6,150 grafts done over three sessions with Dr. Rosanelli Strip Harvest

Recommended Posts

Preoperatively, the patient was extremely devastated by his hairloss and especially his lack of symmetry, which obviously led to uncomfortable stares and questions. Patient is a national radio talk show host and also does small amount of TV. He would always wear a hat to cover his hairloss. We started his restoration in November 2013, and completed his surgery in 2015. I spoke with the patient just last week and got permission to use his story. He is extremely happy and satisfied and may return for additional follow up photos.

Patient came in October 2013 for an evaluation of hairloss that he suffered after craniotomy and radiation therapy for brain tumor. He had been evaluated previously by 2 other Bay Area physicians and told that he was not a candidate for hair restoration. His recollection was that he was told the hair would not grow due to the condition of the scalp following radiation. After exam and planning, I proceeded with a multiple session procedure so as to maximize graft survival, naturalness of results, and as much coverage as possible. In the first two procedures, we transplanted 4505 grafts (session 1 was 2400 grafts; session 2 was 2105 grafts).  The first two sessions were 6 months apart. Initially, I told the patient that we would not have enough donor for the crown, however, when the patient returned approximately 10 months after session 2, he said he was mostly satisfied with his hairline, frontal scalp, and mid scalp density, but he was really bothered by his bald crown. We did 1645 grafts in session 3 with the majority (approximately 1145 grafts) to the crown and left posterior mid scalp and left parietal areas.

Looks very nice.  I had a mega-surgery (5,125 grafts) over 3 straight days in 2012.  Melvin is right.....very age appropriate.  Congratulations.
