The patient should not be worrying about dying the hair if the plan is for a buzz-cut FUE harvest. Dying long hair that will be clipped is pointless as the hair will continue to grow after it is dyed. If the procedure is a few days after the dye, all that will be left for the surgeon to see will be a white stubble. Also, even professional dyes have a hard time getting to the base of the hair shaft. The surgical team should dye the white stubble after buzzing and before harvesting. This easily colors the stubble to show hair direction and angle, thereby making extraction as easy as with dark hair. The attached file shows snow-white hair which was dyed immediately prior to the harvest. The hair shafts are quite easy to see.
Mr. Satish Menon, CEO of cricket club, Kings XI Punjab, India, is a 61 year old man who had his surgery with us on 29.9.2017. He believed that he would never be able to get a natural hairline and density. However, he proved himself wrong when he achieved his final results of the transplantation procedure with us.
We restored his frontal zone and the number of grafts used were:
Scalp donor - 3491
Mr. Menon was one of the patients who experienced a direct growth sans the shedding phase of the transplanted follicles. Within three months he had already had his first haircut when he visited us for a follow up. It is not unusual for the patients to achieve a direct growth when they undergo the Direct Hair Transplantation technique.
