Very kind. Thank you
I only hope that others receive the same satisfaction from their procedures as I have from mine. For years my daily routine consisted of literally spray painting my scalp with root concealer and then adding hair fibers all to create the illusion of a full head of hair. And I would constantly be concerned in rain, wind, or hot/humid conditions. To have all that behind me feels amazing.
Interesting...I never thought of it as a method but that exactly how mine was done 4 years ago. I had 2 procedures. The only difference was on the first one he used a manual punch and implanter tool with premade slits. The second for some reason he switched to a motorized punch extraction. But it does look natural!
This is not a before/after. This is simply a patient we performed a two day, 5000 FUE graft case last week. The reason I am presenting this is that this patient previously went to a local plastic surgeon who had just obtained an ARTAS machine, and is marketing heavily here in the Charleston, SC area. During his consultation with the ARTAS clinic, he indicated he wanted coverage both in the crown and frontal area, and was told by the consultant (not the plastic surgeon), that complete coverage could be obtained with 1500 grafts. Looking online afterwards, he realized this was an absurd quote, and ended up coming to us. The point is for prospective patients to do their research before (and after) a consultation because there is some inaccurate information being given out, and just because someone has a machine does not make them qualified to perform the procedure.
That’s why, when you look at the really dense hairlines, a lot of them are done with the DHI method. Is that why we are seeing some sub-par hairline results from some of the big clinics? ( not mentioning any names ) Is it because they are trying to cram in too many grafts using lateral incisions method?
Sorry this doesn’t help the op, but it’s worth discussing maybe on another thread.
