#BAM 3 Year Follow-Up from Frontal FUE" 2336 FUE (Carlos K. Wesley, MD)

Recommended Posts

#BeforeAndAfterMondays

 

This male patient underwent a follicular unit extraction (FUE) session with Dr. Carlos K. Wesley in which a total of 2336 grafts were placed.

 

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.

 

The patient returned three years after his procedure and images of the patient can be seen below.
