Dr. Hasson- Dense pack hairline – Which one is FUE? Which one is FUT?

Recommended Posts

Many have recognized Hasson and Wong as the leaders in hair restoration for many years, especially associated with FUT. However, it is only more recently that we have perfected FUE. Many still associate us with FUT and our FUE skill and proficiency may be overlooked.

Dr. Hasson feels that FUE technology has caught up with FUT and we can now produce an equally impressive result with either method all things being equal. While the process by which the grafts are extracted has been dramatically improved and is the key to producing a high-quality graft, the artistry and technical skills required to produce these industry leading results still remain the same. Even perfect grafts without proper hairline design, precise angle and direction control, dense packing etc. will not achieve the desired outcome. We thought it would be interesting to present two cases. One is a FUT, the other is an FUE. Both in the 2000-2,500 graft range. I think both look exceptional. Can you tell which one is FUE and which one is FUT? Let me know what you guess and we’ll see the results and reveal which one is which later.

It’s great such a world renowned clinic such as H&W is presenting more and more FUE cases. It only benefits us patients to have more options both procedures have their place in the industry.

The doctor only does incisions

 

 

Is that okay then? I’ve read the doctors should do the extractions and if anything the assistants implant that grafts

The more doctor involvement the better (in general). The assistants can be good/not very good, and there is no way to know beofore the OP. Unless you research/ask the doctor who the assistant will be and decide from there. The doctors want to have the best assistants they can of course but some are in the learning phase etc. we never know. This is a big weak spot in the industry at the moment in my opinion. I hope one day the assistant will be brought more into the spotlight and recognized as a big part of a good HT team.

“Great results. For fue does the doctor do the extractions?”

 

“Is that okay then? I’ve read the doctors should do the extractions and if anything the assistants implant that grafts”

 

 

I know this can be a topic of great interest here.

 

Let me give you my take based on all the knowledge I have gained since 2001. I’ve seen firsthand what happens at our clinic over the last 15+ years. I believe we have some of the most talented technicians in the industry and I see what a large team effort it takes to produce the high-quality results we that we have become our famous for.

 

If I’m researching a doctor and clinic and I see their results are consistently the best and I would be confident and happy with their work, I trust that these results don’t come by accident. I can conclude the doctor takes his reputation and the care he will provide the patient very seriously. While I should research extensively, I also realize there are things I’m not going to know or understand that the I trust doctor will. I also keep in mind that In a large procedure, there can be well over 50-60 man hours involved so it is a big team effort. So for the one session transformation, many of our patients come to expect and desire, a doctor can’t possibly achieve this on his own. The doctor will still oversee the whole procedure and perform among other things the critical aspects such as designing the hairline and making the incisions which will control the angle and direction of all the transplanted hair. He’ll direct the technicians where to place which grafts and essentially control and oversee the whole process. I also know all doctors are not created equal. I realize they all want to make a living and want my business. While they do exist and I give high credit to those few who will admit: “ I can’t do what Hasson and Wong can do” they are few and far between. So doctor “B” who doesn’t achieve nearly the same results as doctor “A” might say: well doctor “A” does not do his own extractions, I do. He may also add he can achieve a similar result to doctor "A". While I understand this and he wants my business, give me doctor “A” every time. It is for this reason I also have to be careful to sift through both layman and medical professionals opinions.

 

Do your proper research and choose the right capable doctor and clinic, trust him to know who on his team is best qualified to execute which critical part of the process to ensure the best possible outcome. If this involves him doing all the work himself then so be it. If his work is good and you’re comfortable with him then by all means. Just know what the limitations may be. If they don’t affect the final result then great. Also, don’t make the mistake of thinking the doctor has a better skill set and talent for every single aspect of the process. They may or may not depending on their skill level and the skill level of their staff. Do I want the star player on the team to also drive the team bus when there may be someone in the organization that is a better driver and can get the team to the game faster and safer? I might want his talents employed elsewhere. Give me a specialist for a specific job rather than a jack of all trades.

 

Now, back to the intent of this thread!

I think the second one is FUE, if I’m right do I get to lunch with Dr. Hasson and Dr. Wong when I visit Vancouver this year? Lol
