland,

 

I don’t know what common practice is and I can’t speak for other clinics but this “trick” is not something we ever employed at Hasson and Wong. I took photos in the same place with essentially the same background for the better part of 15 years. The only exception was when the area would get painted every 5 -10 years. We have nothing to hide. We “enhance the esthetics of the transplant” in the operating room…:)

As much as I like Hasson and Wong, this has been the case with every result they're posting recently.

 

It's fine if they're experimenting with things, but it seems to have gone on for more than a year now so it doesn't make sense at this point other than that they're being manipulative. Time to get it consistent.

 

That said, it is a great result as per usual regardless.

I think everyone is being a little too critical here.

 

Are you telling me you wouldn't go to H&W because their result pics are "enhanced" because the backdrop they use is a slightly different shade and you might not get a similar result? come on people, the difference is dramatic enough to not care about the backdrop...

Thank you hairlossPA, I agree of course:)

 

 

Gasthoerer, it is not risky, see my May 14 comments.

Wow, that’s incredible. Would you consider his donor above average or are lifetime graft averages ticking up as the technology improves?

PeloDinero,

Yes, his donor was above average and on the upper end of the rating scale. Most do not have his donor reserves. I would say the efficiency of the harvest has allowed for a larger donor bank but these efficiencies/technologies at our clinic are nothing new and have been in place for many years. One important factor is our ability to harvest a large number of grafts in session one. The fewer interventions, the more efficient. For instance, if we figured he has 10,500 total grafts to start, we would be able to access all of those with a very large session (5,000 +) and 1-2 subsequent procedures. If our skill and technology limited our sessions to 2,500 to 3,000 grafts or less, we would not likely be able to access all of the 10,500 grafts.
