#Before&AfterMondays

 

This 45-year-old man underwent 2 separate follicular unit extraction (FUE) sessions with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 4583 grafts were placed. The first session focused on the front of his scalp and the second on his mid scalp.

 

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.

 

Rather than a larger FUE punch used by a robotic approach, 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.

 

Images of the patient can be seen below.

Nice result Dr. Wesley. Your patient reminds me of my hair loss (NW6) prior to my 2012 surgery of 5,000+ grafts. I’m sure your patient is quite pleased.

Donor area looks good.  Very similar to mine after about 5,000 total grafts.
